    STAR WARS Everything

    Got my tickets for opening night today - so much for having to pre-order a month in advance? People are weird. I'm so stoked; I'm going with another super STAR WARS nut friend of mine. I will likely have a mixture of emotion, chills, and pure glee for 2h 16m. I'm very excited. PS, playing The Battle of Jakku on Battlefront last night sure got me pumped for this post-Episode 6 world!

    Pritzker: 60% capacity is close

    This. Just start requiring the passport and watch the remaining holdouts get their vaccines.

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    This literally means nothing if you break it down.

    He's here because the manager doesn't control the 26 man active roster. He's not playing, because our manager has one foot in the grave and has been out of the game throughout the entire statistical revolution.

    exactly. a bunch of middle aged dudes on the internet predicted it the moment the insane hire was announced.

    It sucks. So much ass is sucked by the decision to allow this to happen. AJ Hinch was ready and willing to bring a 2021 strategy to this team, and we're out here with something worse than anything Ozzie Guillen was trying in his final years. I don't know how they expect Vaughn to get better riding the pine. I'm just beyond pissed at the start to this season, because the problems that we're facing are being forced upon the roster for no reason other than bad decisions. The Sox are signing Billy Hamilton in a post-Billy Hamilton MLB world for every other team in the league. Why can't they just play their best damn players.

    I'm so glad we hired Tony LaRussa so this team could be managed like a 1999 National League roster. We're plucking guys off the street and dumping them into our lineup over our top prospect whom we're burning a year of service time for in order to have available. He has hits in his last two appearances and a .353 OBP in 13 games, and he's sitting for career nomads when we're desperate for a bat like his in the lineup. The LaRussa hire can kiss my ass.
  9. Unbelievable. This is the most stacked Sox team of my lifetime, and it’s not particularly close.
  10. You don’t get the guaranteed producers by never dealing away prospects expecting everyone to turn into Shane Bieber. Also there’s nothing in the advanced metrics nor in how they pitch they likens Dunning to Bieber. Completely insane take.
  11. People can say what they want. For example, you can post this despite its inaccuracies and sadly no one can make you do some research first. You get to click. The agreement, however, is we get to reply. Adding a legitimate workhorse ace over Dunning and his career 34 innings and inability to go 6 is a marginal upgrade for this season is the shittest of takes ive read in awhile.
  12. You’re clearly ignorant of how good Lance Lynn is. Take a moment to educate yourself and then come back here. He puts any season Quintana’s thrown to complete shame.
  13. What on earth am I reading here. This is Dane Dunning ffs. Hahn turned Jose Quintana into Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease. Am I in the twilight zone?
  14. By this time next year, we have a better chance of hoping to open Sox World Champions gear on Christmas morning than we did 40 minutes ago. that’s the window we’re in now, not some pray the 26 year old nobody turns into the second coming window.
  15. Lynn, 33, has been excellent the last two years with the Rangers, delivering a combined 3.57 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 335 strikeouts in 292 1/3 innings (46 starts) while garnering down-ballot American League Cy Young Award votes. But yeah we gave up a 26 year old with 7 starts and 34 IP under his arm so Soxtalk is getting out the pitchforks. /s Negative reactions tonight are only one of two things: ignorant or insane. Can be both I guess.
  16. I would imagine the Rangers would’ve balked. Every report said their price was outrageous, and Dunning hadn’t done shit yet. we just go a horse who skits the rest of our rotation much better. This is a great night.
  17. Dane Dunning a low end 2? Homers be homin’ I guess.
  18. Wow. Some of the takes in this thread are just unreal. Dane Dunning flashed potential. So what? Lance Lynn is a bonafide ace who can throw 120 pitches every start. He’s the exact type of horse you bring in when you want to win a World Series. my only regret is they didn’t make this trade a few months ago because we’d have beaten the A’s.

    This is anti-Bulls so I sign off immediately.

    Obviously Frank is first. I said second best.

    White Sox @ Royals - 9/5/20 - 6:05 CT

    Is Jose the second best hitter we’ve ever had? I’m ready to discuss.
  22. Steve9347


    Holy shit, man. You want Hahn fired... now? The vision is finally coming together and you want him fired? Calm tf down. Ricky has to go. He will this off-season.

    Eh. Giolito's doing amazing things. I'd go 1B, but Lynn is one awesome fat fuck.
