    8/4 Sox vs Brewers GT

    For a guy that averages less than 4 pitches an AB he has a lot of walks. He seems to see the ball well for a guy that has never seen any of these pitchers.

    Rodon to IL, Basabe DFA’d, Lail called up

    No one claimed Folty from the Braves who had an All-Star appearance. I don’t think anyone is claiming Basabe.

    8/3 Sox vs Brewers GT

    In all seriousness the bunting needs to end. I know he doesn't swing much on the 1st pitch but he will just get 1st pitch FB right down the middle if he keeps doing that.

    Alright Lou B💣b. Lets break this thing open.

    Those are not strikes.

    Eloy looks so much more comfortable up there than last year as a rookie. You can see it in his approach and the way he just lets the ball come to him and hits what is there. He did it in spurts last year, but he has pretty much looked like that in every AB so far this year. In complete control. And I don't know what to say about Lou B💣b. The guy is just incredible. I have not witnessed a rookie on the White Sox that looked this impressive their first 6 games. I was around for Frank Thomas as a rookie but waaaay to young to know what was going on. Robert has way better plate skills than I thought he would at this stage in his career. He can hit to all fields with extreme power, can lay off some nasty breaking stuff, hit pretty much any hanger out there, and the jumps he gets in CF are as good as advertised. Very excited to see Eloy, Robert & Moncada for awhile.

    Kopech sitting out 2020 - files for divorce

    That is some old school TOOL there. Not sure the song but definitely on Opiate.
  8. Same here. Not that I wasn't cognizant there was probably some injustice going on, but now I am just more aware of it and actually see it and acknowledge it.
  9. Well said and couldn't agree more. The talking heads that want to make this ONLY about police don't understand what this is all about. This is about being SEEN and HEARD as an equal. White privilege has nothing to do with having more money or success. It is about being able to live a normal life because our skin is white and if your skin color is different you are viewed differently. THAT is what needs to be changed. And this is a problem across any political persuasion you align yourself to. The police is a small part of a larger problem, albeit a part that helps keep POC down. Police system was built to keep POC down. The whole system is setup to keep POC down. KW was also right that black people can't do this on their own. They need white people, Asian people, Hispanic people, etc. The more voices of different backgrounds is the only way things get changed.

    Beat me to it. I feel like that is the part that most people that are protesting and refusing to wear a mask don't understand. It was never to protect you...it is to protect the people you interact with in case you are someone that is asymptomatic. All these Karen idiots refusing to wear masks at stores in public places just blow my mind. It is called PUBLIC health....meaning for the general PUBLIC. What you do in your own house is your own business but when you are in PUBLIC you should follow PUBLIC guidelines.

    I am sure they will. Only one that has a chance not to is Baskin because she has the money, but she pretty much does the same crap as the rest of them. All of these people are horrible people.

    Maybe I should have said the loudest. On both sides.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    To be fair most of the left is the same just in the opposite direction. I myself am independent as well because I don't identify with either party anymore. I would prefer government more in the middle. A president that could talk to both sides and come up with compromise that could help out both sides. I don't get why all of a sudden everyone needs to be correct and it is my way or the highway. Trump pretty much epitomizes what government has become...hence he gets elected pretty easily. I felt Klobuchar was the closest thing to someone I can align with politically.

    He would probably be richer if he just invested the money that he laundered in instead of creating all of the ventures that failed and went bankrupt.
