    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    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.

    **Water-Cooler Thread (TV stuff)**

    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.

    RIP Ed Farmer

    Same here. My guess is even during the break they keep the sound recording....so after the 10 second ID they rewound the tape and pointed to Farmer to go. If you listen carefully MAYBE the cheers happen a second early? But I agree, you would never know the difference. Rodewald would have no reason to make up the story....so I would have to believe him.
  7. Unfortunately it does. Once we get through this wave all summer sports can resume, but probably all with no fans. Economically most of the leagues make their money with the TV and advertising deals.

    RIP Ed Farmer

    I agree when Rooney and Farmer were together it was great. Farmer MUCH better color guy than PBP. I can't help think of '05 without thinking of some of Rooney and Farmer's calls. Quick Farmer story....I got to caddie for him once as a kid. He was a great guy, took time to talk to me even as a kid. He was especially enjoyable to talk to considering all I wanted to talk about was the White Sox. I think it was around '02 or '03. He was a very good golfer at that time as well...not sure how many times he played Olympia Fields CC, but he played pretty well for a guest. I wasn't as much of a fan of him with DJ, probably mostly because I think Farmer was better suited for color than PBP, but I will certainly miss his voice whenever regular life can resume. RIP Farmer, you will be missed by Sox Nation.

    Baseball America All 30 Farm Systems Ranked

    The Rays are unbelievable. They have lost Friedman (and I am sure he took guys with him to LAD) and Maddon (he was a manager but really got what they wanted to do down there) and they continue to do a fantastic job not only drafting, but finding value in players that no one wants. They have the #1 farm system and have still competed in AL East and WC over the last few years. It is really impressive.

    Sox @ Cubs | 2:05PM CT | WGN720

    His first game no? Most guys have only been going 1 inning first time out.

    Sox @ Cubs | 2:05PM CT | WGN720

    Which is to be expected. If you come in the league and instantly spit on those then you are even beyond Trout.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    I would say hold on to the luxury for this year and see where Collins is for backup role next year. Having a guy like McCann adds to your flexibility of using Grandal at 1B and saving his legs while still using his bat. If Collins shows he improves as a catcher then you might be able to get an even better return near the deadline for McCann for a desperate team.

    Reinsdorf makes money off Cubs network

    I heard that interview as well. Even though it is the Cubs, I am surprised Crane Kenney keeps coming on to face the music of Cubs not being on Comcast yet. Unfortunately for them, I think they will have to cave and give the terms that Comcast wants unless they want to go past Opening Day.

    Also pretty popular as a Cub too.
