    These people are 3rd graders. And to think they feel justified because, "I'm not doing it behind your back". Has the country devolved this much? White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications and Director of Social Media posts cartoon and message on FB attacking the nation’s leading infectious disease expert for telling the truth about this deadly pandemic. https://facebook.com/1440616002820798/posts/2641476589401394/?d=n

    My wife had the TV on this past weekend and I don’t remember if it was fake news CNN or MSDNC, but they interviewed 5 pediatricians from all around the country and asked if they would feel safe sending their child to school this fall. 5 out of 5 said yes. But they all said there had to be social distancing and constant cleaning. Perhaps having gym class outside. One said that child to adult transmission is very rare, so teachers would really have to worry about staying away from other teachers. Another said HS students would probably have to wear masks but the younger students would not. It really surprised me. Of course they also all said things could change quickly.

    7/13 White Sox live stream GAME THREAD

    Jason just said Robert will make Eloy a better LF. I'm not so sure about that. Engel was pretty good with the glove.

    He's clearly not a 3B, but that is what these games are for.

    Kopech sitting out 2020

    It's amazing how many people want to make a big deal out of this. It's going to ruin everything.....If you don't have a problem with someone opting out, you really shouldn't have a problem with anyone opting out. If the guy has anxiety, the lockdown could have done a number on him. Judging him by tweets or rumors will make you look like a fool.

    Masur to replace Ed Farmer in booth

    He is established. Besides, Farmer died unexpectedly on April 1. Kind of hard to get the kind of "established" guy you are looking for after the season was supposed to start. I think Masur is good. The team makes hardly anything on radio broadcasts. They aren't going to spend a ton of money bringing a big name in. That's for TV.

    A mandate and actually making people wear them are 2 different things. There has been a mandate in IL for months. A couple of weeks ago, when I went out, I counted how many people wore masks out the the first 20 people I saw. The high for the week was 7. The low was 4. It was pretty steady at around 25%.

    First thing, make everyone wear a mask.

    The WH is going on a crusade to trash Fauci. And probably will still say everything is under control and the virus will go away once it gets warmer.

    Kopech sitting out 2020

    If you remember the lead up to Kopech’s first start, there was more buzz for that than any Chris Sale start during his White Sox career. Kopech day was huge 4 times. Of course having little else to look forward to had something to do with it. But he was definitely considered a savior.

    Doctors are really worried about long term effects the virus will have on players’ lungs and heart. Apparently even asymptomatic victims have wound up with some organ damage.

    They are also playing baseball with crowds in Taiwan. Those countries probably don’t test enough so the virus decided to go somewhere else

    A friend of mine knows someone significant In the Iowa athletic department. He told me this person told him they really do not expect to play football this fall. Hopefully in the spring.

    Coop has said some dumb stuff in the past, but this didn’t cross any line IMO. Kopech has acknowledged these issues in the past, Coop just said he hope he is OK.

    To be fair, his UCL was in the middle of being shredded. i do agree he was overhyped, basically made to be a savior. At least to me he has seemed a bit more mature since his injury.
