  1. Crazy news. Did NOT expect this at all.
  2. I have a meeting from 2-3 today at work but you better be sure I will be checking my phone throughout. Hopefully they don't ask me anything!
  3. Not to mention dealing with all the other symptoms that come with the virus and not knowing if your symptoms will get worse for days and sometimes weeks. People that down play the virus are almost always people that have have not had the disease. They wouldn't have the same perspective if they would have had to face the reality of how menacing of a virus this actually is.
  4. Your line of thinking is exactly the reason why this country has seen almost 150k deaths from this virus. It should have been half that if we only would've operated even partially like many of the other countries that have limited the spread and/or eradicated themselves from it. But no, no, no, we can't show some good ol' self discipline and sacrifice for a couple months. People still have the right to go to Home depot breathing all over everyone else and go to bars and drink next to their fellow American because its the American way.
  5. We don't know for sure if this will be the breaking point to cancel the season but we all know it should be.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    This is one of the most scary parts about the potential of all of this. It could be worst case scenario that we aren't going to ever get to herd immunity because immunity doesn't last long. And if immunity doesn't last long in nature I don't think they believe the vaccine will be very effective either. We could be dealing with this for years with no end in sight.

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    I just never thought TA would be the monster at the plate that he has become. Gotta love it. Even in summer camp.

    Sox summer camp roster announced

    Since we live in a different world I am much more hopeful to see A LOT of summer camp footage within the same day. Is that going to happen at all on any platform?

    Feels like they are tickling your brain.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Cook County coroner data shows what you would expect in terms of age and comorbidities for novel coronavirus deaths. Almost all above the age of 55 with underlying health conditions. They update every day I believe here... https://datacatalog.cookcountyil.gov/Public-Safety/Medical-Examiner-Case-Archive/cjeq-bs86/data

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    The numbers will speak for themselves even before Easter that for the most part Trumps efforts to open back up will fall upon deaf ears, if he still is singing that tune. But again, for the most part. There will still be his loyal base that doesn't care about numbers. Ever. And will side with him no matter how many are dying.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    Thats pretty crazy that one fake random tweet gained traction like this. Usually it may get some talk on a message board but to have so much of twitter talking about it with no others jumping in as well, I just don't get it. Is it all because he guessed the Mookie info before others reported it as official?

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    What would have been his remaining controlled years if he didn’t sign this deal?

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    What is so terrible about Puigs stats that have people ripping on him here? He also has a cannon in the outfield, correct? If you don't like the guy because of his personality then I get it but to say "he sucks" is disingenuous.

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    Yes we know that but the Sox could also be feeding the three knuckle heads as well and it could be with a motive we aren't aware of. The off season is fun again so I am happy for that.

    Bruce doubles down.

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    Hector has always operated like he cared about his credibility. It doesnt seem like he would throw anything out there that he wasn't fairly certain on. He retweeted Bruces tweet from yesterday debunking Sox interest yet he came right back today regardless of Bruces source saying that they are interested? I would trust Hectors inside info over Bruce any day regarding latin talent.
  18. You gotta be f'in kidding me Hector.

    I’ve listened to Bruce for years. I honestly think he is like that because everyone gives him a hard time for either being wrong or uninformed , including his colleagues. So he is defensive and tries to over compensate.

    LOL at all the condescending comments from everyone towards Bruce on that tweet. People do not respect him at all. Ahahahaha

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    So our boy Hector Gomez shared an article linking the possibility of Puig to the Sox. Then added to a comment from a different post about the Sox possibly adding even more to their lineup after the EE signing. It seems as though he thinks that Puig is a real possibility. I just dont know why Puig would choose the Sox situation. Maybe just wants to win?

    Why would a platoon role improve Puigs stock for the future?
