  1. I hate doubleheaders and the shitty lineups and pitching decisions they inspire. This would be a nice time to break through the doubleheader-split-default that seems so powerful with this team, because if we can make some hay over the next couple series we could find ourselves in 1st place pretty quickly.

    I don't think the gate workers are scrutinizing the content of t-shirts for the FO's benefit, you're good. They only scan everyone's ticket in my group about half the time.
  3. Leave her alone. She's just stating a fact that's very oblivious. More than she probably even knows.
  4. Yes, obviously. Including you, apparently.

    Bobbleheads. My kids have become obsessed. We plan around them.
  6. Great - when am I supposed to get up and go to the bathroom now?

    Another series win. Haven't lost a series in a while. That seems good

    Cease AL Pitcher of the Month again

    Last year I never felt like we had a real "ace" I was confident could shut a team down in the playoffs. I feel like we have that this year, so far. Bodes well (if we can make it there).

    My feelings are ok, not sure how one can jump in “late” in a 1.5-page thread, and while I appreciate your attempted reframing, the exchange is pretty clear. Someone pointed out that Soxtalk complainers complained about the 2005 deadline move and said the team wasn’t good enough. You jumped to those 2005 complainers’ defense: “16.5 game lead too, nearly lost our lead and our fifth starter ran out of gas. Fans were right then too, always are, vs the people that pump sunshine into this shit group.” Saying fans were “right” to doubt the sufficiency of the 2005 Sox roster and deadline moves — when that team went on to win 99 games, dominate the playoffs, and win the World Series — is absurd. (Let alone the suggestion the fans “always are” right. Ha!) In fact, it’s as close to indisputably wrong as you can get on a baseball message board.

    GT 8/3: Outfielders? We don't need no stinking outfielders!

    I hate when rain delays ruin starts. They should just delay the start ffs

    I never thought I'd see the Soxtalk misery machine aimed backward at the 99-win, 11-1 postseason, world champion 2005 White Sox season but then the last few years have changed my expectations about the feasibility of a lot of things. So what the hell -- thanks a lot for that trade deadline, Kenny, our trophy could have been shinier!

    Feels like you’re leaving out a key detail.

    It’ll be hilarious when we’re in first place in a couple weeks. Just a laugh riot. I’ll buy a division championship tshirt totally ironically

    Hahn talking at 5:30

    If he said that he would've been taking ownership." But he didn't, really. I'm just hearing more of the "why can't other teams be more reasonable?!" whining

    While I'm pissed they didn't go get a real difference-maker, premium assets for rentals was my top-level fear. I'm "happier" standing pat than I would've been with worthless desperation moves.

    That's where I'm at. I think this team could actually contend. Rick and Kenny are not blameless, but they've been placed in an impossible situation. I'm just going to continue to hope this core can get healthy and wake up and soldier on despite TLR.

    You watched a lot of MTV between like 1989 and 1992, didn't you?

    It's so maddening. Why can't we just have a "normal" manager? Any manager hired through a normal process would be on the chopping block right now. Why do we have to have this weirdo nepotism experiment?

    That’s a disappointing and childish response, especially from a moderator. Oh well, I’ve said my piece, do with it what you will.

    Making fun of posters for their negativity (or positivity) about the play of the Chicago White Sox is not really a “personal attack” at all, though. Certainly not in the way that commenting on how someone’s family views them is. Maybe there are other actual personal attacks I’m not aware of, in which case I’d condemn them too.
  22. Following up a bad first half with a really good second half and making a deep playoff run is…not really all that weird. Sure, nothing about their play for the first half has indicated that they will go on a run…but that’s true of every underachieving first half team. I predicted a shitty first half and big second and I’m sticking to it.

    You’ve used this “your family must love” bit before. I agree with the target in this instance that it’s weird and inappropriate. Stick to baseball and leave “families” out of it.

    Replace “frustrating” with “encouraging” or “exciting” and I totally agree

    What Will it Take for You to Give Up?

    Yes, you shut your filthy mouth! All my Soxtalk friends and I have agreed that a .500 record in July is a totally unprecedented outrage. Right guys? (Looks around for high-fives).
