    Steve/Jason appreciation post

    Steve's really dry but Jason brings the humor out in him in a way that never happened when he was paired with Hawk.

    AND THAT'S A WHITE SOX WINNER

    Jose Abreu is playing out of his mind right now. If he was playing a full season this is probably about a 45 home run pace (mathematically, 12 home runs over 31 games is 62 home runs but I know baseball doesn't actually work like that). So fun to see him actually hitting in a lineup where not only does he not have to carry most of the weight, he's maybe the 3rd or 4th best hitter.

    AND THAT'S A WHITE SOX NO HITTER WINNER

    Giolito was one of the very worst pitchers in baseball 2 years ago. Look at him now. Also Tim Anderson gets shit on for being a butcher in the field, and it's mostly justified, but he came through with one of the highlights of the season.

    Lucas was so amped, he was ready to throw his next pitch as soon as McCann caught it
  5. James is going to want someone's starter money and he's earned the shot to get it, and he is not going to get that with the Sox

    Thom Brennaman - ouch!

    Like a lot of people who grew up in the 80s and 90s I used to use that word casually because I thought it was funny and justified it by saying "I don't really mean it like THAT." But you learn better and you do better and I can count on one hand the number of times I've said it in the last 15-20 years, the only time I can think of was when I was telling someone "I used to use (that word)" and it felt like I was choking it out.

    I don't see what some other people see in Collins as far as offensive potential, what am I missing?

    Ok seriously, who here made this video?

    I remember thinking Ryan Bukvich was also as bad - Jesus no, not even close, Day had WHIP well over 2. That 2007 bullpen is the worst one in my memory, the starting pitching (except Contreras) was mostly passable but after 6 innings if the Sox didn't have a lead of at least 5 the game was over. If there's inherited runners ALL of them were going to score, plus a couple extra. All them had a ERA well over 6, it seemed like. Day, Bukvich, Macdougal, Wassermann, Sisco, Myers, just look at any of those guys, pick a randon name and look up their stats and it's awful.

    2020 Catch-All

    It was in the low 70s today for the first time in about 2 months where I was, 2600 miles away, therefore this is not real because my unique experience does not support it #PostLikeAFuckingIdiot

    Stone targets RR?

    This reminds me of when he ended his broadcast career with the Cubs, although he was way more direct back then than he's being right now.

    Leadoff Man going forward - TA or Robert?

    I look at this lineup and I'm like "Moncada probably a .900 OPS player and he's fifth?" and... well yeah probably, that checks out

    Pro: still have a job Con: can't really do anything, nothing to spend money on thanks to COVID-19 Pro: can use this extra money to finish basement sooner and have wet bar installed Con: Cannot actually have company over to justify this expense, thanks once again to COVID-19

    Leadoff Man going forward - TA or Robert?

    I think "whoops, my leadoff guy accidentally doubled or homered again" is a good problem to have

    Leadoff Man going forward - TA or Robert?

    I do think Robert projects long-term as a better leadoff hitter than TA but he is not that player yet. He still has some adjusting to do. TA is doing a fine job, and as much as I hate to use cliches like this, he brings a certain energy to the lineup and they're different with him in there.
  21. Ok I'm dumb, was there supposed to be a game tonight and it got kicked to tomorrow and there's going to be a doubleheader?
