    2020 Election Thoughts

    "With prejudice" loosely translated means "if you don't get the fuck out of my courtroom, and do not bring this nonsense in front of a federal judge again"

    Quick Hit, would you take a vaccine?

    I'm gonna have to talk my wife into getting it because there's some hesitation on her part, but she is also scared to get the virus, so she is gonna have to cave

    I'll do it, I'm a very pro-vaccine person, I just don't wanna be the first to do it. A lot of my friends are skeptical but Black folks are like that about vaccines because *gestures broadly at Tuskegee experiments, Henrietta Lacks, entire history of the United States, etc*

    2019 Video Game Thread

    Lucky enough to have both consoles so far. I like both Sony and Microsoft (I guess I leaned more towards Microsoft in the mid 2000s which I think was the golden era of Xbox) so I don't really have loyalties one way or the other. For Playstation it's all about the exclusives, as it always has been, for Microsoft, Game Pass is amazing. Plus the Series X is def pushing more horsepower (slightly faster SSD on the PS5) so for multiplatform games I'm getting the Xbox versions of most things. The Series X is more powerful than my PC right now (Ryzen 7 2700x with GTZ 1070, so a lot more powerful unless I got like a 3080 or something like that). Also the PS5 is GIGANTIC. Geeeeeez.
  6. I watched all or part of probably 90% of the games this season, I haven't done anything like that in years. Like I think 2008 was probably the last time I did.
  7. I feel like Ozzie would have to be dragged kicking and screaming into modern perspectives on baseball, a lot's changed since he managed the Sox and he didn't seem to be very receptive to those kinds of suggestions back then either.

    Crochet's arm fine

    Significant concern for his SHORT-TERM future, yes. Long-term future? nah. Maybe he is throwing 98.5 instead of 101

    I hope he doesn't need TJ surgery but that seems to be a rite of passage for all these guys anymore
  10. Janice is one of my favorite White Sox follows
  11. Another one of them there Abreu homers would be nice
  12. That's why I'm worried, yeah. Like is this short-term or long-term? I don't think it's an issue with his talent or playing ability or anything like that
  13. Worried, but not freaking out. I don't think last year was a fluke
  14. I'm a fan of Jason but a lot of times on hard-hit balls he will be like "and he hits a fly ball to left, that's deep left, and... ANDITISGONE!" like he realizes it belatedly even though it sounded like a 155mm howitzer coming off the bat
  15. I'm not worried about Robert's career trajectory at all, what he's going through is fairly normal and he's got enough talent to figure it out, it's just that it's coming at a really inopportune time for a contending team. This would probably just be a blip on a 162-game season, but in this year it's tanking his production completely.
  16. Dare I get hopeful that Reynaldo doesn't suck anymore?

    White Sox "Normal" Record

    With all due caveats that this is all hypothetical considering this is barely more than 1/3 of a season, for those of us wondering how this shortened season translates to a "regular" season I did a little math. 162/60 = 2.7 so each game counts for 2.7 games. Given that, the White Sox "regular" record right now is 89-46. Their current winning % is .660, so if you want to know how many games they're on pace to win, multiply that by 162, it's a pace for 107-55.

    Yeah that's what I meant lol anything more than this from him at this point is a bonus

    White Sox "Normal" Record

    There are a lot of variables about what could've gone different with another 102 games, but I think a lot of them even out -Kopech probably doesn't opt out -Bullpen not likely to be taxed as heavily over the course of a full season -Lopez still struggles, it's just not as glaring over 162 games -Dunning starts the season in AA/AAA and has more endurance before getting called up to the majors -Rodon is probably still Rodon either way -Other players likely to do IL stints -Robert regresses to mean like he is now, but has plenty of time to figure it out

    Sox vs Twins. 9/15 - 7:10

    He's going thru another one of those adjustment periods, in a mini-slump he'll probably come out of soon if his previous patterns are any indication

    1) I'm always impressed by how fast the social media teams get these up on twitter 2) that's almost the exact same spot TA hit to a couple innings ago

    I seem to remember him throwing several mph harder than he's doing right now, so if he's better than this... I mean...
