    6/23- Sox at Rangers, 2:05, WGN

    I'm really happy with this season so far. Almost all of the young guys we expect to perform are performing (except Lopez). Giolito looks like an ace. The bullpen has been solid. The stopgap players have been garbage but who cares? They're hovering around .500 after losing 100 games last year and the starting pitching has been mostly terrible.

    I think some of you need anger management courses.

    Yankees vs White Sox Father's Day Gamethread

    Oh I'm definitely aware. It's just crazy. I'm not sure even the Astros have this kind of depth.

    That team is riddled with injuries and just optioned a guy with an .855 OPS.

    Abreu is just swinging at everything. It's like he's guessing.

    I agree with Jason here. It wasn't intentional but this is what you do to yourself when you play beanball.
  9. That wasn't even a terrible pitch. Vlad Jr is just gonna be a monster.
  10. Well that's the first time I've ever seen that

    Iguchi eyes ‘Sweet Home Chicago’

    That would be my hope. I thought Shingo and Tadahito would help us establish an NPB pipeline but it seems most of them only want to play on the west coast. Or their arms fall off soon after they get here. It also doesn't seem like hitters make the jump at all anymore (besides Ohtani).

    Sox Home Opener vs Ms

    Kikuchi has solid stuff. He's tough to hit.
