    Buehrle's perfect game. It could be ruined with one at bat, unlike the WS.

    COVID Thread Part Deux

    Butcher box is a legit company, but not in my budget. Some time over the pandemic I realized my depression was causing weight gain so I did take it seriously and lost 30 pounds. I was lucky that I had income to address that during the pandemic (and cook lots of healthy meals), but when I was broke, cheap, unhealthy food was a big contributor.

    COVID Thread Part Deux

    Obesity got brought up. Are we questioning anything that isn't an all natural food? Are the Sox serving meat that is only free-range cattle and chicken? Is the beer vegan beer? I demand answers.

    COVID Thread Part Deux

    I love that measles, mumps, whooping cough, chickenpox, polio and smallpox would have completely whooped our asses with this line of thinking. We'd have kids in iron lungs and people saying "it's better than doing what the government tells me."

    2021 MLB Catch-all Thread

    Cal Quantrill, Ty France, Franmil Reyes are worth 8.8 Preller's reputation is pretty much built on fleecing the Tatis trade and building a good farm, but man, his trade record is looking more and more like he just loves buying shiny toys. If we were PadresTalk, we'd be ripping our hair out over trading Turner, Fried, and Grandal for Myers, Kemp, and Justin Upton.

    Vaccines haven't been controversial (in the mainstream, at least) until recent years, and that's because of people trying to make money. Before COVID, we got a measles outbreak in New York City.

    Trump was going to get every single thing humanly possible to save him. He was the damn president. Here's everything he got: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-54418464 You know what he didn't get from the doctors at Walter Reed? Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. The former host of Fear Factor took horse medication, yes. He also took monoclonal antibodies, which are far, far more important.

    Yeah, hydroxychloroquine made sense until they got data and then the data was like "doesn't do anything to help COVID, but people with lupus can't get this drug now."

    Also, scientists and some (definitely not all) politicians have been sounding alarms on rising obesity for years now. I love when I see a CDC recall on ice cream, especially Blue Bell, it's like: "I'LL EAT ALL THE DAMN BLUE BELL I WANT." CDC recall on lettuce: "TOLD YOU LETTUCE WAS BAD."

    Also Joe Rogan's YouTube channel that posts the snippets. "Masks are for bitches." "It's what men do. We make fun of...things." Joe Rogan is controversial on purpose cause it makes Joe Rogan money.

    Man, I appreciate your depth of knowledge to understand all the roster jockeying Hahn has made this year.

    I genuinely wonder how different the Sox record this year is if the runner on second in extra innings rule didn't exist.

    I like the confidence. After all, the Sox do have a good playoff history at Minute Maid.
