    Stroman: I stand with Tim Anderson

    MLB made it the issue. And God, it sure does beat the 100th thread on Tatis.

    That's not really a thing. Example 1 of...so many.

    Out of context, it's a member of my uncle's Jewish fraternity hoarding cash. Using the Harper2Sox deduction method, you have no filter and should own up to it like Tim Anderson.

    Man, don't even make me bring up your avatar.

    What does your magical filter apply to?

    Broke so many rules.

    So, you don't actually care, right?
  8. Ok. Baseball's new unwritten rules say that shit is over. You can't say I'm wrong cause they're unwritten.

    Man, I'm really stuck in this. Tim Anderson doesn't have a filter. And you wanted Bryce Harper on the White Sox?

    This. This really is a joke. We had Chris Sale and Adam Eaton, who really couldn't filter themselves. Adam LaRoche retired because his little boy couldn't be on the field during drills. Angering the aforementioned players who would cut up jerseys they didn't like. Oh, let's not forget the unwritten rules which deem physical harm for showing emotion. If Tim Anderson can't filter himself, than half of baseball might as well be a broken Brita filter from 1966.

    Oh no. Whatever will we do?

    Is your name Randal?

    In that he wanted it over with?

    Here's the winner. Yeah, Anderson should have been ejected for using the n-word. Even in context, you can understand an umpire going "Hold up, racial slur. I gotta eject you, man." The suspension on time merely cements that what Anderson did was worse than what Schwarber did.
  15. Brad Keller's nickname henceforth is WAFN Radio, right?

    Read this Daily News article. But it can best be summarized as: - Baseball suspended a black man for calling a white man the n-word. This is after the white man's feelings got hurt because the black man showed emotion, thereby violating the sport's unwritten rules, so the white man had to punish the black man with physical harm. - This is after another white man had a tirade where he screamed f-bombs at an umpire and charged at him last week because he struck out. No suspension. - This is while the Cleveland Indians exist as a team. - This is while the Atlanta Braves exist and do the tomahawk chop with their fans. If Schwarber had been suspended, the Indians didn't exist, and the Braves fans just do the fucking wave, maybe it wouldn't matter. But much like Tim Anderson's usage of the word, context matters, because as far as we're all aware, there is no actual rule around using the word.
  17. This twitter user did a great side by side of Benetti and the atrocity that is the Royals TV broadcasters. This was probably Benetti's best moment yet as a Sox broadcaster and I thought it was worth its own thread. People may like to rag on him because he can be cheesy, but he's a professional and infinitely better than people like Steve Physioc and Rex "The Moon is a Planet" Hudler.

    I'm here for Blue Jays drama caused by Tim Anderson. Edit: Cause Grichuck will not be happy about this.
  19. Ken Rosenthal referred to this as L'Affaire Anderson in his column for The Athletic, referencing L'affaire Jake Powell. Copying from Wikipedia, because the academic articles are behind a paywall. Ever since Ian Kinsler's moronic comments during the World Baseball Classic, the unwritten rules have had a vague connotation around them as a race thing. Now thanks to this suspension, especially in light of Schwarber's tirade not warranting a suspension, I have a feeling they're going to be put firmly in the national spotlight as such, whether they are or not.* *I'm not passing judgement on them as such, this is just what I feel the coming debate will be.

    Yup. They don't own the Knights, Barons, Dash, Intimidators, or Voyagers.

    If the Sox owned Winston-Salem, sure.

    But is it more disappointing than being named Enoy, brother of Eloy?

    Juan Moncada, only because it would truly mess with people.

    Just imagine if he keeps it up once he hits Regions Field.
  25. That's only if he's still on the mound. If he's pulled, Abreu needs to go in the dugout with the bat and start swinging. SANCTITY OF THE GAME.
