    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    This is one of the dumbest posts I've seen on the whole internet.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    Was on a plane so I missed the break, but wow. This is fantastic news. I think Moncada is going to be streaky his entire career, but the tools are so loud and he’s willing enough to adjust that the average production will make this a steal.
  3. Yeah I'm with you there.
  4. Yeah it's hard for me to buy that one. If the Sox are maxed out at this point, there's no hope.
  5. *shrug* not by the end, no. It doesn't matter. The highest guaranteed money Bummer gets is $5m in the last year. This won't stop them from doing anything.
  6. I would say the Nate Jones deal was a complete disaster and I don't think it stopped them from doing anything. When they're this cheap, it's hard to see much downside.

    July 2nd Latest from Futuresox & our James

    Sounds like SoftBank is exercising whatever rights it has to either keep him on their team, or, at the very least, negotiate some sort of compensation for his release. It's difficult to tell how much leverage they have with respect to the former, since it seems that Colas is currently physically missing and has probably fled the country, but my guess is that this is more of a message to MLB teams saying, "hey, this guy is under contract with us, and we are asking that you respect that, as opposed to simply signing this guy as if we don't even exist."

    White Sox Spring Training Thread

    What an insane take based on that picture lol.

    KW says "no Puig"

    Because that’s how the front office has treated the acquisition.

    KW says "no Puig"

    I can’t see puig accepting/thriving with a part-time/platoon role, and I can’t see the White Sox going out of their way to get mazara just to block him with a so-so veteran with questionable clubhouse effects.

    Sox to sign Dyan Jorge?

    I know, they're so entitled, aren't they? Acting like they don't owe you free content and all. Or, even MORE free content, I guess, since they already give you a lot. But come on, right? UGH

    Field of Dreams Tickets

    It means that it's a MLB trademark and is completely MLB-operated. The All-Star game is a jewel event, the playoffs are jewel events, and last year's London Series was a jewel event. So even though it's a White Sox home game, you won't be able to buy tickets from the White Sox.

    Field of Dreams Tickets

    This is correct. It’s an MLB “jewel” event, but it is taking up a White Sox home game.

    ESPN Lineup Ranking

    Yeah. Wow. That is a bad list. White Sox in the middle of the pack I think is fine though. Don’t forget that we always see the upside of our guys because we’re fans, but this is a lineup with a ton variance. The potential is massive but the downside is very real. If you’re projecting, you gotta take the average. This lineup could very well turn into a top five lineup this year if everyone takes a step forward/no one regresses, but it could be pathetic if everyone stalls/everyone regresses. Overall, that potential should make it actually fun to watch for the first time since the rebuild started.

    I'm in a good position to know when these go on sale, and I've still heard nothing. It's very strange.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    The last two years have been subpar. It’s the OG though. There have been versions of it that are some of the best beers of all time. Keep trying it, they’ll nail it every few years. keep in mind it isn’t a coffee stout base either, so comparing it to the founders stouts isn’t really apples to apples.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    In terms of the Belgian styles I’d agree, but it’s hard to argue they don’t take chances with Bourbon County every year. The variants are getting stranger and stranger (and the reviews are getting worse, lol).

    MLB cheating scandal

    "Putting 2 and 2 together" is where the problem lies. You're saying you have a hunch. Nothing wrong with having a hunch, but it's a hunch.

    MLB cheating scandal

    Speculation presented as speculation is not met with derision. Speculation presented as fact is rightly met with derision.

    I actually don't see it as "moral" at all. Bullshit is just annoying.
