    Most Memorable Sox Game You've Attended?

    Game 1 and game 2 of World Series Carlos Lee Walk off slam against the Cubs ALDS game 1 when they routed the Red Sox July 2nd 2003 against the Twins. Konerko was having a terrible year but hit a homer off Guardado in the 11th to tie and Frank hit a walk off in the 12th off Guardado. Ball landed like a row in front of me and my friend in the left field bleacher area. I remember on sportscenter that night you could see us going nuts with everyone in the stands. That was when the Twins hatred was in full effect.

    MLB cheating scandal

    I would've liked to have seen them get hit with a stricter luxury tax threshold as well. It's 208 million for 2020. For the Astros, should have it lowered to like 125 million or something and they have to pay the taxes this year and leave something in place for a few years instead of a 5 million fine.

    Yeah, not offended by it either. Just always been annoyed my whole life how every one thinks I just randomly jumped on the Favre bandwagon.

    NFL Thread 2019-2020

    I am from Chicago, live in Chicago and am a lifelong Packers fan. My grandparents were big Chicago Cardinals fans. They hated the Bears/Cubs and were all about the Sox and Cardinals. When the Cardinals left for St. Louis in 1960, my grandparents couldn't stomach rooting for them in another city but also still hated the Bears and couldn't root for them. My grandfather swore off pro-football but my grandma ended up a Packers fan out of her hate for the Bears. There was a hardcore subset of Cardinals fans that eventually just picked another team to follow. So maybe the reasons are petty or stupid why she chose that team but growing up, I was close with my grandma and start watching games with her as a kid in the Don Majkowski days. Been my team ever since. If I am not a true Chicagoan because of that, then so be it.

    Sox @ Boston, 6:10

    I just walk away from the tv when Alonso comes to the plate. I don’t need to see the AB or the frustration it provides.

    GT Chicago vs Chicago, 6/19/19, 7:05 CT

    Yeah maybe Ricky should get tossed cause Blaser sucks, but I haven’t seen anyone move closer to the plate to take away that outside strike either. If you know they are pounding that part of the zone all night and getting the call, you can’t just go up there doing the same thing and expect different results

    I’d be cool with a hit by pitch

    The cub fans should be giving Blaser an ovation cause Lester sure didn’t look all that great tonight

    Man, one mediocre outing and there are people just ready to rail on Lucas. Get a life. Even the best pitchers in baseball get rocked once in awhile. It happens. Some people on this board act like life is over and they are ready to jump off a ledge the instant a guy makes one bad play or has one bad outing.

    6/4 Games

    Yeah, I know the team isn't going to confirm it but I personally have not seen any reliable source say anything to hint it's soon. I heard maybe after the all-star break but nothing concrete. Are we past the super 2 deadline at this point?

    6/4 Games

    Is this confirmed or we all just speculating still?

    Sox vs Indians 5/14 1:10PM CT

    Played in every game this year so he gets today and tomorrow to rest and is 0-12 career against Carrasco.

    OVERVIEW FOR 2020

    You're probably right, but I can still be hopelessly optimistic for now.

    OVERVIEW FOR 2020

    Back up the brinks truck for Gerrit Cole. I would like to see catcher, 2B and RF upgraded but this team is putting up enough offense to compete but they need a TOR arm badly. Yes, we have a few young guys who can be that guy down the road, but would be nice to have that legit ace heading the rotation to take some of the pressure off the young guys.

    Sox @ Jays: 6:07pm CT

    Buchholz is scratched for tonight. Daniel Hudson is going as their "opener"
  19. White fragility...it's a thing

    Sox and Tribe Game #2

    However they line them up, just keep the order stacked at the top. 1-5 looks like it can be solid most of the year....the rest of the lineup, bleh

    Weekday tailgating

    Seems like they always have these built in off days so they can adjust for weather related issues but they never actually adjust anything. Looking at the forecast, I would rather they just announce the home opener is moved to Friday so I can adjust my PTO to that day. Same crap happened a couple years ago where we showed up, they let everyone buy concessions for an hour then postponed it.

    Weekday tailgating

    Yeah, maybe not as much as a weekend game but I still see people who get out there early enough to tailgate. I know the home opener there is always a ton of people tailgating. Over the last few years, that is the highlight of the home opener in my opinion. If it isn't the crappy baseball being played, the crappy weather will be there to ruin it.

    Eloy officially got paid

    I have never been but it does look like a cool stadium. The backdrop is nice.

    Eloy officially got paid

    I am fine never watching Delmonico play baseball ever again.

    Eloy officially got paid

    Can he be called up if he was optioned to minor league camp? Not sure if this was asked already but I thought if you were optioned in spring training, you can't be recalled for like 10 days once the season starts.
