    Coming to Chicago-advice on travel from Waukegan

    There is a giordanos in gurnee which is close by. They have the stuffed pizza which is probably what you are thinking about. There aren't any malnatis really close by. One is in 3rd lake/gurnee but I think it is takeout only. Where are you from?

    Looks like the metra from north chicago is an hour and 23 minutes. Then 3/4 mile walk to red line. Then el to park. No idea how long that would be. Maybe an extra half hour?

    Yeah rush hour traffic. Right now I'm trying to time the train commute. Just North Chicago to ogilve is likely an hour.

    Coming to Chicago-advice on travel from Waukegan

    If I were you I would drive and go to the game on saturday. I lived in north chicago (right by base) for 10 years and taking a metra to ogilve and then the red line is going to be a REALLY long train commute. Driving on a saturday will take you about an hour to the park and probably an hour and a half on the way back (added half hour for getting out of parking lot) Driving down on a friday night will be a disaster but probably the train/walk/el is even a longer commute. Better yet if you can go on a sunday where tickets and parking are half price. Also quonset is good but not my favorite. A hidden gem in the area is big eds bbq in waukegan.

    SoxFest First Time---What to Expect?

    Ya'll are good people. Thank you for taking the time to provide some helpful guidance.
  6. As the title states this will be my first time going (Sunday only) and I'm pretty excited. Realistically, what can I expect? I see certain times for photos and autographs with a limited number next to it. Should I just pick a line no matter what time and stick with that? Or will I likely be able to get multiple photo/auto ops? Do I have to pay extra for these? Do I need to bring items to sign or will they just be signing pictures they provide? Also, as a fat man will there be food? Thanks for your help!

    Cumulus Media trying to drop White Sox/Bulls from WLS

    Good. I stopped listening to white sox radio broadcasts because the reception was terrible on WLS. Maybe they would have more listeners if you could actually hear the game.

    New Ballpark Name

    QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Sep 8, 2016 -> 08:16 AM) Got this text from a close friend this morning. Take it with some grain of salt, although I completely trust him on this type of stuff. Thought it was worth sharing nonetheless. My wife works for Wintrust corporate. Ed Wehmer is a good guy and down to earth. Brought the company up from a single bank in Lake Forest to one of the biggest financial players in Chicago. Would have loved this though not sure how that would have worked with them being a legacy sponsor with the cubs.

    It's time for a fire sale.

    QUOTE (kitekrazy @ Jun 19, 2015 -> 01:01 PM) Baseball is full of hall of famers who wasted away on losing teams. Where did this logic ever come from? Just look at the HOF guys on the northside. You don't trade a guy unless you have the sure thing coming up. To rebuild you should have pillars in place. My main point being is you could get a lot of good young talent in return for those guys. I mean I never thought I'd say it but I think it's the smart thing to do. Also, I'd rather a team do what it takes to get into to contention to win championships not develop hall of famers on a losing club.

    Why not trade Sale and Abreu? Sox could get a lot in return for those two guys. At this point I honestly believe Sale is wasting away in our organization. I'm ready for a rebuild. This team has been s*** for far too long.
