    MLB COVID-19 outbreaks: None of as Sept 18

    That's completely unacceptable. I live in very rural Wisconsin. Went to a free drive thru test site and had my results in less than 48 hours. That kind of turnaround for a free test could help slow the spread. Not having to wait 16 days.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Thanks. Luckily, to my knowledge anyways, nobody that I had contact with got infected. A couple people I had been around got tested but came back negative. That was my biggest fear was that I infected someone else. Guess I had an ill advised sense of comfort living in my small town of 1000 people and maybe wasn't as careful as I should have been.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Today is my first day back at work after being off for 2.5 weeks after testing positive. I had every symptom on the list other than the lost of taste and smell. Never got overly sick but lost 12 pounds in 5 days. Had zero appetite and some pretty bad diarrhea. I got lucky as my case seemed to be mild, but even with my mild case I lose my breath doing anything physical at all. Even walking from the couch to the bathroom I have to take a couple minutes to catch my breath.

    Most Memorable Sox Game You've Attended?

    I've only gone to roughly 20 or so games in my life but my most memorable was The Big Hurt's return with Oakland. 2 HR game that ended with a Pablo Ozuna walk off bunt single to score AJ with 2 outs. That game was the turning point in Frank's season too. .178/.300/.378 slash before it, a .302/.408/.603 slash after. The rest of that season Frank looked like mid '90s Frank all over again at age 38.
  5. His WHIP? Really? That is not an advanced stat.

    Hawk Harrelson wins the Ford C. Frick Award

    Just for clarification, Frick Award winners are not actually inducted into the hall and are not technically considered HOFers. It is just an award given out by the HOF.

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    That is a pretty studly middle of the order there. If Robert and Madrigal end up being what we hope we are definitely going to score some runs.

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    See ya.

    Tim Anderson Batting Average

    You can also still win a batting title if you don't reach the qualifying PA's. Your average, for leaderboard purposes, is just calculated as if you had enough hitless at bats to reach the qualifying mark. Tony Gwynn did so in '96.

    Yonder DFA'd

    That's really a worry of yours? Like you honestly believe there's a possibility of that happening?

    ChiSox @ BoSox, 6/26, 12:05 CT

    Who would have guessed coming into the season that McCann would become our 4 hitter with a .900+ OPS and probably an All Star? Anybody raising their hand is a freaking liar.

    Have the White Sox ever started worse pitchers?

    In 2012 Peavy had a 3.37 ERA, 3.73 FIP, 3.99 xFIP across 219 IP. Accumulated 5.0 rWAR, 4.4 fWAR and made the All Star team. I don't think he really fits here.

    Castillo to DL; Fry reinstated; Collins Called Up

    This is such a minor risk that it should never preclude you from doing it if that is your best lineup. Worst case your pitcher may have to bat a time or two (so not really any worse than half our lineup).

    Sox @ Jays: 6:07pm CT

    Exactly. Never understood the hate for that guy. He made just 30 starts with the Sox and put up 4.8 fWAR, what the hell more do people want from the guy?

    Luis Robert, others Promoted

    He has a .304/.385/.478 line over the last 7 games. No way you demote him now that he's started hitting.
  16. I'll never understand why people care so much about this. If McCann gets hurt and Castillo has to come in the pitcher or pinch hitter has to bat the rest of the game. Not the end of the world.

    Sox and Tribe Game #2

    Guess I'm not understanding all the b****ing. Guys need to pitch and if they didn't pitch today it would be a minimum of 4 days off for Herrera and 5 days off for Jones, and that's only if there get in the game Friday.

    Sox and Tribe Game #2

    Why do we need Covey? Just let Rodon throw 200 pitches.

    Zack Collins at First Base

    Pre-White Sox Dunn was just "a useful player"? No, pre-White Sox Dunn was on pace for 600+ homers and a spot in the HOF.

    3/28 GT - Sox @ Royals (3:15pm CST)

    This offense could be fun to watch at times. That 2-7 could end up hitting 150-160 homeruns this year.

    Personal opinions on Sox rebuild pieces.

    Thome. And Dick Allen's '72 season is probably the 2nd greatest season a White Sox player has ever had including Frank Thomas.

    Personal opinions on Sox rebuild pieces.

    Dye didn't even lead his team in wRC+ or OPS+ that year.
  23. I just looked up Nick Markakis's stat for the 1st time in forever and to my surprise he's a guy that has a fairly respectable shot at 3000 hits. Just turned 35 and is at 2237. If he can remain an everyday player another 3 or 4 years more he might come close.

    Farmer and DJ back on radio for 2019

    I'm not a big fan either. He's okay but he's not nearly as funny as he thinks he is.

    Least Favorite Sox 3rd baseman over last decade

    But that's not true either. He played 81 games with the Sox that year. The first 40 he had a .182/.301/.343 slash with 5 HR and 19 RBI. The last 41 he had a .231/.355/.517 with 11 HR and and 25 RBI
