    AAP: Jake Burger

    Any updates on Jake? At one time we were told June 1, then we heard he suffered a heel injury which set him back a week or so. It's June 20, and still nothing.

    +1 I'm starting to get a bit concerned here.

    Disco Demolition T-Shirt Night

    This is one of the best posts I have ever seen here. I was born in `76, so while I was technically alive at the time, I have zero memory of it. I know I'm opening myself to ridicule here, but I own a copy of the SNF Soundtrack. Disco is kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. That being said, I understand how radio can overplay a song... I've experienced it myself (for example, "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston... a song I really liked the first 20 or 30 times I heard it. But after about a week of hearing that damn song 3 or 4 times an hour on most stations I listened to, I wanted to pull my hair out every time it came on. Luckily, I had a few options on the dial where I could escape it completely.). Even KISS (another group of white guys) had a disco album. The Bee Gees had several good songs in the 60s that most people don't even know exist.

    White Sox ratings: up 40% on TV and streaming up over 100%

    I wonder what those numbers will look like next year with that Premium Cubs network?

    Great Falls Roster Released

    He hit .342 in 43 games in the DSL in 2017. He hit .094 in 22 games in the AZL in 2018. The Sox have seen him play... I haven't. Numbers don't tell the whole story.

    Great Falls Roster Released

    Those are my words exactly. Actually, I was expecting him to be sent back to the DSL this year... he's only 19.

    2019 MLB Draft and Signing Tracker

    When I was an 18-year-old college freshman, I'd guesstimate that AT LEAST 1/3 (likely more) of my classmates were well in their 20s or 30s. A lot of people serve in the military before going to college... I wish I would've Very few college baseball players get full scholarships. When Gio Gonzalez was drafted in 2004, I believe he had a clause in his contract where the Chicago White Sox would pay for his entire college education if he failed to make the Major Leagues. IMO, that is a HELL of a lot better than getting a PARTIAL scholarship to play baseball in college.

    Sox post round 1 change of strategy?

    Not a huge fan of all these high school arms... too risky for my liking. JMHO

    6/7 Games

    Not "often," but not unheard of either. Tonight is his 6th game at 1B this season.

    2019 DSL White Sox

    Part of me wonders if Wilber Sanchez is related to Yolmer. Sanchez is a fairly common surname, so it's a bit of a longshot. However, the Sox love signing siblings, so... Yolmer and Wilber are both from Venezuela.

    Rodon Comments On Future...

    Carlos has a great attitude. He's a fighter, not a quitter. I'm not worried about him, but I am VERY worried about his arm.

    With Berrios on the hill, I'm amazed that we have 4 runs tonight.

    Sox @ Twins 5/24 Gamethread

    They've been in rebuild mode for at least 5 years. They're for real.
  14. I'd say Ricky has those two beat by a WIDE margin. Fregosi was pretty bad too, but that was also during a rebuild.

    How many wins do you expect out of this road trip?

    Twins are 15-8 at home this year.
