    Tom Seaver died

    Very lucky to have met him out here a few times in Napa. First time, he HECKLED me while I was throwing wiffle balls to my then 5 year old kid while wearing a white Sox hat at the local burger joint. Said I needed to throw strikes. Second time was a few years ago at our bakery while in line - his hands were filthy and he had pruning shears on his belt. We talked briefly about harvest. He was a legit farmer and loved the work. Third time was a couple years ago when he threw out the first pitch for our local little league. God rest his soul - he was a great talent and man!

    7/28 Sox/Indians Double Header thread

    Been a blast, in a way, can’t watch so catching up w this every 15 mins has been highly entertaining. I’d be way more frustrated if watching the actual game!

    White Sox Face Masks

    Ordered mine a couple weeks ago from mlb.com! thanks for the reminder- so frickin surreal though, when I'd rather be rockin a Robert jersey in the middle of his would-have-been ROY campaign

    Classic Games on MLB Network

    Anyone else been watching these the last few nights? For lack of anything else, I’ve really enjoyed them. Watched an entire Cubs/Phillies game from May 1979 where they lost 23-22. Hard to believe how “nostalgic” it felt - not only for the time itself, but just for a baseball game! Last night was the 1978 AL East tiebreaker — Yanks/Sawx. Saw an entire game pitched by Mark Fidrych. Love how much faster the game was then, some incredibly funky batting stances, seemingly more audible crowds. A good diversion for sure. Take care y’all.

    Sox in on MadBum

    Mixed emotions having seen him pitch and win here in CA for a bunch of years. Shields is a great comparison — both good and bad in terms of how Madbum could turn out. He’s worth the risk and slight overpay perhaps but only for a few years.

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    To me this is a very important point. I’m ever the optimist, but think he really will benefit from having a better lineup to battle with. Even in 2014 he was “the guy” with no additional consistent threats surrounding him.

    McCann Extension

    He's back on a tear and I'm becoming a fan. Sorry for a lazy question, but can someone please remind me of his status next year?

    And That's a Bill Walton/McCann Slam Deja Vu White Sox Winner !

    I’ve always had a tremendous respect for how ANY announcer can fill hours of time, daily, and for years on end, talking about the same stuff essentially. That said it gets dull even for the massive baseball fan. Guess I just loved the change of tenor. And I showed my kids (9&8) Airplane and Top Secret this week.

    Absolutely one of the most entertaining games I have ever seen.

    40 Man Trash

    I’ve officially gone to the dark side. Been supportive of this team for 30 years, consider myself a diehard, and will forever be one. But I’m finally pissed off and your list captures it perfectly. Zero depth means we got every ounce of remaining optimism hinging on a handful of players. Any other teams in mlb with 2 sub-200 avg players, a powerless cleanup hitter, and a pitcher with a 7 era playing in front of a great home crowd today? What a damn shame.

    Covey Optioned

    Best wishes to him as human being but I am officially joining the ranks of others now truly angry at mgmt for having run him out so many times.
