    Sox and Stros 7:10 Central

    Yeah I remember actually betting on the Astros when they faced Chris Volstad and he ended up holding them to one run and the bullpen shut them down the rest of the way.

    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    Obviously this sucks and the Bulls need all the luck they can get but of the four teams currently in the Conference Finals there’s exactly one top 5 pick playing (Durant). Brooks Lopez is the only lottery pick starter in the ECF and he was at 10. I feel like people overrate draft position.

    Game of Thrones

    Someone on the ASOIAF subreddit said the original plan was to have Rhaegal killed during the ringing of the bells and have Dany snap after that but they decided Episode 4 needed more shock value. That would have been far better than what happened.

    And that's a White Sox Giolito Gem Winner!

    I mean go to any team’s forum and they all act the same, regardless of recent success. It’s definitely the nature of the internet. Go to the Cubs subreddit after they have a 2 game losing streak, half the sub is ready to jump off the ledge. Despite winning the title last year a bunch of the Red Sox subreddit want to hang themselves after the slow start. Happiness seems fleeting in general in sports fandom.

    It's not like the ballistas can shoot straight up, just dive bomb them, attack at night and burn them all, how are they going to stop that?
  7. It also can't be a coincidence that so many players have their career worst years here and then go on to other teams and still be useful players.
  8. This is why I think player development is a way bigger issue than an eye for talent (not saying that we couldn’t use big improvement there too). In that 2019 Fangraphs update about our prospects Kiley wrote that many of them had taken a step back and/or the future outlook isn’t as good as once hoped but he noted that he didn’t think it was because the White Sox picked the wrong guys because Kiley’s team were all in on them too.
  9. Oof. Surprised to see the Cubs so low though I guess all their hits have been picks in the top ten and those are probably the hardest to raise the FV.

    Game of Thrones

    If Tyrion and Jaime die I don't think it will be in the White Walker battle, otherwise the whole assigning Bronn to the task of killing them would be utterly pointless.

    The Anderson Saga (continued from game thread)

    Flipping/throwing your bat and yelling towards your teammates is not taunting the other team, nothing Anderson did was directed towards anyone on the Royals.

    Future White Sox Lineup #GetExcited

    https://blogs.fangraphs.com/war-update-catcher-framing/ Here was the article about it, also includes a table of who got the biggest boosts and decreases from the change. Buster Posey now has a 10 fWAR season.

    Fangraphs made updates this offseason to include framing in WAR FWIW.

    The Anderson Saga (continued from game thread)

    I'd want the kids to do it even more than the MLB players (and I want them to do it too). Let the kids have fun. I really don't see the problem.
