    Nick Madrigal

    Nick is British slang for jail/prison. Madrigal is a specific type of song. Jailhouse Song.

    White Sox @ Royals - 9/6/20 - 1:05 CT

    An easy half- measure would be to play an echoey Hawk recording over the stadium P.A. system when there’s a home run, like the Phillies do with a recording of Harry Kalas’s “Outta Here!”

    Yolmer back!

    As long as he's not hitting anywhere above 8th in the batting order. In 2018 he hit 2nd 96 times, and led off 15 times. Fortunately in 2019, he most commonly batted 8th.

    Yolmer back!

    My only concerns are more general in nature, and not necessarily specific to Yolmer: A tendency to return to what's familiar over trying something new/different; Carrying too many of these types of players on a roster; The person filling out the lineup card who reflexively keeps playing them, or worse, batting them high in the lineup

    Cool/Not Cool?

    Likeliest answer: there was a finite window of time to QA each photo, process the orders, have a print shop produce them, and install said cutouts during a timeframe that didn’t have them around the players (to conform with the league’s CoVID protocols).

    I'm presupposing that Benetti is also referencing "The Knights of Ni"/Monty Python and the Holy Grail when he says "another shrubbery".

    Sox planning on having fans present in small amounts

    Would those fans be lined up 6 feet apart at the gates for entry, security and temperature checks? Assuming an even distribution of fans:gates, (6,000 fans / 5 gates x 6 ft) each entry line is 1.3 miles long.

    Sox planning on having fans present in small amounts

    Let’s pretend that it’s a maximum of “only” 5,000 fans. Let’s further stipulate that they use 5 gates for entry, and assign 1,000 fans to a specific gate to even it out. 1,000 fans lining up for security x 6 ft. of space between them is a line over a mile long at each of the five gates.

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    Here's how I look at it - it's a completely insane year, so go for broke! If your team wins the World Series, it's "look at all the hardship these guys battled through this year; this win is even more special". For the other 29 teams, it's "Hey, this year was absolutely nuts, ehhh, whaddaya gonna do, you know? *shrug*"
  12. My favorite random Alexei moment was from mid-2015 when he and Adam Eaton let a pop fly fall between them, then blamed each other.

    MLB cheating scandal

    Disclaimer: completely insane, impractical idea The players from the 29 other teams could force additional punishment by announcing their intent to refuse to travel to Houston during the 2020 season. It's not a strike - you're allowed to forfeit games by not showing up. The Astros would hemorrhage money - 81 forfeited home game "victories" with zero attendance, angry season ticket holders/luxury suite buyers demanding refunds, an apoplectic RSN with nothing to televise and total loss of ad revenue. How many weeks would it take?
