    That's a big ol' CGSO winner!

    Giolito showing why patience is a virtue especially during a rebuild. In that regard, imho there are too many people on this board already writing off Madrigal as a bust. It is far too early to do that just like it was way too early writing off Giolito and Moncada like some were doing last year. Like I said in our situation, patience is a virtue and could pay off big time in the long run.

    Not so fast...I hear the Yomiyuri Giants are looking for a catcher

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

    A problem is that there is very little middle ground with this team. Some nights they look quite good, and are fun to watch especially when the young core guys are getting it done. But often they are grossly overmatched and I do not mean only by good teams like the Astros. That being said, a good game from Giolito and a split in Houston would be a very nice. It would be great to have some confidence going into Minnesota.

    And That's a White Sox Triple Play and Granny Winner !!

    Tilson seems like another nice guy to root for. As a lifelong Sox fan, I just love hearing a post game interview with a local guy who says being traded here was one of the best days of his life. Are they going to go with a platoon of Tilson and Cordell for the foreseeable future?

    McCann Extension

    I don't know about any hurry in giving him an extension since he is arbitration eligible next year so let's see what a full season looks like from him. But just from a defensive standpoint and how he works with the pitchers, he absolutely should be the #1 catcher on this team right now getting most of the starts behind the plate.

    Just checked the box score and I see Tilson is having his typical all or nothing game...2 strikeouts and a home run 😎

    Minnie Minoso for Hall of Fame

    Billy Pierce was absolutely my late father's favorite all time player so he holds a special place in my heart. Minnie Minoso was one of the greatest ambassadors for baseball and life that this city has ever seen. He once came to the downtown office where my wife was working and he gave her a signed autograph that she gave to her lucky fiancé as I was at the time. She said he was the nicest man.

    White Sox Sign Odrisamer Despaigne

    This guy had a no hitter going for the Padres against the Mets back in 2014. Daniel Murphy broke it up with 2 outs in the 8th. Someone in the front office must have watched that game and bided their time until he became available..."Hey this guy reminds me of Philip Humber"
  11. I have confidence that Alonso can get that avg up to .184 in those 38 more at bats
