    MLB cheating scandal

    I think of the Yankees as paper people
  2. I hope it goes on long enough to read some of those
  3. One of the things I will never forget...I was using public transportation at the time and was at the end of the Midway Orange line waiting for the train to leave when the Red Sox loaded the bases with nobody out. I was using my walkman radio and could not stand it just sitting there so I got off of the train and just paced back and forth in the terminal with my headphones on. Listening to El Duque get out of that inning was unbelievable...I am getting goosebumps now remembering how awesome that was. From the "wake me up when September ends" almost nightmare when the Indians almost caught us to 1-0 final game against the Astros...what a ride. If I am not mistaken for the last month of baseball season, the Sox only lost the one game to Angels in the postseason...they won all the rest of the games in that 30 day period.
  4. I don't disagree with your points but then I have to remind myself that a Ned Yost managed team won a World Series.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    I would not be surprised if Ozuna will need to do a Keuchel like contract from last season
  6. They should include a new stat in the books for any reliever who comes in the game with the bases loaded and no outs and gets out of the inning with no runs scored...they can call it a duque

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    I said what I'd like, to make this team as competitive as possible...I acknowledge it is not likely.

    MLB announces Astros penalties

    Nothing on the Nationals, yet. But since 2017 and 2018 are illegitimate...the crown reverts to the previous winners in 2016. So retroactively, Congratulations to the 3 time in a row World Series champion Chicago Cubs....now feel free to suck again for another 100 years Cubbies...your fans deserve it.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    I'd like them to add McHugh. I think he would be a good pickup for the pen and spot starts when needed.
  10. His last blown save was against the Sox 😁 Quite the wild pitch against the Cubbies...just a bit outside!!! I counted 7 home runs in that montage...just keep the ball down Steve

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    Once Madrigal comes up, it is going to be so great watching him, Robert, Yoan and Timmy run. Damn that is going to be fun.

    Year in Review (2019 Soxtalk)

    Don't get me wrong, I actually think the bunt is a waste of precious outs. I was just saying that bunting, more than anything else, really gets the game threaders pissed.

    If people were a little more accepting of the bunt...what a wonderful world this would be.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    They just know the Age of the White Sox is here and so they are graciously stepping aside.

    Year in Review (2019 Soxtalk)

    It feels like that Manny thread was in 2012. Was that really just earlier this year? Such a pleasant off season this has been.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Makes me wonder what deals they were offered that are now off the table because teams have moved on or spent the $$ elsewhere. Waiting is a game that can work...but it can also burn you.

    Lead-off Man

    I'm bored so I actually looked up fine in the dictionary and the top definition was "of high quality" while most of us think of fine as "good, satisfactory" another one of the definitions. So I would say that hopefully Mendick is a gradation of "fine" and we will be OK (which is kind of a synonym for fine so I think I better stop now)

    Year in Review (2019 Soxtalk)

    Any knowledge I have pales in comparison to many here...that is why I come here first if any news about the White Sox is breaking or hopefully about to break....or if I am just looking to vent or celebrate. I wasn't looking for a shout out...but I'll take it. And one more time before the year comes to a close 👀

    How good do YOU think we can be next season?

    If Robert was to do that...this offense would be crazy good!!
