    Most Memorable Sox Game You've Attended?

    White Sox vs Red Sox marathon game where we tied it with a run in the 9th...tied it again with 2 in the 11th...and won it in the 19th inning. The most memorable thing about that game is that I was there with a huge Red Sox fan who was supposed to meet his family at a block party afterwards. His daughter had asked him when he would be there and he actually told her he didn't know because the great thing about baseball is that it never ends in a tie and it will keep going until someone wins....and he stayed the whole game 😁
  2. Time to pump the breaks on Robert being on the opening day roster...."In Center Field and leading off....Gorkys Hernandez!!!"

    Last week without any baseball

    That is a lucid, well thought-out, intelligent argument....I would still be in favor of getting rid of Manfred

    Cubs 2020

    Best case scenario....the Sox battle for the AL Central crown while the Cubbies battle the Pirates to stay out of the cellar in the NL Central

    Last week without any baseball

    If you are looking for something to argue about, I doubt you will get any takers to argue the pro-Manfred side

    Puig still a possibility for Sox?

    Is Puig willing to dump Gatorade on himself?

    Mlb might be changing playoff format

    Any team picking their opponent just seems odd to me.

    I'm not saying I want him....but nobody wanted AJ either and that worked great in '05.

    Sox Have Deal for Norge Vera - 2020 Class

    I loved the forward thinking drafting of Thompson and Dalquist last year...and this seems to add to that strategy 👍

    So excited for the new season

    Under the new rules, do managers also have to pitch to 3 batters? That might do it.

    Let's talk about the spring training hat

    I like to blame Rob Manfred for all things stupid in MLB.

    Let's talk about the spring training hat

    My wife asked me "what do you think of the new White Sox spring training hat" and showed me a picture...."I don't!"....."you're apparently not alone" 😁

    Opening Day 26 Man Roster Discussion

    You know, you are right. Shame on me. Plus with the $$ he is going to kick back to me, I can host a huge patio party for all of Soxtalk.

    Opening Day 26 Man Roster Discussion

    Are you that Nigerian prince who keeps emailing me?
  16. I guess I am out of touch since I have no clue who she is. Of course that could be because I rarely have watched ESPN since over 30 years ago when I was in college and most of us would watch Sportscenter religiously.

    Soxfest news and notes

    Aside from the idea of signing him to that extension, I love the stories I have seen of his work with Abreu's Amigos. Jose seems to be just a geniunely great guy....our generation's Minnie Minoso. Just having him and others like Tim Anderson who give their time to the community makes it even easier to root hard for this squad.

    No need to overreact everyone....perhaps Dallas is just helping in the eventual recruitment of Mr. Springer next off season 😏

    I rarely disagree with you on your baseball knowledge...we are going to have to part ways on your beer opinion here but anyways!!

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    Not to get off the subject much, but I went looking for a similar beer to Honkers at Binny's and found Trooper by Robinsons Brewery (developed by a member of the band Iron Maiden who is an ale lover). It was quite good.
