AND THAT'S A WHITE SOX WINNER

Low point was definitely the STL double header. Went from valley to peak very quickly.

That DH felt like a year ago, and like we were headed for a, "is this rebuild working as planned" season.

If the Cubs and Yanks lose tonight, we will have the 5th best record in baseball halfway through a season. If Oak and Minnesota both lose, we will be 1.5 games behind the 2nd best record in baseball halfway through a season.

Wouldn’t be surprised if they bail on playing Friday and opt for two 7- inning games Saturday.

I am expecting this as well. Or even the entire weekend being interrupted. It'll be interesting to see how the situation evolves in MLB vs NBA over the next 24 hours

I was referring to weather Friday night. Not supposed to be very good.

Oh, totally forgot about the forecast. That certainly is looking ominous

Passan already said that Reds/Brewers tonight is postponed and the M's are already discussing action, since they lead baseball in black players

Jose Abreu is playing out of his mind right now. If he was playing a full season this is probably about a 45 home run pace (mathematically, 12 home runs over 31 games is 62 home runs but I know baseball doesn't actually work like that). So fun to see him actually hitting in a lineup where not only does he not have to carry most of the weight, he's maybe the 3rd or 4th best hitter.

Definitely a big change in board sentiment is now people gleeful that another team was duped into thinking Quintana was good when during the 2016/17 offseason and season it was mostly rage posting at the Astros to pound sand if they didn’t think Quintana was the ace he was!

Quintana was a great pitcher for us, It sucks to me that he is now a punch line. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a career renassaince and finds his effectiveness once again.

I agree. He was outstanding for the White Sox. I would love for that renaissance to happen for him. If he could escape the Cubs, things could  be great for him. Of course, you could say that about any player.

I wouldn't give up assets for him, but I would be willing to bring him back in a Gio Gonzalez role for sure.

I really dislike 7 inning games when a team like the Sox has a good bullpen and a lineup that can put up crooked numbers late in games. Just think our odds of overcoming late inning deficits are better than most other teams.

Just a few weeks ago reading tweet about the Sox 2- 8 home record being worst in club history after 10 games.

Are we over .500 now at home ?

 I'm sure his power surge is -  his chin rubber band

I thought he got even better with the Cubs until it fell apart.  With us, he would get two strikes and start pecking away at the corners and run up his pitch count for lack of a putaway pitch.  With the Cubs that wicked slider became a putaway pitch.  Gotta like what we got for him!
