    5/8/21 And That's A White Sox Can of Whup Ass

    I'm posting just to keep the winners thread relevant. We have to not take wins for granted. I listened to first inning on radio and watched innings 5-9 on TV. Great win. The Royals announcers were impressed with Sox ability to hit with two strikes and to not rely on home runs. I think a lot of people are noticing the HR or K mentality in baseball today and like to point it out when guys are stroking the ball oppo field for singles once in a while. I was hoping Jose A would homer in the first in his second at bat to make it an 11-run inning. Nice win Sox.

    5/8/21 Chicago White Sox @ Kansas City 6:10 PM CDT

    I just KNEW after Sox scored eight in the first they wouldn't score again. Why is baseball so weird and maddening? I'll take the easy win, but baseball drives me crazy.

    There have been so many bad ballplayers in the big leagues through the years. It's such an unforgiving sport. Now with the shifts even harder to have that ball drop safely on the green grass instead of in somebody's mitt.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Sweet. I do like coffee a lot. My pet peeve is it must be hot, hot hot. I actually like cold beer, too, though I've given it up at various junctures and am currently in such a spell. Once COVID hit, I was upset at the status of the world and decided no harm in having a couple beers a week. So after the third attempt at buying some Miller Light and the third time the store didn't have any (WTH?) I took that as a sign and went back on no drinking hiatus.

    When are we gonna blame the hitting coach? Who is the hitting coach?

    That's a shutout in KC White Sox Winner

    Great pitching. Great win. We'll take a shutout anyday. Surely Tony has seen enough of Hamilton. The guy cannot hit and that's pretty obvious by now. Glad Collins is doing OK. That HR tonight was nice. Would be great to score some runs the final two games of the series and keep KC reeling. The Royals do stink and it'd be nice to win all 3 but unacceptable to not win at least two.

    Thanks back at you. I feel good about my body (knock on wood). So far, 29 hours since the shot and just a sore arm. Hope that continues.

    I'd like one more run, wrap up a 4-0 win and go ahead and try to get the offense rolling tomorrow. A 4-0 win would be dandy.

    One out cause of a nice pitch there by Bummer. I'll take it. Nice.

    I think you could bet the under every game this series and win a lot of money in LVegas.

    I like patience at the plate but Collins had a bad at bat there. Take a hack. Hamilton needs to be DFA'ed. I know he can play defense but geez isn't there somebody else in the Sox system to play backup OF?

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I will say this, before I got my second shot yesterday I was waiting and reading the handout on the Moderna vaccine. I laughed to myself because "common sense Greg" would never have accepted the shot after reading the material. It said the vaccine is not yet approved. It said it is unknown if there will be any long term side effects. I mean, after reading the handout there is ONLY one reason for one to be vaccinated and why I was vaccinated -- because frankly common sense says at this juncture it was unwise to inject the vaccine into my body. To get the vaccine you have to buy in to the fact COVID-19 is extremely serious, a once in a lifetime (hopefully?) threat to the entire country and entire world. By accepting the fact is it extremely serious (I accept the fact if I get Covid I could die gasping for air in a hospital bed; again many do not believe this is realistic) I willingly took shot No. 2 yesterday. I'm convinced those not getting vaccinated do not think this is a serious disease, do not believe Fauci and all the politicians and are quite worried the vaccine has not yet been approved with no knowledge of long term side effects. My deduction (partly because of what's happening in India; I do believe the crisis is horrendous) is that this is a vicious serious disease, one that I do not want to get and one I do not want to inadvertently spread to others. IN CONCLUSION ... after reading the handout I can understand why peeps would be hesitant. My decision was to ward off "common sense Greg" forget for a minute my disdain for politics and politicians and go ahead and get the vaccine. (So far sore arm, nothing else yet). Peace out.
