    Are you serious? With Covid lessening that'd be awful covering road games in the studio. I think they are going to the road games. Right?

    As much as I hate the reliance on the long ball, Sox seem to have a simple victory formula through the years: 3 homers a game coupled with the starter going 7 innings, we win a lotta games. if either thing is missing, Sox are just a normal team. Sox don't seem to be blasting many homers. How the Sox have built this amazing record this season so far, I dunno. Tony is doing something right in addition to playing lousy Central teams.

    Stoney is 73 ... much older than he looks. Pure speculation but he may want to naturally reduce his load by skipping a few road trips. 73 is not ancient in modern history but he's no young-un either. May want to enjoy some time off during the season.

    I thought he was OK. Not like the Stoney-Jason banter but OK. He fielded a lot of questions from Jason in the 3 games they worked. Still better than the last 2 years of Hawk when Hawk got crabby.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I do appreciate your response. It seems you sincerely want me to improve mentally which is nice of you. I did look up your link. It said: "More than 310 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through June 14, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 5,343 reports of death (0.0017%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine." That's a lot of deaths IMO. I really pray that everybody who took the vaccine will be fine down the road. Some people are concerned about the vaccines and won't be vaccinated. Like I said, I can understand. I decided to go with all the people who took the vaccine and was fully vaxxed with no problems at all (right now). I just can't help but be upset at our scientists and politicians that's why I freak out. For instance, covid is still really bad right now in some countries and I was reading that the new variant has hit here in America pretty hard. So in my very upset brain, I'm thinking, "if an election was coming up, would we still all be locked down? Would we still be wearing masks everywhere?" I'm kinda skeptical and could see the scientists and governors freaking out regarding the new variant of covid if say a presidential election was coming up. I appreciate your advise for wanting me to have a better life and be a better example for my friends who listen to my concerns (though I really don't voice them out loud). However, I do question why you seem to trust scientists and politicians a lot more than greg. Thank u for your tone in your posts to me. I just try to say what I'm feeling and hope for the best in terms of not getting banned.

    What's he ripping Tony about? Sox current team isn't as good as Houston. Sox record is dandy.

    I look at the record and can't believe it either. On the other hand, we must realize the Sox are by far the best team in the Central.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Don't be so mean about this issue. Why not give him the benefit of the doubt as being concerned? ... I am fully vaxxed but I totally see why some won't get the vaccines. Cmon, right now suddenly it's OK for everybody to question how this thing probably started in a lab when people like me who suspected that all along had to shut up about our concerns for so many months. Why are people being allowed to question it now and not before? We've very possibly been lied to a lot because of politics regarding a health issue and some people wanting to profit possibly by being deemed the true "experts" about this disease (you know, politicians and scientists who write books, etc.). Also we hear nothing in the news about people who have had medical problems after getting vaxxed. Why's that? Have there been absolutely no issues? I'm just saying I bless and applaud the skeptical people cause guess what? They might be right. I got vaxxed. I made the decision that I'd help the world by getting vaxxed and probably am helping myself as the "scientists" say now even if I get covid I won't die from it. I've decided to believe that. I can understand why some will not believe what they've been told. Why can't you understand that? You are apparently believing 100 percent what the scientists say. If anybody wants to discuss this with me via direct messaging that's great. I don't want to get banned on here for bringing up all the things I'm skeptical and upset about these days, including covid. And remember in forming an opinion on me realize I am fully vacced, an obedient/good American in that regard. Peace out.

    Sox @ Astros, 6/18 7:10 Central

    I think Eloy gets one more go at LF. If he gets hurt again, even he will realize he can't play outfield.

    Is Burger ready for the big leagues?

    Sox @ Astros, 6/18 7:10 Central

    When the Sox are going good can they hit sliders? No chance tonight vs that pitch.

    6/17 Sox @ Astros, 7:10 CT

    I enjoyed it too. He was so hot it was unreal. I had never seen a new Sox player get off to such a good start. Usually we have a guy start like Ventura did his first season.
  14. greg775

    6/17 Sox @ Astros, 7:10 CT

    I'd say 85 percent you are probably right. I'm still holding out hope he is ready. He's had some good games.

    6/17 Sox @ Astros, 7:10 CT

    I'd put him on the DL for a couple weeks. Have him not play at all. Maybe try to lose a few pounds while watching a lot of film. Just think when he returns, what if he hits like he did to START the season? Love Yermin but it's pretty obvious he's of no use right now. I wouldn't give up on him, I'd DL him for 2 weeks where he does nothing but work out. No BP or very little BP. Work out and watch tape. The guy is a .150 hitter the past month.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I don't trust anybody in government any more, certainly not Fauci. It takes a special person nowadays unfortunately to truly want to serve, never lie and do things for the good of humanity not to make one's bank account soar. That would be so great if Chicago's leaders and the country's leaders truly wanted to help the people they serve and not accumulate the $$$s. Beware of China, folks, they are not our pals.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    Jose owns first base for as long as he wants it, so I guess that leaves Eloy and Vaughn in LF. Maybe those two trade off between LF and DH. If both are healthy I'd guess Mercedes is a PH type who plays 1B once a week to rest Jose. I doubt they trade Vaughn to open up DH for Mercedes. I guess if Eloy works on his defense and proves he can play LF and stay healthy you maybe trade Vaughn and Madrigal in a blockbuster.

    6/16 Rays @ Sox, 1:10 CT

    Happy for Yasmani. He certainly can hit. I still like him at .150. He knows what he's doing. Good team win again. Happy for Collins and Vaughn, too. I think they have futures in the game.

    6/15 Rays @ Sox, 7:10 CT

    I guarantee u Yermin was still riding high as a productive big leaguer the day Tony called him out nationally. Yermin was a star back then, taking baseball by storm. Maybe he can get it back. But mentally I bet u he's not near as confident now as he was back when Tony reamed him. I betcha he's hitting .150-200 ish since the incident.

    6/15 Rays @ Sox, 7:10 CT

    Tony has to feel guilty. When he called out Yermin for the HR, Yermin was still hitting like Babe Ruth, right? The Yermin that blasted the home run off the 40 mph pitch is not the Yermin we see today.

    Nice win; is there anywhere I can get the Ozzie postgame in Kansas? I've never seen it. My mlb.com turns off after the final out.

    6/15 Rays @ Sox, 7:10 CT

    I'm OK with trotting him out there back to LF. I just am concerned about his injuries. I would think one more injury caused by his play in LF will be the end of him out there. Maybe I'm wrong. I guess he could improve. Jose for instance has become a pretty good defensive first baseman.
  23. greg775

    6/15 Rays @ Sox, 7:10 CT

    Ever notice since we got the new hitting coach how many pitches the Sox take? I'm OK with it as the team usually hits pretty well. But I've been a Sox fan a long time and can't remember hitters ever being this patient. I know it's modern baseball to either HR or K or BB but is our new hitting coach the reason that the Sox have hopped aboard this style of hitting?
  24. greg775

    6/15 Rays @ Sox, 7:10 CT

    Remember when he couldn't make an out if he tried? Confusing. Poor guy must really be confused.
  25. greg775

    6/15 Rays @ Sox, 7:10 CT

    It's pretty hard to hit .150. I guess he's OK with it since his walks are out of this world. I'd say it's possible maybe even likely he hits .210 before it's over though.
