    Grandall Vs. McCann

    The best part was when he blamed his teammates for his bad performances.
  2. Better to get a west coast trip full of night games out of the way early when they are coming from AZ rather than in the mid-season grind. It sucks, but will be over shortly.

    Petition to Move Eloy to DH Permanently

    I may be off base, but just this afternoon, I told my buddy that Eloy is our version of Schwarber. I am not sure Eloy will ever be more valuable than he is today.

    Petition to Move Eloy to DH Permanently

    Where is the option to trade him and all that he promises to be for as big of a haul as possible. The guy is clearly an idiot and doesn't learn his lesson out there. I know how promising his bat looks, but I'd trade him at the deadline (assuming he's not injured) for a dominant starter on a short term contract and some low level high upside lottery tickets.

    Since 1990 who is the Sox 2nd best player?

    He sucked as a manager, but I'm amazed that everyone is just ignoring Ventura from consideration here. My vote goes to Buerhle, but Ventura really was the clear #2 on a those competitive teams of the early to mid-90s. He definitely merits recognition in this conversation as much, if not moreso than Konerko.

    RIP Dick Allen

    After losing loved one, you still have moments in the ensuing years where some news breaks and you have that urge to pick up the phone and call them. Then reality rears its head and snuffs out your excitement. Those moments fade over time but when I saw the news about Dick Allen today, I briefly thought to call my late father who was a fan. RIP Dick Allen.

    Sox hire Ethan Katz per WSD

    Jocketty’s also not surprised to see La Russa managing at age 76, since he’s been hearing about his desire to jump back in for the last few years. “He’s really had the energy and ambition to get back to managing because he sees things he doesn’t like in the way the game is played some times, and he’d like to have some opportunity to show how he did it, obviously with some adjustments,” Jocketty said. “He was definitely fired up for this and he’s got the energy and the drive to take this thing as far as he can take it.” Oh FFS!

    Eloy might not be ready for first playoff series

    George Glass?

    Sox vs Twins 9/17 1:10

    The one thing I have learned about COVID over the past 6 months is we still have a ton to learn. This recent article in The Atlantic should make it clear that this thing has a broad spectrum of how it impacts each patient. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/08/long-haulers-covid-19-recognition-support-groups-symptoms/615382/

    White Sox @ Pirates - 9/8/20 - 6:05 CT

    Wasted a potential defensive replacement for minimal gain. If anything, I'd have him run for Eloy. Head scratch for sure.

    I don't think we'll see a game until Saturday

    Huh??? The NBA has been playing games in the dome for some time now. I have not hear anything about the protesting of games in the past 24 hour or so being related in any way to COVID.

    Sox vs Pittsburgh 8/26 game thread 1:10 first pitch

    1994 and 2006 were potent lineups full of established professional hitters, but as far as young charismatic big boppers that all emerged at the same time, only the 2000 division team comes to mind.

    What should the Sox do with James McCann?

    Sorry to be lazy and not read the whole thread, but is there any thought to the value of Grandal's contract in the offseason trade market? He is perceived as an elite player and the sample size with the Sox is still very small, but if you agree Collins is a serviceable backup and McCann wants to stay if he gets 80% of the starts, couldn't Grandal possibly net you even more depth in bigger areas of need? I know teams don't like the reputation of signing contracts and then dumping players, but this might be an instance where it makes some sense. Thoughts?
