    The Makings of a Juggernaut?

    Glad we won tonight. Just wish we could’ve won Saturday so we could’ve taken the series and been a “juggernaut”, in what will forever be known as the “juggernaut game.”

    The Cleveland Guardians

    Huge whiff -- they had the chance to have the coolest name in MLB (Spiders) with limitless branding opportunities. This is at best boring, and has the added detriment of echoing the unveiling of the "Guardians" name for space force, which was pretty roundly mocked. Oh well, not my team and I guess I don't have to be jealous that a division rival gets a cool new name.

    More Moncada hot takez

    This is not aimed at any poster in particular. But the fact that basically one hot week from Moncada can bring this round of recriminations and reversals speaks volumes to the depth of analysis behind the Moncada "hate." There's no reason to change your fundamental opinion of Moncada based on three HRs or a short hot streak. He was awesome before and he's still awesome.

    7/19- Twins at Sox Gm 1, 4:10

    Yep—I think I fall in that category. No fan of the hire and still nervous about in-game managing in the playoffs. But that’s all outweighed by my excitement about the team’s performance, and I acknowledge that a) it’s entirely possible that TLR is responsible for some aspects of it that I’m not seeing and b) even if he’s not, at some point endlessly bitching about the manager of a really successful team kind of makes you look like a fanatic.

    I don’t think there’s any evidence that’s a real “problem.” I hope our division is weak for as long as possible throughout our window so we maximize our shots in the playoffs. We play plenty of games against out-of-division opponents anyway. This isn’t college basketball.

    And that's a well pitched f*** the 'Stros 4-0 White Sox Winner!

    Awesome statement series win against my new least favorite AL team. Great way to start the second “half.” Suck it, cheaters.

    This. And only this, really. Let’s start a new thread. Topic: Chicago is not a large American city. I’ll get us started: I know this is true because New York is bigger. And I was expecting Chicago to be bigger. And a bunch of people promised me it would be big, and when I look at it a few times a year it just doesn’t look that big to me. And “big” means 10 million people to me, and it’s not that big, so it’s small. It doesn’t *act* big enough, if you know what I mean. And to me, a big city is on an ocean, and it’s not, so not big. Go

    I can take care of that for you right now.

    White Sox select Colson Montgomery #22 overall

    Love it, including the fact that he was projected to potentially go in R1

    ELOY back Monday against KC

    Wow, Eloy comes back a month and a half early, hits his first two balls about 115 MPH (one over the fence), and the thread topic is "he's fat." Tough crowd

    Houston Astros

    Correct. Plus nullify affected divisional championships and pennants. No fake flags flying.

    Houston Astros

    I absolutely hate it. You’re right—it is disgusting, and their attempts to “own” it are shameful. I don’t love that we have an ex-Astro on our team (though at least he was a pitcher and not a hitter). But I’m really happy we don’t have AJ Hinch as a manager as a daily reminder of that travesty.

    Take some time off boys, enjoy the pre All Star Game White Sox Winner!

    Now I’m intrigued…You’re usually a pretty good contra-indicator
