  1. Burger and Sheets are better off in AAA, they still really need the PAs and they aren't gonna get it in the majors this year.
  2. Yermin Mercedes leaving the stadium last night:
  3. My attempt at translating Yermin's IG post "I'm never going to give up. I lasted 10 years in the minors, I always understood that the process is great but the talent and what I showed speaks for itself. With the most humility I'm speaking from the heart. My dream is to be an established player in MLB. I always asked God to give me the opportunity he gave me 3 months ago. I owe my family, my organization, and my fans an apology (new mind?) if I have failed something. I have baseball in my blood and now Yermin Mercedes is missing. Thank God for guiding me on the right path and making the right decision. Everyone that is going through my situation, hold onto the hand of God, He can do it all, and forget the critics and bad comments that are always going to exist to run over? trample? one's personality. God bless y'all, I love everybody I'm back"

    Milwaukee

    I was in downtown Milwaukee 2 years ago for a work trip and there are so many good craft beer places I don't think you can go wrong. I went to Good City Brewing, which is across the street from where the Bucks play, but I think that's a little ways away from Miller Park

    Luis Robert cleared for Rehab Assignment

    LET'S FUCKING GOOOOO As much love as I have for how Billy Hamilton and Brian Goodwin have kept the ship from sinking, I'm also looking forward to not having to watch them all the time. It'll be a shame to see them go though.

    Post Pandemic Poll

    1. I was in great shape when the pandemic first started. Gyms closed and I had to go and rush to go get some home equipment. I remember thinking "I'll come back and get the rest on payday" (at that point, in 2 days) and all that shit was gone. Every barbell, every dumbbell, every plate, every bench was gone and it'd be months before I would see them again. Even today the heaviest thing I have in the house is 25 lbs. I kept doing home workouts for a while but eventually that "get up and get after it" I had that made me get up and work out was gone, and eventually chips and video games won, and I started calling my weight gain "the COVID 19." I've been fully vaccinated since March so I started exercising again consistently in April and I am *not quite* back where I was in 2020, but close. 2. Mental health is fine. The main thing I dealt with during the pandemic was boredom. It hasn't really changed much. 3. I was very fortunate in that I never lost my job or stopped working and neither did my wife so our finances are in great shape. A side effect of my non-existent social life was having a lot more money so I finished some home improvement projects and I got LASIK done with cash.

    And That's a White Sox Winner !!

    Since I'm always at work on night shifts I tend to wake up when the game is in like the 7th inning

    Who's going tomorrow? Gio, yes?
  10. Grandal's bat drop on HRs is just so fucking cool. If he was a perennial 40+ HR guy it would be iconic.

    2021-22 International Signing Period

    It really is nice though that the White Sox have built this reputation in Cuba where they seem to have first dibs on every Cuban phenom that defects.

    GT 5/27: ORIOLES @ SOX

    He's definitely got the stuff to be a 1 or a 2 but he's been walking too many guys. If he ever got a handle on that he's a front of the rotation guy.

    GT 5/27: ORIOLES @ SOX

    Something I learned in the STL series (or maybe I knew this and forgot) from seeing them do it: you can tag up on a foul ball. I guess catching it makes the ball live. I don't think I've ever seen a bases-loaded flyout at the foul pole before, though.

    5/24 Cardinals vs. White Sox

    I want Jose to play forever, but I'll rest easier knowing the transition from Andrew to Jose was as seamless as the transition from Paulie to Jose
