    Trade Deadline Thread

    Why is the Trevor Story thread locked after the Nightengale tweet saying we're interested?

    One of the best catches of all time

    Had one of these situations at the Cape Cod League game this past weekend. Sitting out by the opposing bullpen, bunch of 20 year olds that know they aren't pitching that day and just having a fun time out of it. Every play for the home team, these guys are jawing them, making jokes like "showboat didn't need to dive", anything like that - any "plus" play the home team made was getting derided by these guys having a fun time. Then there's a hot liner at the RFer into the setting sun, RFer made an awesome play diving in on the ball hit straight at him. Opposing bullpen all stood up and clapped for him. Game respects game.
  3. That's about how hard he runs to first base anyway, looks like he's back to normal 😆

    On Twitter? Very much so.

    He's, uh, rather infamous on Twitter. He's definitely a known quantity.

    Berrios being discussed by Dodgers/Padres

    Everyone knows the Dodgers want to upgrade pitching to replace Bauer, given that he might never play for them again. My guess is that the Dodgers are serious about this and that the Padres know it and want to drive LA's prospect price up.

    What the Brewers Series is Telling Us

    What this series has told me is that the trade for Lynn was a damn fine decision.

    Yeah but how many double plays has he grounded into, hmmm? 🙃

    The Cleveland Guardians

    Why did sports collectively agree that animals (particularly birds and big cats) are the go-to team name and mascot? Because they're boring and non-offensive. Kudos to Cleveland for trying something with their identity. You're always going to get those people that are upset when something goes against the grain, even if it plays to the local identity and the area supporting the team likes it. Hell, look at the mixed reviews and backlash Kannapolis got on their rebrand to the Cannonballers. Local connection but still has broad appeal and a fun mascot. It's always going to happen that way, and then we'll all get used to it.

    The Cleveland Guardians

    The more I read about the Cleveland identity thing with the wings on the G logo and everything tying into the statutes that are a staple in the city, the more I can come around on it. I think it's dumb and sounds like a soccer team. But Cleveland people seem to really like it and have that civic pride as it fits with their identity, and that's all that really matters.

    Luis Robert cleared for Rehab Assignment

    Another flyout to deep center in the 3rd. Little thing, but I appreciate that he's wearing his Sox batting helmet instead of the W-S helmet.
  12. This whole saga trying to figure out what Yermin is saying reminds me of that satirical ESPN bit back in the day where Barry Sanders says he called his coach and said "I'm tired", but the coach thought he said "I'm retired".

    White Sox Winner !!

    Feel like this is where we bump that juggernaut thread again. We're top-5 in odds win the World Series and have been doing it with a roster fall of replacement-level guys, call-ups, and underperforming studs. And these guys have been contributing to the point where we need to debate what to do with the roster once we get the starters back. Now Tim is hitting HRs, Moncada is hitting HRs, Abreu is driving in runs, and we've got three dynamos coming back from injury soon. We're sending a message to the rest of the league - get fucking ready.
