6/9| White Sox vs Jays | 7:10PM CT | TLR going for #2766

Recommended Posts

Young pitcher on the mound for the Jays, be nice to get to him early and get into their shitty pen again.

I'd like to be the first to request another appearance by Carl Edwards Jr....He only pitched 2/3 of an inning so should be available tonight....Thank you

How was your experience at the game?  I’m taking my middle guy on a couple of weeks.  Haven’t been in years.

Should we make it a tradition that the word “yes” or any affirmative be replaced with TLR’s current win total?

 

Do I think the Sox will win the World Series? 2766 you bet yer ass.

Yes, we should definitely find some way to embed trolling in literally every post because that's what this site is lacking

Great, another unwritten rule to consider.

Seems like there would be an unwritten rule to not worry about one's stats over the teams good...

It was really great to be back at the ballpark.  There was alot of energy in the crowd.  In a couple of weeks I would guess it will be more crowded since capacity should be increased by then.  Pretty much all of the concession stands were open.  The water fountains were turned off if you want to know that.  One thing to note is that the park is now cash-less...you need a card to pay for everything.  There are no venders walking the stands...I do not know if that will change. 

Food was terrific.  My son had the cuban sandwich and really liked it.  If you or your middle guy are ice cream fans, in the LF corner there is a stand that makes fresh cones out of waffles they make right there and fill it up with 3 scoops.  That was a great way to celebrate the 7th inning.

Any other questions, just let me know.

Have a terrific time!!!

I don't know what will happen when they get to 100% capacity, but right now, at 60%, it's fine. You cannot go between levels. You now can walk around the park. You now can enter at any gate. You cannot bring bags like backpacks. Everything is cashless, and there are no vendors. If you are there just to watch the game, it's actually fabulous. No constant up and down the aisle blocking your view. Some separation between parties, and a good team to watch.

They should bring back the vendors walking around.  The beer lines were horirbly long when I went last weekend, worse than I've seen at games with 30K + in years past.  I think the lack of vendors in the stands is causing that.  Plus, those guys are losing income which is a shame.  I hope sox have plans to bring them back.

Yep, honestly would would never know anything was really different. Fundamentals Deck was closed was about only change from usual for my kids.  Last night might have been the best weather for a game I’ve ever been to.

People who rely on stats such WAR, wRC+, etc. do it all the time. They are more worried about predictive stats as opposed to actual performance.

Agreed. The last couple I've been to the experience is great. Once the park is full I'll probably have to wait in lines though.

This goes for traditional stats as well. Saving one’s best pitcher for the final three outs for a 3 run save statistic (or not even playing them on the road without a lead), while pitching your worst bullpen pitching options in the highest leverage situations.

In a close game, the only stat a manager should prioritize is a team win, period.

My wife had texted me early in the game asking if it was still muggy and I responded that it was perfect.

Really great time all around.  Only dampened a bit by some drunken yutes after the game thinking that my Kannapolis Cannonballers Cap was first a Cubbie hat and then another group yelling their unfavorable opinion of the Blue Jays in my direction. My son said "I told you not to wear that hat."   Too late and now it's lucky. :D

People get on me for my Birmingham Barons hat, thinking it's a Tigers hat. Then again, the entire stadium now seems to chant "throw it back" every time the opposition hits a home run, so I am close to giving up on the in-person fan population. 😉

Barons hat (especially the Jordan era hat) is better than most MLB hats. Great taste.

I was reevaluating my stance earlier in the day about the over the top obnoxiousness of Red Sawx fans as I was hearing it from those yahoos. I'm thinking c'mon man I am wearing a White Sox Jersey.  Know your minor league affiliates you drunken baseball imbeciles :D

Thank you.  The worst ever was when I was wearing a Sox jersey and a late '80s "C" Sox hat and some idiots got in my face telling me to "pick a side" (thinking it was a Cubs hat).  There are some idiots out there.

Somebody did throw it back against the O's.  Every in the park was cheering him on, too.  We seem to have picked up a lot of Cubs bandwagoners... smh.

Those ones with the pig tail script look more like Indians or Reds caps...
