  1. Not surprised in the least to hear that Lopez and Grifol were chatting it up together and sitting side by side a lot. They obviously spent a time together with Royals. I covered Nick while he was at Naperville Central (2011-13) and spoke to him about Grifol shortly after the hiring, to try and get a little sense of what the team was getting. As the entire fan base now knows, it hasn’t been really good. I know the Royals are doing better this year under Quatraro, but it continues to baffle me that JR, Hahn and Getz are so enthralled with that organization.
  2. https://medium.com/@blake.baumgartner/do-more-of-what-makes-you-happy-200beb187dd9 Brought that up in this personal narrative about my time in Seattle last July for the 2023 All-Star festivities. Couldn’t agree more. The ASG has to be here in 2033. Hope MLB does right thing.
  3. I can 100 percent say without any hesitation that Nick is a tremendous person. Comes from a great family. He was great to deal with and cover from all the way back to Naperville Central (2011-13) and the times I've spoken with him since the Royals drafted him in 2016.
  4. Covered Nick for his three years at Naperville Central (2011-13) and I'm very happy for his family, who won't have to travel far to see him. Nick and his parents are class all the way. Kind of sucks because he's going from a 100-win team to a 100-loss team, but we'll see if he gets tendered a contract. Gold Glove caliber defense, obviously. Sox only had the other Nick who graduated from a Naperville high school in 2013 (Nick Solak; Naperville North) for 48 hours back in April.

  7. Hopefully in 10 years, come 2033, New Comiskey will play host to the 100th anniversary of the first All-Star Game (1933). But we all know MLB can be challenged at times to do the right thing.
  8. Understand why TLR is giving Abreu the day off, but it sucks Abreu wasn’t able to join Cecil Fielder in AL RBI history. The three three-run homers Perez had in two games against the Sox in KC is what really got Perez in contention for his eventual league RBI win. Well, hope Abreu and the boys get a ring at the end of the month or early November instead...
  9. Would anyone be willing and able to burn or copy Sox playoff wins on to DVDs? I’d like to not clog up my parents’ DVR. I have a DVD recorder with a hard drive that was able to get the WOW! signal through the wall up until May when the DVR crapped out and the cable guy cut the signal coming from the wall. I’d just need any potential Sox wins in the ALDS and ALCS because I do have an antenna that gets OTA channels (ABC, NBC, FOX) and I’d be able to record any World Series games. I’m not sure if there’s a way to download the games off MLB.com or whatever. I’m 38 and it’s the seventh time they’ve made postseason in my lifetime (1983, 1993, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2020 and 2021), so we all know how rare it is for franchise. I’ll pay to get it done - if anyone’s willing. Advice welcomed in DMs.
  10. Unfortunately that isn’t gonna happen. https://www.google.com/amp/s/espnpressroom.com/us/press-releases/2021/06/dynamic-diverse-and-accomplished-team-to-present-espns-nhl-coverage-to-fans/amp/
  11. I’m a Naperville Central alumnus and covered Lopez when he was with the Redhawks and he’s a great guy with great family, but you hit nail on head with that. Constant refrain from Benetti every time the Sox play the Royals. Does get a little old sometimes.
  12. They did, Lip. 2016 was the last year, I believe.
  13. QUOTE (fathom @ Oct 22, 2016 -> 10:37 PM) Only part of the rebuild they got lucky on is Arrieta and Hendricks. Try getting Rizzo for Cashner while Hoyer was Padres' GM, in addition to Russell.

    I'll take a PM, Rock, if you're willing.
