    Announcing what they are reviewing would be good but I think everyone is OK with hand signals for the result.

    That feels like a great trade for the White Sox. Both players are a little risky but I feel like I'd be willing to bet more on the value you can get out of Pollock than Kimbrel.

    it fills a massive hole in the Sox lineup and fixes a mistake by the trade

    Getting a major leaguer in return for Kimbrel is great as obviously we are in win now mode

    The platoon bats for the Dodgers have been really strong in spring training. Like trading for Kimbrel and trusting our insane depth to fill in at RF. Also really happy Pollock went to a contender

    The Billions theme song, like the show itself, fucking sucks. Succession (I don’t know which team they’d be in any analogy) has a vastly superior intro.

    Didn’t realize just how bad kimbrel had been since he was so good at the beginning of last year


    At one time the best reliever in the game, Kimbrel signed a hefty free agent deal with the Chicago Cubs after the 2018 season, but struggled in his first two years with the Cubs, putting up ERAs of 6.53 and 5.28 in 2019 and 2020.

    He was great again to start 2021, with a 0.49 ERA for the first four months, leading the ChiSox to acquire him for Codi Heuer and Nick Madrigal. Kimbrel had a 5.09 ERA and 4.56 FIP over the final two months for the Sox, however, then gave up 3 runs in 2 innings of work in three games in the ALDS against Houston. There

    Admittedly I have no fucking clue with the AL West and I really haven't followed the off-season that closely to suggest I know anything.

    AL East - Yankees
    Central - White sox
    West - Astros
    WC 1 - Twins
    WC 2 - Jays
    WC 3 - Rays somehow because they always make the playoffs

    NL East - Braves
    Central - Brewers
    West - Dodgers
    WC 1 - Padres
    WC 2 - Phillies
    WC 3 - SF

    White Sox in 7 over the Padres because that would be a fun series

    We would have at least 3 World Series in the last 15 years if baseball wasn’t a dumb sport where players get injuries from doing nothing
