This Is Your Brain On White Sox

What's nice about this week is that the Sox don't play until Friday when the Mariners come to town for three games. We could use a break. Our overwrought anterior cingulate cortexes need a rest.

Walking And Leading Off

Is it not clear that Frazier is a markedly better hitter early in the game with no one on base in addition to his ability to draw bases on balls?

Todd Frazier Should Lead Off. Seriously.

He's been a disaster with men on base his whole career, yet Ricky Renteria insists on batting him fourth or fifth.

You do the math. How can a 75-year-old man have been in baseball for 80 years?

Let's Play Two, Like We Used To!

The factory worker, cab drivers and the people flipping burgers at McDonald's in many cases have been priced out of the market. Catering to those folks ended long ago.

Alarming Weirdness

On Saturday, more than 29,000 fans jammed the park for a chance to see these two developing ballclubs. Well, that's not really true. The giveaway of a Hawk Harrelson alarm clocks was the real draw.

Rebuilding And Racists

The nights will be cold. The crowds will be sparse. Spending $9.75 for a Modelo Especial is excessive. The drama won't come from the fans. No, it will be all about whether this ballclub can maintain respectability as the rebuild continues. Just the way it should be.

The Pace Of The Game

Maybe it's time that MLB sheds its inferiority complex and celebrates the three hours that folks can spend at the ballpark with friends and family, watching a ballgame, eating a hot dog, and drinking a beer.
