    If this season doesn't encourage white sox message boards to update their banners in their minors forums than I don't know what will.

    WSI....so outdated. Sosa isn't even that skin tone any longer.

    Pretty sure the Light Tower Power thing is tongue-in-cheek since he literally broke a light during a minor league HR derby:

    Some guy called into 670 last night. Said this was a terrible trade because "only 20% of first rounders make it to the majors", bragged about being a long time season ticket holder, said the Sox should've gotten Schwarber instead.

    The problem with our society is we don't execute people like this.

    Good thing Eloy wasn't a 1st rounder, let alone drafted.

    The old Sox would REALLY love Schwarber.

    The next logical jersey after Konerko and Pierzynski.

    I sure hope they continue to suck so I can go watch him pitch in September for like $15 on a weeknight.

    If only he could have done that for our last place team in a meaningless July game against the M's.

    I'd just rather he not outperform his Sox-self for the Cubs.

    Good news is now Sale and Q can both win Cy Youngs in the same year. Then the pressure will really be on for the can't-miss-kids™ to hit! :erection:

    It would be surprising if he didn't, now that he's facing pitchers in place of DHs.

    Also I hope he pitches great for the Cubs, since Q was a good guy to root for when he was here. Q, unlike Sale, was very easy to root for. Never acted like an ass and never said a word about the lack of run support.

    Cease starting today for Kanny. He struck out the side in the 1st.

    :nicholson2:

    I mentioned this trade to 3 different Cub fan friends today. None of them had more than a basic inkling that the trade had occurred, even after Q's stellar debut.

    Worse. They only vaguely understood that some sort of a trade had occurred.

    I mainly saw Cubs fans bitching that Q sucks because of his W-L record and 2017 ERA (because they're stupid), who immediately after his start in Baltimore are now laughing about how they ripped off the Sox and that now they have a new ace.

    These are life-long Cubs fans, both men and women. They're just stereotypical "What's the score?" types who wrote off this season.

    Some RF sports radio caller said as a Cubs fans he wasn't happy about the trade because Q doesn't have great ace quality stuff.

    This was on Friday.

    Someone said that if it stays the course Q will pitch the Thursday game against the Sox here. I hope so. That means my tickets might sell.

    Sold my Thursday Cubs tickets back in April. Paid for my entire package plus $20.

    Then again, still wouldn't go to that shitshow with or without Q.

    He's pitching on Sunday, so he will miss the SOX entirely.

    Little odd they would have Lester go Saturday when he pitched Monday and have Q go on 6 days rest. Wouldn't surprise me if that's flipped

    Perhaps Maddon would rather throw Q against Wacha and let Lester handle Wainwright.
