    Just read a write-up on him the other day. The encouraging thing is that he's hitting pitches that he has had trouble with previously. He also actually managed to keep the weight off throughout spring training instead of just gaining it all back once baseball started. He'll clearly drop off, but even a serviceable offensive line is better than what we've seen from him. His fielding is still next level bad, though.

    I feel really bad for Jacob May, btw. There's no way he's not in his own head at this point. Hoping he hits a bloop single soon to break out of this stretch.

    0-4 today with 4 more Ks. OPS-ing .388 on the season.

    Wonder if he got popped on a test and is playing through an appeal
    Dude is also 36. I get that he broke out late, but he still had a lot of miles before he figured out how to hit. There's a reason he didn't really receive much in terms of offers this offseason.

    Sadly no. That is his OBP plus Slugging at this point.

    His slugging percentage is lower than the Jays winning percentage

    Really enjoying the Eric Thames experience. Might actually motivate me to drive up to Miller Park to see a game again this summer

    Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in MLB history five years ago today. His career cratered shortly thereafter, but that's a helluva peak.

    Wasn't a fan of Basio's interview about it but Lackey's presser after he gave up that homer was pretty funny I thought

    A group led by Derek Jeter and Jeb Bush (!) have apparently purchased the Marlins.

    Pleasant surprise to have the White Sox above .500 20 games into the season.

    Yep! And a Royals sweep!

    Leury killed them.
    On a fast track to half sane.

    Totally. So much for tanking for a better draft pick.

    I just read that Matt Albers is pitching for the Nationals. I figured he'd be out of baseball.

    Latos also has a job, apparently. Weird.

    Anyway, your 2017 White Sox are currently in first place.

    Crazy that Rodon hasn't even made his season debut yet.
