    Small steps, right? Right? First step was winning a fucking game on Monday.... done. The second step was getting Mookie and the fucking sad offense uncorked... done. 6.5 games was too close..... done! We still got fucking problems. Price has been the 2nd half's best pitcher by far... XRays are negz but still.... shit..... fucking shit! 7.5 games is still too fucking close. We gotta get our starting pitching straightened out.... Sure. 7 fucking awesome dominant innings would be awesome. But I'll take it in steps...... 6 innings with less than 3 runs. Our bullpen is still a goddamned fucking nightmare. But Kelly is starting to look like his early season form again. Keep it up, chumps.... keep on getting your fucking shit back together. And while y'all at it... fuck the fucking Yankees!!!

    I'll be in attendance at this one at beautiful Guaranteed Rate Field.

    I actually like the park pretty well. It's not the best big league ballpark, but it's still a big league ballpark — they play baseball there! I can get there from my apartment on one train. What's not to like? Even bad pizza is still pizza.

    The White Sox are coming off an 11-4 stretch against DET, KCR, MIN, and NYY, while the Red Sox, as you may be aware, have been playing pretty badly over a similar stretch, at least by their own high standards, so I don't feel as confident as I might otherwise given the general situation of these teams in the success cycle.

    But this will be my only in person Red Sox game this season, so let's make it a win.

    I find their shit is still spread around a little more than I prefer. Win today and it should get closer.

    Potentially season-defining 10-game stretch starts today.

    Anything 6-4 or better and I'll be overjoyed. I don't think that's possible unless all shit is present and accounted for in a reasonable and reliable manner. So, yeah, and fuck the Yankees.

    Tonight's Chicago starter leads the league in ER and BB, and doesn't get a lot of Ks.

    By the end of these threads we might have enough shit together to build ourselves a full scale replica of Yankee Stadium.

    The Margarita vendors do help. But how the hell did they build that park without a view of the skyline?

    Not sure if I like Holt at 1B over Mitch.

    If 2 Bags has knee issues, we need to put Blake there at least.

    I’m bringing the fam to comiskey/the cell/whatever bank paid them this year, so I suspect I spend most of the night in the fundamentals area, so I’ll have to use audio keys to figure out what’s happening.

    One, praise to all things holy that JDM is batting third.

    Two, I assume that Moreland is banged up still. Holt over Mitch at first cant be an actual choice.

    Three, this line from the OP makes me knees weak: “And while y'all at it... fuck the fucking Yankees!!” Some say “enough with the Yankees hate/obsession.” I say screw that. As one Sosher wrote years ago, “if they were 0-161, and won the final game of the season, a little part of me would die inside.” Let the venom flow, @Trotsky.

    As long as it's made well I like all pizza. Deep dish, thin, Sicilian - whatever. Bring it on with LOTS of cheese.

    With Sale and Price down and this bullpen this team is going to need to score 5 runs or more a game for the next two weeks. Porcello needs to step up as the rest of the rotation is not reliable. Win. Please.

    All that dough though. Sometimes I get chided for ordering pizza a little bit thicker, so when I hold it properly with one hand, the toppings don’t all slide off. Has to be thin, I get. But a full inch of unbroken plain dough?
