Damn, this sucks for the sport and for the White Sox. Him and Eloy being down makes them a lot less interesting, and a lot less competitive this year. Hopefully they can both make strong comebacks, either late this season or next year.

Maybe they will just have a dominant rotation instead? Rodon looks like he has put it all together finally, Dylan Cease has been throwing well, and Kopech looks like the real deal. Giolito/Keuchel/Lynn/Rodon/Cease with Kopech as the 6th starter is a potentially amazing rotation. AL Central is weak, they could still get Eloy and Roberts back by playoff time.

I didn't know that - though looking now, I guess there's been 1 upheld protest in the last 34 years, so if they're not going to actually do anything ever then might as well just get rid of it

When I read this, I thought "that must be the pine tar game with George Brett". Then I followed the link and realized that game was 38 years ago. Holy shit.

This could go in the media forum but Tom Boswell is retiring from the Wash Post after 52 years. Farewell column is here, including a bit about the 2004 ALCS which he calls "the best sporting event I’ve ever experienced."
