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.
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."
