Here is this week's rundown:
- We debate if Chris Sale can break the record for consecutive games with at least 10 strikeouts against a Toronto Blue Jays offense that is one of the best in all of MLB. Plus we examine how his fastball has been the key difference maker during this streak.
- Dan Szymborski joins the program to share his opinion on why a team would have to buy Jeff Samardzija off the White Sox vs. the south siders selling him off. He shares what ZiPS is projecting for the 2nd half and who could make a surprise run in the 2nd half.
- Brooks Boyer, CMO for the White Sox, gives us the inside scoop on the World Series Reunion that is set for July 17-19th. Plus he shares new deals for tickets and giveaways that are first announced on the show.
- Finally, we get to your questions in P.O. Sox. Here are the gems:
@SouthSideSox Major reasons for Rodons inefficiency? Bad defense, not trusting stuff, nibbling, still working on command?— Patrick Kelly (@DrChaoborus) July 5, 2015
@SouthSideSox Why do Sox get so little US national media attention? As a fan in the UK, I follow major network media, and there is very 1/2— Heavy Sid (@heavy_sid) July 5, 2015
@SouthSideSox 2/2 little abt Sale given how awesome he is.If he was a Cub, coverage would be wall-to-wall! Also WS 05 hardly ever mentioned.— Heavy Sid (@heavy_sid) July 5, 2015
