Episode 153 is now available for you to listen. Here is this week’s rundown:
Filling in for Jim is Greg Nix (gnix) of the Ducksnort Podcast. They had Jim on as a guest last week:
- We recap Tank Bowl II which featured great offense when the White Sox were not being no-hit. Can Avisail Garcia catch Jose Altuve? Has this week given us more confidence in Tim Anderson and Yoan Moncada abilities? Should we be alarmed that Reynaldo Lopez only has four strikeouts in his last three starts?
- A quick preview of the Houston Astros series that will feature starts from Lucas Giolito and Carson Fulmer. With the Astros clinching the AL West, will they approach this series differently to prepare for the postseason?
- (27:52) Our guest this week is Max Schleicher of ReviewTrackers. Recently they released a comprehensive look at MLB stadiums that you can read here. After 130,000 fan reviews, Max explains how they came up with the rankings and why Guaranteed Rate Field is considered the best ballpark for food and drink. While the final ranking is not shocking for GRF it rates better than both Fenway and Wrigley Field.
- Finally, we answer your questions in P.O. Sox:
Is it believable that the white sox could compete for a wild card spot next season?— Inter America (@FCInterJoe) September 17, 2017
In five years, will the Sox be signing Moncada, Lopez, Giolito, et al. to extensions or shipping them off for fresh prospects?— Gucas Liogito (@GucasLiogito) September 17, 2017
Given his decent 2 starts, wouldn't Fulmer sinking or swimming in the '18 rotation be a better use of starts than a Tyson Ross type? #POSox— Russell The K9 (@RusselltheK9) September 17, 2017
Do the WS sign any notable FA to flip in offseason or is the roster what it is now with a few guys they get on minor league deals?— Pete Chapman (@PeteCha56613119) September 17, 2017
