Gamethread: Methup X

Ten years! And, as the undercard, Rangers @ White Sox

Anniversary 5 of the 5th: This was the perfect attendance group for the first five Methups ... five years ago. Today’s host, HSA, is belly-measuring in the middle.

So, not having participated in many of these and certainly not being a member of the All-Timers group (all 10, HSA, KenWo ... ?), there’s little I can offer in terms of Methup history.

But there are a few recaps on SSS that can fill in some blanks — not just for new SSS members, but for those who were there ... and drank it all away ...

Five years ago was Methup V, by all accounts a ribald affair which included the host leading a chant of Fuck Nick Swisher.

There have been holiday meetups.

There have been playoff watching meetups.

Anyway, I figured with early tailgating for Methup X, and the possibility of a loooooooong game like last night, perhaps I should put up a gamethread simply devoted to the SSS gathering. A place for memories, comments, live reports from the scene, whatever.

In all likelihood, there will be no comments whatsoever! But I want to account for the possibility.

And now, let’s catch you up on today’s batch of injuries and transactions, per the White Sox:

The lineups:

Ariel Jurado was just called up from Frisco to make his major league debut tonight, so, trouble:
