Boom goes the manure drop!

Nice qualifier, Bob. Was it Rick, Ken or Jerry who insisted on it in exchange for the scoop?

Hate to unleash another post where comments are a snake eating itself, but hey, it wasn’t my decision to play Kris Bryant games with our No. 1 prospect.

Silly us, thinking we could hold the front office’s feet to the fire.

Because we now get to spend September CLOSELY EVALUATING Daniel Palka, Nicky Delmonico, Avisaíl García, Ryan LaMarre and Adam Engel, who’s got dibs on who? I know I don’t want to watch any of them any longer, so have at it, friends.

Pregame update:

The White Sox have released a statement indicating that no decision has been made on who’s coming up when rosters expand. CYA central. Anyway, purportedly Rick Hahn is talking to the media on Monday — not today, not Saturday, not Sunday, but Monday — to address the situation.

That sound you hear, Rick, isn’t Chris Sale with shears — it’s 50,000 White Sox fans cutting up jerseys.

Or Bob Nightengale, getting squashed under a bus.
