South Side Sox Podcast 32 — Opening Day Pregame Show

Joe Resis, Leigh Allan, Tommy Barbee and Chrystal O’Keefe hop on with Brett Ballantini to talk Opening Day!

We run a full five-pack of SSS writers at you, talking White Sox Opening Day!

Aside from crafty Sun-Times and Vanilla Coke product placements from Chrystal, here’s what went down, as the minutes tick toward opening pitch:

  • Is the Central Division’s improvement going to pose a problem for the White Sox?
  • Tommy wins the best Opening Day gear battle, with a rocking ~1917 throwback
  • The left field dilemma — or will Andrew Vaughn forever destroy the arbitration cases of left fielders by playing passable, even good, left-field defense?
  • Yes, Eloy in left is addressed
  • Chrystal wins the well-cropped studio background battle — and reveals her key to putting BillyOK to shame when it comes to her devotion to the South Siders
  • Bask in the awesomeness of the White Sox bullpen
  • Tim Anderson’s mouth — unsung MVP of the White Sox
  • “Outfit man” Joe Resis explains his support for Luis Robert for Sox MVP, possibly even without threats from his Las Vegas sources
  • Are we out of danger when it comes to playing a full, healthy season as a pandemic still rages more than whimpers?
  • Which of our Eastern Time Zoners will make it until game’s end for our postgame podcast? (Answer: ALL OF THEM!)
  • Yes, there will be a postgame podcast
  • And, of course, predictions for tonight’s game!
