South Side Sox Podcast 102 — A Sunday sweep, with a side of controversy

Chrystal O’Keefe, Sam Sherman, Joe Resis, Zach Hayes and Jacki Krestel check in with Brett Ballantini to celebrate a doubleheader sweep in the Bronx — and examine the “Jackie” furor

Well now, this is more like it.

An impossibly happy podcast, on the heels of a White Sox doubleheader sweep in the Bronx, brings the best out of Chrystal O’Keefe, Jacki Krestel, Joe Resis, Sam Sherman, Zach Hayes and Brett Ballantini.

Or does it?

  • Round table vibe check? Solid
  • The outright heroism of Tim Anderson and Michael Kopech
  • But really, dig how good the entire pitching staff has been, more or less. Wow!
  • Some real talk on any progress being made to avoid, or at least properly punish, behavior like we witnessed in- and postgame on Saturday from Josh Donaldson
  • Did Tony La Russa finally make it obvious there’s a bond between him and his team (oh, and watch the Freudian slip from a certain host who will remain nameless)
  • Is this doubleheader/road trip what the White Sox need to kick-start a run, belated or no, at the top of the AL Central
  • The ongoing travails of Lowered Expectations
  • What number podcast is this, anyway
