South Side Sox Podcast 115 — Meet the (four) Players!

A quartet of new site talent — Melissa Sage-Bollenbach, Marj Raguso, Allie Wesel and mysoxarewhite join Brett Ballantini to introduce themselves — and weigh in on the 2022 White Sox experience

It’s been a while since we’ve met some SSS players, and this time around, we’re introducing four at once — new writers Melissa Sage-Bollenbach, Allie Wesel, Marj Raguso and Elizabeth (mysoxarewhite). Our newest injection of talent into the site sat down with Brett Ballantini to talk bout their path to the White Sox — and about the club we are surfing through the 2022 season with.

  • Grandfathers and fathers — and in at least one case, defying a mother! — help set the stage for Sox fandom
  • Both Allie and Elizabeth were stunned by the atmosphere of the 2021 ALDS Blackout Game 3, while Melissa reveled in the corn-swathed Field of Dreams Game and TA’s dramatics
  • Each woman’s route to SSS, possibly involving presumed pranks
  • Injuries dominate assessments of the 2022 season — and the team’s prospects for the postseason
  • Marj suggests that an outright bad team might be better — or at least less tortuous — than this one-step-forward, one-step-back club we’re watching this year
  • Speed round: most inspiring and most disappointing 2022 White Sox
  • More speed: Favorite baseball movies
  • And, final word: Field of Dreams, thumbs-up or -down?
