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?
