Kris Bryant Blows His Ankle Out Catching Routine Pop Out

#Pray4Kris pic.twitter.com/KSWvb6QQXo — Red Line Radio (@RedLineRadio_) June 29, 2017 Well fuck me sideways. Kris Bryant is one of the 5 best players on the planet and this could NOT have come at a worse time. Like it’s been hard enough playing musical chairs with everyone else on this goddamn team. Bryzzo can only do so much. The real freaking out can wait until we get word back on how significant the injury is. General rules of thumbs (or however you pluralize that)… strain = okay… tear = fuck me. I want to get more information before I start...

September 23rd, Red Line Radio Is Taking Part In The Lap Allstar Challenge

Do you have an iPhone?  If the following answer to your question was “no” then I don’t trust you as far as I can throw you and you need to catch up to 2017 immediately.  If yes, open your reminders and save the date on September 23rd – this is an event I promise is a flat out blast to be at. Long story short, it’s a 12” charity softball game between ex-Cubs and ex-Sox players of years ago, followed by a barbecue afterwords where you get to mingle with all of the players.  There’s legit no excuse to...

Red Line Radio Presents: The Tryout – Part I

Look, Carl and I talk a big game.  Anyone who listens to our podcast knows that.  It’s undoubtedly just the cocky Chicago attitude we have embedded deep in our gene pools, but at the same time he pitched in the Big Ten and I drunkenly hit 88 at a Sox game last summer on a gun that probably hasn’t been calibrated in since the Karkovice era, and that’s all the reinforcement we really need to know that we are ready for the Big Leagues.  Since Rick and Theo haven’t banged down our doors (yet), we figured indy ball was...

For the 2nd night in a row, the Dodgers hit a go-ahead home run in the 8th inning off Andrew Miller

So far in 2017, Andrew Miller has been his usual unhittable self. As the anchor of the defending AL champs’ formidable bullpen, Miller has amassed some ridiculous stats up until June 13th  (MLB rank among qualified relievers in parentheses) 0.29 ERA (1st) 0 HR allowed (T-1st) 1 ER allowed (T-1st) .128 opponent BA (3rd) 0.61 WHIP (3rd) Dominance. Pure dominance. But Cody Bellinger didn’t give a shit about any of that when he stepped in to face Miller with the score locked at 2-2 in the 8th inning on Tuesday night. https://www.redlineradioshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/asset_2500K.mp4   The first home run Andrew Miller...

The White Sox Select Jake “Beef” Burger #11 Overall

Well this is a surprise.  Not in a surprise in a bad way, because Jake Burger can absolutely mash, which we’ll get to in a minute, but a surprise because literally nobody saw the White Sox taking Jake Burger 11th overall today.   I had 3 or 4 scouting report blogs ready to go on players I thought would fall to the Sox today, including JB Bukauskas, Jeren Kendall, and yes, Austin Beck, though that was probably a pipe dream.  Let’s dig into this selection: First, I want to talk about the players the White Sox didn’t draft really quickly:...
