Hand Sewn mittens aren’t a bad gift. Quite honestly, any gift should be appreciated.
Mittens are useful, especially during a blizzard.
Considering how the White Sox have performed over the last three seasons, they’re under a blizzard warning right now, at least until they can turn the tide a bit.
Steve Pearce is a career .756 OPS hitter, but he hasn’t played often as a regular. Pearce had a breakout year in 2014 as a 31 year old with the Baltimore Orioles.
He posted an impressive .930 OPS with over 20 home runs in a hitter friendly Camden Yards. After playing in 102 games in ’14, Pearce was much less stellar last year.
Still Pearce has a career .824 OPS versus lefties. He would have actually been a great platoon partner with Trayce Thompson had he not been dealt.
