SSHP Podcast 22: Lurker Laura and the 2005 White Sox


Lurker Laura jumps on the podcast to talk about the changes proposed to the 2020 baseball season, including an abridged schedule and shortened draft. And of course, the delicious desert of the podcast is the unveiling of Laura’s diary entries from 2005, her “lost B-Sides” never before published that tell the saga of Carlos Lee, and the triumph of an Opening Day win, and more.

Uh-huh, we’re still on Apple Podcasts.

Actor (final credit: murdered by Albert Einstein in "Carnage Hall"), musician (Ethnocentric Republicans), and Nerf hoops champion, Wiffleball aficionado and onetime bilingual kindergarten teacher, Brett Ballantini also writes about baseball, basketball and sometimes hockey, publishing at the NBA, MLB, NHL, and for Slam, Hoop, Sporting News, the Athletic, and others. He was CSN Chicago’s Blackhawks beat writer for their first Stanley Cup season of 2009-10, and took over the White Sox beat after that. He currently is the editor-in-chief of South Side Hit Pen and managing editor of SB Nation's South Side Sox. He also wrote a book about Ozzie Guillén but is running out of space, so follow him on Twitter @BrettBallantini and he'll probably tell you even more about himself than you ever wanted to know.

I was born and raised in the middle of nowhere, Illinois, and have been a White Sox fan since birth. The first season I remember was 1977, when Jorge Orta was my favorite player. Was so broken-hearted and pissed off about the 1994 strike that I didn’t go back to a game for four years. Single-handedly brought the Sox to a World Series championship in 2005 by attending Opening Day for the first time ever that season, and buying my scorecard from the same vendor at every subsequent game (what, that’s totally real—if you believe you’re playing well because you wear women’s underwear, then you are).
