White Sox Business: A show about the Chicago White Sox
Hey cool Biz and Bizners, it's your favorite Bizner producer, Producer Cam. Did you know there are few things that can survive contact with molten rock? Just (tiger) food for thought. The Athletic's Cubs beat reporter (and 'Onto Waveland' podcast co-host), Sahadev Sharma, joins the guys in imagining a divisional realignment, as reported by USA Today's Bob Nightengale, that would pit the Sox in the same grouping as the Cubs (4:10). Sahadev and James reveal their Cubs and White Sox Super Teams (9:30), and discuss the result of the controversial simulated game between the two fantasy clubs (#ShadySahadev - 15:20). Sahadev and the Sox Squad postulate if the pandemic has effectively closed the Cubs' window of contention (22:20) and if Kris Bryant will re-sign (31:00). Tom and James dive into the latter's piece about new Bears' tight end, Cole Kmet, and how the White Sox coveted him at one point (39:30).Follow Tom on Twitter: @TomFornelliFollow James on Twitter: @JRFeganFollow Sahadev on Twitter: @sahadevsharmaFollow molten rocks on Twitter: @WriteSoxSave 40% off your first-year subscription to The Athletic by visiting: theathletic.com/southside Learn more about your ad choices.

I really like the way Sahadev covers baseball. He's making us smarter fans with the way he breaks down the game. This episode, is all about how it almost didn't happen for him. He was working outside of sports before he decided to succeed or fail at what he's passionate about. Don't worry, there's a ton of baseball geeking out in here too.
