Now he's playing great don't get me wrong, but let's see how he keeps it going.
I heard that caller. He said that Phegley ''kind of reminds me of Johnny Bench''.....in B & B's world,that translated to the entire delusional White Sox fan base saying that he is the next Johnny Bench,so they went on and on about that opinion for the next hour.
Those guys hate Hawk so much,it has not spilled over to the Sox in general. They worship Theo so much,he can do no wrong,while Hahn and the Sox are just not as smart as Theo.
It is baseball....fans and media always try to compare players to past stars. Bench was short and stocky,right handed and swung for power,hence the comparison to Phegley who has hit 3 homers and 8 rbis in his first five games....who should fans compare him to at this point? Tyler Flowers?
