And the first song from them — “One Man, Five Tools” — can be heard over at Productive Outs.

I’d review the song in an objective, non-fan boyish way, but the last thing I want is to be accused of being a killjoy again, so allow me to say that it’s the greatest song in the history of popular music and the only way to enjoy it is to believe this is so.

LAS VEGAS — The White Sox have acquired pitcher Ivan Nova from the Pirates. No word yet on what the Pirates are getting back. The deal is except for the medicals, Ken Rosenthal reports.

Nova posted a 4.19 ERA and 114/35 K/BB ratio in 161 innings across 29 starts in 2018. He’s basically an innings eater at this point who can probably be expected to be around a league average pitcher. He’ll make $8.5 million in 2019.
