On this episode of FutureSox Hot Takes & Heaters Nick Murawski and Danny Miller take stock of what has happened since their last stream. Danny drove in big circles for 24 hours and Nick went to the Nats vs. White Sox with his family. The Yankees put it to the Sox over the weekend and the Blue Jays opened the series in Toronto yesterday by punching the Sox in the mouth. But in glorious normal fashion, the White Sox put up a victory on Hot Takes and Heaters Tuesday. 
Andrew Vaughn started to seem to figure it out, but then regressed. Corey Julks came and gave a little spark while Tommy Pham keeps it real. Garrett Crochet is still awesome.
