    What exactly is your job again? I'm sure there might be just a few who would be interested in it.
    Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
    I hope that's all.

      I do chem research (I was working with butanol and other alcohols), and the idea for the thread came while I was waiting for a reaction to cool down and I was discussing the Red Sox's season with my lab partner, and he compared it to the Yankees' 1998-2000 run. The actual baseball research came after work.

      I don't recommend any work with chemicals to anyone, unless they like long hours at the lab and massive writeups. But there is a lot of time in between experiments, in which I usually talk sports with fellow lab partners.

          I do some research with alcohols myself. Usually while I'm watching the Tribe, Cubs, or REds play.

              As a huge Mets and Knicks fan I feel like the teams should be giving me a grant for my alcohol related research.

                  Updated the info in this thread. The White Sox had their best finish as defending champs in franchise history...
