Jean-Pierre Melville: Quand tu liras cette lettre

The White Sox made 11 roster moves this morning, which is surely not a sign of desperation following an 8-21 March/April. The Orioles, meanwhile, are 19-9. And coincidentally, the White Sox’ closest statistical comparison is the 2018 Orioles, who lost 115 games, which is a lot in a 162 game season.

This episode, we’re delving into more French movies with Quand tu liras cette lettre (When You Read This Letter). And maybe more coming up! Listen in and find out.
