Default Pop UP Store thread - it's back again this year.

Tim Anderson will be at the Sox popup store in Orland Square Mall this Saturday.

I question the wisdom of the Sox naming these "pop-up" stores. "Line Drive" stores would be more optimistic.

In keeping with the SABR era, these will now be called "Launch Angle" stores brought to you by Statcast.

As for Tim Anderson, I thought I read he is scheduled for an appearance this fall at Wings and Rings on 34th and Halsted.

Would anyone like to wildly speculate how much these players get paid for an appearance like this?

Might just be they have a certain number of appearances a year they have to do or their agent encourages it to build their brand recognition.

No worries. If I was concerned I'd have split the thread when it got bumped.
