  2. My school's team in ranked #1 in the San Antonio area. It's amazing how the players embrace the culture and work hard in the classroom.

    I don't think they can win it. Too many already view TLR as a racist. Not a good look. Too old . Too long retired, Already in the HOF because he completed his career. Do you want to risk offending our players , our fans, the fans of baseball all over the world ? What message would the White Sox as an organization be sending ? Does Hahn really want to speak over and over to defend his choice of TLR or Hinch. They don't need a controversial pick like Hinch or TLR, despite the old saying that "There is no such thing as bad publicity." That era is over.

    Ah. Yeah I looked at him last week but didn’t see any mentions of him so figured there wasn’t interest in the NL teams.

    I wasn't trying to blast you.

    There was literally nothing intelligent about ChiSox1917's ignorant post filled with inaccuracies and mistruths. The fact that the guy wrote this sentence: "i dont agree that their experiences trump impersonal data and statistics that there is a systemic issue of racism in this country." Shows how ignorant and misinformed he is. People that continue to spew this nonsense should not be respected for "having a differing opinion." Their unwillingness to listen is exactly why things haven't improved for so many.

    He was fired for being awful and replaced by Melvin wasn't he?

    Bob Geren is a former catcher, really heavily into analytics and has managing experience. The White Sox have a type in this search outside of one major outlier.

    To clarify my stance. I do not think TLR is misinformed because he does not believe kneeling during the anthem is appropriate. I think he is misinformed about another comment he made in addition to it. As Sox fans it is nice to share our views as it adds perspective and knowledge to each of us. That is why I am glad this thread has not been locked. But as I said in my most recent post, calling someone a racist is a VERY big deal. And as a man of color, I will always give someone the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. People grow up in different situations and are taught different beliefs and I'm okay with that. A racist to me is someone that actively discriminates, puts down, and oppresses because of race. I don't think TLR fits the bill here because I think he is simply an abrasive and outspoken personality to begin with regardless of your race. I think many Sox fans also won't give his comments the benefit of the doubt because they don't want him here at all costs.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    And few tourists or outside contact. When I was out that way a couple months ago I stopped in a gas station and put on a mask and fresh gloves to go inside. The clerk thanked me and mentioned how she felt bad but she wasn't as neighborly to strangers as she normally would have been. But I noticed her spraying and wiping as I was leaving. We had 450 students sign up for in person classes but less than 200 are actually coming on campus. Our total enrollment is 3,200. I have one or two in each class each day and basically have to ignore them in person and work with them on line. Anecdotally it seems more students that selected virtual classes are testing positive than in person. We believe it's because many of those kids are working in fast food and retail operations. The district is requesting all teachers report to campus which is causing some stress. Currently about 120 of our 140 teachers are on campus.

    Searched Rob Green on google. First article I see: https://www.ibtimes.com/oakland-fires-manager-bob-green-after-disastrous-performance-644762?amp=1

    Totally forgot he managed the A’s back in the day. Definitely someone worth talking to if you’re doing a complete interview process.

    Got excited for a second and then realized that Ron Washington’s team is out. Has to be Rob Green.

    Robert is probably his given name and his Sir name is near to a color.

    There’s another former manager in one of the dugouts as well.

    I said it’s either Dave Roberts or Matt Quatraro. The either was the key word. Obviously your too stuck in la la land about TLR to even read my post carefully. I would be all for a Roberts hire but did I say he is a candidate? No, I was only mentioning it as an option or a possibility.
  20. Things are seldom just black or white. Many shades of gray IMO.

    Got to be Quatraro

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    You've had some interesting posts on COVID, many I disagree with obviously. I'd like to hear your summation of what we should be doing now and what should have been done then in 10 paragraphs or less. Pls. take into consideration EVERYTHING ... the insidious disease, but also the economy (not the big corps but the little guys and gals need to eat and have shelter) and mental health. You are very opinionated and get upset at others' comments like mine a lot. I'd like to see your plan in a nutshell. What should be done now and what shoulda been done at the start all the way thru late fall into this dark winter. Thank u in advance.

    White Sox fan taunts Astros during ALCS

    They better interview this Sox fan if the Sox hire the manager who cheated.
  24. greg775

    What would you have done ...

    True. And it's really WRONG to hire the guy if you are the Sox. Especially when Tony is available and others are available. The distraction would be ridiculous, hiring a guy who had to cheat to win. Cmon. The Sox don't need the distraction.

    Dave Roberts won't be leaving the Dodgers after reaching the WSeries IMO. Cmon are we at this point that a manager must win it all or get fired? I say no. The guy is the NL champion and he did a nice job letting that guy pitch the last 3 innings rather than bring in somebody for the 9th.
  26. skooch

    What would you have done ...

    That's why I added option c). Walking away for undisclosed family reasons was also an option if you really disapprove of the cheating but can't stop it. You could preserve your integrity (if you are afflicted with such) as well as your future career opportunities. He didn't do that either.
