    Ivan Nova open to re-signing with the Sox

    I'd be willing to sign him back on a 1 year deal. Giolito, Lopez and Cease will be part of the rotation (barring injury). Kopech will be in the rotation as well assuming he's ready to roll which he should be. They clearly need to add a veteran at the top of the rotation. At the moment, there is not a clear spot for Nova in the rotation, but they are going to have to give a veteran spot starts to not risk the health. Even assuming health of the top 4 in the rotation next season, Nova can probably get 15 starts, that's basically 3 starts a month.

    Renteria goes on pregame anti-analytics rant

    You said it — his reputation with young players. But I remember Cubs fans absolutely despising his in-game management and strategy and love of the bunt, just like many Sox fans currently do. Also, notice how Theo dumped his ass the second a better manager became available and the kids came of age?

    Were these comments in response to why he likes giving away outs by bunting?

    How did the Cubs hire this guy? Yes, he has a reputation for being good with young players, which was probably the overriding factor, but they are also known for favoring numbers/stats. As good as his reputation is with young players (or was when being interviewed with the Cubs), I find it shocking that a guy who seems as indifferent as he does to these number would get the manager job.

    Machado do-over

    But what about the chance for Cole to earn an additional $50 million in incentives if he pitches 200+ innings at ages 34 and 35?

    Or he knows he has another two years of scapegoats by firing Steverson after this year and then Ricky after next year?

    Perhaps Hahn is just an evil genius and is keeping Ricky employed because he knows Ricky will unintentionally tank more games with his awful in-game strategy than an average skilled manager and guarantee Hahn more high first round picks? 🤣

    I was a kid when Bill Veeck was owner of the White Sox and i so badly wanted to root for him. He had a great back story, he loved baseball, he was fun, and he was the owner of MY team...but man he was a terrible owner...he had no money and you'd start to like someone and then he was gone to save money. At that time there was talk of him selling the team and moving it to St Pete...and I was kind of resigned to it...I loved the Sox but it was so terrible to be a baseball laughing stock. When I read this i feel so much like those times...I so badly want to believe that there is a "new way" and that behind the scenes there is a new intelligence led by Hahn. The Robert signing was great, the trades were great, the rebuild was the right thing to do and i still want to believe that in the off season they WILL spend the money. But man they HAVE to fire Renteria. I'm ok with a pleasant old school guy as your manager when you are in this painful rebuild and ignoring the science of baseball actually helps you get the top five picks. But we are about to buy a new Ferrari and hand the keys over to this knucklehead? Please have mercy on our souls.

    Not surprising at all. For a poster who always wants to “JUST WIN BABY”, you sure love supporting stupid opinions by our stupid manager which actually leads to the team losing more games. How ironic.

    Don’t worry, I’m sure Cooper is the exact opposite of Ricky
  16. One of the Mets coaches and Ricky saying something like this literally days apart is laugh out loud funny

    Haha, good analogy. Ricky is living in the past, the old era of baseball. He isn’t going to change.

    Old people hate change. Especially old people who got where they were without the change and pre-change.

    But he isn’t learning from his mistakes. His bunting obsession is ridiculous and the fact that our GM has to release a player because Ricky will use him improperly means that he will never learn or change. Ricky needs to go.

    If the Sox were an NBA team, they would play through the slow, methodical center and shoot 20 footers the whole game.

    With the defection and the injuries, Robert had hardly played until last fall. I figured he would have hit a wall by now. Maybe all the recent k’s are that wall. I would give him a break though after the minor league season ends.

    His justification, based on the ending quotes, seems to be that he hasn’t had enough time or the right personnel to succeed in his career. That would make more sense if he wasn’t representing an organization that just demoted a top prospect after 26 at-bats

    Too lazy to look up. has the guy ever had a winning season? I don't think so. I don't know why he's so confident about his approach it's proven hes a perennial loser year in year out.

    And people wonder why this organization has been a joke for a decade. The more behind the scenes stuff we hear, the more you realize how far this organization is away from the top organizations.
