    Abreu after this season

    Face it, Greg. There are Abreu haters on this board that will never change their mind regardless of facts, data, and pleadings presented to them. It doesn't matter, especially considering we have absolutely no say in whether he stays or goes. All indications are that the Sox like him, and I would expect him to be around for at least one more year to allow Vaughn to get here. Personally, I'd be fine with 2-3 more years. He still delivers offensively and would be a great mentor for Vaughn; he's already shown to be a great mentor and leader. He's on pace to hit 30+ HRs and drive in over 100 runs. His BA is lower than it has been historically, but he's been streaky this year. I still expect him to hit .260+. I get checking advanced stats, but living by advanced stats alone and ignoring traditional ones is no way to value a player.

    Former Sox updates (Avi, etc)

    Yeah I would bet on it being picked up. They need his innings, even if he's a back-end starter.

    Job Thread

    Every accounting/finance job I've had so far was really flexible. Last job I had, my department's boss was so cool. Some people came in at 6:30 every day to leave at 3. Some were not morning people and came in at 10 and worked until 6:30/7. They didn't care when you came in as long as you were there 8.5 hours (including the hour lunch break) and got your work done.

    At least this year the negativity is warranted. Unlike the last 3-4 years you've posted negatively about him.

    Bulls/White Sox Free Agency Status

    So basically the answer to this question is: they have nothing in common with each other.

    Bulls/White Sox Free Agency Status

    Thanks. You answered my original question. There will be no correlation between what the Bulls do next month in Free Agency and the White Sox next winter as far as spending money.

    Job Thread

    I've never understood that sort of "set schedule" mentality in most jobs outside of retail or places with set "open" hours. I mean, when it comes to a job where an office or store is only open certain hours, it makes sense you'd have to be there during those hours -- but for other jobs where there is no official "open/close" time, I don't get the point of micro managing people. The bottom line is, are they getting their work done? If yes, then leave them alone. If not, okay, there is a discussion to be had and expectations to be reset. One of the advantages (and disadvantages) of IT work is for most jobs, there doesn't tend to be a start/stop time. It's an advantage in that you tend to come and go as you please, so long as the work is done, however, on the downside, it could potentially mean working long off hours during times of maintenance, etc.

    Waiting on Jimmy Lambert news.

    Sox sign Hector Santiago

    I still want as many of those bullets spent in the majors as possible.

    Nothing here changes the fact that voodoo isn't real and that Bennetti's commentary has nothing to do with the outcome of a baseball at-bat. He also is not in the dugout or within ear shot of the players. What a shock that a home run or a "wayward fastball" doesn't happen most of the time when he brings it up... They usually happen like every other AB! You can say that you don't like it. However, trying to cement your argument with "it's magically changing the outcome" isn't exactly convincing. And the army abiding by superstition is understandable. The stakes are as high as they could possibly be. It doesn't make it real... but it makes them more comfortable. That doesn't mean a crippled dude in a booth 100 feet away from a baseball game is working magic.

    6/23- Sox at Rangers, 2:05, WGN

    Make it nearly 60 years, if you go all the way back to the ‘59 World Series. 5 postseason appearances for our Sox in the past 60 years. If the Cubs make it to the playoffs year, that’ll be five years in a row for them just in this past half decade. Our beleaguered fan base has suffered quite a bit during all of our entire lifetimes, no matter what your age. Not a whole lot on the White Sox winning front to cheer for over the years. Hopefully the ‘20s here in this upcoming decade will stem the flow of these previous deplorable results. White Sox fans are due and deserve so much better!

    Bugger off with your nonsense, already.

    Where is Jake Burger?

    How could this dude have been taken in the first round? Did Hostetler even watch any vides of this guy? Has anyone in the Chicago sports media questioned Hostetler about this pick? Burgur has not been able to control his weight. He lacks balance, flexibility and speed. And then the Sox take Vaughn who profiles the same way.

    Abreu after this season

    Why do you despise one of our better hitters so much? Again, he is an actual worthy big leaguer. We've had so many hitters on this team this year and past several years who are not big league hitters. Why pick on one of our best players? Do you want we Jose lovers to admit he's not Pujols in his prime? Of course I'll admit it. Jose is not overpaid by any means. He has been one of our better hitters his entire stay in Chicago. Is your beef you'd rather save the money he gets and give it to some other free agent? Yonder Alonso isn't exactly tearing it up. All Jose does is play the game the right way. He's not some mega superstar, fine. You win. He is again ... ONE OF OUR BEST PLAYERS. He put together a fine little career. That means nothing I guess. Again ... are you out to save jerry a few bucks? Uh, I don't think Jerry needs your help when he threw money out the window when he signed Jay and Alonso. Nobody needs the money; Jose takes a good chunk, tries to earn his keep and you hate him. Again WE ADMIT HE"S NOT GOD'S GIFT TO HITTING, NOT DICK ALLEN, NOT RICHIE ZISK ,not the Big Hurt. But he's been one of the top hitters in our lineup for years. And you despise him. It's sick.

    He does just fine when the team he bad. Jose is King of hitting when there is no pressure. The guy was worth 1.2 fWAR last year and has been worth 0.3 fWAR this year. He just isn't that good! Sub 800 OPS this year. You replace him with Palka or Collins and not much changes IMO

    Where is Jake Burger?

    Not wasted, but I've given up on him. If he produces, that would be a great surprise. He then becomes tradeable to plug leaks on our roster.

    Have the White Sox ever started worse pitchers?

    Neither can you.

    Abreu after this season

    Our lineup would be so bad without Abreu. In your hatred of him do you realize how hard it's been on him for years with such a pathetic lineup and so little protection around here? Do you realize how tough it is to hit year after year when the team blows so badly? Just give Abreu his $$$s and forget about it. Better he get some money than Jerry pocket even more.

    6/23 Games

    Cam Simmons is off to a nice start with Great Falls. I'd like to see Dawkins move up to W-S and Simmons move up to Kanny before the year ends. He has a nice under the radar profile, but he's 22. Let's push him a bit.
  22. caulfield12

    The $$$$ will be spent!

    Therein lies the problem. For every Hunter Renfroe, Baustista or Nelson Cruz, there are our four minor league outfielders...who...if you somehow assembled them together, MIGHT actually be the equivalent of a 2.5-3.0 fWAR player on the corner (this doesn’t even count Call and Fisher disappointing.) With Eloy anchoring the other side...you have almost no choice but to get someone with some athletic tools, especially the ability to throw and cover ground...because Robert’s eventually going to get hurt again trying to do too much if he has to cover both gaps. Ozuna keep this up, his total contract dollars will be closer to $100 than $50 million. Or we put Choo in the way back machine via the assistance of Sherman & Peabody.

    6/23- Sox at Rangers, 2:05, WGN

    For all the nonsense of him being here because he's someone's brother in law and the fact that he has been awful, he does seem to be a likeable guy. I Know that is not a reason to keep him around and I do think he should be dfa sooner rather than later, there is still a part of me that does want him to work out for the Sox.

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    He is a FA after next year. What if he doesn’t want to stay here?

    Have the White Sox ever started worse pitchers?

    The other side to the Navarro story was that then GM Ron Schueler came right out and claimed that Sox pitcher Kevin Tapani (a quality starter who had a good 96 for the team) was 'faking' a finger injury and that was the reason he wasn't interested in resigning him. The Cubs did sign him...and he had to sit out the first half of the year because of the "fake" injury. He came back to pitch and was OK, not great but certainly better than Navarro who was signed by Schueler to take his place in the rotation.
