I hate to ask this, I know it is a free board etc, etc. I don't post often in the MLB game threads as many are extremely negative. I get the frustration but I come to the minors for hope. On any given day, someone by virtue of chance will have a decent/good day. Lately, I am seeing the negative spill over to the minors. Could we limit the plain "he sux" comments or put them in a thread about that player? I have no problem with someone wanting to discuss a players poor performance but many of these players most of us have never seen. Many are playing for their careers as roster decisions loom. They are doing all they can in often shitty circumstances. Sorry and I know I will get slammed but everybody have a great day.

    Keep this crap out of minor league threads

    A big league CF is camped under that ball.

    Lol complete nonsense. Your anti madrigal stuff is nauseating at this point. The CF'er took a slightly rounded path to the ball but he did not break in, nor was he slow to break off the bat. He took a route that wasnt 100% efficient but he has good speed and really had no wasted movement in. On balls hit right at you in center, you will naturally take a rounded route because of the angle the ball is coming at you. Was it a perfect route? No. Was it a route that a lot of centerfielders including big leaguers take to that ball? Absolutely.

    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.

    This is an awful point. It wasn't more enjoyable than Hawk and Stone, it was a one time novelty. If that happened for 162 game season people would want to murder Walton by game 3

    I really hope they aren’t planning to call up Robert & Madrigal. Please don’t listen to those whiny SoxMachine b****es like Pnoles and stay the course.

    What do you expect him to say? We’re violating the CBA by gaming his service time, please don’t tell anyone?

    The only do-over I want is the millions of hours I spent on the message board from December through February. Good lord, that was unhealthy.

    Cute, but just remember - this pic is EXACTLY what’s going through people’s minds every time they read one of your silly Abreu rants.

    Remember when you wanted to trade Moncada for a 55 FV prospect but weren’t sure that was doable. Maybe you should give Eloy some more time before jumping ship. He was arguably a top three offensive prospect coming into this season, that will still work even if he has to move to DH at some point.

    Why would anyone still want Robert called up this season?

    A couple more thoughts. I've lived in Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and Houston markets, and I cannot ever remember a franchise that has gone after their own fans nearly as often as this one. AJ Hinch gets mad when another team throws at his players, our manager swears when people dare question him. I think this tells us a lot about how these guys really are indoors - they really are surrounded by yes men. They go around all day with no one willing to step out of line, to propose anything new, or even to suggest that doing things differently might produce different results. They are so used to it that the only way any criticism leaks through - in the occasional press availability - they blow up at them over and over. Williams, Stone, Renteria, and I'm sure Cooper more than once although we've stopped paying attention to those, and that's all just this season. Rick Renteria has a .423 career winning mark, he is 258-352 as a big league manager. But he's absolutely angry at the concept that he might ever incorporate anything new into his managing style. His GM doesn't push him on that, he doesn't work with him on that, he's just in charge and he's absolutely earned it? That's absolutely not how it works in Houston. If management has something they want to try, they work with Hinch on it, and if Hinch has a problem with it, things stay behind closed doors. When people question AJ Hinch, he explains his thinking, admits sometimes things go wrong, and here's what we'll do about it if needed. It's the same setup as the rest of the franchise - how dare you question us, we are owed your allegiance and your money. Everyone around us has told us we're doing a great job, just you angry folks in the press.

    This is the type of bullshit though that leads to Abreu batting 3rd the next two seasons

    Dotel didn’t close any deals, he was setup, man. Castillo was caught stealing, but luckily has a pretty good defense. I’ll see myself out.

    And now Moncada is one of the top 10-15 position players in the game and easily within the 20 most valuable assets in the game. So yah, as CWS said, some patience with young players is needed. The Sox need Eloy in LF most days. He’s improved as the season has gone on, but obviously is still below average. I think he can become an average defender if he puts in the work. The Sox just need Eloy to hit like he can. The power is obviously there, but the hit tool just hasn’t been as strong as I expected. I suspect we’ll see major improvements in 2020, and it’d be nice if he could avoid injuring himself.

    I didn't watch this game, but the Walton stuff sounds like it was fun. I doubt that it will work over the long run, but sometimes it is really good not to take things so seriously. Bill Veeck had his failures but sometimes he did things that were just fun. The White Sox did something right here.

    Walton is by nature someone that is going to be loved or hated. I found myself laughing more than I can remember watching a televised game. Would I want that all year? of course not.

    A genius that deserves an extension. But it is easy with Usain Bolt on 3rd.

    And just so we can all chuckle at Jack’s overreaction a bit more, Vaughn has a wRC+ of 140 at W-S despite a .282 BABIP. He also has more walks than strikeouts.

    You really need to up your game around here if you even remotely thought this pic was either the appropriate and/or funny response to the poster’s well-described view on the importance of leadership. This dopey pic didn’t make a shred of sense as a response to that.
