    Well today, for example, he drove in his 100th RBI of the year, the 5th year he’s done so in a White Sox uniform, which places him third all-time in White Sox history in doing so. Only Paulie (6 times) and Big Frank (10 times) have done it more often as a member of the White Sox. But I digress - what was that you were saying about Alex Rios?

    Abreu's second RBI today shows his value. 1st of all, he got the first RBI of the game (Hell, he batted in all of the Sox's runs today). Back on topic. The bases loaded against a young guy throwing 100 mph, less than two outs. You have got to put that ball in play. Anderson with his .330 or so average strikes out on three pitches. Abreu, and experienced veteran not in anyway in decline, gets his bat on a ball and the slow roller to 3rd scores the insurance run. You guys who complain about his bat slowing down and all that BS, that was a great at bat, great: a clear compare and contrast between Abreu and Anderson. Yes, he got lucky, but his skill was putting the ball in play to get lucky. And he will continue being this lucky for years yet. Pay the man: three years and at least 36 million. And if you think the Sox showing a valued warrior the respect and paying him what he deserves will keep them from signing some other free agent, you're just being ridiculous. If you have to reach to that level of fantasy to argue against Abreu's value and why he should not be resigned. You're already lost the argument.

    And he has been his whole career, but I still think it’s important to point out his numbers in non-RISP situations are not great and have slowly gotten worse with time. That being said, I love Abreu and think it’s important we bring him back for next couple years if the price is right.

    To argue that RBI's are not important is ridiculous imho.

    Comparing Cutler to Sanchez is nonsense. Who would you rather have? Player A: 3.1 INT % 7.1 Y/A 56.9 COM% 1.32:1 TD:INT Player B: 3.3 INT % 7.1 Y/A 62.0 COM% 1.42:1 TD:INT I think anyone would take player B. Player B is Jay Cutler. Player A is John Elway. The issue was Cutler was really bad when he was bad. But in 2010, he was really good, and when he broke his thumb in 2011, the Bears offense was rolling and he was playing great. When Elway was bad, he was average. Those games don't stand out. The really awful ones do, especially when one of them has rings. Even Steve Young, who notoriously HATED Cutler, ranked the Bears #1 in his power rankings in 2011 because of Jay. One of my biggest hot takes ever is that if he's healthy in 2010 and/or 2011, they win at least one Super Bowl.

    Good post by vile. For some reason if I wrote this I think I'd be accused of trolling. The post has a cool rhythm to it.

    I've been thinking about what I posted in this thread for a while, and really it does me no good to constantly b**** about getting the short end of the stick. Being angry and bitter does me no good, I should just move forward from here and try to make the best of my situation as it exists today.

    Those numbers (RISP slash) are higher than his totals, so obviously they (his RISP numbers) will be better than his other numbers. WIth no one one his slash is .253/.294/.465 With a runner on first his slash is .262/.307/.439 That seems to indicate a guy that is better at hitting with runners in scoring position than he is when there aren't runners in scoring position. There used to be a word for that. I forget what it was. Was it the gas? No that isn't right... the brake? No... Oh well I thought it was something remotely automotive.

    Just to play devil’s advocate, but what’s his line without RISP?

    I'm not sure if you are serious or mocking in this post so I can't really reply.

    Get the crap out of here. Everyone is exactly the same at driving in runs. It is only a function of opportunity. Didn't you know that people can't focus differently in different situations? Don't you know that everyone handles pressure in the exact same manner? Cmon man. Join the revolution.

    You cannot compare playing in the 80's and 90's to someone playing in today's game. Jay Cutler would have thrown 30 int a year if he played in the 80's.

    Well that's my point , they've been winning but no winner threads recently except for this one.Most of the discussion after the game ended was just going on in the game thread.

    Might be a good idea to change this thread title before Parkman causes someone to have a heart attack.

    You'll never get any proof. If he is though, prepare for a $75M payroll next year. Again, it seems like they're doing everything they can to alienate their fanbase.

    You can base it on his recent public statements. Nothing has changed in one regard: Jerry Reinsdorf has never liked giving interviews and hasn't trusted the media for years. He prefers to talk through others such as Harrelson and Farmer and now Stone. Reinsdorf has become a recluse of sorts, and I don't blame him in a way. He has taken a good deal of abuse although he has handed it out, too. In any event, the White Sox feel the media has not been fair to them and so they pick and choose how they do things. I think JR needs an up front and regular spokesman who fans know is speaking for him officially. The team has never manage media relations well.

    Just like Hawk was a mouthpiece for Reinsdorf and the front office, Stone has now filled that role.

    Steve Stone is preparing Sox fans for a disappointing offseason of dumpster diving so the Sox can maintain “financial flexibility.” And a couple more pieces, Steve? Did Bill Walton leave his stash in the booth for Steve to find? It’s already being planned out, folks.

    Some of you guys have Stockholm Syndrome. They didn't ship off all their assets to sign Ivan Novas and Michael Wachas when the window is opening. They could spend 100 million in AAV this offseason and still not be in front half of the league in terms of payroll. They are playing with 90 million dollars this year which is bottom 3 in payroll in all of baseball in a non competitive year.

    The silliest thing to me is that his speed grade hasn't budged at all either. He had the fastest sprint speed in the AFL and in the Futures Game and he can't even get bumped to a 70. That's just ignoring empirical data for no reason. It's absurd to me.

    Remember when men were men and were right back in the factory after they gave birth. Jeez.
