    If the season is lost, how will it affect players?

    Long time reader, don't post on here all that often. Lot of conjecture going on here right now! Which is cool, because this is a message board, where opinions can be thrown about without recourse. That said, I wish some of you would go back to talking about how tomorrow's weather 'would' have impacted the game. How inconsiderate the Sox are for not cancelling before people take the day off work, or how big of a dick move it would have been to allow 33,000+ people inside the stadium in to sell beer, etc. just to make money before cancelling it, which they could have done at 9:00am. Maybe, some of you can talk about how bad we look after low-balling Manny Machado. At least some of those topics, we all have minor knowledge on. TURN OFF CNN FOLKS! This isn't political at all! TURN IT ALL OFF! If some of you really don't think there will be a 2020-2021 basketball or hockey season, or a 2021 baseball season with fans, etc. you are doing exactly what the media wants you to do! Panic! This specific virus will never go away permanently. Just as H1N1 is still around, AIDS is still around, etc. The thousands of brilliant scientists in the world will come up with something to help with this. I'm worried that with the relentless negativity, along with the isolation we are experiencing, some of you might not be around to enjoy the 2022 World Series Championship (played in Chicago, with fans). Relax, wash your hands and watch Tiger King!

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Totally agree with you! One of the dumber trade possibilities I've read lately. But, since we are talking about the White Sox FO ... what if this was actually true??

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    I too feel like today is Dallas Kuechel day.

    Tsutsugo - UPDATE: To Rays

    I mean, at this point, you just have to assume the Sox were a "bigger" offer right?

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    This is pretty much spot on! Guys, you've all said it ... It comes down to money. Jerry won't spend it. End of story. We will not work with Scott Boras because we know he will squeeze every penny out of us. Jerry doesn't like that. The Mazara move is another example. I don't "hate" the trade, but it is another move that was made, simply to say we "made a move". As opposed to simply going out and paying for one of the two players (Ozuna/Castellanos) who are established MLB professional players (I don't give a sh*t about the defensive metrics, that can be debated another time because all the options were bad), we chose to give away prospect capital for a player we hope breaks out with a change of scenery. In reality, it's because 5.7 million this season, is less than 14-16 million. It's the same with the Bulls. There is a reason we end up with the Carlos Boozer's and Pau Gasol's of the world and not the Dewayne Wade's, Carmelo Anthony's, etc. If I had to guess ... "Plan B" will be Ivan Nova and Brett Anderson. That way the money that "will be spent" will still be around for one more year closer to sale/death for Jerry.

    Angels sign Rendon - 7yrs 245

    Yes, very difficult to not have this opinion. The Angels have an owner who “loves” Anthony Rendon, so he will spend whatever necessary to attain that player. Our guy simply loves money, so he will do whatever necessary to save it all.

    Nomar Mazara Speculation

    It’s rumors like this that really make me think ... “you know, I could really be a GM of a baseball team.” Can anyone confirm, was Osuna’s flight delayed an entire day???

    Sunday Game Thread

    Encouraging start to the second half by ReyLo. I guess that has made today tolerable.

    Collins getting called up

    Hoping one of these prospects come up and go bananas right away. From a power standpoint, Collins could be that guy! Sucks seeing guys like Soto, Acuna, Torres, Riley, etc. come up and rake right away while our guys need to “develop more at the big league level”.

    The 2020 Rotation - What’s Your Plan?

    Sink large money into starting pitching. The offense will be fine with continued development and a piece here or there (Castelleanos, Puig, etc.) 1. Cole 2. Giolito 3. Hamels 4. Kopech 5. Cease
  12. Is there any chance the Yankees would want Colome? You can never have enough bullpen arms in the postseason. Clearly a logjam in the OF for them. Any chance we could swing for Clint Frazier?
  13. I need only one at-bat from each Rondon and Sanchez to again question why either of them is blocking Danny Mendick from even getting a chance.

    White Sox @ Astros: a game thread

    Wait, they didn't send you a home plate shaped seat cushion? I got mine! I felt appreciated!

    White Sox @ Astros: a game thread

    No accountability in the entire organization. Yet we all still watch all the games, pay money for tickets, and spend time away from family to talk about it. Who are the real idiots here? (Yes, thumb firmly pointed at myself)
