    The Anderson Saga (continued from game thread)

    I don't have anything against a player celebrating. Konerko raised his fist after his WS grand slam and there is a statue at the ballpark depicting that. I just think there is a way to do everything and I prefer a hitter to at least begin running out his hit before any celebration. This doesn't mean I condone what the Royals pitcher did even though Anderson got hit in a good spot. One other thing: The White Sox have spent almost this entire decade under .500. I don't feel like celebrating that. Finally, one poster said Mickey Mantle liked to throw his bat. Tim Anderson is not Mickey Mantle. He's not even Tim Anderson yet.

    Time for a change ... Don Cooper needs to go

    Me, too. I thought the oxygen stopped making its way to his brain right after the 2005 Series.

    The Anderson Saga (continued from game thread)

    How about this? How about having a winning season for a change?
  4. First, I think it was a low class thing to throw at Anderson. But I don't like theatrics. Sammy's homer hop not only got old, it affected his game. One time his drive went off the wall and he only got a single. Another drive went off the wall and he got thrown out at second. Run the ball out and celebrate later and play the damned game like it is supposed to be played. Like I said in another post, Tim is just coming into his own. He doesn't need this distraction. Secondly, he is still developing and still has to improve at his position. Homers are great but errors and dumb plays in the field are not. Tim can be a real star. He needs to cut this nonsense and become the great player he can become.
  5. In general, I don't like this stuff. Play the game and skip this nonsense. I didn't see any theatrics regarding any Harper homer, but I don't like the guy despite his abilities. He gets himself thrown out of the games and has anger management problems. Major leaguers are professionals. They should cut the showboating and concentrate on the game. It' s hard enough as it is.
  6. Not a good game. Even with all the nonsense, the Sox should have won this game and didn't.
  7. Game should have been won in the fourth inning. KC was asking to be beat, and the Sox should have scored five or even more to break the game open. Sending Abreu home was a dumb decision. Adam Engel doesn't belong in the starting lineup. He is a defensive replacement and that is all. Hitting Anderson was low class, but I really wish he'd quit the theatrics. He is starting to come into his own, and he should just play ball. Save the celebrations when you're in the dugout or after the game.

    The Rick Hahn Dynasty

    Ultimately RIck Hahn will be judged on this rebuild. It's his baby. He decided on a definite course and has to see it through. Prospects have to be called up at the right time and then developed in the right way. He must realize now that big-time free agents will not be coming to the White Sox. So he must find a way to create a veteran presence on this team without big contracts. A lot is riding on this. It the rebuild doesn't succeed, the White Sox will probably become the Pirates. One thing is certain: this process is painfully slow. We will see if it gets slower.

    Calling for anyone's firing is a futile act. Change just doesn't come with this organization no matter how badly it needs it. Might as well accept this fact as it is. It is bad enough that the team has go through another losing season without tilting at windmills.

    April 10 Gamethread 1:10pm first pitch

    I remember a similar streak in 1989. Seven straight losses and the Sox were outscored 63-14. That team ended up in last.
  11. Anyone who thinks this rebuild is going to work is crazy.

    4/7- Sox vs Mariners, 1:10, WGN

    The play of Moncada and Anderson has been a source of great encouragement. Almost giving up 30 runs in a three game series is not.

    I wasn't at the game, but could see the emotion even on TV. Sox fans often get libeled as fair-weather, but the ones who attend games show a lot of emotion. It's about time Sox fans get credit for that. It's also about time to let go of all the slander. It helps to give them something to cheer about.

    Sox Home Opener vs Ms

    The win was a gift from Seattle, but the play of Moncada and Anderson was great.

    That is one excuse for leaving Lopez in. Not a whole lot behind him.
