    AND THAT'S A WHITE SOX WINNER!!!

    Had to leave after the top of the seventh. Had a sinking feeling it was going to be nine in a row. Glad they let Cease finish out the sixth. Too bad he didn't get the win, but a win is a win.

    "We still very much believe." Rick Hahn

    There really isn't much here, and I wouldn't expect Hahn to say much at this point. If things don't turn around, it will be harder to soft peddle stuff.
  3. I will settle for a well-played game, win or lose. It would be nice to see no errors, no dumb baserunning, and some timely hitting. It would also be nice to see no strange decisions coming out of the dugout. Let's take some baby steps here and have the team get out of the mindset it is in.

    JR doesn't like firing people, and he still felt bad the 1986 sacking of LaRussa. That is also why the Guillen departure in 2011 turned into a side show, and why he couldn't pull the trigger on Ventura. We can only hope things will improve as injured players return. But as much as I didn't like the LaRussa hiring, he can't be blamed for everything. Perhaps. we will have to face up to the fact that this team isn't as good as we thought. We have 140 games to find out.

    In a way, we really don't know who would have done a better job, because the organization didn't bother to do a real search. Maybe they should try interviewing a few candidates next time. Maybe that would be the first time the organization would do that.

    The fact remains LaRussa was not popular when he was in Chicago during his first tenure. He got a great deal of sympathy with the clownish way his firing was handled. I really don't think that JR wanted Hawk to fire LaRussa. That is where his guilt comes in. After all, Hawk was hired as GM with the condition that LaRussa would stay on as manager. All of this is not a reason that LaRussa should have been hired the second time around. Now LaRussa does have a challenge in turning this team around. We will see what he does with it.

    What some fans should understand is that LaRussa wasn't hired for his "hall of fame credentials." He was hired because he's a friend of the CEO and that CEO had a weird reason for hiring him. I don't see LaRussa quitting. And JR will only dig his heels in more as we fans call fora new manager. We can only hope that the hitting picks up, and things will otherwise improve as injured players return. But LaRussa is here to stay unless he gets fed up and leaves on his own.

    Hendriks tipping his pitches?

    I don't know if Hendricks is tipping his pitches, but his fast ball doesn't look that overpowering and he has little command of his breaking pitches. I don't know why he was pitching in the 10th today. In the ninth, he gave up two hits and was lucky he didn't give up a third and lose the game right there. If Hendricks is the closer, this team is in bigger trouble than we already think.

    If Jerry would hire anyone right now, it would be Ozzie. It is a matter of personal comfort. JR will not bring in someone from outside the organization if he would bring on anyone at all. Normally, I wiuld say no to Ozzie but these are not ordinary times.

    Sox @ Twins

    Get ready to be shocked, because the Sox will not win the division if LaRussa remains at the helm. BTW, the team really doesn't have a closer right now.

    I don't want to hear the BS it's too early. It's not too early. Something dramatic has to be done or this team is going south and staying there. I can't believe I am saying this again but put Ozzie in there. And tell him to get rid of the coaching staff while he's at it.

    They tried to give the game away in the eighth. If the Twins get that bunt down, it never goes into extras. They were lucky to survive a walk and a two- base error.

    Hendricks has nothing. That pitch to Buxton was an absolute joke.

    I am no fan of Ozzie, but give him the damn job already. And find a real closer. At this rate, should have kept Kimbrel.
