    Madrigal Wins Gold Glove

    How things have changed. The #9 spot was usually reserved for your worst hitter. (That's still the case in the NL with the pitcher batting).

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    It would be great if for once the White Sox were owned by a biilionaire whose sole purpose in purchasing the team is to build the best team that he possibly can. Someone like a Mark Cuban. We, as fans, don't need someone sitting on a stool wearing a visor and making entries in his ledger to make sure that the shareowners are getting maximum return on their investment.

    Braves and Dodgers Out

    They hung their hat on the fact that Soroka led MLB in road ERA (about 1.75). Also Foltynewicz recovered his magic at the end of the season and pitched liked he did last year.

    Braves and Dodgers Out

    The 2 best teams in the NL are out of the post-season without even making it past the division series. Another in a long series of examples that the post-season is basically a crap shoot. I bring this up only for the folks out there who expect the White Sox to make multiple WS appearances after this rebuild is complete. What should we expect? The highly optimistic expectation: yearly post-season appearances for the next few years. The realistic expectation: compete for a post-season appearance for the next few years.

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    What a ridiculously over the top comment. To compare a lifelong loyalty towards a baseball team to a drug or alcohol addiction is beyond belief. The Sox ARE a part of my life, but a small part compared to other more important things. If you want to associate something to an addiction, how about some on this board who waste countless hours speculating on topics like proposed trades, free agent signings, and other meaningless threads.

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    It's not that simple. I've been a Sox fan since I moved to Chicago as a 10-year old. After 30 years in the area, I have moved several times for business reasons. Each time to a city that had major sports teams. Not one time did I become a fan of the team(s) in those cities. I have remained a fan of the Chicago teams (except the Cubs, of course). It was easier for me to go through a divorce than it would be for me to stop being a Sox fan. There is nothing "voluntary" about it. It's a part of my life.

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    As someone mentioned, this is a stupid topic for a thread (off-season or not). Yet Jack has gotten 10 pages of responses in 2 days. Who is the insane one? Is it not us?

    Predict the 1st Free Agent Signed

    I agree. If that is the case, can the Sox compete for a post-season spot with 1.) the returning core, 2.) the addition of Robert and Madrigal, 3.) the return of "TJ Surgery Guys", and 4.) the addition of only mediocre free agents? Assuming it takes 92-95 wins to snag a spot, I don't think so.
  9. Exhibit A of a player the Sox drafted, couldn't develop, gave up on, and basically gave him away in a horrid trade.
  10. Amazing that an idiot that constantly waved runners to their demise at home plate keeps his job.

    17 games under .500 this season is a hell of an improvement over the 38 games under .500 last year. Also, it sounds a lot better when your win total is in the 70's and the losses are in the 80's; it sounds like you're getting close to .500.

    Hahn SOTU

    Yep. Talks a good game. Can he deliver on any of it? Reminds me of a slick-talking recently former President.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Absolutely right. If you go under the assumption than every free agent will sign with the highest bidder (not unreasonable), the chances that the Sox get the 7 or 8 players they need (2 SP, 3 RP, C, DH, RF) are pretty remote. There will be too many teams competing with us, thereby driving up the price. A trade or 2 involving prospects may need to be made. P.S. I hope we learned our lesson with the Machado fiasco and quit the crap with incentives when other teams are offering guaranteed money.
