    FS: What's Driving Mercedes' Power?

    He just turned 27.
  2. Hey all, looking to take my two boys to the Smackdown show next month on March 27th at Allstate Arena. Any suggestion on where the best price for tickets is? Stubhub? And where are the best places to sit there? Obviously not ringside because the prices are ridiculous but maybe the next closest upper level or two?

    White Sox Spring Training Thread

    I agree with you. McCann has a lot more value to another team that would start him as opposed to the Sox. And I would be very interested to see what long-term piece the Sox could acquire for him.

    Trading McCann is a calculated risk. You are basically hoping that Grandal doesn’t get injured long-term this season. But it’s a risk I’d be willing to take, especially if McCann can bring back a good long-term piece. You still have Collins and Yermin and could always acquire a defense-first catcher.

    MLB Final Roster Options out of Spring Training

    Agreed. Just look at him jogging the bases after his two homers this spring. The earth is trembling due to his mass. And he doesn’t simply look fat. He just looks gigantic and beefy. He’s a DH first guy.

    But Tapia has four years of control left and is young enough to still break out. That is worth more than one year of McCann at $5.4 million, especially in the limited role he will serve for the Sox in this one season.

    26th Man Discussion

    Edwin could do either at his age and shape. I like keeping Yermin around for that possibility.

    Trade McCann and keep Collins and Yermin on the roster.

    Reinsdorf makes money off Cubs network

    Crane Kenney literally mentioned JR’s name in relation to ownership of Stadium.

    Ultimately, is Dodgers viewership or sales down because a major cable provider doesn’t carry Dodgers games? They are still making money hand over fist via Spectrum. If Comcast signs on for Marquee, which they probably will eventually, all of this will be forgotten.

    WOW! just added Marquee yesterday.

    Reinsdorf makes money off Cubs network

    It was basically a bad news channel that mostly showed the Chicago weather and an occasional Cubs game but you would always have trouble finding it or knowing when a game was even on CLTV.

    CTV? Wasn’t it CLTV? Or maybe I’m wrong?

    It was an interesting tidbit of news from The Score that probably neither you nor many other people knew before Crane Kenney said it this morning. I figured I would share this news. 🤷‍♂️

    Where in my post did I infer that? Hopefully the money gets funneled back to the Sox.
  18. I think I agree with this. Even though they were losing, you knew they at least had a plan. The previous plan was simply treading water by signing a bunch of retread vets and hoping they all somehow have a magical season.
  19. It’s just an example of a team that did much better than the Sox with Kenny and Hahn at the helm, with even less spending. I don’t see how anyone could say Kenny and Hahn did anything other than a piss poor job in the last ten or so years pre-rebuild.
  20. Even if you point to a change in their philosophy, the Kenny/Hahn regime still blew the implementation of their previous philosophy with poor scouting and development, numerous bad draft picks, awful free agent signings, and over-the-hill veteran acquisitions. Unless your argument is either that no team could win with their old philosophy or that they were intentionally trying to lose? Because Tampa Bay managed to do pretty well with a minuscule payroll.
  21. Looks like Hahn may have started a trend.

    I guess if one or two videos isn’t enough support, there is probably plenty more where that came from.
  23. Probably due to their shift or change in strategy. Maybe identifying top prospects to acquire is more obvious and easier than signing mediocre veterans and hoping they are productive? Why was Theo Epstein good at developing offensive prospects and smaller acquisitions and trades but awful at developing pitching and making larger trades and acquisitions for high-priced players? Some GMs are good in certain areas and awful in others. For the most part, Hahn has been great at working team-friendly contracts but awful at free agency in most years.
