    McDowell says White Sox/Larussa Cheated

    I would prefer to focus on baseball rather than beat this 30+ year old dead horse. This is Houston's problem....let's not make it ours.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    If we are building a team capable of winning Division, League and WS titles we need to be good enough to win against good teams. When we win the Central this year...we don't need to listen about how we didn't have to beat anyone. The season just got more interesting. Go Sox.

    And a very good bench it would be.

    We don't "have" to anoint anyone. Just making a prediction.

    Looks like I have some company in the optimism department.😊

    I don't see how pitch framing works?

    I would have agreed with you until we signed Grandal. Now framing gives us an edge.

    ****Some Observations including Sabermetrics

    Hawk would say todays players are bigger, stronger & faster. In your fathers and my day there were only 16 teams and you didn't get to the major leagues without knowing which base to throw to, etc. Fewer jobs meant you better show up and do your job or you wouldn't have one. Very hard to judge players across generational lines since equipment, rules, travel, money, training facilities and the Union have changed the game dramatically. I'll tell you one thing for sure...I would love to have Koufax pitching for the Sox in 2020. I have no doubt he could still get them out today.

    Steve Stone stays in White Sox booth

    Practically a baby.😀
  14. Leyland was the guy I wish we had in the organization for 30 years.
  15. Just an observation...when we got rid of Larussa I was delighted. I hated his slow micro managing ways. Apparently he got better with time.
