    Field of Dreams Tickets

    Those players were grossly unpaid by their cheap, polarizing owner. Nothing has changed. My poor White Sox have NEVER been blessed by great ownership.

    KW says "no Puig"

    Oh please. With the circus they've had in that clubhouse with players of a not too distant past?

    KW says "no Puig"

    Translation: (1) Puig isn't old enough yet. (2) Mazara is our 2020 Ellis Burke catch lightening in a bottle project. (3) Y'all asking too much from an owner who's mission is to keep the base perineally thirsty. I swear if the Sox and Bulls ever get taken over by affluent, dynamic ownership, it'll be among the most joyous events of my life.

    Big Mike will be just fine.

    Betts to Dodgers

    Yes. Can you imagine Mookie returning to Boston under these conditions ? No way this deal wasn't going down. This was just some GM gamesmanship between two elite organizations.

    I sure hope so. I want some attitude and flair on this team. Puig can absorbed some pressure. He's played for a winning organization.
  7. With their 11-1 record, the 2005 White Sox were one the best post-season teams in baseball history. They got absolutely no respect from the national media - and still don't. The Buck-McCarver calling of the 2005 World Series was one of the worst ever. Buck sure changed his demeanor for the Cubs lovable. Hope he enjoyed himself since it'll be another century before they get there again. The White Sox are putting together a very compelling team. They will not be hiding in the shadows much longer.

    Garpax vs KenHahn

    The common denominator is one Jerry Reinsdorf. If his august management teams weren't doing his bidding, they wouldn't occupy their respective positions. If it comes down to wishing for new ownership, your team is in dire straits (Sox, Bulls, Bears). Reinsdorf has the biggest ego in either of his sports organization. His reaction to criticism is to double-down. He will not give his detractors (and lordy there are many) the satisfaction of watching him hand over the keys to new owners. Ain't happening. So as long as that's the case GarPax and Kenny-Hahn are likely here to stay. Gar-Hahn at best might get thrown under the bus eventually. I could actually see Steve Stone in the front office of Sox at some point. I wouldn't care for it, but that would be a very Reinsdorfian move. Getting rid of Kenny-Pax would be too much of an admission of failure although it's apparent to everyone except Reinsdorf they have overstayed. The type of elite front office decision makers and on-field difference makers these organizations desperate need wouldn''t be bothered with Reinsdorf and I don't blame them.

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    Big Daddy referring to Luis as the "next Mike Trout" is noteworthy given his own immense talent (albeit more offense-orientated). Here's hoping there's affluent sportsmen in the owner's suite to keep him playing here on the South Side of Chicago and not on a coast (or even worse - at Clark and Addison).

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    Yuck. To be bothered with him for 19 games?

    I'm not giving up Madrigal and Vaughn.

    My heart bleeds for them. Aren't they supposed to working on a 5-peat at this juncture ? They're fortunate they beat Cleveland.

    Kudos to Jack for bringing this out. Harry and Jimmy are smiling somewhere in the great beyond.
