    40-Man Roster
  1. I loathed Reinsdorf passionately but my love for CWS transcends ownership. I was a Sox fan before Reinsdorf and will be one after.
  2. Reinsdorf's checkbook should be open wide but not to Hahn. And no owner in his mind right mind would make Hahn head of baseball operations. Before summoning security they would say FTJR for Shields. Like it or not that is his legacy.
  3. Kopech and Crochet are not relievers. They are starters. I'm not sure Kopech would have fared any better. He needs to add some more pitches. They were teeing off on his fast balls. But that's mentality of senior management...homers and strikeouts...all or nothing all. And they got nothing.
  4. And neither did much on the big stage.

    Reinsdorf's pockets aren't deep enough for St. Theo. CWS will be under new, far more affluent ownership before they are able to attract those kinds of executives. I see the Cubs made a play for Tampa Bay"s player personnel VP and came up short. But who wants that reclamation project? The Cubs biggest problem is ironically their cash cow - Wrigley Field. CWS can set the world on fire with the right ownership. There would be some deep pocket suitors. But Reinsdorf's inflated ego would never give his legion of detractors the satisfaction of watching him turn over the keys to the kingdom. Oh the editorials and post-mortems.. The chants of "Bye Felicia" and "Good Riddance" would be heard globally. His ego destroyed the Bulls. And it clearly got in the way this year as it has over the past 40 years.

    Not only something he's not but clearly did not want to be. I'm so tired of Reinsdorf senior managers who think they know more than anyone else who in reality don't know jack.

    The problem is they all need to go and no one in their right mind would want to inherit TLR and be bothered with an ownership group who historically leaves their better teams 2 or 3 players short. The Reinsdorf Group doesn't give a damn about championships unless they are coincidental with achieving their bottom line goal$. Reliance on Hero Ball 3 run homers and Strikeout Kings is not the recipe for success in the post-season. I thought the fanbase was outstanding. They deserved better.

    The only CWS untouchables are Robert and Sheets. Sheets came to play

    The Sox surprised me Sunday tonight. I really thought they were done. The fan support was outstanding. The base really got into Altuve's head calling him a cheater all night long. I like the Sox chances with Rodon to force a game 5. If the Sox pull this out they will look to Dusty's decision to switch pitchers midstream resulting in Leury's game (and maybe series) changing homer.
  11. Hinch wasting away in Detroit. Reinsdorf screwed up BIGLY
  12. Bring me whoever runs Tampa Bay
  13. And that's exactly the problem. This team is built on the almighty homer and throwing through a brick wall. The Sox need a more robust, multi-dimensional offense. Hahn has the same problem as Pace: neither has a clue how to get that done. And even if Hahn knew how, his ownership wouldn't pay for it. Keep the base thirsty says P.T. Reinsdorf.
  14. Next season Kopech and Crochet will be starting the playoffs.
