    Will you forgive JR/Hahn

    Depends on your perspective. Employees within the organization might’ve experienced how fans treated the organization and ask themselves: Will JR/Hahn forgive the fans? Personally, I’m all about inclusiveness on the bandwagon, so anyone and everyone is welcome. But I wasn’t the brunt of personal attacks like Jerry or Tony were, so I can’t judge whether they forgive after we win the WS.

    Hahn was on Phillies interview list

    This news confirms what some of us already knew: Hahn knows how good he has it here and has no interest in leaving the Jerry/Kenny/Ricky/Tony Mt Rushmore.

    Reinsdorf and Hahn: what happened?

    There’s no tension between Jerry, Kenny, Ricky, & Tony. I’ll put the Sox’ Mt Rushmore of Jerry, Kenny, Ricky, & Tony up against anyone’s. Hahn loves the hiring of LaRussa because Tony’s about to put a ring on his finger.

    Len Kasper is new White Sox radio play by play announcer

    Kasper was always real high on Tony LaRussa. I think once the Sox hired TLR, Kasper was coming and it just took a few weeks for lawyers to hammer out negotiations.

    2021 Ticket Prices Increasing?

    Reselling our lower 140s seats ranged from $10-70 depending on opponent/day. Probably $20 avg on weeknights and $40 avg on weekends. Basically, how much you make back depends on selling Cubs/Yankees/Red Sox tix and going to the rest. Reselling the parking pass helps too — I’ve made $5 for bad opponents and $30+ for premium opponents. Stubhub takes 20% but it’s the most reliable for getting takers. Personally, I hate Cubs/Yankees/Red Sox games because of traffic/parking. Those go on Stubhub everytime. I’ll only go to soldout games if it’s a special occasion, final week of a playoff race, or the playoffs.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    An early XMas gift arrived at the doorstep today — my first jersey since 2008. So euphoric for next season and wearing this at all the games next summer!

    Judge Tony LaRussa by results, not process

    This was a great baseball hire. Unfortunately for twitter, only 2% of the population is active on it. They’re a zit on an elephant’s ass with a loud echo chamber inside.

    2021 Hall of Fame Ballot

    Honestly, no one. The ones I think had HOF careers were all roiders. My rooting interests are: 1) Buehrle (obviously) 2) Andruw Jones (really liked him the year he was here) 3) LaTroy Hawkins (treated horribly by Cubs fans...gets the last laugh just by making it to the ballot)

    Jerry Reinsdorf - time to go? Yay or Nay!

    Stay. He might have only 1 championship, but a 2nd is arriving shortly. He’s fostered a personable, family-like environment where everyone knows everyone top-to-bottom. Former players enjoy it so much they return often. His biggest mistake was 35 years ago, but he‘s humble enough to correct it 35 years later when most billionaires would never admit a mistake. His relationship skills are second to none. I envy his and Tony’s friendship and it’s my goal to build a friendship that special one day. The fairytale ending of a lifetime is coming in an October or two, and will be a huge storyline when Ken Burns films his 2020s documentary.
  10. 100%. And now fans are storming Stone’s twitter intentionally misrepresenting what he’s saying, calling him names, telling him he’s the problem, and intimating he’s backing LaRussa because he’s white. Good on him for blocking people. Stone has been gracious in going above and beyond to interact with fans and fans have returned that favor by treating him poorly.
  11. I agree with Marcus. How can the officer not know who Tony LaRussa is?
  12. One potential issue is if Toronto is our ALCS opponent. If we clinch the pennant in Toronto -- maybe the William Harridge Trophy could be presented to LaRussa watching the game in an American hotel? Reinsdorf will probably watch the clincher with Tony so he doesn't feel left out. I'd imagine Jerry and Tony would stay in Niagara Falls so Jerry could drive over to Toronto with the Harridge Trophy after it's presented to LaRussa.

    Poll: Rate How You Feel About TLR

    I admire Jerry and Kenny’s restraint not to release a tweet telling the fans to knock it off - it would’ve been well justified. We’ll have an absolute ball with TLR the next few years. And if it takes others a longer curve to enjoy what’s to come - that’s ok too - we’ll gladly welcome them aboard this magic carpet ride with open arms.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Watching the Bachelorette these past 2 weeks was such an embodiment of the LaRussa dynamics. You have a decision-maker (Jerry/Clare Crawley) identifying a candidate with all the credentials they can dream of (Tony LaRussa/Dale). You had all the other bachelors seeing the writing on the wall and using the stand-up comedy routine for launching hundreds of cheap insults at Dale to justify their hatred (ie. fans/twitter stooping to hundreds of character assassinations of Tony). And finally you had the culmination of Clare Crawley getting engaged to Dale (Jerry hiring Tony). There’s a reason Dale was the quickest winner in Bachelor history and Tony has 3 world titles and 6 pennants to his name. It’s no coincidence both have endured a tsunami of grenades and couldn’t be less bothered.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Tony LaRussa could tweet “No one asked me but....as a color guy who got the heave-ho on the other side of town for dramatic relationships with players, I’d zip my lips before I complete the Renteria getting booted from both sides of town.” But TLR won’t tweet that because he’s busy saving animals, passing out Halloween candy, and voting in the election. There’s 5 months till Opening Day. They’ll be forming the genesis of lifelong friendships in 3 months. Let these people live — the first week after TLR’s hiring is Halloween/Election time.
