    I just want a guy who can catch the baseball in the outfield, and with Robert out, they are down to Engel who Tony won't play.

    Miguel Cabrera has a higher OPS (.648) than half of the White Sox.

    He needs to be playing everyday with Robert out.

    Michael is running the day to day and it took years after Jerry stepped down and complete embarrassment during the NBA ASG for them to finally pull the trigger.

    So Grandal passed ball here and a 1-0 Detroit victory?

    I'm just glad Detroit hasn't scored a run, otherwise Tony would never have put in Lopez (or Graveman or Liam) if down a single run.

    It would take Baseball IQ to identify said Baseball IQ, and this front office and clubhouse staff just don't have it in them.

    As bad as Hahn has been, spending $30M plus Heuer and Madrigal for two months of Kimbrel and two years of Pollock has to rank among the Top 10 of his worst moves as GM.

    Fire Tony Chant

    Tony only needs to go 8-42 this season to guarantee heading into 2023 above .500 during his White Sox managerial career, Tony finished above .500 in five of his ten White Sox seasons.

    7 pitches, 3 outs. F Tony, F Hahn, F Jackie (Martling)

    Also, the more you play Pollock, the higher his guaranteed player option is for next season based on his incentives. Would absolutely like seeing him play only when Robert and Eloy can't play OF.

    Engel has the same OPS + as Pollock (79), but unlike Pollock (or Sheets, or Vaughn) can actually play RF. Is he injured or hated by Tony, seeing he has started two games since July 26? Engel isn't great by any means, but he is a good fielder and the drop-off in hitting isn't that large. He definitely should be starting more than 1 time a week with the horseshit RF options the White Sox have this season.

    Fire Rick Hahn

    I don't see a high probability of Jerry. Hahn or Tony leaving after this season, setting aside a health issue or death. Jerry still views this as a very successful season, regardless of what the team does. Team remains profitable even with this large payroll, just less so than expected if they drew well. They are now making money off of their Caesars Sportsbook partnership, and will soon have his own sportsbook at Comiskey Park II. The Sox have received a large increase in national television revenue. Tony La Russa is alive and managing, and will continue to do so as long as Jerry is alive, and perhaps further depending on his will.

    Injuries - They need to be fired

    Live these graphs! Do you know if “Lost WAR” is based on projected WAR, actual 2022 WAR earned or a blended rate? If projected WAR is used, than someone like Crochet would be factored in. If based on a pro-rata share of actual earned 2022 WAR, than it represents the fact that the bulk of the playing time lost were for guys who have sucked while playing this season. Atlanta, San Diego, San Francisco and the Cubs lost little to nothing of significance regardless of method. Sox look to have lost slightly below average based on their bubble size. If Sox senior management read HR policy, than perhaps their organizations wouldn’t be facing these lawsuits.
