    LH Bat Trade Options

    Josh Bell? Yeah another corner guy but he’d give you some pop from the left side at least and is a FA after this year

    Fire Tony Chant

    I’m all for regime change but do we really trust Jerry to bring in the right people to fix this? I’m getting very GarPaxy vibes from Hahn and co. Just not having a clue on how to build a real contender, not being able to keep guys healthy, not investing in scouting, player development, making lazy moves that don’t move the needle and there’s a common denominator at both organizations: Jerry He’s a great businessman but is way too damn loyal to those below him which is great for them but creates mediocre results because those in charge become unimaginative. I know it’s cliche but I feel like until Jerry is gone this will never get better, it’s sad af too because all of us invest so much time, energy, and money into this organization just to be given the middle finger back by them cutting so many corners in the way they do baseball business.

    TLR 2022 Thread

    Either Hahn doesn’t have the balls to tell Tony and Jerry it’s a dumb idea to sign BOTH Harrison and Leury or he’s an idiot for thinking it could work. Either way Hahn deserves a lot of this season’s blame along with Tony for not being able to lift this team put from the gutter. There’s just WAY too many players struggling to say it’s solely on the players
  4. The expectations were much higher this season though, 2016 at least Rick had a plan going forward. If they fail to make the playoffs, I would lose all hope in Rick to be able to fix this let alone with an owner who would rather an 80 year old drunk be in charge of the team. Again 2016 sucked but the writing was on the wall for Robin, I see no light at the end of the tunnel with Tony. They need a change at manager but Jerry will in no way allow it.

    How Concerned Should We Be?

    Most likely, it really feels like there’s a black cloud over this team and front office and they don’t have the right people in place to help get them out from under it

    How Concerned Should We Be?

    This was about as terrible a start possible for this team as you could ask for. Mainly because Abreu, TA, Robert, Grandal, and Vaughn all should be able to carry this lineup and none have been capable of doing it. Harrison and Leury have been wastes of $$ and roster spots. I don’t expect Yoan being here to turn their fortunes around because this team will only go as far as TA and Robert will take them. And I’m really sad to say it but I wouldn’t be surprised if Rick Hahn gives Eloy the Nick Madrigal treatment at the deadline if they’re still in it at that time, hell even if they’re not.

    Retooling / quasi-rebuild

    Even if this was actually a possibility, I don’t trust Rick Hahn or the major league scouting department to get the right pieces here

    A's interested in Andrew Vaughn/Sox in Montas

    They really need Sheets bat though, I know he’s not some superstar hitter but the power potential from the left side is very useful for this team

    A's interested in Andrew Vaughn/Sox in Montas

    Losing Colson would hurt but not nearly as bad as Rick Hahn not doing everything he possibly can to win a World Series during this window. Think they really need a guy who can throw strikes consistently and Montas does that and his stuff is good on top of that

    Manaea to Padres, Sox were in on him

    Hopefully the Sox keep loading up on high schoolers in the upcoming draft and sign younger talent during IFA.
  11. This was my exact same thought, Rick Hahn loves making the same mistakes over again though so add this to the list of things that won’t work out.

    Offseason Part 3 - Because Part 2 Was a Dud

    Think that their thoughts on the fan base won’t ever change until Jerry is no longer the owner and Hahn/KW are gone. Rick Hahn is still the same dude who publicly called out fans for calling the organization out for their lack of spending. He doesn’t seem to take criticisms from fans.

    Offseason Part 3 - Because Part 2 Was a Dud

    I still have trouble wrapping my head around how we’re all clamoring for a guy just because he plays RF and bats lefty but is still coming off a 0.8 WAR season to be the answer. Maybe it was both him and Boras who messed this up but his market has been so quiet that it has me thinking that most teams feel he’s just not going to be as productive as his 2017-2019 stats. I just have a bad feeling that when/if he does sign here for however much $$ we’re going to end up being disappointed in what he brings to the team, I hope I’m wrong of course

    Offseason Part 3 - Because Part 2 Was a Dud

    I really wish the White Sox had some more out of the box thinkers in their front office. Like how did the Red Sox come to the conclusion that they would make Trevor Story work at 2B? I’m sure lack of a market didn’t help Story and having an owner willing to go above and beyond helps but nothing this FO does has shown they can be creative.

    Kyrie Tucker, Alvarez, Bregman, and Altuve might be better hitters than anybody on the Sox…
