    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    I just want a manager who doesn't need tp LEARN ON THE JOB. Someone who's won a WS and has a winning record. Cora? Hitch? La Russa? don't really care. If we can raise another WS Banner in the next few years is really the only thing that matters.

    Sox should replace Renteria with Ozzie Guillen

    As long as KW is around he will overrule RH on hiring Ozzie, He will not manage. Should RR be fired?? Of course, but who's available? Only Ozzie?? I doubt it. If there isn't a suitable replacement that is affordable, JR will stick with RR for one more year. He's not going to pay 2 managers. RR F***ed game 3 by pulling Dunning in the 1st inning. Maybe he would of got out of it, maybe not. It was worth 1 more batter to see if he could, probably. Cease and Dunning could develop in Number 5's, but need at least a half season in the minors i believe. Rodon may be done or become a bullpen guy, released or traded. Would he take a stint in the minors to start the season to work things out?? I don't know. Kopech also may need a month or 2 in the minors if he doesn't perform well in Spring Training as Crochet may need time in minors to get stretched out. We need a REAL # 3 behind Gio and Dallas 1st. RR is Doug Collins and will get switched out fired when we find our Phil Jackson.

    Offseason Targets

    adding by subtraction!!!! Get rid of Encarnacion, Mazara, Gonzalez and Lopez. Opening up spots for Kopech and Vaughn. We can live with this lineup with Engel in right unless the right FA is affordable. Try to keep McCann, although that may tough and could sideline Vaughn. Cease and Dunning may be long relief help and try and stretch out Crochet. Dallas, Gio, Kopech and Crochet and pray for rain!!!!

    Fire Ricky

    He doesn't have the balls to hold a media event after screwing up at the trade deadline and his brilliant moves with Encarnacion, Mazara, Gio Gonzalez. He wouldn't want answer those questions.

    Fire Ricky

    Sox too cheap to pay off his contract. We just have to hope he's not as stupid as he was going down the stretch and th playoffs. We need to make sure that Encarnacion and Mazara are gone and we either live with Engel in right field or get another right fielder either full time of platoon with Engel. If we get a 3rd Starter to go with Dallas and Lucas. I know we have Kopech ( maybe if his head is on straight) and Dunning and Cease, but we a serious contender?? Rodon i think is done as a starter, hopefully I'm wrong, he's too young. Crochet as a 4th or 5th starter?? Stretching him out if we have a normal spring training will tell.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    I don't think we have the wrong Rick, but both Ricks need to be fired. Renteria SUCKS, HAHN SUCKS. Remember Hahn had to have David Rice and the PRICE was Tatis. Yes, we went into this series with only 2 legit starters because our head case Kopech decided tp opt out. I still believe it wasn't Covid but his ex-wife messed his head up also and with Covid and his divorce he couldn't get head on straight. HAHN did absolutely nothing at the trade deadline. In his eyes it seemed it was Clevenger or nothing. Renteria choked in the 1st inning and should have given Dunning 1 more batter and if he got him he should of pitched the second. Did i miss something. is Lopez hurt or not on this roster for the playoffs. As i've said in a previous post, the Cubs fired him for a reason. HE SUCKS!!!! Also as i've said, we need to hire a real manager, sign Bauer no matter what he wants, stretch out Crochet and see if Kopech has his head on straight. I'm not sure who else is out there. Can Rondon be 80% of what he was?? Doubt it, but miracles do happen.LOL. Offensively we are solid for next year, bullpen, very good, Starting pitching is the BIG question after Dallas and Lucas. Can Cease and Dunning develop?? Maybe, but they may need a full and at least a half a year in AA. The offense is too good to waste and we can't weight. looking for miracle to pull this one out. I'm writing during the bottom of the 7th woth 2 on and 2 out.
  7. We need to pay McCann and keep him on the team at all costs. He signed a 1 year deal for about 5.4 million and Hahn was stupid not put in a second year option with a buyout, are we really surprised he'd make a mistake like that???? He's Giolito's personal catcher. Yasmani will be the old Yasmani next year. We'll save some money when Encarnacion's 13 million off the books. Colome' will probably be gone, that's 10 million , Gio Gonzalez 5 million is gone. That's is 28 million. 2 years 15 million would be fair with a 3rd year option and buyout. he and Yasmani can switch off as DH's and when they both play Yasmani can play 1st and Abreu can DH for some rest. We have all the young stars signed to team friendly contracts. they bullpen is young and cheap with tremendous potential. We still need another stud starter and the money is there, Hahn has to step up and make this happen, we also have Vaughn waiting in the wings.

    Need McCann and Grandal next year.

    Nice job asshole, calling a new member a complete moran. personal blog??? We all have opinions. I start a conversation, correct?? You have the option to give an opinion or ignore it. Not name call. I've been active for about week, started 3 conversions and YOU are the only one to insult me.

    Wasted Money This Year

    I would like a refund on Encarnacion, Gio Gonzales and Mazara. a waste of about 17m that could have been spent on a pitcher the like of Mehta or someone of that stature. And whatever we're paying Renteria is also TOO MUCH. We need to invest in a REAL MANAGER, another quality starter to go with Giolitto and Keuchel. Lopez obviously is not the answer, who knows if Rodon will ever return to his old form. Cease and Dunning?? Not sure if they have what it takes and if by some miracle, Kopech can play MAYBE that's the answer at the 3 or 4 slot. We don't know the plans for Crochet yet. I don't know who's on the market during the winter. If anyone knows please post it. Saving grace is the Parrot Head is here this year and gone. Don't know about Gio G's contract, but gut him loose. Cease and Dunning needed a this year in the minors, but it is what it is. They may develop next year. With this offensive, 1 more stud starter and we will win the Central easily next year. It might by Kopech, it might not be. Maybe Cease/Dunning combine as a 5th starter throwing 4 innings each. LOL, only kidding!!!! We need as i've said in another post, RESIGN MCCANN!!!!! he and Yasmani can trade off catching and DH.
  10. Don't get me wrong or storm the gates, i'm not saying he should not hit # 9. He's too good a contact hitter. but think of the possibilities of hitting with Anderson at # 2 protecting him and Anderson getting Abreu protection!!! Just bored watching this beat down.
  11. AJ'S Cousin

    Need McCann and Grandal next year.

    I rest my case for the need to keep McCann. He's Giolito's guy. Giolitti's wins at least 20 next year with this lineup and bullpen. Yasmani as a DH and McCann catches and we are set 1 through 9. Imagine if Kopech is real and we make a deal or sign someone and get a real Manager!!!! These are the 1984 Bears. With a little luck they be the 1985 Bears but probably next year. That was what the experts predicted anyway. Can we get to the final 4?? Probably. Keuchel Tomorrow and it seems like there no jitters. We did this without Jimenez. I pity the team that starts a lefty against the Sox for the next 2 or 3 years. I Told everyone that we could live with Engel Right and no Encarnacion's abysmal batting average. Yasmani as DH and McCann catching and we'll win this series!!!! With the money coming off the books next year we can afford to pay McCann and keep him happy.

    Need McCann and Grandal next year.

    I meant i have no followers yet !!! LOL

    Need McCann and Grandal next year.

    yeah, but i still have followers!!! LOL
  14. AJ'S Cousin

    Need McCann and Grandal next year.

    yes he wants to be a starter, But he'd still be a full time player with 60 to 70 games behind the plate and 60 to 70 games at DH. he'll be in 140 to 150 games. his career and Yasmani's will be extended greatly not having the wear and tear to catch 140 to 150 games. maybe 3 years 25 gets it done with incentives to make another 2 or 3 million a year. He may also have an Abreu attitude and want to be here the next couple of years when this thing peaks. Just hoping, been waiting for another 2005 and hopefully it wouldn't be a 1 and done.

    White Sox/A's-- Pre-series Discussion

    We have a shot, I'd say because of are 2 studs. Gio and Dallas could win both. if we split, we might be done. Dunning, Cease, and Lopez i don't think could win game 3. I hope to God i'm wrong if we lose game 1 or 2. The other question is can these kids handle the pressure?? THE BIGGEST ADVANTAGE WE HAVE FOR THE KIDS IS NOBODY IN THE STANDS. anything can happen in a best of 3 and we have the starters and the offense to do it if our kids can handle the pressure.

    White Sox/A's-- Pre-series Discussion

    both games are 2pm central on ESPN.

    Crochet

    Starter or reliever?? Great start but 3 innings in college and 1 inning in majors does not make a career. 101 fastball? Great!! But very little movement. Good hitters can catchup to 101. Pluses we have is is a GREAT PITCHING COACH. very good catchers that can call a great game and pitch framing He can be a great one but let’s not rush him. We brought Giolito along properly, Bummer etc is he a starter or reliever. That needs to be determined Bummers return in his old form is key to getting to the WS. Huer looks great!! Foster looks like a stud. Jace is coming along. We have the potential to have a really great shut down bullpen.

    Wasted Money This Year

    Also, looking opinions for my next topic that will coming up. Madrigal, should he stay #9, move up to #2 or even lead off with Anderson at # 2. Think about it, Madrigal get's Anderson protection, Anderson get's Abreu Protection.

    Wasted Money This Year

    Anybody know what top line pitchers may a free agent that would be worth Keuchel type money, thats what we need!!!!

    Wasted Money This Year

    i could live with Engel if we get a stud pitcher and a real manager!!!!
  21. AJ'S Cousin

    Wasted Money This Year

    touche', but he's gone!!! and yes he also was a HUGE waste. Add it up. 13m for Encarnacion, 6m for Cishek, 5m for Gio G. 4 or 5 m for Mazara. close to 30 million. We could signed a quality pitcher. We don't need to acquire any offense for next year. Even our bench is above average.
  22. AJ'S Cousin

    Crochet

    I also am done with the Crotchet responses, we all know he has Chris Sale POTENTIAL. Starter or reliever next year?? Let the powers that be make that decision. We can possibly build a great bullpen for 2021 whether he's a Starter or Reliever/Closer. Huer, Foster, Bummer, Marshall, Fry!!! And that's if Crotchet is a starter, not to mention Colome if they decide to resign him( which i doubt). Who's to say that they don't add Cease or Dunning to the bullpen for next year?? You never know what they may do. Is Kopech going to the bullpen early next year to start season because he took the year off and still recovering from TJ Surgery? Will still only have 2 legit Starters for 2021, Giolito and Keuchel, Lopez and Kopech don't count yet and i believe Rodon may be done or ALSO going to the bullpen!! LOL. That's all i have to say right now until a new topic comes up.
  23. AJ'S Cousin

    Crochet

    Watching Crotchet toss 2 innings tonight with a devastating slider to go along with his amazing 100 mph fastball. he did great. If they don't stretch him next year to try and make him a starter, he'll definitely be in line to pitch the 8th inning and eventually close. Bummer could be the closer next year if they don't pick up Colome's option. Really building a low cost GREAT bullpen with these young guys.
  24. AJ'S Cousin

    Fire Ricky

    Agree, need a REAL MANGER!!! Ricky is a fugazi manager for you Donni Brasco fans, you know what i mean. Reinsdorf spends 24 million on Donovan for the BULLS AND 24,000 for Renteria. We need Jerry to step up. Remember, he fired Doug Collins and brought in Phil Jackson. We need a REAL Manager.
  25. AJ'S Cousin

    Crochet

    Ok, i'm getting slammed a bit for the " Great Pitching Coach Remark". Ok, maybe not great but still good. But now it seems the problem is Renteria!!!! It looks like the Cubs were right when they let him go for Maddon. The Sox i believe took him for 2 reasons--- He was cheap and they thought he'd relate to the heavy Latin Roster. We always seem to be pennywise and dollar foolish. Encarnacion seems to waste, could have rotated rotated McCann and Grandl as DH'S and Mazara looks like a waste both offensively and defensively. Much better of with Engel in right full time. Gio was a waste of money along with Cisek. we could have signed Mehta with the Cisek, Encarnacion, Gonzales and Mazara money. Getting sick watching tonight's game with the Cubs, 7-0 in the 6th. Renteria has to go, bring back Ozzie!!!! LOL. We need a proven winner to manage a team that could be better than the 2005 team. Not sure who's out there. Reinsdorf just spent 24 million plus for Donovan to coach the Bulls and we get a bargain basement manager. We were supposed to better this year but not win it. Next year was supposed to our year and it looks like this may be the case. Crotchet, Bummer, Foster,Huer and Marshall have the stuff to be a shut down bullpen and a closer could emerge from this group if Colome is gone (which i believe he's gone. Cease, Dunning have great potential, but potential get's you fired. Need another top flight starter to go with Kuechel and Giolito. Rodon may be done. we'll have money, Colome, Encarnacion off the books will help. Must KEEP McCann to have the best catching duo in baseball, REMEMBER, McCann is Giolito's caddy, we need him!!! Notice, i haven't said a word about the offense. No need to, it's set for the next 3 or 4 years. thanks for listening and welcoming to the gang.
