    White Sox vs Guardians GT 4/21/22

    Same here...I just can't understand this at all!

    Score the Offseason!

    Yep...although it is hard to positively "grade" paths that aren't taken but this post is spot on!

    RIP Roland Hemond

    Larry Himes/Jeff Torborg era is among my favorite White Sox eras...just a fun time once Himes got it going in the right direction! Torborg was the perfect manager for that era! Wish both would have stuck around longer than they were allowed to!

    MiLB Rule 5 on Wed

    Is the 26 man roster something that is being proposed? When did it go to 25? 1990? I remember thinking "wow, 25 men is a lot to have on a roster"! LOL!

    MiLB Rule 5 on Wed

    I agree with this sentiment...it seems like we have been hearing about him forever...waiting on this big-time prospect...and here we are still waiting!

    RIP LaMarr Hoyt

    That guy could pitch! Had trouble with those personal demons but wow could he pitch! Crazy that he was involved in trades (both coming to the White Sox and leaving) that involved some legendary White Sox names! RIP!

    MLB 2021-2 off season thread

    Sad...just watched the 1992 A-S game this weekend and he pitched in it. I think Robin might have hit off him...either way they said he had a tough 1991, signed a minor league deal for the Astros that winter and made the All-Star game. Sad to hear this.

    Old Sox Games on Youtube

    I enjoyed Fregosi but I was a kid...I loved his successor! Torborg might be my second favorite White Sox manager!

    "Old" White Sox Games on YouTube (05/15/88)

    Thanks for pointing me in this direction! I enjoy going back in time...

    "Old" White Sox Games on YouTube (05/15/88)

    Dang...just looked at the boxscore...wish the entire game was on YouTube...cuts off in the 7th inning when it was raining so I thought maybe that was it? Nope...there was some action that takes place after that point: https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CHA/CHA198805150.shtml

    "Old" White Sox Games on YouTube (05/15/88)

    I apologize if this should be in one of the other forums but wasn't sure...
  12. Anyone ever go back and watch any "old" White Sox games on YouTube? I have found myself diving into deep nostalgia and watching some games from Comiskey. Just brings up so many great memories (not necessarily the play or the teams...LOL), just fun to be able to see the Palace again and hear the voices I listened to and see the players that I cheered for growing up! Last night I watched this one which isn't an entire game (unless it was rain-shortened) but had some fun highlights and reminded me how great of an analyst Paciorek was!

    Sox give no qualifying offers

    Yeah...I get that if that scenario occurs then we will look foolish. However, there is a reason Boras is happy with not getting a QO...the QO would limit the teams that might have been willing to sign CO. What if his 3 year deal is worth $40 million? We will never know if he would have accepted a QO because one thing we can all agree upon is that you can't take Scott Boras at face-value! He is way too good at his job!

    Sox give no qualifying offers

    I know 2020 was an odd year and denied pitchers the opportunity to build arm-strength in game situations...but I just don't see how a team (well, any team other than the Dodgers...LOL) could risk a long-term deal on Rodon!

    Sox to talk about Semien with Boras

    Age is the only reason I could see Semien ending up with the White Sox...if he were still in his 20s the White Sox wouldn't even bother to schedule the meeting!
