    Today is Clinch Day… Date Yourself

    In 2008 I was 55 writing ISO 9000 (ser) packages and wondering why the Sox ever let Rowand go. As for dating --- my first game at Comiskey was along the infield third base line at a sparsely attended stadium in 1961 and seeing Maris hit one out to right center - I think it was off a recently acquired Ray Herbert. Maris hit 13 against the Sox that year.

    Trading equal quality pitching potential for equal quality hitting/fielding is 'usually' the wrong choice. Re: Occam's razor.

    Do the White Sox have new minority ownership?

    I would imagine the Einhorn inheritors (among others), have some idea of who owns what.

    Do the White Sox have new minority ownership?

    Yeah, I understand that. And have read that, at least at last report, that JR has directed the executor to outright sell the team upon his death. I was simply searching for a listing of ownership in ChiSox Co. As far as I can tell, JR has control even of the sale of shares i.e. there are no sell/buy back options without his approval. The owner of ChiCox shares can only seek JR's approval to move stock regardless of the size of that piece of the pie

    Searching White Sox ownership and corporate structure running Google and DuckDuckGo browsers doesn't reveal much insight at all. Forbes estimates JR's direct ownership at 19%, but there is little, if any, info on how much he controls (either directly or by proxy), the remaining 81%. No info on how the other 81% is distributed either.

    I scanned through this thread so fast that I missed your posting of this link and posted it separately. Sorry about that. Yeah, the rumor has been around for awhile.

    This has been rumored for several months now and *supposedly* there is a tie-in to Lucas' wife via an interest in Ariel Investments. Additionally, JR's two sons have been reported to be seeking an independent piece of the Sox pie. The latter has some credence as JR has addressed the point. The separate Lucas/Ariel tie-in is a rumor that has yet to be verified.

    9-19-21 White Sox Winner !! 7-2 over Texas

    For as many outstanding High School and College players as the state of texsa (sic) produces, Dallas, and even sometimes Houston exhibit exceptionally low baseball IQ re: MLB caliber play and the MLB stadium experience. "OK so this guy just hit one out of the park, so why is it only worth 4 points? In football that is worth 6. Is 4 some kind of big deal? Sometimes it isn't even worth 4 - I don't get it" .

    Vaughn's legs are bothering him

    So Vaughn, in his first season as a Pro Ball player, is having some problems with his get-away stix over the course of a 162 game season. Color me shocked.

    9/19 White Sox @ Rangers 1:35pm

    Fair enough. I vote that Eloy lays off a lot more first pitch stuff, breaking ball or otherwise, for awhile. Now if I could only find the ballot box... Maybe a video analysis session with Yas over a couple of hot dogs and 7Ups.

    Hey! J. Shields was a reasonable #4-5 starter, solid clubhouse presence, and worth every bit of $5-6 mil/year. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr wait..................................

    Pretty sure McNertney is pulling a garden variety troll.

    I don't see how this is an either/or case. Projections indicate that Baez will cost $15-20 mil/year (maybe more.) Just as a comparison - Profar or Taylor will get something like $10-12 mil/year. From a cost effectiveness angle alone the latter two are better options. Then the team chemistry side comes into play. Baez is a high profile personality - is he really a good fit for this team? That and his often extreme hot/cold plate performance swings make him a questionable option for the Sox. Depending on how Popeye and Gonzales are viewed and projected, I don't know that the Sox even go as high as the Profar/Taylor level contracts. There may be a 2b near MLB ready prospect in another team's system that is blocked ala Burger. i.e. there are several paths to consider. I just don't see Baez. And as a fan - don't really want him. But then I was dead set against the whole Machado nonsense from the start - which says more about me than any of these guys. I'm still waiting for Hahn's call on this matter - plenty of room on my voicemails.

    At least in Kimbrel's case a pick-up-the-option and trade isn't out of the question. Considering Hernandez' career numbers, I don't know whether this year is just an anomaly for him or that he's on the downslope of his career. A pretty steep slide at the plate here in Chicago but at least he's still a first class second baseman and that's worth something. I threw up in my mouth a little bit on the Baez idea.

    The only thing debatable about signing Leury is what kind of contract he'll get. Indispensable guy for the next two years anyway.
