    Watt wants to win and the Bears are in bad cap shape. Watt is not coming here.

    And a fourth shot at finding a starting QB. I am worried his desperation will cause him to trade up in the draft to get a new QB and further set the franchise back long-term.

    Ok that makes. I was gonna say, no way you could get both in re-draft leagues without trading for one.

    Did you trade for Cook or Kamara?
  5. Brooks responded to me last night. Similar e-mail to the other one posted, but also personalized a bit. Brooks is a good man and he is listening. Keep those e-mails coming.
  6. My sole source of optimism at this point is that both sides are quiet because the Sox have outside counsel working on this. They probably can fire him for cause for the DUI, but then there is the issue of their notice of the situation. So perhaps the Sox and LaRussa are working on some sort of settlement to have him go away and that is why the radio silence from both parties.
  7. With an owner like Reinsdorf, you just simply will not have sustained success. He has been the biggest obstacle to winning White Sox baseball, and unfortunately, this organization won't turn around until he is gone. Hiring LaRussa was embarrassing enough. Now this. At a legitimate existential crisis with my White Sox fandom.

    If the Sox hire more progressive, young coaches, it will make hiring LaRussa more bearable to me. But if we hire retreads, this will set the organization back.

    Jerry Reinsdorf always finds a way to fuck everything up.

    And does anyone think the Sox would be able to devlop a toolsy, but raw hit tool high schooler?

    The only solace I have is that there was no way the Sox were catching the Orioles last year no matter how bad they played toward end of the year.

    Would you draft Paul Konerko with the third pick? Serious question. Obviously offensively, Paulie had a big impact on the game, but because he played first base, his overall value was about a 3 WAR player per year.

    He’s not athletic apparently. Lateral movement would be an issue

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Maybe, just maybe, the Sox are seeing all the negative reaction and get back in the Harper derby. If you give Harper $320 million over 10 years with an opt-out to satisfy him, maybe at the back end of the contract, you have bad money and maybe even during his prime years (due to defense and a bad hitting season), he isn't worth $32 million per year. But one bad contract won't kill a team from being competitive. And adding him to the Sox makes it more likely that the Sox are competitive, helps with marketing and attendance. The reward of Harper substantially outweighs the risk of him. He clearly is waiting for his number to be matched. The Sox simply have no reason not to do it (except probably a mandate from the owner).

    I will be going to one, White Sox v. Red Sox for my dad's b-day, only because he wanted to see the World Champs. Other than that, won't be supporting this organization fiscally.
