    Home Opener pushed to Friday

    That's my plan as well. Just googled and nothing about delay as of yet, but we'll see. I'm taking tomorrow off if they don't cancel it today and if it doesn't get in, then oh well, I'll just have a fun day with my friends and not come back Friday.

    Weekday tailgating

    Yeah, I'm in same boat, but just talked to my friend that I'm going with and we're just going to do Thursday, if it gets rained out we'll just enjoy the day.

    Weekday tailgating

    Yeah, there's always some. My friends and I often do it and we're certainly not the only ones.

    If White Sox are sold

    Right, or NOLA. Look, I'm pissed at the Sox right now as others are here because I know they could afford the Machado contract and they didn't step up, likely, because JR is old school and wouldn't sign the biggest FA contract in history, but this comes down to money for MLB. As noted above, Sox as a distant 2nd team in this market still is valuable and has a potential to be more lucrative than other markets.

    If White Sox are sold

    Right, and MLB would push for expansion, not a move. It's a several hundred million dollar difference in revenue to MLB.

    If White Sox are sold

    I'm not saying there's a zero possibility, but a city wanting a team and being able to bamboozle its citizens into paying for a stadium isn't as easy as it once was. I'm sure MLB would love all those cities to be ready to take a team tomorrow, but realistically that is not going to happen.

    If White Sox are sold

    MLB is looking at expanding, due to the ridiculous expansion fees they can get, they'll discourage teams moving as to not burn a potential expansion market. White Sox are in a major media market and have had decent payrolls in the past and will do well business-wise if they win. I don't see MLB or MLBA wanting them to move.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    It's a better offer in Sox front office twisted mind. Seems like a guaranteed 300m vs guaranteed 250m.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I'm assuming it "would not be about 1 guy" and Shae had a typo? I can't believe Hahn would come out and say the entire rebuild hinged on Machado, but don't rule anything out at this point.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    The most aggravating part of the Hahn press conference will be when he will talk about how he knows how frustrated the fans are but give them time, blah blah...

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    That will likely be Hahn's spin at the 1pm. They don't want to be "hamstrung" by a big contract and he'll likely point to Cubs comments yesterday that they're "out of money".

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I bet Hahn has the balls to mention the Cubs (was it Epstein?) yesterday about how they're out of money. He'll say something like "well, these big deals don't always work out and hurt your flexibility down the road".

    They can, they choose not to, big difference.

    I've walked there after shows at Allstate to get a Lyft/Uber. It's better figuring out the cluster of the shared ride pickup at Allstate and you can have a few drinks while waiting.

    Yeah, check bank every day, helped me on a few times, especially when there was unauthorized $500 from Venmo, BMO gave me zero issues in resolving it right away.
