    White Sox final win total

    Looks like another 90 loss season for Rick Hahn. He slept through the July trading period and is using September to take care of the organizational minor leaguers, instead of developing talent. How long do Williams and Hahn get to try? Per the modern rebuilds, we should contend next season.

    Strikeout more than 8.1/9; WHIP under 1 or preferably under .9

    Obviously he's an upgrade. It's like the Frazier move. Premature and for a not great player (1 4.2 WR and the rest 2.5 or less). The Sox were fortunate the prospects didn't do much (not so fortunate in the Shields and Samardzija trades). The problem is that it's unlikely the Sox win during his 3 years on the contract. Look at the holes on this team: RF, 2B, Catcher, CF, DH, maybe 1B. Pitching, they have 1 for sure starter; Cease is a likely, Lopez is a maybe, Kopech a maybe. So they need 2 at least starters plus an extra which leaves them with no depth (3 starters minimum). And the pen...they don't have a single "ace" in the pen and they are way short on numbers. And then there's the bench. Those holes aren't getting filled in a season and probably not 2. And the very players that could perhaps fill those holes in a year or 2 are the ones that Hahn would have to trade away for him. (And I know, he won't trade Vaughn, Madrigal, Kopech or Robert....but he'd trade a few of anyone else).

    No it isn't. But that's all they have (plus 1/2 a pitching staff) after year 3 of a rebuild.

    Yes, if we want to top out at 80 wins. That's the nonsense Hahn did from 2014-16: trading prospects for good/not-great players when the team is still losing 90 games. But I think it's reasonable that Boston will be pushing him. And this FO repeatedly falls for the player that the other teams are pushing.

    Could the White Sox hire Dave Dombrowski?

    No they shouldn't. Certainly the Sox should clean house...but not to hire Dombrowski.

    Machado do-over

    Indeed it is.
  8. As long as Hahn is GM, the Sox will have some stiff like Renteria as manager.
  9. This team and org. is a real piece of work.

    Well they won't out and out release him, but not protecting him (even though there is ample room) will have the same effect.

    9/2/19 White Sox @Cleveland MLB Free Game of the Day

    Sox not far ahead of KC by the run gap; and well behind Seattle. Plus, look at the 2nd half. This team got decidedly worse.

    Only Detroit. This team with all of its org. minor leaguers that the FO insists on playing is really bad.

    This It wouldn't surprise me if they release Mercedes after this season.

    9/1- Sox at Braves, 4:10, WGN

    Considering that next year is year 4, does this look like a team ready to contend? It should be (with all due respect to the FO excuses and Hahn's outrageous self-serving claim that rebuilds take 7 years). The run differential is worse than teams in year 1 of their rebuild; a mere 12 runs better than the Royals. 20-25% of the roster is populated by certified org. guys. 7 straight losing seasons. A non-effort at the trade deadline. and on and on.
  15. Renteria is probably not the worst manager in Sox history. But Hahn is neck and neck with Ed Short for the worst GM in Sox history.
