    Mariners president and CEO Kevin Mather's Zoom Call

    Executives need to learn that Zoom calls aren’t just between you, your attendees, China, and the NSA anymore... it’s an open forum with delayed release.

    Microdiscectomy worked well for me

    Did We Go Cheap Not Signing Another Bat?

    Yoenis Cespedes on a minor league has some appeal for me as an early DH.

    Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

    Maybe the second year is a sticking point

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    They don’t like his attitude?
  7. Right on, didn’t see that. Good thing there’s no shortage of really good candidates, even in house.
  8. Maybe, or he just doesn’t want to leave Michigan. No shortage of young pitching to coach and mold in Detroit.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    670 The Score @670TheScore Ozzie Guillen was devastated to learn he wouldn't be a White Sox managerial candidate, but he has high praise for the Tony La Russa hiring. "This is the guy the White Sox need," Guillen says. https://bit.ly/387fxc0 via @mullyhaugh

    That suggests it’s less about Moncada and more about TLR being a meanie

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    Abreu and other seasoned vets were provided an opportunity to discuss the team and their needs prior to the trade deadline... I’m sure they may have some say in who they’d like the next manager to be. For all we know, their voice led to RR being let go in the first place. They aren’t driving to boat, but I’m sure there is some synergy between the players and FO.

    Offseason Targets

    That’s totally fair, and I’m good with it if it shakes out that way.

    Bauer could be a TOR starter that positively influences the young starters. I think we have the depth, we need to make sure we don’t discount who is working with them. For all the criticism Coop gets, he does work well with our pitchers in building confidence. If we can mesh that with an analytics type of approach, it may be the best of both worlds. Could be a disaster, I realize... but winning cures all woes, and I’m onboard with this gamble.
  15. I hope that pitching coach is Bauer

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    At least he saw 3 batters

    Fire Ricky

    RR has lost the fan base, but I have to believe that he’s losing the clubhouse as well. They might like him, but they’re competitors first and foremost.
  18. Great point. Limping into the playoffs with a young team spells 1 and out. Momentum is absolutely key.
  19. I don’t disagree necessarily, but he doesn’t have that fire. Fulmer could still throw hard too. Maybe he has something left in the tank, but honestly, he just feels done. Seemed like that even before this latest injury.
  20. Not Rodon’s fault, nonetheless, he’s done

    Remember when everyone was pissed that Abreu was extended?

    White Sox @ Pirates - 9/8/20 - 6:05 CT

    Love Madrigal! With that said... his base running last night may have cost the game. Both throw outs are in him.

    and just taking a walk in general with the bases loaded

    Trevor Bauer Breaks down Giolito's No-No

    Sign him, want him talking with our guys
  25. SkokieSox


    I liked the pick and like the call up. With that said, his attitude was poor when not breaking with the team. I get it, I want a competitor that’s confident. But he was not owed anything, should’ve been more gracious imo. That chip on his shoulder looks to be translating into pressing in his at bats. He’ll come around, but he lacks some of the maturity I had presumed was already part of his arsenal.
