    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    After the Nightenbomb with Tony LaRussa, I'd be more inclined to believe Nightengale than Bernstein's "source." That's just me tho.

  3. He owns the team. If it's Reinsdorf's issue, then it's a White Sox issue. Everyone is going to have to answer for it or about it. He won't be wearing a "Chicago Reinsdorfs" uniform. It will say "Sox" clear as day on the front. While you are right, Jerry made this decision knowing full well, he has made it a problem for everyone else on the team.
  4. To be fair, an employer has three choices in matters like this, when they are public...help, ignore, or cut bait. They all have ramifications, but only one really hurts and that is what the White Sox are doing now. Helping might not work, but you can say you tried. Cutting bait leaves that person behind, which could be a wake up call, or make it worse. Ignoring the problem doesn't do anyone any good. That's the problem I have currently.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    Tammy Duckworth was inteviewed the other day by Ali Velshi (I know, I know), but she said she has spoken with the Joint Chiefs and some high ranking officials in all the branches and they reiterated what Danny is saying here. They will not get involved as they swore on the Constitution, not the Presidency. AND, they have to follow all LAWFUL orders.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    If you want to go young and proven, go Hinch or Cora. If you want to go experience and proven, go Bochy. If you want the next thing, you go with Sandy Alomar, Espada or Quatraro. Or some top notch AAA coach. This reaks of a last ditch effort to win just one, when what the Sox need is someone who can manage them for 7-10 years. UUUUUGGGHHH!!!

    Players who like money.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I hope every single person in Detroit thanks Reinsdorf for this. Assuming Cora goes back to the Red Sox, then the Tiggers are going to get Hinch. *sigh*
  11. These are the top 32 managerial jobs in the world. As much as we talk about the same names recirculating, there are also names coming in and dropping out every year. If it's what you want to do and you are good at it, you will do everything you can to protect it. He made it known he didn't like it, he destroyed two monitors, he admitted to it, he took responsibility for it, he served his suspension, which was the 2nd longest ever (tied with Cora), not one PLAYER was suspended or punished in any way. I don't have a problem with Hinch. He screwed up, he took responsibility, he should be given a second chance if they think he can win here.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Came across this the other day, not sure if it was posted earlier: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-italy-virus/new-coronavirus-losing-potency-top-italian-doctor-says-idUSKBN2370OQ Take it with a grain of salt, but if true, maybe we will be ok sooner rather than later.
  13. But what do you do about contracts if they don't have a season? Do the players burn a year? Does this year just not count? Too many issues with that. It isn't the players fault there might not be baseball this year. It's a tough scenario.

    Trade Market for Starting Pitchers...

    What if the White Sox flipped Mazara to the Red Sox as part of a deal? Maybe Mazara and one or more of the glutton of OF in the system? Or maybe Dahlquist or Lambert? Or both? For JD Martinez, Eovaldi and some cash?
