    "We tried" is the slogan of the sox.

    Game of Thrones

    The HBO tradition of taking a first class long run series and having some over thought ending that makes most angry. They did this with the Sopranos and now they have done it with GoT. Underwhelming.

    Abreu trade value?

    Yet our management team didnt understand why Manny didnt take mythical future sox monopoly money tied to ABs over real cash tied to years.

    And that’s a Pretty in Pink White Sox Winner....

    I used weighted plyo balls against a wall to shorten my sons arm circle up as an infielder. Its remarkably effective instead of trying to give verbal cues or doing random drills.

    Your eye test is flawed.

    He would take him over all candidates. We have been through the Ozzie experience. Its over, move on.

    That cant be. I was assured that they really work on defense by a poster here.

    I am sure they take ground balls. There is a difference between taking infield and spending time on working isolation, short hop, footwork, fielding technique and working through each phase.

    I am sure that Timmy Anderson is really working on his fielding craft and its just luck that he isn't getting better. Too much smoke surrounding a team that has promoted fielding butchers who have a single tool, the hit tool.

    This is what development looks like. Instead of just going through the motions and hoping they get better based on some sort of experience ladder.

    Maybe Timmy should work on fielding instead of his bat flip. Timmy just needed to clear through the bag instead of trying to Matrix the throw.

    high school shortstops make that play. Dip the shoulder, bury your head in the mitt and then pick up the throw. I swear to god I watch fielding guru's work with major leaguers and they get better and our guys cant even work a basic defense at times. Our development staff sucks.

    Passing a Runner after hitting a home run

    What if the runner never touches home plate, or misses bases all together. This isn't that hard. Obviously it doesn't happen that much and we shouldn't have to go through the motions to make the game safe for those who do stupid things from time to time. In a HS game this year I saw a runner on a hit and run miss 2nd returning back to first on a ball caught deep in the outfield. He was safe at first. The appeal to the umps called him out because he missed 2nd. Lots of rules like this. Hell the stupid drop 3rd strike rule as a former pitcher I think is dumb. We reward a guy who swung at a pitch so bad a catcher couldn't handle it. Yet it happens. And more to the point what the hell is our 1st base coach doing besides sleeping over there. That's part of the job is to be aware of things like this. Like why are you tagging up, hey don't pass the runner he is still there.

    Passing a Runner after hitting a home run

    The rule doesn't need to be changed. This not passing the runner thing is covered at length before a kid is 9 years old. Right after run to first, then take a left and go to the next base. Its a home run not a bang-bang play that required some thought. Don't pass up the guy wearing the same uniform as you. Its not rocket science.
