    RIP Dick Allen

    Sox wouldn't have remained in Chicago if it weren't for the early '70s rebirth in interest led by Dick Allen.

    RIP Dick Allen

    I remember at the time hearing that Veek wanted him as DH but Dick wanted to be the starting 1B.

    My baseball hero. RIP Dick, thanks for saving the White Sox franchise in 1972. 😥

    La Russa arrested for DUI in Feb; charged day before hire

    The Reinsdorf Organization has been an embarrassment since he and Einhorn bought the White Sox.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Just about sums up my thoughts on this exactly.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I remember that too. The following season Jimmy had a role on the White Sox post game show and Reinsdorf had him fired from that after Jimmy criticized some of La Russa's in game moves after a frustrating White Sox loss. I loved Jimmy Piersall and despise Jerry Reinsdorf.

    I just watched the interview with Benetti on YouTube and I feel better about how he'll do managing the Sox the next couple of seasons. I still wish they hired someone else, but he'll do better than what the Sox have had managing for a long time.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Not a fan of the La Russa hiring, but as long as he doesn't pencil in one of the worst hitters on the team in the middle of the order as DH day in and day out, he'll be the best manager the Sox have had since 2006 Ozzie. I know, that's a very low bar, but it is what it is.

    The Reinsdorf White Sox have always been a joke of an organization. This doesn't even faze me. I hope they win, but whatever.

    I believe his mother's family is from Spain.

    Mazara and Right Field Thread

    I'd rather have some other pitcher than Stroman.

    Sox Press Conference - 11am 10/12 - RR out as Sox manager

    I hope not.

    Sox Press Conference - 11am 10/12 - RR out as Sox manager

    I'm very happy to have been wrong!

    2021 progression/regression

    I hope it doesn't happen, but in the back of my mind I fear the possibility of 2021 Jose Abreu becoming the latest White Sox version of Adam Dunn/Adam Laroche/Yonder Alonso/Edwin Encarnacion. That would be such a White Sox thing to happen.

    Will the Front Office Fire Renteria?

    JR is loyal to everyone except the fans.
