    SLG and OBP need to go up. That's only about an 8% BB rate with an ISO of .129.

    Do they really want to lose again?

    Actually, yeah, Bryce, get me his information. We've literally argued about Pressley before and while I've donated to Beto (because fuck Cruz), my time is more valuable than my money to me, and Beto doesn't actually reflect my values, he's just "not Ted Cruz". I'll give money (and a vote if I had it) to that cause, but not time. Bryce is actually pretty close to what I want as a rep, and turning Paul Ryan's seat would be great. He's not quite as aggressive on raising taxes on the wealthy as I'd like, but no candidate is perfect.

    You sound very establishment Democrat here. "Volunteer for who I tell you to, OR ELSE!"

    Who are you to judge that? IMO, AOC needs my support more than any candidate as she's the one who most closely articulates the platform I believe in. Besides, I gave you two other options. I'll help either of the progressives that won their primaries and are having sore loser campaigns run by the Centrist Democrat that was in the race that StrangeSox cited earlier. Andrea Harrington or Rachel Rollins, either will work. I have no interest in helping "Democrats" who are looking out for corporations moreso than constituents. If I did, I'd help Donnelly or Visclosky.

    @Reddy, you can get me the info for these two, as well.

    Race for the worst 2018 record (Top 5 pick) again

    The good news is if the White Sox end with the same number of wins as the Marlins, they get the higher pick.

    Amend the bill to take out the increase in military spending. Sure, how about Ocasio-Cortez?

    Rauner has been absolutely disastrous for Illinois and has exacerbated several of the problems the state already faced by acting more like a petulant child than a governor. I don't trust Pritzker, either, but at least he has some good agenda items, like a progressive income tax at the state level instead of a flat tax. I just don't know that he'll act on them, because the Democratic party talks a big game on the campaign trail, then caves when it comes time to deliver on those promises. That's why they can't consistently win elections. Daniel Biss would've been a better choice for governor than either of the candidates running now IMO.

    This is a good article for Reddy to read. I have no doubt his first move will be to try to discredit the source.

    That's not how limited partnerships work. Limited partners have little to no recourse to oppose the decisions of the general partner, typically it's none. That is likely the reason the White Sox are owned by a limited partnership.

    Voting to authorize increased military spending is a terrible idea.

    There's not a politician worth my time in a 50 mile radius of me. I didn't bring it up. You started your Bernie Bro bullshit after the NY primaries before I even commented on it. And now you're just outright lying, a tactic straight out of the HRC playbook.

    It's a limited partnership. I haven't seen the organizing documents, but that suggests that all of the investors have a limited partner stake, with the general partner being the corporation over which Reinsdorf has majority control. In a limited partnership, the general partner(s) has/have 100% control regardless of the ownership shares. That means if Reinsdorf has majority control of the corporate general partner of the limited partnership that owns the White Sox, he has 100% control of all decisions for all intents and purposes.

    Cease has control issues? Isn't his BB/9 incredibly low?
