    Maybe we’ve been wrong, and TLR’s plan hasn’t been to replicate the ‘83 Sox but the 83 win 2006 WS Champion Cardinals. Sox only need to go 25-23. Then all we have to do is figure out where we’ll stand for the parade. HOF baseball person. Checkers/chess.
  2. He’s just completely lost at the plate (both sides). The good news is he almost has to get hot at some point. The bad news - that’s not the way the season has gone.

    Cease AL Pitcher of the Month again

    Yep. I tried to find last year’s trade deadline thread because I remember quite a few posts from people here wanting to dump him.

    Promotions That Work

    I hate when the logo of the sponsor is as prominent as the Sox logo.

    Hahn talking at 5:30

    If this is the start of an online petition to do so, consider this my signature.

    Hahn talking at 5:30

    I’m in the camp of being glad Hahn didn’t panic and trade prospects for rentals. It’s either happening or not this season based on how Yoan, Giolito, Grandal, Eloy, etc. perform from here on. If they don’t meet expectations, it doesn’t matter who was traded for unless one of our underachievers was part of the trade, but none of them have much trade value at this point.. A retool is needed, but now probably wasn’t the best opportunity unless the return was part of the future plan, not just the rest of this season.

    Hahn talking at 5:30

    I’m not sure why you’re asking, but the answer is a resounding “Yes!” when it comes to his on-air and Twitter personas. Total d-bag.

    08/01 - Royals @ White Sox, 7:10 PM CT

    Throw it something off speed.
  10. They’ve played about as badly as can be imagined, and they’re only 2 games back in the division and 2.5 out of the wild card. TLR was napping for the first 100 games. “It’s go time.”

    7/29 Athletics @ White Sox 7:10 PM CDT NBCSCH

    After he serves a 3 game suspension, he’ll come back, play one game, and take a day off to rest his legs. This season sucks.

    What could they possibly get for Hub?

    7/27 Sox @ Rockies 2:10 CST

    Another issue is every guy in the bullpen seems to pitch one inning every game, so nobody is ever fresh. Makes no sense that a guy will have a 12 pitch inning, but the Sox brain trust doesn’t think he can go another inning or at least get a few more outs. Every game is a starter going no more than 5 or 6 innings, and 3 or 4 relievers have to be perfect every day.

    7/24 Guardians @ White Sox 1:10 The Road to .500 Continues….

    I wasn’t sure if he’d be able to make up the one game difference with all the leg injuries, but you’ve talked me into it. 99 wins it is.

    ‘83 Sox were 49-47 at the 96 game mark. TLR’s got this team at 48-48 - only one game off that pace. It’s all working out according to his master plan. 98 win season is all but assured.
