    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Do you realize how dumb (and wrong) it is to let your political leanings impact your feelings on a decision to hire somebody? Not a good argument for you.

    Yes she is. In fact, she is wrong about everything she says. Horrible person and complete idiot.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    This is idiotic. There is no way this is Hahn move. Saying that, I welcome the meltdowns of idiots on the Score like Dan Bernstein who will be calling him a racist, etc. Makes me like the hire to hear those nuts lose their minds. From a White Sox perspective, this is a 100% JR move. They have made a lot of good move to get to this point. There is no way Hahn would have ever landed on La Russa. Clearly not his selection. It may not matter if this team is as good as we expect it to be next season and the manager just needs to not mess things up, but very discouraging to see moves made like this. Makes you wonder what Hahn will be able to do with the team in a year with no revenues coming in.

    MLB teams who are most likely to be sellers this Winter

    There's no way they don't attempt to change their lineup. I don't know they are sellers though - I expect that they would want mlb ready talent in return than a rebuild.

    #3 Starter for Playoffs

    Are the White Sox going to spend huge money for Bauer? Don't they have to pay Giolioto still also? The current names look really good as well. Clearly, I'd love to sign Bauer, but they have a young rotation of studs and high level potential. I would definitely expect them to add competition (similar to Gio) for the #5 spot though.Insert other media

    I'd also lean Cease if it's a best of 3. He has great stuff, but not great command. I'd rather use him on a tight leash and hope for 3-4 innings and his stuff to get him through. Dunning seems to be more polished, maybe he's an option to come in early. Either way, the offense will need to be ready and either guy would have to be on a very tight leash.

    Stone's Throwing of Shade at Ricky

    I think he's throwing more than shade with those comments.

    Will attendance be impacted by this slow start?

    7/28 Sox/Indians Double Header thread

    Hahn was somewhat cautiously optimistic about this year back in March, but seemed to a believer right before this season. I was sort of excited by Hahn's comments last week about this team. There are still a lot of question marks though if you take a step back. Maybe this team goes on a massive win streak after leaving Cleveland and everything is fine, but this roster is full of young talent and most of it hasn't proved itself over long stretches at the major league level. It could be realistic to say that this year was that building block to gain experience, etc. at the major league level.

    The hype was definitely building for this year's team, maybe unrealistic. It's a bit depressing though that they are playing themselves out of contention 5 games into this season.

    He always receives some initial attention because he's an outlier and creates some attention for himself with his style. He is never going to be a national candidate.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Positive test rate is an indicator of how widespread the virus is. A state with a high percentage of positive tests could eventually lead to increased hospitalizations, but obviously, that is a function of total cases identified, the demographics and the symptoms being present States will have more demand in area's with higher positive rates, but states are adding more capacity to test. Illinois is now up to 35K+ - it wasn't long enough that Illinois was under 10K tests per day. They continued to ramp up testing locations as percentage of positive tests were 20%.

    Moncada, Ruiz placed on 10-day IL

    I don't know about "months", but I do agree that the test results need to be very quick to be meaningful - one to two days, not a week or longer.

    2019-2020 Official NBA Thread

    There's too much injury risk in play here. It sucks that the NBA couldn't finish the season due to the pandemic and the Bulls are unlikely to play in a game until the end of this year (at best), but it is what it is at this point. Figure out who to draft and who to coach this team.
