    I am definitely not saying it is right, but more of a fact of life.

    White Sox fan taunts Astros during ALCS

    It isn't about what he said, it is about how he said it. This guy figured out how to get into a series where there was no admission to the games. He figured out that in a normal playoff situation, there would be 40,000 people hanging on every single pitch, and his voice would never get heard, even with a bullhorn. He also figured out how to get national media attention drawn back to the Astros, and how to make the Astros have to actually hear it, and talk about it. Again. No one else has managed to achieve any of it.

    We have seen it in many other industries. Whistleblowers don't get hired.

    Official NHL COVID season thread

    Graduated from the same small town Indiana college that I did. One of the best to ever put on a headset. There was nothing better than listening to him and Eddie O on a Sunday afternoon game.
  5. Was Vegas a fluke? Can Ovie defend a cup? Will the Hawks bounce back?

    Tony La Russa

    Hopefully this is all a ruse to get Tony one last big payday somewhere else.

    I think the angle that if Hinch speaks out, he never works in MLB again is pretty underappreciated here. The way he went at it, he is probably getting rehired this winter.

    Offseason Targets

    Seeing as Chris Sale is going to miss some portion of next season, I don't think you can assume that for 2021. No doubt a HEALTHY Chris Sale is significantly better, but we can't make that assumption anymore, plus we KNOW he is going to miss some portion of the season due to TJS.

    Tony or Ricky

    Ricky for sure. No interest in TLR. In fact I think it would be a detriment for him to go into a clubhouse and tell a guy like Tim Anderson he can't kneel for the national anthem.

    White Sox fan taunts Astros during ALCS

    This is pretty genius of a heckling. It is also silly to think that players didn't get cheated out of money here. There are a couple of careers that may have been destroyed along the way of guys who got blown up as pitchers by this scam.

    Tony La Russa

    Read up on Tony LaRussas history on these topics and explain to me how incident after incident doesn't add up to anything in your eyes. It isn't once. It isn't twice. It's a history. For some that history doesn't seem like a bad thing, and actually buy into his way of thinking, and how easily it has been mobilized to set a faction of the USA against the black population of this country. It's the same playbook that has been utilized for centuries now, but people keep lapping it up. Code words, stereotypes, fear of large groups of black people, etc. Gets you pointing the finger at them instead of hearing their anger and fears. Yeah, when it comes to an issue like this, I am not going to pretend to respect people who utilize racism to further themselves politically, and those who lap it up at their boots. TLR has a history here. And it extensively put him on the other side of the black athletes. It isn't even just the anthem either. If don't want to see it, you never will. Let's face it, when MLK wrote his letter about the white moderate, the letter was meant for the 60s, but it is timeless.

    Tony La Russa

    Its sad that you think it isn't, especially with what LaRussa has said and done during his major league history.

    Go back to opening day.

    Nah, we should totally let racists beliefs be. No one gets hurt by it.

    Rick Hahn is Sporting News Executive of the Year

    Imagine not recognizing the growth the White Sox have had over the last year instead of trying to substitute bitterness from something that isn't applicable to what is being talked about here. It is Executive of the year.

    Pitching Coach Candidates

    So one minor league pitcher with pre existing control problems fails, so he shouldn't get the job. Makes sense. We all know how fail safe 2nd round picks are.

    are we talking about Hinch or TLR?

    Pitching Coach Candidates

    Hahn was pretty much as clear as he gets on this. It will be an internal promotion.

    Pitching Coach Candidates

    And Hahn flat out named Zaleski as a candidate during his presser.
