    Notre Dame Cathedral Fire

    Went there in 1999, but I feel like I was too young to really appreciate it. This is a punch to the gut. I thought my secretary was exaggerating about the severity, but sure enough, it's pretty much gone. During Holy Week, to boot. What a loss.

    Time for a change ... Don Cooper needs to go

    Sox @ Yankees, 4/12, 6:05 CT

    I don't think WGN does replays.

    4/7- Sox vs Mariners, 1:10, WGN

    Or like the past 11 years of White Sox baseball.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    This season is not even 10 games old. The standings, league-wide, will correct themselves over the course of the next few days/weeks. Red Sox are last in their division, while O's are in second. Mariners are leading their division, while Astros are fourth. It's fun to watch the Cubs trip over themselves, but let's be real.

    And that’s a White Sox Winner!

    Happy for Giolito. Not going to point to one outing as anything super meaningful, but I've been of the opinion that he'll put it together and turn into something for the Sox, so this was good to see.

    2019 Predictions

    Giolito will have a decent year. Rodon avoids the DL, also has a good year. Lopez turns out to be a back of the rotation guy. Santana doesn't make it the whole year due to either injury or ineffectiveness. Engel's bat improves, he is let go anyway. Eloy does not live up to the hype in his first year. Repeat performance from Moncada. Avi Garcia has himself a nice season for the Rays.

    Burr, Banuelos, Covey to Pen

    Hope Covey does well- he looked pretty good his first time through the order more often than not, it seemed.

    Dallas Keuchel time is now.

    Obviously those two are top-shelf (don't think Machado would have cost a pick, which makes that sting even more), but I'd even be ok with something lower-tier. Prior to his extension, if Goldschmidt came at the cost of a pick next year, I'd be fine with that. This past offseason, Corbin, Grandal, Pollack come to mind.

    Dallas Keuchel time is now.

    RIght, I agree that going after Keuchel isn't the thing to do. For the right FA, though, I'm not shedding any tears over the loss of a pick that would otherwise be in the hands of Hahn and friends.

    Verlander getting an extension..

    Yep, and Hahn threw money that should have gone toward a Machado/Harper signing at a bunch of junk, instead.

    Dallas Keuchel time is now.

    I used to think so too, until it occurred to me that this organization really doesn't have a great track record with the draft/identifying talent. I don't know that I'd be in favor of going after Keuchel, just saying if there was an intriguing FA out there, a pick that will likely wind up being a bust doesn't mean as much to me.

    Rick Hahn is a putz.
