    New Piece of White Sox Memorabilia...

    Nicky Delmonico whiffed in those gloves.
  2. Dan O'Dowd thinks this guy may regret turning down the QO. They showed him playing LF. He makes Eloy look really good, and supposedly the guy can't throw at all.

    Pomeranz as RP target?

    I wouldn't give him too much based on a little more than 20 innings. The fangraphs article seemed to give all the credit to his fastball improving a tick. He's 30. Does that mean if he loses a tick, he's a gas can again? He's always struck guys out. He did have a couple of decent years starting. I just think giving him decent money for more than a year is silly.

    He's the new Zach Duke.

    Sox issue qualifying offer to Abreu

    He's either going to sign the multi year or grab the QO. Either way this is most likely ending today.

    Sox issue qualifying offer to Abreu

    He is staying with the White Sox one way or another.

    Sox issue qualifying offer to Abreu

    I'm pretty sure he lives in Miami. And there are a ton of Cubans there, but he wants to be and will be a White Sox.

    We shop at the same grocery store. He looks 8 feet tall in person.

    A Realistic Offseason

    ‘‘Players want to come play for us, play for the White Sox, play on the South Side, play for [manager] Ricky [Renteria] and be part of what we’re building.’
  10. There may be nothing to this, but since they cheated, they lose the worry about yourself it's just coaching argument. There can be a lot of doubt.
  11. As they now say they are investigating withMLB, it's obvious they are guilty. So take a couple high picks and slot money away. Say next team that gets caught the punishment will be worse. I have no problem stealing signs if you get them the old fashioned way, usually a runner on 2b. In college we had a first base coach who could get them somehow, although he was wrong once with me and I almost went right into gas face first so I told him I didn't want to "know" anymore. Joe Nossek figuring out 3B signs is fine but there isn't nearly the running a more so that lessens the impact.

    NFL Thread 2019-2020

    That's the sad part about this. There is no even temporary fix for this offense. I guess an NFL exec told Lawrence Holmes exactly what my buddy told me a while back. The league caught up to Nagy. They used to run gadget plays, and that made them look better than they were, but no more, and Mitch can't figure out the offense. What bothers me is they have some talent, and yet they look like a John Fox coached offense with Moses Moreno under center when they have the ball. It has to be the QB. Another NFL exec told David Kaplan the Bears are probably in the Super Bowl if Stafford is their QB.

    NFL Thread 2019-2020

    So the Bears had their second fewest yards of the season vs. Detroit. They also tied their high mark on the season for sack allowed, and averaged less than even they average per carry running the ball. The problem doesn't appear to be Whitehead and Daniels switching positions.

    Rendon Thread

    I will not fall into the trap again and be disappointed when the team falls woefully short. Rendon won't be a White Sox.

    It won't happen but Moncada did tell Renteria he can play the OF.

    A Realistic Offseason

    I think one of the Cubs' problems is they strike out too much. The strike out is just another out is something that has gone away recently. BABIP won't be .000 on those ABs you don't k, but it is .000 on a k. I think Houston and Washington were two of the lower k rate teams in baseball. You have to have a lot of talent to overcome a high team k rate.

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    I would think a guy like Hahn has confidence in himself and if he was GM by title only and was offered a real GM job he would take it. He's not going to have a hard time finding employment. Maybe in baseball, if he failed, yes. But there is a time the wings have to be spread. He is the White Sox GM. They mom and pop it for the most part, but he's part of the 3 headed monster. Not all of the mistakes of the past 7 years were his, but I'm sure plenty were.

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    If you are a lackey and have an opportunity to call the shots, many people take calling the shots. That's why I don't think he is currently a lackey.

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    Wouldn't that mean change from the KW/JR way? I really think all 3 are on the same page, or Hahn would have taken another job somewhere else when he had the chance.

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    A couple of things, most teams are already priced out of Cole/Strasburg. Then you had who their agent is, you have to figure its' going to be a long time before both are signed. There was some talk Boras may want to get one done quickly.

    A Realistic Offseason

    A guy at the Athletic who apparently gets a lot of signings correct over the years, thinks thinks the Sox are going to sign Puig for 3/$30 million. Just speculation right now. Caulfield might have to move back. Is there a tariff?

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    Really nothing, but this is the MLB offseason, and if it's like the last couple, there is really nothing that hasn't been discussed to discuss until close to spring training.

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    Publicly emphasing you were right all along and your superior may have been wrong? I'm not buying that. Rick does go out of his way to kiss JR's ring every time a major player is signed or traded for. I doubt he would basically taunt JR and/or KW like that.
