    Getting robbed/what has come of society, etc?

    I went to a fraternity brother friends wedding in Sioux City IA either when I still was in college or right when I graduated. I still didn’t have a real job. I did get myself a sweet pair of Ray Bans though. So we go to the wedding, afterward my friend who I was with, and about 10 people from the wedding wind up in our hotel room drinking. I had my sunglasses sitting on the desk they provided at the lovely Holiday Inn where we were staying . Out of the corner of my eye, I see two guys talking to each other and one taking my glasses and putting them in his cowboy boot he was wearing. So I walk over and tell the guy I think he has my glasses. He makes up some story about how he thought someone might have misplaced them so he was holding them for later. He gave them back, and I told him he probably should leave. It was only a pair of sunglasses but they blew out my budget back then. i have just never understood why people can’t have enough decency to leave others things alone. Sorry about that Greg. Not everyone is bad. I lost my wallet at a Sox game earlier this season. I went to the lost and found at Guaranteed Rate, they didn’t have it although I did leave my contact info.I retraced my steps, nothing. The game ends, I am walking out of the park, my phone rings, it’s the White Sox, they have my wallet. Someone turned it in, and they took nothing, not even the cash.

    More "Hahnspeak" on Robert/Madrigal/Collins coming up

    I am wondering if it may be since there are no trades, they may release a couple of guys so they can perhaps finish the season out with a contender. It would have to happen pretty soon so they would have time to find a team to be eligible for the playoffs.

    They moved up first deposits for season tickets a couple of months this year. Makes me wonder what they are worried about.

    More "Hahnspeak" on Robert/Madrigal/Collins coming up

    He was called up when they were facing a lot of lefties, where either he was overmatched or on the bench. If they want to take credit for it being the reason he is hot now, that is quite a stretch.

    The way Collins was handled was the exact opposite of putting him in a position to succeed.

    The game thread

    Granted with a better line up, maybe he doesn’t bunt. But....first off Detwiler is a guy you have to figure will give up runs, playing for one run at a time is curious. Plus the opposing pitcher gave up 41 runs his last 41 innings pitched. You have to figure you have a shot at big innings.

    He is having a nice night, but if the White Sox expect to be d cent next year, Detwilershould be nowhere near 35th street unless it is in the other dugout.

    If Garcia didn’t bunt , the run would have scored anyway. His bunt didn’t produce a run in any way. He would have scored on the single,or the first homer or the second homer. The first bunt may have produced a run, but if Jon Jay has to bunt in that situation, why is he in the team? Setting it up for Matt something most managers wont do. The only way you can say that was the proper move is if you are of the belief that it was very u nlikely Jon Jay would advance runner in any other way. Hitting is hard enough. Giving up outs in that situation is not good.

    His guy has been maybe the worst pitcher in baseball the last couple of months. And Ricky is giving him outs.

    would have scored anyway with the second bunt. You just gave them an out. It cannot be determined if the run would have scored with the first bunt, but with the guy on the mound, good gift out. The Sox scored 5 runs with 8 outs. 25% of the outs were gifts.

    If he couldn’t do anything vs. this dope, he shouldn’t be in the line up.

    I just don’t see why a team that is short in the rotation and very lefty/lefty, righty/righty match up wouldn’t give it a whirl.

    So another wasted out. Rickey manages like he is facing Pedro Martinez in his prime.

    Stone seemed to take a shot at the bunting.
  15. Overall it’s still 10 k’s in 125 games. He also has hit 6 more homers, so using the same math that is up, using the same math, 27%.
  16. In 81 less plate appearances, he has 12 less k’s than his rookie year. I would not say he is striking out a ton more. The walks, yes. He does have 10 more k’s than he had last year in a similar number was of plate, but especially in today’s game, where 140 or 150 is nothing,, 10 is a reasonable variance. power. He also has 6 more homers.

    Moncada's ceiling

    The one thing that does make me wonder how good Moncada will ultimately be if he actually enjoys playing and competing. There just seems to be times when he doesn't seem into it. Obviously, talent wise, he has few peers.
  18. I would think he will be something around $10-12 million for a year, probably have a reasonably attainable option for year two, and one a little more difficult for year 3. That way the Sox get their money's worth, or he's one and done. It would be interesting to see how he performed in a good line up. But who knows if it will be good next year? It should at least be improved.

    Moncada's ceiling

    What I am looking forward to with TA is him cutting down on boneheaded defensive plays. Lately he has made some spectacular plays look really easy.
  20. You post like everyone in your life ignores you.
  21. If mods don't know what this means google it on the urban dictionary. If this crap is allowed to stand, this is going to get ugly because I am ready to fire back.
  22. Abreu isn't going to sign for 3 guaranteed years. it will be for 1 or 2, probably something performance based which triggers either a 2nd or 3rd year option.
  23. LMAO. If Eloy can't play LF, then wouldn't his overall WAR be supressed? Couldn't you get a king's ransom for him right now? Wouldn't it be selling high?
  24. How come none of the advanced stats only guys have never mentioned trading Eloy might be a good idea?
