    I hear they look good. EdgyTim Warren poster let you know weekly. Not to be confused with guy gregg is talking about btw. Gregg, Rice looks ok. Lot of underclassmen but they should not have lost to Laurence or Providence at home. They can beat MC but are a one and done in playoffs if they go in 5-4 in 8A

    NLCS- Nationals/Cardinals

    I like the fact they stuck with Davey Martinez and it worked out. I know nothing about Martinez but it's a good story that it is working out for them. Hopefully they can keep Rendon and Stras.

    NLDS- Nationals/Dodgers

    Maybe teams will begin to go back to overpaying for bullpen arms at the deadline. A year or two too late for the White Sox. If the Nats had a bullpen they would be scary as hell. That was a great game.
  6. That whole game yesterday was bad and they deserved to lose but not realizing they may fake the punt is on the special teams coach.

    Will the Sox be able to retain J Ben?

    I don't think the national gigs pay as well as the local gigs for guys like him. Singleton left but there are numerous like Charlie Steiner and the guys in Baltimore and SF that were ESPN guys that left for local gigs that still do national stuff periodically like John Rooney and Benetti.
  8. That is only a 5 year period. It's not like it is saying 15 wins is the most by a coach since Ditka. Kind of a pointless stat.

    Hahn SOTU

    Not a Ricky fan but I understand him coming back. Short leash though I hope.

    Sox Win and Cubs Eliminated

    I said this in another thread and will say it here as I had in the past. I get nothing financially out of my team's success. All I want is the daily enjoyment of a winning baseball team. After the first game of 2006, 2005 was done. I hope my daily enthusiasm for the White Sox and knowing every day when and where they are playing and getting out to the park is a priority that returns as it has not been there for a number of years. I'd take 6 - 10 years of playoff success over one world series. I agree with the Sox rebuild btw. Now, if the cubs don't make the playoffs again and the Dodgers win the next 10 NL west titles, which run of success as a fan to enjoy more.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    So Kenny Williams is a better GM than Billy Beane? I am of the mindest I want my team to be an option for entertainment every day not one year out of 20. As a person who gets zero financial benefit for the White Sox, I would take 10 division titles over a world championship and then twenty years of nothing. As a fan looking to sit and watch one team daily, I'd take the Dodgers during Theo's tenure than the cubs. i got zero enjoyment out of the 2005 White Sox after the first game of the 2006 season.

    State of Chicago baseball: the tipping point

    Pretty simple, because hockey is not football, basketball or baseball. People will follow the Blackhawks if they are winning. If they are not winning nobody cares about them. If the Chicago Sky won every WNBA since it's inception or the Fire won the MLS, neither would be close to gaining any more relevance in the city.

    State of Chicago baseball: the tipping point

    Everything being equal (no fan support, stadium neighborhood, owner, etc) pure talent, likability and long term trajectory, the Sox look like the better team. Now the cub can go sign Castelleanos (sp?) and Cole and the Sox can miss on Wheeler and we are one step forward, two steps back. Robert, Madrigal, Cease, Dunning, Kopech, Jimenez, Moncada, Giolito.......that's something to build on I thought missing on Machado and Harper hurt but now go win this off season.
