    Who would still want Maddon?

    I don't mind Maddon but I think in Chicago there will always be other outside noise with him and the cubs that would be a distraction.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Check out the schedules Cards - cubs/dbacks/cubs last series at home Cubs - cards/pirates/cards last week on the road Brewers pirates-reds -rockies last week on the road Washington braves/phillies/indians all at home Washington is going to have to earn it, Brewers have all winnable games too bad Yelich is out. Cardinals have a nice lead but the schedule is tough although the D'backs have fallen back.

    Machado do-over

    I'll take Cole/Stras/Baum and Madrigal and $100M over Machado Machado was a bad contract from day one but the White Sox need to realize that, that is a part of the game. Bad contracts are a part of the deal.

    The Anti-MLM Thread

    A super nice high school kid sold me a set of Cutco knives, they work and we needed them. I passed him on to two others who bought some stuff from him. We all knew the drill but he was a really nice kid. I hope he got a real job. I think I have essential oils burning in my house. I understand the model and stay away and my wife is too lazy to get on that train.

    Probably but will depend on how the other 8A schools do, they are usually on the border.
  6. Going against a guy that knew their offense rather well in Fangio and the air and heat in Denver played a role, I am just happy with the win. Fangio going for two actually cost them the game because I think the Bears play for OT if it is tied and that isn't ending well.

    Game Thread - 09/12/19 - Royals @ Sox - Gio Day

    Sadly i think Sanchez keeps the job through all of next year. The White Sox more than any other team in sports will stick with a lesser player because the chemistry he brings to the team/clubhouse is unparalleled in sport. Ricky can't go quick enough but I am sure he will be on the field in the Chevy drive up next spring.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Sucks Yelich got hurt as the Brewers got some bullpen help back. All of a sudden AZ is struggling. That series in NY was huge in keeping cub afloat.

    Was in news last week that his LP home is on the market. Hoyer is a Theo puppet that handed him Rizzo I'm sure in Boston he will trade Betts for Horner, Happ and Schwarber

    Yelich done for the year just when the Brewers were getting their shit together...Go AZ

    JD Martinez

    Look at the DH and RF stats the last few years. Please this is a no brainer. The White Sox need professional hitters and can afford a bad three year contract.

    Teams need 5 wins. Look at the rest of their schedule 1 somewhat easy game left but that is drive up to Mundelein on a Friday. Every team needs a couple winnable games. Every CCL school now has financial aid of varies degrees for athletes. That is the only way Rice and Marist can compete in 8A.
  13. They play good teams on national television.

    9/5 Sox@Indians gamethread

    And a leadoff hitter...the batting handedness of RR is something It is baffling...the thought process of this organization is simply idiotic. Do they think Ryan Goins is a piece moving forward?

    9/5 Sox@Indians gamethread

    Goins leading off..and in the OF ..... maybe Ricky is really just trying to tank. I really hope his goal is still to tank because there is no reason for Castillo to play over Cordell, Collins or McCann at this point and if Collins is in the lineup this month it should be to catch. Clown car

    September Call Ups - Who gets the Nod?

    The Yermin thing baffles me......I watched Goins end that game last night and thought....this is really the best option in the organization that could have 40 men on the roster currently?

    Official Game Thread Sox @ CLE - 09/04/19

    This organization is just fundamentally bad. Just about every pop up is a circus, bad approaches at the plate as they never fight off or take pitcher pitches, look at Anderson's defense, it is not getting better or Eloy's. I( ma not certain this organization is doing anything to improve their player development.

    September Call Ups - Who gets the Nod?

    Mendick and Collins should play every day. Yolmer is what he is and McCann can use a break. I know both will probably get 15 total at bats the rest of the way. There was no chance Nick or Louis were coming up nor should there have been.

    September Call Ups - Who gets the Nod?

    As bad as Mercedes may be it would be no worse than Zavala, Skole, Wellington or Palka this year. There is an annual parade of bad that lingers every year. What do they lose by bringing him up?

    Is Ricky the worst manager in White Sox history?

    Back before divisional play the White Sox had to compete with the Yankees for that one playoff spot. That kind of skews everything.

    8/27 Games

    Juiced ball offsets that for me.

    Cordell sent down

    The handedness decision of this org are amazing. IS Skole still hanging around? Actually Cordell helps Charlotte so good for them as not sure Engel or Skole are answers there as much as Cordell. I'd like to see AAA make some playoff noise just to get more time for those guys.

    8/22 Games

    He is but it is a tax dodge, then he can play winter ball and be stateside next spring. This is an easy way to get back into swing of things, literally.

    White Sox at Twinkees 8/21/19

    If this is Gio for the next few years...tatis stings much less. The issue with Abreu and to a degree anderson is the OBP is so low that hey will never reach a sabermetric level they could, look at Abreu's OPS.

    Ivan Nova open to re-signing with the Sox

    Nova's deal is not going to impact signing a better starter. If they signed a top 5 free agent starter they would still need a guy like Nova. Nova is a nice back end guy as he takes the ball every 5th day and gives you 6 innings. There are too many Covey, Banuelos, Santiago, Deitweiler starts Especially if Kopech and Cease have inning limits. Even with resigning him they need another starter.
