    Late Inning Replacement
  1. QUOTE (fathom @ Jul 18, 2017 -> 11:36 PM) I'm gonna miss DRob. He struggled at times but I have never heard one bad thing about him off the field. Great guy. Salt of the earth.
  2. QUOTE (soxforlife05 @ Jul 18, 2017 -> 11:32 PM) Frazier went the way of Swisher Ran into Swish at the airport recently. Not a great fit in Chi, but all good. TV analyst and loving life. Dirty30 still smiling.
  3. QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Jul 18, 2017 -> 11:31 PM) I think this is a better trade then the Sale deal and probably like it more then the Q deal as well. I really really am a fan of this deal. With Sale / Q, I think the idea that we win the deal (as in get better talent then what we gave up, is relatively minimal)...now do we get future value (when we weren't able to leverage the current value of Q/Sale)...sure, but I don't see us winning those deals. In the case of this trade, I could see us acquiring the best player in the deal (as well as other contributors). Oddly enough, I could see this being the deal that when we look back a few years down the road, put us over the top. +1.
  4. I'm not sure some of you guys understand Rutherford's potential value and future impact. He's been coveted by a ton of teams in talks and was a very tough get. Front office is THRILLED to acquire him.

    Fathers Day on-field hat

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Jul 8, 2017 -> 11:48 AM) If any of you saw my post in the "celebrity death" thread a few weeks ago, my dad unexpectedly passed away in mid June. I would absolutely love to get the light blue they wore 8 days later. However it seems I have waited too long. Two local malls + Grandstand does not have my size (7 5/8) any longer. I know this sounds weird, but if anyone has the hat in my size (used or new- obviously still good condition if used) I would absolutely love to buy it from you in honor of my dad So sorry to hear about your father. My condolences. Here you go: http://www.mlbshop.com/Chicago_White_Sox_G...IFTY_Fitted_Hat

    Luis Robert signing official

    QUOTE (New Era on South Side @ May 20, 2017 -> 02:21 PM) Spiegel and Parkins kept saying Ro-bear until Rick Camp or Jay Zawaski said a Baseball America writer says "Robert." Robert is his middle name. Luis Robert Moirant.

    QUOTE (SouthSide2004 @ May 20, 2017 -> 02:22 PM) Probably #3 behind Moncada & Kopech. Moncada, Robert, Kopech...

    Rangers have increased pursuit of Q?

    QUOTE (BlackSox13 @ Feb 3, 2017 -> 03:50 PM) Exactly. I think Whitley and Perez are being over looked in the board discussions. A few people have mentioned Perez though. If people were OK with including Keller in a trade with Pitt then I see nothing wrong with going after Whitley and Perez. Hell, I would rather have Whitley than Keller. Wow. Keller's ceiling is much more projectable and much higher than Whitley or Perez at this point. In fact, it's higher than most pitching prospects in the minors right now.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (SoxPride18 @ Dec 10, 2016 -> 02:36 PM) Who do you think goes next and what could we expect back in return? Thanks for the info Bucket! Tough to call, but the usual suspects: likely Robertson, Frazier and Q. Sorry, now more than ever I can't be a resource for return names like I used to but there are some highly accurate package names in this thread. I will say that the national and local media info has been surprisingly in the know lately...credit to them.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (Dunt @ Dec 10, 2016 -> 01:49 PM) Do you think we see more this week? That's almost totally in the hands of Luhnow, Coppolela, Mozeliak and Rizzo. There is still momentum from last week's discussions. The scouting and talks have been very thorough for many months and further deals are on the board to be had. Make no mistake, teams very clearly know Rick's asks, which contributed to last week's action and thus the recent windfall of elite prospects.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (ptatc @ Dec 10, 2016 -> 01:32 PM) Any other cynics here think that the "rebuilding idea" and the two trades were just excuses to get rid of "perceived" problems in Sale and Eaton and the Sox are done trading? No, but it was a factor, for sure.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Dec 10, 2016 -> 01:13 PM) Why is that the problem? They have plenty of prospect depth from which to trade from. Grammar, man.

    Eaton to Nats/Giolito, Lopez, Dunning to Sox

    QUOTE (Deadpool @ Dec 7, 2016 -> 04:28 PM) Cowley's been out of the beat for a while, but he thinks these moves are more indicative of Hahn running the show. Couple of things: This paradigm shift is all Rick taking the reigns. Nobody will say this, but moving Chris and Adam was also about the clubhouse culture change.
  15. QUOTE (Dunt @ Jul 22, 2016 -> 03:22 PM) Wasnt there kind of a big power struggle behind the scenes because of this exact thing last season? Not so much a power struggle but the dynamic is strained.
