    I'm going to guess the comment was related to China having roughly 5x the population of the U.S.

    MLB cheating scandal

    I know there's multiple of pages of posts after this, but I took a quick look at the splits from 2017 and the Astros were a 'decent' amount worse, offensively, at home than on the road in the 2nd half of 2017. Maybe they had guys injured in that 2nd half, but if that's when they really kicked their cheating into gear they weren't very good at it.

    Minooka was way overseeded, but that's the playoff points seeding method. You'd think they could put Soucie, Edgy Tim, a Quad Cities reporter, someone from Springfield in a room and give them more legitimate seedings, but it is what it is. It's high school so anything can happen, but Rice and Marist will both be heavy underdogs next week.

    Predict the 1st Free Agent Signed

    Sorry, but late to the party. Where is the support that the Sox spent the above? Maybe it's true, but is that because they didn't spend in the draft, scouting, managers and data analysis?

    Winovich should give his signing bonus to Gary because he doesn't have near the production if Gary isn't doubled every play.

    Avi Garcia non-tendered

    Absolutely and that doesn't count all the profits from the previous years that are supposedly going back into the club........ And don't confuse that statement that we should spend it all this offseason if they will really use it in the future.

    Illinois High School Football Thread

    I wasn't just talking football. Look across their entire program. They dominate basketball and baseball. I get Kansas has open enrollment, but Aquinas pulls any kid in the metro with a pulse. Johnson County and Wichita dominate football because, as mentioned previously, those cities/programs have big dollars and fund the youth programs. St. Thomas dominates while a ton of public schools in close proximity can't even field remotely competitive teams. I get that BR has to "split" with a lot of other nearby private schools, but who in their right mind sends their kid to one of the public schools near there? What parent is going to send their kid to Joliet West or Central when JCA is offering a free ride?, ect. I don't know the exact answer for a recruiting multiplier, but recruiting is most certainly not exaggerated.

    Just research St. Thomas Aquinas in your own backyard for your answer.....

    This is exactly correct. They've played two legit QB's...one that played half the game on one leg and another with one of the worst WR crews around. The Bears can't stop a decent hurry up/spread offense. Their pass defense is the pass rush...they don't get there and they can't cover me in a phone booth. And don't give me any stats that says Amos, Jackson is good, ect (just like MLB defensive metrics are complete BS)...ya'all saw the tape and have seen the tape.

    Police keep killing black people

    I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me the 16 guilty counts of aggravated battery seems to be that he was guilty for even firing the 1st shot. Is that a correct assessment for the verdict?

    Stadium Club

    Club level seats do not grant access to the stadium club so you need a separate ticket to get into the actual "Club". With 3 girls under 10 it works for me to pay to have access to 'private' bathrooms on days that are crowded, plus the option on rainy/hot, ect days for a spot to get away. The view for the game is pretty crappy unless you make a reservation and sit on the window. The food is good and there's no wait, but you pay for everything you buy and it's credit card only.

    i'll assume you mean that Tech never produced NFL QB talent. Mahomes is a different cat from those other rag arm guys. He has the strongest arm in the NFL. And don't kid yourself about the "Air-Raid" offense. It's going to be the norm in the NFL. There's a reason 26 teams sent coaches to OU the past two years to learn from Lincoln Riley. Trubisky was raw because he never played/couldn't beat out a scrub and Mahomes dominated in an offense that the NFL is now adopting. Mitch might turn out fine, but he's miles behind Mahomes at this point.

    Hahn confirmed: No Eloy in '18

    Is that really the case? They have 6+ years to "make it right" to him. IMO, the Sox offered him a team friendly contract to buy out his arb years and he declined. That seems like he's chasing the money and more power to him if he bets on himself to outperform any previous offer. The Sox could offer him a way better deal next year, but no matter what he's going to the highest bidder when he reaches free agency (and if it's us he stays and if it's not he walks). I don't see the uproar.....

    2018 NFL Draft

    He might turn out to be a great player, but he was used and abused in the playoff game against OU (although he probably did injure Mayfield and change the game). Horrible at the point of attack, but has great range.

    Fantasy Football

    QUOTE (BigSqwert @ Dec 17, 2017 -> 10:04 AM) Semi-final game today and somehow I'm still alive with seemingly the worst set of WRs in fantasy playoff history. Need to start 2 from this trio: Stefon Diggs at Carolina (a pretty safe bet for 60 or 70 yards and unlikely to score; pretty tough Panthers D) Robert Woods at Seattle (1st game back from injury but was killing it before getting hurt; Seattle D with tons of injuries) Dede Westbrook vs Houston (Getting better each week as he's getting the most targets since getting healthy; Houston pass D is terrible) For the record, Minnesota is home against Cincinnati.

They are going to offer: 7 game package 2-40 game packages Full Season And the mentioned 2-20 game packages that will replace the old weekend/weekday packages.

    QUOTE (KrankinSox @ Oct 23, 2017 -> 11:33 PM) Which packages include playoff tickets? The 20 game packages get you 2-1-1 for ALDS-ALCS-WS. The 40’s get you 3-2-2.

    2018 Season Ticket Packages

    QUOTE (SoxFan2003 @ Oct 23, 2017 -> 11:34 AM) Am I reading this right? The only way to get a guaranteed Opening Day ticket with a 20 game plan is through a weekday plan? Yes, but the weekend package never got opening day. Did they have the 13 game packages last year and was that a package where you received the same seat for all 13 games?

    2018 Season Ticket Packages

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Oct 19, 2017 -> 05:05 PM) 7 fewer games $15 less. 22% price increase per game for me. Long time season ticket holders get the short stick. I have a full season so that stays the same, but my two other packages get the short stick. The weekday package get hosed the most....losing multiple prime games that go to the "Rivals". Weekend package now has 6 weekday games. Value package does look the best, but you lose all seniority privileges so you'll be sitting further back to change packages. Thanks Jerry
