    Will the Sox be able to retain J Ben?

    Singleton took a tv analyst role when he left the Sox. He’s all over the ocho’s baseball broadacasts. Doing occasional radio games is part of that. Jason is a part time play by play guy. For guys like him, a local gig is the dream. It pays more in the long term. Dave wills LOVED doing pre and post for the Sox, but he left for a play by play gig. He said in an old WSI interview (before he left for Tampa), that was always the goal. Play by play. If the Sox gig opened, he would have loved it, but at the time Rooney was going nowhere. Jason is going nowhere. If anything, you may see a part time broadcast crew(which is not unusual now) fill in the gaps if espn has him do more baseball

    Machado do-over

    I agreed to his point. Your comment was not needed or wanted.
  3. Tatis was worth 27 million dollars of James shields’ salary and getting Erik Johnson the hell out of dodge. Thats all jerry cares about. The jones trade clears payroll to increase profit. Losing the international pool money is nothing to him. Because that “free money” isn’t free. It’s mlb telling teams what they are looked to spend as international signing bonuses.

    No excuse. But the Sox have a reason they won’t spend. It’s called jerry reinsdorf.

    You should read before you post. And not just my reply.

    Machado do-over

    That’s exactly what happened in San Diego and Philadelphia. The two teams with the largest increase in attendance from 2018 to 2019.
  7. The Sox had severe international pool penalties for signing Robert. They cannot exceed a certain amount of international bonus pool money in 2018 2019 and 2020. They are trading gift cards for restaurants that are in another town for a coupon for one in their town. Jones salary was picked up by tejas. The pool money was just a cherry on top.

    Chris Sale

    I have a question. Why would the white Sox, who TRADED sale three years ago for kopech, moncada, basabe, AND 60 million dollars(Boston paid for moncada’s bonus and penalty), want to trade any top prospect for an older and beat up Chris sale that is owed 150 million dollars over the next five years?

    Free Agency - How confident are you?

    Not at all. Not with this front office.

    Sox fire Matt Lisle/Matt Lisle quits (?)

    Good for you.

    Machado do-over

    Depends on how much you think he would want to play for a sad sack organization like the white Sox. Don’t forget he suffered in Miami for years under a horrible owner.

    Sox fire Matt Lisle/Matt Lisle quits (?)

    If rick cleans house, he’s the next to get fired. The jerry loyalty plan applies to most of his front office. Look at ken Williams.

    What? So he can opt out next offseason?

    Machado do-over

    Look at the bad sponsorship deals the Sox have right now thanks to a team that is less than mediocre. You don’t think a superstar contract won’t make the next round of sponsors pay more to be with a “winner”?! Look at how much the hawks have milked their period of greatness into cash money for the org. They have sponsors for EVERYTHING. And those are multi year deals. And don’t give me the “if the contracts hamper you in year 10 “ crap ken Williams. The Sox will be looking for a new stadium in ten years, and the tv deal ends in five years. If they want to win those lucrative negotiations, then you need to be a winning club and make state legislatures and tv networks fall in love with you.

    Machado do-over

    Machado and Harper are both earning their contracts. Both the pads and phils have experienced box office growth, and ratings are up, which translates to increased revenue (I believe both clubs have stakes in their cable networks). PLUS, the renewed interest creates long term sponsorship deals that bring in money for years. Does anyone remember that Miller extended thier Sox sponsorship for TEN YEARS in the wake of the World Series win? Or that 7 god damm 11 paid the Sox HALF A MILLION DOLLARS to move gametimes up six minutes? That was directly connected to the club being “relevant”. I think the Sox would have benefited greatly by signing either player, just lookin at the financial side. But jerry was cheap timid and stupid with “his”money.

    Could the White Sox hire Dave Dombrowski?

    Is the owner still jerry reinsdorf? yes? then no.

    2020 White Sox Season Ticket Changes

    The Sox have a 10 month payment plan option. Which means you can stretch your payments until JULY 2020(December there is no payment due). As for the price increase? The 2018 ticket had a TWELVE PERCENT INCREASE DUE TO THE SOX CHARGING TAX ON YOUR TICKETS ABOVE FACE VALUE. which means that your $10 ticket is now 11.20 instead of 8.90 plus tax.

    Who are these people...

    That is one hell of a job. Assuming a three hour game, you’re making a bit over $15 an hour in 1990’s money.
