    Kansas City Royals Sale

    There was talk of them proposing changes after the park got financing, but chicago’s Infrastructure would not allow a design below grade(street level) but make make no mistake the oriole park design was unique to Baltimore(especially the office building) and was designed after the Sox deal

    The astros front office needed a hurricane AND a player revolt to get them to spend money.

    Kansas City Royals Sale

    In seasons where they had a severe cap penalty on international signings. It was like a gift card for a store in bankruptcy. You can’t spend it.

    How could they? They (HOK)were designing oriole park in 1988, long after the city and state pledged to work together at 35th and shields!

    It just means the Sox could sell for much more than that. They are currently “worth “ 1.6 billion.

    They NEVER had an oriole park design. And especially not for the nebulous “south loop”. There WAS, however, a design for the lake/Clinton area for a dual use stadium with the bears. And mike mcsucky flat out refused it because the bears are “connected to the cubs” jerry wanted Addison, and even bought the land in advance. Chicago was never a serious thought until Addison died in the ballot box and Jim Thompson pledged state money.

    Noisy Ballparks

    Hockey moves too fast to have noisemakers. Those fans are literally trying to watch the game. Baseball? It could use a lil more excitement.

    Notice what the Sox call them. INVESTORS. not owners. The sox are a hobby of a (now) very rich businessman. Yes, he wants them to win, but not at all costs. And always HIS way. Rick hopeless got the approval to rebuild because there’s a way to make money off cost certainty, even when fan revenue drops.

    More "Hahnspeak" on Robert/Madrigal/Collins coming up

    Anything rick Hahn says now I read as “I’m an idiot”. so many things the last 2 seasons he just talks out of his ass instead of saying “Sox gonna Sox”

    Why would it? They get checks in the mail every year from the profit.

    I think the Sox can get Quintana back

    The $$$$ will be spent!

    That was as a “rookie”. NPB isn’t the same as signing Keuchel.

    Jerry already has morons operating his baseball team.

    Unless it was in the baseball operations staff, your chances to be gm were between fuck and no.

    Not the Sox.

    Lesser (and older) pitchers are getting paid more than him. The cubs WILL take the option. There is no guarantee Hamels will come back, especially at a discount. They NEED a q type pitcher. Why get rid of the actual q?

    Sox don’t offer four year deals to outside free agent pitchers.

    The Sox ticket prices have been this low since 2013. And all but one year attendance has decreased.

    But manny wanted a record breaker as well as the opt out. Things the Sox don’t do.

    The $$$$ will be spent!

    There’s a ton of qualifiers on that. Yankee and Red Sox series ON THE WEEKEND with the added benefit of good(for Chicago) weather, and a lot of giveaways. The “free shit” crowd has been out in full force this year. The second game the second game of the year sold more tickets than opening day because everyone just had to have the hoodie.
