    Reinsdorf’s U.S. Cellular Field Lease In Jeopardy?

    QUOTE (Milkman delivers @ Oct 25, 2011 -> 02:26 PM) But, is it also not the norm to have such an incredibly low rent and such a large profit from parking? you seem to forget that your parking pass allows you to TAILGATE. so there may be insurance, security, and cleanup costs associated with tailgating. go take a look at bears parking prices, especially on the secondary market. the sox seem like a deal then.

    White Sox Sued for Sex Discrimination

    QUOTE (PlaySumFnJurny @ Jul 29, 2011 -> 08:56 AM) http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2011-07...-discrimination From everything I've ever read and heard, the White Sox are a pretty progressive organization, and JR would not tolerate discrimination of this sort. One never knows without actual facts of course, but as someone who deals with these claims for a living, most are BS. Failure to promote claims are notoriously difficult to prove. there are a LOT of female sox employees. and they seem to move UP quite a bit. the lady who oversaw the 2003 ASG from the sox side was a ticket rep in 1996. 7 years from selling tickets to being a top exectutive overseeing a major operation(the 2003 ASG brought in a projected 53 million into the sox coffers). I say the claim's BS.

    QUOTE (Milkman delivers @ Jul 28, 2011 -> 11:40 AM) I've never once heard this nickname, but I assume from context that it's Konerko? I hate when people insert their own nicknames into discussions so I have to go out of my way to figure out who they're referring to. I will almost guarantee that Ozzie burns bridges on the way out. He's (or his ghost writer, Oney) going to drudge up personal clubhouse stuff, and I kind of hope he does so that others can mention his own personal problems. And yes, it will suck that Hawk gets a statue. boner's short for bonerko

    QUOTE (Stan Bahnsen @ Jul 28, 2011 -> 12:52 PM) Hawk is a polarizing figure to be sure. There's boatloads to criticize, with umpiring complaints at the top of the list for me. However, if you have the Extra Innings package or you're a frequent traveller to other MLB towns, you may realize that he's rather good at his job from an entertainment standpoint. There's SO much blandness out there it's numbing. agreed. the former announcer for seattle(who died during the offseason) was HORRIBLE beyond belief. and most color guys are pretty bland too. ron darling comes to mind

    Mark Teahen Appreciation Thread

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Jul 27, 2011 -> 07:36 PM) He is actually a very good guy from what I hear. Its too bad his contract blows. blame kenny for that f***ing mistake. let's lock up a guy for 3 million a YEAR when he's not even worth 3 million over 3 years....

    QUOTE (lasttriptotulsa @ Jul 28, 2011 -> 10:41 AM) I agree on Robin. I just don't think Dye should be a part of it. To have your number retired, you should have to be a borderline HOF. robin's not a hof'er. let's be honest. but he's a fan favorite. same as dye

    QUOTE (lasttriptotulsa @ Jul 28, 2011 -> 10:24 AM) So would retire #30 for Raines/Maggs. Or #8 for Belle/Bo Jackson/Tony PHilips? Maybe 45 for Jenks/El Caballo/Jordan. I mean if you combine players, you could have plenty of great retired numbers. albert belle will never be honored by this team. in fact, brooks boyer made a joke about him at blog night also, tony phillips? really? jordan? cmon.... one thing that has bubbled in this thread i agree totally...sox need an honest to goodness HOF again...and not just as the entry-way to teh gift shop. it sickens me that you need to be a scout seat holder to see the former sox HOF items in any shape or form. and that STHs get one chance(grinder bash) to see the same items.

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jul 28, 2011 -> 09:55 AM) Especially not that number. Not in this city. You want to retire #23 in Chicago you better have done something historic. ventura - one of the best sox 3b ever. and a member of the all-century team. dye - world series mvp, put up good numbers in his five year span. yeah, teh 2nd half of 2009 sucked. again, i would have them retired TOGETHER. how hard is that to comprehend?

    QUOTE (SoxAce @ Jul 28, 2011 -> 09:23 AM) Might as well put Scotty Pods out there while were at it.... he had two good seasons with the club. his 2006 and 2007 seasons were forgettable. aj, konerko, and buerls have been the franchise faces for a long time. with konerko appraoching 400 hrs, and with a decent shot at 500(ina sox uniform, noless), and all of buehrle's accomplishments, it's a no-brainer to retire thier numbers and place eventual statues up in thier honor.

    QUOTE (Quinarvy @ Jul 26, 2011 -> 09:24 PM) Paulie will have a statue one day, Buehrle too. Dye...no. I think eventually, AJ, Boner, and Buehrle will have retired #'s and statues.

    I've always advocated a Venture/Dye joint retirement of #23. Hawks have done that with #3 for Pilote and Magnusson.
