    Sox vs Indians, Monday April 12th, 7pm

    We really showed the league we mean business by not playing the service manipulation game with Vaughn so that we could get 14 ABs and bench him after every out. Gonna look back in October and pat ourselves on the back for that one.

    I'm going to enjoy the White Sox this year

    It's possible to be super excited about the team (which I am) AND also upset that the 85 year old cheap fuck of an owner isn't capitalizing on this once in a possibly lifetime cheap roster by spending money & hiring his fossil drinking buddy to coach (which I am) The choice shouldn't have been: trust a young guy or sign a shaky veteran that will likely fail. It should have been: offer blank checks out to the top free agents that fill the couple real holes on the roster & use those young guys as depth (which we are extremely lacking on).
  3. It's not really about "did they spend what they were trying to spend on Machado". Its: "the window is wide f'in open right now"...and they're rolling with no right fielder, a rookie DH, 2 young wildcards in the rotation, all while having a cheap core. Holes could EASILY be filled by JR parting with a couple of his coins. Instead what I fear is this time next year we go in saying "man if we just get a right fielder, a DH, and another starter and we just might make it to the ALCS"

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    Kopech - start in the minors to get confidence back and the extra control year then plop into the rotation. Move to bullpen for playoffs. Crochet- wait out his inevitable TJ, hope that it hits early on so the surgery can happen asap.
  5. I do love that the needs going into this off season (RF, SP, Reliever) are going to be exactly the same next off season because of how cheap the shit owner of this team is.
  6. 1 year rental. We now need Jerry to pony up for RF and he won't so...neat

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    2 of the last 3 managers of the Sox had to be talked into managing if Old Tone is hired. Truly remarkable

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Started looking at who will still be on the team in 2024 after 3 disastrous years with Larussa and they fire the 80 year old to start over fresh yet again.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    It was almost impossible to screw this up and yet it sounds like they found a way. In utter disbelief we're hiring a drunk senior citizen who hasn't coached in over a decade & failed in the front office to oversee the best group of young talent this franchise has ever had. Completely and totally insane. Nothing says "change the game" and a bunch of young exciting players than Tony Fucking Larussa.

    An honest question about Vaughn

    Dayan Viciedo played RF for many years. My vote would be Vaughn/Eloy/Abreu play some combo of LF/1B/DH. And get a decent RF so the outfield isn't an entire black hole defensively.
  11. What an absolute joke having Edwin in this lineup. Either A) Nobody above Ricky has the ability to tell him to fuck off with these shit lineups B) The people above Ricky agree the .100 hitting Edwin needs to be in the lineup over Mcann (or literally anyone else on the roster)

    JR worried about 2021 season

    As always and forever: Fuck Jerry Reinsdorf.
  14. You keep pointing to "people won't believe it" but its not really based on beliefs. In the Hollywood accounting examples you can see the games being played to turn things into losses on paper. There's not really any disputing that and the same would go for baseball. Just because its not technically an issue 'legally' in the books doesn't mean its actually losses. Also doesn't factor in any of the sweetheart deals these teams have with cities for their stadiums. For once the owners just have to eat it, sucks for them but that's the situation we're in. If a team randomly stopped drawing fans they'd still have to pay all their contracts out, they couldn't just argue to cancel the season. No difference here, there's some risk in owning a team and it happened this year. Ultimately I just will never feel sorry for a billionaire owner losing the equivalent of a few hundred dollars to me or you its just absurd.
  15. 100% owners and there's not really any argument against that IMO. They own teams that print money - but are still technically a 'business' and sometimes businesses lose money. Eat the lost, start the game back up, and get on with life. Instead they've been spoiled for decades with a 0 risk investment they feel entitled to never lose a dime. Fuck em
