    Fire Rick Hahn

    There are so many parties to blame for this disaster of a a season, but Hahn is chief amongst them with one of the worst off-seasons in recent memory for what should have been a legit championship contending team. A big part of that is his failure to build quality scouting and player development functions, which has stalled our pipeline of talent and has lead to poor acquisitions at the major league level. There have been some improvements recently (I like what Shirley is doing in the draft), but it’s too little too late IMO. It’s time to hold the top decision maker accountable and that means Rick Hahn has to go.

    8/12 Gamethread: Tigers @ Sox, Norris v. Kopech

    Happened with the Bulls. I agree it’s unlikely, but there is no internal candidate to replace KW / Hahn.

    Jerry needs to give someone like Chernoff a President of Baseball title and let him clean house.

    The worst part is Hahn has done nothing to shake things up. I get Tony is untouchable, but then go acquire a player, release someone, or call up a kid from AAA. Hahn doing nothing is the definition of insanity.

    8/11 Games

    I’ll keep saying it, but we’re going to have three top 100 prospects this off-season between Colson, Colas, & Ramos.

    Petition for New Banner

    As has become clear in recent days, the Soxtalk banner is cursed and is quickly taking out all our key players. Changes are needed ASAP to save Jose & Tim from certain injury. However, as @CaliSoxFanViaSWside alluded to, perhaps we can use it’s immense power for good by replacing the current six players with various guys across the organization who have contributed to this rough stretch. As such, I see six clear favorites to be sacrificed to the banner: Uncle Jerry - The primary culprit. He forced a manager on his GM and may have created chaos within the organization. Additionally, his insane aversion to risk may have prevented Hahn from procuring true impact talent this offseason. Rick Hahn - While likely handcuffed by Jerry & Tony to some extent, Rick still failed in many areas this offseason. Most notably, he failed to add a much needed SP and did nothing improve our weakness against tough RHP. Much of this rests on him. La Russa - An aging, old-school manager stuck in his ways. It’s clear his best days are behind him and his poor decision-making is quickly becoming more & more costly. His recent lineup decisions have pointed at conflict between him and the front office. Leury Legend - A very average, but versatile player, Legend is the victim of a manager all too fond of him. Being overused and recently high in the lineup has sparked much outrage and has added credibility to conspiracy theories of organizational in-fighting.. Velesquez - He was the “pitching depth” that Hahn mentioned prioritizing coming out of the lockout. His struggles are not surprising in the least given his track record and fact he was DFAed last season. If he survives the All-Star break color me surprised. Keuchel - Last is the “crafty” lefty. Two years removed from a strong season, Dallas has watched his stuff regress and become cannon fodder. With an $18M salary and habit of blaming teammates, Keuchel is one of the more unliable guys on the roster. Who would you like to see sacrificed to the banner? Am I missing anyone of note? Post your ideas below and please voice your support for this petition! Time is of the essence.

    Fire Rick Hahn

    Actually, I just looked at Naquin’s stats so far with the Mets and I really want Rick Hahn gone. Three bombs and 0.7 fWAR in 10 games!?! For reference, Vaughn is at 0.8 fWAR in 88 games despite a 131 wRC+. And no, I’m not suggesting Naquin would have been the perfect addition, but he was a legit upgrade that would have cost us basically nothing. Alas, Hahn had to pretend he had a shot at Ohtani.

    Gallo already fixed! (mostly kidding but still mad we didn’t add a LH hitting RF)

    Lol…this shit is just comical

    Fire Tony Chant

    Don’t want this limited to the game-thread. At this point, fire Tony & Frank and let Cueto have both jobs in addition being one of our better starters.
  16. Chicago White Sox

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    Exactly. Any other organization would try something, but unfortunately was to keep trying the same thing and hope for a different result.

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    I am a Bears fan, but enjoy watching any NFL game whereas have little interest in watching baseball games I don’t have a vested interest in.

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    No doubt, but here we are sitting on 1.5 games back of the division lead with half the team underperforming. Even with a flawed roster (thanks Rick!) we should be winning this shit division. Unfortunately a mix of La Russa, Menechino, and poor player leadership is doing us dirty right now.

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    I think Grandal is the only guy who appears to have totally lost his ability. I’m not sure what’s going on with Giolito, but maybe he’s not going to return to form this year. But I think a different manager & hitting coach get a lot more out of these guys and in this shitty division a few more games would have us in 1st place.

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    You’re probably right. Just sucks because there is enough talent to win this shitty division, but just feels like the light switch is never going to turn on for us.

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    I love the Sox…not baseball. This team makes it hard to want to watch them, but I’ll never switch over to the Cubs or another team. I’ll just find other things to do with my team until football season starts.

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    What’s amazing is the Twins are just begging us to steal this division, but these guys just don’t want it. I have never seen a Sox team with such little drive.

    Jerry Reinsdorf should be embarrassed by the shit-show of an organization he has created. Fuck that dude and all the cronies that work for him.

    Lenyn better keep hitting bombs or Sleepy Tony is going to send his ass right back to the bench.
