  1. Carlos Lee & Mags probably putnup some silly numbers as a double play duo

    The juiced ball

    I think they didn’t like the early 10’s with the pitchers dominating. Man that was cool to me though. I have a theory that this is probably a joint effort between MLB and the Players aassociation to extend careers back closer to 40. Hitting 33-35 years old and losing your job isn’t cool so I definitely think this was an effort to extend the careers of the modern baseball player back to what they were. Is that crazy?

    I don't think we can dump all this in Renteria's lap

    Is there room in his lap for Gio’s lat injury?

    Sox at Twinkies

    Fuck. Not the injury, that doesn’t bother me, I’m sure he’ll be fine. Not looking forward to all the opinions about it and how it’s somebody’s fault in the organization. Or wait the whole organization, top to bottom Jerry needs to go or hire a competent...blah blah blah

    Correct. And I think he was directed to “compete” his first few years but of course there wasn’t enough money to supplement 3 core players

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Ehh. Contreras and Baez were Hendry’s guys. Bryant was a layup pick at #2- even I couldn’t mess that up. Schwarber & Russell are pretty one dimensional or platoon fringey busts. They got super lucky it was a down year in the league, the super teams were a year away, almost every pitcher on their roster had a career year, and Cleveland was decimated by injuries.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    He outspent every other team to big a World Series. They laid out almost half a billion in total contracts to win the first one and have gone over 3/4 billion to try to sustain it. Think about how much a half billion is. That’s the amount of money they promised to win that World Series. There’s no skill in that

    Forget fine-tuning the skills yourself- you just need a good enough knowledge to sell it. Find the people who spent all the time learning, getting certified etc. and subcontract them to complete the work. You want independence right, so you need to spend your time finding the jobs for the guys to complete. You’re too valuable to be in the field doing the work. You need to be driving around all day finding work for the IT guys, flooring crew, painters etc. whatever you decide to get into. All it costs is $300 bucks depending on the state Get your insurance AFTER you sell the first job- no reason to start your annual clock before you need it. Id do painting to get your feet wet in business. Everybody needs it and plenty of local crews doing it. Sell an exterior paint job for 5k to somebody and get it done for less. Then do the IT stuff or whatever it is that sounds like it takes a bit more overhead once you have painting cash flowing for you. Now get off your ass and go the secretary of states office tmrw so you can thank me in a month.

    Dude. Pay your $300 to the Secretary of State and incorporate. File your S-Corp paperwork right away and pay somebody a couple hundred to make a logo. Go get a bank account and sell one of those services. You don’t need employees or equipment or an office. Go sell a job, however long it takes and then go get the insurance. Subcontract with companies that provide materials. You can do all this from a home office with basically zero overhead. Just gotta hustle.

    If gaining your independence trumps everything then you have to be able to offer the world something. It’s always funny when somebody says, “I don’t want to be in sales!” While we all know they mean they don’t want to be a salesman, the truth is we’re all in sales. You have to be able to offer a good or a service to live, so why not be the one collecting the dough. It doesn’t have to be proprietary either. You can copy the guy next door- there’s plenty of room for everybody in the self-employed sector. It’s just a change in mindset as Hawk would say.

    9/10 | Royals @ White Sox | Junis vs Nova | 7:10pm

    This may be the best way to describe it. Thank you.

    For the Coop Haters

    Woulda been cool if this was Hansen’s first year in the bigs. Sure looked like an incredible pick for a while.

    2020 RF options

    Maybe the Jay and Alonso moves were correct. All they had was Palka to fill two positions right? They had no veteran leadership for these kids. Maybe they thought between Palka Alonso and Jay they’d cover RF and DH. Well it went to shit but it never really mattered if they performed because this year was meaningless anyway. They needed Ivan Nova type guys to cover ABs just like IP. Somebody has to play every day

    2020 RF options

    Yes but I think every GM every offseason is TRYING to get the best players possible at every position. You have to try. Whats cool about being patient with this rebuild is it looks like the White Sox have a very very legit chance of having allstar talent at almost every position. You can squint and see it. You don’t even have to squint so much any more. Don’t worry brother, the Sox are about to be really good.

    9/2/19 White Sox @Cleveland MLB Free Game of the Day

    Haha for sure. I kinda liked it. Does it erase all the bunting and Jon Jay batting cleanup mistakes? Probably not.
  17. Yolmer is clearly the superior player. WAR is perfect!
  18. Lol I dunno but I like where you’re going! Those are all reasonable ideas that belong on the table of discussion. 😂 Im just saying there is probably a way to make the kickoff the most exciting part of the game. 8 vs 2? You get one blocker and maybe the defenders are each limited to a 10 yard vertical zone?
  19. I would like kickoffs to be the most dangerous 20 seconds in sports. Whatever it takes. That shit could be electric.

    Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal

    The possibly exists. This is the White Sox.

    8/29 Games

    Yep. I too think a big big trade is coming
  22. I can co-sign this post of yours. Ideally he’s the DH but I don’t think there’s any harm in him being our 1B next year
  23. No you cant😉. Look I get what you’re saying. Everyone does. I’m just saying negotiation and getting what you want in a deal depends on the other party being in a certain state of mind. Screw a man’s wife and you’re probably not getting what you want, even with lopsided terms. The opposite is true as well. We want the opposite here. I’m asking you to think outside the box. We all get the “money talks” aspect of negotiating. It’s the smart stuff we need to consider as well. Like signing their brothers and cousins to contracts 😂
  24. Part of me thinks calling Robert and Madrigal up in September and then all these guys gelling together reeeeeeaaaaallly helps guys like Gio and Moncada sign friendlier extensions. Its definitely a non-zero possibility that helps.
