    Fire Tony Chant

    Speaks to lacking that fire and motivation we've seen, team seems to be sleepwalking at times. Trailing early (and certainly can't blame that all on Keuchel anymore) can be demoralizing... if you let it get to you. Seems like that can be where a manager actually does something to get the most out of their players. Ricky's boys something something...

    It's time to put Jose out to pasture

    Man, you guys are great, baseball has such an archaic rules structure and I can never keep up.

    The new CBA nixed qualifying offers, so they're no more. But as a thought piece, I don't think this org would have offered any way out of deference/loyalty to Abreu given how much they deflate a player's value when turned down.

    Sox trying to get Moncada more aggressive

    Apparently Menechino bases his coaching philosophy on the "come on bud, just throw strikes!" coaching you hear in Little League.

    Hey, we dodged that bullet, nice!

    Outfield Defense

    And worse, it's not even a team of DHs that can mash like the Phillies did with Schwarber and Castellanos, just hitting dingers. Instead our guys are being told to slap it the other way. If you're creating a team with zero defense and speed, they at least better be let loose to swing away.

    Forgive me if this was posted elsewhere, but this ESPN story is ridiculous. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/34149317/short-handed-chicago-white-sox-understanding-their-legs-important-tell-some-players-slow-running-first-base Solution to the injury problem? Don't try so hard! Fuck this organization, man. This team makes me sad.

    I also don't want to be in a position where Tony has any influence over who we're giving up and who we're getting back. You shouldn't get to pick the music if you're leaving the party soon anyway.

    The problem is they won't recognize the decrease in gate sales and concessions until it's too late to save fan interest with a move.

    Lenyn Sosa joins the White Sox (Update Pg. 5)

    As much as it sucks for Mendick as he was just starting to hit his stride, I'm definitely comfortable if he gets Wally Pipp'ed if it means Lenyn kicks ass.

    The 3-minute official White Sox game recap on the MLB app not only included the audio from last night's game but also this handy graphic in case you had it on mute. It's one thing to mention it on a broadcast. You have to make effort to include it *with a screen graphic* in your brief game recap.

    Nice Membership, Soxtalk

    If we're talking membership purges, I'm sure there are some names we can throw out there 😈

    What’s Vaughn’s offensive ceiling?

    In my mind, I feel Vaughn and Spencer Torkelson are intrinsically linked based on their college pedigree. Watching Tork absolutely struggle while Vaughn continues to get better is encouraging to me. And yes I know it's unfair to compare Tork this year to Vaughn this year, and yes I know SSS limitations, etc., but I think they'll be a good career comparison to watch. And fwiw, I still think Tork will be a monster. I just hope that means Vaughn is even better

    I am old enough to remember…

    Picking up the Yermin bit, I'm old enough to remember when Tony *defended our opponent and divisional rival* for throwing at our players following the 3-0 HR.

    Sosa and Sanchez could help Sox this year

    Also my mind went to when Avery Weems was suddenly listed higher on our internal prospect list right before we moved him. Pump the tires a bit to drum up interest.
