  1. The counter-point to this argument is that these guys only get to do their job for 20 years at best. Many for a lot less than that. And a majority of them aren't getting 100 or 200 or 300 million dollar contracts. The average salary for an MLB player is "only" 4 million. But the average career span is only 5.6 years... So these guys have to take what they can get, when they can get it.
  2. Except the Sox where that would only bring the payroll up to around 60 million or so. They'd still have a ton of money to make more moves.

    Message Boards of Other Teams

    I know of one site that has all the Chicago teams on it, including a Cubs board. Not sure what the rules are in regards to posting links to other sites though.
  4. First rule of mod fight club... Got it.

    Thome flew to Vegas to meet with Harper

    Huh? Thome is older than both of them and was 35 when he came to the Sox. Same age as LaRoche was when he got here. Dunn was 31. And what does star appeal have to do with how bad they hit?

    Thome flew to Vegas to meet with Harper

    To be fair, Thome had a lot more AB's as a DH before he came to the Sox than the 2 Adams had combined.
  8. So where would the second team be? Vegas?

    White Sox Hiring for Analytics Department

    Not necessarily. I spent about 15 years as a mainframe programmer using mostly Cobol and PL/1. Now I'm in a job where I'm using mostly Vb.net and SQL, although I didn't have much experience with either when I first started. Now we are switching to a system where I'm going to have to learn some C#. There are some things that are different, but once you have the basics down, most programming languages are pretty similair. I once took a free online class to learn Python and picked it up pretty quickly.

    STAR WARS Everything

    I bought the DVD when it came out and haven't even opened it yet. I was kinda the same way with Rogue One. Never really in much of a hurry to watch it. Now with the Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, I watched them as soon as I was able to. I really wanted to get to the theaters to see them but never did. I'm not sure if it's because the other movies aren't part of the "main" story or what. I've never really gotten into any of the expanded universe (books, comics, TV shows, etc...) either.

    2017 Bowling thread

    Our adult/youth league ended a couple of weeks ago. I think I ended up with a 199 or 200 average. I'd have to look it up again. We ended up middle of the pack, which is pretty good since we were bowling scratch. The averages of the bowlers in the top 5 teams were all 200+. Now HS bowling has started up again. Had tryouts the last 2 days and first practice is tomorrow. First tournament is the Friday after Thanksgiving. Our girls have a lot to live up to being the back to back state and national champs. Although I guess the publicity is good since they had 19 girls trying out for the team this year. That's the most I've seen since my daughter has been part of the program. Some of the other schools can barely get half that number to try out for their teams.
