    The Yermin-Vaughn-Abreu Conundrum

    They should to turn him into an outfielder. This organization has no shortage of players who's weakness is catching a baseball.

    4-7 GT: CWS @ SEA (3:10 PM CT)

    Hate it when the defense knocks our starters out.

    4-6 GT: CWS @ SEA (9:10 PM CT)

    That inning was strange. It went smooth.

    Yermin moves quite well for his size.
  5. Let's all chip in and buy them out,

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    How does one now define cooling off for a guy like Yermin.

    4-6 GT: CWS @ SEA (9:10 PM CT)

    Same here. For health reasons I'm in bed 9 pm and I live in the West Coast viewing area. I miss those days when Mark B was on the mound and a game would end around 2 hours. I'm sure they could come up with all sorts of crazy ideas to speed up the game but it's a much different generation of baseball.

    Chill out guys

    The game day threads were pretty bad when scrolling to get past members attacking each other. I don't remember it being that bad.

    4/4 GT- 7:37 CT- Sox vs Halos

    That means plenty of stupid mistakes young players make. We've seen Robert do an Eloy impersonation.
  10. How about fans losing their allegiance.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Agree. It's not the end of the world. Maybe they feared backlash of hiring Hinch,

    Doesn't have to be.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    No it sucks because it brings politics into a non political forum.
  14. Baseball Stupidity 101 - recommend former players with no managerial experience.

    An honest question about Vaughn

    I never understood the need to draft a 1st basemen. This organization seems to only produce guys that have defensive weaknesses so let's make them a 1B/DH . The world doesn't end if they keep Eloy in RF as long as there is a defense replacement in later innings.

    State of Chicago baseball: the tipping point

    I grew up as a Cub fan towards the end of the 60's. I could watch the last inning of the game after school. My dad was a Yankees fan and we started watching Sox baseball at night. That's when my allegiance changed. I still love those red pinstripe unis.
  17. Discuss. I think he survives on the success of more than a decade ago. I'm not sure he is effective anymore. Sometimes a change to make a change may be necessary. If it were like the NFL or NBA he would not have lasted this long.

    The effectiveness of Don Cooper

    If they fired Ricky and a new manager has the option of choosing his staff I think Coop stays,

    Play-off First

    I guess the good part is there's a lot of youth on this team that got exposed to post season baseball. This will be a plus in the future.

    Sox pitching development

    Fans don't seem to have patience when it comes to MLB. It's not like the NFL or NBA where a drafted player can make an immediate impact.

    Sox pitching development

    It seems like the hard throwing pitcher has a shorter career. Kids in the minors get shocked when they face major league hitters who can hit your 98 heater. We may never see a 300 game winner again.

    Will the Front Office Fire Renteria?

    Not with this organization,

    We are mad at the wrong Rick

    Hitters do and it's usually out of the park. I don't think he's figured it yet that guys in the majors can turn on a 98mph fastball.

    Never trade with Oakland either.
