    Rick Hahn and his Trades

    An astonishing nearly $66M of the existing $92M payroll comes off the books after this season, which includes potentially Abreu, but most certainly includes Nova, Herrera, Alonso, Jay, Colome, Banuelos, and Nate Jones. So they will have the money to spend, and we have Hahn’s claim that the “money will be spent”, sooooooooo...I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens! What could go wrong!

    Not the Yankees announcers. Plus, your own eyesight should have helped you out on this one.

    It absolutely was not. Look where Jose cut it off. Right in line to home plate.

    He threw to second base where there was no Sox player at the bag to accept his throw.

    Leury’s throw looked like it might have had a chance to get Voit at home.

    Bunting in the second inning when you have the lead. WTF & SMH

    Not one hard hit ball in the first inning!

    Two Kansas City specials to start the game.

    White Sox Winner! .500!?!

    Everyone in the lineup had a hit, and the bullpen pitched well the last three innings. Good team win all the way around!

    Sox vs Yankees 6/14 - 7:10PM

    Will you just STFU already! You’re the wet blanket on top of what has been a truly great night of baseball. So enough out of you already.

    Sox vs Yankees 6/14 - 7:10PM

    The one where it was raining in the top of the 7th when Giolito needlessly went to the mound to pitch again.

    Michael Kay on the Yankees broadcast: ”Giolito pitched six innings, went into the 7th...probably shouldn’t have.”

    It’s raining. We’re up by nine in the 7th inning. And he’s over the 100 pitch count. TAKE HIM OUT!

    Michael Kay on the Yankees broadcast: “I think the Cubs are going to regret that trade.”

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    That all depends. That depends on whether Hahn still considers the team to be in "talent acquisition" mode, a term he has used frequently the past couple of years.

    Disco Demolition T-Shirt Night

    So one teen-aged African American at the time, in a stadium of 50,000 plus people, is able to definitively declare that all "LPs" being thrown out on the field were from "black artists? That the gazillion records being thrown "were clearly not disco"? One teenager says this and you are able to reach this conclusion about "simmering racial resentment"? And you are able to declare Dahl some sort of alt-right/white nationalist and men's right supporters just because he said "We were just letting off a little steam. We were just having fun"? Really? Wow. I'd be interested in hearing what planet you live on if you reach these types of conclusions with so little evidence to back them up.

    Disco Demolition T-Shirt Night

    Ugh - no, it was not a "fearful response" to any of that. Don't overthink what this was all about. It was a gimmick promotion thought up by Mike Veeck, Bill's son, as yet one of many other promotions they came up with to try and draw people into Comiskey Park at a time when the team really stunk. They had a wild promotion almost every single night back in those days. The disco fad was coming to an end anyway, and so that combined with this new, young, popular DJ in town in Steve Dahl, who had recently gotten fired by a station that turned from rock to disco, provided the perfect storm for this particular promotion. And that was it - the gimmick-driven Veeck partnered with a rock-driven DJ whose only beef with disco was that it led to a recent firing. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Disco Demolition T-Shirt Night

    He is, and I think one of the unique aspects of that particular night is that you had three well-known Chicago icons in the house at the same time - Dahl, Bill Veeck, and of course, Harry Caray. Well, four, if you include Nancy Faust, and why not!
