    8/1 Sox vs Royals GT

    Pretty cool that Eloy and Luis both got their first four-hit games of their careers on the same night.

    7/26 GT - Twins at Sox - 1:10pm

    Well, for the first time in a very long time, we can be very confident in an offense completely capable of getting back into this one. Game has a chance to be very exciting with eight innings still to go.

    Jason Bennetti Haters Club

    Do you actually listen to any of the broadcasts featuring these two in the booth? They have exhibited extraordinary chemistry in their broadcasting relationship, particularly in the past few years over the “rebuild” when the on-field product has been anything close to desirable. They have both been vocal in their agreed-upon view of the team’s potential going forward. BTW - anyone in agreement with SS2K5 that there is “just zero chemistry between” Jason & Stoney?

    JR worried about 2021 season

    Set my feelings aside. Again, 40 year anniversary of the guy as the owner of the team we love. Where’s the outpouring of love and appreciation for the guy? Where is it? Bill Veeck, with far fewer years as owner even through two stints as owner, is far more beloved by the fan base than this owner. Why is that? How can one spend four decades in this kind of position and yet have near-to-zero in terms of fan love?

    40 years of being the owner of the team, and yet no semblance of being beloved by the fan base. None whatsoever. Why do you think that is?
  10. Absolutely terrific post! 😅
  11. As a super sub, he’ll be a valuable component in the upcoming run this team is getting ready to embark upon over the next several years.

    He’s currently doing a terrific interview on ESPN with the crew.

    First off, hi Fathom - very happy to see your name again. And yes, forgot about the broadcasting company whose telecast I’m watching right now.

    There was literally no home run call by ESPN.

    JR worried about 2021 season

    Well, who knows, right? Maybe the honorable Chairman is just disappointed that something of the magnitude of a pandemic has overshadowed what would have been a magnificent celebration this year throughout Chicagoland of his 40th anniversary as owner of our Sox. With the cult-like following he's built with the fan base over the past four decades through his tireless dedication to the fan experience, there undoubtedly would have been ticker tape parades held down Michigan Avenue in his honor, a "Jerry Reinsdorf Appreciation Day" dedicated by the governor, Jerry Reinsdorf t-shirts and coffee mugs distributed throughout - it would have been a whole year of one exciting event after another to gratefully thank this man for all he has done for and brought to this franchise these past 40 years. Maybe Year 41 is when we can all get around to doing just that.

    Not Steve Cishek: White Sox could be “Big Time” buyers this offseason

    Well, thank god SOMEONE’S in regular season mode by now!
  19. Fireballer with "low effort" delivery. You have to like that profile.

    Harper actually loved his meeting w/ the Sox

    So they flew Thome down to Vegas for this meeting, Harper “raves” about the meeting, there are Bryce Harper banners making loops around the United Center at the time, the typical big spending ball clubs are all on the sidelines, he would have filled a huge hole on and off the field, and they DIDN’T make a formal offer after all of that? How is that possible?

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    There is no denying that Jose has had and continues to have a very positive impact on three of our greatest young players in Moncada, Eloy, and now Robert.

    KW says "no Puig"

    Not sure why you keep saying this. We are the CHICAGO White Sox. Not the Indianapolis White Sox, not the Des Moines White Sox. CHICAGO. Just because the collective record of the team over several decades (read: very little winning) has led to the under-development of a fan base, doesn’t negate the team’s large market existence. Sustainable winning such as this franchise has never experienced fixes that problem. The base will grow just like it did for the Bulls and Blackhawks after their respective successful runs. Unless you are claiming the Sox can never maximize a large market revenue stream either in ticket sales, merchandise sales, TV/radio fees, or corporate sponsor fees - no matter how successful the team becomes - then this “mid market” BS is just that - BS.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    Well, no, I’m not projecting anyone’s bat based on their defensive prowess. What I’m saying is I’m perfectly fine with the Sox going one more year with Jose at first base before he gives way to Vaughn, and then Jose filling the DH role in the final two years of the contract. As the reigning RBI champion of the American League who also hit 33 homers while posting an .834 OPS last year, he’s given no indication that he’s not able to deliver that level of production through his age 35 season. If he was EE’s age and they offered him a three year contract, then yes, that would be concerning. But he’s not. He’s “only” 33, and with the type of protection he’s finally going to get in the Sox’ lineup over the next few years, his production at the plate will more than likely be one of the least of the team’s concerns.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    Abreu will be younger at the end of his current contract than EE is today before the team has played one game in 2020. Yet you are concerned about locking Jose into the DH spot in his years 33, 34, and 35, whereas no such similar concern with a 37 year old EE this year, or a 38 year old EE next year. Why the aging concern for one but not the other? Seems like if anyone is going to fall off the cliff, it would be the 37 year old before the 33 year old.
