    Sox issue qualifying offer to Abreu

    Hahn: Ball's in your court, Jose.

    Sox issue qualifying offer to Abreu

    I am guessing this is nothing more than posturing to get Uncle Jerry to take him seriously. I mean, remember PK spending a weekend in Anaheim to get Uncle Jerry to take him seriously, too... That deal got done.

    Jose probably needs to move to DH soon.

    Cole or Strasburg?

    on my honeymoon, we ate at a place called "Chicken in a Barrel" that was literally a dude smoking chicken in a barrel, on the side of the road. Sometimes, those are the best places. Its an entirely different story when a team tries to be a five-star franchise and leads on its fanbase. If the Sox want to do business in the FA market, they need to rethink how they manage the PR side of that. Telling the fanbase "we're going after so-and-so" is one thing, but publicly acting surprised when your horseshit offer was outbid is comical.

    Cole or Strasburg?

    I mean... if you consider the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, etc as the "fine dining" of professional baseball, the White Sox are the Chinese takeout counter that is protected with bulletproof glass. So Rick's "seat at the table" is probably one of those $4 walmart TV dinner stands. /metaphors

    Cole or Strasburg?

    These pipedream threads are fun, but let's be real here... this is the White Sox we're talking about, and the team ain't signing Cole or Strasburg. At least they'll have a seat at the table though.

    The worst that can happen is he takes the QO and turns into 2003 Paul Konerko... and ol Ricky refuses to take him out of the 3 hole.

    I guess the good news is that they can't QO him two years in a row.

    Angels decline $14 million option on Kole Calhoun

    He's a grinder, so he's got that going for him.

    Sox trade rights to Welington Castillo to rangers

    I'll hate on the cheapness as much as anyone on this board, but let's be real here. The Sox make something out of nothing on this transaction.

    JDM staying in Boston

    who knows, maybe he can help Abreu with his approach... * fingers crossed *

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    Baseball is fun, baseball games are fun and Comiskey Park is a great place to spend a summer afternoon or evening with family and friends.

    Braves and Dodgers Out

    As a Dodgers fan, I can tell you... that team should be playing in the World Series. That much is obvious. Their shortcomings were largely due to the FO not adding any bullpen help at the deadline, having 5 rookies on the playoff roster and (my armchair opinion here) the manager making some questionable bullpen decisions. However, the NL playoff bracket was just a contest to see who would lose to the Astros in the World Series. As for the content of this thread, as long as ol Ricky is managing the Sox, I fully expect the contending White Sox team(s) to bunt their way out of the playoffs.
