    Thinking of cheering for the Cubs next year

    Seriously, this is such a stupid fucking take it might make me forgive Hahn/KW/JR and actually appreciate guys like Jay and Alonso. Damn you, Ron.

    Shut the fuck up.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I insulted a guy and the whole exchange, even less nasty parts, got deleted. That’s fine. I accept that, and I restated my position in a way that still stands so I suppose nobody had a problem with it. But a few pages ago a mod called a dude an irrational twelve year old. It’s still there. Am I to assume that’s OK?

    Think what you want. Just try to follow your own rules.

    Sure, when I was 17 or so. I mellowed out (for the most part) and now I definitely see that the mods permit themselves a level of snark not tolerated from the proles.

    They serve a purpose. More casual fans means greater attendance means greater revenue means more spending to improve the team and fan experience. Then again, JR doesn't seem interested in that sort of spending, so the hell with those sorts, I suppose.

    Being a mod exempts him from the personal attack rule.

    I'd say you missed James McCann, but he doesn't even qualify as "mediocre crap", does he?

    Agreed. I will not find another team to support. I am a White Sox fan for life. It is as central to who I am as my own name. But I don’t need to feed it any money when that honest investment does nothing but line Reinsdorf’s pockets. I invest for my entertainment, not for his personal wealth-building.

    You need to live up to your reputation today. We are NOT signing Harper. Some lesser, shitty free agent who will do nothing but suck and leave us in fourth place, sure. Bryce? No.

    Yeah, it was a stupid plan and I've said so from day one. That wasn't going to be the deciding factor in getting Manny, and it was cheap of us to try. And outside of that idiotic incentive, neither of those players have any actual value on the baseball field. .738 OPS last year for Alonso. As a firstbaseman. He SUCKS.

    Cancelled.

    I'm in Texas but I do the single team package. Does that revenue go to the Sox? That's gonna motivate me to cancel.

    Now that Manny's gone, we can sign Gio, Jose Bautista, Adam Jones, and Marwin Gonzalez, so we can focus on putting together a winning roster, like Kenny says. Winning roster, as in "winning 73 games". Someone convince me in the next eight days to cancel MLBTV. Please.

    Since I live in another part of the country, I hope I develop telepathy so I can still abuse Jay and Alonso. Fuck those guys.
