    What Can Be Done to Fix this Mess?

    I was told “honestly, take the year off” last night in the GT, so I guess while it’s beyond both of our wildest expectations, everyone else here assumed they’d be this s***ty, so it’s our fault for not being mentally prepared to lose 13 out of every 15 games
  2. Let’s just say you’re correct (you’re not) that all teams who tank do it, win for 3-4 years and then suck ass again: wouldn’t that be a good problem to have? They were 90 feet away from back to back championships. The argument could also be made that the Royals, being a small market team and all, couldn’t afford to keep all of their guys around. The Sox, meanwhile, *should* be able to keep the main guys if it all works out. Unless you’re LAD, NYY, BOS, or the Cubs, some of those stars will have to leave. Like someone else mentioned, the Cubs and Houston are going to be in the playoffs for the next 10 years. The Braves’ rebuild are looking good & Cincy’s farm is getting there too. Not sure why you picked one organization who successfully tanked just to help your point. I think you’re getting two options mixed up. Typically loading up on FA’s is the way to only compete for a year or three, although that’s only if you get lucky. Rebuilding (“tanking”) is the way to sustain success for years if done properly.

    Austin said “2-3 on THIS roster” and Balta said “I think 10-15,” so we’re discussing the White Sox roster, not all of the minor leagues.

    What 10-15 current players are apart of the Sox future?

    April 1, 2019, hopefully. What the f*** is the point otherwise

    He can’t hit in the cold and can’t hit tough LHP. Wonderful.

    48 degrees = “this weather?” Ugh just stop. Here’s to hoping every postseason game he pitches for the team in 2020 and on is in a dome or a warm weather city.
