    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Not expecting a season and haven't for some time, and I'm having a hard time caring anymore. This could be very bad for the future of the game.

    Reinsdorf makes money off Cubs network

    Most of the time, NBC Sports Chicago airs infomercials, mid-major college sports, American Ninja Warrior, poker, fishing and hunting shows, and other sports programming that is unrelated to the three teams whose games actually air on the channel. Big Ten Network has FOURTEEN teams, and they still air a ton of weird stuff. What is Marquee going to air in the winter months? It took Comcast a year to come to an agreement with Big Ten Network.

    McDowell says White Sox/Larussa Cheated

    For those here who may not know... Look to the right of the scoreboard on the fa├žade of the upper deck, and you'll see the infamous Gatorade sign.. The sign in question

    OF Prospects - Who will Rebound in 2020?

    I agree, but I'm not counting on it. For some reason with some players, once the injury bug bites, it keeps on biting... look at Burger. It sucks and it's not fair, but that's life. I follow the minor leagues regularly, and I panic whenever his name isn't in the box score. Amen to that.

    Sox Have Deal for Norge Vera - 2020 Class

    Based on recent history, I'm guessing DSL. I'll say 75% DSL 25% AZL

    Kris Bryant loses grievance

    The hot rumor about a month ago had Bryant going to the Braves for a package of prospects.

    McDowell says White Sox/Larussa Cheated

    Interesting theory, but you have to wonder how much of that is Jack's fault. Jack used to write a column for Yahoo, and several years ago he wrote something regarding Gordon Beckham (I forget what it was about). Anyway, Hawk ripped him on the air over it, saying "I've lost a lot of respect for Jack McDowell." That's the worst thing I've ever heard Hawk say about any Sox player. IIRC, Black Jack did a couple games with Hawk before this incident. McDowell was invited back for the `93 reunion... he threw out the first pitch that day. He's very opinionated and not afraid to speak his mind... just Jack being Jack.

    McDowell says White Sox/Larussa Cheated

    FWIW, McDowell was supposed to be on with McNeil and Parkins back in October to tallk about how cheap JR is, but he cancelled the interview and never rescheduled. Not sure what, if anything, to make of this. http://www.chicagofanatics.com/viewtopic.php?f=128&t=119102

    Alex Cora played his college ball at Miami... maybe that's where he learned it?

    McDowell says White Sox/Larussa Cheated

    Jack is one of my all-time favorite Sox players. I'm also a fan of his music (the two Stickfigure CDs I have are excellent). Given the fact that he never played for LaRussa, I can only assume that he heard it from a teammate. That being said, I'm not going to judge ANYBODY here until one of those teammates confirms Jack's allegations. I'm really starting to wonder how many teams do this. IIRC, the Indians got caught using a camera to steal signs back around 2000... IIRC, Mike Sirotka is the one who called them on it.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    I'm willing to see what Ricky can do with a MLB caliber roster, although the bullpen still needs help. Look at Jim Fregosi. He was awful when he was here (during a rebuild). Five years after the Sox canned him, he had the Phillies in the World Series. I remember when the Sox drafted AJ Hinch out of high school in 1991 (he didn't sign).

    Jean Shepherd's America - White Sox

    I agree with him. IIRC, in Lip's interview with Mike Veeck on WSI, he said that it could've been fixed for a modest sum of money. Historic preservation wasn't very common in the 80s and 90s. Had today's attitudes existed back then, old Comiskey and Tiger Stadium would still be in use today.
