    McDowell says White Sox/Larussa Cheated

    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.
  5. I was screwing around on YouTube the other night when I found this video (presumably from the early 80s) that I'm sure some here would enjoy watching. Hard to believe that old Comiskey has been gone for almost 30 years. Jean Shepherd's America - Chicago (White Sox) Notice how parking cost a whopping FIVE BUCKS. 🤣

    Can the 20s be the best decade in Sox history?

    Goodbye `27 Yankees, hello `23 White Sox. 😎 The 2010s was arguably the worst decade in White Sox history, hopefully the 2020s will be one of the best. I was just looking at my 2020 White Sox wall calendar that features one player each month. Two of the players featured (Robert and Madrigal) haven't played an inning of MLB yet.

    I believe the Sox were the overall winningest team in the American League in the 90s... a lot of 2nd place finishes, but only one playoff appearance. That's been the MO of this team for a long time... good but not quite good enough.

    Sports Media discussion

    Those two were hilarious together. Some of the most fun radio I've ever heard on The SCORE. I think it was just a one time thing. I've been really enjoying some of these holiday pairings. Spiegel and Boers were simply awesome together, and Boers and Shepkowski were very good as well.

    Let's win the damn division

    IIRC, Ozzie wanted out. He and Kenny weren't getting along very well at the end.
  10. Jerry, Kenny, and Rick should all be aware of one fact about Sox fans... "If you win... they will come"

    Sports Media discussion

    Sports radio has been a pleasant listen these past few days. For the past 5+ years, it's been all Cub love and almost all Sox hate. Today it did a complete 180. They're actually starting to criticize Saint Theo!

    Hats off to the Front Office

    Don't know if Stoney has any inside information here, but he makes a good point... https://twitter.com/stevestone/status/1202423326699749376

    White Sox sign Gio Gonzalez

    I'm fine with this signing.... a veteran arm who will hopefully eat up innings and provide leadership and depth. His career has now gone full circle.
