    7/29 White Sox vs Red Sox 6:10 CT

    QUOTE (Swingandalongonetoleft @ Jul 29, 2015 -> 09:18 PM) It absolutely warms the cockles of my heart to watch the Sox come in and kick Boston while they're down like this. I'll remember this fondly. Amen.

    Cards @ Sox

    QUOTE (BrianAnderson @ Jul 21, 2015 -> 04:01 PM) ASB couldn't have come at a worse time ... but then again. Really we were playing the same baseball in the Royals series as we did during our mini-run. Pitching has been terrific. Bullpen has been terrific. Defense has been improved. And offense is a ghost. Even when it was 95 degrees and playing at the Cell .... Let's go Rodon! Calling a 5-2 loss. Probably a strike three called no swing somewhere in there for LaRoche. A hang wiff em out or two for Melky. Abreu swining strike three on a low and away pitch. Probably a couple two on, one out disasters that end in no runs. A solo shot when the game is out of reach. A base running mistake by someone. Good amount of strikeouts for Rodon but an inning where he walks 2-3 and lets in runs. Hawk complaining about the strike zone not being consistent. Stoney getting cut off on a point by Hawk. Robin just staring. Robin making a trip out to the mound, only to be talked back into the dugout by the pitcher, then the pitcher letting up a run and Robin calling to the pen a batter later, Robin calling for Dan Jennings in a pivotal point in the game for no reason, Dan Jennings letting up a hit ... you know, the normal. Now THAT was good!

    **7/6 Epic Game Thread! Sox vs Jays!**

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jul 6, 2015 -> 12:14 PM) You reminded me to check and he's been worse than last year. Impressive how he's completely fallen apart the last couple years and makes me glad we didn't sign that one. Aww heck, everybody deserves to be Adam Dunn'd on occasion. Too bad KW thinks that's a GOOD thing.
  4. QUOTE (Thad Bosley @ Jun 18, 2015 -> 09:26 PM) I was being facetious. I expect no substantial changes from the Chairman whatsoever. Yeah, I knew what you meant. I was just venting.
  5. QUOTE (Thad Bosley @ Jun 18, 2015 -> 09:06 PM) Not to worry. I read today in Bruce Levine's column that Mr. Reinsdorf is very "frustrated" with the whole situation, so I expect major changes in philosophy and personnel as it relates to drafting and assembling a Major League roster to be forthcoming any day now. Only if he's terminally ill....and no, I'm not hoping for that. But it is, in fact, the only way anything changes.

    6/13 Sox @ Rays 3:10 CT CSN

    QUOTE (Baron @ Jun 13, 2015 -> 06:05 PM) Ofcourse and if there is any whiff of selling Rick Hahn should be in the crossfires too. For being KW's puppet? He's a model employee.

    GAMETHREAD - 5/23 - Twins @ White Sox

    QUOTE (Thad Bosley @ May 23, 2015 -> 04:15 PM) Hmmm...Paulie is quite articulate. Seems at ease behind the mike, too. He may just have a future in our booth. At the expense of losing Hawk?
  9. QUOTE (OmarComing25 @ May 22, 2015 -> 07:28 PM) Quietest 16-game hit streak I've ever seen, it'd be nice if he could start hitting for power again. It's called the low and away swinging 3rd strike. League figured him out. Now he's just solid instead of phenomenal.

    GAME THREAD 5/18 - CLE @ SOX

    QUOTE (chitownsportsfan @ May 18, 2015 -> 05:58 PM) More and more evidence that KW is an something bigger than a "VP" role. Ya think?

    5/11 White Sox @ Brewers

    QUOTE (fathom @ May 11, 2015 -> 09:30 PM) I would hope that after this season, the following are long gone from this organization: - Ventura - Bell - Cooper Cooper probably isn't bad at his job like the other two are, but I think it's time for a new voice with the pitching. Cooper was the second coming of Christ as he "fixed" all of those cast-offs over the years. Conversely, he must suck now. Therefore, he sucks.

    5/9 Reds @ White Sox Doubleheader

    QUOTE (Soxfest @ May 9, 2015 -> 06:28 PM) I feel sorry people paid to see this by mid June nobody will be there. Doesn't bother JR and fellow shareholders. Another year with no rent.

    5/9 Reds @ White Sox Doubleheader

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ May 9, 2015 -> 05:24 PM) Eaton just can't get rid of the ball quickly enough...not the best throwing mechanics. I just noticed that. 2 steps and a hop.

    5/7 Tigers at White Sox

    QUOTE (Greg Hibbard @ May 7, 2015 -> 03:35 PM) Ventura's managing is indefensible Oh c'mon now...he was a fan favorite as a player! Robin Ventura....the walking pacifier.

    5/3 - Sox @ Twins

    QUOTE (iamshack @ May 3, 2015 -> 03:12 PM) Are you kidding? Dude just shelled out over $100 million to improve this s***box team and you think he doesn't care to win? Sure he cares. He just made the ages-old mistake of hiring "family" members to run his company. It. Never. Works.

    5/3 - Sox @ Twins

    QUOTE (greg775 @ May 3, 2015 -> 03:10 PM) People are right though. Jerry is getting old and with all of his peers dying he probably has a whole different lease on life these days. Maybe this doesn't sicken him. You mean Jerry "hey, I gave you a World Series, what else do you want" Reinsdorf?

    5/3 - Sox @ Twins

    QUOTE (greg775 @ May 3, 2015 -> 03:07 PM) Most experts said the Sox kicked ass on the trade market and would be the most improved team in baseball. Thus "team management sucks".

    5/2 - White Sox vs Twins

    QUOTE (Butter Parque @ May 2, 2015 -> 04:29 PM) Well we all know for a fact that as long as KW is making moves, this team cannot possible compete. Other than one great offseason in which he had the midas touch, KW has been as incompetent as anyone in baseball. Exactly. Forget about '05. He believes he has the magic touch and is simply an incompetent, pompous, Peter-principaled, head-up the-a**-of-the-owner, couldn't play, couldn't manage, couldn't GM beyond a year or 2,.....what am I missing? There is definitely more.

    5/2 - White Sox vs Twins

    QUOTE (chitownsportsfan @ May 2, 2015 -> 03:15 PM) wow. we caught a break. Still, move evidence this that Rodon's command as a reliever is not there and this experiment should end. So if Coop was such a magical genius in '05, can he suck now?

    Ventura on his job status

    Hiring Ventura was a giant pacifier to the fan base. And it worked for awhile. But pacifiers ALWAYS get spit out eventually.....once it's discovered to be a fake teet.

    4/17 - White Sox vs Tigers

    QUOTE (Condor13 @ Apr 17, 2015 -> 03:31 PM) KW has made this organization horrible. Ever since he got rid of the greatest player in a Sox uniform (The Big Hurt). I have felt for a few years now that the only way this organization gets turned around is for JR to throw KW out a window and let some other unsuspecting team to catch his ass. Teams are built from the top down bc the top makes all of the decisions. We NEED new blood to turn this train wreck around, but that ain't happening anytime soon. Just pray someone in that locker room gets tired of being the butt of all jokes and gets so pissed that he can light a fire under the other players ass and they wake up and play better. Bc the players are the only ones that can salvage this season bc management and coaches are not gonna do anything about it Amen.

    4/17 - White Sox vs Tigers

    QUOTE (BigHurt3515 @ Apr 17, 2015 -> 02:53 PM) I didn't see that look at it. Nice find, he was out. Why didn't Robin challenge it? He didn't want to offend anybody.

    Ventura on his job status

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Apr 14, 2015 -> 01:36 PM) They argued in the dugout and had to be seperated. It wasnt something that happened often, I can only recall the one time. Pretty sure Bo had to stop Frank from destroying Robin Robin would have politely inserted his head into Frank's headlock as he did for Nolan Ryan.
