    Putting things in realistic perspective.

    I agree, they’re more than one year away..... from being a championship contender. However, the expectation should be set of the White Sox making the playoffs every year now. Regardless of the playoff format, or Minnesota and Cleveland, we cannot take any steps back from here.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    I agree, they can’t count on this extended playoff format being around. There needs to be a lot of roster and personnel changes entering next season. This is not a championship team
  3. Im oddly at peace after these first two games. Unless Game 3 is a continuation of the terrible games from the last two weeks, a “good loss” like today wouldn’t be shameful. I expected a sweep coming into Oakland.

    9/27 GT: Cubs @ Sox (2:10pm)

    Next year that “happy to be here” excuse goes away. They’ll have to earn it over a (likely) 162 game season. Anything less is a disaster. 2021 is what everyone is saying right? All those other rebuild teams took the next step after an initial playoff loss right? Hahn is going to have his work cut out this offseason

    I think that’s the truth. They weren’t pushed by RR either. He may have thought the division and seeding was in the bag. Maybe he didn’t care. But all i know is, we’ll look back at 2020 as a great step forward with the rebuild....followed by a late season collapse.

    Any other positional players we can throw out for a couple relief innings?

    I believe most here are happy they made the playoffs, but understandably upset with how the last week has gone. Are you excited about Tue? I’m not, and I’d be shocked if anyone else here is either. We expect an early exit This season has been a great step forward for the rebuild, but it’s not done. And now let’s see how they perform in the coming season with some expectations

    82-83 win team that benefited tremendously from a shortened season and an expanded playoff seeding. Regardless, now the expectations have started and anything less than a repeat playoff appearance will be unacceptable. Hahn has yet another tough offseason ahead of him. There needs to be quite a few upgrades (notably RF and in the starting rotation)

    With a pitcher like Lopez he just doesn’t find his command out of nowhere, and he hasn’t earned the right to battle through terrible innings. We’re playing for a division title. Oh and I know it doesn’t matter to many, have to keep everyone fresh for Tue, but with this guy there shouldn’t be a “one batter too late” mentality. You take him out early to avoid these early, demoralizing blowouts.
  10. I know this isn’t any consolation right now, but I think this is exactly what had to happen to rid themselves of RR. Have the team go through a demoralizing series with one questionable decision after another, dragging ass into the playoffs, is enough for MOST fans to overlook the “first playoff appearance since 2008” or “if you would have told me before the season started” lines I’ve seem thrown around here. Fire RR, fix the roster problems, and enter next season with some momentum.

    8/1 Sox vs Royals GT

    He has an amazing changeup from what ive seen

    We could potentially be .500 or below and be a wild card spot. That’s absolutely a disappointment to not reach, even with the unknowns

    7/28 Sox/Indians Double Header thread

    It just feels demoralizing as a fan. Like you know it’s still early in a sense, and 1-4 isn’t insurmountable, but these games have been a quick reminder of how far this team has to go.

    Yep. Only so few reasons you’d divorce your pregnant wife before the child is due.

    Kopech sitting out 2020 - files for divorce

    It’s in everyone’s best interest for Kopech or someone from his camp to put out a statement. It’s unfair for others to have to comment on his behalf; and without anything official you allow someone like Cooper an opportunity to give his opinion and ignite the rumor mill. He can thank the fans and teammates for the concern, suggest he’s sitting out due to personal reasons (without having to fully divulge the info), and he’ll be ready for the 2021 season. Everyone’s happy, especially the meatheads, and we move on. Then he can seek whatever assistance he needs
