    2022 Catch All

    C That's after carjackings were up over 100% from 2019-2020. But yeah, not a Chicago problem. https://www.fox32chicago.com/news/carjackings-more-than-double-in-2020

    MLB 2021-2 off season thread

    I believe it's a matter of whether the players are in the MLBPA or basically on the 40 man roster. So Sox could trade an A baller to Miami for an A baller but they can't trade Kimbrel for Segura. That's my understanding and I could be wrong. There pretty limited info available on this scenario.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Yup. Says all you need to know about that guy. I will avoid responding to his posts as there is no point. Just says a bunch of stuff he doesn't understand, refuses to clarify or provide support, then calls names and makes ridiculous demands instead of substantiating his posts. As long as some kid doesn't read his posts and think that he is in any way accurate. More access to information than ever and you still have people peddling made up garbage that anyone can quickly google and see is wrong.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Just explain how owners have negative tax rates. No changing the subject or name calling. Just substantiate the stuff that you’re pretty clearly making up. Use a source for released tax records. Use a source for how you would calculate a negative tax rate for a billionaire. Do anything else and it’s clear you’re making stuff up.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    There’s a reason you didn’t respond to any of my specific points. You’re full of it and need to get personal to distract from the lack of actual knowledge or understanding about the subject. We get it, you hate the rich and that you’re a great person. Blah blah blah. You add nothing to the conversation speaking so arrogantly about a subject you don’t understand. You don’t need to turn everything about business and wealth into one of your platitudes.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    1.) SHH is not exaggerating he is speaking on something he clearly doesn't understand. You don't need to defend him before he can respond, he can speak for himself too. 2.) I never made that proclamation and I can speak for myself. Never talked about fairness. Never talked about equality. You don't need to make stuff up to elevate yourself in a conversation you jumped in to derail. SSH and I can speak for ourselves, we don't need you to convolute the conversation and enlighten us by changing the discussion to speak on topics that are outside of the scope of the conversation being had.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    You ignored my response to your post last time so I am not expecting much here, but you really do not understand any of this in a way where you should be speaking about it so assuredly. The players and owners are subject to the same tax code. They have all the same deductions and exemptions available to them just like you or I. For instance, can you explain or source how you came to the conclusion that some billionaires have a "net negative tax rate?" How about "differed capital gains rates"? Are you under the assumption that only the owners are allowed to use 1031 exchanges? Or do you just not understand what capital gains are in general? Welfare subsidies in the form of taxpayer funded stadiums is more of a representation issue than it is an owner issue. You can actually help fix that issue by voting out the politicians that use taxpayer funds for these types of private projects with little-to-no social benefit. How do you determine that the appreciation of sports franchise is tax free growth? If your parents had a house for 40 years and it appreciated 200% in value would that also be tax free? How do you think the franchise owner are skirting their tax bill??

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    Isn't Engel the primary backup at CF?

    Kendall Graveman agrees to deal w/Sox 3/$24

    For sure that makes sense. I was just making sure you were in fact ignoring the facts that don't support your complaints.

    Why mention Keuchel and not Grandal/Hendriks?

    GM Meetings - Front Office Diversity

    Oh great, you have testimonial evidence that completely undermines anything that widely known and understood. Which teams were ran by the "several analysts" you know? The topic at hand is about executives in the front office so not sure how your hoards of analyst friends apply. Though it is amazing none of the several people you know were able to keep a job in sports during covid. As for the second part, that's you twisting words to beat down a narrative you want to beat down. White people have a better shot at obtaining anything in this country because they make up more than half the population. But yeah you're right, every white executive in baseball got the job because they know someone and it had nothing to do with the ivy league resumes, top MBAs/JDs, etc. It's all about who you know. Andrew Freidman learned how to build without a payroll because of his dad's buddy, Rick Hahn negotiates contract extensions better than anyone because his uncles knows Reinsdorf, etc. The only person belittling here is you. Did you read the article that started this topic or are you just trying to poke holes in my posts talking about a subject you don't seem to understand?

    I don't know what they offered in terms of $ but I know they had an offer and Harper loved the Sox presentation and specifically hit it off with Kenny Williams. So when they offered the most for Wheeler, what happened? Wasn't a serious offer?
