    Sox sign Justin Morneau

    I dig it for that kind of doe.
  2. QUOTE (Special K @ Jun 9, 2016 -> 10:43 AM) That positional player comment is not entirely true. Semien is fine, Trayce seems solid. Also De Aza. But I get the point. They didn't develop De Aza. He was a waiver claim from the Marlins.
  3. QUOTE (SouthSideSale @ Jun 9, 2016 -> 09:54 AM) This team sucks so keep losing boys. I want another top 5 pick Dude.
  4. QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Jun 9, 2016 -> 10:07 AM) I got that. What I don't get is what he thinks it will accomplish if JR does it. Do the players not know they have sucked? Do the fans not know they have sucked? Does management not know this team has sucked? What exactly does this achieve? Nothing, which is why JR would never do it.
  5. QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Jun 9, 2016 -> 09:47 AM) Still doesn't explain what a public temper tantrum accomplishes? What did it do for San Diego? None of those words were JRs. They were San Diego's owner - and Rosenclown made it sound like it was JR's...until the last sentence.
  6. What a horrible article. Terribly misleading.

    White Sox will chase Jay Bruce

    QUOTE (b-Rye @ Jun 8, 2016 -> 09:46 PM) The 3 year fail more like it. This team has no depth. When Jackson,c Cabrera were gone last week we had the worst lineup baseball by far. no depth whatsoever. Fulmer might be a bust, Anderson looks like Micah Johnson to me, rodon below average, duke/albers/Latos/avilla/Rollins/shuck/sands/Garcia should be dfa'd and guarantee nobody in MLB would add them. Then it's a nothing but aaaa players in our system. Our cheap ass GM should of got some decent players not a bunch of crap players off scrap pile. Imagine Ian desmond, Dexter Fowler, cespedes on this team This is one of the worst posts I have ever seen on here, and that is saying something. No MLB teams have the depth to take 2/3 starters out of their outfield and expect to field an above average lineup. No one. What makes you think Fulmer is a bust and Anderson is Micah Johnson? What a comical comment. Rodon average? The dude pitched less than 25 innings in the minor leagues - he's not going to be an ace yet. Give him some time.

    Morneau buzz

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Jun 8, 2016 -> 03:24 PM) If the Sox did sign Morneau, they would probably have the best 2010 roster in baseball. Not really. Outside of Rollins, no one else the team was really relevant in 2010 in the bigs...maybe Melky. Also just so happened to be Melky's worst year of his career.

    Nationals (Scherzer) @ Sox (Shields)

    QUOTE (Jose Paniagua @ Jun 8, 2016 -> 02:43 PM) Austin Jackson has actually come around some statistically. Bravo. The guy that hasn't played in almost 2 weeks? haha

    4th Place

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 11:21 PM) Of course, Chris Carter had 5 RBI's tonight and now has 16 and 39. Trayce Thompson has been hitting 3rd and now 5th for the Dodgers the last two nights. Marcus Semien has a 743 OPS for the A's, which would be 770-780ish in a favorable hitting environment. But we do have that draft pick instead of Semien AND Desmond. This post made me LOL.

    White Sox will chase Jay Bruce

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 10:05 PM) If they trade Tim Anderson for anyone at this point, that's the very last straw. The last straw for what? You making 100 posts a day on a White Sox board? That said, I hope they don't trade Tim Anderson, and highly doubt that they will.

    White Sox Acquire James Shields

    QUOTE (soxfan2014 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 04:10 PM) As I stated above, I think we would receive compensation from the Padres if he opts out. Think that's what he meant. I get it - my point is that if Rick were wrong about that I'd be blown away.

    Sands DFA'd; Coats optioned to AAA

    QUOTE (Buehrle>Wood @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 04:04 PM) Praise the lord. It actually happened. I never want to see Sands again. I don't like Shuck over Coats though unless Jackson is still out for awhile. Jackson is in the lineup today.

    Misc. Sox Quotes & Tweets

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 04:04 PM) Random thought, but I totally see Jonathan Lucroy on the White Sox by the end of the month. I really hope not. I mean I like Lucroy as a player and all, and the Sox could definitely use an upgrade there. But he is going to be expensive to acquire prospect-wise, and you only get him for 1.5 years. Not to mention, he is perhaps one concussion away from not catching again and hes injury prone to begin with. I'd be for it if he was relatively cheap (no Anderson or Fulmer), but I'd be super hesitant to give one of those guys up for 200 games of control of Lucroy.

    White Sox Acquire James Shields

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 04:06 PM) The CBA states that to be eligible to receive a qualifying offer a player must have been with the same Club at the major or minor league level since Opening Day of the last completed season. Ergo, the Sox could not offer him a qualifying offer. Thats what I thought, but I'd be pretty blown away if Rick said they would get a pick if he opts out and was wrong about that. Admittedly, I haven't seen or heard that quote - just read it here.

    White Sox Acquire James Shields

    QUOTE (maxjusttyped @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 03:58 PM) Agreed, but not knowing how FA compensation works would be a pretty damning thing. Knowing the basic rules of roster management should be step 1 for being a GM. Honestly, I didn't read your post completely. Didn't realize Hahn said that. Due to the opt out clause, they must get the comp pick if he does chose to opt out. More reason why he won't do it.

    Sands DFA'd; Coats optioned to AAA

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 04:02 PM) Though I will say that I would expect with Gonzalez at the back of the pen, that Purke goes back to Charlotte for another position player (Sanchez is my guess) soon. Jon Jay would have been nice to have on this roster instead of Shuck. I wonder what the Pads were asking for, as I am sure Hahn inquired.

    Sands DFA'd; Coats optioned to AAA

    QUOTE (Condor13 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 03:54 PM) So are the Sox now carrying an extra bullpen arm? Yes.

    White Sox Acquire James Shields

    QUOTE (maxjusttyped @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 03:53 PM) Would the Sox receive a draft pick if Shields were to opt? I know the answer with most players who are traded mid-season is no, but is there a loophole in the rules for players with an opt-out? I just assumed the answer would be no, but Hahn specifically saying they'd receive a compensation pick if Shields opts out and leaves has me wondering. There is no way the White Sox don't understand how the compensation rules work, right? That would be a pretty damning incitement on the organization if they don't know a basic rule most people on here are aware of. I don't think so, but he'd be DAMNED FOOL to opt out.

    QUOTE (Lip Man 1 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 02:38 PM) Which is why, as I told an earlier poster, I'll let the results on the field and the front office moves do the talking from that perspective from now on. That should make a segment of the readers happy. So it's win / win for all! Mark Cool - we'll see how long that lasts.

    Sox (29-28) vs Nats (34-23)

    QUOTE (Joshua Strong @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 01:44 PM) Talk about a Cubs fan mentality Are you referring to me? I am taking on a Cubs fan mentality because I haven't given up on the Sox on June 7th when they are 3.5 GB from the division lead? My lord.

    White Sox Acquire James Shields

    QUOTE (Lip Man 1 @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 01:02 PM) To me my passion for the White Sox is, was and always will be the third most important / prominent part of my life behind my wife and my son and his family. Mark Hmmm, hard to tell reading your posts. The Sox are also one of the more prominent parts of my life, always have been and likely always will be, but I take such a different approach to things than you. But as you said, everyone is different. Just don't think pointing out every single negative thing helps the picture, really, and certainly sucks out the enjoyment (at least would for me).

    QUOTE (Dunt @ Jun 7, 2016 -> 09:47 AM) Pretty damn good sure, but ace level? Unlikely. Jose Quintana has maintained a lower FIP across a longer stretch with the Sox and people have argued for a long time he's not an ace, so if he's not, Jame Shields sure as s*** wasnt. He may not have been an ace in the traditional sense - if you want to call the top 30 pitchers in baseball aces. But he was the best pitcher on KCs staff, and by that definition, was the ace of their staff. But he still was probably one of the best 30 SP in the game in those years.
