    Dane Dunning had Tommy John today

    I did find it interesting reading his comments in the story that even back in October after he had rested and rehabbed he said the soreness was still there, not as bad but still in place.

    Spring Training Thread

    As I've suggested in the past, "pay them" from the MLB Central Fund for the "trouble" of having to sacrifice to make things better for fans. Fans shouldn't have to sit through 38 degree weather to watch a game and you have a higher injury risk with really cold weather (hamstrings etc...) The better solution would be to cut the season down and start playing actual DH's again but that of course makes to much sense and owners love their $$$$$

    No surprise...another one bites the dust.
  4. The Sox always seem to be reactive instead of proactive. That's part of what happens when you have people in their front office jobs for years (decades) and a group mindset of security without accountability for results sets in.

    Gio Gonzalez

    He can't be any worse than some of the stiffs they are running out there right now, that's for sure.

    Sox vs. Ariz. 03/17

    Jones looks awful as bad as Minaya, hell as bad as most of the pitching staff this spring.

    What Kind of Rebuild is This?

    Very true and that's where not being willing to spend money and having a bad farm system (again because JR admittedly refused to pay for potential) really killed them in years when injuries hit. 2001, 2004, 2007 and 2010 immediately come to mind.

    OK.... Whatever you say sir. 😏

    What Kind of Rebuild is This?

    I can't speak for everyone but I was damn excited during the two time periods I listed. 1977 and 2005 were one year wonders. To do something sustained is the mark of excellence and the two runs I mentioned while not Yankee or brave like were still worth mentioning. As I said they aren't chopped liver to be dismissed out of hand or tossed in the garbage. That's plain nuts.

    Well they had a nice run overall from 1981-1985 and from 1990-1996. 81-85, four winning seasons, lots of excitement and a division title. 90-96, six winning seasons, a division title, opening of a new ballpark and the rise of some very good young players. That's not exactly chopped liver.

    Have we hit bottom?

    Until the White Sox prove they can develop their young kids AND actually keep them healthy, I'd say they haven't hit rock bottom yet.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    MLB.com now has a story quoting Harper as saying he's going to start "recruiting" Trout for the Phillies in 2020.
  14. Giolito kind of "meh" today, Minaya looked brutal yet again. How many chances is this stiff going to keep getting from this organization?

    Johnny Romano R.I.P.

    Between 1963 and 1967 the Sox led the league in ERA four times and missed leading it the 5th season by a very slim margin to the Orioles as I remember. They produced pitchers like Detroit produced cars back then.
