    Sox vs. Cubs 9/23/18

    Not happening guy. Better get used to it.

    Sox vs. Cubs 9/23/18

    And in typical Sox fashion on a big event day, they completely look like shit.

    Wish him well in retirement. Now it's Jason's show.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    It was more than just fan attendance though and their exceptional marketing / promotion department had a lot to do with building the Wrigly Field culture regardless of how the team was doing on the field. John McDonough was a genius at this approach.

    9/21- Cubs vs Sox, 3:10

    Didn't expect this. At least the Cubs won't clinch shit on the Sox home field. But that Sox bullpen made it interesting yet again. What garbage.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    Yes. I agree they should explore options for trading both those guys. I'd like to keep Jose' around if but they can get something decent for him, you move him. Regarding A.Garcia, since the guy is a walking injury waiting to happen they won't get much for him anyway so personally I wouldn't care if they just cut him. Just tired of his bad defense and ability to always be hurt. Believe me I don't like tanking. These are the Chicago White Sox not the San Diego Padres or Pittsburgh Pirates but with so many kids still two years away it is the logical thing to do (short of ownership spending millions on free agents which they really haven't done much and when they do they fall right on their faces.)

    I was referring to Lillian's post since she is advocating that they do. I don't see how it is even remotely possible.

    Covey shouldn't even be a 5th starter in double A, if you are actually trying to compete next year you need five solid starters, not four, (two of who are young and one has an injury history). Look back at the White Sox staffs of 1996, 2003 and 2004 to see the impact of not having a solid back end starter on your staff. When I said three outfielders I was counting Eloy as one of them. Both A. Garcia and L. Garcia need to be sent packing if for no other reason they are useless always being injured. I go back to the basic premise, unless the Sox dramatically overspend in their offer why would anybody want to sign with a franchise that has had six straight losing seasons, nine out of the last 12 and have shown little growth potential as of yet? (because most of the best prospects are either injured or still a few years away.) Maybe I'm wrong, I've basically forgotten what meaningful September games are like save for watching my tapes and DVD's of the Sox in better years, but I can't see 2019 being worth a damn either at this point.

    To be fair he's been able to overcome those mistakes and actually win. When the Sox sign stiffs like Dunn, LaRoche, Shark et al they're DOA.

    Lillian: With respect they need a hell of a lot more than just one more bat and one more arm. Try two solid starters, basically a brand new bullpen, at least three guys, and a new outfield. It would also help if they could get a catcher who can both hit a little and actually catch the baseball. 2019 is going to be another very long season.

    9/20- Sox at Indians, 6:10

    They won but that bullpen is horrific and despite what some think (and they may prove to be right eventually) the vast majority of these guys aren't going to make it as major league pitchers on a good team. They smell to high heaven.

    Palka (again)

    Kid should be given the chance as full time DH next year. Just keep him out of the outfield.

    Sox at Native Americans 9/19 game thread

    15th time this year the Sox lost a lead and a game in the 7th inning or later.

    New Owner

    Point of clarification. John Allyn was basically told by MLB (who badly wanted to settle the lawsuits imposed by King County and the city of Seattle) that his only options were either sell to Bill Veeck or take Seattle's offer. It should also be noted that had the Sox moved to Seattle, Charlie Finley, who had most of his business interest in Chicago, was immediately going to move the A's in. So the city was not going to be without a major league team for 1976.
