  1. Agree. The poster is the perfect example of a fair-weather fan. He has stopped following the team for years and now is projecting everyone as a star. In reality, some of our stars will have off years and some will be injured more than they play ( similar to most teams). But this is an excellent roster and future additions could be a bonus. It remains to be seen how TLR will impact the team. Spring training is a time for optimism!!!! Lets hope by the All-Star game we are still feeling good about the team.

    Only JR knew of new TLR DUI upon interview and hire

    Maybe Jerry didn't really withhold the info from RH/KW. Maybe TLR told JR and by the time their discussion ended JR had already forgot what Tony told him. Remember JR is turning 85 next week.

    TLR publicity train

    Harry: He knew what he was doing. It remains to be seen if he knows what he is doing. It has been 10 years since he managed. We hope he still has it.

    Hopefully TLR got his COVID vaccine shot in the 75+ grouping

    Agree. Hopefully some media person will ask Tony how he completed his 20 hours of community service.
  6. Unless Tony or the FO don't see Collins as the future at catcher?
  7. If Lucroy makes the team, wonder where Collins ends up? His MLB at bats would be in jeopardy.
  8. Narron was the bridge between Sox and Lucroy. LaRussa was looking for some added veteran experience. Collins needs to impress this spring or he could lose playing time if Lucroy is the primary back-up. https://www.nbcsports.com/chicago/white-sox/how-jonathan-lucroy-fits-white-sox-spring-training-backup-catcher-battle

    Andrew Benintendi traded to the Royals

    White Sox would not have matched up anyway. Boston wanted an MLB ready outfield prospect in return. If healthy, I think he is a solid addition to Royals since this looks like more of a salary dump by Boston.

    Andrew Benintendi traded to the Royals

    He did play 200+ games in CF which is a difficult CF due to the angles
  11. Another factor is health. Players are more likely to have slumps playing with nagging injuries during a full season than a shortened one.

    David Price?

    No. Has had a lot of issues in clubhouses especially w media. Has talent but at times is a head case when performance de3clines.
  13. It will be interesting how the Sox use him this year. He usually plays 130+ games . However, historically his production takes a drop after the All-Star game. That would indicate he tends to break down later in season. He also tends to struggle offensively when he plays other positions other than Catcher.
  14. I don't totally agree. I think there are differences in fan bases which have an impact on attendance. Some teams are driven by success. They draw when winning and don't when losing. Some teams draw regardless. There are also teams like Tampa Bay that struggle to draw even when winning.

    Pitchers and Catchers Report

    Arizona is the worst state for Covid weekly case rates in the US. I think we will see an agreement for at least a month delay within a few days.
