    Goodbye Soxtalk

    Chicago is certainly a haven for crime. But Nashville has one of the highest crime rates in America based on it's size. Do your research as to where to relocate to in that area. Good luck to you and your family in your new locale. Certainly the weather will be a bonus.
  2. You underestimate Boras. I bet Harper will get $325-350 before it is over which could be as early as tomorrow. tomorrow.
  3. Maybe the Phillies really wanted Harper. We shall see
  4. A few thoughts as this settles in: Kenny saying he was stunned Manny chose San Diego is scary. You got to think the agent said last chance can you beat this. Lost in our disappointment, are the Phillies. Their owner said they would spend crazy money. Does that mean that they would not top 300/10/5? Or does it mean they really wanted Harper more than Manny? Who said Manny didn't like the West Coast? White Sox offer +Friends/Family did not overcome San Diego offer. In the end, all the "insiders" were on the outside.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Which is why I said the blame is on the front office since we don't know who made what decisions.

    I disagree. We have no clue what transpired in the process. We can blame the entire front office but we have no idea if Jerry, Kenny or Rick was mostly to blame. Remember, if Jerry thinks Kenny and/or Rick screwed it up, he can fire them. But as I posted last week, Jerry turns 84 next week so for all we know he may not know what Kenny and Rick do.

    Huh??? Who wants those type of fans? They are the ones who arrive in the 2nd inning, need a scorecard to know who is on the home team and leave to beat the traffic in the 8th.

    But really aren't the White Sox from an attendance and payroll standpoint are also a small market team?
  9. It was a year ago today that Boras client J D Martinez's agreement w Boston was announced. We will see if 2/19 has some significance w Boras.

    Moncada had good numbers in AA and AAA. Eloy had exceptional numbers at AA and AAA( so far)
  11. NESN via USA Today on Above: It’s worth noting that Russell originally reported that Harper would announce his decision Friday, so his report obviously needs to be taken with a grain of salt. He also said that ironing out contract details likely is the reason for the holdup. So, where will Harper end up? “I don’t think it’s going to be the Nationals. I think it’s going to be the San Francisco Giants. But, that is not, that is not — by any means — a, like, I know that for a fact. So, I want to caution everybody because I know how this works.” Round and round we go. What does the Fortune Teller say? https://nesn.com/2019/02/bryce-harper-rumors-star-free-agent-finally-has-made-his-decision/

    Did Manny order a Chicago Deep Dish or a Philly Cheesesteak.

    He is turning 83 in a few weeks. He may think Michael Jordon is playing left-field.
