    The Hawk Harrelson tribute thread

    Gonna miss Hawk, his Hawkisms and his stories. No denying his love for the White Sox.

    Sox vs. Cubs 9/23/18

    Very sad to see Hawk go. He's a White Sox legend! Wish him all the best and hope he comes back to do Sox/cubs games in the future.

    Rodon is coming off of shoulder surgery and building up his innings so I'm not surprised by his struggles. Next year is another development year so let's see how Rodon pitches over the course of the 2019 season before determining his fate.

    Sunday Baseball on MLBN as The Hawk says good bye

    At work so missed the game but happy to read that box score! Lokks like another great outing for Lopez, not bad for a future reliever.

    The Dylan Covey Experiment

    As of now Rodon, Lopez and Giolito are penciled into the rotation for next season. Regardless of the results so far the Sox just might need Covey next year as a starter. Let him start and see what happens.

    Moncada leading MLB in OOZ strike 3s

    I knew there was alot just by watching the games but had no idea it was that much, wow.

    Anderson, Moncada, and the lesson of Joe Crede

    Going to be fun to see what inchlongwrigleydong thinks... Great post Greg. I think you're spot on.

    I really don't understand the point in that post. It's probably a good thing to be honest. To expect an A ball player with less tools than Moncada to replace him is utterly ludicrous. It makes no sense at all.

    Are the Sox Losing on Purpose?

    25 men out. Soon to be released on blue ray and DVD. It's a baseball love story about a team purposely losing to get a higher draft slot in the 2019 draft. This love story focuses on the courting of a highly touted draft pick and how White Sox scouts must woo the draft pick to earn his love, trust and respect while the White Sox team lose as many games possible to get into position to draft the prospect. As the story unfolds the mastermind behind this insidiously genius scheme is revealed. Will it be JR? KW? Rick Hahn? Hawk? Or perhaps a ringer hired from outside the organization? Rated PG-13.

    Taking a hiatus at the end of the baseball season

    I wish you all the best jack and should you decide to return we'll be here. I know what you're going through. I've changed my approach to baseball. If I'm home and have nothing going on with wifey then I watch my favorite team play ball. But if I have other things to do then I do them and watch highlights when I have the chance. Chicago summers are too short to spend so much time in front of the idiot box so I try to get outdoors and live a little when I can. Best of luck Jack!

    The Stopgap plan for 2019-20

    Okay I see where you're coming from now and agree.

    The Stopgap plan for 2019-20

    There will be two holes in the rotation after Shields is bought out. Are you comfortable with two of Guerrero, Covey, Adams, Stephens filling those two spots? I'm not. Cease likely won't be ready for a call-up until August or September next year. Then there's the set backs with Dunning and Hansen. I see no problem with a team that has plenty of money to spend shoring up one of those spots with a free agent pitcher. It's not like giving Corbin a big contract would cripple the White Sox finances.

    The " Tank" is dead . Let there be Light !

    Just part of the ups and downs a young team goes through. We're going to see more of it in 2019 as wel but it won't mean the tank is on.

    The " Tank" is dead . Let there be Light !

    Just because Kopech is out doesn't mean the tank is back on. The Sox were playing good ball before the call-up and in games Kopech didn't pitch.
