    Which baseball movie has the greatest Hollywood ending?

    The Natural. Pride of the Yankees was a great baseball movie but as all of us know, the ending wasn't good.

    Camden Yards moving back fences

    I loved watching the Bears at Wrigley, saw many games there in the late 50s and early 60s, with those temporary stands in right field you were right on top of the action. Papa Bear would squeeze 45,000 in Wrigley, 8,000 more than the baseball capacity in those days.

    Maris hit more homers against the Sox with 13 than any other team on his way to 61 in 61. I remember seeing 2 of them at old Comiskey.

    After game 1, I was thinking 4 game sweep, then came game 2 which we had a good chance of coming back to win if it wasn't for a bad call by third base coach sending Sherm Lollar home with no outs, Lollar was out was a mile and the rally fizzled.

    RIP Roland Hemond

    One of the classiest guys ever to be associated with the White Sox besides being a very good GM. What an amazing job he did improving the 1971 White Sox by 23 games as the 1970 team lost the most games in Sox history and then almost winning the Division in 1972, if Melton hadn't hurt his back the Sox probably would have won the West. May he rest in peace.

    Semien to Rangers, 7 for $175

    That's been going for a long time, we need new ownership who will run the White Sox like the big market franchise they are meant to be.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    I'm fine with Leury returning, he's a good guy to have around as long as he's not out there everyday especially in the outfield.
  10. I tend to agree with you, though he had one of the greatest seasons in Sox history in 1972, I had issues with Allen quitting on the team in 1974 and as also didn't like it when as a favor we carried his brother Hank on the roster who was a complete waste so he would qualify for his MLB pension. When I think of him as a Hall of Famer I'm on the bubble but then I think if Santo is in the HOF then Allen should be in but then again if I could vote, I would take Billy Pierce over Allen.
  11. Actually the Aparicio trade helped the Sox come with their 3 best consecutive years in Sox history when they won 94 games in 1963, 98 games in 1964 and 95 games in 1965. If we had the wild card back then the Sox would have made the playoffs all 3 years plus a few more times in the 1950s.
  12. Nellie was traded in the twilight of his career but I was still very sad when it happened. Minnie, Aparicio and Baines were traded when they were still in their prime and the trades were hard to swallow.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Day and hopefully this time next year we will be giving thanks for a White Sox World Series Championship.

    Wander Franco 12 year extension?

    Exactly, the Rays will trade him half way through the contract in a salary dump, maybe sooner.

    Avisail Garcia opts out

    Why didn't I think of that.
