    MLB COVID-19 outbreaks: None of as Sept 18

    Yet Illinois has 2000 more deaths than Florida and about half the population as the Sunshine State not to mention Chicagoans shooting each other like it's Dodge City.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    There are a lot of stupid people in this country, here in Florida the last few nights there were some more Covid parties. Last week some knuckleheads had a Covid Lottery Party with everyone throwing in 10 bucks in the pot and the first person that came down with the virus won the pot a few days later. Another one was the Covid Hoax party, one guy who was 30 years old died a week later and right before he died he said to the bedside nurse "I guess it's not a hoax". I too am starting to wonder when this thing will go away if we don't come down with a vaccine. Somehow the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918-1920 went away by herd immunity but not before anywhere from 17 million to 50 million died.

    Baseball Possibly Back?!

    What would you prefer?

    I'm with you, I'm an old timer and enjoyed the 17 straight winning seasons of the Go Go years from 1951-1967. If there were playoffs back then the Sox including the 59 AL Champs would have made the post-season probably 10 times in those years. I might have had a different answer if we didn't win it all in 2005.

    Top White Sox Prospects by Position: Third Base

    I'm not sure if we can count on Burger so I'm for moving Moncada to 3rd with Madrigal taking over at 2nd.

    Is it hahn, hostetler, renteria, the coaches, or all of them??

    Maybe someone in the FO believes as so many fans do that Ks are just another out.

    Of course I knew that. It was 1983 that we drew 2 million for the first time. At one time if a franchise drew 1 million a year it was considered that they very successful. Before the Dodgers moved to LA the only teams to draw 2 million were the Yankees from 1946 to 1950 and the Indians in 1948. Im not quite sure what the point is you're making, that it's OK to be near the bottom of the Majors in attendance for the last 5 or 6 years. I don't know about you but it makes me sick to my stomach. One more point is that maybe the Sox fan base has remained the same the last 40,50, or 60 years ago but as the metro area grew from around 5 million in the 1950s to about 10 million now, it is the Cubs fan base that has grown leaps and bounds, playing in a national landmark in a trendy neighborhood and on everybody's bucket list has certainly helped them.

    Lets hope that somehow they can turn this around and the Sox become relevent again in Chicago and the metro area. I don't think Chicago will ever become a Sox town again but if we can draw 2 million a year in average years and close to 3 million when in a pennant race, that would be more than respectable. In the 37 years of the Reinsdorf ownership there have been many mistakes that have led to the erosion of the Sox fan base. Just a few of them; first thing JR and co. did was start mocking Bill Veeck. Then came the introduction of Sportsvision pay TV while the Cubs were airing their games on free tv on WGN. At the same time they let Harry Caray go to the Cubs. After the division title in 1983 we starting hearing that Comiskey Park was in horrible shape, I think it could have been saved much like the old Yankee Stadium was way back in the mid 70s. Then came the move to Florida threat which led to a horrible stadium being built with way too many suites and an upper deck that many refused to sit in. Next up was the White Flag trades. We finally won the Series in 2005 but couldn't even outdraw the Cubs in 05 or 06. There are a few more bad moves but I'll leave it at that but one has to wonder that after all the crap we have gone through that are any Sox fans left at all.

    Yeah, but the Cubs own the mega market. The Sox were last of all of the 30 teams in TV viewership in 2018, the Cubs probably own the market with a 75 to 25% edge. It's like the Sox are playing in a market about the size of Milwaukee or Cincinatti. If a new owner came in he would have to ask himself do I want my team playing in front an average of 20,000 or a market where I average over 30,000 with much higher TV ratings and no competition from another team. Another thing is that places like San Antonio and Charlotte are growing at amazing rates while large segments of people have had it with Northern metro areas like Chicago and are tired of horrible weather among other things. I've been a Sox fan since 1952 and it would kill me if the Sox left Chicago, what the Sox need is a new owner with Chicago ties with deep pockets and somehow find a way to build a new stadium with a retractable roof like Miller Park.

    Sox vs. Cubs 9/23/18

    I did, thought I was hearing things but not as bad as how Harry Caray butchered things as he was really bad in his later years.
