    It’s Time To Put Up or Shut Up, Rick

    Amen on James Fegan. He is miles and miles and miles ahead of the competition. Hope he stays around for awhile. The Tribune and Sun-Times have given up.

    Danish & Vieira called up, Volstad DFA'd

    volstad served his purpose, burning all those meaningless innings for a 105-loss team. He was ready to retired last season when the Sox called him in September. Nobody will stop him this time.

    Jim Landis passes at 83

    Dude could go get 'em in CF. The Comiskey outfield was spacious.

    Another season almost gone and I will miss it.

    The Monday after the regular season ends is like losing a good friend, the saddest day of the year.

    Adam Engel

    One excellent tool. but arm is ordinary. can't get on base. hard to justify playing him.

    8/21/2017 Twins @ White Sox

    they need to make an honest off-season assessment about whether they can turn him into a reliever. Otherwise, I don't see it.

    Good chance to eclipse the 17-7 performance.

    8/19 at Rangers

    QUOTE (fathom @ Aug 20, 2017 -> 02:28 AM) The scout that thought he would be a good fit for the Sox must have been same one who recommended Shields exactly. Holland is even worse than Shields. Holland has nothing left to offer. He needs to fake an injury and finish the season on the DL.

    Two nights in a row Collins has not played.

    8/16 Sox @ Dodgers

    QUOTE (Wanne @ Aug 17, 2017 -> 03:05 AM) Honest question...how did the Sox leave camp with Asche over Delmonico? I know it happens...but geez. Nick was raking in ST too.... probably because he's only played about a half season above AA. But fair question.

    8/16 Sox @ Dodgers

    anybody else see Abreu walking around carrying the trash can in the dugout after the Delmonico HR? What was that?

    Delmonico, growing on me.

    JR "Ozzie can't come back as Manager"

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Aug 16, 2017 -> 01:33 AM) White Sox Talk‏Verified account @CSNWhiteSox 18m18 minutes ago Reinsdorf: Ozzie Guillen 'can't come back' as White Sox manager - http://ift.tt/2wcKwk5 #WhiteSox JR said this in a story with Nightengale at USA Today. Said he went to bet for Ozzie for other managerial jobs but that he burned bridges on the way out of Chicago and he wouldn't be the Sox manager.

    September Call Ups

    Brantley not on the 40-man. Don't expect him to come up. What's the point? I think Liriano has a chance. They need to make a decision on keeping him. Just named IL player of the week. I expect Covey, Giolito, Liriano and maybe Danish or Fulmer.

    White Sox acquire Steve Johnson

    Hope he's better than the Steve Johnson who was a stiff 7-foot center at Oregon State.

    Reynaldo getting the call and the ball on Friday

    Any word if Kopech goes to Charlotte to take his place?

    ITS ALIVE!!!

    And the Wrigleys have lost three straight, getting pummeled by Goldschmidt and Muryphy. Oh, Happy Days!

    ITS ALIVE!!!

    Welcome back. at first I thought the problem was with my internet. unplugged and checked all the settings. Then I realized Sox Talk was gone -- and I worried it would never return Now I can exhale.

    7/31 Games

    Dunning 10 Ks in 5 innings.

    7/31 Games

    Dunning has been the most pleasant addition to the system. Dominant at Low A. And keeps improving at High A. Long way to go but getting Lopez, Dunning and Giolito for Eaton might be Hahn's best haul.

    Lopez coming sooner, rather than later?

    Most interesting development last night was not losing on an HBP after not scoring on on HBP because Davison swung at the pitch. Pelfrey was in the pen -- and it sure seemed as if he was going to close if the Sox went ahead. Benetti mentioned that there has been talk of Pelfrey going to the pen. If that is the case, don't you have to believe Lopez will be up and added to the rotation? Garfien kind of alluded to it during the post-game show. But I haven't seen any stories. It's time.

    QUOTE (fathom @ Jul 30, 2017 -> 01:25 AM) Another org....bust for bust trade. either that -- or move him to the pen and hope he can learn to grind out one inning with max effort. What they're trying now ain't working.

    20 Year Anniversary of the White Flag Trade

    Whatever happened to Mike Caruso? Or Lorenzo Barcelo?

    Will Eloy Jimenez get to AA this year?

    .500? in 2019? They'll be lucky to be .400
