    Manny: Nope, still no news

    Pretty sure my dog barked the name manny today, has to be a sign, or i have baseball fever in the middle of winter.

    Manny: Nope, still no news

    Everytime i hear the new message ping i keep hoping its saying he has signed.
  3. It just seems like its to much money for either of these players, but i guess when you go down the road five years other contracts maybe similar, but it does scare me committing so much money to one player.

They have made a ton of moves the last few years, again, they just haven't worked out. They know there is a problem, and are trying to fix it. It just isn't the way that most people want to see. But they are trying. maybe thats the problem, they are not doing what everyone else can easily see they should be doing.

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Aug 25, 2016 -> 12:32 PM) This is a franchise that has turned over the entire roster in the last few years, and has made a ton of moves specifically in the last two years. The problem isn't worrying about the product on the field. The execution hasn't been there, but it hasn't been for a lack of effort. No this is a franchise that has refused to rebuild and have made numerous questionable off season moves cause they believed we were only a few players away from competing, the moves are enough to tease the fans to thing we are doing the right thing but in all honesty we are not, now we have a bad product on the field no minor league talent but we have a great new name of the ballpark.

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Aug 25, 2016 -> 12:24 PM) Ok...all of you are beyond ridiculous. If this were 2005 and the White Sox were winning, no one would care. The reality is this gives money to keep the stadium nice, making it a more attractive place to watch the game, while also providing the Sox with some additional revenue opportunities (other cell deals + the fact that as part of this they inked a separate deal with Guaranteed Rate). And you know what, none of you have to call it anything other then Sox park or Comiskey. You can call it whatever you want. This deal has absolutely zero correlation with the White Sox current track record / on field performance and if anything, should give some slight positives in the sense that they should have some additional revenue that could actually go to the club payroll as a result of this. No fan is not going to go because of the stadium name, etc, and no player is going to play worse because there is a downward arrow on a sponsor's logo (and if they are creative they can tie it into some marketing, where Sox pitchers ERA's continue to trend lower..just like the rates you can get on your next mortgage from Guaranteed rate. I realize the Sox suck, but all of your a bunch of overreacting whiners who would whine about anything vs. focusing on whining about what matters (the product ON the field). Maybe the problem is instead of worrying about the product on the field ownership is more interested in changing the name of the field so they can have more options to make money without putting a good product on the field.

    The only positive i can see in this is that the sox wont be going anywhere for a while. This season has been a joke though, and unfortunately keeps getting worse.

    White Sox trade Zach Duke to the STL Cardinals

    When i hear about numerous skills i always fear he is the "toolsy" player we like to look for.

    THE 'MURICA GDT: Yanks at Sox

    really intrigued to see how the team plays when they put morneau in the dh spot. even better when jackson is back too. I mean really could justin do worse than avi is right now?

    Sox Winner!

    Maybe wishful thinking but hopefully its a turning point for the sox and shields. He has been really bad the last few games with us and the padres, maybe seeing his team bring it back might get him going.

    Nationals (Scherzer) @ Sox (Shields)

    I think this the the game we turn it around in, big game james is gonna start a nice streak for us.

    5/1 Game thread: @ Baltimore, 12:35pm, CSN

    so any idea what sands wears on his thumb when he bats, also what kind of mouth piece does lawrie use, heard stone talk about it a little but then they talked about something else.

    4/5 Sox @ Oakland

    The eaton thing was after the homerun high five. I love how rollins and lawrie were working on their victory high five after the game. Hope they get to do it a lot.
