    A Realistic Offseason

    I wouldn't be surprised if they went "The kids can play" route. We shall see.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Your optimism overwhelms me. A payroll of $153 million is something that I will believe when I see it.

    Steve Stone not returning to the booth next season???

    Stone is smart enough to know that the White Sox are his last stop in his broadcasting career. At his age he wouldn't be hired by anybody else.

    JR is going to come to his senses and fire Hahn and make me the White Sox GM.

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    Does anybody know how much more the TV deal is paying the White Sox? I haven't read anything as too how much the new deal is worth.

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    JR has said for many years that a winning team is expensive. Keep in mind that Forbes magazine said that the 2018 white Sox (which lost 100 games) were the 6th most profitable team in MLB. As long as the team payroll is low the white Sox franchise is a goldmine for JR and his investors.

    Who would still want Maddon?

    How about Renteria AND Hahn going to the Northside and Maddon AND Epstein coming to the Southside.
  8. I would be a better owner than a GM. I'm dead serious about this.

    A Realistic Offseason

    With Robert and Madrigal in the 2020 White Sox lineup I don't expect Hahn to add much to the lineup this off season. Marco Gonzales was rumored to be traded a few months ago. He might be a target for Hahn. He's young and he 's a lefty. something the White Sox don't have in their rotation. Hopefully they will acquire either Odorizzi or Wheeler to help out the starting rotation. Other than acquiring starting pitching I don't expect a lot of activity from Hahn.
  10. In todays Sun Times Renteria said the organization has to go outside and acquire some players for next season. He said that this will be a very important off season for the White Sox. It will be interesting how this plays out. I don't think they're going to spend a lot of money to sign free agents but we shall see.

    9/22/2019 White Sox v. Tigers

    I'm under the impression that Giolito, Kopech, Cease and Lopez will be in the White Sox starting rotation in 2020. I'm hoping they're having second thoughts about Lopez. I realize that the White Sox minor league system isn't loaded with pitching but I'm hoping that they acquire somebody who can take the place of Lopez. If anything put Lopez in the bullpen pitching long relief.

    White Sox final win total

    Your optimism amazes me. I wish I felt the same way about the White Sox signing some good free agents. I hope you"re right.
  13. I've always thought that this so called rebuild has not been taken seriously by the Owner and management. This has always rubbed me as if the team wins, fine and if they lose, so what. As long as the owners are making money I don't think they really care if this team starts winning. Still, this has gotten to the point where some changes have to be made. After Saturdays night loss Renteria should be fired ASAP. The White sox lost on a walkoff home run that wasn't a home run. All Renteria had to do was challenge the play and the replay clearly showed it was not a home run. Even the White Sox TV announcers confirmed that before todays game. Renteria should have been fired before todays game.

    Could the White Sox hire Dave Dombrowski?

    Let Boston take Hahn and have JR sign DD.

    Free Agency - How confident are you?

    When the White Sox brought in Carson Fulmer last night, Steve Stone mentioned that Fulmer has to start taking advantage of being called up again. Stone said the 2020 rotation is going to be Giolito, Lopez, Cease, Kopech and probably Rodon and Dunning. Some people seem to think that Stone has become a mouthpiece for JR and judging by his comments last night, he seemed like he was telling White Sox fans don't expect any pitchers to be added via free agency.
