    ALONSO LINEUP EFFECT

    Alonso looks like another Hahn bust. The White Sox would have been better off keeping Avi Garcia and not signing Alonso.

    Future White Sox Lineup #GetExcited

    The lineup is certainly something to be upbeat about. Still, I wish I could feel the same way about the starting pitching. I'm afraid that Hahn will trade off some of the young talent for some old pitching.
  3. The White Sox couldn't get a bag of balls for Fulmer in a trade.

    Giolito to 10 day IL, Cordell & Fulmer recalled

    I was hoping that Cease would be brought up. I would have liked seeing him against Baltimore next week. Cease going 5 innings against the Orioles would have been interesting.

    The Rick Hahn Dynasty

    Hahn has the worse record of any GM in MLB the last 6 seasons. He has wasted millions of dollars on bad players. He won't sign any premium free agents but will waste millions of dollars on LaRoche, Shields, Jay, Alonso and numerous other players. He should count his blessings he still has a job.

    Time for a change ... Don Cooper needs to go

    I went to a Season Ticket holder event and Brooks Boyer said that Cooper has his job for as long as he wants it. So unless Cooper wants to leave, he's here as long as JR owns the team.
  8. You might be right. What a terrible thought.
  9. Some White Sox fans (including myself) have been hoping for some time that JR would sell the team. This team has always made money for the owners but if what Forbes is saying about the White Sox being so profitable is true. And I have no doubt there report is accurate. Realistically as along as this team is making some major money does anybody really think JR would sell the team? I would think there is a better chance of him selling the team if it was losing money. It looks to me like we are stuck with this ownership and all we can do is hope for the best.

    Simple. This is called losing on purpose, tanking while the owner is laughing all the way to the bank.
  11. JR has said for many years that it is more profitable owning a MLB team with a low payroll. I get that and I get the fact that baseball is a business and your objective with that business is to make money. Still, how much money is enough for JR. Forbes Magazine has pointed out that JR is a billionaire. How much more money does he need? I've said before that this rebuild/tanking is going to be done as cheaply as possible. If it works fine. If it doesn't, it doesn't. JR will just keep making more and more money. He should be ashamed to put out a team as bad as the White Sox have been for years now. Obviously he doesn't care. There weren't too many White Sox fans who shed a tear when Bill Veeck sold the team. Sometime, somewhere, someday JR will sell the White Sox and there won't be any tears shed when a new owner comes in. I'm still hoping he sells the team sooner rather than later.

    What Now?

    JR always responded to my letters over the years. He didn't respond to the letter I wrote him requesting to be interviewed for the White Sox GM job. He made a mistake in not interviewing me. The White Sox would be a better team today if I was the GM. I thought that I was the perfect fit for the job. I like to think I know more about baseball than Hahn and I wouldn't have to be paid to much. I don't need the money. Everybody would have been better off if I was the GM.

    What Now?

    This 2019 season is starting to look like one of the worse seasons in White Sox history. I would like to think something will be done to try and change this. Some people (including myself) would love to see new ownership. Others would like to see Hahn and Renteria gone. It doesn't look like any of that will happen. I would think that Dylan Cease will be called up soon. This starting pitching staff can't get anybody out. I don't see the harm of bringing up Cease. If he is called up and succeeds in getting people out, you keep him up here. Nobody else can get anybody out, I say bring him up.

    The Rick Hahn Dynasty

    I will say the following for the last time 1) Low White Sox payrolls equals more moola for JR and his investors. 2) This rebuild/tanking will be done as cheaply as possible.

    The Rick Hahn Dynasty

    This is the 7th year of the Rick Hahn Dynasty. I never thought for one minute that the White Sox would sign Harper or Machado. I wasn't the least bit upset when they signed elsewhere. This team is never going to spend $300 million on any player. I did think that Hahn would upgrade the pitching staff. He did upgrade the back of the bullpen. He did nothing to improve the starting pitching. This starting rotation could go down in history as the worse in franchise history. I can't help but wonder, is Hahn this incompetent/stupid ? or is he trying to lose as many games as possible with the hope of getting a high draft choice?
