  1. My heart is with the White Sox. If some other team offered me the GM job I wouldn't take it.
  2. I'm not familar with the Indians stadium lease but I can't help but wonder if the franchise is going to move somewhere else. The team hasn't drawn that well in recent years with winning teams. i wouldn't be surprised if they wound up moving out of Cleveland.

    Happy New Year

    Can't help but wonder, when will fans be allowed inside the stadium to see the games?

    Hahn was on Phillies interview list

    If Hahn would have gone to the Phillies I might of finally got that interview for the White Sox GM job.

    Sox sign Adam Eaton 1 year, $7m plus option

    I still write JR letters giving him some of my free advice. One of these days he might give me that interview for the GM job. I wrote him a letter a few weeks ago telling him if I was the GM I would sign Eaton. Maybe he took my advice.

    Len Kasper is new White Sox radio play by play announcer

    The ideal situation for me would have been to be the White Sox owner instead of JR. The franchise would have been better off if I had been the owner. His ownership has been a flop. The only positive thing anybody can say about JRs ownership is that it has made him nothing but money.

    I have no interest in being a announcer, just the White Sox GM job.

    Len Kasper is new White Sox radio play by play announcer

    First of all I hate him. Secondly, was he let go by the Cubs? I wouldn't think too many people would leave the TV booth to be a radio announcer.

    Offseason Targets

    I'd rather keep the young talent and sign Quintana.

    Offseason Targets

    I've lived thru Bill Veecks trading Callison, Cash, Mincher, Romano and Battey after the 1959 season. It had devastating results on the White Sox franchise for years after that. I hope they don't start trading there young talent again. Vaughn has so much upside, it would be nuts to trade him.

    Theo Epstein Resigns; Hoyer Stays

    Einhorn was the one who wanted to move the White Sox to Florida. When that didn't happen he sold most of his shares of the White Sox to JR. Einhorn wound up with 1% ownership of the team. He also received a yearly salary from JR. I think Einhorn was given the title of Vice President. He didn't do anything with the White Sox the last 16 years of his life. He disappeared from the scene after he sold most of his shares to JR.

    I think its fair to say that the White Sox franchise has had some lousy owners.

    Offseason Targets

    Other than he saved the White Sox franchise from being moved after the 1975 season, his ownerships with the White Sox can't be looked upon as successful. There weren't too many tears shed when he sold the team after the 1980 season. Its never talked about but Veeck wanted to move the team to Denver after the 1980 season. The American League wouldn't go for it and the team remained in Chicago.

    I couldn't believe it when I heard that Veeck was voted into the MLB HOF. The press always loved Veeck. I couldn't understand it. I thought he was a lousy owner.
