    WSI

    A friend of mine told me that WSI is no longer around. Is that true? Gee, what a loss if its true. I don't know why anybody would possibly post over there.
  2. If Hahn gave a 34 year old Adam LaRoche a 2 year $24 million dollar contract, I would like to think he will give a 32 year old Jose Abreu the same 2year $24 million contract.

    Rick Hahn and his Trades

    Sitting at the game yesterday I couldn't help but remember that Oaklands pitcher Chris Bassitt was once a member of the White Sox organization. He was traded by Hahn with Marcus Semien for jeff Samardzlia. Bassitt would sure look good in the White Sox rotation. This trade was another bad one by Hahn.

    Game Thread 8/7/19 - Sox @ Detroit

    Ivan Nova has pitched very good since the All Star break. If he continues to pitch this good the final 2 months of the season. I'm wondering if the Hahn will bring him back in 2020.
  5. The 2019 season would have been a lot better if Kopech and Rodon had been healthy. Hopefully both will be able to pitch successfully in 2020. That being said, I still wish that JR would sell the team.

    Henderson Nevada

    It came out recently that Henderson Nevada has tried getting the Arizona Diamondbacks to move to Henderson. They offered to build a baseball only stadium for $1 billion dollars. So far the Diamondbacks haven't agreed to anything. The people in Henderson believe that they are going to get a MLB team sooner rather than later. I hope they don't make the same offer to JR.

    Hahn expects aggressive offseason

    I try not to pay attention to what Hahn says, but hopefully if being aggressive adds some quality free agents to the team I'm all for it. I go to most of these games and White Sox fans deserve a better team than what we've seen the last 7 years. The White Sox crowds have been good this year. This team should draw more people than last year. I think that White Sox fans should be commended for coming out this season. White Sox fans are starving for some winning baseball. Hopefully it starts in 2020.
  8. Its not only pathetic but it seems like this situation is accepted by JR. I guess if he's making nothing but money, the losing doesn't bother him.
  9. Most White Sox fans were disappointed that Hahn didn't acquire any major stars this past off season. Other than Colome and McCann Hahn didn't acquire anybody who helped the team. Wouldn't it be nice if he acquired somebody in the next few days who can actually help the team for the reminder of this season and next year?
  10. I read a interesting article that was about the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates have been bad since the All Star break . Pirates GM Neal Huntington said that he should be held accountable for the Pirates lack of success. I don't know if he will lose his job but its certainly possible. I don't see anybody in the White Sox front office/ownership being held accountable for this present mess. This so called rebuild appears to me as if the team wins or if the team loses so be it. As long as this franchise is making money hand over fist, that's all that matters to this ownership.

    Steve Stone with a dose of reality for Sox fans

    I went to the game last night. It was really a nice night and a decent crowd of 22,000. The Christmas In July promotion was nice. The free T-shirt was wonderful. Hearing the Christmas music before the game and in between innings was nice. They've had this promotion before and I hope they continue to have it in the future. The promotion was better than the game .

    Steve Stone with a dose of reality for Sox fans

    Maybe he has become a houseman for JR. At his age, if he loses his job he won't get another job as a announcer. MLB teams would go with a younger person and he knows it. The White Sox are his last stop before he eventually retires.

    Favorite Piece of White Sox Memorabilia

    I also have the ticket stub from the first Comiskey Park night game from August 14, 1939.

    Favorite Piece of White Sox Memorabilia

    1) The 1942 White Sox poster schedule which lists all of the home games from that season, 2) Every White Sox media guide and yearbook since 1933. 3) Every Topps White Sox baseball card from 1959 to the present. The above have been my favorites. My White Sox collection has been featured in Sports Collectors Digest, Sports Collectors daily and the first edition of the White Sox Encyclopedia by Richard Lindberg. My latest collecting sickness are White Sox bobbleheads. I have 130 different White Sox bobbleheads. I'm running out of room in my mancave.

    Shake-up Needed in Coaching Staff, ASAP

    JR could care less about his legacy. His main objective with both of his teams was making money. He's been very very good at making money. Both of his teams are making him richer every year. As far as the White Sox go, the only thing he has to hang his hat on is the 2005 World championship season. Other than that his ownership of the White Sox has been BAD. It continues to be bad but like I said he's making nothing but money with this team.
