    New Chisox Motto

    The new White Sox motto for 2020 should be= The White Sox will glow in twenty-twenty-o.

    Jean Shepherd's America - White Sox

    Keep in mind that JR changed the design of the upper deck at the new stadium. He wanted the 2nd level of suites which made the upper deck what it is today. The original design didn't have the miserable upper deck. It was JRs doing.

    Jean Shepherd's America - White Sox

    Former sports writer (and lifelong White Sox fan) Bill Gleason maintained that the Old Comiskey Park should have never been knocked down. He said it should have been rehabbed. He also said that the White Sox could have played at Soldier Field while Comiskey Park was being rehabbed.

    How good do YOU think we can be next season?

    If Kopech and Cease produce the White Sox will make a shambles of the Central Division in 2020.

    How good do YOU think we can be next season?

    I don't see why the team can't win 117 games this coming 2020 season.
  8. I'm just hoping that if this team starts winning the White Sox fans come out and support the team. I'm hoping for attendance of 2 million people in 2020.
  9. The White Sox are coming. Tra La, Tra La!!!!

    Road Trips

    PNC in Pittsburgh is my favorite park. I wish the White Sox would have had a stadium like it built here in the South Loop.

    Why has Hahn failed?

    Has it dawned on fans that Hahn hasn't failed? The White Sox have been more profitable during Hahns tenure. As long as the franchise is making nothing but money JR and Hahn are content with this situation.

    Expectations

    I've renewed my tickets for 2020. I'm expecting a Playoff year with at least 100 victories.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    It looks more and more like that the 2020 White Sox rotation will be Giolito. Lopez, Kopech, Cease and whomever. Hopefully these young pitchers come through.
  14. Himes got fired because he didn't get along with JR.
  15. I've written JR a number of letters the last few years where I recommended things that have nothing to do with me being the GM. He use to respond to me years ago, not anymore. Its a shame because I've had some real good ideas that he won't even consider.
  16. There have been rumors for years that JR reads this website. He knows who I am. I want to keep reminding him that I still would like to be interviewed for the GM job.
  17. Hahn should have been fired years ago. The franchise needs a new GM. I've requested to be interviewed for the job a number of times with JR. I still haven't received a response from him. I would give JR the most unforgettable interview he ever witnessed in his life.
  18. JR is loyal to his employees if he likes them.

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    Larry Himes did one thing wrong. He didn't get along with JR. If JR doesn't like you, you're gone. I always thought it was lousy on JR s part when he badmouthed Himes relentlessly after he fired Himes. JR went on TV and radio and dumped all over Himes.

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    Your heart is in the right place about wishing JR should sell the White Sox but realistically its not going to happen. He's making nothing but money with this team. If there is one thing JR is good at, its making money. Believe me he's not going to sell a goldmine. If this team was losing money he would sell ASAP but that's not the case.

    Rick Hahn's Resume as GM

    What posters seem to forget is that the White Sox under Hahn have been one of the most profitable teams in MLB. Forbes magazine said that the 2018 CWS were the 6th most profitable team in MLB. I would make a guess that the 2019 CWS were just as profitable. Low payrolls equal huge profits for JR and his investors. With the new local TV contract the team will be more profitable. I don't expect Hahn spending a lot of money this off season on free agents. Hope I'm wrong, but we'll have to wait and see. I've said it before and I'll say it again the franchise would be better off if I was the GM. I write JR a letter every year requesting to be interviewed for the White Sox GM job. So far I have not received a response from him.

    Hawk Harrelson wins the Ford C. Frick Award

    Drysdale and Hawk were both real good announcers but Harry belonged on the Southside of Chicago. Problem was both JR and Einhorn hated Harry. I've always thought that both JR and Einhorn were jealous of Harrys popularity with White Sox fans. JR bad mouthed Harry for years. JR called Harry "scum" a number of times. He even said that he regretted not firing Harry the first year he owned the team in the middle of the 1981 season. Say what you want about the situation but Harry came out smelling like a rose when he went with the Cubs and wound up on the WGN superstation. Letting Harry go the northside was another one of the major mistakes that JR has done in his years of ownership.

    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.
