    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.

    Offseason Targets

    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.

    Offseason Targets

    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.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Younger White Sox fans have no idea how Caray and Piersall dumped on TLR. It was relentless. Every time TLR stuck his head out of the dugout he got booed. It was shameful how TLR was treated when he was here as the manager.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I heard that Hahn isn't happy about the TLR hire. Maybe Hahn will quit and i will finally get my interview for the White Sox GM job.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I talked to Roland Hemond at Soxfest a few years ago. He said he will never forget how White Sox announcers Harry Caray and Jimmy Piersall dumped all over TLR. In his long career on baseball he said he never saw anything like it. Turns out the announcers were wrong about TLR.

    Trevor Bauer Thread (Mazara Free Zone)

    Hahns free agent signings have been bad. In addition, he has wasted millions of dollars on those free agents. Its staggering the amount of money he has spent on free agents that haven't turned out well.

    Mazara and Right Field Thread

    I read where Washington might not pickup the option on Adam Eatons contract. Would Eaton be a good fit here with the White Sox?
  10. It depended on the subject. He sometimes responded and other times Rob Gallas responded. The last few years I haven't received any type of response from him. Whenever possible I will continue to write him. Hopefully i will get a response.
  11. JR doesn't respond to my letters anymore. He use to respond to me, not anymore. Its really a shame because I've really made some good suggestions about improving the White Sox but like I said he doesn't respond to my letters anymore.
  12. Renteria= 3 losing seasons + 1 winning season= getting fired. Hahn= 7 losing seasons + 1 winning season= he keeps his job. Strange.

    Guess the pitcher we add in the offseason

    I've seen JRs act since day one of his White Sox ownership. All he cares about is making more money. From that standpoint he has been the most successful White Sox owner in the teams history. Other than his financial success he has been a lousy owner.

    We are mad at the wrong Rick

    I remember when the White Sox fired Tony LaRussa. JR made sure that LaRussa had another job lined up with Oakland. The Angels just fired there GM. Maybe the Angels might want to hire Hahn. If so, they can have him. Maybe just maybe JR will come to his senses and give me my long awaited interview for the White Sox GM job. I will give him the most memorable interview he ever had. I've written JR numerous letters requesting to be interviewed for the GM job. Maybe now my time is coming.

    Wasted Money This Year

    It amazes me the amount of money Hahn has wasted the last 8 seasons. It doesn't seem to matter to JR because the franchise is making nothing but money.
  16. 1) I was kidding about the 3 things I listed. I'm very aware that Maddon wouldn't be signed by the White Sox. 2) You're right I could never be hired as the GM as long as JR owns the team. I would simply want to win, something that is not very important to JR.
  17. 1) The Angels just fired there GM Billy Eppler who hired Joe Maddon this year. 2) The new Angels GM fires Maddon and brings in his own manager. 3} The White Sox fire RR and bring in Maddon to manage the White Sox.

    9/26 GT: Cubs @ Sox (6:10pm)

    There have been alot of comments on the internet and in tomorrows Tribune about Frank Thomas critical post game remarks after last nights loss to the Cubs. White Sox management doesn't take kindly to criticisim. I wonder if Thomas won't be asked to come back next year on the postgame show.
  19. I loved Big Hurts comments on the postgame show last night. I welcome his passion for the White Sox He wants the White Sox to win, my type of guy. This last week has been a continuation of the dreadful Rick Hahn era. Last nights game was not only an enbarassment it has to be one of the worse games by a White Sox team in a long time. Giving up 10 runs to a team that can't hit its way out of a paper bag. I wish the White Sox management team had as much passion for the White Sox as Thomas does.

    Fire Ricky

    If JR had the good sense to hire me as the GM I would actually consider bringing Ozzie back.

    Fire Ricky

    I watched the postgame show with Thomas and Ozzie. Thomas was really upset at the loss. Ozzie restrained himself. If RR gets the boot I would not be surprised if Ozzie came back as manager. It doesn't look like anybody else is going to hire Ozzie as a manager. This would be the perfect opportunity for him and probably his last job as manager.

    Fire Ricky

    Obviously this was a tough loss. Still, the team isn't hitting. They only had 4 hits tonight.

    Thread of positivity

    I'm just glad the team has had a winning season. Haven't had that since 2012. Being in the Playoffs is a bonus. Maybe the team can get hot and go deep in the Playoffs. The only major negative that I can see is Yoan Moncada. He obviously is not the same player he was last year. He hasn't recovered from the Covid virus. Hopefully he will come back healthy in 2021. He hit a triple a few games ago and he looked like he was going to pass out after he was safe at third base.

    9/18 White Sox @ Reds at 6:10

    I wasn't aware that he was sick. Did he have the virus?

    9/18 White Sox @ Reds at 6:10

    Mazara has yet to hit a home run. I wonder when was the last time a starting White Sox outfielder went the entire season without hitting a home run.
