  1. Hate to jinx Martin but I’ve liked him this year. He throws 97 when he needs too and has movement on everything. It looks like he gives up home runs every so often but as long as he has a good Defence behind him and doesn’t walk guys he should be in good shape. He’s only had one bad inning this year on the Sox. 

    id like to see Sosa play a lot to show his stuff. I’ve been done on Anderson this year and he started the year with about 7-8 errors right away and is essentially a singles hitter. In the minors roberts used to lead off with madrigal batting second and it was pretty deadly. Why not have Robert lead off and Tim bat second and Tim mostly slaps balls to RF. The lack of lineup thinking fromlarussa is amazing. This team is poorly designed and run by a guy from the 1980s. What a disappointment.

  2. The guy that put the late 50s and 60s teams ( not sure who the person was) together did well. As a little kid I remember great pitching, speed and really good defense.

    hahn is a complete lacky. People like him get the degrees they do because they can’t get anywhere in life without them even though the degrees do nothing to advance his skillset.

    I can’t just see white Sox management when they were thinking about hiring him. “ let’s see, he went to Michigan and the Ivy League and we don’t have a guy like that and everybody is getting one of those guys. Let’s hire him to help Kenny and give Kenny someone to blame all the terrible teams on”.

    lastly I coached hockey in Winnetka and about 5-6 years ago hahn had a kid on a team from another team. The kid wasn’t a bad goalie just small st that point. I met hahn a couple times and was not impressed. I see that now his kid plays on the new trier baseball team. Not sure he plays and pretty sure the new trier coach wouldn’t pick him for the team if he did t have some talent but it looked odd to me.

    hahn is living the dream, growing up in Winnetka, getting all these degrees that are meaningless for his profession and now living there. 

    when he leaves the Sox he may get another job in baseball but I doubt he’d be hired by a top organization as a gm. Other than a couple trades and a few contracts he’s been a bust. And he certainly didn’t earn the right to rebuild the Sox.

  3. I know how the Sox feel.

    I’ve been trying to get my old girlfriend from Connecticut to see me again. She shows interest but the fact that she is married throws a wrench in the whole thing.

    im thinking eventually I’ll win out here so I hope that idiot hahn doesn’t give up.



  4. Martin hits 97 on the gun and has an assortment of off speed stuff he is not afraid to throw in any count.

    I think he has had one bad inning in his time with the Sox.

    I think Montgomery is 1 for sure and it’s going to be tough to not have Sosa at 2. What he’s done at AA is insane and he’s 22 and plays the middle infield. Ramos could be 3. I’m just not sure I’d put him there. 

    Montgomery can play shortstop and there’s real first base risk with Ramos. Both are good prospects though for sure. This isn’t really part of this discussion but I’m curious to see what the Sox do with Ramos. He’s probably two years away from the majors potentially and he needs 40-man protection this off-season. I think he’s one of their most likely trade pieces 

    The problem I have is that other than some stats is all we really have are the players highlights. The highlights of guys like Ramos look fantastic but don’t truly give a complete picture of him which you can only surmise watching in person. To me Ramos looks like a major leaguer right now because all I see him do is flash bat speed and hit homers. There are a million intangible things that going into making a great ball player.

    lastly I see it written on here that “ so and so hasn’t played in a week and where is he”? I’m surprised that this site doesn’t have a contact on each minor league team that can give daily updates on players if needed. An example was the colas situation. He was gone for 3-4 days and nobody here knew anything. Eloy not playing for a day or two . Nobody knew anything.

    Interesting to see how frequently the Sox use openers at the minor league level when that's not something Tony would ever go for with the big league club

    Tony will begone by the time these pitchers get to the big club
