    White sox could be dark horse for machado

    Ok that's what I thought. I always took him as more of an "open mouth, say things" type (to steal that line from Matt Spiegel).

    Has Kaplan ever been in on any Sox info before? I know he's all in the Cubs stuff, but can't say I've ever recalled him breaking anything Sox related.

    What Can Be Done to Fix this Mess?

    You are aware that in fact not everyone is A) the same emotionally and B) handles grief differently? This hill you're choosing to die on here is very telling.

    2018 Attendance Thread

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Apr 10, 2018 -> 11:47 PM) Greg, they have tickers/turnstile counts...so, unless they ALSO counted the staff/security/vendors (highly unlikely, they have separate entrances), that's probably deadly accurate. Just because they were not in the seats doesn't mean they weren't on concourses, restaurant, suites, etc. That's the smart play, heading right to the bar or stadium club inside so that you don't have to sit outside and freeze. I did that over the weekend while attending, lasted outside no more than a half hour before the lady wanted to leave bc it was too cold. If you're going and able to get in one of those areas why wouldn't you (considering the elements)?

    Abreu and the Hall of Fame

    Wouldn't that be something, Jose goes from DFA-worthy to possible HOF-worthy...quite the career 180 if you ask me

    Home Opener Game Thread! White Sox vs Tigers

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 10:12 AM) This is hysterical. This team isn't supposed to contend, how could it possibly be a bigger trainwreck than the 1991 home opener? Opening a new park. Optimism about winning a division, lose 16-0. I was going to mention that as well. IMO, that is way uglier of a loss than a meh bullpen bullpenning all over itself in a developmental year.

    Home Opener Game Thread! White Sox vs Tigers

    QUOTE (WBWSF @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 09:33 AM) 1)Yesterday was my 48th Opening Day. I've been to good games, and bad games on Opening Day. Yesterdays loss was easily the ugliest loss on Opening Day that I have attended. The bullpen blowing the game and the terrible defensive play by L. Garcia was really ugly. 2)When Hahn Traded Robertson, Jennings Kahnle and Swarzak last season he left the team with one of the worse bullpens in the history of the team. At best I thought he might improve the bullpen this off season. I think its fair to say that this bullpen has not been improved. 3) I can't help but wonder if the game plan with this team is to have another bad season which will result in another high draft choice and a even lower team payroll. The White Sox are 28th in payroll and it could probably in lower next year. 4) One of my major beefs against Rick Hahn is his signing players who are not any good and paying and wasting millions of dollars on them. LaRoche, Keppinger, Holland and now Soria were all acquired By Hahn. All of them didn't produce and were paid millions of dollars. 5) Attendance. It was certainly cold at the game yesterday and I'm sure it didn't make anybody come to the game as a walkup. Still to only have 33,000 at the home opener is not exactly anything to be happy about. Most Opening Day tickets are usually sold out weeks in advance. This tells me more and more people are not buying into this rebuild. Yesterdays crowd might be the biggest crowd of the year. 6) I see this so called rebuild going on for years. I wish that JR would sell the team. Classic post, water is wet.
