    If White Sox are sold

    Man, some of you guys are clueless. There has been 1 baseball team relocated since 1973. The White Sox are a charter franchise, that has played in the same mile radius for nearly 120 years, longest of any team in North American sports. Teams move primarily for 1 reason, they don't have an adequate stadium. Nearly every move since the turn of the century has fallen into this: Expos, Sonics, Rams, Chargers, Raiders... The Thrashers played in a modern stadium, but their ownership group wanted them out of there. TV and sponsorship money playing second fiddle in Chicago than it's ever going to be in friggen Portland or Charlotte.

    Cheap White Sox gear

    Seconding Marshalls/TJ Maxx. Can get some great deals, but it all depends on timing. Fanatics and Lids.com have a lot of sales and clearances too. One thing to keep in mind is that the Nike league wide contract starts next season. That means all of the Majestic branded jerseys and gear is going to be heavily discounted next offseason, just as was the case when the NFL ditched Reebok for Nike and the NHL went from Reebok to Adidas. So next winter will really be the time to stock up.

    So you'd rather the owners keep more money?

    Renovations to Ballpark

    There's a bar counter for your food/drink and a cushioned chair, that's way better than sitting at an aluminum picnic table IMO. That would hurt my ass after 3+ hours.

    Renovations to Ballpark

    Ticket prices are out, and for most games it's only a few dollars more than the $22 you paid. In the end it's nearly the same thing, just a little higher up and with way more availability. https://www.mlb.com/whitesox/tickets/pricing
  7. 22k is still awful, though. Maybe they could've gotten 30 in a better location.
  8. This is sooooo much more complicated and time consuming than just having 1&2 earn byes and 3-6 & 4-5 play a 3 game series, ideally just at the higher seeds park.
  9. 16 games vs. 162. Don't be ridiculous.
  10. If the Rays played where the Bolts did they would draw. Amalie is right in the heart of downtown and very accessible. Playing way out in St. Pete is a killer for the Rays. Just as elsewhere in the state, the Panthers play in the middle of nowhere and no one goes. They would draw much better if they played where the Heat do.

    The Twin Cities are great but MOA sucks!

    Cubs bringing in mystery partner for network

    College teams - All are tied to their conference TV deals, so unless you're talking coaches shows and the like, not an option. Fire - Signed with ESPN+ for 2 more seasons Wouldn't be surprised if they end up carrying Wolves games. They currently air their games as time buys on CW50 and The U Too. Marquee could offer to show them for free and would give them increased exposure.

    Cubs bringing in mystery partner for network

    Writer spun this bad. The partner Crane likely was talking about is Sinclair, not a team partner. And the multiple others is the TV providers who are involved in negotiations.
