    I thought I remember listening to a podcast where Covey was, like, livid that his previous team left him unprotected on the Rule 5 draft, and how that got him super motivated to prove himself. Never really materialized. Still won't forget that amazing run he had in 2018, where he beat some pretty tough teams, including a gem against the would-be world champion Red Sox. But still thankful he won't be with us anymore. Wonder where he will go. Detroit?
  2. I'd rather throw money at Betts next offseason

    McDowell says White Sox/Larussa Cheated

    What does McDowell have to gain in any of this?

    Frank Thomas; Baseball's 74th greatest player (The Athletic)

    Really dissapointed I was too young to miss his prime years in the Sox uniform. Same thing with Michael Jordan. I wish I got to experience all of that Chicago sports history. Just missed out on it.

    MLB cheating scandal

    Some comments from Astros fans via Astros' message boards regarding Crane firing Hinch and Luhnow: Seems like the Astros could have rebounded from the penalties against them. Crane made sure that wasn't going to happen. Just unreal. Who is the new GM now that all the assistants have been poached? And now for manager. Holy hell. Just speechless. One of the worst 24 hour stretches in Houston sports history The Monday Massacre. Wtf. That would be like the saints firing Payton after he was suspended. Stupid ass move. Whelp boys, it was fun while it lasted

    Hahn is getting all the praise, Theo no longer "Sainted"

    My primary qualms with Ricky last year was the lineup construction. I really didn't have a problem with the bunting, MOST of the time. Sometimes it was like, really wtf are you doing, but mostly it didn't bother me. For all the things to dislike about a manager, it could be a lot worse. Let's not cast stones and wait to see how he handles a talented contending team.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    https://www.nbcsports.com/chicago/cubs/toddler-struck-albert-almora-jrs-foul-ball-has-permanent-brain-injury Damn...Feel so bad for the girl, her family, and Almora. Also one more thing added to the Astros shit-list this offseason. “She (the child) has an injury to a part of the brain, and it is permanent,” attorney Richard Mithoff told the Houston Chronicle. “She remains subject to seizures and is on medication and will be, perhaps, for the rest of her life. That may or may not be resolved.” Mithoff added doctors described the injury as affecting the girl’s central nervous system like how a stroke would. Injuries to the affected areas of the brain can lead to seizures, loss of sensation and spatial awareness, per Mithoff. Other potential effects include periods of unresponsiveness, frequent headaches and night terrors.

    Steve Stone stays in White Sox booth

    I actually really like DJ. Farmer was good in his prime. He just needs to retire.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    Damn...that's a ton of cash for 2 players...esp for one that is now barely a middle of the rotation guy.
  14. https://www.nbcsports.com/chicago/cubs/why-cubs-and-theo-epstein-havent-done-anything-offseason "The 2020 Cubs have lost significant talent from their 84-win 2019 team and have done almost nothing to replace ANY of those players. They still have no payroll flexibility to add even mediocre free agents to augment their roster." “The Cubs are in a trick box. They did a terrible job locking up their young stars to deals that would have extended their window of contention," one executive said. "Yes, they got Rizzo and Starlin Castro but until Kyle Hendricks took a deal they had signed no one else long term from their core guys. Look across your city and see what Rick Hahn has been able to accomplish. He has a great young core and he has been able to sign some of his guys to outstanding deals. The rest of the article is pretty overwhelmingly negative toward the Cubs. Feels good to be on the positive side of things for once...and hopefully it stays this way for a LONG while. The Sox need to work hard not to put themselves in the position the Cubs are in, and it seems like they have already forecasted this exact thing happening, with locking up their young core to good deals.

    Will Harris to Nats

    Ah, yes, thank you both for refreshing my memory. What a shame his career ended up being. Such potential to be an elite arm and injuries just derailed him.
