  1. We did go backward. We went backward from 2013 to 2019 and 3 of those years were intentional. Just starting to feel like this franchise is cursed. If it's not the front office making stupid decisions, it's a global pandemic. If it's not a global pandemic, it's the very real threat of a lockout. If it's not a lockout, it's the manager. If it's not the manager, it's injuries (which let's be real n injuries have not stopped since the rebuild began.) I was extremely optimistic when this rebuild began. Fully onboard, completely on Rick, Kenny and Jerry's side, pretty much defending all of their moves. Boy do I feel duped. I'm at a loss. Either the franchise really does need a complete change in ownership, like many here have been saying for years or they've had the absolute worst luck in the world. In any case, what we are seeing unfold is extremely sad and this team is no where near where it should be at this point in time. And what reason is there to believe it will change anytime soon? You can't use the schedule as a reason anymore... they're about to get swept by the freaking Baltimore Orioles and fall 5 games below .500 at the end of June.

    GT 6/25: BAL @ Sox (1:10pm)

    If Eloy rejects DH they need to trade him or something. He really has no place to be deciding where he does or doesn't play. Besides didn't this injury happen on the basepaths? Just sucks. I feel bad for him because of how much this hurts him being injured all the time, but at some point he has to accept the fact that his only saving grace right now is his potential with the bat, and he needs to do everything humanly possible to focus on his hitting and get his bat skills honed in, but there isn't much time left for him to turn this around. At least, not with the Chicago White Sox.

    I have slowly stopped watching games. I think I've watched 2 innings of this baltimore series. What a shame. This series and these injuries feel like the nail in the coffin

    I mean not really. Robert doesn't suck. He's hurt seems like every other month or more. Moncada, Grandal, Mendick were all heating up before they got hurt. Anderson is hurt usually a few times a year. Eloy you could make a case for but he wouldn't suck if he weren't hurt so much. Just needs to find a consistent power stroke but you can't do that if you are constantly not playing. Engel is really good in the role he plays. All the pitchers that are hurt don't suck.

    And who is supposed to play instead? Everyone else has strained, torn or broken something.
  6. ScooterMcGuire


    Because all the players this team has been built around are constantly hurt. It's like they don't exist. This team has been playing at like 50% what it should be ever since Hermy left. This season has felt more like 25%. It's been a team akin to mediocrity because the players that are supposed to make them good simply aren't playing. And their backups are hurt. So...this is what you get. What a shame. Fans got pumped up to see certain players play, and rarely do we get to see them, and only a handful of games have they all played together.
  7. Well that's not going to fix it either

    Lenyn Sosa joins the White Sox (Update Pg. 5)

    Rick Hahn's plan for world domination: Step 1-Pay Kenley Jansen to not sign with the Dodgers in the "offseason" of 2021. Step 2-Draft Nick Madrigal and make everyone think he's the next Jose Altuve, but knowing he won't make it due to his inevitability to be injured. Step 3-Trade Madrigal to the Cubs, receive a closer who you know is going to tank (Kimbrel) but actually will make people think the Sox will do well in the playoffs at the time of the trade. Hook. Bonus--screw the Cubs with a trade. Again. Step 4-Make Kimbrel shit the bed. Everyone's pissed, but the goal is to win it all in 2022. So who cares. Step 5-Trade Kimbrel during spring training and receive stud AJ Pollock from the Dodgers. A win for Kimbrel because, Dodgers. Step 6-Sign Big Energy and piss everyone off again, knowing you only need a little more time to show off the real second baseman. Step 7-Let Sosa loose and show everyone his superstar capabilities in the minors. Step 8-Destroy Mendick's legs Step 9-Welcome to the bigs, Lenyn Sosa. Step 10 (yet to come to fruition)- Sosa wins ROY with just half a season of play. Sox win world series in game 7 on a walk-off bomb from Sosa. What a fucking genius. Bravo Rick Hahn.

    I am so confused with how these things work now. Used to be so simple to follow.

    We are getting that much closer to TA catching. I can practically smell it.

    The same thing happened with Grandal, Moncada and now Mendick. They all were just starting to fire on all cylinders and then they got injured. The hits just keep coming.
