    Rick Hahn, if you read this board: please don't hire a cheater.

    Your first mistake is making professional athletes a role model for your kids. It’s entertainment, nothing more.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    The bullpen is not dominant in a way that you can win games doing that. And do you really want a manager who has a history of questionable in game decisions to make more of them than usual in an elimination game?

    Dunning didn’t get a chance to grow today. Shame. May be time to find a manager who believes in the future core Hahn assembled.

    Then all the more reason to see if Dunning can get it done with the season on the line.

    They need 3 runs. Not a problem.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    The game didn’t have to be put entirely in the hands of the bullpen. The manager made the decision. If they were going to do anything in the playoffs this year, you trust your future (Dunning) to make a leap in development and win a big game. Managing like you are scared of giving up a run in the first inning doesn’t win you games.

    Dunning was pulled after giving up two singles in an inning. Could’ve just been early game nerves for a rookie. Why not give him a chance to settle in?

    ChiSox @ Tribe, Memorial Day Game Thread

    I’m talking like a high upside top 100-150 guy who might not see the field in a contender’s system for 3-4 years if ever blocked by multiple players. There have to be at least a few players out there in the minors like that.

    Honestly might not be a bad idea to start trying to buy a few high upside bats with cash who are blocked on the AA/AAA squads of playoff contenders to get a look on our major league roster rest of season. Put aside 10-20 mill to make the deals. No reason to keep trotting out our garbage.

    Hilarious how many stiffs are on our 40 man

    This team reminds me of those Tigers teams from the early 2000’s. Let’s get that 1st overall pick for next year.

    5/25 - White Sox @ Tigers Game Thread

    Complain to the player's association for putting ever increasing salaries ahead of everything else. Without a salary cap in the league small and mid market teams will always be forced into top to bottom rebuilds. These teams have no margin for error when it comes to big FA signings.

    2018 MLB Draft

    The ball is not the only thing juiced my man

    2018 MLB Draft

    He has really good movement on all his pitches. I can't see him busting unless he gets injured or has issues with locating pitches.

    What is up with Lucas Giolito?

    The Sox knew they were getting a guy who needed work when they acquired Giolito. It's the reason they got 2 other great pitching prospects along with him.

    Jose Abreu

    And the #1 overall pick next year

    Jose Abreu

    Not worth it for what we would get back. He's easily our best hitter.

    5/25 - White Sox @ Tigers Game Thread

    Awful positioning by Narvaez on the relay allowed that runner to score. Why wasn't he in front of home plate so he could apply a quick swipe tag? He was like 3 feet behind home plate.
  19. Clearly a DFA candidate 🙄

    Trey Michalczewski

    He could actually get some time at 3B on the major league roster this year. Worth a look. Let's see what he can do at AAA.
  21. Well having inconsistent mechanics and loss of velocity can easily be explained by compensation due to injury.....
  22. These guys just don't care. Renteria gotta go. Omar time.
  23. I think he may be playing injured unfortunately.
  24. No, it's not a hard choice, considering the team is running Santiago and Shields out there 2/5 days. He will pitch the whole year. Stop watching if you can't handle it or want him to fail.

    Jose Rondon being recalled

    Ok let's wait and see. The strikeouts are a little more under control and he's walking more now. But it hasn't translated much to pitch selection when he does swing - more selective at the plate but still a free swinger which is odd. That makes me think he is looking for pitches in a location of the plate but not a specific pitch. Don't put all our eggs in one basket and draft a SS this year or next. System is dry.
