    Taking a hiatus at the end of the baseball season

    I don't think anyone is saying sports comes first before life. I almost died in an accident last year so I get it. But sports are a great way for men to bond and pass on to their children. Sports takes us away from the harsh realities of life. Sports brings people together in other parts of the country. I was in Florida watching a Sox game at a Sox bar and it was cool to meet other fans and share stories. Again, sports aren't a substitute for life, but they do a great job enhancing it.

    I understand the gist of this post, but it isn't realistic. As men we enjoy our sports because we grow up loving our teams. It's a pride thing and gives us all something to bond over. There is nothing wrong with being attached like I told my SO's sister. She spends all her time watching the fake bachelor, Bachelorette, bachelor's in paradise, etc. Women have their TV shows and things they get attached to and talk about for weeks on end with friends. We have our sports.

    The " Tank" is dead . Let there be Light !

    To be fair this happens to most teams. If our FO knows what they are doing then 2020 will still be a really fun year. Sadly, I don't think they know what they are doing.

    Kopech has a torn UCL, TJS recommended

    Being kept out of 2020 would be the same as losing that year of control.

    Had we waited til next year, we would have lost the year of control and the injury would have kept him out of 2020 as well. The tear was going to happen regardless.

    We need to find a real number two starter at this point. Proceed on next year and hopefully we will have much better luck and player improvement in 2020.

    Giolito is saving his season

    I'll start by saying your post is just not realistic. No one is saying not to put the team first, but how does that fit into what happened yesterday? He punched a great game and it would have been nice not to blow a four run lead again. Wanting the win yesterday has nothing to do with a pitcher being selfish or not understanding the focus of a rebuild. It means they are human and want success when they can get it.

    It's not a one or the other thing. They can prove they belong AND want wins. I think fans in general need to understand athletes are people. If I was a pitcher I'd be lying through my teeth if I said wins weren't significant for me. Hell, when you go to an mlb page to look at stats wins are usually first followed by ERA. When you look to see who your team is playing the pitching match up pops up with their wins/losses record.

    They are human and stats matter most. Wins for a pitcher are what they seek most, even if they aren't as important as they used to be. We also don't want over pitching to compensate for a bad bullpen.

    Eloy Jimenez: I'm Ready (Players' Tribune)

    You may be correct, but you said I was basing it off of absolutely nothing, in which case you are incorrect.

    Eloy Jimenez: I'm Ready (Players' Tribune)

    He said he wanted to play in Chicago his whole life and actually wants to be here, like Abreu. I believe him because the available info validates that. If he wants to play here, and we pay him and we are winning, why wouldn't he want to re-sign? How you screw up re-signing him is by pissing off his agents and team. For them to convince him to bounce.

    Eloy's Camp Unhappy: Grievance Possible

    Eloy's situation is like your girl telling you no sex til marriage. You are ready for it, and it want it, but for bs reasons you have to wait.

    This is one of the parts of a rebuild I hate. I know our bullpen sucks on purpose, but it is tough to watch our starters not get rewarded for pitching their asses of against good teams. We need all the positive mojo we can get for these guys.

    Eloy's Camp Unhappy: Grievance Possible

    For all the checklist bs and plate appearance above A ball bs, he would have been called up if the Sox could lose a year.

    Eloy Jimenez: I'm Ready (Players' Tribune)

    I can see teams getting fucked for doing this. Especially when you do like the Cubs and call the guy up the day after they lose a year. In our case, we probably lost Eloy for that second contract to gain one year. Not very smart on our part since I think he would have re-signed with us.
