    GM Roundtable

    Is this the one with Hahn, Anthopoulos, and Rizzo from last year or is it a new one?

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    Jerry has a smart ass/New York sense of humor that is always being taken out of context. I don't blame him for never doing interviews. This "controversy" reminds me of these scenes in My Cousin Vinny....

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    How does one even "aim to build a second place team?" He probably meant fans are most happy with ownership when their team is on the cusp and said it in a funny manner.

    2005- Ancient history 1985- Invaluable information relevant to the 2020 season

    Back To The Future 4- Marty McFly goes back in time to save Dave Dombrowski’s job in 1987. You guys are something else. I can only imagine knowing you in real life -holding 40 year old grudges and bringing up mistakes people made decades ago.

    Some of those criticisms are valid and are separate from people acting as if not making the playoffs in 2019 is some additional blemish against Hahn and the organization.

    No. Hawk being GM for one year in the 80’s is irrelevant.

    I just don’t see the point in complaining about a playoff drought increasing during the 3rd year of a rebuild you support. When they began the rebuild, I accepted the fact that they wouldn’t be in the playoffs in 2017-18 and probably 2019. It seems unfair to me to say “I support the decision to enter a rebuild, but I reserve the right to b**** about how long it’s taking” If you had a car that wasn’t running correctly for 8 months and you finally took it to a mechanic who told you repairs would take 4 weeks, would you get progressively angrier at the mechanic each of the four weeks? And justify it by bringing up instances other mechanics disappointed you in 1985 and 1998?

    Once the rebuild started, I think you need to judge the progress of the rebuild. The playoff drought is temporarily irrelevant. They were never making the playoffs the last three years. Even more irrelevant is the white flag trade or Hawk’s tenure as GM which happened before most players on the team were born.

    Record-wise? They’d definitely would have won more games at the MLB level. Not sure what you’re getting at.

    This is Coop's thing (and has been forever) and it gets tiresome. He even acts like Garfein is too negative when he goes on White Sox Talk Podcast and Garfein kisses his ass for 45 minutes. Here's where he has a point- Sox Twitter has taken a super negative and petty turn this year and its gotten just as tiresome. The Machado thing broke the fanbase. The team is in the middle of a rebuild. I keep reading people say "The team has had losing seasons X years in a row" or "Rick Hahn's record is X" as if that offers some insight. The team essentially tried to lose the past few years. In two weeks, that will finally end. The Sox record in 2017-2019 is largely irrelevant and Rick Hahn's winning percentage doesn't tell much of a story by itself. The perfect example of useless negativity- Josh Nelson keeps tweeting every time Kyle Lewis does something positive (with the implication that the Sox should have drafted him). I guess I understand why bloggers/podcasters do it. It riles people up and he gets clicks and downloads. If Zack Collins and the Sox fail, he gets to run around and say "I told you so." If they end up being great, no one will care to call him out. If I was trying to make money off of covering the team and I had no access, not many original thoughts, and not much of a personality, I'd probably take the same approach.

    SoxMachine guys are the worst. I can't figure out if they really believe what they tweet or its a strategy for increasing their visibility.

    2020 RF options

    Would it be easier to sign/trade for a CFer and play Robert in RF?
