    Offseason Targets

    Yep, and in the recent past I would have said no way Jerry is adding significant payroll on pitching, but the Sox seem different lately. Maybe Jerry really will spend some money on pitching. MAYBE.

    Offseason Targets

    Max Scherzer. Nationals payroll will be north of $150M coming off COVID revenue losses. Consensus is The Washington Baseball Team has the worst farm system in baseball. Scherzer is owed $34.5M on a team that is going absolutely no where next year. Stiever, another good young arm and 2 lottery tickets ??? Is that enough? Too much? its just a thought as I sit here drinking a beer(s) watching the Braves / Dodgers

    Evaluating rick Hahn as of after 2020

    I’d give him a C to this point. The three big trades are what is keeping hope alive that this will be an A+ in a year or two. His free agents signings usually flop. A majority of his other trades haven’t panned out. And several drafts provided nothing. But the three trades and a new coaching staff may allow him to be a Southside hero. PS. He has been able to assemble some decent bullpens seemingly out of thin air

    If the Sox sign a TOR like Bauer they’ll only have the money to sign a closer and that’ll be it. There is no need of posterity.

    Offseason Targets

    I agree w your assessment of the situation. As Sox fans let’s play would you rather... A. would you rather have Bauer, resign Colome (or someone less expensive), live with Collins as backup C, bring back Mazara or grab another left handed hitter from the expected DFA scrap heap OR B. would you rather have Stroman, Colome (or someone Hahn deems better) Joc P and a better backup catcher? i’d rather have Option A w Bauer. I’m sick of the second tier signings consistently disappointing.
  6. Why in the living hell is Bummer in and Rodon pitched into high leverage???
  7. I’m done w Renteria. Nice guy. He can babysit my kids, hold my wallet and if he saw my wife naked I’d know it was just one of those weird things that happen... but as a major league manager he is an idiot

    I truly believe resigning him is more important to next years success than another SP or a RF. (now if they want to resign him and add a SP and a RF I ain’t gonna complain none)

    Stone's Throwing of Shade at Ricky

    I sincerely believe hiring and retaining Bevington is the most gawd awful moronic asinine decision The White Sox have made in my lifetime. He made Ventura look good. Not sarcasm... he made Ventura look good!

    What is your predicted pitching rotation next year?

    I don’t think Reinsdorf will spend money this off season. The only money he may spend will be on a closer. And that’s a maybe.

    Man, I was so hoping Cishek would look like he is turning a corner. That was not pretty tonight. The only good thing about him is the beer he makes me drink. Sox Need some innings outta some starters.

    Yolmer sucks, as a hitter. Keuchel needs a good glove at third and Yolmer provides exactly that.

    White Sox Acquire Jarrod Dyson from PIT

    His SB career numbers are very impressive. 85% career success rate. Stole 30 out of 34 attempts last year. Is 4 for 4 this season.

    2021 Free Agent Pitchers

    That would be my choice. One year deal.

    Mendick vs Madrigal

    Yep, I agree. He is limited with that approach, but a lot less frustrating to watch compared to most/ all of his teammates. At least right now. He is going to start to see a steady diet of inside fastballs. I’m wondering if he can start to turn on a few of those. Doubtful. But it would be awesome if he can.

    Mendick vs Madrigal

    I think the Mendick love is based on him going up to the plate with an approach. Look away, hit it that way. Try not to swing at pitches outside the zone. Nice and simple. Normally that wouldn’t be that big a deal, but so far in the 2020 season he is the only Sox hitter that owns a consistent approach.

    So who's the next manager?

    Ricky seems like a good guy and if he ends up as a “special assistant “ to Hahn I’m okay w that. But today broke me w Ricky. Detwiler should have been in there in the 4th to face their heart of theIr order. How in the hell could you think Anderson was ready to throw 4 or 5 innings? It is sadly delusional. I like Ricky, I’d have a beer w Ricky, but he ain’t the long term answer. Neither is Ozzie. It it’s an internal hire go w Jirshcele.

    1 surprise, 1 disappointment, 1 dark horse

    Surprise: Avi is spectacular in the wild card game, playing for the Phillies Disappointment: Lopez, needs more Ks or more ground balls and I’m afraid neither will happen. Dark horse: K Smith provides something at some point worth while
