How is every Sox writer/blogger not demanding Hahn be fired?  This offseason is completely inexcusable.

Because they know that the real problem is his boss and the chairman.

At this point, much more effective to publicly state you won't be outbid, come in hard with the highest offer and discourage teams from even bothering.

I prefer having the Phillies think Boras is bluffing about higher offers and them only sticking to their offer, and then Boras saying "fine, you're out" to Phillies.  I'm sure that would never work in the world of professional sports though :)

Nobody can say anymore that the White Sox are cheap.

This might be the most depressing post of the year.  Reading that is about a cheery as reading my own obit.

Sox 2 days ago:  We're going to go down swinging.

Sox today:  We're not going to bid on Harper because we'd probably lose.

as Geddy Lee would say, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

"likely believe they'd only be running up cost for him to sign in Philly or elsewhere. "

This might be the stupidest thing I have ever heard, If there is a modicum of truth to it.

Sox deserve every bit of backlash they recieve.....meet the new boss, same as the Shitty old boss. You can see the next move, signing a guy in Abreu on the wrong side of 30 too a contract extension and thinking this will make them forget about Machado.🔥

Oh god you're probably right.  They will make me loathe Jose as well.

Today I read on MLB trade rumors that Hahn says Sox may not be able to do an in season extension and wait until the offseason to get a new contract done with Abreu.

They should just let Abreu walk. He just isn't that good a player.

That being said: I fully expect him to get a 4yr extension to be a veteran presence and put up a high 700s OPs.

I just talked to "patricia" at the Sox' contact number and voiced my displeasure.  Least I could do.  Won't be spending any money on them this year as well.

With 9819 posts, something tells me you will be spending some money

I think you're seriously underestimating what they just did. And you can fire my post count back at me if you want, I won't even tune in during free preview week this year.

Are you kidding?  Dude I'm at a ZERO as far as interest and my account here is 14 years old.  I haven't been lower than probably a 5 (out of 10) any time in my adult life.  The years I was excited as an adult and had the means to go to spring training -- post Jose signing and post Sale trade with Moncada and Kopech in camp -- I went and spent hundreds on tickets, lodging, food, etc.

Furthermore I've had MLB.tv for the last 12 years.  12 years!  Since I was in college!

That's done.  I'm at a ZERO.  I just booked my annual spring trip and it was 50/50 on if I was going to SoCal or spring training.  Easy choice man, easy choice.  I'll be in San Diego this march, not Tempe.

Futhermore I have bought behind home plate tickets every year the Sox are here in Seattle since I moved here.  That's done.  I spent money seeing them in NYC and Baltimore when I was living in NYC.  I've spent plenty of fucking money on them.  
 

IM DONE.

Not gonna lie I'll probably still go to a few games, definitely less.

But they really killed the obssession over team building, minors, intl fa, whatever. What does it matter when they don't know what they are doing?

It'll be back when they win...whenever that is.

I am still surprised that people still don't get that White Sox fans are not just angry.

They have been patient. They were okay with rebuilding. They were okay with trading away a HOF caliber pitcher. They have been gaslit by this front office the whole winter.

I think the White Sox have crossed the line many people had drawn into the sand. I think these fans are not necessarily gone forever, but the White Sox must operate in good faith first before they can win them back.

The normal part of me would otherwise have been kinda curious whether Moncada is still taking all his reps at 3b, but honestly, I don't care. I don't even want to know.
