Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

Hate to break it you, but I don’t give a damn about your personal interests. There’s a bigger picture than a 2nd tier closer on an at best .500 team. And if you can’t understand that Alex Colome is 2nd tier you are either a giant homer or just don’t understand what you are discussing. 

And if you can't understand that 14 for 14 is 100% and the absolute best that a closer can possibly do, I really have to question what grade you got in 6th grade math.

So the Sox get a few or couple more wins THAT YEAR!! That's two or three more times White Sox fans are happy and a few less times they're not depressed. I don't understand how you people who argue to flip our quality veterans act like wins never really matter. They matter. Winning is fun; losing sucks. You "flip" guys all get hard ons because some prospect is kicking ass in High A while the major league team is losing 100 games.

Vile: Many fans aren't like us. They think we are the illogical ones and the idiots. You and me like to go to a game and win and be happy on that given day, not dreaming of losing and getting some draft pick. Quite frankly fans like you and me are the exception on the board rather than close to the majority. I still get pissed the nights we lose although I will admit Hahn has gotten me very very very used to losing. It's not a good feeling that I have been conditioned to expecting losses.

And you know what?? I am a giant homer!!

Trading David Robertson for Blake Rutherford  was simply a salary dump. It has to rank as one of the worse trades Hahn has made.

Ummm how about the Tatis trade? Montas trade?

I see what you mean but it makes sense losing a bit for the betterment of our rebuild. I want to keep Colome because we could really use him next season. Winning is fun and we should actually try to learn how to win this year. Losing on purpose should be over and we should only trade players if we get knocked off our feet with the return.

Oh, you mean a guy like Blake Rutherford, right? You know, Blake with his .230 batting average down in AA after having him for two years, let's trade him for a guy like that. 

 

Hey why don't you put some icing on that Blake Rutherford cake since once you do that it means the cake is ready to eat. If Blake Rutherford was a cake he's still baking in the oven, He's barely 22 and .230 is actually him hitting much better lately getting used to the temperature in the oven called AA, He's a kid give him a chance . I don't know how many times this has to be repeated but development is not linear, In order to succeed you must taste failure.

That doesn't seem to impress anyone nearly as much as it impresses you.

Good for you..I’m not telling you how you should/shouldn’t think. Of course I think you’re thinking with your fan heart instead of your head, but we’ll agree to disagree

Does anyone believe there is a single playoff team that would view colome as anything more than 7th inning depth?

Sure he's definitely in the mix for 8th inning and in case of injury could close, Has had plenty of experience at it and success. If you need a double play rather than a K i think he's a good choice.

Some on this board never gave up on Jones. I never wish injuries on anybody but with him you could see how he'll get hurt over and over. His pitching mechanics should have been fixed long ago. Some of the worst motion I've ever seen.

Couldn't hold a runner on to save his soul.  Every time a runner ran it was called indifference.

I don't like losing at all. I don't like rebuilding at all so don't lump me in with the analytics crowd. HOWEVER the worst place you can be in baseball is in that middle ground, the Twilight Zone if you will, so you win 75 games instead of 73. Big deal. You either need to be very good, good enough to make the playoffs ON A CONSISTENT BASIS or you need to be so bad that you can get the best prospects. (Of course that infers you have a competent front office)

Robertson helping the Sox win a few more games on a bad team means absolutely nothing. ZERO, nada, nyet in the long term.

I'd rather be happy having a good team that has a shot to be consistently good than being happy for one night because Robertson helped win a game and pushed the season total to 74 or 76 or 78.

I don't see why that is so hard to understand.

In a perfect world the White Sox in the Chicago market don't operate like a small market team but in fact, the reality is until ownership changes that's how they roll, that's who they are. b****ing won't change a damn thing. 

Under those circumstances with the self imposed restrictions from ownership, the only chance they had of getting out of the mess they themselves created was to blow it up and hope they get it right in a do-over.

I don't like that one bit but again logically that was all they could do.

Someday if we outlive current ownership maybe those circumstances will change.
