Recommended Posts

I just read that in addition to Hendriks leading the majors in Wins...he also leads the majors in most hits allowed at 159....baseball is weird.

Very Buehrle-esque

2-1 so far if you've been betting opposing team's runline.

3-3 got one back today after a couple Reds losses. Still positive overall.

Cubs getting no-hit going into seventh with a rain delay. Wonder of the KC pitcher comes out if the game resumes. If the Sox lose one game to the Cubs next weekend, it will be a disgrace.

The Cubs lost their 12th straight at home, but celebrated not being no-hit. They have nothing else to celebrate. I hope their "loyal" fans are having a good time.

Only 29K at game yesterday, is it possible the faithful is wavering?? 

I think the faithful have been wavering for some time. The team will still draw well with the losing. But I think the Lovable Loser stuff is fading and has been fading. Their FO must know they have to do something meaningful this offseason. Maybe it's me, but I think Cub fans have become bitter since 2016. There is some real anger out there.

Everything changed after 2016.  This ownership group also hasn't done themselves any favors with the fan base.

The bad guys are only averaging 6200 more fans a game to date, is it possible we could overtake them by yrs end??

Because I am a huge fan of Rick Hahn and front office strategy in general I will give my thoughts 

I the interview with Jed Hoyer after they selled, which u can find on YouTube, some things he said made total sense and others were kind of questionable.

In the years of 2017-2020 they spent quite a bit of $ trying to add to the core they had so they could be great. It backfired financially I guess.

What does make sense is Lester,Rizz,KB,Baez, and Schwarber were not worth huge $ they wanted. But to me it's kind of crazy to just let go of everybody.

We'll see if the prospects they got are gonna be good, and in 2-4 years they will have alot of money to spend and they will buy some players. The white sox kind of did similar things although we never let go of nearly ALL of our good players.

He referenced other teams that have had down years, then got good again "the right way".

I have friends who are Cardinals fans and John Mozeliak has a little Kenny William's in him as they try to compete every year, and in the last 6 years they are average ballclub.

The Tribune acts like it still owns the Cubs. It had a game story of the Sox pounding the Cubs. Then there were two stories about the Cubs so-called rebuild. The Cubs are almost 20 games under .500, get pounded on almost daily basis, and are going nowhere. The Sox are 20 games over .500 and going to the playoffs. So, let's write about the team that will be losing for some time to come.

The Tribune is the suburban newspaper, like the Daily Herald more readers are Cub fans.

The Daily News was the city paper, than the Sun-Times for a few years until Murdoch trashed it in the early 80s. That’s when we stopped getting the paper at home.

The Daily Southtown was a good paper for Sox coverage. The Athletic has the best current coverage.

The Herald had better Sox coverage than the Tribune in those recent times when the Trib didn't have a regular Sox writer.  At least now they have LaMond Pope on the beat and he's man for the job, IMO.

I had to check the name, but Scot Gregor has been on the Sox beat for the Herald for over 20 years and he knows what he is doing as a writer.  This while the Tribune couldn't afford a regular Sox beat writer.
