How this man and Bruce still get paid to cover baseball, I will never know.

Like...Fegan would have never gotten a shot if The Athletic hadn't exploded, because places want to pay people like them.

You have never heard of Phil?  Do you live in Chicago?

Phil Rogers has been around since the mesozic era, IIRC he hatched from his egg a few years after TLR hatched from his.  Phil Rogers also used to be one of those guys at Baseball America IIRC who told us which prospects we had were good.  I will never forget about the "man-child" Juan Silverio.  Rogers used to just call up Amway salesman Dave Wilder with his Club Burn stuff and various other scams and ask him what to write, and Rogers would just say whatever Wilder told him to say.

Ah, the good old days....¬†ūü§Ę

Rogers didn't mention that the cost of a White Sox game went up 24% this season.

He didn't mention a lot of things.  Although having gone to four games this season I would say it was super affordable

If this Bozo had done his homework he would have learned that since the lessening of Covid restrictions, the Sox have drawn very well, most of the weekend games in the second half have been either sellouts or near sellouts. 25,000 were on hand Tuesday night in a nothing game and on a school night. Last night 24,000 showed up and I will bet that the final 3 games against the Tigers will be near sellouts. Without actually crunching the numbers I will say that the Sox since the Houston series after the break have averaged close to 30,000 a game. Right now the Sox are 5th in the AL in attendance but the 2 Texas teams have had no Covid restrictions at all during the season and I'm thinking we would be ahead of the Rangers if there were no restrictions from the start of the season at GRF.

When a sports journalist can't get the obvious right the 1st time there's no need to read the rest,

Its much more affordable as compared to the team on the Northside. I just hope they keep it affordable and I hope they don't keep raising the prices in the future.

Before  Kimbrel, It's still a league average payroll. Kudos to JR fot being average.

I wish I had never heard of him or Bruce Levine.

What Phil fails to realize is that attendance is up 1 million + % over 2020, making it the largest year-over-year attendance increase ever!

Maybe a bit off subject but one of the oddest things I ever heard from Bruce Levine on the radio was from years ago.  Someone called in unhappy about not being able to get playoff tickets.  Bruce's solution for the guy was to hang out at the ballpark and get to know people in the organization and that's how he'd get tix.  Thanks Bruce.

The attendance issue is old and worn out. People have no obligation to go to a baseball game no matter JR spends or doesn't spend. Phil is MLB kiss ass.

I think my favorite part is Phil stating that they are in financial peril

Well he's consistent with his other analysis that I've seen.  As I recall, he judges the winner of trades as the team that received the most players.

He also said the Sox losing the first game of the playoffs to the Mariners in 2000 was the best thing that could happen to them.

To Phil's credit, if the Sox used that method of analyzing trades, we never would have traded Tatis/Johnson for Shields.

I dont know about the rest of you, but I really start to question the validity and expertise of publications like Forbes when they let Phil fucking Rodgers freelance for them.

In other words, don't believe everything you read.

That was my Ted Talk.
