Oh, don't you worry. Nothing to worry about! Don't let this disgraceful baseball and empty park get you down. You see, this is only "Year 1" of the mighty "3 Year Plan" that is going to right this ship and get us back to the winning ways of a yesteryear long ago. Once we really get going on the rest of this plan, you'll see! You'll see the greatness that JR (Moe), KW (Larry), and Hahn (Curley) have coming our way. Just two years to go!!

Best part was 3 year plan was never was mentioned till late July when they were playing so bad. :snow

It really is remarkable how these acquisitions of stable consistent vets keep becoming the worst players in baseball as white sox. More bad luck I guess. Nothing we can do.

 

They come from the NL. Aging DH and pitchers don't translate well to the AL at least for the White Sox. They need to stop.

"Paying premium prices for mid level free agents" seems to be a particular recipe for failure and it's been our favorite move for a decade.

Well, I won't forget it, but I will certainly be very happy if we become a winning ball club next year and return to the postseason. That's all that matters: being competitive and exciting enough during the regular season to earn a berth in the playoffs, and then take your chances once you get there. It's been a very long time now since we've been that kind of a team. I hope the knuckleheads currently running things can pull a rabbit outta their you-know-what's and make that happen. Their cumulative track record doesn't generate much hope in that happening, but hey - who knows! Maybe they'll get lucky!

How else do you fix the fact that we're below average at 7 positions again? If we're going to compete next year we can't afford to just sign one guy and we need solid upgrades at many positions. We must spend big money on mid level free agents to compete next year. It'll work this time.

If they are willing to pay, why not keep trying? Not my money.

I'll go with history. You can sniff what comes out of a bull.

So if we somehow traded for Kris Bryant we should expect him to suck because he comes from the same losing organization that Samardzija did? Did LaRoche also come from a "losing" organization? Smells like bulls***.

Aside from this past off-season and maybe Dunn in 2011, when did we pay premium price for a free agent in the last decade? One off-season doesn't make a trend.

Bryant = A's organization. Rookie. Big difference. I'd prefer young players if you get them out of the NL.

 

These are NL veterans they keep wasting money on. They fail. There's a pattern - stop.

 

Not too much has changed since the Williams era - acquiring players from losing organization.

 

Nice try.

White Sox premium price is a different definition. At least the Sox aren't burdened with 10 year contracts.

The sox highlight of the year is not signing him to an extension

So sad, but yet so true.

 

On a personal note, my wife talked me into taking my boys to the Sunday (Sale) game vs. the Twins. I was horrified when I saw the starting lineup. Seriously? Flowers, LaRoche, Micah, Saladinho, Olt, Shuck, Adam and Trayce. What an embarrassment. There are AAA teams that could have shut this crew out. I want my money back!!! I know ... it's September and you play young kids to see what they have, but there should be some clause in the CBA about minimum requirements for fielding a competitive team.

At least you got to see Trayce. I'm praying I do when I go tomorrow. He's been worth the price of admission, but Robin gonna Robin too

What other players did we acquire from losing organizations? We got Dunn and LaRoche from the Nationals. Why are they considered a losing organization? Who are the teams you consider losing organizations anyway? Many of the teams that would fall under that if you looked at the last 20 years are in line to make the playoffs this year. Would Felix Hernandez fall under this umbrella as a player with a "losing mentality"? Or is he different just because Seattle is in the AL?
