  1. At this point, some White Sox fans are like the husbands that b**** about their wives for 3 decades, 24 hours a day.

  2. No, petty is going from thread to thread posting unrelated nonsense and ruining them for no good reason. This and the 8 myths thread are great examples.

  5. Look, this may not sit well with some but I tell it like it is, given that these players are making ungodly amounts of money (we're talking millions here, folks) to play a CHILDREN'S GAME fines aren't gonna mean jackshit to these soft-palmed millennial sissies. Fining Daniel Palka a few grand for turning the wrong way on a fly ball isn't gonna make a dent in his fortnight emote spending account, the ONLY way to get through to this generation of players is a simple, time honored, glorious technique: SPANKINGS. James McCann poorly frames a pitch? Ricky slaps that ass red. Giolito fails to repeat his delivery on back to back pitches? Ricky's bent knee is waiting for him at his locker and it's not for a show of deference, it's for a dang SPANKING. Yolmer dumps a cooler of perfectly potable water over his head like some kind of psychopath (I'm positive he hasn't even read the water bill)? Buddy, you better believe that's a SPANKING.

  6. BaltaPositiveBot is back? it's like the Twilight Zone around here, with all the group thinking that this proposed extension somehow is in the best interest of the White Sox. Stockholm Syndrome? The only plausible explanation is maybe the bot fried or shortcircuited when forced to read 15 names in a single post of mine then then another ten in one of yours?

  7. If we have the money I would definitely sign him very soon. He will bring fan interest for sure and just in case we somehow compete for playoffs....... He would be a big piece of that.

  10. That’s all fine and good. If you want to publicly campaign to block or ignore someone, more power to you, but it’s petty. I think there are quite a few posters who have never blocked anyone. But how about you publish a list of the Top Ten most blocked/ignored posters, surely that will make me want to run away and hide in exile on a Padres’ board, lol. Let’s see these purported stats if you’re going to make an assertion like that (who is “most,” the moderating team?)...it’s only fair when you make a blanket or general statement. How about this, all those who have me on ignore/block, I’d be happy to return the same courtesy,

  12. Are you really expecting that out of a Spring Training game in 2019? If the answer is no, and you are just looking for a reason to complain again, the answer here is clear. I would think at 54 you would have better things to do than to try to be miserable about a game that literally doesn't matter.

  16. Or the back 3-4 of their bullpen. Zimmer, If healthy, is maybe a 1-1.5 fWAR downgrade from Brantley...but certainly has the potential to outproduce him. CarGo, Martin and Zimmer certainly sounds a lot better than what they looked like two months ago. We can even argue that taking Alonso’s deal off their hands partially contributed to this low-risk signing.

  17. Why the heck did Hahn give Jon Jay $4 million guaranteed? Awful. I’d rather have CarGo right now for less than Jay.

  20. If it's guaranteed then of course not, but the guarantee would probably be something close to $30 million - that's still unprecedented but totally reasonable for this player. Frankly, if he wanted $100 million guaranteed, I'll put $100 million guaranteed through 2029 on the table right now too.

  22. Maybe Hector Gomez is getting paid a kickback by the front office for attempting to make the Sox look more generous than the really are in actuality...of course, if it’s all a fake plant, it’s going to really piss off Eloy and his agent.

  23. He could still be called up before the season starts technically without burning an option couldn't he ? Who gets the mystery injury ? Palka with the hammy seems likely.

  24. I am so tired of people ragging on Sheets... If he develops game power he is a starting 1b in the future. He has the power and he just needs to translate it to the game... He is a great hitter who has put in the work on his fielding and won his leagues gold glove.

  25. Got it now. I think the increased offense of Jay and Jimenez will be worth this downgrade. The defense will go down but overall WAR will go up.

  28. https://mobile.twitter.com/whitesox/status/1105993145668517890 Is Jose really going to be the starter at 1st this year? Yonder is the better fielder of the two, and I have to imagine playing him at 1st will bolster his trade value. Abreu is such a butcher out there that he is injuring himself from deflections.... It is time to shift him to DH. It is long past that time, actually.

  29. That element definitely exists in American society, though, whether we want to admit it or not (look no further than the "gay pride" discussion, and the fact that "four-in-ten Americans (42%) said that being gay or lesbian is “just the way some choose to live,” while a similar share (41%) said that “people are born gay or lesbian,” according to the most recent Pew Research Center poll on the issue, conducted in 2013. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/03/06/americans-are-still-divided-on-why-people-are-gay/ As far as anti-Semitism, look no further than the ongoing campaign/character assassination against George Soros, for one. Go back to Charlottesville and the chants. Heck, even Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook actively participated in it by attempting to frame his as the villain leading a global cabal to take over the world. Of course, sophisticated posters (and most Sox fans, for that matter) can make a distinction between a "cheap front office" and someone's ethnicity, but the lines have definitely blurred in recent years. It's the reason we don't have Filibuster anymore at SoxTalk, because everything is about "sides/partisanship," the other side is evil incarnate/the enemy/racists/intolerant or "doesn't love their country/isn't patriotic/socialist/anti-American" or whatever particular label fits that day. If we go through another tease of an off-season in 2019-20 after finishing with a win column number below 60 this year, it's going to get REALLY ugly. Unfortunately, it feels like the worst MAY yet still be to come.

  31. That's not true, God doesn't make people gay, although he can allow some to fight the cross of same sex attraction. That is not something God causes but is the result of original sin. We all fight disordered attractions of some sort, we are human, but giving into these attractions is a sin. So ultimately it's a choice whether or not someone gives into same sex attractions and is gay. It's not like race where one is born into the color of their skin where they have no choice. It can be much more complex since now as we can see homosexuality is normalized by society, and in some instances people fight same sex attractions because they were physically sexually abused, or mentally abused. But homosexuality (giving into homosexuality) and homosexual acts is a sin condemned by the Scriptures.

  32. True. And all people are welcome to the game, and anyone can do bad things at the game, but what I don't agree with is the promotion of "pride night," for all the reasons I described.

  33. Remember anyone that disagrees with this crowd is a bigot, homophobe, etc etc. My point is having a "gay pride" night is showing scandal. If I bring my kids I am going to have to explain to them something that's not appropriate at the ball park, and if kids go with friends or others they can be led astray. There are rainbow flags. In other ball parks there has been kiss cams where two people of the same sex kiss. If we are talking about violence against a group of people why not just have a anti-violence day?

  34. Now this I don't understand. He is taking a lot of abuse for his beliefs and there are a lot of people left in the world who believe those things. Not me I have 2 gay brothers. You ask him to be tolerant yet we cannot be tolerant. He is not hateful nor advocating any violence but the posts attacking him are mocking him and abusive. Just because majority rules here and on this subject doesn't mean the majority has the right to abuse his beliefs no matter how antiquated his thinking appears to be.

  35. Boy the thread title is not kidding with the "enter at your own risk". How did we get into a bashing of Gay Pride day at the ballpark? It is actually a pretty cool tradition all around major league baseball.

  36. Once again just because I dont support "gay pride" doesnt mean I hate anyone or want to hurt anyone. Would you be satisfied with an "adultery pride" night or a "fornication pride" night?

  37. Hey, I love the team too, and if I know that something they are doing is not for the common good for the organization and baseball itself, then I should be able to say something. We can leave it at that. As I said they should have an anti-bullying day, but to promote "gay pride" I think is going to far and showing scandal to alot of people including the young.

  38. The irony is that if you truly believed (or understood) "gospel values", then you'd be 100% in favor of what the Sox are trying to accomplish through a gay pride night.

  40. I respect you and your opinions but it hurts to see our organization, and the one I love so much scandalize not only the adults but especially the young. I will stick around. I still believe in Gospel values, not progressive false ideas. I will leave it there for now.

  41. You are twisting what I am saying to say that I believe in hurting someone that has same sex attraction. No, all people are welcome at the park, but the organization shouldnt push homosexuality by promoting a "pride day." They can have an anti-bullying day to cover all types of bullying.

  42. I am very upset the White Sox will host a "gay pride" day again at their park on July 23rd. This is a kids game and this sort of political ideology should not be at our ballpark where many kids attend. The Sox should not be promoting homosexuality, as many innocent kids that day may become interested in homosexuality because of the White Sox showing scandal and promoting such a thing. They should just stick to an anti-bullying day. I was very close to abandoning this team because of this, but I hope to work for some change from within while still rooting for the Sox.

  43. I do not disagree that Lauri and Lavine aren't #1 option on PO team, I think everyone could see that. But Sexton has been garbage thus far and your reasoning that he'd been a better pick than WCJ because he isn't a modern day big is asinine. Sure a scorer in the mold of Sexton has potential to be an all star, but he'd been a terrible fit next to Lavine regardless, and Sexton has shown jackshit thus far to prove anyone wrong.
