  1. White Sox undefeated in hypothetical future innings that never happened. Hooray for that omniscience?

  2. 1. How did it work out for Harry? Well after he rejected Jerry Reinsdorf’s offer to announce for his pathetic pay per view scheme which collapsed as an utter failure, Harry made more money, increased his audience by turning a former 50/50 Sox/Cubs town into a 70/30 Cubs/Sox town, and became a national icon. Jerry Reinsdorf, a pariah and architect of a completely dysfunctional mess in two organizations. 2. There are no reports of Yermin carrying a criminal record. You know who is a recidivist criminal, someone no parent should want their child emulating? Your guy Tony. 3. Tony also did not make up steroids, but like the Olympic Games, both have benefited from a steady dose of steroids for decades.“Sportsmanship”

  3. The only good thing to come out of this game was Vaughn getting a shot of confidence taking out Chapman.

  4. Including a picture says all you need about where his head is at. Doesn’t matter that he persevered long after most guys would have given up and is now excelling at the highest level - a truly great story. All that matters is he looks like the bad man from his television programs.

  6. Ironically, a child like that resorts to the posting style you do. Like calling someone "sprinkles." Why do that? Because your logic and reasoning can't do all the talking. You're a troll. Off to ignore list you go. Because unlike you, I don't need someone else's attention. "Sprinkles." Never seen a forum where so many trolls are endowed with moderation responsibilities. Like having arsonists guard gas cans. Ironic that a forum that hates Trump so much functions much like a Trump controlled White House.

  7. Vaughn should be in the minors. Vaughn missed a year of minor league development. Have you ever worked somewhere and had an employee that was improperly trained but had a good ability for the job? Im sure they made mistakes and it took them longer to catch on. Baseball is a business and Vaughn is an under trained employee. He is doing all the right things for the White Sox and his ability to take over LF and perform at an adequate level has been terrific. The bat will catch up.

  8. Does anyone other than me think all these crazy comments and complaints criticizing LaRussa and the gloom and doom panic fueled comments are just getting ridiculous?

  9. It was obviously to anyone (other than JR) that he lost the team when he did that. He needs to go. It was awful when they brought him in and it is somehow 10000000 times worse than any of us could have ever imagined. Only a complete fucking idiot would take the wind out the sails of his own team they way he did. It shows on the field and it's only going to get worse.

  10. Hey how bout that. You don't need a bunt to move the runner over. How about letting your players STEAL! Novel concept.

  12. Huh. Vaughn was the only option there. Even benetti knew it before the inning. He had passed over Vaughn countless times in that spot this year. At least he finally learned his lesson. Wonder if we could have won a couple more games now if he went Vaughn over leury/Hamilton earlier

  13. It's clear as day that the AL East is big boy baseball. The Sox would be a 500 team if they had to rumble in that division.

  14. Seems like a lot of contradictory thinking around here, almost like buyer's remorse. "Be positive! We have arguably the best team is baseball!" Then it shifts to: "Be positive! We can still EASILY win this division! Just keep beating up on shitty AL Central teams! Look at our run differential!" Weird. Almost like a total forfeit of the prior model of thinking. Sorry, I'm not happy just aiming for a Division win when I know our division SUCKS.

  19. Again, today's culture: blame and make fun of of the guy getting trolled rather than the troll. There are some serious fucking man-children on this forum. Sucks to have to wade through them to get to the gold of this site but that is what I get for trying to make sense.

  20. If you were actually attempting to make a reasonable argument and actually paying attention to my posts instead of just trying to earn useless cool points for your stupid reaction emojies on the forum you would know it's a lot more than just that because I've explained it up and down the line... "buddy." Or champ. Or guy. Or pal. Or whatever stupid childish flair you want to put on the end of your childish comments. I always attempt to reason with people but at this point I think I've lost my patience and am just going to start putting more of the trolls on ignore because some people just want to be fucking kids and fish for emojies rather than have a sensible fucking discussion because of their fragile fucking egos and insecurity. I grow tired of people who not only don't listen at all after endless repetition but DON'T ACTUALLY WANT TO. If I am going to be the only one to admit when I make a mistake and then get shredded for it by people who are actually going to try to act like their shit never stinks then frankly it's a waste of my time even trying and really, those people can fuck off because they are just children looking for attention and I'm not giving it to them anymore. These people are gonna bullshit everyone and claim they can't stand certain posters but still reply to them because they want attention. I don't so I'll gladly say fuck you to such people (like yourself) and put them on ignore and from now on focus on having discussions with people who aren't immature douchebags. Fuck it. Since I'm looking for rational discussion and not attention like childish dickheads like you, I won't have any problem actually putting people like yourself on ignore. I actually back up what I say. /rant. "Buddy!"

  21. I guess the idea that an example simply reminding people that anything can happen can register in people's minds without having to rack their brains with overanalysis and intellectual dishonesty and then become childish trolls is a pipe dream. 🤷‍♂ Better to play dumb and argue semantics in order to hold stupid grudges rather than just say, "I understand your point." Holy fuck, that is just SO hard to do! I mean, these people can't even do it after it has been explained. Childish garbage. The amount of people saying stupid shit on this site and then having a coronary over a post making an OBVIOUS point because they disagree with the way it was made is staggering. But in all honesty, that's because said people don't like me so they will be aggressive and insulting out of personal bias and in their head they are justified. Some of us like to at least attempt to be adults. ️

  22. You really can't seem to figure it out, which while not at all surprising, I'll try to make it as clear as possible for a small-minded individual such as your self. No extra charge. This is where things began, you stated an incorrect fact. You formed your opinion based on incorrect information. NO WHERE in that post did you mention you may be wrong. So I didn't call you out AFTER you said you may be wrong, I called you out BEFORE that, when you made this false claim. Get your facts straight. I told you they split with the Red Sox, which would make your previous claim of "only tested for the first time against a good team and failed miserably." This is where you first claimed "perhaps" you were wrong, which is also somewhat odd seeing the time it took you to even reply to my original post, you could have very easily looked up the Red Sox had won nine straight at that point, so there is really no "perhaps" about it. This is just another in a long line of shit posts from you that you just can't get over. You've shown time after time you don't know baseball, you're an incredibly negative person, and I genuinely don't like you. I enjoy when you continue to make an ass out of yourself, and I will continue to call it out when it happens and I'm around to see it. It's really pretty simple. So you can feel bad for me, or sorry for me, or whatever feeling you want to include. Go nuts, sprinkles. I'll be here, laughing at your shit posts all season long.

  23. The offense was garbage and the bullpen was bad, but Tony definitely played a large part in Friday’s loss at a minimum.

  24. I don’t want to go down the whole unwritten rules rabbit hole again because we all beat it to death, but I think a lot of the discussion here came from a misunderstanding of what people were upset over, and it sort of relates to what we are discussing here. Yermin “ignoring” a sign from the coaching staff isn’t something 98% of fans here are going to agree with. That’s not good when a player does that. Again, I think almost everyone here believes if a player ignores a sign, that should be fixed because you can’t have that happening on a regular basis. If it’s a punishment, so be it. The issue most had is WHY LaRussa gave him the take sign, and then how he handled the “controversy” after. 1. He called for Yermin to take on 3-0 because of “sportsmanship” and “respecting the game of baseball.” That’s a load of shit to a lot of people, myself included. Still doesn’t make Yermin ignoring the sign Ok, but that’s not the type of manager I want coaching my team. Not when in Spring Training both the players AND Front Office were talking about having more killer instinct, wanting to step on people’s necks. 2. It came to light because LaRussa awoke from his slumber on the bench and was visibility animated maybe for the first time this season when Yermin was rounding the bases. When the media asked LaRussa about his little “outburst,” the Sox manager had no issue calling his rookie clueless and went out of his way to apologize to a team this fan base absolutely hates. Apologized for hitting a home run. I don’t believe this weekend had anything to do with what happened in Minnesota. I think the Yankees are playing really good ball and the Sox have been playing a bit over their heads without two of their best players in the lineup. There will be better stretches than this, and there will 100% be worse.

  25. again missing the point. Hendriks should have started the 9th. You know Closers can pitch in non save situations right? especially with randomness of extra inning rule with runner on 2nd. You still had crochet who could pitch 10th if need be. Every closer will tell you they liked coming in clean innings. I would have had no problem going with hendriks in 9th and if he blows it thats on Liam not on TLR.

  26. Throwing a strike and getting out of a bases loaded, 1 out jam in the 9th are two different things. Very few people are defending the performance of Hendricks today. Everyone agrees the dude needs to throw strikes in that situation. A walk in simply unnaccetpable. We’re talking about the bigger picture here.

  27. When you play logic police around here, get expect to get called out when you don’t have easily obtainable information correct. Anything else? Or do you want to keep going?

  28. Ricky Renteria 5-4 the Bronx. Tony La Russa 0-3. Guess the Sox will have to wait a few years and hope Tony is gone before the “multi championship” window closes. As long as Tony is happy, that is all we should be concerned with.

  29. It does when you bases your entire premise around this statement: Sox only tested for the first time against a good team and failed miserably. Swept. There was no “maybe I’m wrong” in that post, only after I called you out for being clueless. Be better.

  40. Agree 100%. The needle has now moved to just compete for a division with a team that has the lowest payroll in baseball and consistently trades away all star level players. I thought the goal of the rebuild was to finally be a franchise that could swim in the deep end with the big boys?

  41. At this point, may as well try it. He’ll be back. I’m in full support of finding a way to get him off mlb roster for 3 weeks at some point. He’s not hitting at all right now, so seems like a good time.

  47. Yeah, it’s a character flaw that apparent. You can age and still adapt to the times. I was hoping for senior citizen Bruce Bochy because I respect his knowledge and experience, but also his ability to keep up with the world around him.

  48. Luis Robert was named the 7th most irreplaceable player in MLB based on his proJected fWAR, and the Grand Canyon sized gap between Luis and his pathetic replacements. Not sure how you can argue Leury Garcia or Billy Hamilton are not 0 WAR players. The gap is not as large with Eloy, since he is the worst defensive LF in MLB, so outside of perhaps Jake Lamb, you get a LF defensive upgrade. Also, the drop off is not as wide in offense with Vaughn as the drop off in CF.
