    Sox @ Royals 7/28, 7:10

    And this team will be no different. You gotta have affluent sportsmen running major sports teams. The White Sox throughout their history just haven"t had that.

    Management / Ownership expect way too much from folks with limited talent. But that's been Reinsdorf"s MO for 40 years. In 2005, he got career years out of mostly cost-effective journeymen ballplayers and managed to get his one and will be only championship.

    Brewers get Escobar

    Me too. Escobar was the perfect fit. After the FTJR fiasco every GM from here to Jupiter will be trying to fleece Hahn who has no business evaluating sports talent.

    Sox @ Royals, 7/26, 7:10, Game Thread

    Escobar and Kimbrel should do it
  5. TLR playing mind games with Kenny-Hahn.

    Adam Frazier to Padres

    The SD owners said they would leave no stone unturned. Oh to be blessed with ownership like that on the Southside..
  7. That pitch Cease threw to Donaldson with first base open was unforgivable. He and half this bullpen would have no business on a playoff roster. If Cease happened to turn into Tell Me A Trevor Story would be fine by me. For comfort, I'm still playing last night's fantastic call of Sheet's walkoff by Len Kasper. It was Brickhouse-Caray-Harrelson-esque.

    Javier Baez - just asking no rumor

    The Cubs were supposed to be the next great dynasty. What happened ? And Cleveland blew that Series whereas the 2005 Sox had one of the best post-season records in history.

    Machado and Harper: Hindsight

    The Sox will need affluent sportsmen in the owner"s suite to build this team into the perennial juggernaut they can be. And get them into the South Loop where Harold Washington wanted to put them in the first place. Reinsdorf is many things A visionary he ain't.

    GT 7/11: SOX @BAL, 12:05

    Gas Can Foster indeed. A miracle that ball didn"t go out. That bullpen has mucho issues.

    I don't trust him either. I see why Billy Beane didn't care about resigning him.
  12. The Sox current standing is a testament to the team, They decided play above the frey and I love them for it. When these guys hit their prime, there will be no TLR and hopefully an affluent group of sportsmen comes along to keep them together.

    Engel back, Eaton DFA

    Never understood the Eaton signing from jump. But it's a Reinsdorf run organization so I guess I'm not supposed to. Everytime I see FTJR jumped 50 ft in the air on send a ball to Jupiter I tell myself he's a lucky guy to have been traded. Reinsdorf would still him cost-contained in AA. The idea of Reinsdorf paying anyone but himself 340 mil is sheer fantasy. I'm waiting for them to trade Lil Bro Tatis for a lot of nothing.
  14. Another MEH game from the supposed ace. The closest to ace quality currently is Lynn. Hopefully, the next ownership group will go out and get a real one.

    Steve Stone / Yoan Moncada's "Lack of Effort and Interest"

    I believe this is the case. The brain fog thing can last a long time along other nagging ailments. I had it a while back. I've been fully vaccinated since but it really does take quite a while to get over it. Kudos to Yo-Yo for being out there and fighting through it !!
