    Jose Abreu - BAD in high leverage situations

    I read the first post and didnt want to waste my time thinking about how stupid this topic was, but I couldn't help but want to see how a few of you guys would tear into it. Didn't disappoint me.

    The TLR Manager Thread

    I knew there was a reason for my panic when TLR was hired. JR has kneecapped this team...

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    Too many fucking why questions in that half inning. TLR wtf?
  5. Feels like when Maggs and Thomas went out around the same time...fucking hell.
  6. How did some people make it this far in life. Such pessimism and give up attitude. We dont even know what the situation is and there are people calling to sell off assets that wont net much. It's more worth it to keep this team and compete in this shaky division.

    That’s a Chicago Yermins Win!!!!

    Getz is promoted to Ast GM

    You're right, moving between sources fooled my thought process. I think making Crochet a starter after spending time in the pen isn't a huge problem. Maybe he's limited when first starting, but getting him to face mlb batters is the key

    Getz is promoted to Ast GM

    Sale spent 2 years away from his 100 inning year...but went and threw 192 innings after throwing 90+ the 2 years before that total. I'm fine with him building up through the bullpen...180 is asking a lot, but if Sale can do it he can do it

    Getz is promoted to Ast GM

    Chris Sale pitched 100 innings once in his career before becoming a mlb starter...in college. 30 + innings first year up, 70ish innings in year 2 all in bullpen. His first full year as a starter he pitched 192 innings...your argument is null

    Getz is promoted to Ast GM

    Chris Sale started in the pen...this move is fine, and Whitesox-esque.

    STAR WARS Everything

    Where are we sitting if Filoni or Favreau made Episode VIII?

    Indians will be no more

    Yeah, some people have invested so much of their lives in certain beliefs, when truth is presented, they become defensive of those beliefs because they can't be wrong, otherwise it was all a waste. I got out of that way of thinking a long time ago thankfully.
  14. Could it have been a thing where LaRussa was getting canned, because of the DUI, from his advisory role with whatever team he was doing that for recently? And Then Jerry offered him the manager position so he'd have some role in MLB still? IT'S SOOO FUCKING HARD TO RACK MY BRAIN AROUND THIS WHOLE ORDEAL...
  15. Couldn't even make it to Spring Training. What a waste...Why the fuck is this a thing???? 2020 gonna be 2020 I guess...
