It’s going to be a lot more than that if Hahn fails to land Machado...of course, at that point, there will be pretty much nothing left to talk about until Jimenez’s debut.

There you go, by the way, 3 names.

-3 is lowering the mean/median/mode significantly.

 

Do you really consider yourself to be a White Sox fan?

You added in 3 names but you also added in 2 statistical terms that are irrelevant to the post.

That’s only if Hahn takes a back seat to KW.  You throw Jimenez into an outfield of Robert and Harper, now we’re not only taking Goldschmidt, we’re talking Sale/Quintana reunion.  Course not as #1 & #2 because those spots will be filled by Cease/Kopech/Hansen.  

If the Cardinals sign Moustakas too, what do the cubs do?  Shift Bryant to RF, flip Heyward for prospects?

Won’t matter if we get Machado

How is that irrelevant when the previous poster said my range of names listed is between 5.5 and 6.5 per post?

Too many names, too long, didnt read.

At least I end my sentences with a period.  Maybe I should change and start writing like peavy44?

I haven't been able to check the board as much as usual today. Have I missed anything?

I just received an e-mail from board moderators that any post with more than 5 names listed in one conversation will result in a 10 day ban because the attention span of Millennials today is just too short, so there’s that.

Nah he's a fan of the Kansas City Cardinals. White Sox are his third team.

Sure, because every fan of those teams cares so much about the #6 team on the Pro Sports Misery Index that they make over 50,000 posts here and none on a Royals or Cardinals board.

Ban bet.  Find one post that I’ve ever made on one of those team’s boards or retract your insult, lol.

And my life would be SO much easier if I had been born to a family like that...where rooting for the Cardinals was in my blood.  If only my favorite uncle from Dubuque had liked the Cubs instead of the White Sox, I could even have been a Cubs’ yuppie.

In fact referring to your own nickname, I’ve probably read and watched Field of Dreams, Eight Men Out and been more often to the actual field in Dyersville than any poster on this board.   Back when we used to think John Cusack was more a Sox fan and not a poser, we even went to all the Chicago bars he used to frequent because of his connection through the movie.

I've read this post 4 times and laughed harder each time.

Sorry but ban bets are for egos with small penises. 

You can still become a cubs yuppie. China laws allow it. 😛

It reads exactly like those fake "I had my computer watch 4700 hours of Law & Order SVU episodes and this is the script it wrote" tweets lol.

If you really believe these, we could submit pictures to a moderator and let them judge. Loser gets banned for 10 days

I guess some people are easily amused these days.

When the president of the United States talks in the same way to thousands of people, jumping around from subject to subject it’s “unique” and “refreshing.”   For that matter, Ed Farmer could easily outdo Trump on a typical Sox broadcast, or Jason Benetti bringing up Fernando Rodney’s post-closing antics in a random Appalachian State football game where maybe 1/2 of 1% of the viewing audience has even heard of Fernando Rodney in the first place.

Yet I have somehow never managed to make as many grammatical mistakes as he makes in one month as I have made in over a decade.  

 Managed to limit it to 4 names, too.

Hi Dave, few questions:

-Did you run the Chicago marathon in 2017?

-Any idea on timeline of when this Machado signing will wrap up?

- Do you expect your source will get you the Machado signing before its public knowledge? Are you going to be able publicly announce on twitter if you do get some juicy info? or are you going to avoid it since your good friend Rick has said this stuff can mess with White Sox Business?

-Chances of you being the Chicago kicker version of Vince Papale at bears tryouts?

Yes, in record time.  5:25:36.  

No, but I hope soon.  This is driving me crazy.  I want to go for a run right now but don't want to not be by my computer if this drops while I'm on like mile 7 (not to brag)

Maybe.  I'm in a weird spot where I don't want to burn bridges, but it's kinda my "job" to report what I get.  I'll talk to higher ups with the sox about this when appropriate.  I'm not bothering them right now.  I'm letting them hammer this home.  

100%

 

Real talk, can someone please help me with the push notifications?  I turned them off on the site but they're also on my computer and every time someone replies I'm getting a notification

So... someone says ban bets are for small dicks, and you want to make a ban bet over who has the biggest dick? And I imagine that would be beyond the duties of unpaid moderators.

Negligibly, out of 52,000+ posts, but it would still shift slightly from a mathematical standpoint.

If I wanted to read politics, I'd go to a political website. That shit invades enough of our lives; can we have just one place where we can talk about a damn sport and not that crap? Thanks.
