  1. Oooh, also have a designated gate as "the Hate Gate" and it's just a bunch of statues of La Russa like hanging up "La Russa's lounge sign" over the original Loretta's lounge. And like, strewn with covers of Cigar Magazine interviews with Jerry.

    This guy reads so talk doesn’t he
  3. Yeah they are like a suit you rented for a wedding, but then the wedding got canceled and you never got to use it, so now you just have to wear it every day to get your moneys worth anyway even if it is not, like, the BEST thing to do. It's just what has to be done.
  4. Eh no can’t get behind that. An org running well on pitching coaching, trainers and scouts is doable and has been a huge advantage to places like San Fran/MN and most notably MIL. Doesn’t mean it will work with kopech but he’s got the biggest range of outcomes.
  5. I read this 3 times and visually I have no idea what I’m supposed to picture. How close is the hula hoop to the pitchers front? Is this like that da Vinci sketch with those arms and legs everywhere? https://soxmachine.com/2024/02/brian-bannister-white-sox-michael-kopech/ But main thought reading this is glad to see the progression of focus here on command. I thought Katz focus on stuff over all and not worrying about walks as much made sense when the pitchers played in front of a defense so bad any contact would be a hit. Bannister seems to be gently layering in some changes to harnessing this now with our worlds best / cheapest defense. Good luck to ye.
  6. It wouldn’t really be high end real estate as you’d have to either make weird shapes to get people access to windows, or create lots of windowless condos. OR - you could go into a public private partnership to start pulling more residential right next to the loop to at least help support its retail and restaurants as the solutions are figured out.
  7. That is…not why they haven’t built anything.
  8. One of my favorite books of all time. Her other novel Piranesi was just as good.
  9. I normally give a lot of leeway for this stuff because it can just be taste but yeah these are just absolute trash. They absolutely look like tball uniforms.
  10. I don't really understand the point of it all but when we are discussing who are the young players that are supposed to be influenced by this veteran group - it's the pitchers. We are going to have a fresh bullpen and a lot of tryouts. They may not be that young, but in terms of experience, clearly they see changing the culture to a bunch of motivated, bad veterans who can play defense is better than a bunch of unmotivated, bat veterans who were once good and also can't play defense. Both are bad though, really need to emphasize that there is a lot of bad on this roster. Worse than 17 imo.
  11. Well, hello Chicago. Thought it would have been a cool place and I like tailgating for football games, but, hey, let's just make the lake work. And there is no group I hate more (this is an exaggeration) than friends of the park so I will be forced to be absolutely, obnoxiously on the Bears side thru all of this.
  12. going head first to home is by far the best use case for it. They should just enforce the rule to not block the base.
