  1. Anderson, Moncada, Eloy and Grandal. 😁😆🤣 Then sign Judge. 🤣
  2. Gotta protect their POS creep. https://www.creepsheet.com/accused/daryl-boston/
  3. I hate Donaldson, but shaking up the team by getting rid of, as you put it, "the walking soap operas" is just what this team needs. I would rather Donaldson not be involved, however.
  4. Yeah I never liked Eddie either. In fact I disliked him more than Reinsdorf in those early years. They both sucked.
  5. The only UHF station in Chicago at the time was Ch. 26, where you could watch Bullfights and Professional Wrestling!
  6. People are upset because that mistake from 40 years ago cost the White Sox a major portion of the Chicago fan base (as well as some nationally, since WGN was a superstation) and is a mistake from which they have never recovered. That event of 40 years ago was what turned Chicago overwhelmingly into a Cubs town.
  7. It was a dumb move at the time. Nobody wanted to pay for a product that everyone else was offering free. Plus, while WGN was a superstation and had a strong clear vhf signal in the Chicago area, Sportsvision required a special box with a separate antenna installed on your roof just to watch one station that only offered Sox games. It would be like owning a gas station in 1982 and replacing all your pumps with charging stations because in 40 years people will have electric cars. I guess that would be considered "ahead of it's time. "
  8. And with that Reinsdorf made people realize what scum he is. He's been a lousy owner as well. Einhorn & Reinsdorf helped turn Chicago into a Cubs town.
  9. Gotta pick up the option before you can trade him.
  10. Great article. Thanks Lip! “The problem is some of these guys just don’t care, they want to win sure but they already have gotten their money with these contracts before they proved anything. Moncada would strike out and just walk back to the dugout like no big deal, he fouls a ball off and now he can’t play for three days? His contract makes him untradable but he needs to go.” Is there hope? “It could happen, maybe there’s a 5% chance this front office could get it right. But first the front office has to admit they made mistakes. The catcher (Yamani Grandal), third baseman (Moncada) and shortstop (Tim Anderson) need to go. They need to get guys with a higher baseball acumen, the lack of urgency, the way they beat themselves this season was embarrassing. Anderson needs to go because the organization gave him the keys to the car and he drove it off the cliff. And he’s getting up in years (Author’s Note: Anderson will turn 30 this season), get something for him while you can, some talented young players. The organization also needs a major off season from the scouts, they have to find guys they can buy low on with a good upside and hope they produce.” That's what I've been saying for a while.
  11. When it was time to augment the young core with people like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, Hahn came up with John Jay and Yonder Alonso.
