  1. I love that his mom was happy and then states something along the line of you better work hard to stay there. Keep the man grounded.
  2. Leury became one of those guys that LaRussa inexplicably fell in love with. Before senility came into question, it used to work itself out.
  3. Hawk was an egomaniac and narcissist. How could a person come back to work for a team after destroying an organization. In the early 80's the depth of baseball knowledge in that organization was absolutely insane. Hawk blew that up and yet JR hired him back. That being said he was a great announcer up until the final few years. I was at a fundraiser where he was last year and he did not seem very healthy or coherent. He was not broadcasting at the end like Vin Scully and his time had come. My guess is he was pushed out by Brooks. JR and Hawk seemed to be pals from way back and now Hawk is pinning his ending on Brooks and it's warping his view of the organization. Hawk and AJ are very tight. If Hawk's beliefs were grounded in rationale thoughts, I am not certain AJ would still as involved with the White Sox. Pretty sure AJ replaces Stone when the time comes. When it comes to the White Sox and JR and KW, there seems to be void at the top similar to the Bears until recently.
  4. This could all be well and good and actually come true but if you were having a legitimate conversation about which staff is better right now, to go into the season with it is the White Sox and it's not a debate. I am not certain any cub pitcher is better than any of the Sox five starters. Could they be by the end of season sure. Stroman And Tallion don't make the Sox current rotation. Tallion may over Clevenger.
  5. Yes. Elvis was signed when we were hearing how awesome Romy was.
  6. Madrigal at 3B is going to be something. The SCORE was great to listen to this morning when they were talking about the cub rotation. I believe the segment was produced by Fathom and Jack Parkman. While it may corm true this year, it is not as of now even a debate. The White Sox have 5 legitimate starters. Neither club has any depth.
  7. This was the mantra under Cooper. If he has three good pitches that he can locate he can be Giolito. Did everyone think he was going to be throwing 100 as a starter. Over time maybe he will find it when he needs it, who knows. He's the #5 starter at this point.
  8. Would love to get his take on LaRussa too bad he wasn't here last year.
  9. Madrigal and Burger are going to be the right side of a tanking teams infield for the next six years.
  10. Cleveland's biggest issue this year will be the fact that they cannot feast on the poor AL central. They seemed to struggle out of the division while the Sox inside the division. Similar to Minnesota. I have zero stats to back this up.
  11. Id agree with you but a majority of the starting team just played in the WBC so I think they will be fine. But let's continue to b**** and moan.
  12. I understand what you are saying and you are correct but that chart means nothing. You go to Ticketmaster and pick a section and a seat and you see the price. If you don't like it pick a different seat in a different section or find a new game that has that seat at a lower price. This is why they can charge a different price for every seat and every game. I'm sure the 1985 version of Soxtalk went insane when the Golden boxes were invented as an increase over box seats. If the consumer does not know by now, the better the game the more expensive it will be.
  13. What is convoluted? You find a game, pick a seat and if you can afford it you go if not you find another game. It's not like you are walking to a ticket window and trying to find a seat. Why should the team not maximize the revenue on the games and seats that are going to generate the most revenue? Then the games and seats that don't generate any revenue are reduced to a price that people can afford. I paid $350 for three seats and parking for opening day. Three days later I can get $5 tickets and park for free.
  14. How many of those guys are outfielders. Hoskins is done for this season.
  15. That sandwich is worth the price of admission.
