  1. Looking at his pitching stats and hitting stats I’m guessing that in 1964 he should have been in the running for either CY or overall league MVP
  2. Really good Pete ward interview from twenty years ago over on south side Sox.
  3. Gary peters was a really good hitter and pinch hit from time to time back then if I remember correctly….
  4. I remember him as a third baseman. That was back in the day when the Sox were loaded with pitching and not a lot of hitting
  5. I am predicting a lost year here. February of 2023 is the start of baseball
  6. This is obviously a very touchy subject. No one should be abused especially a woman. I’m guessing the woman was comfortable with rough sex and Bauer took it to another level. And didn’t she have sex with him on multiple occasions. he’s obviously a loose cannon but there is blame on both parties here. I’m guessing that’s why no charges were filed. If this was football the Oakland raiders of old would have traded for him already
  7. You only need 3-4 guys from that list to make an impact and the Sox are in good shape moving forward. Ideally there’s always a pitcher or two ready to come up to the big club.
  8. Burger was a high end hockey player in high school on a perennial power in st louis( CBC) that alone tells you he’s a tough kid and athletic. I saw him last year with the Sox charge a roller down the line, purposely miss tripping on the third base bag and rifle a throw to third base to get the runner. he barrels up the ball and showed he has power all over the field. They either need to play him or trade him for value.
  9. One thing about Kimberly that I remember with his time with the cubs was that he was bad for at least a year before he finally turned it around this year. Hahn obviously missed that or didn’t think it was important. cut the guy during the off-season and beef up the starting staff. You need at least seven starters to compete for an entire season. Having Rodon come up lame completely changed the outlook for this team.
  10. Lopez is pitching with confidence. He’s going right after guys.
  11. Burger was a high end high school hockey player. Those guys are athletes. He’s fine defensively now and will get only better with time. His issue is maybe his size. You don’t see many 6 3’ 235 lbs second baseball anymore so third is really his spot. I think yoan is terrific though I think he’s a little off this year but if yoan moves back to second then burger is in .
  12. I understand resting position players but don’t rest them when your worst pitcher,who is likely going to need runs,is pitching.
  13. The ump missed three strikes on one tb batter alone when crochet was pitching. You fight all game to get in a position to win and then the guy behind the plate starts having a bad game
  14. Keep signing the Cubans and hit on some picks and that’s all you need to keep the train running down the track
  15. I agree. He’s been hurt a lot but he’s looking like he’s ready to go.
  16. Play a couple times a day- it’s a great sport. You can finish nine holes in twenty minutes. Cease actually throws the disc around Sox park.
  17. When he hit the FB at the top of the strike zone for the homer last night that eliminates an area that other teams scouts will try to probe for a weakness. Most guys can’t hit that pitch. Especially the upper cut launch angle guys have no chance
  18. The Sox could probably win 90 games on the mlb level with their Charlotte position players and their mlb staff. If they start losing pitchers they better have all their injured position players back.
  19. Any Sox player over the last twenty years making his debut that goes 0 for can’t hit and should be flipping burgers
  20. No dada should sit for ten days to get healthy so we can see how burger matches up. Not sure what Hahn is waiting for.
  21. Cespedes looks like to Toy Cannon from way back
  22. Berger 3 for 3. Hahn is waiting to call him so he can cool off while in Chicago.
  23. I love opposite field hits
  24. Honestly I would never listen to anything Kasper is doing. Love benetti but kasper hasto be the worst announcer in baseball as everything seems forced by him. And Hahn has never said anything remotely interesting in his life. the podcast I listen to is “locked in the white Sox” with Chris tannehill and herb Lawrence. It’s awesome.
