Hey, Trevor Bauer is a big MAGA guy. Maybe we’ll sign him! Then Curt Schilling for pitching coach!

Kill me now.

TLR pulled the "Do you know who I am" card during his arrest. What a douchebag.

I'm sorry White Sox that the owner decided this dinosaur was the best choice to led your young, hip team.

Welp, I’d love to hear JR defense of this move now. Second DUI people, second one. Meanwhile JR couldn’t get over Hinch and that cheating scandal but is completely fine with someone endangering lives on the roads. I will not spend a dime on tickets or merch until LaRussa is gone. I’ll check box scores and hope to see the headline “LaRussa is fired”

I’m listening to Bob Nightengale on a podcast basically attributing the DUI to Arizona’s tough DUI laws. It’s not a big deal according to him, if you want JRs response, just listen to Bob, his mouth piece.

What a cop-out. I’m pretty sure .09 is a DUI everywhere. Not to mention he got caught because he crashed into something.

Nightengale is a freakin' joke. Most baseball fans don't take that guy serious. For him to try to defend TLR alcohol problem is cringe worthy.

Hate to say it, but people like Larussa, get out of stuff like that if it is a minor deal. Check out Bob Avellini

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/chi-exbear-avellini-gets-18-months-20141119-story.html

I kniw he had at least 3 in Downers Grove that he got out of. I mean they finally got him at 6... but still not an isolated incident, and I feel like TLR had been warned more than once. Mark Grace was the same thing, drunk driving cars that didn’t have the blow machine. I just tend to believe that when these guys get busted, they are habitual, not an off night where they had 3 drinks instead of the usual 2 and random lay get pulled over.

I called the TLR dui as a joke a month ago when the first talk of him being hired sprouted up. Every thing about this is all red flags, there is not one arguable defense on why this is a good idea.

Why is Len Kasper switching from Cubs TV to White Sox radio? I'm skeptical that it was by choice.

Sometimes, what you always wanted becomes more than you care to handle. A step down into a more slower, comfortable lane is what this sounds like here.

Reading between the lines, it seems like there may be an issue for Len working for Marquee, who just issued a suit and tie dress code for on screen personalities that isn’t exactly conducive to comfort in an outdoor broadcast booth in the middle of summer. Kap also liked a tweet that implied politics was at play with both him and Kasper are Marquee.

I'm stoked, but slightly gunshy about the last time the Sox acquired a heralded A's closer. It's irrational, but it feels like recent history.

wow Baseball talk in January - that almost seems normal!

I hope to hear Pitchers and Catchers reporting for Spring Training soon.

gonna be a few dark years on the North Side coming up, kinda want them to trade Bryant to a contrender so he can make his $$$$
I feel bad for Rizzo having to watch it all get torn down and live in the NL Central cellar.


and I can't believe Springer is still unsigned. Cheater or not, that guy is money in the post season when it matters.
If I have to pick one guy at the plate to win a WS game - that dude is my choice.

I would encourage you to not be...Hendriks is insane. 101 MPH and an ERA in the 1's the last 2 years.

He walked 3 batters last year.

3.

If I were a Sox fan I would be jumping around and annoying my neighbors.

Pretty big signing by the Sox. They got their guy. With the pen they have now they should be able to shut down most teams on most nights from the 7th on. If healthy, Bummer, Crochet, Hendricks is a nasty trio.
