Nietzsche is indicting fans and talking heads from the grave, and the dead guy is the only one that makes sense

“In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” Rant: verb-speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way. Everywhere I ingest Major League Baseball information, especially the internet and the MLB Network, I read and hear people crying for Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, and the free... Read more »

Catharsis comes from using one's imagination

Before we get started, I keep reading about how much talent the White Sox have in their farm system. Please remember fellow Sox fans, these are the same talent evaluation principals that traded Fernando Tatis, Jr., the #2 ranked minor league prospect in all of baseball, for James Shields.  I don’t want to hear that...

Please don't cry for Machado and Harper

Online writers and television sports analysts alike have cried for both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. Why aren’t Major League Baseball owners genuflecting at their feet?  Why isn’t Rick Hahn personally delivering crates full of 100 dollar bills via U.S. military jet to Machado?  Why hasn’t Philadelphia Phillies general manager Matt Klentak received clearance from ownership to...

Breaking News! Almost everyone Manny Machado knows has been hired by the White Sox!

Disclaimer:  This article is completely fictitious and simply a manifestation of the frustration of one blogger who thinks Rick Hahn is a blue blood financial analyst disguised as the general manager of the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox have signed 1B/DH Yonder Alonso, Manny Machado’s brother-in-law. The White Sox have signed OF Jon Jay,... Read more »

I think this only affects 19 people, but if the White Sox sign Manny Machado, I am going to stop writing this blog.

Good Evening.  The first spring training game is less than 50 days away (February 23rd against the Dodgers), and the White Sox are no closer to an A.L. Central title than they were when they finished the 2018 season with a 62-100 record.  Tim Anderson is stuck in neutral, Yoan Moncada struck out 13,000 times,... Read more »

New Year's Eve 2018 and no A.L. Central title in sight

I have not had anything to drink.  These are the ramblings of a White Sox fan living a nightmare.  While the rest of White Sox Nation (all 17,091 judging by this year’s attendance; more a township than a nation) suffers from the media driven delusion that the rebuild is an inevitability, I stand angry, bald,...

What is the White Sox core, and is it too early to be building around it?

I titled this blog post because that’s what pseudo-writers do, they title things.  It’s like gift wrapping or a table spoon of sugar in your coffee rather than a teaspoon.  It’s somehow superfluous and necessary at the same time.  The reason I prefaced this article with a rambling explanation for the title is because I...

Trades not made...

Let’s take an inventory. If the 2019 season were to start today, the Sox would be starting a 4th outfielder in left field (Nicky Delmonico), a 4th outfielder in center field (Adam Engel), an oft-injured former top prospect that missed 69 games last year in right field (Avi Garcia), and a back up infielder at third base (Yolmer Sanchez)....

Trades, those made and those not made

Year 3 of the rebuild is upon us.  Is it too early for reflection and assessment?  Of course it isn’t!!!  So let’s get started! The Big Trades: Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox for 2B Yoan Moncada, P Michael Kopech, OF Luis Basabe, P Victor Diaz Jose Quintana to the Chicago Cubs for OF Eloy Jimenez,... Read more »

Why Bryce Harper?

In this White Sox offseason on Thanksgiving Day, I want you to ask why? Why sign Bryce Harper?  Let’s make an easy assumption.  Although there were murmurs of owner collusion last year because some free agents didn’t get paid the way they expected to, Harper has nothing to worry about. Let’s peg him for 10 years...
