Depending on the verbiage in this contract, they (CWS) may also be able to get out of it if the need arises.
More than likely.

It appears MLB was conducting an investigation since summer but wasn't making any of it public. It all got past the White Sox either way.

Sounds like a scumbag.

Yeah I'm waiting to make judgement once the investigation happens. I've talked to a local detective years ago about this subject and he told me you wouldn't believe the crap some woman make up months or years after they claimed it happened. Long story short he said the ex kids made because he wouldn't do something then makes up lies to make him look bad. It happens all the time. Anyone can scratch themselves or put bruises on themselves and take a picture and claim so and so did it. Unless you have physical evidence of him hitting her video ect it's all hearsay.
I was literally involved in a domestic situation a month ago (not me, but my housemates).

It really puts in perspective how crazy things can get and how wild these supposed accusations can get.

Nice start to the season on the road. Lot of runners left on base but good to get a win. Tough seeing 79 on the other side of the field, nice that 25 stepped right in and got the game winner. Cease, filthy. Colas first hit, Pedro first win, and a Yaz Homer. Let’s go

I think part of the reason why guys sucked last year was Larussa having no energy in the dogout. It was more enjoyable watching this team play and they were putting the ball in play. Colas is gonna be a stud for us. Vaughn I'm predicting will have 110 RBIS this year especially with Colas batting 9th and Anderson 1st.

The team is good. It was just worst case scenario with every player last year.
I expect to win the central.

I think platooning Romy and Colas in RF is actually going to turn out to be a pretty solid move.

Hopefully Liam can continue making strides in his recovery. It was a good sign the Sox didn’t put him on the 60day DL to start the year.

If it's the same injury prone group that wastes at bats there will be problems. Eloy and Moncada need to not only be healthy but produce while they are. Period. Tim Anderson is going to be vital in terms of his production, first and foremost, along with his leadership.

LaRussa being gone is a major step forward, but they should have done more to address some of their needs in the field.

I agree. If Clevenger can give us even close to what Cueto did last year and Kopech can stay healthy, we’ve got the staff to get it done. The pen still worries me some, but seeing ReyLo close it out throwing GAS last night gave me some hope that he can be a solid addition to the back end of the staff.

My nine holes after work turned into twenty seven holes so I tuned in late. I was expecting it to be around the 5th or 6th inning and it was the top of the ninth.
Pitch clock is pretty awesome already.

Eloy was hitting the ball well in the 2nd of of last season if I remember correctly. He lost weight and if he stays healthy, I think he'll produce. I have no hope for Moncada. Hope he proves me wrong.

He missed all of May and June. You remember correctly because he was actually around. 2021 he showed up around August.

I hope he chooses salad more often than looking at the menu and saying "Ok."

Moncada has proven capable of being a 4-5 WAR player (2019, 2021). He was fucked up in 2020 because he had nasty Covid, but I don't know what his deal was last year. Not like these guys don't have access to very good health care and sports medicine.

The bullpen we have now isn’t good enough to win a few rounds in the playoffs. Gravemen has been trash all spring, Diekman shouldn’t even be on this team!

Eloy is 26 years old and signed through 2024 with club options in 2025-26. I don't know what to expect in a return for him. He's become one of those guys who can't stay healthy and the other clubs all know this.

As frustrating as it is, I can only imagine how he feels, but this is a recurring theme not just with him but with other guys on this 40 man roster. We are now a third season out from 2020/Pandemic. The organization needs to examine what is going on, if anything.

I'm really done with Rick Hahn's gaslighting. I just can't take anything the guy says seriously any longer.

Sadly, he's not going to lose his job any time soon.

To be honest with you I'd shop Eloy for pitching. Reach out to Dogers, San Diego Padres ect and see what kind of package they would offer you for you. Get about 3-4 young arms and then make Burger your DH. I'd also trade Hendricks at this trade deadline get 3-4 prospects and shop Giolito to a contender that might need a more solid number 3 or 4 starter.

I fucking hate this team. Here’s the lineup that will never happen, but should:
SS - TA
CF - Luis
1B - Vaughn
DH - Sheets
3B - Burger
LF - Benintendi
RF - Colas
C - Yaz
2B - Yoan or Lenyn Sosa

Pull the plug on Eloy. Pull the plug on YoYo. The best ability is availability.

Also the bullpen is garbage.

I'm beginning to think Herm practiced the black arts.
This team needs to learn how to play through discomfort and management needs to overhaul the entire training staff.

Dont agree with Moncada at 2b over 3b. He is a natural 3B, and Burger is not as good in my opinion at defense as he is.

Correct.

I don't think anything really matters as long as the fuck fuck factory is being run by Jerry, Kenny and Rick. Absolutely nothing will change.
We need Burger and Sheets in the lineup as hitters every day. The only other option is to keep Yoán at 3rd all 50 games he’s healthy and play Lenyn at 2nd. I’ve had enough of Alberto.

Disagree, Sheets hits .153 against lefties in his career, that is why he rarely plays against them. Burger, yes DH everyday, don't play the field.
