  • Now onto the News, Rumors, and Commentary…

    “In the wake of the whomping the White Sox took from the Astros in the ALDS, most every writer or commentator is talking about what a shelling it was and how bad decisions by the HOFBP were instrumental in the team’s demise. Do they call for the HOFBP to be fired? Of course. Not that there weren’t terrible bullpen decisions during the series, and not that the HOFBP hurling idiotic accusations about the Astros intentionally hitting José Abreu five innings and three appearances after José Altuve was hit — on the seventh pitch of an at-bat, no less — wasn’t just one more display of what a classless, arrogant jerk he is. Do they say absolutely anybody, including a reasonably trained rooster, could have managed the White Sox to the AAAL Central title? Sure.”

    “1906 The White Sox beat the Cubs, winning the World Series four games to two, behind the pitching of Doc White. After the game, owner Charles Comiskey handed a $15,000 check to manager Fielder Jones, to be split among the players. The players viewed the check as a bonus for their efforts. They clinched the title by winning the sixth game, 8-3.”

    “There also were flu-like symptoms besetting Abreu from the final Saturday of the regular season through the first playoff game last Thursday. And I think we had a very good season,” Abreu said. This past season also took its toll on Abreu. He’s going to be with us.” Abreu also expects the young and talented White Sox to grow and learn from the disappointing ending to an outstanding season.”
