Maybe Andy's Boys Quit

Or maybe the White Sox could have offered Manny Machado a dollar more than the Padres.

Get Manny!

Given all the factors, if the Sox don't land Machado, they simply just don't have the glamour and pizzazz to attract a player of his caliber.

The Season In Verse | Has The Rebuild Burst?

You gotta love Yolmer, he's a delight for the fans. But let's face it, folks, he's more of a utility man.

A Classic Day At The Crosstown Classic

Previously I had not been aware of the inebriating effects of Bud Light. Obviously volume begins to play a role.

Hawk Harrelson Goes Out As Awfully As He Broadcasted

The ultimate homer directs a lovefest as ridiculous and far from the truth as his broadcasts.

He Hits Dingers

We're not talking about a five-tool player here. More like one tool.

Mt. Pleasant's Michael Kopech

His homophobic, racist tweets are not the lone blemish on his ledger. He received a 50-game suspension for a banned stimulant in 2015, and a year later he punched a teammate in spring training, breaking his hand.

Why Kopech Now?

You have to wonder what Rick Hahn's philosophy is in terms of the ripe moment to promote these youngsters. Consistency seems to be absent.

Drama Over

Assuming Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia will still be playing on the South Side on Wednesday as July turns into August, we now see the team that will carry Sox colors for the last two months of the season. Can you feel the excitement?

A strategy Ricky Renteria should consider when it comes to Reynaldo Lopez.

The next two weeks will be among the season's most comforting basically because the Sox won't be playing very often.

No. 1: Be not disappointed if Ricky's Boys do, in fact, Quit, or at the very least get outscored by a bunch of runs.

Some Fans Don't Quit

Was it the "Ricky's Boys Don't Quit" t-shirts? Or the opportunity to see if the Sox could break out of their slump at home where their record was 3-15?

We hear how Ricky's Boys Don't Quit, but even quitters might have been able to eke a few more wins than these guys have at this juncture.

Welcome To The Regression

We've been offered the Kool-Aid by the Sox PR gurus. Like most fans, I very much want to drink the Kool-Aid, but I've never been fond of the lemon-lime that they're offering. I like the red kind. The cherry. Once it's an option, give me a pint.

I've yet to get my arms around the rationale that spending $50 on a ticket to risk frostbite promotes enjoyment. We have the NFL for that.
