    Gordon an absolute asshole? Or just Stupid?

    Post by Harry Caray on Mon Feb 23, 2015 1:05 pm

    Good old Gordon was quoted in yesterday's Tribune referring to the White Sox as THEY and saying he would not have signed back here unless THEY made changes!!


    This asshole was gone for what, a month?  To ride the Angels' bench?


    He seems to forget he was a big part of the Sox sucking over the past 5 seasons!!


    This guy is either the most delusional guy on the planet or just a total asshole.


    WHAT THE FUCK IS HE DOING BACK HERE????


    Jerry's Kid.


    Did this CUNT have any other offers?  Even from Japan???

    Maybe the changes that he wanted are that they need to play him less and bat him only last.  Perhaps he realized how dumb it was for him to be batting second.

    I did.  This asshole was the 8th overall draft selection in the 1st Round and was NON-TENDERED.


    He swings through STRIKES.


    He strikes out almost at a Dunn-DeAza pace.


    This asshole claims he would have gone somewhere else???


    WHERE????


    The idea that he is only back because REINSDORF likes him sure as Hell makes a lot of sense to me.

    The Sox could have signed Everth Cabrera for not much more than they paid for Beckham. Sad

    Was kinda wondering the same thing when he said he "wouldn't have signed back here if it was the same team."   As though he was weighing multiple offers and could cherry pick the team who had proven the most to him with their offseason moves.  When the reality is that were it not for an owner who believes in bringing back former players, Gordo would likely have had to sign for a minor league deal somewhere and be fighting for his life to have made the roster out of spring training.

    So, by saying he wouldn't have signed if it were the same team, he's singling out Dunn and/or Konerko and/or Tank as the big difference.  This light stick with an OPS not even pitchers would envy has the balls to call out others?  He's so friggin bad he couldn't carry the jock of the others he's called out.  Totally delusional and to answer Bobby's question, I think he's just plain stupid, not an asshole.

    Beckham staying out of prison is probably not a "plus" for the White Sox.

    Thank God the Sox have improved for the Great Gordon!!!


    He is 1 for 19 so far this Spring.


    So much for all that EXTRA WORK he said he put in in BP and the cage while he rode the bench for Anaheim!!!


    He can't even hit in SPRING TRAINING!!!!!


    It makes ZERO sense that he is back here. other than he is a favorite of Reinsdorf.

    Many wonderful ballplayers are slow starters ....Willie Mays for instance was 0-22 at the start of a season once...

    But I thought FOR SURE Good Old Gordon would have a BREAKOUT SPRING TRAINING!!!


    The Willie Mays comparison is comforting, though.

    Wouldn't Ryne Sandbrg be a better comparison? Did he start a year 0 for 40 or something?

    BTW, Beckham is being paid for his glove

    How is it not possible for a pitcher NOT to make a mistake when the fearsome Gordon is at bat in Spring Training?????

    Because Gordon Beckham is better than Dave Stegman, that's why

    Given that Dave Stegman is now 61 years old and hasn't played in a major league game in over 30 years, you just may be right.

    Even now, though, it wouldn't be too surprising if old Dave Stegman could hit better than .053 against spring training pitchers.

    Ordinarily, early ST stats are meaningless, except when guys need to prove that they deserve a starting job or even belong on the roster period. Unfortunately, Beckham's salary insures he probably doesn't have to worry about the latter, but his terrible start against the worst pitching (early ST) should hopefully convince Ventura he doesn't deserve the former. Being a good-field, no-hit IFer is a distinction Beckham shares with are literally dozens of guys. The "distinction" that earned him a place on this year's Sox is that he is an ex-Sox, and we know who believes stuff like that should count.
