    Only a jackass makes World Series plans in May.  With the White Sox as a participant.


    That being said, there remain 3 ways to make the Playoffs.


    The bullpen has given up 14 runs in their last 14 innings.


    There is such a damned long way to go.


    Wait and see.

    Season isn't quite 1/4 over yet, so there is a very long way to go.  But, the 5 game cushion the Sox have built so far in the AL Central is not insignificant.   Sale and Quintana aren't going to keep being quite this dominant and so that 5 game lead will shrink.   But Abreu is still underperforming and given the balance the Sox have, it's not unrealistic to think they can be either in 1st or very close come All Star time.  Then they can find some fixes to the last spot in the rotation and bullpen via trades.

    I have an idea...how about getting dead weight Rollins out of the 2-hole.  I don't mind the guy being on the team and getting playing time, but there's gotta be a better option for such an important spot in the order.  I'd even be open to letting it be a spot for the current hot hand.

    His defense is good, but he should be in the 8 or 9 slot. Maybe Ventura read a book where the shortstop batted second in the order and decided that's where the shortstop should bat.

    Somebody get word to the Fanboys!!!


    I guess the fellows do not hang out and give each other pointers!!!

    Yeah, Rollins "looks like" a # 2 hitter but he isn't.  Dodgers found this out too last year.   Right now Lawrie and his .361 OBP would make a lot more sense than Rollins with his .299 OBP.

    Jackasses aren't limited to Chicago.  Last week listening to the local sports talk, one broadcaster was hoping the Mariners wouldn't have to play the Cubs in the world series this year because he didn't want to have the whole country rooting against the Mariners.

    Today, following a weekend sweep by the Angels, the same broadcast hadn't a word to say about the Mariners.  All Seahawks talk.  The jackass has already given up on his way too premature talk of the Mariners heading to the series.

    And this is a jackass that gets paid for his time on the air.

    That jackass has a producer that picks subjects for them to talk about. He gets paid as well. In defense of these "people" they have to fill a lot of time if they are on daily. You have to talk about a variety of subjects. Think that's easy? It really isn't because you get stuck talking about the same subjects to the same audience and the same dozen of callers. Especially on sports radio.

    Oh, I'm sure there's some monetary reason behind all of this and I can imagine how difficult it can be to fill a 4 hour talk radio show.  Still, the bottom line of this particular story is the guy came off sounding like a jackass.  The only bigger jackass is me who tunes in the next day to see what that jackass is saying.

    Anybody with any sense who is watching a sporting event of any kind knows what they are seeing.


    The goofs in a world of their own delusional creation are the ones that lean on some over the top cheerleading announcer.


    Sports talk radio has gotten to the point with some on air "talent" that you stop listening not because you disagree, but because you know some are just know nothing fools.

    They seem to have the defense down, but Lightning-in-a-Bottle Latos seems gassed, there is no 5th starter, and Rodon is probably a half a pitcher at this point.


    And no matter what kind of team they build, the Sox just can't hit guys who throw junk. Of course, they can't hit 100 mile an hour fireballers either.

    This is yet another example of the Dipshit Win Now Reload total stupidity.


    Bring in over the hill players at garage sale prices and PRETEND along with goofball Fanboys that this will work.


    35 years of this.  One Royal Flush.


    Calling washed up players MENTORS!!

    In their defense, the only "washed up" guy they brought in was Rollins - and everyone knew that but once they got rid of Alexei (bad decision on their part) and didn't have the guts to sign Desmond, he was all that was left. As stated her many times, I said give the job to saladino, it'd be a wash. Don't think you can call Frazier and Lawrie "washed up".  Austin Jackson and the 2 catchers were nothing special at anytime of their career and are probably going to do this year what the back of their baseball card says they will do. They just are what they are - roll players.

    I know that...hell, I remember Tommy Davis, Kenny Boyer, Rocky Colavito, etc etc etc from the 60's. All superstars who came to the Sox when lame or done. Shit, Davis could barely walk b/c of his ankle when he was here.
