    Pathway to the playoffs

    Post by Deplorable Mark on Tue Nov 29, 2016 10:31 am

    THE WHITE SOX NEED TO KEEP SALE AND QUINTANA!!!!!!!!


    THEN THEY NEED TO RIDE THEM!!!!!!


    NO REASON THESE TWO CAN'T START 37 GAMES EACH!!!!!


    STARTERS USED TO GO 300IP.  NO REASON TODAY'S STARTERS, WITH BETTER TRAINING, BETTER DIET, YEAR LONG CONDITIONING PROGRAMS, CAN'T HANDLE LARGER WORKLOADS.


    IF THE SOX CAN WIN 65% OF SALE STARTS AND 60% OF QUINTANA STARTS, THAT 46 WINS.


    IF THE TEAM GOES 500 IN THEIR REMAINING 88 GAMES, THAT 44 MORE WINS


    ACCORDING TO MY MATH, THAT IS 90 WINS WHICH SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR AT LEAST A WILDCARD


    WIN NOW!!!!!!

    They are closer to keeping Sale. Apparently they aren't listening to offers from the Cubs on Chris Sale...if they were to come anyway.

    First, Sale has never started more than 32 games and Quintana never more than 33.  Second, Sox have never won more than 57% of Sale's starts (2014) and never more than 53% of Quintana's (2016).   In fact over the last two years, Sox's combined record in Sale/Quintana starts is barely over .500 (65-62).   This is disgraceful since these two guys have BOTH been in the top 15 of all starters in ERA for the past two years.     Bottom line is that the Sox have pissed away the peak contributions of these two top-shelf pitchers by having an anemic offense that can't get them and the team the wins they deserve. 
    Rather than trying to milk them further,and risk injury which they've both luckily avoided so far, it's time to trade them while their trade value is at the max.  No logic suggests that the Sox have any real chance of being more than a 75-79 win team next year.  Time for the fire sale and rebuild.

    How dumb is that. I don't want them to trade Sale, but if they're listening to offers, why wouldn't you listen to the Cubs.
    Even if you have ZERO plans to ever trade him to the Cubs, you can use their offer (if there is one) to jack up other offers.

    The White Sox may as well be run by some of the jackoff Man-Children of SFOD.


    Murph comes to mind.

    The Sox are consistent.


    Out of the race by July 1.


    Bring in washed up players like Morneau and James Shields to convince dimwits and THEMSELVES that they are in some sort of Wild Card race.


    Nobody goes to games. There is no buzz in the ballpark.


    I help their under water TV ratings by tuning in Hawk for an inning or two just to hear what outlandish nonsense he might say next to "sell the product".

    The White Sox are hapless.
    A joke of an organization.
