Congrats to Chris Sale on the WS win. Nice to see him get the last out.

I disagree.  Chris Sale was my favorite White Sox player for a long time but he lost my support when he had his throwback uniform tantrum. I'm disappointed to see that his selfish act which ended up forcing them to trade him resulted in a World Series ring for him.

dunno, kinda thought those throw back unnis were an insult to good taste. Why pick the ugliest unnis from Sox history, I'd love to see those power blue ones from the 60s.

Pretty much how I feel.

There was more to that incident then the uniforms. Obviously there was discord with management, and i for one do not begrudge a player for going against KW. He was always a great competitor, and he's a great player to watch. He's probably hiding some shoulder dmg right now, but came out and struck out 3 batters to close out a WS win.

Agree with MSF and Andy.  The uni incident left me thinking he was a Prima Donna.  Plus, unless they are a special player like maybe a Pete Ward, I hate to see ex-Sox help another team achieve what I wanted them to achieve in Chicago.

It was an interesting World Series in that as I dislike both teams I found myself cheering for whoever was losing a particular game at a particular time

The uniform thing wasn't the only incident with Chris Sale. There was also the time he went to the Royals' locker room after a game looking to get into a fight. Very mature. And the whole incident with LaRoche's kid with Sale defending the kid instead of KW. I am sorry, but KW was 100% correct in that situation and for Sale to publicly side with a child over his BOSS showed what meathead he is. I couldn't care less if Sale wins another 5 World Series' with the Red Sox or any other team.

Not a fan of rednecks, and Sale is one. I liked him as a player however.

Cubs pick up Johnny Field. Hunnie must be about ready to throw up.

I saw them discussing that on SoxTalk. I have my doubts. But if they want to spend the money I am ok with it.

So many just did not follow the rest here. Seems like we bounced around a couple temp sites before settling here. Was good to see ShawnAbs back on a more regular basis. Not sure whatever happened to 4nek8 and others. I suppose the Cub site still is hopping?

I think 4nek has backed off on his baseball affections. I think we lost a lot of the lurkers who were comfortable posting here to Soxtalk.

Spend JR spend, sign them both!

Joe Mauer retires. Class act over his 15 year career. Too bad (although good for Sox) that his game slipped due to concussions (same with Morneau).
