CTL, on whether the Sox NEED to make playoffs
Fri, 10 Aug 2012|
The Chicago Tribune Live crew sits down to discuss whether or not the White Sox season without the playoffs would be a failure - 8/10
Instead of inter being the manager DNA -- are they in the seemed to go against you don't think no chance. -- you know on the huge Ozzie guy. This sideshow had to go up there what are the two biggest train wrecks at all baseball now more problems tomorrow -- the Marlins in the Red Sox right. To -- to do is get testicle managers do not getting in the way of the kindest to correct the -- it's always Raanan is. Look he's learning on the job I'm sure you know but he is just. Very slow steady guys do your job so Bosnia where they'll -- -- is done and keep you don't have bonds figures they'll suck again. Is that we Resnick because the reason why we're -- is the three guys were paying twenty million dollars each are all playing career I got I don't know Adam Dunn I don't all of Adam Dunn is producing like he has. And I'm either really I don't know I didn't hit so clear what Adam Dunn was struggling didn't agree that he was -- that Ozzie was running him out there basically -- -- Heck yeah there's your guy yeah there's your guy no question and I think he's ready Greg Walker is more valuable and we're Ozzie. Maybe the new hitting coach what we need to get and I think he expects all over I yeah I I I agree sold race like. Our pitching staff thinks that you're the pitching coach Don Cooper is valuable he turns bad pitcher isn't a good pitcher yet. In a short term -- you look at the guys that everybody raves about me look at Thorpe number. You -- Philip Humber is back to being what they'll probably the worst pitch I ever for real good Edwin Jackson Edwin Jackson expected being the kind of pitcher that at Edwin Jackson was Jimmy you get a short bounced. But eventually these guys go back to the mean Matt Thornton has come back out people you know I look I I loved uncle Bernie he's a great guy. But I think -- -- You know this. Love that everybody and then the thinking that he is just this you know super genius in turn these guys around. Short term -- he gets guys pitching better than they work but eventually they just go back to where they weren't -- is a perfect example of it. One Don -- defense -- look at all this young pitching yeah. And they're in the playoffs I mean as of now no question suppose they make it well I -- got to hope you are either Gooden pitched fairly well you know close is Greg -- the problem and it'll last and always know where I want it to the World Series mean you know we -- -- I think -- should -- -- of the year but we were playing the kind of baseball Ozzie -- -- play when we won the World Series Kenny had this thing -- I need huge power hitter and if he can give -- what he needed now. You can blame odds are everywhere but Ozzie wants a National League type team things are hot dogs playing in a ballpark in which you can't play I -- I'm saying that's you -- your right someone had to go and I met 2005 he may still hit over 200 home runs so that you know to say that they won. You know. That year by playing actually baseball really isn't true because they still had. All kinds of power and a lot of -- hit a tunnel although I love Ozzie you know like Q yeah I huge fan. But the tweeting on this -- just well yeah it got out of control he needed to go to Florida get reenergize and they needed a break. It is what it is so I -- The Marlins today wall that gap and wins and losses can we say it was successful season with the Hawks and catch phrase it's all good visit the greatest when you hear that. It's impossible not to -- you hear that that's successful.
