Sox Scoops 40.018: Season Ticket Sales Boom, Team Budget Increased

By Rick Mariotti Chicago Sports Online The only things selling faster than Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizzas in the Chicagoland area are Black Sox season tickets. Team officials said 9,576 have been sold so far, and they estimate that total will nearly double (to 18,700) by Opening Day. That will be n...

Re: Lets take a look at the Frick League

Nice discussion. In the Heartland, I think you're sleeping on Omaha a bit, and Chicago will be better than you think. Louisville is a player or two away, but assuming Commie Child survives his injury recovery then 2041 will be a Slugger push. Des Moines is going to be a good team by the end of the ...

Sox Scoops 40.017: Barber's Chicago/Huntsville Tenure Ends

Yeah - Huntsville’s home/road splits were fairly breathtaking. That approach definitely worked for awhile, though.

Re: Omaha quietly moves fences out.(40.2)

Aside from individual sluggers putting up huge numbers in hitter parks or individual pitcher's dominating in low-scoring stadiums, I'd love to know examples of teams in the history of the BBA benefiting as a whole by tailoring their offense and/or pitching and/or defense to an extreme ballpark one ...

Re: A Flock Of Bluebirds 2040.3- Nashville Raids Portland's Expansion Haul

Took a quick look at Orozco’s history - that is one impressive list of injuries. Torn rotator cuffs in back to back Aprils, followed by elbow decompression. Poor guy’s pitching arm must be attached with scotch tape at this point!

Re: Change in markets from Huntsville to Chicago?

One addendum - I believe there were some adjustments to fan interest that were supposed to be made as part of the franchise move/PPT award. Either the changes were so minimal that they didn't show up, or perhaps they haven't been yet, either.

Thanks for checking that, too!

Change in markets from Huntsville to Chicago?

Hi Matt: I'm wondering if, in game, the Black Sox have actually moved from Huntsville to Chicago yet? I'm just wondering because the market size is still listed as "astronomical" (which I think was a joke because of Huntsville's NASA ties), and the only change in fan interest over the end of last se...

Re: Sox Scoops 40.014 "Of Mark Simpson and Vinnie's ATM"

Thanks, Alan. He certainly presents a lot of interesting possibilities in building the Sox lineups, and he adds a nice dimension to our infield defense that we didn’t have last year. I think he’ll make a difference for us - at least I hope so!
