Major League A*Holes: Sox Type Thing

1x
3 | Second Coming of Sosa?
Is a big jump from Double-A to the big league club for top prospect, Lenyn Sosa going to help save the Sox?  |  Umpire Doug Eddings was so bad the Blue Jays hitting coach got himself ejected BEFORE the next game and PitchTrax may have to recalibrate going forward  |  The LaRussaPalooza circus rolls on as Tony La Russa has completely lost any benefit of the doubt  |  Another Box Seat Manager has some bad advice for the front office as Pete takes his home attendance record to 5-1  |  ASKHOLE?! What's wrong with Lucas Giolito?  |  It's not ESPN Sunday Night Baseball's fault they're out-of-town stupid, but their incessant off-field in-game coverage is completely out of control  |   We need a new name for our Twitter poll segment, but most agree a delusional Jerry Reinsdorf values his relationship with TLR over a #WhiteSox championship TWITTER: @SoxTypeThing WEB: https://soxtypething.com/ SHOP: https://assthetics.store/ REVOLUTION BREWING: https://revbrew.com/

2 | From "FIRE TONY" to a Sweep in Detroit
The circus that is LaRussaPalooza started the week with not-so-subtle hints that the fanbase wants Tony La Russa fired but ended with a dominant sweep of the Tigers  |  Lance Lynn gets into it with Joe McEwing while TLR denies everything in typical TLR fashion  |  The Wrath of Hahn curse lives on as the avalanche of injuries continue to bury Rick Hahn alive  |  Tweet Bag: If fans actually got their wish, who would they want to replace La Russa?  |  NBC Sports Chicago censoring the critical inning of the infamous 1-2 Intentional Walk game replay was some Shit We Couldn't Make Up  | Tim Anderson's rehab is off to a nice start while Eloy Jiménez is MIA  |  Maybe Yoan Moncada just needed a little time to settle in?

1 | Tony La Russa: The Most Hated Man in Chicago
Sox Type Thing becomes its own thing at a unique moment in White Sox history  |  LARUSSAPALOOZA takes it up another notch when Tony La Russa makes baseball history with 1-2 intentional, but that's only the tip of his iceberg of incompetence  |  Pete at the Park goes 4-1 as Box Seat Managers have some *interesting* advice for TLR  |  We power rank Steve Stone's broadcast booth partnerships over the last 40 years  |  We answer your questions on the @SoxTypeThing Twitter Bag  |  Eloy Jiménez is NOT injury-prone and has NOT suffered a setback according to Rick Hahn TWITTER: @SoxTypeThing WED: https://majorleagueaholes.com/ SHOP: https://assthetics.store/ REVOLUTION BREWING: https://revbrew.com/

Second Base Solutions
Signing a big-name free agent SS and asking him to move to 2B isn't realistic. Neither is asking the face of the franchise, Tim Anderson to move out of his preferred position. But there are plenty of trade options out there to fill the #WhiteSox gaping hole in the middle of the infield.  For more baseball talk, check out Major League A*Holes on the web, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

Sox Options at 2B & RF
With the #WhiteSox 2022 payroll already at record levels, will Jerry Reinsdorf spend even more on free agents to fill the holes at second base and right field? Or can Rich Hahn find more creative ways to use assets within the organization to address those issues?

No Candy For Christmas
[NOTE: Apologies for Smitty’s shitty audio quality as we had some technical difficulties we were unaware of at the time of recording. We’ll do better next time.] The #WhiteSox failed to make the fanbase happy with any splashy moves before Dec 1 artificial deadline, but Rich Hahn still has plenty of time and options to improve the roster for 2022.

Defense Loses Championships
Rick Hahn needs to fill holes at RF and 2B for the 2022 White Sox, but defensive butchers like Nick Castellanos and Kyle Schwarber shouldn’t be on his list. For more baseball talk, check out Major League A*Holes on the web, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

Sorry Folks, Kimbrel’s NOT Going to the Yankees
As if Bob Nightengale‘s bad tweet announcing the Sox WILL sign and TRADE Craig Kimbrel THIS WINTER wasn’t dumb enough, pundits are now actually suggesting the Yankees would give up Gleyber Torres and/or Aaron Judge for the former closer at the lowest point in his value??
