    I did not think Hahn and KW would get fired while JR still owned the team.


  2. - Friendly Bob Adams - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 8:04 am:

    Good news for the Sox, although the guy that hired them will hire the next guy, so there’s that.

    Makes me wonder if Reinsdorf is still in charge or has moved into some sort of emeritus situation…


  3. - Gravitas - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 8:18 am:

    Long overdue front office changes by the White Sox. Fans have been calling for the dismissal of Williams and Hahn for ages.


  4. - Amalia - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 8:21 am:

    twitter had many live podcasts posted about the White Sox. and the Score went with a morning host after the Cubs to talk about the Sox. wild. though sounds like Reinsdorf will make the mistake of hiring from within for the GM. Getz has not done well with the farm system so his hire would be bad.

    At the very least, I am intrigued by the Sox. I just want real baseball people making baseball decisions. That feels like such a small ask.

    ===She was not a police officer then, but rather a 22-year-old single parent struggling with domestic violence-related issues who acted out of desperation. ===

    Good to see we’re still on Team Javert, I guess.


  7. - H-W - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 8:38 am:

    The Landmark article on Rep. Ford and Officer Ramos is disheartening.

    If a young person commits a petty crime, and then leads an honorable life, they deserve not only our forgiveness, but our appreciation. They become a role model for other young people who do stupid stuff.

    Holding a petty theft committed at the age of 22 over the head of a 37 year old person who has lived an honorable life is ironically not petty. It is malicious and contrary to the whole concept of reform. Rather than being able to go out into the schools and streets and tell young people, “I know your struggle, I have been there, and I can tell you there is a better way,” it appears the ILETSB would prefer to not provide role models for troubled youth.

    I have to wonder if the fact that this incident involves a woman, and a person with a Hispanic surname makes it easier to dismiss the officer.

    I also wonder how many police officers came to the law with less than perfect pasts. I have to believe zero.

    Change whatever rules are being used to deny role models of actual reform from serving. Petty theft is not arson, nor attempted murder, nor anything similar. Indeed, in this case it is not even meaningful or relevant to anyone involved in the 15 year old incident. Currently, it is only relevant to petty bureaucrats wishing to make mountains out of molehills over petty rules.

    Kenny and Rick had to go but I really do not think they were the real problem.

    When signing Benintendi to 5 years and $75M is your franchises’ highest free agent signing…you just aren’t interested in doing what it takes to produce a good enough product year in and year out. He runs this team like a small market franchise in Chicago. Its SAD and he needs to sell


  9. - Back to the Future - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 9:26 am:

    Agree 100% with H-W.


  10. - DuPage - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 9:35 am:

    I was unaware of police departments being able to waive so called “basic training”. This should be allowed to be done more widely to help police departments fill open positions. Police departments could do their own screening and on the job training.


  11. - Big Dipper - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 10:07 am:

    Ramos has her career destroyed for shoplifting but Catanzara remains on the force for decades and then becomes the leader of the Chicago FOP despite much worse alleged behavior, including breaking in to a woman’s home: https://twitter.com/JinxPress/status/1691581546988270067


  12. - DuPage - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 12:01 pm:

    The ILETSB certification should be optional, not
    required.


  13. - Candy Dogood - Wednesday, Aug 23, 23 @ 4:59 pm:

    ===Rains said Mapes’ energy level went from “high” before he quit over bullying and harassment claims to “low-to-non-existent” afterward.===

    I guess I have a different understanding of the term quit. Madigan’s statement suggests he was ordered to resign. Perhaps Mapes lies to his wife as poorly as he lies to the feds. Either that or the lying has rubbed off of him.

    ===”At my direction, Tim Mapes has resigned as my Chief of Staff and Clerk of the Illinois House of Representatives.===
