    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/26307346/a-430m-bargain-why-mike-trout-worth-billion-dollars Trout worth upwards of $1 billion...? Conservatively, $800 million.

  4. You don't hear much about the Windy City Bulls in the media, but the Chicago Bulls' NBA G League affiliate have clinched a playoff spot with a winning record. If Bulls management does not screw things up, it looks like some good talent may be coming to the Bulls the next season or two. https://windycity.gleague.nba.com/ What do you guys think?

    Red Line Radio Hahn Interview

    I have no idea about this post other than that it uses the software well.

    Ooof, Vaughn got a cookie 3-1 fastball and he jammed himself a bit. Managed only to fist it to LF for a flyball out. He immediately screamed FUCK and then slapped himself in the shin when he bent over at 1B to take off his shin guard. He knew he could have MURDERED that ball. He is so balanced at the plate and such a strong swing, it reminds me on Josh Donaldson at the plate. Not sure if he's gotten those comps yet, but that's just what came to my mind when I see him batting.

    I listened or watch almost all of Moncada's AAA/Charlotte starts the first couple of months in 2017. After that white hot April, the strikeouts and disparity in his splits was already quite an obvious concern.

    If you read the fangraphs prospect report on him in 2017 when he got called up you should have been prepared for growing pains. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2017-top-100-prospects/ Note the difference between the PV and FV on his hit and game power tools. That indicates the ensuing growing pains. Don't give up on him too soon.

    Moncada should be the 900+ OPS hitter he was around April 23rd last year in the "optimistic" thread...right?

    I don't understand how you could reasonably think this. He's 23. I mean, you could be right, but I think there are way too many guys coming up and being studly right away that it has warped the majority of baseball fans expectations. There is no way in hell that "he is what he is" already. No way in hell. How much better he gets is up for question but I think he will get significantly better. I don't know if you follow hockey, but before Dylan Strome got traded to the Blackhawks, he was widely considered a massive disappointment. Now he's viewed as a future building block for them. The same type of people who wrote off Strome are the same people who are writing off Moncada. EVERYTHING I read about Moncada when the Sox gave him the call up said it was going to take a season or two for him to figure it out, but when it all clicks it will be spectacular. Patience, young Padowan.

    I don’t think Moncada “completely sucks” but I don’t think he gets much better. Lots of walks, lots of Ks, low slash numbers, the end.

    I kind of want to just simulate this season and see who is panning out. This is a pretty big year for a lot of the farm kids + Yoan/Lopez/Gio/TA/Fulmer. It's going to be a lot of shitty baseball but as long as our "key" young guys are improving the season could still be a success.

    Vaughn due up 3rd this inning. I just hope 1B isn't open when he comes up. EDIT: 1B was open, but the pitcher decided to peg him in the arm instead. To be fair, Vaughn does lean out pretty far and didn't even think about moving his shoulder out of the way. 2 for 2, 1B, HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB

    He's NOT a good looking guy. Good thing we got Kopech. 😉

    Holy moly. This is my guy.
  19. Since Abreu's already on a one year deal, there's absolutely no reason not to keep doing that...year to year, assuming we trade him this mid-season to a playoff contender. Then again, if you were Abreu, at his age now, wouldn't you prefer to play for a playoff-contending team, even if it meant you were platooned? NOTE: All those who argued that Bregman and Jimenez should get what are essentially now similar deals officially are off their rockers. No wonder the Astros are so much better than the Sox.

    Red Line Radio Hahn Interview

    It is what it is. At this point, we all know exactly what Hahn's going to say and how it's going to sound, and it would just piss off the majority of fans anyway. Frankly, it would be more fun speculating about Hoiberg going to Nebraska to replace Miles (Creighton would be interesting, too, although that definitely won't happen this year).

    Right there with you. I'm 32 years old and never thought I would see this day. I feel rotten for it, but fuck this franchise- I let my ticket rep know as much. It's no use cheering for L's either, since the same incompetent jackasses are going to waste draft picks on pure shit.

    FS: White Sox Should Be Pleased With 3rd Pick

    Maybe. We'll see. I think the O's are going to take Witt though.
