    Nick Hostetler Draft History

    We basically need one of Burger, Sheets, & Gonzalez to become an everyday contributor, Johnson to become a high-leverage reliever, and perhaps one of McClure, Henzman, or Battenfield to become a back-end starting option. That would be a pretty decent draft. Anything more than that would be a great draft and that's still possible at this point in time. My biggest issue with the 2017 draft was a complete lack of high school picks and/or high upside players. They seemed to play it safe a bit to help fill out the system with respectable college guys. Regardless, it's still got a chance of working out.

    FS: Have the Sox ever had a prospect like Eloy in AAA?

    Going back to the late 50s the Sox thought they had the next Mickey Mantle in Johnny Callison. He played a little bit in 1959 season but Veeck traded him in the off season with a few more very good prospects who all had very nice ML careers.

    They have the money. They can sign these guys to the deals they want/deserve. In Hahn's words, the money will be there when it's time to spend.

    I’m guilty of buying tickets if this happens. I want to see the both of them.

    Did he actually say that one? Because that would clearly be hyperbole.

    Yes, it really is. 1 damn year makes an enormous difference and will likely be worth upwards of $30M plus if these guys turn out to be the players they project to be. No, the Sox shouldn't do it with all their prospects, but they should do it with the marquee ones, and calling either Kopech or Eloy up this year would be straight idiotic. Thankfully, I am nearly positive the Sox agree. You don't do this type of stuff to excite fans. Again, it would be REALLY FU**ING stupid.

    IMO if three of the guys I listed become ML contributing players, the 2017 draft will be a huge success regardless of what Burger does.

    It is lotto protected. That is a great trade by OKC.

    Those "fringe prospects" could have 3 of the team's rotation and bullpen spots when the Sox are ready to compete.

    You could tell in the Futures Game that Callis loves himself Basabe. He definitely deserves a spot IMO.

    Especially Baltimore...they just started committing to the rebuild like yesterday...

    Nick Hostetler Draft History

    Sheets has been pretty solid outside of the lack of in-game power. If there's one thing that the last few years of baseball have taught me, guys can learn how to improve their launch angle, but you can't teach someone how to have 70 grade power. It's obviously a bit concerning, but no one should be at the point of panic yet. And I will say anytime you lose a top 10 overall pick to injury in their first full year that draft isn't going too hot. If Burger comes back and flashes a plus bat the draft will quickly look fine.

    7/19 Games

    Stephens, Adams and Guerrero are fringe prospects. I thought Zavala was still in Birmingham for a moment and yeah, I know Vieira is there but I don't want to watch an entire game just in case a reliever enters the game.

    Tilson optioned to AAA

    With all those choices how can the Royals and Orioles have a record worse than ours? 🤦‍♂️

    Tilson optioned to AAA

    Is it really wasting a year of service time though? By the time that time comes around for him to be a free agent, shouldn't the Sox already be competitive? Wouldn't you think he would want to stay and sign an extension? Are we going to do this with all of our prospects? 1 damn year isn't going to make a difference. Bring him up and get the fans excited. Give him a taste of the big leagues. Let him play against the likes of Boston, Cleveland, LA and the Cubs. Let him understand how he needs to prepare in the offseason against Major Leaguers vs Minor Leagues. They should do the same shit with Kopech.

    I doubt we'll ever have a "stacked" AAA. When they graduate from AA seems like a matter of time on position side. See TA

    Depends on that 2022 pick protection but seems like okc made out like a bandit on the melo deal. Schroder will be legitimately useful.

    Yankees looking for pitching

    He's not good defensively. No more guys who can't catch the ball.

    Nick Hostetler Draft History

    Luis Gonzalez and Laz Rivera are killing it at A+. Henzman, Battenfield, and Johnson have done well as well, as did Kade McClure before his injury. Burger and Sheets haven't lived up to expectations yet, but that could still turn around.
  23. ChiSox59

    Tilson optioned to AAA

    His ass better not be up here in September, because wasting a year of service time for 30 days on the big league club in a lost season is fu**ing stupid.
  24. Chicago White Sox

    7/19 Games

    Don't forget Hamilton, Bummer, & Vieira. It's really the positional side that is lacking.

    Brad Hand to the Indians

    He's also had two TJ surgies and hasn't exactly been the model of durability. I wouldn't be looking to move him, but I would certainly be open to it.

    Tilson optioned to AAA

    Our outfield in September is going to be nuts...think of all of the options for Ricky to mess around with...Avi, Leury, Delmonico, Eloy (his ass better be up here in September), Palka, Tilson, Engel, LaMarre (I assume), Thompson???...that's 9 potential outfielders!! Avi is the only shoo-in for every day RF, and assuming he is healthy (and doesn't get traded), will play there every day. That only leaves 2 spots, and only Leury, Tilson and Engel can play CF. At least Leury can play the infield...probably going to have to rotate a lot of these guys between LF and DH. September is gonna be nuts I bet.
