    Remember when people didn't think Giolito would be a good offer?

    And that's a HR powered White Sox Winner !!!!

    Even Adam "Launch" Engel had two more hits. Dude has raised his OPS 77 points in the last 5 days. He even has an OPS over .700 for May.

    What were the offers for Machado last winter?

    Good win but just when you think TA has put his concentration problems behind him he pulls a today. That said, keep hitting dude.

    4 exclamation points for the 4 HR's. Abreu continues his torrid hitting with 2 doubles and a HR. He went 4 for 4 with a walk and is now hitting .319 . Davidson better come back soon or Timmy may catch him in HR's . He hit 2 more to continue his recent power surge. Palkamania is alive and well as Daniel hit his 4th and against a lefty .

    Come to think of it, HoT FiRe would be a more fitting nickname for Dylan Covey than it was Dayan Viciedo- especially if he is throwing 95 mph gas with wicked movement.

    Anybody know much about this guy? http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=614179#/career/R/pitching/2018/A Stats in A+ and AA as a 23 year old this year. 36 so, 23.1 ip, 13.9 so/ip, 7 bb, .77 whip. He has 23.1 ip in 15 appearances, so he regularly goes more than 1 inning. He is age appropriate for his level. The guy has so simply put up awesome numbers. Did the sox find a great relief prospect?

    Real talk: The Sox had zero issue trading Sale, Eaton and Q. Most of us didn’t know if they would have the stones to actually make the move, and not only did they do it, they traded Q to th Cubs. Additionally, seemingly all of us were happy with the returns on all three players. The rumors were strong on both Abreu and Garcia last offseason, but we saw 1B/OF market dry up. Clearly, the Sox didn’t see the value in moving either. You can be in the camp of trading Abreu, as I’ve said before, I can see the argument. What I don’t agree with is trading him just to trade him because you don’t think he’ll be in his prime during the Sox “window”. Does Robert sign with the Sox if Abreu wasn’t on this team? I don’t know that answer, but neither do you. I don’t know what he’s like in the locker room, but I know what I’ve read. I know I’ve seen him at children’s hospitals multiple times, representing the Sox with class. And most importantly, I’ve seen him be an All-Star level, middle of the order hitter for the Sox since the moment he got to Chicago. Sorry, there is more that goes into it than just “He’s going to be old and expensive when the window opens, trade him for whatever.” If you think it’s that simple, you don’t have a firm grasp on the reality of sports.

    3 errors for 4 ribeyes. Thumb injury a problem. I hope Sal wasn't mad after the homers.

    2018 MLB Draft

    Trevor Larnach is in first round consideration, Cadyn Grenier is likely to go in the first three rounds, and Adley Rutschman is one of the top prospects for 2019. Why would that be concerning?

    I think the Sox should be past the sell-off stage of this rebuild. Not that you won't occasionally do it with certain players in certain situations. But a guy who is a mentor, a leader, the best player by a mile, and shows no signs of slowing down - no you don't even consider moving him.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    You are quite literally stuck in the present. No sense of the future, and apparently have completely forgotten the past as well.
  17. Thank you for posting this player profile. I am easily impressed by these prospect videos so I would not be of much value in the Sox war room. I hope Kellenic gets a good look by the Sox. This kid has some Mickey Mantle in his swing. He must have extremely strong forearms and wrists to generate that kind of exit velocity.

    Just got back from Solo. Really enjoyed it, thought the casting of both Solo and Lando was really solid. Both worked hard to get mannerisms and the like down of Ford and Williams respectively.

    Why? What of his skillset is going to be the issue? You can look around baseball and see similar styles of hitters who age into their middle to late 30's just fine.

    I agree with you 100%. The front office could have easily added some players during this rebuild.

    Yoan is a big boy. He also isn't the GM. This is a business and he would get over it. Hell, I'm sure Jose would be happy to go to a contender while building his free agency value by slugging the hell out of the ball in Colorado. He would talk with the young guys in the clubhouse and let them know it's for the better. The dude will have a job with the Sox when he retires.
  22. I would think drafting high school kids is riskier than ever in this day and age. But if he's a great hitter, I guess Sox will take him.
  23. Charlotte is showing Smith as being active on the roster with Austin now on the 7-day D.L. which is really weird considering Austin played today day. Must be a mistake, but I wonder is he is available.

    I'm glad you praise him in your post. I appreciate that. I get frustrated by the age thing. I think he has five good years left in him if his age has not been doctored and that takes us through the WS title years.

    No I know, I guess I just don’t know where it goes from here I guess.

    As ridiculously horrible as the Sox are they still are only 8 games back. This is what irritates me. We could be doing the rebuild thing and actually still be winning the division. Granted we've had some injury problems, but if the front office didn't sit on its hands all winter, it could have acquired some arms and a bat or two -- guys that wouldn't be blocking anybody. All it would have cost is a few bucks. The only harming of the rebuild in that scenario would be getting a draft pick of 10 or so instead of one or two, big deal. Eight games back with one of the worst teams in modern Sox history, embarrassing. I wish the commish would fine the teams that are tanking. If you watch our games or highlights of our games, it's clear the fans who do go to the Cell want to win. They are actively rooting for W's. Eight out! LOL.

    Trump is closer to Joe the Plumber in mentality... Fwiw, Cuomo’s dad one of the four best Dem orators since JFK, along w Jesse Jackson, Clinton and Obama.
