    Wow that’s terrifying how easy this spreads. And now with the riots and many states opening, we’re for sure going to see exponential death across the board. There’s no other possible outcome. Death will grow exponentially since spreading will do the same. Only 2 million people have it.

    2020 Catch-All

    Don't think I've ever seen that before.

    Exactly. Last year, the Sox gave Andrew Vaughn the full slot. Then they gave Thompson $2.1 million in round 2 ($600K over slot). Andrew Dalquist got $2 million (that was like $1.3 million over slot). They paid their selection in rounds 5-10 $10K each to save the money to pay for it. That's not possible this year. In the 2020 draft, these are the bonus amounts. 1st round 11th overall: $4,547,500 2nd Round 47th overall: $1,580,200 3rd Round 83rd overall: $733,100 4th Round 112th overall: $517,400 5th Round 142nd overall: $386,600 Their best would likely be getting their first rounder for $4 million. They can save close to $1 million overall by doing this. This would allow them to spend $2 million in round 2 and over $1 million in round 3 by going 5% over their pool. Full slot will make it tough to accomplish though.

    The issue with Mitchell is the Type 1 diabetes. Even if you think it's a not a huge deal, it limits his value once he's in your organization but many teams wouldn't be interested in trading for him either.

    I wasn't on Mitchell but now I find out he has an 80 GF so I'm starting to like him a ittle more.

    I would love Mitchell as the pick. Take the high ceiling defensive speedster. I am still an advocate for pitching, pitching, pitching but I favor Mitchell over Bailey if we are going hitters first.

    So far only three states have met CDC guidelines for reopening: Illinois, Connecticut, and New York. https://thehill.com/changing-america/well-being/prevention-cures/499915-only-three-states-have-met-the-white-houses Great job by the governors for exhibiting patience in their handling. Proud of my home state and current state. My dad lives in Arizona now, but still handles some legal cases for Illinois that he has to appear in court for, so I'm glad he'll be safer flying than if things were rushed.

    Yep, we saved tons of money by going college senior in every round 5-10 last year. That is quite literally impossible this year.

    We didn't save money last year on Vaughn and still got Dalquist and Thompson,

    That said I hope it's Abel, with Meyer/Detmers as outside shots to fall and grab. If Veen falls I'm pulling a ricky williams draft (*don't care*)

    I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and guess Crochet so they can go college pitcher underslot, then go HS in rounds 2-5.

    So here is my final prediction for the sox: Soderstrom

    They might. But if they think the risk of playing is that high from their view, they wouldnt have played anyway so it really doesnt matter.

    Interesting that most mocks now have the sox taking a college hitter when many speculations where they would go pitcher. But the speculation is that the attractive pitchers (and HS bats) are already gone so a college hitter which is the strength of this draft could be best value. If one of the top pitchers or hs bats falls that could change of course but it seems the sox don't view the remaining pitchers and HS bats at 11 as very attractive.

    Longenhagen mock draft https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2020-mock-draft-mach-one/ He has the sox getting Garrett Mitchell. Mitchell has hit for a very high average in college but not much game power. Longenhagen has noted though that he actually has big power but a swing which doesn't let him get to it in games and with a swing and approach change he could trade some average for power and hit for good game power. The sox don't have a great track record in changing swings but then again they did get more progressive the last years and hired guys like Johansson and lisle (who is gone again but that they tried showed the intention).

    Illinois governor tonight was subject of a report on that station nobody seems to like (FOX News) as the governor who has proven to be one of the most power hungry governors during COVID. Michigan and Cali up there too. The piece did not present him in a positive light. Just wondered how you all would rate his performance during COVID 1 through 10. I know Illinois is losing a lot of population because of taxes; If and I say IF he's perceived as a bad governor, maybe even more will bolt from the city and state. Don't shoot the messenger; just saying what tonight's report was on TV. I'd give the Kansas governor a 3 out of 10.

    You always take the BPA but I think the Sox biggest needs are (in no particular order) athletes, up the middle players (especially catchers), and starting pitching depth.

    You aren't wrong. It's not all about money though. The White Sox literally don't have room for any of these guys to play. Especially with Great Falls being removed next year.

    They won't be able to sign prep guys in rounds 2-5 unless they save money in round 1.
