  4. People forget Abreu gets these guys acclimated to the city and team and is like a big brothe. Abreu also recruits for us and they love him. Had we not given Abreu this deal, our players would have been upset and probably would have lost respect for the organization.
  5. You sound like the Sox gave Jose an Albert Pujols contract. What if Moncada decides to sign an extension in part because his his pals are going to be on the team with him for a few years ? The Sox want to keep Eloy, Moncada, Robert and Abreu happy for a few years. No worries. This will work out just fine.

    Badler Day - our 2020 Intl Review

    If Colas is the real deal and the Sox decide to pursue him, you'd have to think we're definite frontrunners with our group of Cubans.

    Top 10 SP Prospects (RH)

    I would notch Kopech in at 3 on this list ahead of Whitley. I'm not sure why Whitley is not only higher but a GRADE above Kopech after the year Whitley had. I get Kopech is coming off TJ and he should be lowered due to that. But how did Whitley not fall a little (like Kopech) after his terrible year. I'd much rather have a year kopech had (out for injury) than the one Whitley had (just bad).

    Top 10 SP Prospects (RH)

    I'm not a big fan of Mize.. I think he will be a better Quintana type. Good pitcher but not great. Kopech and Whitley can be great. (Just using the names Jack used). Mize is for sure the safest SP prospect in baseball though.

    Aside from the idea of signing him to that extension, I love the stories I have seen of his work with Abreu's Amigos. Jose seems to be just a geniunely great guy....our generation's Minnie Minoso. Just having him and others like Tim Anderson who give their time to the community makes it even easier to root hard for this squad.

  13. Because there is another angle... That Castellanos may have improved defensively in RF with more playing time there. GRate RF is easier to play than Comerica and Wrigley RF. That he will be cheaper than initially thought with the OF market apparently crumbling. And last but not least, his bat is superior to Mazara’s.

    Agreed.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    Yeah; I had the Bourbon County this year for the first time.. and I cant believe people compare that to KBS and CBS. KBS and CBS are so much better its absurd. Heck, I'd probably rather have a Dragons Milk than Bourbon County.
  17. A few things. The Abreu extension was and remains bad. It’s not like the Sox can’t work around it, but it was completely unnecessary. That said, clearly Jose provides intangibles to the club that the org loves, and they wanted to keep him around and take care of their guy. So long as he doesn’t fall off a cliff and so long as his $50M over the next 3 years doesn’t stop the Sox from adding other impact players as needed, it’s whatever. That remains to be seen, but in year 1 it doesn’t appear it made much of a difference. Nomar Mazara has been just a guy. But he’s incredibly talented, and has battled hand injuries the past 2 seasons. I didn’t love the move at the time, but based on how the lineup looks, I have no issues whatsoever rolling the dice on him for the 2020 season. He’s going to be an above average bat against RHP, and he’s going to be a slightly below average RF. There is a chance things click for him and we have a monster everyone thought he would be 4 years ago. No matter how much Backdoor tries to will Nick Castellanos into existence, it’s just not going to happen. The Sox clearly have their eye on better fits for the long term roster in RF next offseason and they also want to give Mazara a shot in the meantime. It’s time to let it go, bud. Castellanos isn’t even that good and his OF defense is comically bad. We don’t need 2/3 of our OF for the next several seasons to be DHs. Don’t understand why you’ve been so unwieldy to accept that that isn’t a positive for this org.

    I wish those who hate (OK, dislike, didn't want to sign, etc) would actually see him in action at such event. They'd see how special it is to have him in our clubhouse.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    Three absolutely incredible beers. Tripel Karmeliet and La Fin are probably in my top 5. Not a huge fan of goose island beers. However, I had a few of their Next Coast IPAs at a bulls game and it was much better than their typical beers. I was pleasantly surprised. I've been back on an Apex Predator binge lately. Not a fan of most sours, but Apex Predator (technically a farmhouse ale) has the perfect hint of sourness for me. Very quality beer. That said, in a Revolution fanboy through and through. Can never go wrong with Anti-hero. A little crazy is their seasonal Belgian IPA. One of my favorites. We have a beer tasting event during a Christmas party at work. An employee has a brother that is a brewery at Rev. He brought in about 15 different rare beers of theirs, all 10%+. It was incredible.

    I will predict: Robert = 2 Kopech = 21 Vaughn = 26 Madrigal = 28 - our big jumper

    Agreed, all around. There are so many better beers. You may need to spend a few bucks more but it’s worth it. Sours are hugely popular these days. I love Gose’s and Berliner’s, especially in the summer. And you’re right on Cross of Gold. I’m a hop head and tend to be biased. 🤑
  24. Zobrist and a cheap reliever please.

    Steve Stone Hinting At Another Move: Not Puig / Castellanos

    The lineup & rotation are 100% set. The bullpen has at least five locks in Colome, Bummer, Herrera, Cishek, & Fry and two more guys with very high likelihood’s of making the OD roster in Marshall & Cordero. They could add a long-man but it seems pretty apparent they are looking to add bench depth. I do like Mendick, but I wouldn’t be against adding two veteran bench pieces. We are definitely lacking both OF depth and left-side infield depth (especially in the event of an injury). That being said, I only expect one addition and could see it being Yolmer unfortunately.
