    Honestly feels like he thinks there is a minimum weight for the 5 hole hitter. "No, not anderson, he is not fat enough"

    You wrote those dollar amounts as if they are bad when in fact they are very good.

    Why don't we look at the 2018 fWAR leaders and their starts Betts - first 197 games .818 OPS Trout - first 179 games .911 OPS Ramirez - first 180 games a .644 OPS Bregman - first 204 games .818 OPS Lindor - first 99 games.835 OPS Yelich - first 206 games .765 OPS Chapman - first 84 games .785 OPS Machado - first 207 games .744 OPS Rendon - first 98 games ,725 OPS Martinez - first 166 games .705 OPS Arenado - first 133 games .706 OPS Cain - not comparable never a really good hitter Simmons - not comparable never a really good hitter Baez - first 222 games .680 OPS Freeman - first 177 games .784 OPS So basically of the top 13 offensive WAR players only 4 of them started out hitting over .800 OPS

    And with that, you finally earn the ignore. My God, you're a blow hard.

    That’s why he shouldn’t be promoted. Those 2 games are more important than the rest of the body of work.

    You quite honestly waited for his one bad game to say this nonsense, huh? Had it all saved in your phone and you took the opportunity? You sound incredibly stupid. Before today he had 2+ hits in all but like 3 games including a 1.400 OPS but hey he's 0-3 today so Adam Engel should continue to get playing time

    Unlike some here I have no problem with this. Gordon Beckham didn't fail because he was rushed. He wasnt good enough. If you're good enough you'll adjust and survive. Baseball is learning this as well.

    36 year old Ervin Santana, coming off of an ERA of 8.03 with a FIP of 7.94 will wind up being paid around $1,370,000 per start by the White Sox. Can't spend $1 if you only have $0.50.

    I actually enjoy Jerry having his money lit on fire at this point. It's not like he's going to spend it on legit upgrades anyways so fuck it...burn it all.

    The hit tool is fine and is probably one of his strong points. The way FG does the current ratings is to kind of have a base case for the level and then put 5 (or rarely 10) above or below that level. For HS hitters, a 25 current hit means its a plus tool because the base for high level prospects is a 20. If its someone who they have questions on the hit, they will have a current 20 and then a below 50 future. For college players the base is a 30 with most being at most 5 above or below that. When you take all of that into consideration you can better understand their ratings. For example, Vaughn only has a 40 current hit which you would think is low, but its actually the best because its two levels (10 total) above the base of 30. It is also reflected in his higher future rating. On the other hand, Bishop and Abrams both have a 25 current hit, but Abrams hit is considered a strength while Bishop's is considered a weakness. That is because Abrams is above the usual for HS guys while Bishop is below the usual for college guys.

    i don’t think it’s moncada and jimenez that taught us that.

    He’s likely toast because of one bad outing in AA? You really are nothing but doom & gloom bro.

    Red Sox deserve to lose that for taking 5 minutes in between pitches

    He actually should be a hero. White Sox fans like to complain. He's given us many reasons. Rick reminds me of the guys that used to make Dick Vitale's all airport team. Guys who looked good at the airport but couldn't play worth a damn. Rick is a bright guy, talks a good game, makes everything seem to make a lot of sense, and then loses,and loses, and loses. He looks and sounds the part, but the evidence suggests he should be doing something else.

    What’s the rush? The clock is ticking on Eloy, Moncada, and Anderson and the young pitchers. The sooner Robert, Cease, and Madrigal could learn from playing at the highest level the better. It is the same reason Padres promote Tatis at ripe age of 20. Do you really think Moncada would have made a drastic change to his approach if he didn’t fall flat on his face last year? Prospect development isn’t linear and prospects aren’t called up without flaws, get it through your head. (If I do come across as condescending it’s because I think your Robert K posts are becoming troll posts at this point.)

    Calling it right now, he goes on the IL and comes back and immediately goes on a tear. Book it. Dude signed a huge contract, realized his dream and lost his Grandma in a short period of time. He will be back stronger than ever before.

    That was a lot of fun. Obviously the walkoff homer will be one of the best moments of the year but I was just mesmerized by that play in top of the inning. He went so deep into the hole and was so smooth to get the leader runner. I don't want to get ahead of myself because it's just a month of baseball and he's way over his career trends but the growth Anderson has had is pretty incredible. He's becoming so natural at short with the same tremendous range and hose he's always had. He's settled in at the plate and is showing a veteran attack staying with the ball and using the whole field again. You can't just put him away with half-cocked breaking balls anymore. And the strength at the plate...he's a far more powerful hitter this year when his improved approach isn't even conducive to power. He's also cut his K% over 5% from last year's rate which was his career best. He's just under 19%. There are improvements all over the place even if he's obviously just starting the year in a hot streak. Again, it's 21 games for him and only 90 plate appearances and I am not going to jump to say he's an All Star or MVP candidate just yet, but you see the improvements year-over-year if you are watching the games. Even if he returns to some bad habits at the plate there's a great player here. He was never going to be a high OBP guy but I see 30-30 in his future. He's developing into a great defensive shortstop who is one of the best in the league on the base paths and is a power/speed threat at the plate. That's a 4 WAR guy. - championship caliber SS.
