    Lopez's curve is a much better pitch than his slider. It looks like he's bringing the cutter/curveball combo back. I don't understand why he went away from that as it worked so well last year.

    LOL. Gimme a break. You pulled some stats out of your butt and I pointed it out. I didn't say it sucked. If you don't want it pointed out, don't be wrong for no reason. Easy.

    You said he's been hitting .375. The time frame you stated produced a record of 11 for 37, which is ,297. The time frame you then amended it to gave a record of 11 for 33. To hit .375, it'd need to be 11 for 29 (which is .379). You were off by four at bats, even on your second attempt. Don't be off by four at bats. I've loved this team since I was six. I will always root for this team. I want this team to be GREAT. The thing is...the management consistently makes this team bad. They've failed for ten years to anything. I wouldn't last ten years at my job if I sucked at it. Why should we give them ANY leeway? To make this franchise good, which is probably the thing I want most on this planet after the health and wealth of myself, my wife, and my kids, I think somebody else should be running the show. Hating Rick Hahn, Kenny Williams, Jerry Reinsdorf, and Rick Renteria does not make me an unsuitable Sox fan.

    I pulled stats "out of my butt?" I was off by ONE at bat. That's some serious skill and my anus must be pretty lucky. Honest to god dude, you're completely miserable. You come onto this forum daily and act foolish by making ridiculous claims and predictions. You clearly can't stand anything that's going on with this organization, so why even bother?

    I wish people would actually be informed before they personally insult others. I'm biased being in the field and knowing these guys but seriously. The primary job of the people you are insulting to to work with them AFTER injuries happen. They work with the strength and conditioning group to help prevent injuries However, they can't prevent them. They may be having issues trying to rehab them as well but if that's the case do your research and put the physicians in there as well as the athletic trainers follow their orders as well.

    "Is Cease going to be call-" "I'm sorry, can I interrupt you for a second? I just wanted to say the rumors are true: I am the worst manager in baseball. Wanted to let everyone know. Thanks" Amazing.

    White Sox are THE place for useless veterans on the position player side.

    Bad pitch to Soler imo but Lopez’s curve has been really good today. We haven’t seen it at all lately and if he is gonna recover from his horrendous start to this year, that curve will be a big reason why

    I understand you can get a W without pitching very well. You can also get a L while being really good. I'll never believe you can be 9-1 with anything short of outstanding pitching. I guess I'm old fashioned. Oh well.

    Jay was always a useful player in the way L. Garcia is useful. Decent all around player and doesn't cost a ton. Good teammate by all accounts. He just doesn't belong getting at-bats instead of Tilson or Cordell or anyone who might have a roll on our contending roster. Some careers just kind of drift away without anyone being at fault.

    According to a story at MLB.com and at the Sox web site, he's been given some time off to "get a mental respite." Which is a polite way of saying he sucks and needs to be benched. Better late than never I suppose by the Sox.

    We need decent arms and some teams have an abundance of outfielders who might look good in right field. We no longer need every deal to be for prospects.

    Wait, people still use ERA to judge a reliever's ability? In 2019? Are we also still using RBI to judge hitters? Or errors to judge fielders?

    After Clinton talking to Nick and the podcast with Garfein I think we've learned some things. They came into the process wanting to select more high schoolers in general to "balance out the system" a bit. Taking the best player in Vaughn at 3 and then following it up with Matthew Thompson was absolutely the predetermined plan. Then Andrew Dalquist fell and they re-evaluated. They found out what it would take to sign Dalquist and they decided to go this route. This also entailed them staying up most of the night and identifying which college seniors to fill out day 2 with. Dalquist and Beard were part of that "on the fly" changing of strategy. Hostetler told us that he didn't see the value in college pitching in rounds 5-7 like he had previously (Flores, McClure, Lambert, etc) so they decided to go high end preps at the top and save later. It's different than what we're used to but it makes sense. I'm pretty sure they'll get Gladney and Glass locked up and the 11th and 12 rounders will definitely sign. That's a nice little infusion of prep talent.
