    James McCann - catcher of the future ?

    Same, but I don’t see us getting him. If we don’t what would be your plan B ?

    James McCann - catcher of the future ?

    Not saying you are wrong, but what is it that makes you feel this way?

    James McCann - catcher of the future ?

    Is the general consensus his at bats at similar to the first half ? I watch a lot of games and think he might be pressing a bit but still has decent at bats.

    White Sox final win total

    Compensation only matters if we sign someone worth anything in free agency 😂. I love you positivity.
  5. James McCann has a 3.4 WAR this year according to baseball reference, he works hard on game preparation and is loved by the pitching staff according to reports. Can anyone remember the last time we had a catcher with a 2+war not called AJ ? Before I get into why I am creating this thread I want to say one thing. I really like McCann, I don’t know why but I do. From a rebuild perspective he is the one win from our pro scouting so also gives me hope our organisation are not poor talent evaluators. Everything is pro McCann.... except his second half numbers! I’ve posted these stats at the bottom. For those of you who love tradition stats the first numbers are average, OBP and slugging. For those of you who like more advance states he is about 25% below league average at hitting. THe saving grace is a lowish .296 babip (406 was his babip in the first half). This could all simply mean the first half and second half is what he is overall and neither explain fully who he is. A .275 average hitter with some pop and good defence. I’d take that any day of the week. So my questions to you all are. who is the real James McCann the first half, second half(or what I call Detroit McCann) or somewhere between? Is he our catcher of the future? If so would you extend him and for how much ? 222 .275 .403 .679 71 3 4 1 0 0 2 .296 71 75

    Game Thread - 09/12/19 - Royals @ Sox - Gio Day

    I genuinely was irrationally furious about Moncada squaring to bunt ! Never been on the Ricky out train fully until now.

    Jay to the IL, Cordell recalled

    Given his length of time injured would have insurance covered some of his contract ?

    Twins @ Sox 8/29 Berrios vs Cease

    I don’t think our coaching is good enough for allow for that to happen.

    Herrera to DL: Jimmy Cordero Recalled

    Is Jimmy now part of the White Sox future ? I personally think it is still a little early to say but his fastball and change up both look fantastic. If he can maintain control surely he’s a set up man option going forward. Anyone know how long we can control him for ?
  10. How’s he been doing ?
  11. Good T1. Every pitch was on the edges of the zone.

    Steve Stone with a dose of reality for Sox fans

    I’ve enjoyed Stoney engaging with fans more. How is increase fan engagement a bad thing. He’s entitled to his opinion on things, we are all entitled to disagree. people who have done that politely have had some replies, even though he does reply more to points of view he agrees with.... which again he is entitled to do if he wishes.

    The Brewers' Pitching Trap

    Comparing is too soon, but analysing their team, plan and it’s impliction for what we could do is an interesting topic. Id be furious as a Brewers fan, doesn’t mean necessarily i’d end up being right though I guess. for what I mean for us, we need to get better at our free agency signings to match what the Brewers have done. Between that concern and my worry that we’ve not found enough disgarded/underrated diamonds for me is the risk of this rebuild, as the farm and trades (ignoring he who should no be mentioned in SD) have done all that can be done given injuries etc.

    Is Giolito an ace?

    He didn’t pitch as badly as the line score shows. His high fast ball worked, his slider and change up got some swings and misses. That twins line up just don’t miss errant pitches very often.

    Shake-up Needed in Coaching Staff, ASAP

    Those rebuilds didn’t have the Sale, Q and Eaton trades to bring in a prospect haul to start it. Ours shouldn’t take 4-5 years at most IMO
