    Top White Sox Prospects by Position: Starting Pitchers

    Flores has been one of my favorite prospects to follow. I would probably have him higher on the list, but I am partial to guys who know how to throw strikes and change speeds. I know strikeouts are everybody's favorite thing these days, but I'll take a guy who has learned how to get guys out all day. I can see him as a back end part of the rotation in 2-3 years.

    White Sox 2018 MVP : Joakim Soria

    I believe it is how many plays he made defensively that were out of the normal "fielding zone". So it's basically showing how many extra plays he was able to make due to his range. I'm no expert, though, so somebody can confirm.

    NL Wild Card game Thread

    Hated the decision to take Freeland out. If a guy is pitching that well and you have the lead, you don’t over-manage and make a move.

    The Hawk Harrelson tribute thread

    Taught me more about the game of baseball than anyone else. It was truly awesome having someone in the booth that wanted the Sox to win as much as I did. Cheers!
  5. What exactly did he say? I’m a big fan of The Wire, but I missed the game, so I’m curious. I’m assuming it had to be something with Omar. Omar comin?

    Are you saying you think his ceiling is David Eckstein?

    Hahn confirmed: No Eloy in '18

    Very true. That'll be pretty interesting if he chooses to discuss it.

    Hahn confirmed: No Eloy in '18

    Even if he signs somewhere else, we will never know if he is holding a grudge. Plenty of players sign elsewhere and have no grudge at all.

    9/1 Games

    What’s the deal with Bush? Hasn’t been in the lineup for a few days. Sorry if it was discussed in another thread.

    8/28 Games

    Every single affiliate (including the Sox) played a one run game yesterday. Three extra inning wins, and three one run losses.

    Tim Anderson leaves game

    Looked like his shin, but I’m not really sure.

    Narvaez - what’s the ceiling here?

    Interesting approach. I've always thought it would be better to focus on the right fielder's ear, but the pitcher's hand does seem to make more sense.

    Sickles mid-season review

    One of the most popular things about Collins that people like to say here is that “nobody outside of the organization seems to think he will stick at catcher.” I guess that is no longer an accurate statement.
  14. Spun his wheels and never got going full speed again.
  15. That replay is exactly how I know it hit him. You could see the ball slightly change directions. No doubt in my mind.
