    Don Cooper’s Eventual Replacement

    Not sure if it’s something he’d want to do, but I love listening to John Smoltz discuss pitching on MLB network. Something I’ve never said about Coop. I think he is someone that would automatically have the respect from our pitchers just based on accomplishments alone.
  2. If Ian Anderson is who Atlanta is willing to trade I'm all for giving them Colome and Bummer
  3. If the Rangers stay in the race wonder if they’ll be interested. Anyone know the Rangers situation at closer? Cole Winn would be a nice get.

    Nick Madrigal promoted to Birmingham

    Where do you guys think Madrigal’s spot in the lineup will be when he finally makes it to Chicago? I really want Vizquel to lead him off so he can get acclimated to being a true lead off hitter in the bigs.

    3. White Sox – Andrew Vaughn, 1B, Cal In the event Vaughn/Bleday goes first and Witt goes at two, this is Rutschman’s floor, however unlikely that scenario is. The tide has shifted again at this pick and Vaughn now looks to be the favorite with Georgia prep SS C.J. Abrams fading, possibly far. Texas prep 3B Brett Baty is the cut-rate option, but appears to be a long shot. Particularly if they can cut here, the White Sox are looking to float an overpay prep arm to their second pick, but that may be tough sledding. Who is the prep arm they would be interested in?

    Baty over Abrams? Edit: I see your answer above

    What is percentage of being able to make a deal with Houston for Yordan Alvarez before tomorrow’s draft? Then we can eliminate Vaughn from the discussion at #3 for good.
  8. I wish it was Yolmer instead of Garcia, but if we have to sweeten the deal with Colome for something good in return I’m all for it.

    6/2 Games

    Not giving updates on players seems to be the Sox way of doing things. Didn’t hear anything for awhile on Hansen or Puckett last year. Dunning gets surgery first then we hear about if afterward. Kopech felt like he was ahead of schedule in March, but not a word since. Burger hitting in the cages in March, and nothing since.

    Goldschmidt stole 32 bases one year. Are you removing them from your comparison? Why haven’t comps for Vaughn been more like Konerko?
  11. What are realistic expectations for a guy that was traded for Omar Narvaez? It feels like teams would be looking at Colome as a guy they could get for nothing

    Let’s hope this is how Baltimore views it and they pass on Adley.

    March 31st 2019 White Sox vs. Royals

    Just as long as it will take Matt Davidson

    Has anyone been watching Vaughn lately? With him being the best hitter on the team I wonder if he’s swinging at bad pitches because he doesn’t want to take the walks. Is he trying to do too much, or completely getting blown away?

    I found this article about a catcher in the Royals system that they’re high. Wonder if this would make them out on Adley? More to keep an eye on: After a strong first full professional season, there's little doubt that MJ Melendez is the heir apparent to Salvador Perez behind the plate in Kansas City. Melendez possesses good power, finishing 2018 with 19 homers and 73 RBIs, but needs to tighten up his approach to become a more well-rounded hitter. He's also good defensively, throwing out more than 40 percent of would-be basestealers and showing overall strong poise as a backstoprofessional season.

    Hahn on Manny Loss...

    Sounds valid to me. You are the “insider” we’ve all been waiting for!

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    If it’s all guaranteed money I wouldn’t be so down on this FO if that’s what we offer. If Harper gets more than that from someone else, so be it.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I guess stupid money meant here’s our offer that we feel is good enough, and Harper would be stupid for taking it

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Everyone has been shitting on Nightengale and Heyman for their tweets, and it’s accepted. Why is that, and his post are ok?

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    No shit! Everyone’s opinion to him is wrong and he tells them they are. Unless he was at the damn table what his opinion is no more reliable than anybody else’s opinion.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    And with this reported offer by the White Sox the Miami Marlins sign Bryce Harper to a 10 year $326 million contract. The Marlins use the money they got back in the Stanton deal to give it to Harper. Physical still pending, of course.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    If the Sox are serious about free agents next year I feel like they should wait til February to jump in and be the “mystery team.” Being “at the table” in December means you have to wait 2 more months for something to happen because the offer we made wasn’t good enough. Hahn can keep his “at the table” bullshit narrative for himself. Someone in this front office needs to be hired that specializes in getting the deals done.
