    I keep wondering if DBo is going to get any uncomfortable questions about that Slate/Mets article or if the Sox will even have him there.

    MLB cheating scandal

    The truth will eventually come out, but I agree with Joe Posnanski, I'm just struggling to connect the dots on Hinch's role: https://joeposnanski.substack.com/p/hinch-and-hof-part-deux
  3. He called him “a leader of men” ....
  4. I would have had a fit if he was one of their big signings but at this point of the winter, and with what they’ve already done, Pillar makes so damn much sense for this roster.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    and the White Sox ....
  6. What's even worse is when the media does it. Reporters will make some comment about handedness when a guy has reverse splits, or they'll make completely inaccurate statements relative to the Sox payroll, or they'll have no clue when a players' contract runs out. Crap like that. Do your friggin' job. There are Sox bloggers that are significantly better than a lot of media types because they actually do their homework. Hawk also used to make blanket statements like player X "is one of the greatest clutch hitters of all time" and then you go and actually look up his clutch stats and, no, he wan't.
  7. Like all the LH batters that have a .229 BAA in Cishek’s career? (.216 last season)
  8. To not come within 100 yards of the Sox roster

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    Props to Passan as well for giving credit where it's due. There's a whole lot of crusty old baseball guys out there that will only acknowledge info that comes from their cronies.

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    Totally agree. I just think NC/Boras are waiting as long as they can to see if the Cubs free up some cash

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    Unfortunately, I think my edit above of your post is probably closer to the truth.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    You mean the guy that had a higher OPS+ last year than anyone else on the current roster other than Moncada?

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    Even this offseason: sign Grandal, getting Abreu for a 1-yr QO, non-tender Yolmer. It looked like they were starting to behave like an intelligent, winning organization. But that quickly turned into “you paid Abreu HOW MUCH?!?” and now we’ve gotten to “what the hell now?” I’m still holding out some hope because there‘s still some useful FA’s out there, but this whole thing just smells a little like they had no plan beyond Wheeler.

    Matt Lisle speaks out

    Pretty much that the Sox didn't know what to do with him. There's a link there to an article in the Athletic if you're a subscriber.

    Matt Lisle speaks out

    This dovetails with some of the comments that Giolito made on the pitching side. It made it sound like guys like him and Cease are dragging Coop kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
