    I don't see how pitch framing works?

    I think this makes more sense than anything and helps if the pitcher and catcher are on the same page. I also think this will all be a moot point in a yr. or 2 when they bring in the electronic eyes.

    Offseason Moves - Grade em'

    I really like both McCann and Collins but getting Grandal was nice. I'm not a big fan of DH only guys but EE was cheap enough and will be great for a yr. The thing with Grandal an EE is it pushes Collins out but I still can't argue signing both players. Collins will have to wait and earn his place and with the 26 man roster he can watch and learn from 2 pros. I like Abreu a bunch but still think they paid him to much but like Orlando said it sends the young guys a nice message. I wasn't real fond of Mazara but there weren't many choices and he didn't cost us much. He may still turn out to be a really good player for us. I somehow knew we'd end up with Keuchel from the start and think he'll be just fine. Gio is a good cheap starter that'll help us a bunch till we get Kope back an then some. I think relief pitchers are about the hardest to predict but Cishek has a pretty good track record and can help us if he stays on track with his past performances. Our everyday lineup looks killer but pitching might be our weak spot and then again we have 3 or 4 pitchers who have great upside and could breakout and be really good. We got some veteran players that should help our young stars a lot. Overall I'd grade the off season a B+ and I'm ready for some playoff baseball in 2020.
  3. Ok thanks I wasn't aware we could carry him or a few of the others to spring training before having to do something with them.
  4. i forgot about him but yea, we seem to have quite a few guys we'll need to make decisions on.
  5. Yes, part of my point. I don't believe he'd pass through waivers being young and a first round pick and not sure if he's worth much if anything in trade. Do we just let him go or give him one last shot, which would mean one less roster spot.

    Thanks for this
  7. Fulmer? Not sure what they'll do with him

    Steve Stone stays in White Sox booth

    Love Stone, I'm very happy he's sticking around and I'd love some more of Walton

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    Agreed, especially Collins. What I like most about McCann is his game calling skills an management.

    Would you extend Nick Madrigal? For how much?

    I don't think I'd extend Madrigal just yet but would have little worry if we did extend him. I think he's going to be a very good player and like everything about him, but I'd wait a yr. just to be sure and I don't believe it would cost us much more to do so. I'd be much more interested in extending Moncada before he gets really expensive. I believe Madrigal would get a contract similar to Anderson's.
  11. I agree Pitching and Defense are what we need. The lineup sure looks exciting

    Update: Pomeranz to Padres

    I like him a lot out of the pen and believe he can start a few games for us as well
  13. No I wouldn't trade anyone for Betts, I'd wait till next yr an sign him if I really wanted him. I might reconsider at the trade deadline if we looked like we would win the division but still wouldn't give up much to get him.

    What about Collins?

    It seems to me they had time play him the last month or so of the season but didn't. It doesn't seem the Sox are very high on him behind the plate. I really like his bat and had high hopes for him but if we sign Grandal he won't get much time catching and I'd hate to see him DH'ing all the time, I'd rather trade him. I honestly think his offense will be every bit as good as Grandal's an only get better. Maybe the 3 catcher thing will work out because I'd hate to lose him but if trading him gives us someone we really need an like then.... I'm not big on Grandal because I still have hope for Collins. I'm also not a scout so
