    Sox vs. Mariners 3/5 2:05PM

    We're officially at the point of spring training when I start hating spring training. The initial excitement of pitchers and catchers reporting has long worn off, the excitement of the start of actual games has worn off, and now it's just a countdown to April 1st and hoping for no injuries.

    Spring Training thread

    There's a world of difference between a player saying he thinks he's going to have a great career and saying he thinks he's the best player on the team (or "just throw me the damn ball" as T.O. used to say). It sounds like what you were probably saying or implying to your teammates back in the day was a lot closer to the latter than the former.

    They're obviously busting his balls, but I highly doubt Madrigal having a ton of confidence in himself rubs vets the wrong way. He's not showing anyone up with that comment and they all have a ton of confidence (hell, Eloy just said he thinks he's going to win MVP soon). Madrigal rubs you the wrong way, that's all.

    Vera to Sign today per DVS

    Probably 2 or 3 of those guys will be traded over the next couple years.

    Jonathan Lucroy signs minor league deal with White Sox

    Actually, Collins stats in the minors are exactly why people want to see him get a legitimate chance. With his elite walk rate, he always seemed like someone who could OBP around .350 even with a very low batting average, and hit at least an average number of homeruns for a catcher. The problem is his short sample sizes against MLB pitching have not been good and we still haven't gotten an indication that his catching is even at an adequate level for MLB.

    Realistic expectation for Vaughn in 21

    I think people will be SHOCKED at how good Vaughn is from day 1. In another thread I made a bold prediction that Vaughn will be the best overall hitter on the Sox this year. I think they'll start him lowish in the order (around 7) and after a couple weeks people will be complaining he's not hitting 3rd or 4th. The only player likely to have at bats consistently as good as Vaughn is Moncada.

    Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

    This is what I think as well. Cruz will re-sign with the Twins on like a 2/16 type deal, and half of SoxTalk will lose their minds that the Sox didn't beat the offer (despite the fact that the Sox will have accomplished pretty much exactly what they wanted -- forcing the Twins to give him a 2nd year).

    Honestly, those tweets from Gomez and Heyman make me think the Sox aren't that interested, and Cruz' agent is working through those guys to try to generate interest. The chances the Sox offer Cruz a guaranteed 2 years is close to 0.

    Fegan Nuggets: Collins, Sheets, Burdi, Lambert

    Sheets is SLOW. Maybe the drop in weight will help. Without notable improvement in his speed there's no chance he can play the outfield.

    If Cruz is going to wait to sign until the NL DH thing gets sorted out, and La Stella is going to try to get in the neighborhood of what Profar just got, then the Sox would be better off just taking whatever money is left in the budget and getting the best SP they can (my preference right now would be Richards). I think Vaughn will be a good DH, and if he struggles, they can trade for someone at the deadline to be the DH (for probably not much prospect capital). And between Engel, Leury, and Mendick, I think the Sox already have good utility players. In other words, I think Cruz and La Stella are both luxuries, not needs.

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    I disagree. I'd be content with the Sox rolling with Vaughn as the primary DH, Collins as the back up C, and Mendick, Engel, and Leury as the utility guys. The only true need IMO is a back end starter, and there are a lot of options still out there. If the Sox aren't ready to make Collins the back up catcher by now, I don't know why the hell he's still in the organization.

    I'm extremely bullish on Vaughn. Not only do I think he would be a solid DH, but I think he could be the best overall hitter in the Sox lineup this year. How's that for a bold prediction.

    Yep. Regarding Vaughn, it's important to remember that he's a slow, short, right-handed, 1B-only player, and was still a consensus top 3 pick in the draft. Someone like that isn't a consensus top 3 pick if scouts and talent evaluators believe he needs a couple years in the minors to develop. It's really not hyperbole to say that Vaughn's bat was MLB-ready before he left college.
