  1. We spoke to Jared Kelley about his experience getting drafted by the White Sox and how he feels now that he's a professional. Thanks for listening.
  2. Our Dan Santaromita featured the comp between Chris Sale and Garrett Crochet. Great breakdown of what the Sox have in the left-hander.
  3. The White Sox selected hard-throwing lefty Garrett Crochet in the first round. The soon-to-be 21-year-old spoke to the media, as did scouting director Mike Shirley. I wrote about the pick here.
  4. I detailed the value of Mt. Carmel prep prospect Ed Howard. I personally hope the White Sox take him at pick No. 11.
  5. White Sox director of amateur scouting Mike Shirley spoke in a conference call on Tuesday and shared a lot of valuable insight on the organization's strategy and evaluation process of a unique Amateur Draft.
  6. Our Dan Santaromita details the White Sox decision to release 25 minor league players, while also explaining its significance, as an ominous future looms for that level of the sport.

  10. Tons of insight from the lead prospect analyst over at FanGraphs. I sure learned a lot about the value of advanced analytics in amateur scouting, what the White Sox have in Norge Vera, as well as a practical solution to the 2020 MiLB season.

  13. From the On Tap Sports Net, Brad Squires, aka Buzz, joined us to talk White Sox. This is a pretty fun conversation, I’d say.
  14. Ed Farmer meant a lot to me, as I'm sure he did to you. I did my best to honor him after he impacted my life without even knowing it. Thank you for reading.
  15. James gets you caught up on the latest roster moves made by the White Sox. Amado Nunez is a player who may jump out to you.
