    Draft Pick

    With Grandal: Castellanos>Puig>Calhoun>Dickerson Without Grandal: (Hopefully because we spent all the money on Cole or Stras and we just need a one year guy in RF) Puig>Calhoun>Dickerson If I could have negative interest in Ozuna I would. Ozuna is every White Sox free agent signing of the Kenny William's era. One good year a couple years ago, diminishing value ever since, NOT a RF. Prefer: Sign Cole or Stras, sign Grandal, trade for Joc Pederson, add a back end starter and a couple of bullpen pieces. Easy Peasy.

    All the talk about speeding up the game, yet how often does anyone mention the amount of commercial breaks? Is it just me or do the commercial breaks seem longer between innings in a baseball game than between quarters in a football game?

    White Sox Wednesday - 17° in Chicago. 66° in Miami. I'm still jumping on a plane for a quarter billion dollars if I'm Manny. Leave the wife on the beach....

    My favorite move as well, but getting Homer Bailey off the books was a close second.

    Manny signs with the Sox on February 18th. I think this whole offseason is just like with Martinez last year. Harper to the Phillies on February 19th for $5 million more than whatever number Machado signs at.

    After all the quotes this weekend from ownership/ front offices of the Dodgers, Astros, Tigers, etc about the slow offseason, here's an interesting proposed solution to fixing the CBA https://baseballanalyzed.com/2019/01/23/how-to-fix-the-cba-and-create-a-fair-environment-for-players-and-teams/

    It might be even less than Pederson. Without Manny, it doesn't make a ton of sense.

    This should give us our answer. Which is most likely? If Hahn's there, he A. Is the source of the rumors and did it to increase the Soxfest Surprise. B. Was the source of the rumors that pissed Manny's Superagent off last week and the Sox have been out of the running since then. Ifs Hahn's not there, he C. Is on the phone screaming at Manny's Superagent for leaking the San Diego rumor right before Soxfest D. Is on the phone begging to sign Manny for a record contract.
  11. I think we all tend to think that based on his lack of success/development, but do the White Sox? He hasn't shown thus far that he can perform up to anybody's expectations in either role, and I think the Sox would prefer to see him succeed as a starter if given a choice. Unless something clicked this offseason, I think you're right and he is done starting.
  12. Kinda depends on your definition of "turn it around". Just about all the projections show Rodon as the only White Sox pitcher expected to be worth 1 WAR or above. I would say it's hard to NOT expect at least 1 or 2 of our starters to exceed the projections. If Fulmer stays, and earns a spot coming out of ST, it almost has to mean he has turned a corner. All that being said, I would think he's pretty low on most people's (and my personal list) of turn the corner candidates on our pitching staff.
