    Abreu next year and in the future

    back it up with stats. You claim he's awful, let's see more than the "eye test". I've seen Realmuto, Molina, and every other C give up passed balls. And wtf even is 0-2 fastballs down the middle? How does that even relate to Grandal lol

    Which ones?

    Abreu next year and in the future

    Thank you for summing up what is wrong with so much of our fanbase. You use the "eye test" to trash the entire roster. Catcher defense can be accurately measured by stats/analytics. Every MLB organization would laugh at what you're saying. It's not 1986 anymore, nobody outside of Sox fans apparently is using the "eye test" to measure performance

    There's zero truth to anything you said. Framing is incredibly important. Sure guys can get better at it but there's a massive gap between Realmuto's framing and someone like Collins. And it's not zero sum game between framing and game-calling. Really though, its amusing to see how even one of the best players at his position, Grandal, isn't good enough for half our fanbase, and gets shredded by the "eye test" crowd. It's also depressing though because the default position seems to be: Any Sox player = terrible Any non-Sox player = amazing

    I did since 2019, now try again

    Ok. Since 2019, Grandal ranks: WAR: 2nd Defensive Rating: 7th GP: 4th You and Rob might want to find a different player to me statistically wrong criticisms about

    lol. He had a knee injury this year. Nobody disputes that.

    The injury prone bash really made me laugh though, so thanks for that. I mean, imagine calling the catcher who is 3rd in MLB in games played since 2015 "injury prone", lol.

    Your OPINION runs contrary to basic stats. Since 2015, Grandal ranks among MLB C WAR: 1st Defensive Rating (Fangraphs): 1st Games Played: 3rd Yeah that definitely sounds like the injury prone, horrible defensive catcher we should trade away, lol

    I'm still in awe. Let me guess, you think Moncada sucks too, right?

    If posters like you were GM we'd be 0-162 every season. I mean wow, what a terrible take

    Abreu next year and in the future

    lol at complaining about these threads then suggesting trading Grandal. Grandal has played 139 games since 2020 and put up 5.3 fWAR. That's elite production, and obviously he was playing hurt for most of the year. How do so many of our fans not understand how good Grandal is?

    Marshall TJS; out 2022

    Possible they'd agree on a 2 year deal, might be a good option for both Marshall and the Sox

    Offseason Thread

    The always hilarious 1st offseason meltdown thread from the worst fanbase in all of sports. This thread is already embarassing. The #1 offseason priority needs to be for 75% of Soxtalk to become Cubs fans.

    Romy our 2nd baseman of the future?

    Everyone would love Semien. He leads MLB in WAR since 2019. He'll get something like 6 yrs $180 million most likely

    White Sox playoff position tracker

    lol ok. Nobody worries like our fanbase

    In Defense of Leury

    People on here get actually upset when Leury has success. I don't get some of our fanbase.

    September Call Ups

    No it doesn't. 26 expanding to 28 is pretty ideal. Not everything requires a dumb "the cheap owners won't allow it" comment. Especially when the difference for most teams would only be a few million dollars

    Complain about Kimbrel here:

    Also, let's be real, it isn't just a "Kimbrel problem". The whole bullpen outside of Tepera and ReyLo is shaky and underperforming

    Complain about Kimbrel here:

    His velo is not down. He's struggling with command but why lie about something as easy to verify as velo?
  21. CeaseAndExist

    Complain about Kimbrel here:

    I feel like he must be tipping vs the Cubs. 7 runs in 2.2 IP vs them 3 runs in 7.2 vs everyone else
  22. CeaseAndExist


    How would Madrigal help right now? He's injured. Agree on Kimbrel though. We have a 11.5 game division lead. Got to see if Kimbrel can be the set up guy now, rather than have roles up in the air in October

    Probable Starters vs. Tampa Bay

    Why do people post false statements like this. This is just like the fans who bash Moncada for not being able to hit with RISP when he has better numbers in those situations. On July 3 Keuchel had an ERA of 4.48. Today his ERA has exploded all the way to......uh 4.48.
  24. CeaseAndExist


    Did you watch the game or just look at the box score? He got ejected, not hurt.

    Padres started Jake Arrieta today in Coors. That's where their rotation is at right now lol
