    Royals vs Sox Sunday Matinee...1:10 pm CST First Pitch

    Not sure that isn’t a better idea than Vaughn. Right now, Vaughn the White Sox’ Patrick Williams. It would be one thing if Vaughn had a track record of production as a professional baseball player. We’re shoving these guys lije Vaughn and Garcia into the lineup like there is a good reason to.

    the TLR managing thread

    Hard to pinpoint the exact problem. Of course there are the specific moves you can look at. Yet the biggest problem is that the team’s mojo is gone. Whether or not Dr Evil or Tony Larussa stole it. Or if Tony Larussa has become evil.

    Dear Rob Manfred

    HIlarious we do garbage things like artificially putting a man on second, and baseball won't use the freaking electronic strike zone box for appeals. Out of preserving the essence of the game

    We Thought We Have A Good Bullpen?

    Perhaps. But by virtue of spending all that money on him he is being forced into the action at this point, albeit not in great situations so far, and not abundantly. I think Karma bites a team in the ass if they don't build a team according to prioritized needs on paper

    I was afraid he would be overpowered at the plate actually. He does have a great eye, but I thinkin essence in the long run, he willbe overpowered by being only moderately productive

    I can't believe how much better spent 54 million could have been in the outfield. We're still acting like a class B organization, afraid of it's own players, and also afraid to follow up initial investments intelligently. Eloy should have been and would have been replaced in left already with a legitimate outfielder if this was the Yankees. And Maybe the Yankees would have spent 54 million on a closer, but I believe they would have spent their energy on priorities first.

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    I'm not sure that he would have more value to the White Sox long term than a real left fielder, which is kinda where I was going with that. The Sox can't leave it up to friggin Colas, Eloy and Engel. A competant, serious organization would not. Mercedes maintaining his value as a hitter, or just as a prospect atm, combined with a pitching prospect would make the most obvious trade bait now or later. Eloy has DH on lockdown, so let's get used to the idea of trading Mercedes imo

    Well, I was gonna title a thread, 'What if Hendricks keeps blowing it?' (ALA the recent threads), but I guess this'll do....

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    Just given his age, if Yermin keeps hitting, I think we have to look at his place in the lineup and project Eloy in that role. The injury may force the team to trade Yermin and prospects for a real left fielder. I mean, the Sox can’t go on like this...right?

    If Mercedes is real, he will unlock this lineup when Eloy returns

    Not to far off from Oscar Colas. Little less upright.

    Take a hindsight look at some of those old rosters, and you likely cannot point out a convincing reason that was a better course of action.
