    Worried about the playoff rotation?

    Worried about the rotation a little bit and the team mojo. They had an arrogance (in a good way) and felt unbeatable, who knows if they can recreate. We’ll just have to see. As we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know

    AND THAT'S A WHITE SOX WINNER!!!

    Thats good because they were breathing down our necks. anyway, the relaxed manner the Sox have played with lately, maybe we should be rooting for Cleveland these days.

    What would TA's pro fate have been if Tatis hadn't been traded?

    Perhaps not, but perhaps anything else can happen as well given the circumstances. Tend to think he’d come up at 3rd, but it would be a good lively discussion for Hahn and co. Trades are always a possibility.

    What would TA's pro fate have been if Tatis hadn't been traded?

    Anderson wasn’t the same kind of beast at the plate as Tatis though to put the defensive concerns completely aside for a talented youngster like that. If Anderson was the monster at the dish as Tatis to be able to overlook the defense then yeah, it doesn’t go down as an Anderson move.

    What would TA's pro fate have been if Tatis hadn't been traded?

    Hard to say anything about it confidently. TA was committing errors at SS at a disturbing level. Could have gone in the direction of TA changing positions as much as anything else. This current version of him after he worked on his D is probably staying put though.

    Unfortunately the only thing they can do is take turns closing games. No easy way put of this. The thirst for Kimbrel always seemed weird.

    Vaughn's Struggles with RISP and 2 Outs

    You would have to compare his number to other rookies historically to get a grip on the significance. Anecdotally to me most rookies struggle with it. I don’t understand why he needs to be a complete hitter in his first few hundred ABs of his career

    Do the White Sox need an offensive adjustment?

    He isn’t, but since the Sox are kind of a plodding team, what he is capable of doing with his speed on the basepaths but does not is a little frustrating. As an outfielder, he would at least put the speed to some use. At second base, his lack of power is better hidden. He occupies a position that requires power. It isn’t there to optimize the lineup. So of course he is doing well, but there will always be pressure on him at third because he is not a complete player (there).

    Do the White Sox need an offensive adjustment?

    Better base running, basestealing, and speed around the power should do it. Once Cespedes gets here will be one way. Some sacred cows may need to be slain to finish the job

    Vaughn's Struggles with RISP and 2 Outs

    He’s spent a lot of energy learning new positions in real time. He should make gains in the off-season

    Sox at Twins 8/9, 7:10

    Funny thing is, in his career teams still try to pitch to him for the most part.
