    Steve Stone / Yoan Moncada's "Lack of Effort and Interest"

    He’s still got the Covid long haul. Yeah thats it.

    Giolito's slow start

    I forget who was commenting on the Score, but they said his changeup was not “parachuting in” the way it was last year and prior. And also the league hitters are sitting on it and have adjusted. He has little room for error with his stuff too.

    Giolito's slow start

    His more compact delivery is so exaggerated now Its like he’s flinging the ball from his chest, and velocity down.

    That's a White Sox SWEEEEEEP!

    Couldn’t believe all the press the Cardinals have been getting the last couple days. We’ll probably continue getting crickets from the National press.

    Let’s stop being the team that sells low on young prospects. Keep being the team that brings them over, it is how we got here.

    I break out in hives every time I see Kelly being offered in trades. This team is good enough imo not to plunder that A ball staff. As long as Crochet is a question mark as a future starter we should hang on to those kids. So we wait a couple few years, the farm has only one strength. Please keep it.

    5/13: Minnesota @ Chicago White Sox 1:10 PM CDT

    I guess thats anothet plan. Vaughn in right until Abreu retires and, I guess Cespedes takes over. But that would be a long wait for Cespedes. At the end of the day I see the Sox opting for superior defense from Cespedes, and finding a platoon situation for Eloy and Vaughn in left/DH

    How was the Crochet velocity?

    Sox sweep KC; winners thread

    Good point. Thanks for the chart. Another unscientific question….does his current compact delivery seem more exaggerated (for lack of a better word) than it was even at the beginning of current season? I actually didn’t see this game, but watching the highlights it really appeared to be very noticeably ultra-compacted. Camera angle?

    Seemed like he's struggled with it all year from spring on. Sort of left with the question of which Giolito is more real, his first Sox career or the second. We have had these waits before which didn't pan out so good. His velocity is down looks like compared to when he was going better.

    5/9 Chicago White Sox @ Kansas City Royals 1:10 PM CDT

    Hes a switch hitter so of course he should be and that’s enough of a reason.🤫 Tony LaRussa is an interesting guy.

    Its great and all, but to take this as an indicator that nothing needs to be done about the outfield would be a mistake.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    If he can do that without kicking the ball around and landing himself in the hospital, we upgraded. Sign me up.

    Why the hell is a Blake Rutherford in this organization if he can’t step in right now.....

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    So this extra innings rule is called the White Sox Killer?

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    I’d rather keep him in left and train Eloy at first. Since Eloy is dead set on playing a position. Not a fan of diminutive right handed first basemen anyway.
  17. Well hopefully TLR is giving up batting him below Garcia. *Fingers crossed*
  18. They can, but patching in scrubs like Hamilton and Lamb is not responsible. They need to make a move, and they did before this really.
  19. Yeah thanks. Miss the point.
  20. Yeah so, the lack of depth in the minors is not not a problem.

    A Kopastic White Sox Winner

    The way he mixes speeds on his fastball is impressive to say the least, and he can control it with movement. Almost like having an extra pitch.
