    And that's a well pitched f*** the 'Stros 4-0 White Sox Winner!

    This year jumped out at me, so I went back and looked at the final standings. Sox finished 90-72 (+18), so they were -9 from July 6 to the end of the season. If they had just been .500, they would have finished with 94 or 95 wins, which still would have either been one short of or tied with Detroit for the Wild Card. The AL Central had 3 teams with 90+ wins. No other division had more than one, and the entire National League only had one 90+ win team.

    FA Rodon / Lynn - Locked on Sox and SoxTalk Poll

    Realistically, the Sox aren't going to be willing to commit to Rodon for more than 2-3 years guaranteed due to his injury history, and I think there will be a pitching-desperate team that's willing to go 4, and maybe even 5. The only way Rodon stays is if (1) he's willing to turn down some guaranteed money to stay and (2) the Sox come up with a very creative contract containing vesting options or something like that.

    stat i saw about rodon on mlb network

    I can't believe they took time out of showing Yankees games to mention that.
  4. Someone started the thread about TA adding power and he homered, so I figured I'd give this a try.

    7/18- Astros at White Sox, 1:10

    With a lefty on the mound for Houston, I'd expect the lineup to look something like this: TA 6, Moncada 5, Abreu 3, Vaughn 7, Engel 8, Burger DH, Hamilton 9, Mendick 4, Zavala 2

    The Eloy-Vaughn-Burger-Sheets Conundrum

    Neither Sheets nor Burger are getting traded unless the return is huge. There is nothing wrong with having quality guys at AAA in case there are injuries next year like we had this year. Plus, Abreu is gone after next season so that opens a spot for one of them.

    The Eloy-Vaughn-Burger-Sheets Conundrum

    Burger will be a very nice insurance policy stashed away at AAA once Eloy is back. Sheets has a fair chance at sticking and sending Lamb packing.

    7/17- Astros at White Sox, 6:15

    Is it bad that I feel better with Goodwin up than Abreu?

    7/17- Astros at White Sox, 6:15

    If there's any consolation, that would have been a DP by Sheets anyway.

    Get the Escobar trade done now please!

    7/17 Games

    Eloy struck out swinging first time up.

    7/17- Astros at White Sox, 6:15

    The changes from yesterday are Engel from CF to bench, Goodwin from RF to CF, Sheets from DH to RF, and Burger from bench to DH, so it's not about platoon splits since the lineup just swapped Burger for Engel and on top of that made the outfield defense a lot worse.

    Jason and Steve to start traveling after ASB

    Just spend $38M on Lynn, so no money left to have announcers travel.

    Engel still not playing on consecutive days.

    Lance Lynn locked up 2 years 38 mill + club option

    If I had to guess, it's $17M per year for 2022-23 and then a club option for 2024 at something like $15M with a $4M buyout.

    Lance Lynn locked up 2 years 38 mill + club option

    Or maybe not:

    Lance Lynn locked up 2 years 38 mill + club option

    Lynn must have really wanted to stay with the Sox, since he undoubtedly could have gotten more by waiting until free agency.

    Should Tim Anderson try to add more power to his game?

    I agree he should cut down on the steals but a couple of those caught stealings were botched hit and runs.

    2021 MLB Catch-all Thread

    The Blue Jays or Yankees might challenge Oakland for that final Wild Card, but I still think Oakland gets it. I don't see the NL changing other than which team wins the NL West and which two are Wild Cards.

    GT 7/16: HOU @ SOX, 7:10

    Cease vs McCullers. Hopefully I will not cease being game thread starter after tonight.

    Bummer activated, ReyLo called up; Fry, Foster to Charlotte

    I think Sheets goes when Lamb is back and Burger goes when Eloy is back.

    Bummer activated, ReyLo called up; Fry, Foster to Charlotte

    It's the normal schedule. An off day every time the teams travel, and one day off between series if the previous series goes the max number of games.

    GT 7/16: HOU @ SOX, 7:10

    That's why the Sox are calling up Lopez. Trying to fool the Astros into thinking we're an under .500 team so they'll lose.
