    08/17: Astros at Sox. 7:10, NBCSN

    How do we know what he did or didn't believe or realize because he didn't say it to the press. What counts are the private locker room conversations

    Are there any shortstops available?

    Yolmer Sanchez is being dfa'd today. He's not hitting all but is a great fielder at least. He might do better back at home

    Vaughn with 9 RBIs in 4 game series

    Frank -- Paulie -- Jose -- Andrew Get him a long term deal now! Have Jose go year-to-year. Money won't be a problem as Jose is exactly the type of person to whom JR will be very generous. Next year they should split 1st and DH 50/50
  4. Kuechel started today for Arizona and turned it around -- NOT. 4.1 innings; 4 earned runs; 6 hits; 3 walks; and strangely 7 k's

    GT 6/21: TOR @ SOX, 7:10, NBCSC

    You know what frustration is: being a Toronto fan tonight. Blow a save in the 9th, 10th, and 11th!
  6. Don't set yourself up for disappointment. Going into this trip, everyone would have been good with 4-2. That's now the worst case.

    6/17 G/T White Sox v Houston 7:10 Chgo Time lift off

    6/10 White Sox vs Texas Rangers, 7:10

    3 man bench. If you pinch run here you use up two of the three.

    6/10 White Sox vs Texas Rangers, 7:10

    A starting pitcher with only 4 innings and 3 hits and less than 80 pitches is always going to be left in. The five inning thing has nothing to do with it since he didn't start the first.

    Scored in 4 consecutive innings.

    GT 5/15: Yankees @ SOX,1:10 pm CT, NBCSC

    just to play devil's advocate: TLA would say that his approach on regular season line-ups and bench utilization equals 6 pennants and 3 WS championships
  13. In 2 weeks, the roster has to go down to 26. Who goes and who stays. The good news is that with more depth than in the past, this is harder to do. CATCHERS: Current=2; Goal=2: Grandal, McGuire OTHER POSITION: Current=11 + 2 on IL; Goal=11; Soon as Pollack and Moncada come off IL, two have to go. Assumed roster locks: Pollack, Moncada, Abreu, TA, Harrison, Robert, Jimenez, Leury 2 of these 5 have to go: AV, Burger, Engel, Mendick, Sheets It looks like Burger or Sheets will go (along with Mendick) PITCHERS: can only keep 13 out of 20 current 15 + 4 on IL (Giolito, Kelly, Lynn, Burr) + 1 Potential (Cueto) Excluding Lynn and Burr for now, that's 18 for 13 spots . Assume: Giolito and Kelly available May 1st; Cuerto decision contract required by 5/15. Roster locks: Giolito, Cease, Kopeck, Keuchel, Hendricks, Graveman, Kelly, Bummer Only 3 of these 10 can stay -7 have to go: Cueto, Banks, Crick, Foster, Lambert, Reylo, Ruiz, Severino, Sousa, Velasquez For the 3, it looks like to me: Reylo stays; One of Cueto/Velasquez/Lambert; One of Sousa/Severino; Banks/Crick/Foster/Ruiz all go

    Chicago vs Boston Game 3

    It's on the NBC network; not just local Chicago. I'm in NYC

    Chicago vs Boston Game 3

    It's Stone and Benetti, with Euclis, on NBC. It was just the pre-game that was only on Peacock.

    Crosstown Series Game One--6:40 CT

    If they are sitting Robert to be cautious on slippery field, then I'm okay with it.

    4/29- White Sox vs Angels, 6:10

    general question: when a team makes a last minute change in its starting pitcher, can the other team change to a totally different starting line-up?
  19. gogosox1959


    If you want a #4.5 pitcher at the deadline, it's going to have to be Burger or Sheets going. If the guys who are supposed to hit are hitting then having no hit good defense at 2nd is fine. If they are not hitting, then it doesn't matter. Lefty bat is the greater need so Burger would have to go.

    Conforto hurt

    This will go down as the biggest agent/player miscalculation of all time. First he turns a long term deal with Mets for about $100mm then turns down QO of $18.4mm.

    Eloy Out 6-8 Weeks

    There would be a problem making first base flatter: the first baseman has to be able to find it by feel. As to coasting to the ball: it's about playing smart and knowing the game score and situation. If you're losing 7-0 you should never dive.
