    Promotions/Releases/Demotions of Sox System

    There's also been talk about Adolfo given the field a try again.

    Promotions/Releases/Demotions of Sox System

    Looks like Flores, Foster & Thompson are all going to B-Ham. Robert, Gonzalez, Battenfield, Henzman, Johnson , Rivera to W-S. OF is now even more crowded.

    6/20 Games- KOPECH NIGHT!!

    From my experience watching the Charlotte feed it's usually about 1-2 MPH slow. But the last Jordan Stephens start I watched he was sitting 87-88 so I'm starting to think it might even be a bit slower lately.

    6/17 Games

    There's nothing overly impressive about Stephens but when you watch him pitch there's never a moment where you feel like he isn't in control. At this point he's definitely #1 on my next man up list.

    6/7 Games

    I'm a Blake Battenfield believer, I can't wait to actually see the guy pitch.
  6. I would have a hard time ranking any of the arms we just drafted over Henzman. Dude has been a ground ball dealing machine. Anyone with the ability to get guys to pound the ball into the ground at his rate has a chance at a long big league career.
  7. I have nearly 200 IP to evaluate Hanson and despite the time he's missed I'm working under the assumption his injury is not serious. After 100 PAs from both Robert & Madrigal I may change my opinion, but for now he has the benefit of the doubt. It would put my mind at ease if they came out and said he's do back soon. The longer things stay quiet like this the more paranoid I become.
  8. Ranking either Robert or Madrigal is difficult at the moment. Just give me like 100 PAs to build an opinion. There should almost be an incomplete rank until they can play a few games. At the moment I'd put Jimenez, Kopech & Hansen all above them simply because I have a much better idea of what those guys could eventually become. If Zack Collins keeps mashing and I keep seeing positive blurbs on his receiving improvements I'd might be inclined to rank him in the top 4.

    6/6 Games

    Some ugly pitching lines tonight, but Henzman keeps rolling. He needs a bump soon.

    Got Milb here's the rub

    The Baron feed is by far the worst of any MiLB team. It's so bad they shouldn't even bother.
  11. I'm 100% in favor of W-S. I hate that we draft advanced college hitters and leave them in the low minors for entire seasons.

    The 2018 MLB Draft Thread (Tracker in OP)

    I strained an oblique playing softball. Didn't feel right for months. You can't swing a bat for a decent while with a severe strain.
  13. Promote Laz and start him in Kanny. No point in wasting ABs in GF.

    He's hurt. Probably done for the college season.

    I'm glad the Sox didn't draft Singer, but I'll be really rooting for the kind now.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Singer fall a bit more. Happy with the pick.

    Draft Day Poll: Who is your guy at #4?

    Bohm with a slight lead over Madigral.

    2018 MLB Draft

    In general I'd be OK if they just stopped drafting arms in the 1st round period.

    6/2 Games

    I keep expecting to open the box scores and see an inning pitched from Hansen somewhere. Dude's been throwing bullpen sessions for a month, no? Might as well have him throw some live innings.

    Nick Hostetler Draft History

    All things considered you have to give Hostetler some props for 16/17 drafts. He gets a pass on Burger as no-one could have seen that coming, but I feel really good about a lot of the arms added from these last two drafts. My only complaint is if we're going to take advanced college players we need to challenge them faster. I don't think there's a lot of value in guys like Gonzalez hitting the crap out of the ball in low-A ball or Henzman throwing a billion ground balls a start. We have way to much dead weight in AA/AAA where we could just push bodies up that may have some future value.

    2018 MLB Draft

    After watching a bit of Singer today I'm on the anyone but Singer bandwagon. I'll be happy with any of the 3 big collage bats.

    2018 MLB Draft

    After reading all the futuresox pieces I can't tell who i want anymore in round 1, so I'm just going to root for Beer in round 2. Just give me two solid collage bats with 1 & 2 and I'll be satisfied.

    5/24 Games

    Anthony Villa through 100+ PAs is somehow putting up a near .500 BABIP. That's just crazy. That dude needs to pick my lotto numbers.
