    White Sox Sign C James McCann

    Framing wouldn't be needed if umpires could call balls and strikes correctly. Let's get robot strike zones and then framing goes away.

    Guys we should target on short term deals

    Derek Dieterich got DFA'd by the Marlins. He had a pretty good season last year and is still pretty young. Plays LF/1b

    Time for robot umps. Then we wouldn't have to worry about framing.

    Back in the 90's the Sox had an A ball team in South Bend. Now it is a cubs affiliate.

    I think it's about time MLB starts looking at the technology they have on balls and strikes to call them and get rid of the home plate ump making the call.

    Large 30 team Fantasy Baseball Dynasty League

    I would be interested in playing.
  7. QUOTE (spiderman @ May 20, 2017 -> 11:02 PM) I heard on another site that Keith Law wouldn't have him in the Top 100. So Law will put Tatis Jr. in the top 100 but not Robert who looks like a 5 tool player. SMH.

    Red Sox acquire Chris Sale, White Sox get Moncada+

    Does Moncadas September call up start his service even if he doesn't get called up this year until midseason? Not sure how that works.

    Kenny Williams Leaving?

    That would make up for the Shields trade.

    Top 30 International Prospects; July 2nd 2016

    Teams don't go by arbitrary top 30 lists from mlb.com. They have their own lists and have their own scouts compiling these lists. Michael Ynoa received a record bonus when he was signed. How did that turn out? It is a crapshoot. These are 16 year old kids your talking about. The sox strategy of going for quantity is a sound strategy. You have a better chance that at least one of these guys pan out than going for the big high dollar players.

    Shields is garbage. He's pitching batting practice balls.
  12. The way Robin managed the 9th it was like he was trying to lose. Why would you walk the bases loaded with a just called up minor league pitcher who has control problems. Especially after his ridiculous excuse for pitching to Hosmer the day before.

    2014 Draft class

    Being a Hoosier homer but I would love to see Kyle Schwarber fall to our 2nd round pick. He is a better prospect than Phegley was. He will bea ssolid major league catcher.

    White Sox acquire Juan Pierre

    How much are we paying him if we are paying half of his contract? What does his contract look like?

    White Sox acquire Juan Pierre

    QUOTE (Disco72 @ Dec 15, 2009 -> 10:59 AM) Is it a stupid idea to bat him 9th? That way he has the "order" effect of being a leadoff hitter (except in the first inning) but without getting the most ABs on the team? I really don't like his career "meh" OBP in the leadoff spot. I like that idea. Having him bat 9th would have virtually the same effect as him batting leadoff except in the first inning of course and he doesnt get the bats of a leadoff hitter. Does anybody know what pitchers Kenny gave up?
