    Keith Law on Colson Montgomery

    Someone asked on what whether Montgomery would be in his midseason top 100: "in a word, no." What I glean from the (very positive) write-up is that he just hasn't proven enough yet against quality competition. Said Colas had "trouble with the curve" which is I guess not surprising.
  2. Man double V has got to do better than that. We're going to need him with this 8-game week coming up. Great series. Now come the money series'.

    Notice: We're about to get hot

    The Sox have the front-line starting pitching to compete with the Astros and Yankees. Otherwise, hope for a 2nd half reversal for the slumping good hitters, hope that the manager stops jamming the lineup with utility players, and hope that the FO doesn't buy-high on first-half flukes at the deadline. Mostly hope.

    2022 MLB Draft Thread

    Yep. And Law has the Sox mocked to another funky delivery likely reliever guy.

    I hope that applies to taking likely relievers in the first-round too.

    Sox trying to get Moncada more aggressive

    The White Sox org. loves their hitters hacking at the plate.

    Retool Time

    Abreu and Giolito could/should bring back some close-to-the majors talent. And they could move some players in July, which should be a seller's market, for lower minors guys. And then move some low-minors guys in the offseason, when the market is more balanced. And they could trade some of these relievers; now it's pointless if they settle for Rule 5 guys like Hahn did for Soria, Swarzak et al. Now this would take a deft hand, and active engagement in the July trade market, little of which this FO has shown before.

    Heck Sheets has been much better since his 2-week trip to Charlotte.

    FutureSox: Draft Profiles

    Another corner infielder? I realize he'd be c. 4 years away, but still. The Gonzaga pitcher is intriguing, but looking at some youtube, it seems that he's got a slight hitch at the bottom of his windy delivery.

    Retool Time

    That is not punting 2023 at all. Contending teams make proactive trades like this. Trade Giolito now and you get 2 good players in return.

    Retool Time

    It won't, but it should start in midseason. And while Giolito has an extra year, part of a creative retool is to think a few moves ahead. And that extra year raises his value a lot. And waiting until December reduces his value a lot. Boston, San Franciso, Milwaukee and maybe Tampa could use Abreu Pretty much any contender could use Giolito. Perhaps something for a reliever. Pollock et al for just salary relief.

    Your Mid Season Top 10

    Sommer has a great K rate, pretty low H/9 both in college and in the minors; he just walks way too many. But he's really interesting, especially for what was essentially a late round pick (r 10, but a puntee). Ramos takes his walks.; not super, but 10%. I hope it's indicative of good patience and strike zone understanding, and not just wild pitching coming his way. There seem to be a lot more interesting players to follow this year than last year.
  13. The farm was universally ranked #30. One first round draft pick may be a top 100 prospect soon enough (and others are looking good), but that's routine in other organizations. This team doesn't need to rebuild - it needs to retool. Trading some guys in July could help in the retool - although that would require a lot of work from the FO, which they haven't been willing to do in most July trading periods. Rule 5 guys in return simply won't cut it. Giolito has value, but it's severely depressed. Too bad as he'd be the one to trade as the org. pretty obviously doesn't want to extend him.
  14. If this team remains in the doldrums, late July will be used for giveaways of non-core players. Salary dumping will be the focus (they won't bother trying to get prospects), with the idea to keep this august front-office in good graces with the Chair.

    Trayce coming through in the 9th to tie the game. Good to see him doing well.
