    What would you have rather seen from this draft?

    Abel nor Howard dropped far enough where both would be possible

    Interesting. Could Kelley be had under slot at 11? Could be a really nice pick over Abel if it leads to better opportunities in rounds 2 and 3.

    High school arm, unless Meyer or Detmers falls

    Jared Kelly pulse - Anyone disappointed if that’s who is selected?

    Quite a few mocks have Max Meyer dropping to the Sox. If size is his biggest red flag, I’m interested.

    2020 Projection for Moncada from Brooks Baseball/Roto

    If his average dips to that extent, I would expect his homers to increase

    Strasburg officially opts out

    https://www.prosportsdaily.com/articles/white-sox-a-dark-horse-to-sign-stephen-strasburg-602098.html Sox are a “dark house” for Strasburg.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Shogo Akiyama should be in the conversation. Not tremendous power, 20 homers last year, but known to be a very good defender. Turning 32, so a switch from CF to RF would seem appropriate. Good average and OBP, .303/.392 last season over 143 games. 12 stolen bases. I don’t think he’ll be very expensive, even though a few teams have interest. I like the balance and good defense he could provide. Good to have a Japanese fan support base as well.

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    He changed his approach. Maybe he regresses, but to dismiss the year he had as an anomaly and nothing more is short changing adjustments players make. His success came from hitting the other way, something he’s admitted to not doing very often previously.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Shogo Akiyama per Rotoworld Nippon Professional Baseball recently confirmed that outfielder Shogo Akiyama is an international free agent. That means he is free to sign anywhere without having to go through the posting system. Akiyama, who will turn 32 next April, batted .303/.392/.471 with 20 home runs for the Saitama Seibu Lions. He was once considered a terrific defensive center fielder, but the feeling is that he's declined in that regard in recent seasons. Still, it sounds like there's a good chance he could come to the states next year and there should be interest.
