    2019 Video Game Thread

    Anyone playing The Show?? This years gameplay has been hugely disapointing. It's in a pretty terrible state. But I made World Series this year and the content has been pretty good. White Sox have diamond versions of Luis Robert, Nick Madrigal, Kopech (throws 102 mph even with 100+ pitches lol), Dane Dunning, Andrew Vaughn, Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Yeah, any news you guys get compile here please! I come looking for some information. It is my belief (outside looking in) that the season won't start, that there will be a nasty strike, and things aren't looking good at all for baseball. Seems like the time table here for July baseball would be insane given what is said above. Anyone have opinions?

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Your posts are garbage here. First, your assumption (in other post) that the vast majority of us are going to get it may be true, but it's not about that. It's about stretching that timeline out so hospitals can compensate with it. We know we are likely going to get it, but if we do get it, we want proper health to back it up. We won't get that if it all commences instantly like it did in Italy and the hospitals can't help. Now you are suggesting us to shrug our shoulders with death. Like, ah, who cares if some old people die, it's nature. We've been fighting off 'nature' our whole life, no reason to get pessimistic and downright hateful now. Some of those you speak about are our friends, family members, and others who simply aren't ready to die yet to a virus because the infrastructure wasn't in place to protect them.

    Who will be our closer by mid-season

    Colome is toast. In fantasy drafts, I don't spend $2 on this guy. This will become a big story in the first few months of the season and the bullpen will become a key piece of the managers duties. From Pitcherlist: No. 20: Alex Colome (Chicago White Sox) How does someone with 30 saves, a 2.80 ERA and 1.07 WHIP a year ago end up this low? Well for starters, Alex Colome grades out among the bottom third or worse among closers in every single metric used for these rankings. There’s literally no underlying stat to get excited about with him. As his paltry 22% K rate shows, he lacks any K upside. His .215 BABIP was .64 points lower than his career average and the second-lowest among these closers. Colome does possess a pretty good cutter (10.9 pVAL) and with the usage at 71% last year (a 16% increase from 2018), it has really become his go-to offering. Colome always seems to outperform his underlying numbers each year and with the White Sox much-improved, Colome might actually stick around past the trade deadline. There’s certain to be some negative regression but if you’re just looking for some cheap, durable saves late in the draft, Colome could be your guy.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    We absolutely SHOULD trade McCann if we get some reasonable piece(s) back. This is a guy that prior to last year was terrible. Last year was a clear career year for him and will forever be marked as such. If we can trade his value based on that career year, especially with him only having one year left on his contract, we should 100%. It's a matter of whether any other team is desperate at catcher enough to give us a worthy prospect or piece back. I'm all for it tho. We can't sit here and assume Grandal is going to get injured. We can play that all day. What if Moncada gets injured. what if Eloy goes down. Why don't we have back ups to the back ups? Just trade him and get a good piece back that'll be here 5+ years.

    MLB cheating scandal

    Just throwing out a hypothetical for those that want to answer it: If the White Sox cheated in a similiar way as the Astros, what would you do with your fandom? Would you remain a White Sox Loyal fan? Switch teams? etc.

    2019 Video Game Thread

    Can't wait for March 13 access to the new MLB The Show 2020. I don't play much franchise these days, but might have to start one up with the White sox. I figure i'll sim the first year and then land Mookie Betts in FA, maybe make a run at Joc Pederson and Trevor Bauer. Possibly look towards trading the farm for either Snell or Ketel Marte (just a personal favorite in the game). Could go something like OF: Eloy, Roberts, Betts IN: Moncada, Anderson, Madrigal, Abreu, Grandal DH: Either A. Vaughn if I don't add another offensive piece (this is dependent on how good his stats are in the game) or go with Ketel Marte (in which case I'd probably DH Eloy and have Ketel in the OF) or some form of Edwin/Joc Pederson. SP: Gio, Kopech, Cease, Keuchel and then a signing/trade (Bauer preferred or Snell if I get greedy) Throw Reynaldo lopez in the bullpen, give Bummer the closers role, maybe sign Britton if he ends up on free agency. Feeling goooood man! Semi-realistic and not too video gamish. Play on high levels of difficulty and rock it out.
  8. I'm going to Wrestlemania, Y'all! The tickers were gifted to me and it's a fairly nice seat in the stadium, I'm super stoked. Card is looking so-so, but every year I watch WM and enjoy it so i'm super thrilled to get this once in a lifetime opportunity for WM. So far: I'm definitely looking forward to The Fiend vs. Cena -- Even tho the WWE makes boneheaded decisions with giving up the title to Goldberg in a squash, I loved the Fiends work the past 6 months. Having him vs. Cena is a big win for me. Outside of that I can't honestly say I'm looking super forward to any other match ups, but at the same time, I can't say that I hate too much. I only "hate" Reigns vs. Goldberg and even that is OK 'cause I know it'll be quick and action packed. Might as well put two of the guys I don't want to see in a match like this. Best case scenario. Drew vs. Brock I'm cool with. I like Drew. All the woman's matches are decent, but I wish they were built up better. Rhea/Shayna have a lot of work to do this upcoming month to win me over. My favorite Bayley needs a good opponent.

    MLB cheating scandal

    "Astros outfielder Josh Reddick just told reporters he has received death threats via social media — and that in one case someone wished cancer upon his children. Reddick said he’s not the only one in the Astros’ clubhouse who had received death threats, either." I don't know the full story here, but apparently Reddick/etc. where trolling people on twitter before and now this has all transpired. IMO This is really on Manfred's head... he's the one who said the punishment these players will get will be enough. He's almost begging fans to punish these guys.

    KW says "no Puig"

    I 100% don't trust Nomar M. I hated the move when it was made and still hate it today. We had so much ability to go after Nick C, Y. Puig, M. Ozuna (super cheap deal), or make a trade, yet we are OK with a lousy below average Nomar Mazaraa. The one major move of the offseason that I've hated, otherwise I feel pretty good with how the W'Sox handled it. The reason why I've hated the move is not because of what we gave up... it's because the White Sox feel 100% fine with handing him the starting RF and foregoing the other options. Imagine getting Ozuna on his current contract.. that woulda been awesome. The Rockie are regularly known for blocking their youngsters. They might be the single worst team in the majors at young player development. The white Sox on the other hand give their prospects long term contracts to get them up to the league as fast as possible. Puig to the Rockies means Hilliard/Hampson/McMahon/Tapia all have more issues getting playing time.

    KW says "no Puig"

    This is such a dumbass typical Colorado Rockies move... they have all the young talent, all spots covered, yet they'll happily sign a mediocre veteran to block their rookies.... Wish the Sox had the mojo to get this done, Puig helps us out nicely since we only have 2 real OFrs.

NL West has 3 excellent teams, although the Dodgers should run away with it. AL East and AL West are pretty nice divisions, but not as good as NL E and C. AL C is kinda up for grabs between the top three teams. You can also use this thread to post BOLD MLB predictions, i.e. who you think will have a surprising year and their stats.

    Michael Kopech

    I don't think we can pencil him in for anything at this point. We gotta see how he pitches first. Spring training will be a welcomed sight (assuming hes pitching then). I think we will get a lot of our information from that.
