    Zack Collins at First Base

    I think I saw in an Athletic article that since Collins and Zavala were both going to AAA that each said they were willing to play first so both could be in the lineup. If so it makes sense to get some practice there. It has been said nowhere that he is moving there permanently. When other teams do this, they are praised for enhancing positional flexibility.

    Sox Claim Josh Osich

    Think I saw he throws 95 but I agree doesn't seem to make sense. Maybe look at for a week until better options are put out there.

    What Kind of Rebuild is This?

    It is a typical long one. It feels like forever because we never committed to the rebuild until a couple years ago. Spending money on aging vets does improve the current product but hurts your draft thus prolonging the rebuild. It would take us back to the late Kenny years of 70 some wins. IE limbo. Nothing is guaranteed so this may not work but we know limbo doesn't work. We should take this money and do everything we can to build up internationally and in our current minor leagues. Hell rival the Yankees under George where everything was "the best". Be so good structurally you become desirable as a location. It won't happen but I wish it would. Ive posted in the past on restructuring the minors from education, nutrition, sports science to coaching.

    Alec Hansen

    The total lack of command/control with everything doesn't profile to anything if he doesn't get it back. Bullpeners are often the two pitch pitchers who can't develop a third pitch. The inability to throw a strike is career threatening. I really hope he gets it back cause he was looking really really good at one time.

    3/2 vs Rockies, 2pm, whitesox.com

    I am not sure it is Jay's fault we offered him the most money. He did what Machado did, he took the most money.

    Last Two Offseasons

    Not very impressive when looked at. About the only assets you could have moved were an injured Rodon for pennies on the dollar and Abreu who is fulfilling the "mentor" role. As you stated there were some deadline deals that aren't included. We are now moving towards a bit of a 40 man crunch so I would anticipate some 2 for 1 trades and or trades for guys much further away. Looking back, not signing a ton of players in Roberts year really hurt. If you look at the Padres top 30 at least 15 are international signings (several signed by others and acquired in trade).

    Hahn on Manny Loss...

    I wonder if the fact the agent gets a percentage off of the gross not net that an agent might steer to what is better for the agent. Wonder if the agent lives in a no state income tax state if he avoids the hit or is it tied to where the player is located?

    Way to take responsibility Welly.

    I was under the impression he failed for Erythropoietin not epitestosterone. Erythropoietin increases the number of red blood cells. Used more by bikers and others in endurance activities to carry more oxygen to the muscle tissues and remove CO2.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I wonder if a deal might be struck at three $ wise to get some harder signs later if no one clearly is exciting at three?
