    Kershaw perfect through 7, pulled after 80 pitches

    Love the quote but no new age manager would have the balls to try and take the ball from him! I love Scherzer for his competitive fire. He acts like a older time pitcher.

    4/12 Games

    Micker played for charlotte, Kubat 3 shut out relief innings. Down in A, Beard doing a little something including a steal of home. He was supposed to be really raw. It would be nice if he became something.
  3. Took a look at Mariners farm. Their #6 prospect starts against us tonight. He would be #1 in our system and there are two more 55FV pitchers above him and a 70FV OF and 60FV SS. Not wanting to trade places, but their future looks bright.

    Interim 5th Starter?

    Our best hope is he pitches well. After Gio and Lynn are back, Keuchel tweaks something and misses 3-5 starts. Problem solved LOL. I cannot, on a pitching starved team, hope our player does poorly.

    Interim 5th Starter?

    Under the premise , he has to be somewhat effective to approach 160, you would expect a grievance being filed. He could quite possibly win.

    Baines has major transplant surgery

    Heart and lung. Dang. Was on ECMO before surgery. Everyone sign your cards! You can sometimes positively affect ten plus families but even if it is one that’s enough. Any part of me that can help someone, they are welcome to have if I go in a way they can use me. Course they may chuckle when they see my liver………. I have participated in harvests and transplants and the people on these teams are awesome and very respectful. My friend lost his young son tragically and I think knowing he goes on has been really helpful in the worst situation a parent could ever imagine.

    I hope the pitching advances early. The last thing I want to see is no pitching emerge and the Sox draft a college arm that can “get up quickly though limited upside and likely reliever “ profile. That’s fine if it is non first round senior type for 10k where you could accomplish both cheap relief and $ versatility for other picks.

    4/9 Games

    Think I am getting MILB worked out. Benjamin for AAA? Had a 8.29 ERA in PCL last year. All the A-AAA playing. https://www.mlb.com/prospects/stats/affiliates?teamId=145&date=04/09/2022 https://www.milb.com/scores/chicago-white-sox/2022-04-09

    2022 Prospect Predictions

    Second big picture and I know that it isn't the most important function of the minors, but I hope our affiliates are more competitive this year for the sake of their local fans. We had some horrendous records last year. I am not advocating a lot of over age non prospects but I think it can be useful to a player's development to learn in a winning environment. You are much more likely to hit behind runners/move them over in close games than when you are getting your brains beat in. If the team sucks, it is natural to self focus not focus on the team. Yes I am older.

    2022 Prospect Predictions

    I will go bigger picture. The young pitchers show some promise. Others improve and we move up to a farm in the 15-20 range, provided we don't have to trade a bunch.

    Trying to get right link for MILB. Sorry, I didn't have a spring training. https://www.mlb.com/prospects/stats/affiliates?teamId=145&date=04/06/2022 https://www.milb.com/scores/chicago-white-sox/2022-04-06

    Spring Training thread

    Looks like a fair number of 10-8 games.

    4/5 Games!!!!!!!!

    I guess the bullpen guys who don’t make the big club. Possibly Severino, Burr, Foster . Zavala if sent down and clears.
  19. Just as kind of a fyi for people, ACL requirements are different for different people and activities. A surgeon friend of mine completely tore his in high school. Never repaired. Ski’s double blacks every winter. Small subset of population maintains stability without it. In no way suggesting that is the case or advocating not fixing just information.

    This is post trade (which was not a salary dump) and per spotrac but they list the Sox payroll as #7. Respectable for the window? On the right side of the page, they have the luxury tax calculation and have the White Sox at 210 million. They have JR within 20 million of paying the luxury tax! I am not sure anyone had this in their predictions. I find fault when I think I see it but conversely, one should give credit when due. I certainly can fault some roster construction but uncle Jerry is spending more than I expected. Perhaps season tickets have jumped post lockout resolution? I am not pro Jerry but trying to be fair. Looking for my fire retardant clothing……….lol. Side note, could you imagine this board if we let Jansen walk at 1yr 16million only to trade for Kimbrel at 1-16?
  21. BamaDoc


    I hope we will have payroll room to add. I do feel fairly confident that Jerry will not pay a tax and that for us, the 230 tax threshold will be a hard cap. I don't agree with that but hey it is easy to spend other peoples money.

    The Harry Rules

    Absolutely hilarious read on (for some of us) our old Sox announcer. https://theathletic.com/3204000/2022/03/30/the-harry-caray-rules-a-step-by-step-guide-to-a-night-out-with-one-of-baseballs-most-legendary-characters/ Wish I could have experienced it first hand but was to young for bars during his Sox days. Hearing him in the cooler on air, tossing beers to fans, talking like a fan not a corporate shill………Harry !
  23. There will be shortened time to get ready for the season. Starters will be held back awhile as far as how many pitches/deep they go to avoid injuries. For relievers, I think you limit innings but also avoid back to back days for awhile. With the possibility that Kimbrell is not traded before the start of the season and he seems to be more effective closing, could he and Liam split closing duties for maybe a month while arms regain strength? Say Liam gets odds and Kimbrell even days. You might have to adjust if there are blowouts but perhaps neither going more than 2-3 days without pitching. There were times last year where I think Liam was over worked and this would prevent over work/injury risk while it exists. If Kimbrell is pitching better in a closer role(part time) then you would maximize his trade value. You could do similar things with the others in the pen at the start of the season for injury prevention. Just thinking ..........

    The MLB lockout is lifted!

    cancelled my MLBtv renewal. My small symbolic act.

    Request for mods

    I don't know if you have any control over this or not but I humbly request that the 10-1 Astros over our beloved Sox game score be removed from the right side of the Soxtalk headquarters page. It just sucks to look at that every time I come here and if the work stoppage causes games to not be played it will suck more. Thanks in advance for all y'all do!
