    Not that exciting of a night on the farm yet. But Basabe walked twice. Just a different hitter so far this year.

    Sox at Oakland 2:35 CDT: Fulmer versus Triggs

    QUOTE (Scoots @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 03:08 PM) That's kind of what I was thinking. He doesn't have an overpowering fastball, and his offspeed pitches aren't very deceptive. Which suggests to me he should have pinpoint control then, but that isn't there either. What am I missing? It's more that he can't locate his offspeed stuff, so people don't swing at them. When he has shown he can get to two strikes, his curve can do a lot of damage.

    QUOTE (ChiSoxJon @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 01:20 PM) Why do all these highly regarded arms have control issues? Lopez, Kopech, Cease, etc. Throwing a baseball with movement and speed to a small area 60 ft away is difficult.

    2018 MLB Draft

    QUOTE (DirtySox @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 11:36 AM) Too much to do at work for me to post Kiley draft snippets in case anyone wants to head that up. Some good stuff in there already. Here's a good one:

    2018 MLB Draft

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 10:37 AM) Are there really a lot of examples of going underslot with the top 5, and having that pay off big later on, since these pools have come into play? I hope it's rare the Sox draft up here. To take a guy they don't have as their top available player, so maybe they can get an upgrade around pick 40 doesn't do anything for me. I have said before, but I think the reality of the situation is they don't have true 1, 2, 3 rankings. They'll have similarly ranked players and will take the best deal to have flexibility if they DO have a higher ranked player later on who is a signing concern.
  7. Where are you seeing 21 players? I only see 5 listed at the top of the page?
  8. There was nothing on the guy from Aruba?

    Moncada

    QUOTE (Lillian @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 08:53 AM) With the exception of his strike outs, he is doing just fine, batting left handed: .256 .370 .487 That puts him near the top of Sox hitters, so far, in every category. No one is really lighting it up on this team, probably because of all of the off days and the terrible weather for hitters. If you want to do something drastic, maybe he could try facing lefties, from the left side. For my part, I'd prefer to let him continue to try to become a productive switch hitter. I just don't recall a situation where they dropped switch hitting and were actually better that handed.

    QUOTE (yesterday333 @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 08:30 AM) Yup... his obp is above .300 right now. I don't see how that such a bad thing. Sure you'd like him to not strike out so much but his obp is gonna be ridiculous when he starts getting a few hits. Like, imagine if when Narvaez hit the ball he hit it really hard.

    2018 MLB Draft

    QUOTE (hi8is @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 06:41 PM) Your evaluations are far too early and shortsighted, IMO. Also, my preference is to focus on the upcoming draft for this thread. Regarding the above posted mock draft, that sure would be interesting if picks 1 through 3 all went for pitching... giving us free reign to select any bat of our choice. San Francisco is most interesting pick to me. Who knows how they’ll want to take advantage of this position (go for a fast moving college pitcher?)

    QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 08:11 PM) The W-S guys are sporting some ridiculous BABIPs so it’s only natural we see some regression to the mean. The good news is the K rates have been pretty solid for all of them. Yeah the best part is as a team they are just not striking out.

    Luis Gonzalez turning it around, 2-4 with a home run. And Yurchak as well, 1-1 with 2 BBs

    really could use a new mock draft.

    I keep seeing Landry higher and higher. I'd wonder if he wouldn't be a pace pick, but on the other hand they may start paying attn to medicals more now.
