    There are probably only 5 aces left in this game, and everyone ace-adjacent is still getting paid like one. He's still a very durable starter whose had long stretches of dominance. Would I pay him? No probably not. I think Jerry's pitching heterodoxy was perfectly understandable. Problem is his orgs also didn't invest that money in scouting, development or ...anywhere else to take advantage.

    sometimes Giolito gets out of sync with his mechanics, then he gets in sync with his mechanics. Seems bizarre to throw the spider tack stuff in (it's the new steroids bullshit of this board, and I remember when CEASE was the spidertack accused). Last year in the first half he had a 4 era. In the second, a 2.65 era. He's having a bad stretch. He's our new konerko. And just like with konerko, with every extended slump this board will claim he's about to be DFAd.

    love how it took a few years but Yaz has reverted to that soft-single-hittin, bad defensive catcher the sox have coveted for 20 years.

    Rumor: Sox Pursuing Jose Quintana

    I still don't think the "he never played in games for the sox" gets them off the hook. from the big Athletic profile, Preller was scouting him in Instructs in AZ, and tracked him in extended spring training. It is honestly a bit bizarre that he signed July 2, 2015, and still didn't show up in any games in AZL or DSL by late June. But this was from the oral history article: So it's not like the guy just never ended up in the ball field. He was at their fall instructs, he was at spring training. He clearly had huge growth the end of 2016. But anyway, it was 6 years ago. Sucks so much though.

    19 y.o. gabriel rodriguez with the very rare CGSO in DSL. last year he had a 9 SO/9 ratio which is strong but walked a ton of batters. This year, he's cut down a bit on the BBs, and only 1 BB in 7 IP is pretty great.
  13. I know, i am disappointed in myself.
  14. hard to know much as fans but happ feels like a guy we'll have to pay a dollar for .75
  15. I may have self edited soto as not available (for the sox)

    it's also bad that tampa isn't interested in our non-top prospects thou
  17. imo you can either fix the logjam of positionless players or fix the RHP-hitting deficiencies, but you can't do both cheaply. You can go Bell, or you can go a Laureano-ish type player. Otherwise you shop for a Reynolds.
  18. Jenkins is a good reminder that 2nd round tackles are like the 1st round prep righthander of the NFL.

    Simas is starting today, that's exciting. BOY I CANT WAIT FOR THIS CLASS TO MAKE ITS WAY TO AFFILIATE BALL I want Mario in ACL just crushing 500
  22. Yeah sorry I'm out on Gallo, out on Conforto. Gallo can be fixed, I don't think it will be this season. Conforto, just no way I'm touching that guy. Will probably be short-sighted but just seems too dumb to get injured as a free agent.
