    Kopech called up

    First start. The service time group will be out in force. While there is merit to that philosophy, I still think he needs September to learn and extend his innings to 180 or so.

    This is far too late to be worth a call up.

    Kopech called up

    I think it is different with pitchers. Health and fickle nature of them makes waiting more of a gamble as I posted in another thread. I said earlier in the year that kopech had a better chance of being called up before Jimenez.

    Heyman: Eloy/Kopech may not be promoted this year

    It is if Kopech needs shoulder or elbow surgery within the next 5 years.

    Kenny on Rick and Staff...

    Is it the fact that he expected Engel to be able to bunt or the strategy of the bunt you have an issue with?

    GoFundMe in lieu of health insurance?

    Kind of like the HSA. Many companies as going to those instead of insurance. The hospitals will often discount the bills up to 60% for cash. My wife who works for an insurance company isn't offered traditional insurance. The company offers an HSA and seeds it with 5000. Catastrophic does come with it. Maybe that's the why to do universal health insurance. Everyone who signs up gets an HSA of a certain amount. Then they can add as they want.

    If you the the post, it says do what other organizations do, not what the Sox normally do.

    Heyman: Eloy/Kopech may not be promoted this year

    By that logic, if this organization has no track record of success, it doesn't matter what they do it will fail. If you don't think they will succeed then go with the conventional ideas that most other organizations use, which is what I described.

    When will the White Sox be good?

    They will be good in 2020. They will truly compete for WS in 2021.

    It's not that it's meant as a developmental league, although some teams do that. The fact is that the talent in the MLB is better than the minors. There is a certain amount of learning that goes with facing the best talent. It's going to happen. each time they move up a level they need to learn how to face that level of talent. There is no place in the minors they will expereince facing someone like Verlander with the velocity and the curveball and the control. They need to learn that when they face that talent.

    Many ties there is a difference between contacts and glasses. He may have been contacts and someone convinced him to try the glasses.

    Kenny on Rick and Staff...

    The true question is if his sore knee and bad hammy are bothering him enough that he cant6run out plays, should he even be playing ? I know you don't think players should try on what look like easy outs but if injuries are their excuse they shouldn't be playing.
