    2018 MLB Draft

    Trevor Larnach is in first round consideration, Cadyn Grenier is likely to go in the first three rounds, and Adley Rutschman is one of the top prospects for 2019. Why would that be concerning?

    Well, you know, with how much the White Sox have been behaving within their historical norms recently, this is an entirely reasonable position for you to take.

    I'm not rooting against Covey, Ron, just informing you how your reverse jinx works so you can use it for good.

    Unless it's a really advanced college bat, I wouldn't count on them being up by 2020.

    Why do you think that Trump won't be impeached? The special counsel investigation keeps expanding. If Trump actually committed crimes, I don't think even Republicans are dumb enough to not turn on him. If he committed crimes and he's not impeached, we might as well just throw the Constitution away, because it wouldn't mean anything anymore at that point.

    That's a problem that would sort itself out. If Bohm is there, you take him unless Mize or Madrigal is there. The FG guys seem to think he can stick at 3B, and they seem like the most knowledgeable and well informed of the places that provide information to the public to me.
  7. COULD BE. It's important to read the whole thing. For example, if he can slash .319/.495/.551 (as he's been doing in May) as a major leaguer and he can stick at C, he's going to be a special player.

    The problem with this line of thinking is there will always be a reason not to, and that's what the establishment will seize on. Each. And. Every. Time. Meanwhile, the Republican party continues their rightward authoritarian deathmarch as progressive policies get more and more popular despite no politicians espousing them. This is a problem, one that doesn't get fixed by not challenging the status quo.

    This is the purpose of a rebuild, finding assets that wouldn't have gotten an opportunity with a team trying to compete. If he can become a 2-3 WAR starter, that's a huge win. Even better if he can become more.

    If you think his market is so limited, then what would be the harm in trading him and resigning him in 2020?

    There's too much vertical break on that pitch and not enough horizontal break. Watch the two videos, the breaking pitches look completely different.

    That's interesting. He appears to be throwing a curveball there, and doesn't seem to have a slider, but in the video below (and other videos I've seen of him in 2018), he clearly throws a slider. Did he ditch the curve in favor of a slider? Does he have the ability to throw both? Here's the video I'm talking about:

    So are you saying Hillary was a bad Dem or trying to blame Bernie for her atrocious campaigning, like going after Texas when there was no chance she'd win there instead of securing the three states that ended up being the difference in WI, MI, and PA? I hope it's the former, as the latter has no real basis in reality. Also, I don't think sitting down and shutting up is something that's credit worthy, but maybe that's why you're so fond of the establishment. They're pretty good at that, especially when it matters to speak up and dissent.

    Several people unnecessarily injured and one person unnecessarily losing their life doesn't seem like a good outcome to me.

    THIS! ALL OF THIS! A THOUSAND TIMES THIS! There is no bad result of primarying a bad Dem. Worst case, you push them left and hold them to it with the threat of the primary.
