    2018-9 MLB off season free agency thread

    Polanco and Kepler would get them a better haul in trades as well if signed long term. Basically like we did with Sale, Eaton and Quintana.

    Iowa Cubs AAA team maybe.

    Arizona Fall League - Running Thread - Opens 10/9

    Tyler Flowers dominated as a hitter in the AFL one year with Braves. He was MVP I think.

    White Sox Hiring for Analytics Department

    When I was graduating from college I wrote to the White Sox to see if they had openings to help out Dan Evans, remember him. Sox were almost a leading edge team at the time with Evans, doing all sorts of computer input/output to aid the team in any way they could. Eddie Einhorn sent me back a letter, said thanks for the resume but they had no openings in their department. So I took a job offer with IBM and retired 30 years later (7 years ago). As a huge Sox fan I would have likely taken less than IBM paid me. In hindsight I am glad it was not offered, but I would think a top notch analyst would need well over 200K to do this work.

    Old Farts Only: 50 + Year Sox Fans

    We did not trade Denny McLain, he was just a kid and had to be protected under some rule. There were 3 kids and only 2 could be protected. So they protected Bruce Howard and Dave DeBusschere (yes the future NBA star). If Sox had known DeBusschere would leave a bright MLB future for the NBA. Woulda, coulda, shoulda.

    Not sure he has been hurt, he has been hitting well and stealing bases.

    He has played 5 games in the outfield, no games in the infield. DH the other 40 games I assume.

    That is what they said about Frank.

    Carlos May (the version before he blew off his thumb) Dave Nicholson (although he came from Baltimore I believe he was still just a prospect in our org) Neither likely the best, but a couple good ones.

    Thanks for looking it up, I read your first sentence and right away said, man it seems like 3 weeks now. Their hitting finally has picked up some. Pitching, at least the guys I consider starters, have been ok all year. Now they are getting some runs. Their bullpen sucks real bad most of the time.

    Sydney Pimentel got his first couple hits, while playing SS, yesterday. However, he did have 3 errors.

    We did back when we were #1. If our pitching was healthy we would be close to having 2-3 at the 4 levels above rookie ball. Not unrealistic. Not saying we need 3-4 Cease types at every level. Just someone who has a chance, for too long we have not even had those types. Too many org types.
