    Why doesn't Tony play Engel more than Goodwin/Leury?

    Today's Crazy Play as I Saw it

    I didn't realize it's no longer allowed. To me, it all comes down to the home plate ump giving the safe sign during the play...as many here have detailed. Right or wrong, it ended the play for Moncada...no way of knowing if he would have gone back to touch the plate. And how do you call him out if he was never tagged? (Admittedly, I don't recall whether he was tagged or not...but someone here said he wasn't, so I'm going with that). No matter, though...the safe call ended the play.

    I'm surprised the Sox didn't protest this game.

    Today's Crazy Play as I Saw it

    Normally, I'd agree. Two things make this different. One is the 20 second rule. The second is that the home plate ump gave the safe sign. Moncada saw that and assumed that meant he touched the plate. If the runner doesn't touch the plate on a play, the ump makes no sign--safe or out. This umpire's error, I believe, overrides what's seen on the replay. Benetti was perfect on his announcing of this play.

    Eaton to Atlanta rumor

    Appears Eaton's been released. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/07/white-sox-release-adam-eaton.html

    MVP Abreu has covid

    From one who almost never posts...be accurate. Tested positive for COVID antibodies, meaning he had COVID (Jan.), was asymptomatic, and now needs to go through testing protocols. But to say he currently has COVID is not correct.

    DH Options

    Any thoughts on Puig or the Cespedes who has actually already played in the majors?
  8. Let's hope, Sonofa...and nice add, RayRay!
  9. Doesn't mean anything that Wheeler's brothers are retweeting. We brought Jon Jay and Yonder Alonzo to lure Machado...so until it's official...
  10. When you're as old as Jerry, you can be a "new" Jerry.
  11. If I'm Jerry...and I'm nearly old enough to be...that tweet alone pushes me to spend another $5 MM to get him signed.

    Moustakas linked to Sox again

    QUOTE (Tony @ Feb 20, 2018 -> 01:46 PM) I agree on the comp pick, for the length and as much time as Moose would see for the Sox, that doesn’t bother me. But by all reports he plays a slightly above average 3B, doesn’t really get on base and hits HRs (at least in 2017). Unless it’s a VERY good deal, I just don’t like it. I give you...Matt Davidson!

    Mark Lowe and Machi Traded to The White Sox

    QUOTE (fathom @ Jul 21, 2017 -> 05:56 PM) JR being cheap as hell again Jesus! In May, 81-year-old Jerry Reinsdorf spent $52 million to sign 19-year-old Louis Robert. Can we stop typing crap like, "JR being cheap as hell again"? There's no reason to be overspending on anyone who won't be at their peak performance level 2-3-4-5 years from now. Give the owner a break already.

    Teams have upped their offers in Q derby in the last week

    QUOTE (flavum @ Feb 15, 2017 -> 04:28 PM) MLB Network's Top 100 Players Right Now starts tonight. Quintana has never been on this list before. I think he'll be in the first show tonight (81-100). (Q was 77) So teams are balking at trading a couple top prospects for the 77th best player in the game who's also wrapped up with an affordable contract and is a left-handed starting pitcher? Makes no sense. Especially because his classic delivery (lefty Tom Seaver-esque) likely affords him greater durability than Chris Scissorhands, anyway.
