    7/21- Sox at Rays, 12:10, NBCSC

    Cease was having command issues in AAA and wasn’t exactly on fire when he was called up. His struggles shouldn’t be a surprise. Hopefully he straightens himself out soon, or at least before the Sox should be good, which apparently is years from now since they are only 2 1/2 years into a 5 year rebuild.

    He will be really good once he gets some command. It may take a while.

    Didn’t the Sox sweep these dopes in Tampa last season? They will win at least one, maybe 2, then sweep the Marlins and everyone will be talking about finishing near .500again.

    Steve Stone with a dose of reality for Sox fans

    And if they are still struggling in year 5, it's only year 5 of a 7 year rebuild. This rebuild shouldn't be as long as others. They had 3 assets they were able to sell for top prospects. Theo didn't have that. It should move the rebuild ETA up at least a season or two.

    Luis Robert

    160 games played now in his minor league career .960 OPS with 59 steals. Not bad.

    What concerns me are injuries. They tend not to stop as you get older. I know Kopech and Rodon and Dunning will have no issues with their TJS even though White Sox minor league OF Adofo did. Anderson will never get hurt again. Eloy getting injured all the time will just stop. Robert's injuries will just stop, on and on and on. Hopefully, they all become healthy and stay there, but odds are it isn't going to happen that way.

    Tough one. Now 8-8 vs. KC this year.8 out of KC's 36 wins are vs. the Sox. 22%.

    So if Moncada went 0-4 with 4 k's, would that be a devastating blow to the rebuild? I prefer to watch them play well myself. Besides, if the draft another Madrigal, people complain, too little not enough power, every team plays him like a pitcher. If they use their losing to draft Vaughn, can only play 1B. is only 5'10".....At least winning makes more people happy than whoever the prize is for losing.

    Jorge Soler has future White Sox written all over him. Last night he pulls up on a foul ball and almost has it him him in the face with no effort to catch it. Then gets thrown out rounding second a bit too much. That's about as White Sox as it gets.

    I really doubt one game vs. KC in July is going to determine Yoan Moncada's future fate. This good loss for the rebuild crap is crap. It isn't one game or one week's results. It's long term, and the Sox will need more than Moncada being good to be g good team. What's good for the rebuild is as many players playing well as possible and that actually leads to wins.How did owning the Royals work for Matt Davidson?

    You just can't expect things even could go well with Detwiler on the mound. I can't wait for this rebuild to be over so you can actually root and expect to win, especially vs. crap like the Royals.

    They need to extend him while they have the chance.
  13. The broadcast always talks about other teams' run differential as being the true sign of where the team is at. They NEVER mention the Sox run differential which is 4th worse in baseball ahead of only Baltimore, Detroit, and Seattle who has played 6 or 7 more games. So if run differential really is a thing, this streak should surprise no one.

    Eloy going on IL

    There was always a school of thought that kids today focus so much on one sport, that it is what causes injuries. Way back when, a lot of kids played ,even if just for fun, the sports that were in season. I know my friends and I would play baseball in the summer, football in the fall, basketball in the winter or spring, even street or floor hockey in the winter. Using different body parts for each let some muscles develop and others to get a break. But something is going on. Players are playing less and less and getting hurt more and more. At least baseball has a 10 day injured list they can use as partial blame. NBA basketball used to be way more physical. Tons of guys averaged 38-40 minutes a night, and didn't take entire games off to rest.
