    That's a big ol' CGSO winner!

    If the choice with Gio is be really effective but maybe the shoulder doesn't have a long shelf life, or just suck and the career doesn't have a long shelf life, he has made the correct decision. Hopefully he holds up.

    In my best Jon Gruden, "I'll tell you what man", Giolito seems to have fixed himself quite well. This is a shocking transformation.

    An Eloy homer and a triple play. This could be the Sox night.

    Time for some changes, Rick

    If the White Sox make trades based on those rankings, they need a new front office. The writing was on the wall for him.

    I think if they did prospect ranking daily , there is no way at the time of the trade his statement isn't accurate. He wasn't having a stellar season. It got worse, but there was a lot of talk about his lack of power.
  6. Yeah, we heard about this feud. I had no idea Jimmy Rollins got into it with Lawrie. Lawrie is one guy if I was looking for a fight, I would avoid. He seems like he could go way nuts.
  7. They both are showing their was plenty of blame to go around there. Ozzie said last night everyone hated Eaton, but Frazier certainly isn't showing much with his behavior. Let it go, it was 3 years ago, and you don't have to deal with each other every day.

    Except when he is relieving.

    Alonso has put up higher than a 1.1 fWAR one time in his career with a 2.4. Trading for him for any other reason than getting Machado considering he is being paid more than ever would be dumb. No surprise he brings little to no value, but this bad is a surprise.

    Palka time

    I don't want any of them. But you have to figure, looking at track records, which everyone who wants Palka back is trying to look at, Alonso should improve. His acquistion without Machado was embarrassing. But at this point, what do you do? He should have sat a lot of games by now. Playing him every day is insane. Now if he gets back to his typical year, he will either have to be sat not to trigger his option or be traded, and who is going to want to be stuck with his option?

    Palka time

    You don't want to believe .223/.285/.449 Palka's lifetime stats because he hit some homers in meaningless games. But believe his AAA numbers where everyone comes up big. If he were 3 or 4 years younger, I would probably agree, make room for him. But now? Who cares, Skole is putting up huge numbers. Where are the calls for him? If Alonso was playing for Charlotte and trying to get back instead of just playing out the string, his numbers would probably be enormous.

    Alcedes Escobar who hits like he is using a rolled up newspaper has an .876 OPS in Charlotte. Don't believe what you see there.

    How many wins do you expect out of this road trip?

    3-4 would be nice. They could get some confidence. Gio and Lopez are pitching pretty well. Nova usually alternates good and bad starts. Houston is great but banged up, and Minnesota isn't the house of horrors it used to be. I think they can do it.
  14. Fry warmed up 3 times before he came in including once really hard in the 4th or 5th inning. He being BP an hour later is on Ricky and Coop.
  15. I don't know what they said but taking shots when he is long gone while never saying anything but great things when he is here is a bit weasely.
