    Trust the process

    I don't trust this front office. While the trade for Sale, Quintana and Eaton seems to have been benefical the fact that the organizational leaders are the same that invested high draft picks in Fulmer, Collins, Hawkins, etc. They have not developed a hitter in years. Look at the current outfield. Has the development staff from a hitting side been upgraded, potentially but the top of the organization has shown no ability to be able to build and organization. They used to be good at cobbling teams together from time to time but whatever happened when Williams took over, way back when, all player development went down the drain.

    4/16 Games (Dunning, McClure)

    QUOTE (NorthSideSox72 @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 09:26 AM) On Zavala's defense, from what I've seen I'd put him ahead of Collins but not by much. In my viewings, in person and on MiLB TV, and talking with scouts, Zavala has a quick release and an average arm, and moves athletically from the position on defense. Handles pitchers well. But the sore spot for him was pitch blocking, which he has struggled with. He, like Collins, is bat-first still. But there's reason to believe the blocking can improve with time for Zavala. If it does and he can be MLB average at that, then he's an average overall defender there and that works just fine. Of all of things I think that would be easiest to correct it is blocking pitches.

    2018 MLB Draft

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Apr 12, 2018 -> 10:16 AM) The Sox have passed on pitchers before because of their arm action and surgery risks. Was Lucas Giolioto one of them?

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Apr 11, 2018 -> 02:38 PM) All of a sudden, Shields has a Reynaldo Lopez looking pitching line. Lopez WHIP is 0.85 for the season Shields for this game is 1.95

    QUOTE (Scoots @ Apr 11, 2018 -> 02:20 PM) It's a head game right now. And the Sox are losing at it. It's a talent game. This team has zero pressure to do anything.

    Rays @ White Sox 4/11/18 1:10 PM

    QUOTE (Harry Chappas @ Apr 11, 2018 -> 10:36 AM) He'll have 54 pitches through 5. I'm not sure what to make of this mess right now. The lack of adding any starting pitching depth is troubling I know they are not going to win often but this rotation can't be helpful to a team.

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Apr 10, 2018 -> 12:28 PM) Crazy that basically 2 games separate the 3rd seed from the potential 9 seed in the west. That damn winning streak and made free throw a couple of weeks back.

    Rays @ White Sox 4/11/18 1:10 PM

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Apr 11, 2018 -> 10:11 AM) Looks like it. In his other start, they limited him to 54 pitches. If we get deep into counts and stay patient, he could be gone in the 3rd. He'll have 54 pitches through 5.

    Tampa Bay @ Chicago GT

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Apr 9, 2018 -> 12:21 PM) Views are great and the food is wonderful. What's there not to big on? No bathroom line either. Absolute steal for opening day. Was $20 more than outfield reserve.

    It's all bulls*** and tanking means dick as long as guys want the easy path a title and form the super team. If teams are not giving away high picks then basketball hell will change over time.
