    9/22/2019 White Sox v. Tigers

    And people thought I was nuts for suggesting a Lopez for Musgrove swap...Musgrove isn’t great but he’s more reliable than Lopez at this point in their careers and if they plan to compete next year they need more reliable arms.

    Yolmer contemplates not being on the Sox

    Yolmer is trash but has been a better value (by far) this year than Machado ($4M per fWAR vs $12M per fWAR). What does that make Machado then? Because it’s definitely not a “star”.

    Yolmer Sanchez: 255/324/326 - 1.2 fWAR Manny Machado: 251/330/453 - 2.5 fWAR This season, Yolmer is Manny minus the homers.

    Well, it certainly earned guys like Heyward and Machado a ton of money.

    Machado do-over

    Mookie Betts aligns with the Sox anticipated contention window much better than Harper or Machado ever did.

    Machado do-over

    I’m not sure why you’re so focused on improving 2b/3b. Quite frankly, that’s the least of this team’s concerns and the infield overall is its biggest strength. Address the pitching, RF, and DH and then we can talk about 2b/3b.

    Machado do-over

    Would he still be the pinnacle of our team if his defense was substandard at 2b? He was awful there last year and has been rock solid at 3b. Maybe he would have taken a big leap at 2b as well but we don’t know that. What we do know is that he’s been great at 3b and is likely a better all around 3b than Machado moving forward. Nick Madrigal doesn’t need to “slug” if he’s getting on base at a 350+ clip with terrific defense and baserunning.

    Machado do-over

    Moncada has been great at 3b. Even @greg775’s old eye test will tell you that. Why people are still wanting (theoretically) to move Moncada back to 2b or OF is beyond me.

    Wouldn’t be the first and won’t be the last.

    Machado do-over

    This season, Machado has been Yolmer Sanchez with homers. Scary thought.

    Machado do-over

    Even if Yoan posted a 900 OPS at 2b, if his defense still sucked as much as it did during his first 1.5 seasons, he wouldn’t be worth more than what he’s doing at 3b this season.

    Machado do-over

    Yoan sucked defensively at 2b but has been a stud at 3b this year. Why does everyone assume he would be more valuable at 2b?

    Machado do-over

    106 wRC+, 2.6 fWAR with 10 games to go. I’m sure the Padres hope he’s much better next season...

    9/18 Sox@Twins

    He’s showing signs of settling in. He has a 1.171 OPS over his last 4 games. Trending in the right direction.
