    Fangraphs and Luis Robert

    The silliest thing to me is that his speed grade hasn't budged at all either. He had the fastest sprint speed in the AFL and in the Futures Game and he can't even get bumped to a 70. That's just ignoring empirical data for no reason. It's absurd to me.

    Machado do-over

    The issue here isn't just whether or not Machado is worth $300 million (I believe he is), but what is wasting Giolito's and Moncada's breakthrough seasons worth? What is giving a plausible reason to keep Luis Robert down in the minors for the entirety of this season worth? What is shrinking the window for when your core will be in the majors at the same time together worth? All of these things can be mitigated by spending this off season, but I sure don't have faith in this front office/ownership right now. And for another matter, what is not pissing off your fanbase worth? I know attendance is up, but I haven't gone to a game this year and I don't plan to either. I don't go to a ton of games, but usually at least 5 per year. If the Sox signed one of Machado or Harper I would have gone to at least that many this season.

    Bailey saw he didn't make the Future Sox top 30 and figured he show you bastards.

    Guess it was an oblique, but still I was closer lol.

    Walker had an abdominal strain in college, not a hand injury as far I as know.

  8. Castro is 22 and still in the DSL so he's probably not a real piece. Jarneski is 19 in the AZL and has pretty good numbers aside from a lot of walks.

    Luis Robert

    If Luis Robert wanted to play in the majors so badly he should have had the players association negotiate a better deal in November of 2016 several months before he signed with the White Sox. That's just bad business on his part.

    2019 Trade Deadline Predictions

    The reason I'd want to make a Thor for Kopech trade is because I have no faith that the White Sox will go out and sign a top of the rotation starter like @Tony properly states is necessary. However, the main reason I'd want to not do the trade is because I don't have faith that the White Sox would competently fill the rest of the roster out to fully compete starting next year. Basically the White Sox have broken me and that's why default on anything that isn't trading Colome is just to hold off.

    My bad, would be nice if the box score differentiated between the two at all lol.
