    MLB considering no crowds allowed on Opening Day?

    If you aren't sure who to trust, perhaps consider the World Health Organization

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    Didn't know Garrett Mitchell was a fellow type 1. I'll be rooting for him.

    White Sox vs Athletics: Reylo against Bassitt

    When both Gios start the year on the IL and Kopech isn't allowed to make the team out of spring training Bassitt would look pretty nice.

    FS: Jake Burger: Forgotten, but not (yet) gone

    Yeah, but it was regarding the frozen pizza he had in the oven.

    Keith Law's Top 100 for 2020

    My point is that it is absurd to say that Yolmer drives the ball compared to anyone. If you want a mid level outcome for Madrigal look to Marco Scutaro instead of Yolmer.

    Keith Law's Top 100 for 2020

    Yolmer "Drives the Ball" Sanchez had the lowest ISO among qualified hitters in baseball last season by nearly 30 points. 12 pitchers (min 50 PA) had higher ISO than Yolmer last year. It's fine if you are low on Madrigal, but obviously if he has less power than the worst power hitter in baseball his career isn't going to be anything special.

    Predict the OD Lineup

    McCann's was 132 against LHP, it's not some huge drop off. I could see Grandal getting the start just because it's opening day, but McCann is going to catch Giolito more often than not and get some starts against LHPs. There's no reason to try to push Grandal into catching more than 120ish games.

    I just felt that as the only White Sox fan that actually liked Gavin Floyd that I was honor bound to say something.

    Keith Law's Top 100 for 2020

    Gavin Floyd has more than 15 WAR by both bWAR and fWAR.

    Predict the OD Lineup

    1. Anderson 2. Moncada 3. Abreu 4. Encarnacion 5. Jimenez 6. McCann 7. Robert 8. Mendick (2B) 9. Garcia (RF) Double dip of both Giolito starting and facing a lefty gets McCann the start at catcher. Mazara sits against Duffy as well.

    Keith Law's Top 100 for 2020

    I would be totally fine with Madrigal not making the list if Evan White also didn't make the list. White is just the first baseman version of Madrigal.

    So excited for the new season

    First 30/30 season since Joc Pederson 😉

    Joc Pederson thoughts

    ZiPS doesn't and Steamer has Robert slightly ahead, but that's a playing time thing. Robert 2.9 WAR in 143 games (578 PA) with Pederson at 2.7 in 100 games (438 PA).
