    2019 Minor League Rotations

    Any idea when the minor league teams set their rotation order? In order for me to see Cease pitch when I am down in Indy in April, I need him to be their #3 or #4 starter. I'm hoping they let Adams and Stephens take those top 2 spots? I don't know how much minor league teams "reward" their returning starters over the pitchers who are newly added to their roster.

    Wow, this Cal Bears closer, Sabouri, he is nasty. He made Adley look AWFUL in the 9th inning with his nasty sliders. Threw a slider that dove down at his feet and made Adley flail at it. Then struck out the last batter with another slider in the dirt to secure the save and the upset victory.

    14 HR in 21 games. He might just challenge Kris Bryant's record of 31 HR.

    Chris Sale nearing extension with Boston

    Yup. I'm crushed. I hate the Red Sox, and seeing him go in to the Hall of Fame with the Red Sox and have his White Sox years completely forgotten make me sick. At least if he went to another team and didn't win another WS, he would have still likely gone in to the HoF as a White Sox player. I'm so disappointed.

    God damnit, such a golden chance to gain some ground. Ugh.

    DNA Testing

    A guy I work with told me that his grandpa just recently did one and found out that he had a long lost brother. His grandpa never knew that his dad had a family prior to meeting his mom. So recently everyone still living all met up together at a local pizza joint owned by his long lost brother. He said it was pretty wild to see his dad meet all these new aunts and uncles and cousins who have all lived in the same area, but never knew that they had a link.

    Proximity to majors typically means a less risk of a bust. The more raw, the more risk.

    Jake Burger taking grounders

    Here are pictures of Jake Burger in college. And here are some of his accolades... - MVC Defensive Player of the Year (2016) - ABCA/Rawlings Gold Glove Award (2016) - MVC All-Defensive Team (2016) "Baseball America and the NCBWA ... Also voted as the top defensive third baseman in all of Division I baseball with his selection to the ABCA's Rawlings Gold Glove Team ... Tabbed a first-team All-MVC pick and the league's defensive player of the year" And then here's a blurb written last year about Burger before he tore his Achilles....for the 1st time. "He has a strong arm, good hands, and any talks of him moving from third base are ludicrous. I watched Jake Burger for his entire career at Missouri State — having season tickets on the third base side, with media access as well. His fielding is superb, with that rocket of an arm to go with it." If Jake Burger can't play defense at 3B anymore, it's because he tore his Achilles twice, not because he's an odd sized 3B.

    Oh god, please get rid of Bernstein. Can't stand his pompous and elitist ass.

    In fact, I'll go so far as to say Alex Call will likely never play a single game in a White Sox uniform. Doubt he even ever suits up for Birmingham or Charlotte.

    Ooof, Vaughn got a cookie 3-1 fastball and he jammed himself a bit. Managed only to fist it to LF for a flyball out. He immediately screamed FUCK and then slapped himself in the shin when he bent over at 1B to take off his shin guard. He knew he could have MURDERED that ball. He is so balanced at the plate and such a strong swing, it reminds me on Josh Donaldson at the plate. Not sure if he's gotten those comps yet, but that's just what came to my mind when I see him batting.

    Vaughn due up 3rd this inning. I just hope 1B isn't open when he comes up. EDIT: 1B was open, but the pitcher decided to peg him in the arm instead. To be fair, Vaughn does lean out pretty far and didn't even think about moving his shoulder out of the way. 2 for 2, 1B, HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB

    He's NOT a good looking guy. Good thing we got Kopech. 😉

    Pardon my own tweet, but here is video of the filthy moonshot that Vaughn just unleashed. In his previous AB, the pitcher would not even get CLOSE to throwing him a strike. Kept flipping him loopy curveballs out of the zone. In his next AB, he had 2 guys on base and 1B was not open....and this is what happens...

    Scott Boras didn't even get to hold the record for a month. Awesome.

    2019 International Review

    When you say "signed", do you mean "will sign on July 2nd, 2019" or was signed during this current period? EDIT: Despite the thread title saying 2019, I see the URL of the link says 2018-2019, so I think I just got my answer.

    The Cal Baseball twitter is trash. The kid running it doesn't seem to understand that many are following that account simply for Vaughn updates. It's not hard to tweet out what he has done in his ABs. It's 4-5 tweets per game. Hell, even a recap tweet at the end of each game about his performance would be helpful. Anyway, today he went 1/3, 2 HBP, SB, 0 BB, 0 K. His average fell to .414. He's the only one hitting over .300 in their lineup. I can't believe he gets pitched to.

    Alec Hansen

    Yeah, I would assume he starts at Winston-Salem to get his confidence back, then has a chance to go to Charlotte by the end of the year if everything works out, given his age.

    2019 Prospect Injury Hit List

    AJ Puckett, whom the Sox got for Melky Cabrera, had TJS tonight. Add him to the list. He hasn't pitched since 2017. And now it looks like he won't pitch again until maybe the end of 2020. Yikes. He was drafted 1 spot after Bo Bichette and 3 spots after Peter Alonso in the 2nd RD in 2016.

    Eloy officially got paid

    I'm hoping if 8 yrs/$100M is correct, that it's at least structured something like 5 yrs/$40M, with 3 club options at $20M per year just in case Eloy flops or has a long history of injuries, it will protect the team to cut their losses after 6 years (I think the Sox can still offer him arbitration for his 6th year) and $45-50M.
