    Abreu named AL Outstanding player

    Other players: "Jose is a great RBI guy, hits homeruns but takes a single when he needs to, nice guy" Bauer: <gives comprehensive scouting report on Jose Abreu>

    madrigal has shoulder surgery

    I realize he doesn't have much power, but I wonder if this limited him in any way?
  3. Seems like its different now based on today's events, but we'll see.
  4. Which is why you interview him and ensure your doubts are answered. Nowhere do I advocate for just giving Hinch the job.
  5. You have no idea if this is the case here.
  6. If you don't believe in second chances for people who made big mistakes I sure hope you've never done anything wrong in your life ever.

    Hinch a leading candidate for Sox mgr job

    I'm sure. If this was pre-cheating scandal I'd be incredibly pumped to turn into the Astros central. Let's just stay away from Cora and Beltran.

    Hinch a leading candidate for Sox mgr job

    I'm sure Keuchel would vouch for Hinch. Maybe that gives us a leg up on Springer too? I guess I don't know how much Hinch had to do with the cheating - if he really just let it happen and tried to turn a blind eye I'm ok with that. Sometimes you need to learn harsh lessons.

    Top SK prospect to be posted

    Any scouting reports on him? Can he stick at shortstop? He's got very good KBO numbers but nothing that says he's absolutely head and shoulders above the rest of that league.

    6-4 Astros. Teeing off on Petit.

    ALDS- A's vs Astros

    I can see why the A's didn't pitch Sean Manaea against us

    ALDS- A's vs Astros

    A's look like complete trash in this game. They looked bad in game 1 against us too, so maybe they'll rebound.

    Wendelken pulling a White Sox reliever - got 2 quick outs then gave up 3 runs.

    Offseason Targets

    Springer is more realistic than trading for Heyward. Joc can hit righties well + gets on base and Engel seems to be turning into a decent lefty-hitting side of the platoon. Other options are here: https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/free-agents/outfield/ Decent options to me are Castellanos if he opts out, Eaton, Ozuna, Brantley, Pederson, Canha, Springer, Bradley Jr.
