    Alternate Plan for a $150 Million Payroll

    This is correct, actually. My bad. Astros drafted Daz Cameron with one in 2015. They also used a Compensatory pick on LJ Hoes but it was acquired from the Orioles. They also acquired from STL and had a compensation pick under the old system in which they selected McCullers.

    The Astros also had the luxury of competitive balance picks and extra international space. The White Sox don't share those same perks. MLB thinks they are a big market club. It's time to act like it.
  3. They could benefit from being at home. I expect East to win by like 14-17. I don't think Loyola can score enough points. LWE has a ridiculous offense that everyone always talks about but their starting defense hasn't given up points since Week 2. They are pretty daunting. I hope we get East and BR in the finals.
  4. Yeah haha. It was at Brother Rice. That atmosphere was awesome but I remember parents and adults swearing at us as players. They were lined up right outside the fence. It was like nothing I'd ever seen before.
  5. I was on the Lockport team that defeated them in 2003. Worst atmosphere I ever played in.
  6. I try to do this every year to show where the White Sox picks will likely be. We'll just do the first two picks for now. Bryce Harper, Dallas Keuchel, Patrick Corbin, Craig Kimbrel, Yasmani Grandal, Hyun Jin Ryu and AJ Pollock all received the qualifying offer from their clubs. Arizona is the only team that will receive a pick after round 1 for their players. Boston and Washington would receive picks after round 3. Houston and Los Angeles would receive a pick after Competitive Balance Round B. The White Sox would forfeit their 2nd rounder and the bonus pool attached to sign any FA that received a QO. 1.

    Luis Robert tearing it up in the AFL

    Luis Robert has a .960 OPS in the AFL and is showing all of the tools that make him a potential top 20 prospect in the sport. There's no reason to complain about this. We all know he needs to stay healthy. This is him though. If he's healthy, he'll move to AA and spend majority of summer there where I expect the results to look similar.

    Baseball America Top 10 Prospects

    I think Adolfo is too low here but it's obviously your list. I like what others have said about his game. Keith Law will have Adolfo in his top 65 prospects. He thinks he's a middle of the order run producer. He just needs to stay healthy.

    Basabe can also play CF and Blake Rutherford can't. I would put it like this as of the moment. 1. Eloy Jimenez 2. Michael Kopech 3. Dylan Cease 4. Luis Robert 5. Nick Madrigal 6. Zack Collins 7. Dane Dunning 8. Micker Adolfo 9. Luis Alexander Basabe 10. Alec Hansen 11. Luis Gonzalez 12. Blake Rutherford 13. Steele Walker

    Yeah that one surprises me
  11. I disagree here. They needed to get him to 160 innings. They couldn't do that in the minors. It's unfortunate but it is what it is at this point.
  12. https://www.baseballamerica.com/teams/1026/chicago-white-sox/organizational/?year=2019 1. Eloy Jimenez 2. Michael Kopech 3. Dylan Cease 4. Nick Madrigal 5. Luis Robert 6. Micker Adolfo 7. Dane Dunning 8. Blake Rutherford 9. Luis Gonzalez 10. Steele Walker No Zack Collins, Luis Basabe or Alec Hansen on list.

    Heyman says White Sox interested in Nelson Cruz

    I did have this wrong. He hit 11 homers vs LHP and 26 vs RHP. This part is same though. Vs LHP: 153 wRC+, .389 wOBA vs RHP: 126 wRC+, .350 wOBA

    Heyman says White Sox interested in Nelson Cruz

    Did he? 137 wRC+ with 37 homers. 153 wRC+ with 30 homers against LHP. He would have been the best offensive player on the Sox last year by a lot.
  15. It's because the Athletic Directors factor into the decisions and they want the same number of home games. I've always said that they should give the higher seeds the option to go on the road in round 1. For example, LWE plays the #32 seed on the road and then gets Glenbard West at home the next week instead of the other way around. Seems like a decent solution.
