    Race for the worst 2018 record (Top 5 pick) again

    I didn't mean to quote flavum. I messed up. I was referring to Zisk's post.

    Race for the worst 2018 record (Top 5 pick) again

    This mentality makes no sense to me. Why do you care about beating the Cubs? They aren't rivals and they're definitely going to the playoffs. Losing to the Cubs is the best thing for the long-term future of the Sox. It's mind boggling that I continue to see this sentiment.

    Great Falls post season.

    On the pitching side: Konnor Pilkington, Davis Martin and Jonathan Stiever. In the infield: Bryce Bush, Lenyn Sosa, Corey Zangari, and Amado Nunez. Steele Walker might be in the outfield to open the season.

    Rebuild phase 2: Free agent spending

    I think signing Josh Donaldson makes more sense than paying a high end reliever. The White Sox don't need to do that. They've built a pretty quality bullpen with drafts and trades. I'd roll with the young guys that they have. They can sign a veteran for down there but they don't need to spend $70-$80 million on a Kimbrel type. I also don't see them paying a high end starting pitcher. Dallas Keuchel and Patrick Corbin will cost $100 million. While I believe that the White Sox will spend more $$ in future years than we've ever seen spent, I doubt it will be spent on $100 million pitchers that don't slot in at the top of a rotation. I could see some stop gap starting pitching additions or maybe guys like Pomeranz or Eovaldi. I'm very curious to see their overall free agent approach. I think they make a run at the biggest fish. If they miss out though, I'm not sure they just start throwing money to fill gaps. They don't have the pitching to compete next year. They obviously should be better though.

    Great Falls post season.

    This is pretty cool. The Great Falls team has actual legit prospects on it. Many times in Advanced Rookie Leagues it's littered with tons of college filler and organizational types. The Voyagers have like 5 possible top 30 guys (Sosa, Bush, Nunez, Stiever, Pilkington) and some others that are advanced like Romy Gonzalez, Logan Sowers and Davis Martin. That team in Kannapolis is going to be really fun next year.

    Kiley on Dylan Cease

    Keith Law is usually a stickler for guys similar to Cease and Law has him as a top 40 prospect in baseball and definite front of the rotation type.

    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    I don't have them as a playoff team. Wing defense is incredibly important and they might have the worst perimeter defense in the entire league. They should win between 25-35 though I think.

    Eloy's Camp Unhappy: Grievance Possible

    Why would they do that though? It'd be the same thing as calling him up this season.

    Eloy Jimenez: I'm Ready (Players' Tribune)

    Completely agree. I doubt very much that we see Eloy Jimenez this season. Kopech was a different story. He'd spent longer in AAA and in order for them to get him up to 160-165 innings, he needs to pitch in the majors. Those minor league innings aren't available

    Sickels features Sox MiLB relievers

    John Sickels is out of touch and hasn't seen prospects in person in years.

    8/23 games

    They are "pushing it" because he's not injured. Struggling with command and control. He'll be in instructs most likely trying to get it ironed out. He's not though. He has a 20% walk rate in AA with a 134 wRC+. That's going down obviously but he makes fewer outs than many of the guys on that team. I know that you used the comparison because they both look at strikes but at least he walks a shitload. If people don't like Moncada's approach, they are going to hate Zack Collins

    Luis Avilan traded to Phillies for Felix Paulino

    Still not the point. I highly doubt they'd dump Cordell and Rondon BTW. They need to add 9 players for the Rule-5. This shouldn't be a problem. It doesn't mean that it makes sense to use a spot on a guy like Ian Hamilton though who doesn't need to be added in a losing season anyway. That's always been my point.

    Luis Avilan traded to Phillies for Felix Paulino

    None of us would care, no. It's a realistic issue though. It's not a video game. They aren't just going to discard guys for no reason. There's no reason to add anyone that doesn't need to be added.
