    That's a big ol' CGSO winner!

    Wasn’t Tilson a Cubs fan growing up? He is from Winnetka...

    People are panicking way too much on Madrigal. The sad reality for us is Chris Getz and his player development staff suck and that means it will always take longer for guys to figure shit out. The fact that Madrigal still has elite bat to ball skills means he’s some moderate adjustments away from being a high average hitter. That won’t make him a star but hopefully a an above average regular when you factor in plus defense and very good base running ability.

    Maybe my math was wrong, but I was accounting for HR’s and adjusting K % based on at-bats and not plate appearances.

    If you expect his BABIP to be ~.250 and he’s striking in 21% of his plate appearances, his batting average should be ~.200. He’s probably had some bad luck but not likely a ton.

    His expected batting average per Statcast is .242 and I’m assuming that doesn’t account for the shift so you’re pretty much on the money.
  10. He does seem good with the fans. That being said, it’s pretty clear he’s a total clown and a complete asshole in the locker room.

    Hopefully two fifths of our second half rotation!!

    Gotcha...I’m fine with what they did last year, but would love a couple pre bats in rounds 1 & 2 assuming Adley doesn’t fall.

    Someone would definitely pick up on the cheap if released.

    McCann Extension

    100% agree. If he wants to get paid like a non-elite, but above-average starting catcher I want to see him maintain a certain level of offense across the entire season.

    Zero reason to rush this unless he’s willing to take a dirt cheap deal.

    I keep forgetting we have three shit spots in the rotation. Yeah, might need to keep Nova around depending on Banuelos looks when he comes back.
  17. Nope, Eaton being a better player for the 2016 White Sox means jack shit and I’m glad Frazier shoved his ass into a locker for being a loud-mouth, stupid douche.

    But to get back on topic here, the Sox will need to make some major changes soon if they’re serious about competing next season. We desperately need to get a look at some of young guys and see who might be options for next year. The guys I’m most interested in seeing by July 1st are Cease, Collins, Mendick, & Lambert. And depending on where they want to use Collins, I’d probably give Palka one last shot. That means Alonso & Nova need to be DFAed. That means Rondon will need to be removed from the 40 man. If they believe Collins can stick at catcher, then Castillo needs to go at some point as well. Cease is the only one of those guys really guaranteed a spot next year. Would be great if one or two of the others showed enough ability to be able to plug holes this offseason. With the minor league system really struggling, reinforcements will primarily have to come from free agency. And while we should theoretically have a ton of money to work with, money has its limits and the more cheap solid-average guys to fill spots the better.

    Like I said, Colome should be traded if he can net a top 100 prospect. Herrera has been garbage since returning from his injury and I’m simply not ready to make a call on what he might capable of next year. Bummer has looked good, but as Fry has shown us this year, relievers are volatile as fuck. Marshall has been effective and Burr has shown some signs of promise. We might feel good heading into next season, but right now, no metric will convince me otherwise that this bullpen is littered with question marks. We need some of the higher caliber relief prospects to step up. Burdi’s command has been a disaster at AA, but it’s way too early to panic on him. Hamilton’s stats are ugly but his peripherals have been pretty good over his last ten appearances. If those guys could step up and show the potential to be lock-down relievers in the majors that would go a long way to making me feel more confident about the bullpen for next year.

    The White Sox ate $8.5M of Keppinger’s deal. I’m sure there are other examples of them eating a few million dollars here or there.

    How is the bullpen decent? Colome should be traded at the All Star break is he can command a good return and after that it’s a bunch of unknowns and question marks. We have a lot of young guys who could potentially fill roles, but right now I don’t feel certain about any of them. We desperately need Hamilton & Burdi to regain form and snag some spots.

    One of the single dumbest posts in SoxTalk history. You actually think the Sox won’t release him, but plan on either rostering him to the end and not playing him at all OR simply out of pure stubbornness to eat some money will continue play him to the point of his options becoming guaranteed and being on the hook for even more money. You can’t honestly believe this bullshit which means you’re just hating to hate.

    This is just some dumb conspiracy bullshit.

    Watch the Sox going pitching heavy in a pitching week draft simply because of organizational need.
