    White Sox 2020 Draft Day discussion thread

    This used to be true, but not as much anymore. I saw some speculation that the "sore shoulder" from earlier this year was actually an off-field issue. His other injury was a comebacker to the jaw.

    Choose the SoxTalk Adopted KBO Quaran-team

    The SK Wyverns have Ricardo Pinto, who pitched in the Sox minors a couple seasons ago as a free agent.

    Spring Training to be suspended

    It's the right thing to do. It sucks incredibly hard but it's the right thing to do.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    The point being that if Grandal was injured, which isn't some far-fetched scenario, Collins would inherit most of the innings.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    I don't mind Collins getting ABs, I think he'll be a solid hitter, but him managing the pitching staff full time... not a pleasant thought. Double unpleasant for Mercedes.

    Michael Kopech

    I think it's that combined with his lack of control, or at least his history of it. He looked really good in the high minors in 2018 though, so maybe that's taken a step forward.

    Yolmer left his heart in SF

    Yeah I hope he catches on in SF. He clearly wasn't getting any offers better than the 6 mil or so the Sox would have owed him in arb. Maybe he just needs a fresh start.

    KG JR is the only one i've played extensively, definitely earned it's spot on that list.
  11. Wouldn't be shocked. It'd be an improvement over Engel, as long as its cheap.
  12. Both were successful executives who are maybe underappreciated because they were part of a now-gone era in team building where aggressive trading and spending were feasible strategies because teams valued players very differently, both from today and from each other. Now, every FO is basically the same and it's basically killed the hyper-aggressive "win now" approach in favor of hoarding as much pre-arb talent as possible.
  13. I never said anything about Williams.
  14. You said he was a hack who couldn't build sustained success. We pointed out that, in fact, he built sustained success in Detroit. Then you said he "hit some home runs" whatever that means, and that he wasn't an org builder. BTW he was GM of the Tigers from 2003-2015. All of that winning was him. Whether it was draft or trades/FA doesn't matter - he built sustained success.
  15. Keep moving those goalposts dude
