    That’s about as nailed as a nail gets nailed.

    Trust the process

    It’s just baseball. The FO has not personally wronged any of us. It’s a business and I think they are doing the right thing to make that business a bunch of money in the coming years. If you don’t think our FO is full of competitive MFers, you crazy. I still think Avi will heat up with the weather and we know Abreu will. It’ll get more fun this year. I promise.

    Oh man this is great! Kinda sad I no longer have to accidentally click on people’s profiles and look like a creep.

    Avi ... the man nobody's discussing YET

    Let’s wait until the end of May. Stats are pretty meaningless in this atrocious weather. Too many days off.

    4/16 Games (Dunning, McClure)

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Apr 16, 2018 -> 02:30 PM) http://www.milb.com/scoreboard/index.jsp?s...mp;ymd=20180416 Is the WS game not working for anybody else with mild.tv? I can watch Charlotte but I want to watch me some Dunning. Thanks for any help.

    Does anybody know why you can’t watch the Barons on MiLBtv? All the other teams work. And Adolfo looks like the best player on the field.

    2018 Cubs catch-all thread

    QUOTE (Chi Town Sox @ Apr 11, 2018 -> 10:25 AM) Agreed. 2-3 years ago was the first time we had seen some of these prospects and the allure was enticing. Just like any prospect, we are seeing what they truly are a couple of years later. Good power but there's a LOT of swing and miss in that lineup. Yea it’s possible that Russell, Baez, Schwarber, Almora and Happ arent’t major league players. Contreras seems legit.

    Hot Takes after 10 Full Games

    The walks in general are very surprising. This month might end up being a write off due to the weather. I don’t think anybody is able to consistently play their game at 40 degrees. Hard to get a read.

    The Chicago Ballpark That Never Was

    I disagree that it’s boring. I think the flat black and green makes it look like Gotham City. This is Batman’s park. This is a man’s man’s park. I think it’s Badass.

    QUOTE (maxjusttyped @ Apr 9, 2018 -> 08:57 PM) Moncada's current wRC+ would have finished 7th amongst 2B in the majors last season. If he continues to play at this rate he'll be worth ~3 WAR as a 23 year old in his first full season. Realistically, I don't think it would be fair to expect more than that from him this season. I agree with all of this. I think his overall game makes him have a really high floor, which is often overlooked. I think this is the very reason we traded Sale for him, high floor and super high ceiling. You can see him easily popping off 1 WAR in a hot week where his tools are flashing. 3 WAR would be a great year for his age, but I think his tools automatically puts him at a 4 WAR floor, probably even this year.

    FS: Team Preview - 2018 Winston-Salem Dash

    QUOTE (kwolf68 @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 10:16 AM) I suspect it's more than likely a few of these guys won't be in WS the entire year. Yea Eloy and Polo should move on from bham quickly you would think.

    Should the Sox attempt to extend some of their talent?

    QUOTE (bmags @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 09:45 AM) For players like Sanchez/Garcia, at the moment I'm not that worried about an adventure on the market for them. I think when they are FAs we will have a better idea what demand for their positions we have (is Sanchez a starter or a super sub? Is Garcia an all star or just a fine RFer?) and knowledge about where we need to spend our money. I think we could easily end up in a situation with Garcia that players like Moustakas saw, they get lighter market than expecting, and decide to take more certainty with the previous team. I agree but with Avi it’ll be a way different story than Moose if he’s competing for batting titles.
