    2018 White Sox draft picks and signings thread

    Maybe a problem with his physical?

    Just want a bat and not an arm with the first pick.

    2018 MLB Draft

    I personally cannot get on the Singer bandwagon. Feels too much to me like Lance Broadway. Go for the high ceiling bat.....

    Jake Burger

    Totally different players but this has me worried that we have a J. Mitchell situation, he might never be the same.

    SoxFest Updates Thread

    Any good draft “today-bits” from Hostetler about the 2017 or 2018 draft classes? He gave great insight last year as to whom he would have taken if Burdi and others had been selected.

    SoxFest First Time---What to Expect?

    QUOTE (Hamhock @ Jan 26, 2018 -> 08:13 AM) To my knowledge, there is no Friday-only pass - it's only as part of the Weekend Pass, which is reserved for hotel package buyers. Makes sense and thanks for clarification.

    SoxFest First Time---What to Expect?

    Found out that I have to be in Chicago for work tonight and was hoping to stop by Soxfesf. Anyone know of the secondary market sells passes for tonight or anyway to get a pass for tonight? Peace

    Brewers nearing trade

    I really believe that Avi will be traded because of this potential arbitration case.
  11. I recall Reinsdorf used to have the unwritten policy that if you went to arbitration you were on your way out of town. In my mind, not a good sign for Avi and Sanchez’s long term prospects.

    White Sox sign Miguel Gonzalez

    Did the White Sox get all of the PTBNL from the various trades last year?

    2018 MLB Draft

    I saw a tweet from the Athletic today that said Hostetler provided a "draft name of interest." If accurate, did anyone see this? Insight?

    Contract Tender Deadline is Friday

    QUOTE (GreenSox @ Dec 2, 2017 -> 08:49 AM) They could lose all of the unprotected guys and it wouldn't decimate them (and they can lose more than 1 in Rule 5).. But sometimes, small things can make a big difference. Just particularly concerned about pitching. We'll see what they do with the extra room. Interesting. I stand corrected then. My comments moved to then I don’t think the Sox will get decimated at the Rule 5 draft.

    Contract Tender Deadline is Friday

    QUOTE (GreenSox @ Dec 2, 2017 -> 07:53 AM) I didn't understand the 40 man roster management weeks ago, and after today's cuts, still perplexed. Re Adams, the Sox really don't need him as a bridge because they have multiple corner OF/IF try-out candidates on the roster that they have to make a decision on in the next year or so,, who need either play 1B or could be moved there and/or take some reps at DH: Davidson, Gillaspie, Palka, Cordell I have been thinking about this as well and it all come down to the fact that the White Sox can only lose one player in the Rule 5 so it is not like the team is going to be decimated. Further, they need some spots on the 40 man to field a major league team in 2018 so some flexibility was needed there as well. There has to be more free agent signings coming.........
