    Zach would improve our hitting more than Davidson improves our pitching.

    Top White Sox Prospects by Position: First Basemen

    Same here. If they don't draft Vaughn, they'll likely trade for another LaRoach-like first baseman after Abreu leaves. Geez.

    Sox have "flexibility" to add "long term pieces"

    White Sox will pick 3rd in 2019

    I see your point. Rodon had all the appearances of being the best pitcher in that draft, and all of a sudden he is available at #3. Rodon's agent was Scott Boros. I always wondered if Sox had a pre-draft dialogue with either Boros or Rodon. After the draft, Boros was very difficult, holding up the signing as long as possible, getting way over slot for Rodon, and then trying as hard as possible to get more, even if it would have put Sox in penalty position. So, I don't second guess drafting Rodon per se, but I do second guess drafting a client of Scott Boros with that high of a pick. I hope they don't do it again.

    Is La Roche coming out of retirement? Is that what you want?

    Right. Who cares if he is right handed first baseman. We have had Abreu, Konerko, and Big Frank for 2-3 decades. I hope we get this guy.

    FS: Season in Review, 2018 Charlotte Knights

    In Cease's last start he went only one inning and was taken out. Any significance there? Is he okay?

    What are you saying? Avoid Boros clients, which Rodon was ? Not that I disagree with that premise, just asking.

    Never mind on Kendal. He was drafted first round a year or 2 later.

    Don't remember. Jaren Kendal didn't even go in first round did he? I guess everyone liked Fulmer's herky jerky delivery. Buehler is smooth.

    Moncada hopes to stay at 2b

    Pipe dreams. Ain't gonna happen. Forgetaboutit. Maybe Moncada should lose a few pounds. Looks pretty chunky.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    Watching the playoff game between Dodgers and Rockies. Buehler pitching lights out for LA. Geez, he looks great. Could not help but notice that he was drafted in in first round by Dodgers at number 24 in 2015. Same year we picked Carson Fulmer at number 8. Both were teammates at Vanderbilt that year. How could Sox be so wrong?
  15. Nope. That was the old system.
