    Avi ... the man nobody's discussing YET

    QUOTE (greg775 @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 03:38 PM) He's 8 for 41 which is .195. 10 RBI in 12 games is good. Five homers is good. However ... he had 3 of the homers and 5 of the RBI in one game. Yikes. 2 HRs and 5 RBI in the last 11 games. Remember I am not a statnik. I like the walks obviously and I still worship Davidson, but ... disappointment is creeping in because of my fan eyetest. I'm glad I'm not controlled by advanced stats. His first season he has 26 HRS and 68 RBI in 443 at bats. Before advanced stats that was rookie of the year contention, baby. You are unbelievable.

    Can I Revise My Seasons Win Total Prediction?

    It's gonna get better, and worse, and better, and worse, and better, and worse before we get where we really want to be.
  4. QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Apr 15, 2018 -> 09:38 PM) So, apparently so far this year Tommy Kahnle has been an utter disaster with an ERA close to 9. His fastball is down 3 mph and the Yanks are worried. Always Trade Relievers™

    MLB's Biggest Problem...

    QUOTE (ChiSox1917 @ Apr 15, 2018 -> 02:48 PM) The problem is that the league is far past due for expansion. It's now been 20 years now since the last expansion team, and it really should be about every 10-15 years that two teams should be added. Bring back the Expos, and then add one to three more expansion teams and you'll see a reversal of that trend. Expansion hurts pitching more than it does hitting statistics. ...which incentivizes specialization, which leads to more relievers.

    Juan, 2B

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Apr 13, 2018 -> 10:43 AM) This is like someone posted this when Uribe was playing, their computer went down, and as soon as it got rebooted all this time later, it finally posted. Holy s*** this IS Juan Uribe.

    Juan, 2B

    QUOTE (insiderinfo @ Apr 13, 2018 -> 11:27 AM) I really don't like him at second base. It's been messing up his swing so much. His trip to the minor leagues hleped, but I think he should go back to hitting right handed only. He was more patient and saw more pitches. He is an under rated shortstop with a cannon for an arm. Why did Ventura moved him to 2b? Does he think Ozzie didn't know is a a good shortstop? He strikes out way too much now. Tony thinks he is gonna come around and start peppering the ball all over the field. I don't think he will every be the same until he goes back to swinging right handed and plays shortstop. Are these the best boards for sox talk? I cna't find the boards on the whitesox website no more. By "Juan," do you mean Yoan Moncada? What is the connection between playing second base and not swinging well?

    Daryl Boston/Josh Donaldson whistle

    If Boston blew the "good defense" whistle while Donaldson was AB just because he knew Donaldson hated it, there's no way I can possibly be mad at Donaldson for doing that lol.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    QUOTE (greg775 @ Apr 1, 2018 -> 09:32 PM) I'm a Sox fan so I go along with what the team wants to do. The difference is I issue blame where I see it. And Shields was the wrong veteran pitcher to add. Why? He stinks IMO, advanced stats be darned. Good lord, how did the idea that advanced stats LIKED James Shields somehow enter into your head?

    Any interest in Y.Tomas after he clears waivers?

    Hoping he ends up in Japan. For us, no -- he's never had a good season, and there isn't much reason to believe he will. If we were still tearing down and the money was right, I'd be on board, but I'd rather give ABs to our current guys at this point.
