    Can Adams become an effective reliever when the time comes? From what I remember, his fastball is fairly straight and his best secondary pitch is a changeup and doesn't miss a whole lot of bats either.

    He reminds me of Rangel Ravelo as a prospect, but might develop a tad more power when it's all said and done. However there's more hope for that type of hitters these days. Good contact hitters could easily hit 15-20 HRs a year thru good use of launch angle.

    The 2 best teams to follow this year has been WS and Kanny. Early return from the 2017 draft has been very good outside of Burger and his injury. Hopefully when Eloy gets going and when Hansen returns, Bham starts cooking as well.
  4. I still have confidence in Moncada, we just need to accept he will never be a high average hitter. It's only been 3 weeks, but it's the whole team has taken a step backward, with exception of maybe ReyLo.
  5. I wish I can say I don't have a problem with this offense.

    Moncada

    Just goes to show that even if he's a .250 hitter he could still be an all star 2B.

    2018 MLB Draft

    How does Swaggerty's bat project? He seems to have some swing and miss issues by looking at stats.
  8. QUOTE (ChrisLikesBaseball @ Apr 16, 2018 -> 04:50 PM) Wrestlemania is supposed to be the end of feuds. They always fill it up with blow off matches, so of course the product feels a little flat 8 days after it. The Raw/Smackdown after Mania always feels a little hungover, they'll do some debuts and returns, but that's about it. Velveteen Dream is fine.. But his character won't translate to the main roster any better than Nak did. He's still very green, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them give him a shot. The Saudi event is the product of having fewer PPVs. It'll be a fun show, and maybe the Brock Lesnar saga will end there under less hostile conditions. I'm tired of hearing about Roman Reigns, but I'm more tired of seeing bad matches with Brock Lesnar. Tonight and tomorrow will be pretty telling. I'm looking forward to a new "season" to begin. I like this positive, rational post. I think the narrative is all but written on Reigns beating Brock at TGRR. No way they book the match again to have the golden boy lose 2 times in a row. Also, predictions for the shakeup- DB moving back to Raw, Finn and the Club going to SD tomorrow. AJ and Finn battling for the Club would make the SD storyline much more interesting.

    Former White Sox 10th best team by WAR

    If there was ever a Caufield thread, this would be it. By the way, Bartolo is a big miss, dude was a 2x white sox.

    It's good to see the OF guys are off to a good start. I just realized how scary this our infield crop is, especially in the middle of the field. What we have in the majors if all we have. Double Y may be the best infield prospect in the system right now.

    I think we will need some luck to land MPJ. 1, 2 and 3 are some combination of Ayton, Bagley and Doncic. Then you have JJJ who is a could be a special 2 way player in his own rights, and there is always a team that likes a 7 foot defensive anchor so Bamba could be considered here. I could see MPJ going anywhere from 4-6. He's the guy I want the most because his game fits today's NBA so well, but I honestly won't be disappointed with JJJ or Bamba either. I just hope we get at least the 6th pick.

    There are people who are hesitant about MPJ even at 6 because of the injury and the missed time. Reality is if he was fully healthy, he wouldn't have falling to us. Simmons missed a year of pro ball and dominated in his 2nd year. MPJ missed a year of college ball, I think he could be one of the top young players by his second season.

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Apr 13, 2018 -> 12:26 PM) Fun fact: the players used to call Uribe "Juanaconda" because he had the biggest penis on the team I'm not kidding So I wonder why "Yoanacada" isn't a thing yet

    To get some way too early draft debates going, ESPN and nbadraft.net seems to think either MPJ or Bamba will fall to our range even at 7th pick. Who’s the BPA between MPJ, Bamba, Young and WCJ? And who’s the best fit?
  15. One of the better mania in recent memories. Started off great, every match told a pretty good story with exception of maybe the tag matches. I expected the last match to be bad, but it was really bad. At least the surprise at the end made it more interesting. Back to Taker match. I don't know how anyone could be disappointed or complain about that match. It got a huge pop and the crowd was into it. It wasn't even on the card for pete's sake, so I don't know what anyone was expecting out of it. It was short and impactful, a departure of past Taker WM matches where they overdo kicking out of finishers. Taker even looked more rejuvenated and had more bounce in his steps.
