    Happy 4th of July Soxtalk: From our Favorite Latin Baseball Reporter!

    So no pressure on the Sox developmental right?
  2. The Sox could have a strong crop of young pitchers coming up from the pipeline in the next 3-4 years, I like it.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    Late to the party here. Love the deal obviously, not because it’s a super team friendly deal, but for the reason that this guarantees he will be on the team for the next 5/6 years. For comparison, Kris Bryant made $40M in his arb years and he was ROY and MVP by year 2, and CWS noted Machado and Arenado made a bit more than $30M in their arb years. I think Yoan could make $30-35M in those years based on his current trajectory. So really we’re getting his 5th and 6th years for $55-60M. Not huge savings financially, but the deal helps keep the core together and guarantees strong production from a key position during our “window”.

    Keith Law's Top 100 for 2020

    That's how top 100 list works, ever.

    Randel Mondesi 17yr old signed

    So this counts against the 2019 pool? I don't remember us having much left so he's likely a cheap signing.
  6. More crazy than not trading him for Joc, extending him to 5+2 years that RPs don't normally get? They're obviously high on him, and if there aren't better options available he will at least get a shot.
  7. There is a good chance Bummer inherits the closer role after this year, which would make deal even better. Colome did make $23M in his arb years being a good not great closer.

    Garpax vs KenHahn

    WCJ will do a bit of everything on offense with no real weakness and will excel at rebound and defensively. Being able to switch and hold his own against most smaller players, he isn't a sexy player, but a very valuable player in the modern NBA. While he doesn't have a high ceiling, I also don't think Sexton does either. The latter, at present, is a volume scorer on one of the worst teams in the league and is a negative in every other aspect of the game. I see him as at best a present day Monta Ellis and at worst a 6th man and spark plug off the bench. I don't think Bulls by any means screwed up by taking Wendell over him. I also am not in love with any one particular advanced basketball stat, but it is telling that literally every single one of them has WCJ over Sexton, and that is with Sexton balling his ass off while Wendell is on the shelf to close the gap.

    Garpax vs KenHahn

    I am not one to defend this FO and had been advocating these clowns to be fired for too long now. It is lost cause with JR and his son in charge so I don’t even bother these days. What I don’t get is your infatuation with Sexton and constant attempt to belittle WCJ who is a fine young player. I get that in the new age NBA you need ball handlers, and shooters to build a dynamic offense. While Sexton fits the bill, he is also terribly limited in other areas and struggles defensively not being able to defend bigger guys. It’s no coincidence he’s one of the worst defensive guards in the league for the second year in a row, while on the other hand WCJ is a top 20 defensive big across several metrics. As others have pointed out, you do notice the difference defensively after WCJ went down with injury. And this isn’t Trae Young we’re talking about, while being a smaller guard could change the game in a number of ways with elite skill sets You’re a stats guy, so I trust that you have looked past his scoring numbers and looked at advanced stats - WS VORP, PER, on/off court differentials, RPM, etc. I don’t see Sexton even being close to making the impact WCJ does. I am not into getting into a debate that Wendell’s growth has been stunted by playing for a coach who has no business coaching in the NBA and who has shown no success whatsoever drawing up a game plan for his big men on offense.

    Garpax vs KenHahn

    He's digging up a very old thread to prove his point again. Which is even more odd. lol

    ESPN Lineup Ranking

    Didn't open the link. If I see Mets ranked 3rd and Yankees ranked 9th, it's not worth my time. Also they don't have a criteria for usage of advanced technology, to which Astros are clearly above the rest.

    MLB cheating scandal

    t’s interesting Altuve had much better split on the road in 2016 and 17 (his MVP year) and better home split in 18 and 19, while Bregman had much better road split since his debut in 2016, with exception of 2018. If there cheating with a buzzing device, their doing it all wrong.

    White Sox sign Andrew Romine

    I got him confused with the other Romine and thought McCann is getting traded.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    That’s what made me think he does have sources. You and FS broke the initial report but I don’t think his tweet was piggybacking off of it but rather either from a source or a random ass guess (unlikely). Judging from your last statement, it sounded like rumors were spreading among those in the privy and he is connected to one of them, making it even more likely that he does have his sources.
