    Kopech had TJS on September 18th

    I was thinking about this the other day. He did start throwing the curveball again earlier in the year. I wonder if that had something to potential cause this to fully come around. I know that pitch generally is supposed to be hard on the arm, so I wonder if he'll continue throwing it once he comes back.

    What do you expect from Rodon, Lopez and Giolito in 2019?

    Rodon 6.5 - The lack of K's really worries me, because he's always been a high strikeout guy. I'm willing to give him a pass and chalk it up to being off for so long with the injury he had at the start of the year. He really needs to step up big time and prove he can be the leader of this staff while staying healthy all year. Lopez, 6.5 - I'm pretty sure I picked Lopez to be the Sox biggest disappointment earlier in the year, so I'm pretty happy with the results he's shown this season. I think he's proving he can stick in the rotation, but near the back end. Giolito, 5.5 - I honestly don't know what to make of him yet, but it's nice to see him have moments of success after such a abysmal start. He reminds me so much of Gavin Floyd.

    The Hawk Harrelson tribute thread

    His passion for the game and the Sox was the best thing about him. When the Sox lost, he suffered that loss with you. You don't see that anymore in announcing these days.

    9/21- Cubs vs Sox, 3:10

    This would be awesome.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    Would love to see him walk a bit more before I think we can feel comfortable with him as a long term option for the contention window. He honestly reminds me a bit of pre-2018 left-handed version of Adam Duvall right now. That has value, but not as a main 3, 4, 5 spot in the lineup.

    Latest Fangraphs Prospect Rankings

    Yea, plus I think they were high on Madrigal heading into the draft as well. I remember reading he was the best pure hitter in the draft, though that may have been from other sites too. Totally disagree about Cease though.

    Moncada leading MLB in OOZ strike 3s

    Personally, I would have taken those 49 AB's and broken it up by Moncada's AVG, K% (when swinging), and BB% then added it into his slash line. There's no way all those calls would result in walks.
  9. They said at the beginning of the broadcast he had a sore hip or something.

    Kopech has a torn UCL, TJS recommended

    Thankfully there's still some voice of reason in this thread. Gonna go drink now.... a lot...

    Making the Sox the class of the minors

    This right here is a huge reason teams don't make the effort. I feel bad for the minor leaguers that struggle, but if I was in the MLB teams' shoes, I'd operate the exact same way. From a business perspective, there's too many guys that simply will not pan out to justify the cost.

    FS: Focus on Spencer Adams, with quotes

    Really would like to see him succeed. Seems like I've been following him forever. That K/9 rate though... 🤢

    Kopech Day IV- Gamethread

    Has anyone ruled out he was working on a 2-seamer? That would explain the velocity dip and movement he had on it at times. Regardless, the conditions heading into this game absolutely should be enough for everyone to chill out over him. He has had 3 games delayed to start his pro career. That has to be insanely frustrating for a competitive guy of his nature.

    Sept 1 call ups thread

    Seems like it's safe to say the writing is on the wall for Tilson. Tough break for the guy, working his way back and all from the injuries.
