    GT Chicago vs Chicago, 6/19/19, 7:05 CT

    Was just going to say the same thing. Jay is on the 60-day, so someone is going to have to be DFA. Not sure there's anyone they can transfer for that long of a period. Maybe Burr?

    2019 MiLB catch all thread

    Sox apparently have picked up OF Jacob Scavuzzo. He was released by the Padres at the beginning of June. Never heard of the guy, but appears to have decent power.

    Right field - what to do the rest of the year?

    He is, but he's been hurt for over a month. No clue what's wrong with him.

    Let's talk Eloy hitting cleanup

    Personally, I'd like to see this right now: 2. Moncada 3. Jimenez 4. Abreu 5. McCann

    Trade for Clint Frazier?

    I don't think the Sox have anything the Yankees would want. I'd be shocked if they move him for anything other than a MLB caliber starter.

    Trade for Clint Frazier?

    Frazier apparently did not report to SWB yesterday. He has until tonight to do so but he’s clearly taking his sweet ass time getting there. Also read he unfollowed a lot of Yankees IG accounts. Pretty apparent he’s trying to send a message to the Yankees.

    GT Chicago v Chicago, 6/18/19, 7:05 CT

    What are chances Eloy belts out a "Hi Cubs!!!" in the postgame interview? HAHAHA

    GRate to get Netting to the Foul Poles

    C'mon, you know I'm referring to these type of catches:

    GRate to get Netting to the Foul Poles

    I have a feeling in a few years we'll end up seeing this.

    GRate to get Netting to the Foul Poles

    Effectively Wild podcast recently debated this and the best argument they could come up with against the netting is that it will impact the player-fan interaction that MLB already struggles with. We aren't going to get to see any of those great into-the-stands diving catches anymore, and it will be harder for kids to interact with players before games. That is a shame to some degree.

    Collins getting called up

    Gonna be hard for him with Hamels and Lester expected to start. I'd be surprised if we see him starting either game against the Cubs lefties.

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    He’s been pretty dominate this year, so I don’t think he’s at the bottom, but the Sox need to ask themselves is it worth acquiring another Ryan Cordell-type player due to the amount of arms available? All the bullpen arms we thought would be the foundation have had issues. Fry regressed, Burdi has not returned to form, Burr, Hamilton, and Johnson are hurt. Vieira and Ruiz are wildly inconsistent. I think Colome has more value at the present to the Sox than other teams. You only move him if you get an overpay, which I think is unlikely.

    Collins getting called up

    I believe he said something along the lines that Collins OBP is due to him not swinging, and not necessarily his ability to identify balls and strikes. I’m not sure how true this is, but maybe someone who has actually seen Collins consistently can weigh in how much of this is true. I don’t think Collins will have a 20% walk rate in the majors, but I can’t imagine it’s going to fall off a cliff.

    Collins getting called up

    I think you're absolutely right. Alonso will be cut when the time comes. Collins is going to be one of those C/1B/DH hybrid players similar to how the Astros used Evan Gattis, which I'm perfectly fine with. I'm curious to see how he holds up against MLB pitching. He's not the worst thing to bury in the 7th or 8th spot in a lineup, and can't be any worse than Alonso's sorry ass. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see him hit a HR in his first game. Seems like the type of guy where that power stroke could be noticeable immediately.

    Sox vs Yankees - 6/15 6:10pm

    Wonder is this is Cease related?

    Jordan Stephens Claimed by CLE

    He's had a rough go of things at the AAA level. Seems like a middle relief option if he can ever figure out how to keep the ball in the park.

    Sox vs Nats - 6/11/19 7:10pm

    Agreed. Really hope he hits the ground running.
  18. I know that's an incredibly stupid reason to keep a guy rostered, but I can't see the Sox cutting ties with him until his event is over. https://www.mlb.com/whitesox/charities/support/basebowl-tournament

    Despaigne called up; Delmonico released; Fry to IL

    Is it common for teams to DFA hurt players? I honestly can’t think of any team ever doing that. I feel like the MLBPA would be all over them if they did that to Delmonico.
  20. CWSpalehoseCWS

    Despaigne called up; Delmonico released; Fry to IL

    Guess that means Delmonico or Adolfo to the 60 day? They'll need to clear a spot.
  21. I tend to believe we'd see Jirschele over Vizquel, but the way they keep moving Vizquel with the glut of prospects seems like a hint of the future direction of the manager position. I just can't seem to see how Ricky is replaced. JR and his undying loyalty reaches levels of ridiculousness one can't comprehend.

    Sox Claim Jimmy Cordero

    Can't say I know much about this guy, seems like he can't hit the side of a barn though.

    The MVP Machine

    I was debating getting this. I listen to Effectively Wild podcast, so I've heard plenty about it. I wonder if the Sox were one of the teams willing to share some insight or one of the ones that refused to speak.
  24. CWSpalehoseCWS


    Sanchez belongs on the bench, there isn't a reason he should be starting at this point. Madrigal needs to force his way onto the roster. Get a guy that will help the club win and not break the bank, and if/when Madrigal is ready, you can always move him to a contender. Gennett is going to need to re-establish his value, so why not for the Sox?
  25. CWSpalehoseCWS


    I would love the Sox target Gennett for 2B next year. All on board with him being an under-the-radar type get next offseason similar to what the Twins did with Schoop.
