    Spencer Adams

    Obviously he was hurt last year, but his 108 total innings at Triple-A for his career is not a great showing. I never really understood the fascination with him. His K/9 completely evaporated and the past two seasons he has seen his walks spike. He's still pretty young, but I would be very shocked to see him have any future on the Sox.

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    I read that there could be more positional players off the board in the 1st because the pitching depth is so prominent this year. Sox might not view what's left at 11 as the highest upside.

    MLB THE SHOW: 20

    I just posted a Dalquist in the vault. Been adding and updating quite a few guys over the past week. PSN is SouthSideSox05. I have quite a few additional guys not posted yet that hopefully will be up within the next week.

    FS: Sousa and Lindgren possible 2020 bullpen options?

    Lindgren would be one hell of a great story. I remember when that guy was in the Yankees system. If he can put some solid innings together in Charlotte, I wouldn't be shocked to see him up at some point this season.

    Yermin made sure there wasn't any.

    More Minor League Additions

    I didn't know where else to put this, as there isn't a minor league catch-all yet. Feel free to move this to the other board if need be. Apparently, the Sox signed RHP Christian Friedrich and RHP Connor Sadzeck to minor league deals. Sadzeck is somewhat intriguing as a possible pen option. He was a top 30 prospect for the Rangers back in 2015-16, and throws high 90's. Has issues with walks though. Friedrich seems to be more rotation depth for Charlotte. They also brought in OF Trayvon Robinson and IF L.J. Mazzilli. Robinson has major league experience as well.

    Reinsdorf makes money off Cubs network

    I know someone that was laid off by Stadium late last year. I was told that the reason their staff was cut in half was because JR sold his controlling shares of the company. Sinclair supposedly is the majority owner of the company now. So Jerry has little to no involvement with Stadium at this point according to my friend's understanding.

    Sox in Discussions for Moncada Extension per Y2Jimmy

    Not sure if it was shin splints, thought it was his hammy, but he did say very recently he changed his conditioning regimen in the offseason to hopefully prevent issues this season. Guess we'll find out.

    Dodgers @ Sox 2PM CT ⁦NBCSChicago

    He's a ST invitee. He's in the organization unless the Sox cut ties with him and choose not to assign him to an affiliate. He should have 2 options remaining in the event he is added to the 40-man, but those don't get used as a ST invitee.

    EE is also a notoriously slow starter. His April slash line for his career is by far the worst on a month-by-month basis.

    Sox @ Reds: Spring Training Opener (Cease)

    Yep. He went to Driveline last offseason, said he felt great. Clearly didn't work last season. Although he did have a few good outings right before he hurt his hamstring last year. I don't really have any expectations for him anymore.

    Sox @ Reds: Spring Training Opener (Cease)

    I feel like he's going to bounce back in a big way this year.

    Predict the OD Lineup

    I think you nailed it. Good balance throughout.

    Sox @ Reds: Spring Training Opener (Cease)

    Mazara walks in 7.4% of his plate appearances over the course of his career. Thats double Anderson's rate.

    White Sox Spring Training Thread

    I'm fine with starting Robert lower to start the year, but Robert/Moncada at 1-2 is what I hope we see long-term. Put Madrigal in the 9 hole, and that could be explosive when the lineup turns over.

    White Sox Spring Training Thread

    Never thought I'd hear the words pitching lab used describing the White Sox. So great to hear they finally are messing with this data.

    Aaron Bummer extended 5 years/16M (plus two options)

    Sox fans gonna Sox fan I guess. Great deal for a guy who had a Britton-level sinker last year.

    KW says "no Puig"

    I don't believe the Gomez reports. This has to be a plant by Puig's camp to try and get interest out of someone. I think Puig literally has no market right now.

    KW says "no Puig"

    Good to hear that JR is still not fully 100% committed to winning.
  22. CWSpalehoseCWS

    KW says "no Puig"

    I think he is too. I think it’s far more likely the Sox name is being floated out there to try to drum up more interest.

    KW says "no Puig"

    Thanks, I was too lazy to bother looking back for that bit of info.
