  1. Very sad. That’s what happens when you only produced 1 player internationally during that period-Yolmer Sanchez and he won’t even be with the team next year. I agee with Kiley how many of our top prospects took a step backwards (Fulmer, Burdi, Rutherford, Hansen, Collins, etc) and how we can’t hit on one signing internationally other than throwing $30+ Million on Roberts. Really need to look at other top organizations at developing and stealing some of their player development talent (Astros, Dodgers, Yankees, Atlanta). On a good note I’m very happy with the improvements of Moncada and Anderson this year.

    Future White Sox Lineup #GetExcited

    These trades are so in favor of the White Sox. Pipes dream

    4/18 Games

    Relax everyone. Roberts has only played 13 games this year in A+. People are going bonkers because he hasn’t been called up to AA. At the earliest I see him getting called Mid May. It’s great that we are seeing the power being developed. We now need to work on that 3.6% BB rate. Patience friends because he’s not getting called up in 2019.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I can see Baltimore cutting a deal with Witt or Abrams. The big issue is Arizona Diamondbacks having 4 picks and $16 million to play with before they get to Baltimore’s 2nd round pick.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    Have to go hitter at #3. Too much risk drafting a pitcher that high (Injuries). Need to hit on this high draft pick and load up on the hitters even if that means we draft another OF. 1. Rutschman 2. Vaughn 3. Abrams 4. Witt 5. Bishop We have money to spend on free agents and pitchers (Cole, Wheeler, Strasburg, etc and Rendon are the strength of free agency next year

  7. Great read by Kiley McDaniel on impact and the value of investing internationally over the years. Three part series and next will show a ranking of the organizations on their performance of their signings. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/we-analyzed-the-value-of-international-signing-bonus-money/

    FS: White Sox Should Be Pleased With 3rd Pick

    Witt concerns me with how he’s always out in front of the ball. 2-3 years of video and that flaw in his mechanics hasn’t been corrected. He is going to have trouble with off speed with major league arms. Yes I know he’s almost 19 , but it’s a big flaw that needs to be fixed.

    Trade Proposal

    Good call on the Headley!!! I think San Diego received a $500,000 back so it came it out to $12.5 million. Also, more recently I forgot the Reds and Dodgers deal that was made where the Dodgers received prospects Downs and Gray in the deal. The Dodgers traded outfielders Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp, pitcher Alex Wood, and catcher Kyle Farmer to the Reds for the salary of Homer Bailey plus minor league prospects Jeter Downs and Josiah Gray. Bailey — who has battled injuries and has a 6.25 ERA over the last four seasons in just 46 total starts — won’t pitch for the Dodgers. As a condition to waive his no-trade clause, Bailey was granted his release and is now a free agent. The Dodgers owe him $23 million in 2019 plus a $5 million buyout of his 2020 option. Even in taking on Bailey’s $28 million in guaranteed money, the Dodgers from a cash standpoint saved about $7 million in this trade. From a competitive balance tax standpoint, the Dodgers’ 2019 payroll decreased by roughly $16 million.

    Trade Proposal

    Last time it occured for a prospect was with the Braves and the Diamondbacks, but that was back when idiot Dave Stewart was the GM. Braves got Touki Toussiant for Bronson Arroyo $9.5 million contract and 4.5 million buyout. Looks like it will End up working really well for the Braves.

    Trade Proposal

    That's the least of your worry. Try to trade Zimmerman, Abreu, or Alonso and eat their contracts. You might be stuck with the 3 for a couple months, but injuries will occur and people will be calling. So in the mean time rotate 1B and DH between the 3 players.

    Trade Proposal

    I would be on the phone talking with the Washington Nationals about taking Zimmerman off their hands. Nationals want to sign Kimbrel, but have no desire going over the luxury tax. Take on Ryan Zimmerman's $18 million last year of contract, Luis Garcia SS/18 years old/Top 100 Prospect and oozes tools and Israel Pineda C/18 year old high ceiling catcher who needs time to develop, but has a good chance down the road of becoming a quality starter. for Nicky Delmonico or Daniel Palka. Both players have no future and will be in the way of our prospects coming up shortly, This is the type of move Hahn needs to make when your rebuilding and have such a low salary. This will help with the White Sox goal to continue having a strong farm system that sustains when we graduate many of our prospects in Triple and Double A by adding a couple high ceiling prospects in A ball who are 2-3 away.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Sox weren't willing to go 10 years. No way they are going to be dealing with Boras trying to break Stanton's record contract. Sorry the say this, but the only way out of this mess is for Reinsdorf to keel over and to get new ownership. It's sad that are highest contract ever dished out is Abreu 6 year/$68 million. How MLB considers the Sox a big market team is a joke.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    This has nothing to do with Hahn. This falls on Reinsdorf!!!!!
