    8/8 GT - NYY @ Sox - Severino vs Giolito

    This is my retort when people are overly pessimistic about the future of the White Sox rebuild, too. But I think it would be impossible to overstate the gap in front office intelligence + player development ability of the Astros compared to the White Sox.

    8/8 GT - NYY @ Sox - Severino vs Giolito

    Entering tonight, Giolitto had a 5.51 FIP with no one on base vs a 6.44 FIP with runners on. It's a matter of varying degrees of awfulness, really.

    Race for the worst 2018 record (Top 5 pick) again

    The Sox have a 9 game road trip in September which includes 3 @ KC & 3 @ Baltimore. Dropping 5 of 6 in those two series would not surprise me at all.

    4.5 games behind Baltimore at #1. 3 games behind KC at #2. 3.5 games ahead of San Diego at #4. It's not likely, but I do think the #1 pick is in play for this season.

    Losing Culture

    Years of building up a losing culture didn't seem to prevent the Astros, Cubs, or Royals from winning when they had the talent to do so.

    Does Abreu want to be traded?

    Matt Davidson wRC+ by month March/April: 168 May: 108 June: 90 July: 126 It's not saying much, but he has pretty clearly been the best hitter on the team so far this season.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    If Hahn or KW had their jobs riding on team performance, they would have been fired long ago. Until JR no longer owns the team, this is the front office the Sox will be working with.

    6/20 Games- KOPECH NIGHT!!

    This is exactly how I feel about Lopez & Giolitto at the big league level. Process is significantly more important than results right now.

    The 2018 MLB Draft Thread (Tracker in OP)

    Bohm and Madrigal are the top two players in the draft for me. I'd be ecstatic with this outcome.

    Hopefully next year it's an even shorter wait.

    I'd be very surprised if Singer isn't the pick. It's impossible to know definitively, but I think Kiley is as plugged in on the draft as one could possibly be.

    2018 MLB Draft

    Not everyone is going to feel comfortable cheering for a pedophile. I did not root for Brett Myers (domestic abuse) to have success after the Sox traded for him in 2012. Heimlich deserves the opportunity to pursue a career in major league baseball, but I too hope it is not with the White Sox.

    5/24 Games

    Dude's going to end the night with a wRC+ in the 160 range. If anything, I don't think there's enough excitement around him right now.
  14. Winning 3 of 4 against Baltimore would have been tough for draft positioning, anyway.
  15. His fastball has lost ~8 MPH and he went from having a 70 CB or so to it being (essentially) a non existent pitch. If he has a successful career it'll either be as a finesse pitcher or reliever.
