    Rangers might trade lefthanded hitter/outfielder

    I didn't realize there were only 3 options in all of baseball for the RF spot next season. You've got me there.

    Mazara has been a full-time player for 4 seasons and is yet to be a league average hitter or surpass 1 WAR in any of them. The point you made is true, but it doesn't change the fact he wouldn't be a solution to anything for the White Sox.

    Bunting with Greinke on the mound is one of the worst strategic moves imaginable. yikes.

    Trading for Roberto Osuna and everything about how the Astros handled the Taubman debacle makes them as unlikable as any team I can ever remember.

    Badler 2020 J2 Preview

    The Sox are such a player development factory they don't need to spend on J2 players anyway. The draft (which is a non issue now, obviously) & international free agency are where teams receive the largest returns on their investment. You'd think an owner that's as cheap as Reinsdorf would rather spend there than significantly more $ on mediocrity at the big league level.

    As is Strasburg. He's having one of the best postseasons of all-time. Couldn't be more excited for Game 7.

    Adam Eaton is and was a significantly better baseball player than most White Sox fans & media give him credit for.

    ALDS- Twins/Yankees

    Signing Nelson Cruz away from the Twins wouldn't be a bad idea.
  11. It isn't just plate discipline, but someone like Eloy could use a swing alteration. He is an extreme oppo/groundball hitter and the success he had as a hitter came in spite of that. I do think there are hitting coaches out there that could help Sox hitters tap into whatever their most efficient swing and approach at the plate is. I don't think it's coincidental players went to Robert Van Scoyoc (now the Dodgers hitting coach, was previously a hitting guru that worked with players like JD Martinez, Josh Donaldson, and Mookie Betts) and they saw drastic improvements in their performance afterwards.

    AL Wildcard Game: Rays vs A's

    I know he isn't everyone's cup of tea, but Benetti is crushing it on the statcast broadcast. I feel very lucky to have him broadcasting Sox games & hopefully he doesn't get scooed up by ESPN or TBS as their full-time national guy.

    AL Wildcard Game: Rays vs A's

    I listened to an interview with Susan Slusser (A's beat writer) and she talked about the A's building Semien's defensive skills from the bottom up. They retaught him how to play the position. It was a pretty brutal indictment of the Sox player development staff.

    Does anyone think the Sox could have helped Semien develop into a 7.5 WAR player?

    It's That Time Of The Year Again...

    I'm not sure how the new qualifying offer rules work. If the Sox sign a free agent that received a QO would they lose their pick because it's outside of the top 10?
