    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    MLB likely could have had expanded playoffs, a universal DH, and no grievance from the MLBPA if they were willing to go 5 extra games. I will never understand why they couldn't have met in the middle after the MLBPA's latest proposal and been done with it.

    If/when players and coaches report, I think every team will have such a large number of positive cases it'll make playing unfeasible. I hope to be wrong, but playing sports in America doesn't seem possible right now unless it's in a bubble scenario.

    Now that it's established players aren't going to cave on prorated salaries, wouldn't an agreement in the 60 game range that features expanded playoffs and a universal DH make sense?

    Moncada saying he doesn't like batting leadoff and feels most comfortable in the #2 spot would be enough for me to lock him in at 2.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    Wilson Ramos is a better catcher than McCann. Maybe that could work as a three team trade, but I don't see McCann having a ton of value to the Mets.

    Where do you find statcast info on minor leaguers??
  8. If Keuchel can hold something close to those peripherals while pitching to Grandal, this signing will be a bargain. Super encouraging to see those numbers. Hopefully we don't see a lot of James McCann or Collins catching him this season.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    The amount of surplus value teams are getting from early extensions has been ridiculous. Maybe Madrigal flops, but the odds of any extension for a prospect of his caliber going wrong is small and the financial upside of it for teams is enormous. No team in baseball has benefited from extensions more than the White Sox. It's one of the few areas in baseball they're clearly out in front of other teams on and it's something they should continue pursuing.

    Where did you find exit velocity numbers for a minor leaguer? That's really cool info.

    Having actual depth on this team would be so refreshing. EE & Cesar Hernandez would raise the floor of this team significantly without any long-term financial risk.
  12. EE also raises the floor of the lineup considerably. If Collins or another young guy pushes EE out of the lineup, cool. But the Sox shouldn't be turning their noses at reliable ~120 wRC+ guys.
  13. I'm not concerned at all about a one year dip in Keuchel's peripherals, but for his career he's essentially pitched to his "advanced stats." Career 3.67 ERA, 3.80 FIP, & 3.52 xFIP.

    Moncada Says: Bring on all 162

    Hopefully the Sox are very aggressive about pursuing an extension with Moncada. His price will only go up as he gets closer to free agency.
