    The 2018 MLB Draft Thread (Tracker in OP)

    Hopefully next year it's an even shorter wait.

    The 2018 MLB Draft Thread (Tracker in OP)

    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.
  5. Winning 3 of 4 against Baltimore would have been tough for draft positioning, anyway.
  6. 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.
  7. How many RH SP's succeed with below average velocity and spin on their fastball? I can't really blame him.

    Not sure if people either A) aren't aware of this site or B) don't enjoy it, but here's another option for MiLB box scores: https://www.mlb.com/whitesox/prospects/stats/affiliates

    Agreed. It wasn't too long ago that Rutherford's ISO was below .100. Basabe has certainly earned a promotion at this point.

    Eloy, Collins, & Seby all could end the night with wRC+'s above 160. Not too shabby considering they play half their games in Birmingham.

    Rutherford/Dunning make Passan's hot sheet list

    Rutherford's results have improved, but right now the process looks the same. Decent but not particularly good plate discipline with slap hitter results. I don't see how he becomes a productive ML hitter without making drastic improvements in his batted ball profile.
  12. Moncada currently has a 0.7 WAR edge on Abreu. Rest of season projections on FG have them essentially as equal players going forward. What do you guys think?

    4/22 Games (Covey, Adams, Flores, Henzman)

    Alec Hansen

    Given how much attention is being paid to the farm system, it'd be nice if the Sox were more forthcoming with injury developments regarding their top prospects.

    Can I Revise My Seasons Win Total Prediction?

    How early is too early for the reverse standings thread?

    QUOTE (ChiliIrishHammock24 @ Apr 16, 2018 -> 02:13 AM) I recall it being Maitan, with Albies being mentioned as well. My perception at the time was most Sox fans were hoping for a deal centered around Swanson, Benintendi, or Bregman but all 3 were supposedly untouchable.

    White Sox vs Rays 1:10 pm

    Davidson's improvement in plate discipline so far this year has been remarkable.

    QUOTE (Reddy @ Apr 10, 2018 -> 04:28 PM) Is there a single one of you that doesn't miss Hawk now? Woof. All of them. But broadcasting is very subjective.

    It'd be nice if umps would do away with the 3-0 automatic strike.

    Abreu and the Hall of Fame

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Apr 10, 2018 -> 01:50 PM) In 2014 he put up the highest OPS amongst 1b. 2015: 7th 2016: 10th 2017: 6th So far in his career, on average, he's the 6th best 1st baseman in MLB most years. Those numbers are not good enough. He's a below average defender and plays in a favorable hitters park, too. By fWAR he's ranked 2nd, 10th, 14th, and 5th. He's a very good player, but nowhere near HoF worthy.

    Moncada's current wRC+ would have finished 7th amongst 2B in the majors last season. If he continues to play at this rate he'll be worth ~3 WAR as a 23 year old in his first full season. Realistically, I don't think it would be fair to expect more than that from him this season.

    4/9 Games

    QUOTE (CWSpalehoseCWS @ Apr 9, 2018 -> 08:17 PM) Great to see him off to a hot start. Agreed, but it would be nice if his ISO was above .100.

    Would not be surprised at all if he lead the team in WAR this year.

    April 7th Game Thread: White Sox vs. Tigers

    He's not everyone's cup of tea, but I love listening to Benetti call a baseball game. His explanation of OPS+ & ERA+ and why they're important tools to evaluate players is more informative than anything Hawk has said on a broadcast in years.

    QUOTE (ChiSoxJon @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 07:55 PM) https://twitter.com/SoxMach_pnoles/status/982254003957350406 Not concerned in the slightest Similar to Machado early last year A .407 wOBA would have ranked 6th amongst qualified hitters last season. Moncada is fine. Of course, it'd be nice to see him cut his strikeout rate into the mid 20% range.
