    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.
  8. Winning 3 of 4 against Baltimore would have been tough for draft positioning, anyway.
  9. 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.
  10. How many RH SP's succeed with below average velocity and spin on their fastball? I can't really blame him.

    05/08 Games

    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

    05/08 Games

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

    05/08 Games

    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.
  15. 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)

    https://www.mlb.com/whitesox/prospects/stats/affiliates In case anyone prefers MLB Farm instead.

    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?

    Moncada

    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.

    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

    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.
