    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.

    Rangers might trade lefthanded hitter/outfielder

    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.

    2019 World Series

    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.

    AL Wildcard Game: Rays vs A's

    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?

    8/27 Games

    It feels like there's a small segment of the White Sox organization that's modernized and an overwhelming majority of it is stuck in 2006.

    8/27 Games

    Fegan's articles mentioning him have me hoping he replaces Coop after this season. It seems a bit dysfunctional the Sox don't have a pitching coach using the same techniques at each level of the organization.

    8/27 Games

    The Sox finally benefiting from a player making alterations to their swing would be nice. Hopefully this is the new Zack Collins.

    Adam Engel as well.

    8/27 Games

    Going to be very intriguing to see how Collins' new swing looks in September. Batting average up to .295, the K rate is very manageable, etc. He's 2-3 with a HR tonight.

    Wouldn't shock me if he's a worse Kris Davis, it also wouldn't shock me if he lowers his K% to ~20% and hits 40+ dingers with a high batting average. His minor league profile was about as strong as you could possibly want from a power hitter.

    Wish the Sox were more aggressive in their roster churn during this rebuild. Enough of Engel and Covey, specifically. We know it's never going to happen for them.

    8/27- Sox vs Twins, 7:10, NBCSC+

    He had a 13% K rate in 228 AAA PA's last season. There was every reason to expect him to come in and be a higher average, elite power, low strikeout guy from the beginning. What we've season this season is that he's a hacker who struggles to elevate the ball on anything middle or below. I'm hopeful the second part can be addressed with a swing change/alteration which is sorely needed.

    Not pressing the panic button by any means, but his strikeout rate and ground ball rate both alarming right now.

    Nelson Cruz and his 160 wRC+ would look pretty sweet in this lineup on opening day next year.
