    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    Then, as we’ve said many times, send him down if he cannot have consistent AB’s. I honestly believe if Eloy was in LF, we’d be having the same discussion with Vaughn and a limited amount of playing time. He might not have even made the team.

    No one can say this wasn’t predictable either.

    Wet ground excuse, clear sunny day excuse, he didn’t immediately produce at the plate excuse, the possibilities are endless

    You’re right, I didn’t see Garcia is expected to sit out too.

    It’s on Hahn as much as it is TLR. They’re purchasing contracts of AAAA players and giving their manager an opportunity to play them in place of Vaughn.

    It’s opening day too. Why not let him experience it at home for the first time? No one in that stadium is paying to see Williams in LF
  7. Such a scenario would suggest this all may end up working in our favor, and I’m skeptical we’d ever be as “fortunate” as to have that happen. We lose a season of Eloy...but perhaps gain more in the coming years with him at DH. Who knows how many years of Eloy goofs we’d have to go through before the final “enough already he’s a DH” sentiment from yesterday? Perhaps the next one would involve Robert or Moncada? I’m obviously just throwing around hypotheticals, but if we are going down the possibility of Vaughn succeeding in left field and Eloy at DH, then this all needed to happen...... (Cue Dr Strange’s million plus scenarios clip)
  8. He should be excited to be given an on-field position. I wouldn’t expect him to say as much, but before today he was sitting as the DH with the possibility of being sent down. No one expects him to make up for Eloy’s absence, but if he is anything above the worst defensive OF in MLB it will be an Improvement
  9. I agree. It’s too late, and we’re at too much of a disadvantage, to even bother trying to replace Eloy outside the organization. There will be no fair value trade with Vaughn. I just hate that it becomes a convenient excuse if he struggles. “How do you expect him to hit when he’s learning a new position!?”

    Putting things in realistic perspective.

    I agree, they’re more than one year away..... from being a championship contender. However, the expectation should be set of the White Sox making the playoffs every year now. Regardless of the playoff format, or Minnesota and Cleveland, we cannot take any steps back from here.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    I agree, they can’t count on this extended playoff format being around. There needs to be a lot of roster and personnel changes entering next season. This is not a championship team
  12. Im oddly at peace after these first two games. Unless Game 3 is a continuation of the terrible games from the last two weeks, a “good loss” like today wouldn’t be shameful. I expected a sweep coming into Oakland.

    9/27 GT: Cubs @ Sox (2:10pm)

    Next year that “happy to be here” excuse goes away. They’ll have to earn it over a (likely) 162 game season. Anything less is a disaster. 2021 is what everyone is saying right? All those other rebuild teams took the next step after an initial playoff loss right? Hahn is going to have his work cut out this offseason

    9/27 GT: Cubs @ Sox (2:10pm)

    I think that’s the truth. They weren’t pushed by RR either. He may have thought the division and seeding was in the bag. Maybe he didn’t care. But all i know is, we’ll look back at 2020 as a great step forward with the rebuild....followed by a late season collapse.

    Any other positional players we can throw out for a couple relief innings?
