  1. Yah. IDGAF if the season takes place in AZ. Just give me some White Sox baseball. That is miles and miles better than no season.

    AJ Reed retires

    There was no good reason why Yermin didn't get a September call up last year if they were just going to add him to the 40 man in the winter. That I agree with. Wasting ABs on Castillo in September was super stupid. But there was nothing wrong with rolling the dice on Reed when they did. He was a guy they had interest in for a few years, and fit a club need (left handed DH). It was unlikely to work based on his recent history, and it didn't. He sucked balls in 44 PA, and was jettisoned. The Yermin folklore among some Sox fans is something. He'll get a chance at some point, but he's likely going to be nothing more than an Astudillo that is measurably worse at catching and can't even fill in elsewhere on the field in a pinch. He's nice to have around, but I am not going out of my way to make space for a guy like that.

    AJ Reed retires

    Yermin was in AA when Reed was in the bigs. He wasn't a realistic option. If he was blocking anyone, he was blocking Collins. Also, I figured something was up with Reed. He was still in the Sox org, but didn't appear in any ST games.

    Sox option Kopech

    MLB and MLBPA came to agreement. Players will get credit for a full year of service time regardless of how many games are played, assuming some number of games actually are played. If 2020 season doesn’t happen, players will get the amount of service time they got in 2019. Absolute nightmare scenario for Sox with Kopech.

    Sounds like players will get credit for a full year of service time regardless on how many games are played. If no 2020 season, get same amount of service you got in 2019. Nightmare scenario with Kopech.
  7. This happened like....2 months ago, no? He pitched for the Sox in ST.

    If the season is lost, how will it affect players?

    I mean, consider the source. Dude just mentally preparing for the worst possible outcome, like he does with just about any Sox related topic.

    Going to be very interesting to see how this all plays out. Of course, not nearly as interesting as actually watching some damn baseball. We're less than 2 weeks into this thing and it sure doesn't seem like an end is in sight.

    I think its probably going to depend on what happens between MLB/MLBPA on the service time. There will have to be some sort of formal agreement on how this situation will play out.

    Kopech Service Time

    If they reduce the number of games and don't modify the service time clock, ya it would. I assume they'll modify the service time clock, or way too may weird instances would happen. MLBPA isn't going to let their players get fucked over by some freak virus.

    Kopech Service Time

    Yah, I mean guys that had 5.0 years of service time coming into this season....are clubs going to get an extra year of control? A lot of unanswered questions on this.
  13. Bovada is pretty garbage for MTT. Not really a cash player. I play ACR occasionally, but just prefer live by a wide margin.
  14. Not where I live. Unless you want to wait 2 months for check from Boliva that may never come.
  15. Same. Bought my PS4 when my wife (gf at the time) had to do a 6 week stint out of town. Played some Show and NHL for a few weeks....been collecting dust since. I used to play the show and nhl a decent amount against my roommates when I lived with buddies, but could never get into gaming by myself. Always found myself bored to tears 10 mins in.
