    Kopech called up

    Excited to watch him pitch in the bigs but the timing is curious. Not the move I would have made, but is what it is I suppose.

    Heyman: Eloy/Kopech may not be promoted this year

    In other news, water is wet.

    40 Man Roster Issues

    Except I doubt the Sox rid themselves of Davidson, Tilson, Engel, Smith and maybe even Danish.

    Narvaez - what’s the ceiling here?

    Lol, I made the post days ago within minutes of the pitch. Yes Narvaez was positioned inside. Yes Rodon missed his spot. Yes the umpire blew the call. Yes the catcher who ranks near the absolute bottom in pitching framing in baseball could have caught the ball better. Moving along..

    Yes I was watching the game. It was an awful display of catching.

    Still a K, but at least a better at bat. Another ball called a strike on him.

    2018 MiLB White Sox news and notes

    Did the Sox know he was going to need surgery or did this occur after the draft?

    Chuck tweeted yesterday that he is at the ST complex getting back into game shape. Rehab forthcoming.

    Basically cost Rodon at least 3 runs.

    Narvaez - what’s the ceiling here?

    Why Narvaez sucks nuts at catching.

    Rodon just threw a ball right down broadway for stike 3 against Candelario. Except Narvaez has no idea how to catch, so it was called a ball. HPB next pitch.

    He's been awful in the sense that you clearly expected a former #1 prospect to be much more dominant at this stage in his career. But I've provided you the numbers. Based on pretty much any calculation of WAR, Moncada is on pace for 1.5-2 WAR season. That is very much an everyday regular and it isn't awful or a trainwreck. You just expected him to be great right away, so being a merely an average everyday regular early in his career is horrible in your eyes. I don't care to go in circles anymore. I don't think he's been particularly good this year and I am (very) disappointed, but I am also patient. At worst, he's been an average overall player this season. Even if he never improves on his current shortcomings, he'll still have a long career in the big leagues as an average to slightly above average regular.

    Lol. You can spin the numbers however you want to fit your narrative that Moncada is a bad baseball player. Clearly providing you stats that illustrate otherwise doesn't work. We're all disappointed with his season. We all think he should be better. We all hope he will improve. But he hasn't been totally awful or a trainwreck. But continue on.
