  1. I wouldn't call watching baseball not enjoyable. I hope they pull it off, and will enjoy an escape from reality to watch the games while they're bing played. Chances are 9/10 dudes who test positive will be totally fine in mere days, and I don't see what these guys are doing much if any more dangerous than me having to go to work each day. That being said, based on what has happened with the Marlins, I would be shocked if several teams don't have similar outbreaks. When it becomes a trend, I am not sure how MLB can continue on. 60 man rosters won't be enough, though I suppose guys on COVID IL don't count towards 40 man.
  2. Because punting a year of control for 5 games is very short sighted. Sox are 1-2 with Madrigal and 1-2 without him. Sox aren’t the only team in baseball making these types of decisions, and if anything, with the extensions they’ve been more aggressive than most.

    Rick Renteria covid negative

    Glad RR is ok. Putting aside health, would prefer just about anyone else managing this ball club.

    White Sox 30 Man Roster Announced

    Hmmm. Not much fat on the 40 man. Seby could go. Detwiler obviously, but its not him with him making roster. Only other guys would be Burdi, Dunning flores, Adolo, Hamilton, Basabe, Foster, Rutherford, and Ruiz. Not really in a hurry to cut any of those guys. Headscratcher keeping Detwiler and Cuthburt around if its going to cost as an interesting young guy.

    Predict the White Sox 30 man opening roster

    I fully expect you’re wrong. And the Sox are making the right call getting the extra year when it’s like 5 games. Mazara “injury” does open the door a tad tho.

    Did the Sox just pass on their bottom of the 9th?

    Mazara starting season on IL?

    My guy Derek Dietrich was recently released. I’d give him a call.

    Where is Jake Burger?

    I thought we heard he'd be back in game action by June 1. Any updates?

    Yeah, I don't see Madrigal on the team until August 1 or so.

    Trade Activity

    I suspect you'll see a lot of impending FA on the teams that get off to bad starts moving around. The returns will be negligible though. Probably mainly fringe 40/60 man pieces as the return.

    JR worried about 2021 season

    There won't be a lockout after this season.

    JR worried about 2021 season

    Maybe he shouldn't have needlessly handed Jose Abreu $18M in 2021. Kidding..... Sort of....

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    He is not. But he could, theoretically, get added at a later date.

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    A little surprised no Thompson or Dalquist on the taxi squad. Also no Palka, so the rumors about his days being done with the Sox all but confirmed. Is a guy like Palka still owned by the sox, or can he sign with someone else? Really sucks if he's basically stuck in an org that has no plans to use him.

    Kopech sitting out 2020 - files for divorce

    If the wife is pregnant, are we 100% sure he doesn’t get service time? I know some of the early proposals had guys accruing service time if wives had pre existing medical conditions. Does pregnancy count? Not sure if that was changed in final agreement.

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    Watch Garfien's next tweet for Exhibit A why Yermin can't play 3B.

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    IIRC, the reports of Yermin's ability to actually play 3B at the AAA were not very kind. Yes, he can stand over there. Yes, he can probably make 8/10 routine plays. No he is not an everyday option at 3B. He would make Miguel Sano look like a gold glover.

    Vaughn working at 3B in practices

    As is Jose. Like he always does every ST. I wouldn't read too much into it.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I know I quoted you, but it was more of a general comment. People around here tend to downplay what Madrigal brings to the table. Just let him go out there and play ball and hold down 2B for the foreseeable future. He's going to be a good one, and like I said, an awesome fit on this roster. Vaughn is going to play 1B for the Sox and is incredibly unlikely to play an inning in the big leagues in 2020. I have no issues with him taking reps at other positions in ST (much like Jose always takes reps at 3B in ST), but our IF in pretty locked down for the next 5 years outside of 1B.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    Madrigal is literally the perfect complementary piece on this roster. He does EXACTLY the things the Sox have lacked for years. Let's stop trying to replace him or trade him or upgrade from him. Just let him go out there and play gold glove defense, hit .290-.310 and be towards the top of the league in putting the ball in play the next 6-7 seasons.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    Yeah, I missed that the Sox already optioned him back in March. My misunderstanding.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    Upon further review, yes they did. Good catch.
  24. ChiSox59

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I'd option him in a heartbeat. Just not sure the Sox will.
