    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Big yikes if true. I could see that being the case if they're getting paid as they have to this point, but if they payments stop, not sure how they can in good faith tell minor leaguers they can't file for unemployment.

    But if whatever minor league affiliate (or frankly any entity, however it is structured) is their employer, and they stop paying them, what stops that guy from filing for unemployment?

    I don’t mean this in a bad way, but aren’t these guys better off on unemployment than making $400 a week? Federal subsidy alone is $600/week.
  4. Had to look. Nailed it. insert office gif. and obviously meant taxi squad not tad squad.
  5. I mean, if he’s bad you cut him. If he’s good, he makes the 30/35/40 man roster. However big the roster is, it’s going to go deep whether that is daily rosters, or a tad squad or what. But this will be a different deal than we’re used to. Lots of guys who wouldn’t otherwise be playing in the bigs are going to get shots. the comment was mostly in jest tho. How old is Alexei? If I had to take a stab without looking - listed at 38, but probably in his early 40s.

  7. I'd give him milb deal. Why not.

    That's great news, hope he's got good info.

    Nothing really. Just don’t think this is going to clear up enough anytime soon for all parties to agree on a structure that actually has a chance of being completed successfully. Hope I’m wrong. Just think things are gonna get ugly as states open back up and we’re basically gonna be right back where we were in mid March.

    Feeling less optimistic on this than I was a few days ago.

    Choose the SoxTalk Adopted KBO Quaran-team

    Am I the only one that has virtually no interest in watching KBO games? Just makes me miss White Sox baseball more.

    And how do you possibly have the information at hand to state that 24 teams won't make money without fans? Show that work.

    Show your work.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    I kind of like the World Cup style expanded playoff scenario Passan described. Obviously wouldn't be baseball as we know it, but at this point - I'd be all for it. Just give me some Sox baseball to watch!

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    I think (hope) there will be some form of a season, but if there is, I would think it needs to start by July 15. Once that date comes and goes, its going to be tough to get any meaningful season in. I am holding out hope - we should have a much better feel for things by mid May. If no real progress has been made by then, I don't like the chances of seeing a season.

    Expanded Roster Speculation

    Yah, makes sense I suppose.

    Expanded Roster Speculation

    I hadn't read that? IF MLB resumes, why wouldn't MILB? Just because they have no where to play?
  18. ChiSox59

    Expanded Roster Speculation

    I think it'll be a 30 man roster. Rotation (6): Giolito, Kuechel, Cease, Lopez, Gonzalez and Rodon (if ready; if not ready, Kopech) Pen (9): Colome, Bummer, Cishek, Cordero, Fry, Marshall, Herrera, Fulmer, and Hamilton Lineup (9): Grandal, Abreu, Madrigal, Anderson, Moncada, Eloy, Robert, Mazara and Encarnacion Bench (6): Engel, Mendick, McCann, Collins, Delmonico and Romine
  19. 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.

    Cuts

    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.
  25. This happened like....2 months ago, no? He pitched for the Sox in ST.
