    Sox vs Indians, Monday April 12th, 7pm

    100% this for me. What they're doing to Vaughn doesn't make any sense. Maybe the plan truly is to just have him up here until the minor league season opens because some MLB games are better than the alt site. That is the only thing that makes any sense. Unless they truly just planned to DH him Mercedes just destroyed that plan. But even so, this LF situation is pathetic for a team trying to win a division. I am sort of at a loss.

    We Thought We Have A Good Bullpen?

    Lol, wow. So sorry I upset you. Not sure the personal attacks are necessary. Doesn't take much effort to see Colome had an xFIP (I just chose 1 of several obvious measures!) of 4.61 and 4.26 in his 2 seasons in a White Sox jersey, clearly exhibiting his 2.81 and 0,81 ERAs were not sustainable. Then you watch the guy, and he see he can't strike anybody out and walks a tight rope most times he pitches. Hendriks is far far far better reliever than Colome, yet here you are pining for Colome and calling out Hendriks for his poor 3 appearances. Comical stuff.

    Rodon indeed scratched. Foodies Know All.

    Start Giolito or Keuchel on full rest? Not sure why this is a big deal. Carlos can go later in the series.

    That doesn't fit his narrative tho!

    2 I agree with. To call Yermin and Eloy a wash is silly, IMO. Yes, Yermin has been very good. Way better than anyone could imagine. But over the course of the season he is not going to match Eloy's production. Eloy is a 40-50 HR hitter if he plays 150+. Also, if Eloy isn't hurt, we aren't trotting AAAA players out in LF. Vaughn is playing DH and Eloy is in LF and the lineup is way way way way better than any combo that includes Garcia, Hamilton or Williams in LF. But its spilled milk - Eloy is hurt and best case scenario is out til August. This lineup isn't the same without him - period. I don't care what Yermin does - he doesn't fill that gap and the whole lineup suffers because of it.

    Nah, he sucked last year too. His peripherals have been trash for some time. I am being flippant of course, Colome would be a fine middle reliever for $5M. But he is not someone who should be closing games for a good team.

    I am not too concerned about the pen. I still think it'll be really good. But yesterday never should have been a 1 run game. Sox should have been up 5-6 runnings by the middle innings. Their lacks of offensive execution is why the lost the game, not because Santana ran into one against Hendriks.

    Colome sucks. That's why.

    No panic at this, but this team has not played good baseball at all. Offense is anemic right now. Getting TA back helps, and hopefully Moncada snaps out of it. Not to get all Parkman, but this just isn't the same team without Eloy in the middle of the lineup.

    Contract extension for Yermin?

    Lol, cmon.

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    Or...much more likely...its a product of a small sample size and guy who makes frequent contact, and he's more like a .250 hitter. The Yermin start is awesome and I hope he keeps it up, but if he's hitting over .300 by mid-May I'd be astonished. The Sox should absolutely ride him while it lasts, but Vaughn should be in LF the days Yermin is at DH. We've been starting Billy Fucking Hamilton and Nick Fucking Williams. Not exactly pieces of the future and guys who are incredibly unlikely to be in the organization in 30-60 days.

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    Right, but a lot of the questions you asked were questions we knew the answer to prior to opening day. Yet he still made the roster. Obviously Mercedes having a monster start makes DH at bats a little harder to come by, but the Sox shouldn't be sacrificing their top prospect for Yermin. If Vaughn isn't going to play everyday, he shouldn't be on the big league roster. I think we agree on that - but I'd be pretty surprised to see Vaughn get demoted. Billy Hamilton, Nick Williams and to a lesser extent Adam Engel are not good reasons to sit Vaughn on the bench.

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    Is he on the major league roster? ? Have the Sox treated any other top prospect in the manner? Was he expected to be an OF defense contributor or provide have defensive versatility prior to the season starting? Is Mercedes the next coming of Hank Aaron? See, I can play that game too. You may be right that they send Vaughn down. Honestly, if they're not going to play him everyday, I think they should do just that. But I don't think we have anywhere near enough evidence to indicate that is their plan. It would be very "un-White Sox".

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    You seem awfully confident about this when there is really no evidence this is their plan, nor have they acted similarly with other top prospects in the recent past.
  16. ChiSox59

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    Well, he should be in the lineup at least 80-90% of the time. Not 50% or less like he has been. If he needs to be at DH, so be it. Mercedes takes a seat. Vaughn plays 3-4 days as week is a joke. I never wanted him to break camp with the Sox because 162 is always >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> than 15. But if he is on the roster, the guys needs to be in the fucking lineup. I really have a hard time believing Hahn supports this.

    That doesn't look like a graphic that can from the Sox, rather from WGN9News.

    I do. And Rick and Kenny should.

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    This Vaughn this makes zero sense. We're already like 1.5 weeks away from just getting an extra year if we just sent him to the alt site out of ST and the guy has all of 17 PA. Its an absolute fucking joke. TLR Is going to blow a year of service for like 35 PA.

    A Nick Madrigal Sized Sample

    I think it’s the defense that is getting him a short leash with (most) fans. He’s just been flat bad at 2B in the bigs and has cost us in some huge spots. Including basically losing us a playoff game. So yeah, while I personally am more than happy to keep running him out there and truly do think he’ll be fine, but the criticism is warranted.

    4-7 GT: CWS @ SEA (3:10 PM CT)

    Who should be batting cleanup then? if you say Jose, please let me see the rest of the lineup. Grandal is our best option at 4 for the time being. Much prefer him there than Moncada.

    A Nick Madrigal Sized Sample

    I think the bat will be fine. I still expect a .290+ hitter annually. He's never going to hit for power, nor will I ever expect it. But the defense has been shockingly bad. The guy just seems so tense and like he isn't have any fun. Needs to just relax and play the game.
  23. ChiSox59

    4-7 GT: CWS @ SEA (3:10 PM CT)

    Not really. Its actually exactly where he should be with Eloy out. Moncada is not a clean up hitter.

    I don't think the front office handed him an MLB deal to be cut 2 series in without an appearance.
