    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    Where would you bat Grandal? I like him batting third so that can he get on base before Abreu and Eloy Robert Moncada Grandal Abreu/Eloy Eloy/Abreu

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    Pitching wants: Wheeler: High ceiling and he joins Giolito at the top of rotation. Wade Miley: Left handed, veteran, could help teach the team the Astros way of handling and developing pitching. Rich Hill/Colin McHugh: Someone who can make multi inning outings out of the pen and make the occasional spot start and be used as an opener.
  3. While we’re here, I hope the Sox don’t lose sight having coaches who excel at player development at the ML level. Yes, their window of contention is approaching but they can’t afford to lose focus on player development when teams like the Dodgers, Astros and Yankees are stressing it at every level of their organizations. I’d like to see the Sox bring some college coaches into the org.
  4. There’s an article in the Athletic about how the Sox use analytics with the pitching staff. Don Cooper and Curt Hasler are both learning how to use them and learning everything they can to understand them. It’s been posted a couple times in the past week.
  5. Yeah he was a great defensive player and I think he belongs in the HOF but that doesn’t mean he’s a great coach and teacher

    Trade Candidates: SP

    Would love for the Sox to make a deal for Ryne Stanek. I know Renteria has hesitations about the using the openers, so why not go out and get the best one?

    I wouldn’t be upset if the Sox took a stab at Gray.

    Ben Cherington Is New Pirates GM

    https://www.mlb.com/pirates/news/ben-cherington-offered-pirates-gm-job I think that the Pirates made an amazing hire, Cherington, who comes from a scouting background, knows how to build a player development machine. I wonder how he’ll operate in Pittsburgh under these kind of financial restrictions, which is something that he didn’t have to experience in Boston.

    Braves just signed Will Smith.
  12. Was hoping for someone from the college ranks but this looks like a good hire.

    A Realistic Offseason

    I know everyone is rightfully focused on improving the offense but I am really tired of seeing poor defensive baseball. Grandal would help in this area a lot, so would two new starting pitchers but hopefully the team’s defense is shored up too

    A Realistic Offseason

    How about this lineup: Robert - CF Moncada - 3B Grandal - C Abreu - 1B Eloy - LF Moustakas - DH Dickerson - RF Anderson - SS Madrigal - 2B
