    Cole Hamels to the Braves, 1 year $18 Million.

    It was a very bizarre interview. Reading beneath the lines, I reckon Cole and the Sox have signed or at least have a verbal agreement and the play is for Cole to go on the podcast to try and put pressure on Zach Wheeler to sign. It's all very strange indeed. I don't get why a free agent who has no connections with the Sox would go on the Sox podcast.
  2. There are lessons here in trading for 1 year rentals. We traded Semien away for Samardija in the hope he would sign. He did not sign and Semien went on to become an MVP finalist this year. Let's not make the same mistake. Also, I know it's not the same but the trade of Tatis for a short term rental of James Shields will forever haunt us.

    Japanese Slugger to be Posted?

    Ok, he can't be any worse at bat than Engel and Cordell

    He can't be any worse than Alonso and Jay.

    Rendon thread

    I honestly don't see Hahn signing Rendon. For him to do that, he would have to either put Moncada in the outfield (moving again would not be beneficial to his development) or putting him to DH and I just can't see him doing either, especially not for Rendon's cost and the other areas of need in the team. I'd be surprised to see Rendon in Sox uniform in 2020.

    White Sox Outright Charlie Tilson

    Charlie horsed. Good riddance. Many more to be cut, I hope.

    September Call Ups - Who gets the Nod?

    I just counted 13 as well and that was without even thinking. You could probably add another 6 or 7 to that list as well and that is guys like Leury and Yolmer who are good utility and bench players but will probably end up being redundant once the farm starts to produce.

    Anderson leaves game with apparent injury

    The sensible move here would be to shut him down until after the All-Star break, give him time to heal.

    The path back to .500 in our sights?

    I think the concern is more with Covey tbh. With McCann catching Lopez, he looked a lot better in his last start and he only struggled when Renteria left him in too long. Banuelos looked ok last night and you just don't know what you are getting with Nova. This team will be up and down all year I think. If we catch a team on a hot streak like Seattle and Tampa Bay earlier in the year and Minnesota last week, then there is not a lot you can do about it with the pitching. Hopefully they can make it to .500 and maybe Cease coming up or signing Keuchel can help the ailing rotation. (or a clever trade)
  10. You blame Fry for the lead off walk and giving up the double to Bauer You blame Covey who with the bases loaded (after the Sanchez error) gave up a hit to Moroff and then walks Perez. (The game was still 3-2 to the White Sox after the Sanchez error (who was at fault.) You blame Renteria for choosing to go with Colome and Herrera on Saturday (when the Sox were behind, rather than Covey) You blame Renteria for bringing in Covey to a high leverage situation instead of Jones or Burr. You absolutely feel sorry for Nova who pitched a helluva game and did not deserve what happened in the 8th.
  11. This game was lost when they pitched Colome and Herrera when the game was lost on Saturday. Renteria's bullpen management blows. Why the hell was Covey pitching in a key pressure situation? He's there to be a long reliever, not a set up man. Surely if Herrera is not ready to go, then you put out Jones or haul out Herrera for a 3rd day knowing he has a rest day on Tuesday. I get that he tried to put out Fry and Frare and they let him down but Covey was not the answer. I hope we don't see Renteria in charge when this team is ready to compete.
