    7/15 Intrasquad Game Live Thread

    Agreed. He needs to learn not to do that. All it takes is one ass like Machado to step on his hand and then you have problems.

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    Holding a spot for Ross Detwiler or Ryan Cordell or Matt Skole in meaningless September games over a guy who has hit at every level of the minors? Yermin may turn out to be a big nothing burger, but I don't see what was gained by waiting until now to find out.

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    I'm glad to see they're giving him reps and moving him around to see what he can and can't do. For the life of me, I'll never understand why they didn't do this at the end of last season.
  4. 15 teams play their spring training games in Florida. Where will they play? At least a few teams (chw/lad) share facilities. Do all of these facilities have lighting appropriate for playing nighttime professional baseball games? I think we are a long way from publicly-attended games of any kind. People *may* start to return to work and stores later this summer, but I think having events with 20-50k people is much further away than most think.

    White Sox Spring Training Thread

    If he can locate his offspeed stuff like this there will likely be a lot fewer 500' hrs off his fastball this year.

    KW says "no Puig"

    That included the MM Friends and Family premium.

    KW says "no Puig"

    The Athletic report debunks the Rockies portion of the rumor, why should I believe that the White Sox portion of the rumor has any credibility now?

    I blame Rick Hahn.

    Fwiw, 2/22 is LAA instead of LAD.

    Mlb might be changing playoff format

    Next up is a home run derby to settle games that go more than 10 innings. Hey, it works for the NHL.

    Great listen. Going to be very easy to root for this guy.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    No worries. I didn't take it as an attack at me. I just thought it came across as kind of arrogant. It's all good. Thanks for addressing it.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    I didn't say he wasn't good, he's clearly good. He's just not elite according to the numbers. And by the way, you have quite the ego. Anyone who doesn't agree with you doesn't know baseball, huh?

    JOOC, how does one distinguish between "hangover effect" and "he's actually not that good" away from Coors?

    I think you mean Engel.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Also interesting are his 2019 wRC+ splits against RHP: Home: 123 Away: 77 If only we could find a way to sit the man on the road against RHP.

    Sox in on MadBum

    I know it's still a few years away, but the price to extend Mr. Giolito just keeps on rising.

    What about Collins?

    After the curious addition of Yermin to the 40-man, the Sox are now carrying five catchers. It seems like something has to give. Either McCann or Collins is on the block or Seby is about to get DFA'd. Mercedes has little trade value.
