    Sox @ Astros 5/23 Gamethread

    Agree. He has been terrific.

    Moncada

    Probably not based on current stats. White Sox won't have a huge vote and there are 4-5 other 3rd basemen w better overall years.

    Moncada

    I would hope he is much better than Holt. Holt is an average hitter w below average power, average runner and average glove who can play inf and some outfield. A real utility guy. Holt is Leury. I hope Madrigal is a major step up.

    Time for some changes, Rick

    My guess is that the Cubs will hold off till closer to the deadline. Relievers are so up and down that teams needing help tend to wait as long as they can. Now Colome has been pretty consistent both last year and so far this season so he may not be as erratic as some.

    Sox and Stros 7:10 Central

    No walks and 13 SO is awful.
  6. The Rain Gods are on our side. Don't complain.

    Palka time

    I agree that they are better passing on Keuchel. But I don't think there will be a quality logjam with the rotation. Better than this year but still 1-2 weak spots until 2021.
  8. I realize you want Christmas in July but you may have to wait. Madrigal is hitting .260+ in Class A. Not sure that is Major League Ready. That is why I think he needs to do well in A the next couple of months and then hopefully get a solid month in AA so maybe next year he starts in AAA. Some players go up straight from AA but most need time in AAA. Maybe Robert is the exception but lets see how he is doing in July. We already have a portion of our fan-base trashing Eloy's defense. Maybe more time in the minors would never have helped him learn the outfield. But it is gonna be pretty tough for him to learn the OF or even first base in the majors. Hopefully the FO makes smart decisions on the appropriate time to bring the next wave up.
  9. Again, why risk rushing players to play for a lousy team when they can get more instruction( hopefully)j in the minors. If any of Robert, Cease or Madrigal is having sustained success at AAA, then that is when you bring them up. Maybe Cease by end of July may make sense if he is doing well in order to give him a chance to pitch some meaningful games before rosters expand. I just hope Madrigal makes it to AA this season and Robert to AAA.
  10. Yes it rounded to 12.
  11. Agree. Kimbrel was a big part of their success last year But the luxury tax is why they didn't resign him when he wanted the $!00Mil deal. Rumors now have him down to what he made last year $13Mil per. Not sure what that is if prorated Red Sox paid $12 Mil luxury last year. But it is estimated they will profit by 25 Mil by their making the playoffs last year. This year will be harder as the Rays and Yankees are both contenders. Pencil pushers may make the call more than baseball people.
  12. I doubt this year. The penalty of a draft pick expires soon, at which point both will probably sign. Atlanta seems to be rumored w both but I can see the Yankees going after Keuchel. Twins are an interesting rumor for Kimbrel. I am amazed Boston has not changed their mind. Their bullpen is blah.

    I really miss this.

    AVI had a very solid 2017 but the was hurt again last year. Maybe the Tampa weather or the artificial turf have rejuvenated his career. I figured they would DH him especially w the carpet but he is playing mostly RF. He is only 28 so good for him.

    Abreu trade value?

    I think Hahn considers him as part of the rebuild General manager Rick Hahn may have had his strongest take on Abreu’s future as a Sox when he appeared on MLB Network Tuesday morning. Asked about the 32-year-old two-time All-Star first baseman’s future with the club after his six-year contract expires at the end of the season, Hahn talked up Abreu’s value on the field and in the clubhouse — as he always does. “He’s been here throughout the early stages of this rebuild and certainly very likely he’ll be here in the more enjoyable stages that lie ahead of us,” Hahn said. Hahn has been consistent saying talks of a new deal would likely occur after the season.

    Rodon TJS

    I think he was a major part. Once Sale and Q were traded, he was the premier LH rotation piece.
