    How would everyone feel about a Jose Valentin comp for Moncada? I can kinda see his career going that way. I don’t see the swing and miss issues disappearing for him, but I think it’s very reasonable to think the power/hr #’s jump up as he gets older. If he stays at 2B and plays the position above average I’d be fine with it, although clearly not what we all hoped for.

    Another Bullet Dodged

    Would have preferred to take the bullett....I’d much rather be competing with the Royals for #1 overall pick than where we are right now

    Kopech has a torn UCL, TJS recommended

    Ughh...this is really disheartening. Seems like we can’t get anything positive to happen with young players in this franchise. I guess technicaly it really doesn’t change a ton in terms of overall team timeline, but still just sucks. I know the surgery has advanced a ton, but still no guarantees

    Davidson, Palka, Engel, Delmonico Please get all of these guys out of your head as regulars down the line. They are all indeed fringe MLB talent. They have had more than enough professional AB’s for anyone to realize they shouldn’t be starting players if the White Sox plan to compete for a World Series in the next 5 years. Do they each have 1 skill set that can likely keep them in the majors as bench pieces? Sure, but I really hope all fans have their sights set on acquiring much more talent in the next few years. Between the prospects already acquired and the cap space that will be available there’s just no excuse to have these types of guys in the starting lineup much longer

    8/21 - Sox vs Twins, 7:10, WGN (Kopech Debut)

    Take the makeup call...that was high

    8/20 Sox at Twins, 6:10

    Crazy that it will be 2019 and we’ll still have no idea what we have in Avi.

    8/17 Games

    1 inning for Cease and 3 for Hansen. Very disappointing night

    A Fake GM's Rebuild To-Do List

    Is Collins officially a lost cause at C that I’m not aware of? I thought most reports were saying he’s been at least adequate and improving this year?

    White Sox Vs Cleveland 8.12 game thread

    Really don’t think Covey has a chance in hell to be a big league starter to be frank. Between command and secondary pitches he has too far to go imo. Put him in the pen and let him throw that 2 seamer as hard as he can and see if he has any success. If not oh well, most rule 5 picks don’t work out.

    Palka future

    Another guy I’m just not going to get my hopes up on...if he can become a regular great, but I’m not expecting much more than pinch hitter/AAAA player

    Fulmer's New Bullpen Role

    The issue with giving Fulmer more time is that he hasn't had any kind of prolonged success at any point in his career so far. We're talking about 370 innings across pretty much every level without being able to consistently get batters out. That's kind of a problem. Moving him into the bullpen is a necessary panic move to jump start his career.

    Trade Proposals

    Wasn't he pretty good prospect for the Rangers at 1 point? Figured he'd be a decent Coop'll fix em candidate. But if you've seen him and the stuff isn't there I'll take your word for it. How about Ben Lively? Potential for a back end of the rotation arm next year?

    Trade Proposals

    Phillies could be a decent trade partner. They could use a vet starter and a bullpen piece. Shields and Soria for Jake Thompson and Roman Quinn We'd probably have to throw in some offsetting $ as well...and even then its still questionable what we'd get in return for what we have to trade. I think Jose was our only chance to get a legit prospect back and his slump probably killed that. We all have to cross our fingers Jose goes on a ridiculous tear the next 3 weeks.

    07/06 Games

    Wouldn’t hate a fulmer for a failed hitting prospect deal at this deadline. Pretty sure it won’t happen, but it’s something I’d certainly consider.

    07/06 Games

    Fulmer's issue isn't getting through the lineup the 3rd time...his issue is getting hitters out in general. Moving him to the pen isn't going to solve that issue. The biggest problem is that he has a pretty mediocre 93/94 mph fastball and he has no idea where it's going. He's 24 and needs to learn how to pitch basically. He overpowered college hitters and he's unable to do that to the highest level hitters and needs to go back to the drawing board.
