    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I do kinda remember this one though 5 years $16 million. But to be honest, had to Google it for the dollar amount. Was thinking it was 12 million. But I also forgot all about it until today.

    Thanks Jack. I just googled it. I really don't know how I missed that. So at least 5 yrs $70 million with an option that could take that to $90 million. Very good contract. Like it.

    We extended Robert this offseason. I didn't know about Moncada. There were early talks about extending Moncada back in February but was put on hold when they closed spring training.

    Right. He has been doing this for 2 years. There are large Hispanic communities and barbers in nwi. I have a friend who uses his same barber in Sherrilville or Dyer? Forget which one.

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    I'm kinda confused in the 60 man roster and how some of the organizations think differently with it. For example hardly any top prospects are included on the 60 man for the Orioles. Same with the Red Sox. In fact, Baseball America points this out and says the Red Sox are constructing their 60 man with contention in mind this year? Have they seen the Red Sox starting rotation? Anyways, I guess I don't understand all the new rules for the 60 man roster. And why do some orgs include top prospects and others don't? Is there an advantage?

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    So who are the 44 at GRF July 3rd? Surely it's not the 40 man roster + 4? There were alot more then that at Glendale. This will be the team. A 30 man roster and then 14 on the taxi squad -- at least for 2 weeks then 28 and 16 and finish at 26 and 18. My guess, at least to start, would be this: Catcher 1 Grandal 2 McCann 3 Collins 4 Mercedes Infield 5 Abrue 6 Madrigal 7 Anderson 8 Moncada 9 Garcia 10 Mendick 11 EE Outfield 12 Eloy 13 Robert 14 Mazarra 15 Engel SP 16 Giolito 17 Keuchel 18 Lopez 19 Rodon 20 Kopech 21 Cease 22 Gonzalez RP 23 Colome 24 Bummer 25 Herrera 26 Fry 27 Cordero 28 Marshall 29 Heuer 30 Fulmer 31 Hamilton 32 Burdi 33 Ruiz 34 Foster 38 Cishek Others 35 Dunning 36 Lambert 37 Crochet 39 Delmonico 40 Romine 41 Mejia Really I think Vaughn is not a part of this yet. Hasn't had enough ab's. What do you think? Others? Who am I missing to get to 44?

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    That's the problem. There are no minors this season.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    The way I understand it the league is expecting positive cases with about every team when they test next week.

    You said it! And I will try to watch every minute of every game. Hopefully never taking it for granted

    Do you think we can remove the poll question too that's at the beginning of every thread that you open?

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    One question I have, is it the same rules with the 40 man roster in what happens when a player is out of options and is sent to the taxi squad? Is he dfa'd? Like Carson Fulmer I believe is out of options? The whitesox 40 man is full.

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    Well I guess we need to test our young team. Nothing like setting the bar high.
