    2020 Draft: Day 2 Discussion

    I'm out of the loop. What was the McDaniel rumor?

    What would it take to get Noah Syndergaard?

    I actually still like the idea of trying to add him as a FA after the 2021 season. Plus, his cost probably just came down a decent amount.

    4 since 1990 with Frank.

    KW says "no Puig"

    My first thought was that they could just be maxed out for this year. They have played this game in the past where they'll spend if the fans show up at the park. So, for right now, it's on the fans to support the product as it exists today with the thought being that the additional income will be put on the field.

    White Sox Spring Training Thread

    Anybody happen to see the post on Luis' insta of him and Micker together? Everybody already knows that Luis is built like an Under Armour mannequin but Micker is a freakin tank (he's a bit closer to the camera than Luis, but still). Hoping for a BIG breakout from both this season.

    Mlb Networks Top 10

    Tatis was #6 on the SS list and he didn't play at all in 2018 and only played half of 2019...
  7. It's been more than 4 hours and it still hasn't gone away. Should I call my doctor?

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    Does anyone have a baseballamerica account? They released their Top 100 prospects article the other day and it sounds like there was a pretty glowing write up on Robert.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    Absolutely. I just think that between the improvements that the Sox have made and the (presumed) health improvements from the Indians, the Twins should come back to earth a bit. Just for fun, I looked up the Twins projected record for 2019 and I saw win totals of anywhere from 81-87. They way outperformed their expectations last year.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    That’s an awful lot of question marks for one lineup. Don’t get me wrong, I still think the Twins will mash but when you find yourself asking whether 5 different guys can repeat last year’s historically great performances, the answer is probably no.

    Hahn is getting all the praise, Theo no longer "Sainted"

    Oh wow. A baseball thing!
  12. Saw something on twitter about EE having known Eloy since he was 14. Hopefully, that familiarity leads to a good working relationship and Eloy can pick up some launch angle tips from EE. Eloy's eye with EE's loft would be a sight to behold.
  13. Why is this still the narrative about Engel? He's an elite defender, was improved at the plate in the second half last year, and hits lefties well which is EXACTLY what people don't like about Mazara. We're not asking him to be an everyday starter, we need him to be a 4th OF.

    2020 Projection for Moncada from Brooks Baseball/Roto

    This is basically where I'm at with Madrigal. I know that HRs are sexy and have become the only thing anyone wants to see but Nick is absolutely the type of player that this team needs right now. We have several elite, explosive talents at other positions around the diamond. We could use a guy like him.

    How good do YOU think we can be next season?

    The Twins absolutely FEASTED on the Sox last year (playing the Tigers and Royals 38 times didn't hurt either). The Sox went 6-13 against the Twins last season. It's not a stretch to think that the Sox could gain 8 games on the Twins by simply starting guys that belong in the MLB.
