    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    Sox should really be open to selecting best prospect available regardless of position. An advanced college arm likely appeals because he could get to the majors quickly, but the organization may want to resist the urge to select quick impact over a better long term prospect. The best organizations scout and draft well year in and year out.
  2. I think Sox feel good about rolling the dice on Mazara for 2020 in RF. A change of scenery might really benefit him, and he can bat in the 7/8/9 hole with less pressure. Castellanos just does not seem like a fit, especially after inking Encarnacion to DH. If the Sox add they should look to a guy like Gennett/Dozier/Iglesias.

    Ozuna signs w/ Atlanta

    I'd be on board for a one year deal for Castellanos, but I do not see it happening after the Mazara trade.

    Badler Day - our 2020 Intl Review

    I know we signed Yolbert Sanchez who was touted from the 2018 class, but 2019 seemed fairly disappointing in terms of international signings. I realize we got a few guys, but hopefully we can nab some top 30 talents in the 2020 class.
  5. I think many teams around the league feel the same way. They would happily roll the dice on Castellanos for one season, but totally do not want to commit to such a poor defensive outfielder long term. How much do teams buy in to his outstanding two month stretch with the Cubs vs. the player he has been before? A one year deal might make sense for him because a good season would likely help him get a multi year deal next offseason, especially if he shows improved defense. As of right now I do not see him landing with the Sox

    MLB Pipeline Prospects

    Vaughn's ranking is because he was heavily scouted and one of the best college hitters period. I would not put too much stock into his 2019 performance and would look for him to mash in 2020.

    Any rumors on who the Sox might be targeting in 2020?

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    Truth^ Sox had a tremendous offseason and will be relevant in 2020, even if the playoffs are not necessarily likely. We have a huge influx of young talent that is big league ready and more depth than we have had in years. Sox were wise to limit much of the spending to one year deals, providing us flexibility in free agency next offseason.

    White Sox future outlook thread

    That is pretty fair considering the Sox have yet to prove themselves on the field yet. We really need our younger players to take the next step forward to help drive the rebuild. The Twins and Indians will still be formidable this year, but we have done a solid job of removing black holes from our lineup

    Would you extend Nick Madrigal? For how much?

    There is no reason to approach Madrigal about an extension right now. Let him spend the first month in AAA to prove himself and then call him up in May sometime. That right there gives the Sox nearly seven seasons of contractual control, and his lack of power likely holds him back from ever being a player we should be overly concerned about losing down the line.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Unless he puts up an enormous 2019 season likely starting in AA I think it would be tough for him to crack top 100 prospect lists. He does not field per scouting reports all that well, but his arm is plenty good for an outfield corner. That places tons of pressure on his bat to play though. So far injuries have help him back from breaking out, but there certainly is remaining potential there. There's development to be further tapped into, lets hope he can prove that

    In our system? Or in the entire MLB?

    Will Harris to Nats

    Going three years for a 35 year old middle reliever is playing with fire. The fall off could happen at anytime, especially with bullpen pitchers. Sox likely had a two year offer on the table, but were unwilling to go to three years for Harris.
