    2019-2020 Official NBA Thread

    Why are people so down on LaVine that they would use him as trade bait to move up a few spots? I honestly wouldn't trade him straight up for anybody in this draft, and in all honesty, he'd probably go #1 in this draft. Also wouldn't use Lauri or Wendell to move up either. I say just stay put and pick BPA, which I could envision Ball being there. Personally, I'm on the Killian Hayes bandwagon.

    Would you add a FA starter b4 2021, and who/why?

    Agree with Lopez at this point. I think he would flourish out of the pen. The same scenario needs to be considered for Rodon as well. I'm ready to go the Andrew Miller route with him, but will he be up for something like that?

    Anyone Remember Much about the 2000 White Sox?

    Had a lot of fun watching this team, from the brawl with Detroit to the 7 game sweep of NYY & CLE, it was the first time in my White Sox fandom that they were actually good. The trade for Charles Johnson was a head scratcher at first, but damn was he AMAZING in his stint with the Sox. It really goes under the radar how good he was. I see a lot of people talking about the pitching, but lets be honest, the only way they were going to win anything was by hitting. Unfortunately, against the Mariners, they failed miserably at that and that was that. Off season brought in that idiot Wells, Clayton(unnecessary, but I do remember a ton of fans/media complaining about Valentin's errors), Alomar and it just never clicked. Started off 2001 like shit through May, but after that were solid. I hated Wells so much that one of my favorite memories of the 05' Sox WS team will forever be Iguchi hitting a grand slam off that crumb!

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    What about Springer, though? He won't demand that type of money.

    I'm not at all a huge fan of Hahn & Co. and the drafting they've done, but at the end of the day they're 2nd round picks in baseball. How many teams actually make a killing drafting in the 2nd round? Here are a few examples of some teams that everyone considers to have exceptional scouting, especially compared to the Sox: Astros Last 10 2nd Rd Picks: 2012: Nolan Fotana 2013: Andrew Thurman 2014: A.J. Reed 2015: Tom Eshelman 2016: Ronnie Dawson 2017: Joe Perez/Corbin Martin/J.J. Matijevic 2018: Jayson Shroeder 2019: Grae Kessinger Rays Last 10 2nd Rd Picks: 2013: Riley Unroe 2014: Brent Honeywell Jr./Cameron Varga 2015: Chris Betts 2016: Jake Fraley /Ryan Boldt 2017: Michael Mercado 2018: Tanner Dodson/Tyler Frank 2019: John Doxakis Twins Last 10 2nd Rd Picks: 2012: J.T. Chargois/Mason Meoltakis 2013: Ryan Eades 2014: Nick Burdi 2015: Kyle Cody 2016: Akil Baddoo/Jose Miranda/Joe Rortvedt 2017: Landon Leach 2018: Ryan Jeffers 2019: Matt Canterino A's Last 10 2nd Rd Picks: 2012: Nolan Sanburn/Bruce Maxwell 2013: Chad Pinder/Dillon Overton 2014: Daniel Gossett 2015: Mikey White 2016: Logan Shore 2017: Greg Deichmann 2018: Jeremy Eierman/Jameson Hannah 2019: Tyler Baum Dodgers Last 10 2nd Rd Picks: 2011: Alex Santana 2012: Paco Rodriguez 2013: Tom Windle 2014: Alex Verdugo 2015: Josh Sborz/Mitchell Hansen 2016: Mitchell White 2017: Morgan Cooper 2018: Michael Grove 2019: Jimmy Lewis

    State side next year? Possibly finish at low A if all goes well?

    6/30 Games

    Nah, at this point he should definitely get a look towards the end of the season or next as a backup C/DH option. He's hit everywhere in the minors.

    Regardless of the Machado/Harper outcomes, would anybody be against signing Kimbrel and creating a lights out bullpen to help the younger staff?

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    Eh, I would say Grandal would fit that more then Encarnacion seeing as how Boozer & Yasmani are both FA's with good value heading in their 30's.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    Of course, but what I'm saying is that those guys had their minds set on where they wanted to go regardless of the state of the Sox. They want the prestige AND the cash, not just the latter. The former is something the Sox cannot offer at this moment and whether you like it or not, its up to those "3 guys" to bring the franchise back to prominence.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    What more could they do though? Its clear neither one of them wanted to go anywhere else other then their intended target: Yankees & Cubs. Its not like Kenny and Rick can put a gun to their heads and force their hands.
