    Trust the process

    They're only ripping off the people who have no idea that they're rebuilding. This is a non-competitive season.

    Gonzalez DL; Beck up

    I'm aware which is why I said he's replacing Farquhar (hes on the 60-dal dl opening a spot). Edit: my original comment was confusing. Fixed it.

    Gonzalez DL; Beck up

    Who's on the roster for Farquhar? Beck replaces him on the 40-man, but who replaced Farquhar on the 25-man?

    Race for the worst 2018 record (Top 5 pick) again

    He will probably get traded so the draft pick won't matter, not that I believe we will sign him.

    Thompson / Saladino

    I'm cool with him platooning with Nicky in LF or playing majority of the time in CF. Engel sucks. Engel looks like he's never played baseball before when batting, very similar to a guy on my Sunday baseball league team who had never played before in his life until last year.

    Sox at Oakland 2:35 CDT: Fulmer versus Triggs

    QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 08:08 PM) ? Game length I believe.

    Sox at Oakland 2:35 CDT: Fulmer versus Triggs

    QUOTE (soxfan2014 @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 02:10 PM) Sox at +170 are so tempting to bet on... I think I'm 0-4 betting on them this year. When Sox went up 1-0 and A's had guys on, it was at +175. I threw 10 on it.

    Sox at Oakland 2:35 CDT: Fulmer versus Triggs

    QUOTE (Scoots @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 02:09 PM) Would be friggin nice to see a game like we saw on opening day. Sox at +170 are so tempting to bet on... I think I'm 0-4 betting on them this year.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    QUOTE (WBWSF @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 09:00 AM) JR has said numerous times that the franchise has always been more profitable with low payrolls/losing teams. Well this is just common f***ing sense.

    Adam Engel -- how much longer does he have as a regular?

    QUOTE (ChiSox59 @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 02:25 PM) Bummer. Nah, he's in the bullpen

    Avi ... the man nobody's discussing YET

    QUOTE (greg775 @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 12:41 PM) My favorite player, Avi, is off to a horrible start. He's 13 for 56 which is a lousy .232 batting average with 1 homer and 3 RBI and just 5 runs scored. His OBP is .254 and OPS is .594. I assume his advanced stats reek. If my memory is correct, he raked almost all last season, really having no bad slumps. I ask you to NOT say this was inevitable because of BAPIP and instead talk to a non statnik here and give me your take on Avi. I prefer to blame Ricky for inexplicably batting him second. If ever a man was NOT a prototypical No. 2 hitter it's Avi. Ricky messed with him and it is NOT WORKING. Yet Ricky has him stuck at second in the order as if it is something that has to happen. Cal Ripken used to play every day no exceptions; Avi will bat second no exceptions despite his reeking. My final question: Is Avi a victim of the Sox organization being clueless or is he just another guy who will be remembered as having one good season? Who is Avi Garcia? I'm sad cause I thought he was a star and now I'm wondering if he's merely Viciedo who tries hard. He's not really a "prototypical" middle of the order bat either with the lack of power.

    Can I Revise My Seasons Win Total Prediction?

    QUOTE (bmags @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 09:47 AM) But I do want to reiterate that this is really bad baseball and it sucks to watch and I'm frustrated. But they had a month of incredibly bad baseball last July too. Helps that they had good starts/ ends to the year. If we have a great second half nobody will care. Agreed. I might need to take a break from watching for a little while. But I do get that it's also year 2 of the rebuild and that is the part we have to understand about this season.

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 09:18 AM) I am probably one of the biggest skeptics left, and I will even flat out say the team we have seen through the beginning of this season isn't the real team. They are off to a bad start, but this team isn't THIS bad. This is not a 50 something win team. Yeah, I still think they will be low-70s.

    I remember reading comments from people that thought they would be competitive this year and thought the people who were skeptical were crazy
