    zack collins

    Collins is a legit mlb catcher. Great eye and can obviously call a game. His power to center and left center is excellent. The more he plays the better he’ll get.

    Addressing the OF shortage (Robert Injury Spinoff)

    Hayward is a disaster. Cant believe anyone would want this guy.

    Congrats to Nate Jones/Carson Fulmer, back in big leagues

    Hahn is always infatuated with a player that looks really athletic. How many times has he spoken about how great Robert’s looks and comparing him to an nfl wide receiver in body type. a pudgy guy like yermin comes along and Hahn can’t fathom how a guy that looks like that could be a successful athlete. Hahn doesn’t have a clue

    Sox @ Cleveland

    Back-in their minor league days roberts and nick were 1-2 in the order and it worked great. Roberts is a beast early in the order

    Lynn to IL; Burdi up

    Birdies would be a top reliever on a lot of teams. He has good stuff but needs to get a little better control and he’ll be on the team. He didn’t hurt himself today

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    Playing EE and mazurka every game last year shows RR is a complete idiot. Not a partial idiot but a complete idiot.

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    Mercedes is really not a late bloomer. He’s been hitting for years. He just doesn’t have Luis roberts body type and to a guy like Hahn that works against Mercedes. Hahn has wasted more money on DHs and received brutal production from his DH signings than any other team in the history of baseball. That’s why when it appeared that he was being slighted by JR by JR hiring TLR I was fine with the hiring. Hahn hadn’t done much to deserve to be the lone voice in hiring a manager.

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    Why do people keep bringing up someone playing 3rd base? One of the best players in baseball plays there there for the Sox now.

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    After all these years of Hahn spending hundreds of millions of dollars on failed DHs that a 28 year old rookie who has been just hitting every year and just waiting for Hahn to open his eyes comes up and continues his hitting exploits. Pretty ironic.
  12. If manfred makes a decision on something the opposite side of the decision is probably the most well thought out side.

    4-1 GT: CWS @ LAA (9:05 PM CT)

    Madrigal usually gives a competitive AB but making a throwing error late in the like he did was unbelievable. It was maybe a 15 foot throw. That cost the game right there. He did stuff like that last year. I’m still not sure how a guy injures a shoulder on a feet first slide like he did last year. He’s an odd player who should be given a season to see if he can have success but there are plenty of second basemen out there that can make every play on D and spray the ball around the field.

    White Sox were expected to sign Juan Soto

    JR has made a lot of money? When was the last time you saw a Brinks truck in a funeral procession?

    White Sox were expected to sign Juan Soto

    Wouldn’t surprise me if that was the case. Reinsdorf has found his sweet spot in signing these Cubans for cheap ( except for Robert) rather than spent 100m + on an established player. ive never concurred with the reinsdorf is cheap stuff but am starting to lean that way. I don’t understand, especially at his age where is the let’s really load up and go for it mindset is. It seems like it’s always let’s do something pretty good every ten years and hope luck is on our side. his legacy is going to be terrible when he passes. Michael Jordan and his greatness will be the only thing that saves him from being a buffoon and even that may not do it.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    So a couple of things: It’s not like eloys replacement is going to hit .00000. vaughn couldn’t not provide better Defence than Eloy so that’s a plus. Vaughn might hit almost as well as Eloy but I would take eloys first year of production from Vaughn . So overall a plus. this gets Collins in the mix as DH a lot. It’s time to give him a shot . Even if he’s mediocre that’s still better than EE and Larouche and Dunn and the other disasters that Hahn has brought in. Hahn will finally have a DH by default and that guy can also be the back up catcher . Plus there candidly I like Eloy but him running into nets and walls is stupid. If I remember he also got injured in a team celebration and missed part of last years playoffs. These things might have been a little humorous early on but now it could possibly cost the Sox.

    Colas is coming

    Listened to a Sox podcast with Collins. He talked about how he has changed over the years and how learning to be a polished catcher is a long process. He also discussed how he is more aggressive early in the count than he used to be but how he has the eye to still not swing at a ball. it was an interesting listen for sure. I think he’s ready.

    3/16 vs Padres, 3:10

    Never quite sure why people here are so quick to give up on guys like Collins. He’s adjusted to every level and done well. Ricky did a terrible job not using Collins last year as he continued to trot EE out there every game. That’s stupidity right there and likely was one of the reasons he was fired. That and having Mazara out there every game. That’s stupid
