  1. This is why I think player development is a way bigger issue than an eye for talent (not saying that we couldn’t use big improvement there too). In that 2019 Fangraphs update about our prospects Kiley wrote that many of them had taken a step back and/or the future outlook isn’t as good as once hoped but he noted that he didn’t think it was because the White Sox picked the wrong guys because Kiley’s team were all in on them too.
  2. Oof. Surprised to see the Cubs so low though I guess all their hits have been picks in the top ten and those are probably the hardest to raise the FV.

    Game of Thrones

    If Tyrion and Jaime die I don't think it will be in the White Walker battle, otherwise the whole assigning Bronn to the task of killing them would be utterly pointless.

    The Anderson Saga (continued from game thread)

    Flipping/throwing your bat and yelling towards your teammates is not taunting the other team, nothing Anderson did was directed towards anyone on the Royals.

    Future White Sox Lineup #GetExcited

    https://blogs.fangraphs.com/war-update-catcher-framing/ Here was the article about it, also includes a table of who got the biggest boosts and decreases from the change. Buster Posey now has a 10 fWAR season.

    Future White Sox Lineup #GetExcited

    Fangraphs made updates this offseason to include framing in WAR FWIW.

    The Anderson Saga (continued from game thread)

    I'd want the kids to do it even more than the MLB players (and I want them to do it too). Let the kids have fun. I really don't see the problem.

    The Anderson Saga (continued from game thread)

    I asked a few people on Twitter yesterday who said that Anderson "had it coming" if it would be OK for Anderson to charge the mound if a pitcher pimped a strikeout against him and they always fail to see the double standard. Violence is OK apparently but only one way.

    4/17 Games

    .329, .282, .333 the last 3 seasons so not really.

    Sox acquire Alex Colome For Narvaez

    I actually think relievers are the one position where they’re more valuable with less control remaining due to how volatile the position is. It sounds weird but I think Colome would actually have less value if he had an additional year of control right now.

    And that’s a White Sox Winner....

    Yankees in April have had three home series against Baltimore, Detroit and the White Sox and went 3-6 in those games.

    Chris Sale

    To play devil's advocate, the Red Sox won the division by 8 games and Sale was pretty bad throughout the playoffs, you could argue that he wasn't really integral to the championship last year.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    The difference is that even with poor starts the Red Sox and Astros are still overwhelmingly likely to finish ahead of the Orioles and Mariners. The same isn't true with the Cubs and Brewers.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Early or not spotting your rivals a six game lead is a huge hole. Pretty much everyone thought these teams were pretty even in talent and even with positive regression to the mean for the Cubs they still have a huge hill to climb. Every game matters and the Cubs have already dropped their playoff odds a significant amount.
