    How to Handle Kopech in 2020

    If stupid parents and youth coaches would quit letting their kids pitch all summer we would have players that didn't have arms destroyed so young in their career. I run a PT and OT clinic in a outpatient hospital. These kids go year round now and its abuse. But that summer travel ball championship is important.

    Anderson leaves game with apparent injury

    Palka is doing very well at AAA with a good OBP. Watched Mendick struggle at the plate when I saw him this week but he made some ridiculous plays at 2nd base defensively. He had 3 or 4 over the 2 day series. Kid can play some defense. Your other options are Escobar and Goins who are both hitting well at Charlotte.

    Jacob Scavuzza

    I saw where the sox signed him after being released by the Padres. He was with charlotte and saw him play monday and tuesday. He is still young at 25 and hits a ton of HRs but seems to strike out a lot and not walk. He has 14 hrs this year already, had 26 last year. If he could only learn to not strike out so much he has a powerful swing.

    Favorite Personal White Sox Player Interaction

    I will second Tyler Flowers. My son who was 10 at the time and I flew to chicago to catch 2 games. They had a extra inning game and Flowers was the last guy to leave. He saw my son at the fence leaving the parking lot in his car. He motioned to go to the end of the barricade and meet him there. He pulled over his car, opened the door and signed for 2 little kids. He looked beat but he still took the time to talk to them for a minute. Also, that same trip Alexei Ramirez was pulling out in his ferrari or something, saw my son with his sign for him, stopped his car and motioned for the attendant to bring him the ball. Opened up his window and pointed to the sign with a big smile. Adam Laroche stopped also. Eaton and Abreu and Melky flew right on by. The best in the minors was Carson Fulmer, he was great, spoke for a few minutes and took a few pictures. Also, this week it was Thyago Vierra who was so personable.

    Sox sign Hector Santiago

    Went to see the Knights play the Bulls last night and today for a father son trip. Met a lot of players, had a great time but we lost both. However, Santiago looked very good today. Went I think 5 innings with 1 run and only let up a 3hits. He was 91-94 the whole time and had good control with 1 walk and 7 k's. Looked a lot better than the garbage we roll out now at the major league level. Detwiler threw on Monday but was pulled after 2, didnt look very good out there honestly. He would be more garbage.

    Yankees vs White Sox Father's Day Gamethread

    Never thought I would say this but.. I can't wait for Dylan covey to come back. It's that bad
  8. I took a look at Cease's stats and he is just not ready. Its not like he is dominating AAA right now. The way people on the board talk about him you would think he is pitching like Giolito down there. Plust my son and I are catching 2 games in Durham in 2 weeks and we really want to see him.
  9. His build reminds me of Mike Trout and his powerful compact swing is reminiscent of Trout. 6-0 215lbs vs Trout 6-2 235lbs. Obviously he doesn't have the speed and defense but offensively he reminds me of him. Lets hope he is half the player.
  10. We can also add in the Chris Davis comparison, the guy who started out the year 0-40 or something close to that. At this point Yonder has a 1 point lead in batting average .172 to .171. He is .2 ahead of him in WAR at -.5 to -.7 Yonder has 1 more HR 6-5, and 6 more RBIs but has 25% more at bats. Yonder is historically bad.

    3/23 Sox - Dodgers

    Albeit a small sample size Yoan is striking out about the same as his career averages all through the minors. However, his walks were way up as was his average. Again, not sure if it will carry over but 11 walks and 45 ABs is good compared to ST 2 years ago with 3 walks, 39ABs. Historically he has been 1 walk to every 6-8ABs so if that improves you have a much higher OBP which will lead to more runs and he has speed on the basepaths to have his SBs go up to 25-30,
  12. There you go thinking the Sox wont screw up a first round draft pick. I have no faith in our drafting whether its top 5 or #20.
  13. I say the sox sign Adam Jones, Keuchel and Kimbrel and see what happens. They are never going to shell out for a major star. You would have a great bullpen, decent starters and a young offense. Sign Jones for 1 year, keuchel for 2 or 3 and same with Kimbrel. You still dont have a huge payroll, in the low 100 millions and you could trade some guys off later to cut payroll. It bridges the gap for the younger guys to develop and come up when ready and you can be competitive in a weak division. Its not like we need to save 30million per year for a Trout type player because we will never sign them.

    What is the ceiling for Manny Banuelos?

    Michael Jordan, a noted white sox fan was asked about what Manny's ceiling was and he offered his thoughts.

    Sox Sign Chris Johnson to MiLB Deal

    Not sure how 1600 all purpose yards and 12 touchdowns is a trash year. Maybe when compared to the greatest RB all purpose year ever, But he was still a top 5 fantasy back that year. And avoiding contact was pretty smart, he stayed healthy for 7 straight years and didn't miss a game.
