    2021 Hall of Fame Ballot

    Cancel culture strikes again. Don't agree with someone's politics and you get cancelled. Schilling will never get in and its too bad. Curt just needs to put some pictures of himself wearing a Biden shirt and he will get like 95% of the vote next year. It is sad we are actually letting whether you are a Dem or Rep determine whether you get into the HOF. Lets be honest, they both kind of suck. Free Speech used to be a pretty good thing in this country. And Jeff Kent I guess wasnt flashy enough either. Didnt kiss enough reporter ass apparently. His numbers are the best ever for 2nd basemen. He has the most HRs at 2B and has more RBIs than Mickey Mantle, Vlad Guerrero, Mark Mcgwire. Kind of crazy

    Wow, only allowed 59 stolen bases. Crazy stat.
  4. Are we to believe that Rick Renteria wasnt 2 sheets to the wind most games? It is the only explanation for some of the managerial moves he made.

    Offseason Targets

    Platoon with engel in RF. Even though Engel has been frustrating he has worked hard and gotten progressively better every year offensively. If he continues his progression he is a .270 hitter with great speed and defense. For what he will cost us it is a good value. Would like to see him work on his pitch selection so he can walk more and improve the OBP.

    Fire Ricky

    I wonder what Detwiler was thinking. Guy had a great year as a solid lefty out of the bullpen only to be kicked to the curb for a always hurt, completely ineffective lefty who isnt even a reliever and has pitched barely at all the last month. Lets be honest, the only reason Rodon was on the playoff roster is because he was a top 10 pick. He did nothing to earn it this year and we didnt have the balls to leave him off the roster, and it hurt us. Detwiler could have given you 3 innings potentially.

    White Sox playoff roster

    Rather have Detwiler than Rodon on the roster. Rodon has done nothing and will most likely get injured during soft toss.

    UDFA dreamin'

    Cross Gavin Williams from ECU. He said he is going back to ECU. Came off Tommy John and only had 3 innings this year, throws 98 with a ton of upside. Seen him pitch dozens of times, can be a 1st rounder next year.
  9. I think you keep Collins at AAA and if he continues to improve then he becomes a more valuable trade piece, especially as a catcher. If he becomes so good you have a good problem on your hands. You can keep him or trade Mccann for some help. No reason to rush, its not like he tore it up yet and is some rising prospect. I think you would sell on the cheap now with minimal bargaining power since teams know we are just dumping him.

    Rebuild: Phase 3 has officially begun

    I was thinking exactly the same thing. HAHA

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Or has someone banging a trashcan behind the dugout to let him know what pitch is coming

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Its crazy to think we are arguing about possibly acquiring too many talented players that we need to get playing time. We should be embracing this as it gives our prospects time to actually be ready to be in the majors and not rushed. It makes us competitive and actually having a shot at the playoffs. And it gives us some options come the trade deadline if we need to make a final push. For the last 14 years we have been selling off scraps for the future because we were out of it. We have been playing the coveys, saladinos, tilson's every day. This is a great change. Go out and get all the talent you can get and actually attempt to play for now and not the future.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    I have learned to never count on Carlos Rodon. Maybe Giolitto has spent the offseason learning to be ambidextrous and will hold down 2 of the 5 spots. One day he is a LHP, the other a RHP. Better option than Covey. Seriously we should take a flyer on a fizzled prospect who was just in a bad situation. Jeff Hoffman for instance. Was going to be the #1 pick until TJ surgery at end of Jr year in college. Comes back and goes fairly quick through the minors and gets traded to the Rockies. Awful for any pitcher. He is up and down so many times he needs a change. He would be up 2 or so starts, then sent down, then in the bullpen, then back down. I know he was not happy the way he was handled and would love to get out of there. He would cost next to nothing. He can hit 98, has some control issues but the raw talent is there, just needs to learn how to pitch. Could be an Arrietta type.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Castellanos who many on here love was a .6 WAR through his 24 year old season. Calhoun had 25 ABs in the majors through his 24 year old season. Ozuna 5.8 WAR through his 24 year old season. 4.4 of that was in 1 year at the age of 23. His 24 year old season was .5 WAR, worse than Mazara's Mazara is 1.8 WAR through his 24 year old season. It is pretty reasonable to think that Mazara will improve on that number. I like the trade because you didn't give up much at all. Steele Walker is not going to be any better than a 4th outfielder most likely. He is doing OK at 1 year younger than Mazara and he was still a few years away. He is not that big so he wont have big power either. Now the Sox still need to make some moves for a SP and RPs. If they don't then this trade doesn't matter anyway.
