    Laz Rivera getting picked off 1B (immediately after being inserted as a pinch runner) isn’t exactly the best way to ingratiate himself to the WS key decision makers.

    Happy to see that the Moncada extension has been finalized (5 Years for $70 million).

    Given the volatile nature of MLB relief pitchers’ consistency (or lack thereof) from season to season, it will be interesting to see who (Ultimately) ends up closing games for the Sox as this season progresses.

    That said, A Paul Konerko World Series, bases loaded analogy is a stretch.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with ripping a first pitch (dead center) fastball with the bases loaded and nobody out in a meaningless spring training game.

    My bad... Veteran 6’2” 220 lb multi-time all-star slugger (and team captain) vs a scuffling diminutive prospect with zero MLB experience. You are absolutely correct (I was dead wrong) They are identical.

    False equivalency for $200 Alex

    I (for one) love what Madrigal brings to the White Sox. He is clearly pressing (so far) early in spring training. When all is said and done I believe he will be a solid overall contributor to the WS this season.

    Amongst his most highly touted attributes, Nick Madrigal is supposed to possess the highest rated baseball IQ (as ranked by MLB.com) amongst all current MLB prospects. Given the Situation; bases loaded with nobody out, along with the demonstrable wildness of (Rockies’ SP) Peter Lambert that inning, combined with Madrigal’s diminutive stature (Incredibly small strike zone), Little Nicky’s situational approach was head scratching. To go up to the plate first pitch hunting (given the situation) didn’t make any sense, whatsoever.

    Unfortunately, an inability to effectively locate his pitches continues to be Fulmer’s Achilles Heal.

    Without question... Given Lopez’ seemingly fragile psyche, Grandal possesses the optimal combination of; catching experience, game calling confidence, relentless opposition research/intelligence and pitch framing expertise, needed to successfully navigate Lopez through his pitching starts.

    Lopez stands to benefit as much as any White Sox starting pitcher from Grandal’s elite pitch framing talent. Over Lopez’s (initial) 3 IP this afternoon, were several close pitches that were called balls (with Collins behind the dish). I have no doubt that Grandal would have (more likely than not) stolen at least 1 or 2 of them, resulting in 1 or 2 less base runners and a lower pitch count.
