    May 23rd Game Thread: White Sox @ Arizona

    QUOTE (Lip Man 1 @ May 23, 2017 -> 11:05 PM) Covey is actually getting worse if that's possible. ERA back up over eight now. Sox now saying Covey has an oblique injury... (nudge, nudge, wink, wink SAY no more...) Who knows if it's real or if the Sox have finally decided, 'we've got to get this guy off the mound and out of the rotation because he's flat out brutal...' As a rule 5 they have to keep him on the roster. If it is real, he'll be the 6th Sox pitcher on the DL. Time for a Lawrie-esque DL stint

    Nationals acquire Doolittle/Madson from As

    No more pitchers in these deals we need to be insisting on positional prospects. Underwhelming return if true hold out for a team that will give you a high ceiling A ball prospect like Kieboom/Soto.

    May 22nd Game Thread: ChiSox @Arizona D-backs

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ May 22, 2017 -> 09:31 PM) Who's going to play SS for the White Sox if it's NOT Anderson? Saladino's really the only one qualified, he can't hit and he can't even stay healthy. Moncada's a 2B first and 3b, second. Leury Garcia??? Yolmer Sanchez doesn't have the arm. I guess Robert/Anderson/Harper would be pretty good, though... Get Torres for Quintana

    Luis Robert signing official

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ May 22, 2017 -> 10:13 AM) Chuck Garfien said it's pronounced like "Robert" in David Robertson, but others are saying "Ro-bare", so I still don't know how it's supposed to be pronounced. Why are other people pronouncing it like he's a Frenchman?

    What to do with Todd

    QUOTE (SoxAce @ May 21, 2017 -> 03:20 PM) Red Sox are scouting him. Looking at their prospects I'll take Michael Chavis for Frazier. Blocked by Devers and Dalbec anyway so he won't have much value to them but he's a decent prospect. Dalbec has kind of had a down year so maybe they would rather move him. Like Dalbec's power potential at 3B. I'd take either player.

    White Sox @ Angels 9:07 CT

    QUOTE (fathom @ May 17, 2017 -> 11:37 PM) I just haven't seen him do anything special in-game. I think he does a great job relating and motivating the players, but Hawk saying he's one of Reinsdorf's best moves ever seems like a very premature statement He just looks good because of how bad Ventura was.

    The Yolmer-Moncada Predicament

    QUOTE (CaliSoxFanViaSWside @ May 17, 2017 -> 08:02 AM) Or.....branding young players as failures, utility players or AAAA players because they don't find success right away at the highest level is silly? Yes it is a hot streak or maybe it's a breakout . I understand the need to analyze or tap the scout in all of us but it isn't very astute to say what you see is what you got forever. Exhibit A: 2016 Tyler Saladino vs 2017 Tyler Saladino

    David Robertson

    And Robertson promptly damages his trade value. Hahn you gotta know what prospects you want ahead of time and strike while the iron is hot. Not wait for Robertson to hit a rough patch.

    The Yolmer-Moncada Predicament

    Sanchez is a utility player was a AAAA type player until his hot streak. Ride him until he goes cold then it's Delmonico time.

    QUOTE (soxfan2014 @ May 16, 2017 -> 10:10 AM) Shoulda picked Trout vs. Pelfrey. That seems like a no-brainer. Yeah Pelfrey is a gas can can't wait till the young guys come up.

    David Robertson

    QUOTE (yesterday333 @ May 16, 2017 -> 09:29 AM) Do you even need to include Frazier in that? If we gave them 2 good bullpen arms I think 2 A+ players isn't too much to ask. Normally no but he's a sweetener to make the deal happen I don't think he has a future here with his recent performance anymore. Way too inconsistent a bat to stick at 1B. He's just a rental for them he has some value as a guy who can play 1B/3B and is a vet and good clubhouse guy for a playoff run. Those A+ players are top 100 prospects fyi or at least borderline - and also really young still with room to improve.

    Updated teams interested in Q

    QUOTE (shipps @ May 16, 2017 -> 02:26 PM) So let me get this straight. Everyone wants the Cubs three best prospects in return and are a no on Schwarber? We could sign a guy like him who only has value with the bat in FA once the rest of the team is put together. No sense in paying a premium to acquire someone like that.

    David Robertson

    QUOTE (fathom @ May 15, 2017 -> 08:32 PM) No way you get both unfortunately Not even for Swarzak, Robertson, and Frazier?

    Updated teams interested in Q

    I always thought the Yankees would be the ones to move for Q anyway. Looks like they are ready to compete he makes a whole lot of sense for them.

    Beat the Streak Fantasy

    Other interesting strategy at 51 would've been to go with the same player every time in specific matchups (like Trout). And have the MLB tell the player you'd be picking them the last 6 times. Probably would've given them extra motivation to be the guy that won them the streak. And in that scenario its likely they'd actually try to alter their approach to get hits (be swinging in hitters counts instead of taking trying to walk, etc)

    Beat the Streak Fantasy

    Should've gone with my strategy. He had the entire season to make 6 more picks. No reason to double down with middling hitters from the same team as if the season was ending in a few more days.

    Beat the Streak Fantasy

    QUOTE (turnin' two @ May 15, 2017 -> 01:46 PM) Hahah, this really sounds like some sour grapes going on. Have you ever played the game and/or calculated the mathematical odds of winning? Just curious. The game is already orders of magnitude harder than winning a mega millions or powerball jackpot. On top of it he mistakenly started two players who could've ended his streak with one pinch hit out (they were both NL players) which would only increase the collective odds of making the streak. Calculate the odds on top of those two players with 35-40% chance of getting one AB in that game and 75% chance of making an out if 1 ab

    Beat the Streak Fantasy

    QUOTE (winninguglyin83 @ May 14, 2017 -> 05:05 PM) Wonder if he has used his mulligan. And I also wonder if the word will start getting to the player he selects before games simply because of the publicity involved. There would have to be a monstrous buzz if he makes it to 55. Pressure on the MLB player, too. You can only use your mulligan on a streak that ends between 10 and 15. If you get a consecutive streak above 15 without using your mulligan yet you can't take a mulligan if your streak ended at 17 for example.

    Asche optioned to AAA

    QUOTE (winninguglyin83 @ May 14, 2017 -> 05:02 PM) Purke or Fulmer will be my guess. Fulmer to rotation and Covey to bullpen?

    David Robertson

    QUOTE (BlackSox13 @ May 14, 2017 -> 04:31 PM) Because he's only 23 and already playing at AAA to go along with his defense, framing and game calling. Yes, his bat is weak and there have been plenty of defensive catchers that were starters. Look no further than the Sox very own Officer Ron Karkovice. If given a choice between a good offensive catcher with weak defense or a strong defensive catcher with a weak bat, I'll take the defense every time. With Zack Collins improved defense this year I'm not sure we need Severino any more. That was the big question mark with Collins. But I would gladly take Soto and Kieboom.
