    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    I do not think we have seen enough Vaughn yet to conclude that he is better than anyone out there. Let's withhold judgment on him as a hitter and as an outfielder until we see more of him. TLaR is giving Vaughn the chance to prove himself.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    It may soon come down to whether you want Vaughn or Mercedes as our full-time DH. Pick one.

    CLE @ SOX, 1:10 PM Central

    Afternoon shadows between the mound and the plate impacted hitters. Cold weather was a factor on both offense and defense. This is football weather, not baseball weather. I am amazed how many times posters still like to take shots at Eloy. If a player wants to take his starting role they will have plenty of chances on offense and defense this year to prove themselves. This was a bad game today because, among other things, it was impacted greatly by what I believe was a bad call on Eaton's double. Allowing a defender to tangle his leg with a base-runner and then stumble down while tagging him looked like a dirty trick by a wise guy more than a legitimate baseball play. Then the taller player stared down Eaton like a tough guy. All that without any consequences for his behavior.

    Carlos Rodon Apology Thread

    How what works?
  5. Several players on the Cubs (and their families) have refused to get vaccinations. I am not sure about the White Sox. I don't understand how anyone is allowed to play major league baseball or be in contact with the players if they are not fully vaccinated.
  6. How can you be happy for a lynch mob? I read a post by a guy who was hoping JR would drop dead. Others have mocked TLaR incessantly. One guy said yesterday that he is now rooting against the White Sox. I am happy for real White Sox fans though.

    Carlos Rodon Apology Thread

    The Sox front office lost confidence in Carlos after he came in out of the bullpen and blew that game against the Tribe last Fall. I suspect Jerry Reinsdorf may have approved signing Carlos after Rick Hahn decided to DFA him. Whoever made that decision, it was obviously a good call.

    It will be Eloy in LF and Mercedes at DH.

    I guess I am a little more forgiving of Plesac and maybe people in general than you might be. Pleasacs explanation of violating curfew: "I understand that there are risks people are taking to play this game. And the last thing I would ever want to do is put anybody at risk. The last thing I would want to do -- my little brother has type-1 diabetes, my mom's a nurse. I understand the significance of this illness and this disease, and I know how important it is that we must follow certain procedures and guidelines to ensure safety for the entirety of a group. "It breaks my heart for people to think I'm a bad teammate or a bad person. But I wanted to share with you guys that moving forward, there's a selflessness lesson taught here and at the end of the day, I want everybody to be healthy. I want to be a good teammate. I want to win baseball games, man. That's all I want to do"

    I wanted to trade for Plesac in the off-season....and I still would, just for a lot less. Maybe ReyLo straight up.

    And that's a White Sox Loser!

    Lamb just missed a 2 run homer to tie the game. He put a nice swing on that pitch. If it was a little warmer outside, that ball would have carried out. This is a guy who hit 30 HR a few years back and still has plenty of power, particularly against RH pitchers. The guy that should not be on the roster is Williams, but he should be gone, I hope, when Engel returns. Engel should be in LF every game. That said, I am not sure how they get Vaughn at bats when Engel comes back. Maybe cut the juvenile swipes at Tony LaRussa at some point? Grow up folks.

    Trade Targets

    No trades for an outfielder. Hang on until Eloy returns. Try Vaughn for a while to see how he fares.
  13. The Sox are not all in without Eloy. He would have transformed the heart of the line-up and hit 30+ HR. You can't recover from that loss by spending money.
  14. Vaughn is a As far as Lamb getting a shot tonight, Sox Scouts know about the 2016 and 2017 seasons that Lamb had, particularly against RH pitching where he jacked 25 HR just against RH pitchers. Yea, TLaR is older than you but he has a law degree, World Series rings, and is in the HOF. Maybe give him a break and stop piling on the criticism. Enough is enough. Try to enjoy the game men. Be happy.Things are looking up this year. Jake Lamb 2016 Highlights
  15. Tony wants some defense to help Giolito. That at least explains why Vaughn isn't in LF. Using Lamb at DH was a decision that might be based on some factor(s) that the fans don't know about. Well, the line-up is weak because Eloy and TA aren't here, not because Vaughn is on the bench Mercedes will get in to pinch hit at some point or possibly replace Lamb if we knock out Bieber. Let's just win and live to fight (with one another) another day (tomorrow).
