  1. Absolutely baffled by the responses here. ERA aside, Dunning showed significantly more than Cease has at any point in the majors, despite coming off of TJ. His peripherals were light years better - we don't want to accept it, but Cease was painfully lucky and one of the worst pitchers in baseball per his xFIP and other predictive measures, and he didn't strike anyone out! I think there's a very real possibility Cease isn't a long-term starter. Dunning, on the other hand, I feel pretty confident as a middle of the rotation starter moving forward. I hope I'm wrong about Dylan but this year was way way worse than his ERA indicated. He's young, but the command was really, really bad.

    8-22 GT: Sox @ Cubs (7:15pm)

    Lineup looks awesome, even with Mazara being bad him this year, him in the 8 spot against a righty is amazing LOL.

    Any update on TA?

    LOL this was pretty good, I chuckled.

    8/10 Sox vs Tigers GT

    Gotta turn two there, as Caulfield pointed out can't wait that long on the transfer.
  5. To the Avi post above, I gotta say I’d actually be much more concerned about a labrum than any other outcome. I get that a wrist can be problematic (see Carlos Quentin) but the labrum recovery seems longer and trickier. Madrigal already struggles to drive the ball (as we all know) - and a labrum tear can really sap your power for a year + even if otherwise functional. Avi, Kris Bryant, etc. are a few that have cited it as a lingering issue. Also speaking from experience here, as I tore my labrum senior year of high school and played through it...yeah I’m sure nobody cares.

    ESPN Lineup Ranking

    Twins being 12 just totally invalidates this list lol...how in the hell is that lineup worse than the Cubs??? Or Angles or A's or Braves even. Set an MLB record for HRs and added Donaldson. Preposterous.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    Yeah I don't get why people are so heated about this, most people loved the idea until Mazara / Keuchel were acquired. Really don't see how adding a 2-3 WAR RF and ascending bat would be bad unless it's for 5 or more years. None of the core is up until after 4.

    White Sox sign Gio Gonzalez

    Cease’s xFIP actually suggested he was pretty unlucky and was closer to 4.4. I think he’ll be fine and I would be surprised if he didn’t have a good amount of leash this year.

    The cost of starting pitching

    Holy crap I hadn't realized how barren the cupboard is. Beyond the extreme need for a guy like Kuechel, I don't understand the lack of urgency on the next tier. Just please for the love of god sign a Gio or Miley so you have options. What can the extra cost be to lock that up? $1-$3 million above market? Figure it out guys. The value of one of those guys over a Despaigne is monumental (well above their own WAR add) and can only enhance trade leverage.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    On the bright side...$5 Million for Mazara and signing let’s say Betances gives you similar WAR value to an Ozuna or Castellanos projection at far less $$. Just need to ACTUALLY spend the remaining dollars to make this worth it.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    All I’m gonna say is they better spend the money on starters now. Even if just a Kuechel, would be disastrous to get two SP with no upside. Seperately, what about contacting the Yankees on Happ + Frazier? Fits the “DH that can play OF” type Merkin says they’re after. More of a pipe dream but also Price/Martinez.

    Nomar Mazara Speculation

    Lol I think he’s referring to the prospect return there.

    Nomar Mazara Speculation

    My only hope is Menichino can fix him, or he figures it out a bit. Wouldn’t be the first time for a former top spec at 24/25 to figure it out lol, he was so rushed up.
