    Home Opener Game Thread! White Sox vs Tigers

    This bullpen is trash but what's the point in spending money or prospects on relievers on this year's team?

    I am sure the people who stayed appreciate some free baseball.

    The hits by Castellanos and Martinez weren't exactly line drive rockets but geez... Soria is not looking good. I don't think he threw a first pitch strike to anyone

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 01:32 AM) And while the opposite can be said for Kopech and Anderson, I quite frankly don’t give a s*** as long as they produce on the field and don’t break any laws off of it What have Kopech and Anderson done that would make them the "opposite" of fantastic people? Are you kidding me Leury?

    An ugly inning for Jones. Might take him a while to get back on track. Yolmer Sanchez is having a pretty good game...

    Tough luck for Leury, hopefully Anderson can come through.

    QUOTE (maxjusttyped @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 12:02 AM) What if Matt Davidson is a good hitter now? I always thought Davidson sucked. But he has that short compact swing going now. I'd love to be wrong about Davidson. That ball would have been a no doubt HR on any other day.

    QUOTE (chitownsportsfan @ Apr 5, 2018 -> 11:49 PM) I don't think he likes the cold. Yeah hard to evaluate anything on a day like this. Everyone on both teams at the plate just wants to get out of there as fast as possible.

    Dixon Machado seems to be the perfect below average player to torment the Sox for the next few years just like Nick Punto or Ryan Raburn.

    Hopefully this game gets called after 5. Being in the stands must be miserable and the level of play is impacted by the weather.

    I love the energy Anderson has this year. A completely different guy from last season.

    Not gonna lie, hearing the Hawk makes me feel happy even though he became a caricature of himself the last few years.

    WhItE SoX Winner

    Nice win. Lopez was electric early and then his stuff flattened out. Nevertheless he should be a lockdown reliever at least. I love how hard our fringy prospects are playing. Engel looks like a cromulent 4th OF. One of Smith/Omar would be a good backup C. Delmonico has impressed me and should be at least a bench bat. I still think that Leury will be a regular or super utility guy for years to come. He can play and got a bad rap for his awful first stint with the Sox,but has produced in the minors and now in the big leagues. That Alex Rios trade is looking pretty good

    Game 3 vs Stros

    This may sound like a meathed hot take: But I've watched a decent amount of Astros gamws thanks to MLB.Tv and that team reminds me so much of the Twins from 2009 to 2011. They are build to win in the regular season, but will struggle come October. Their pifching is just not good enough.

    Game 3 vs Stros

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Aug 11, 2017 -> 05:12 AM) Minus the suddenly sloppy D...but yeah. He went for a barehand play when he shouldn't have. Yesterday's error was a bad hop on the grass. how is that sloppy? Who questioned his bat speed btw? That's ludicrous. Nice play by Anderson.That wasn't easy at all.

    Sox vs Stros game 2

    Great outing by MiGo. Hopefully the Sox bring him back ndxt year. Need that reliable veteran even on a rebuilding team.

    Frazier to Boston Rumors getting heavy

    QUOTE (chitownsportsfan @ Jul 18, 2017 -> 11:53 PM) The Tigers seem to have gotten three fringe prospects back for JD, they couldn't do any better than that? Really weird to trade him two weeks before the deadline if that was the best offer they had on the table. There is always a chance someone gets injured on a contender. Would rather have the comp pick if I were the Tigers.

    Sox holding talks "daily" on Q

    The Rangers had no qualms about trading Demeritte for Lucas freaking Harrell. He isn't good enough to be a substantial piece for Q. Maybe in as a throw in like Diaz in the Sale trade.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Dec 23, 2016 -> 05:50 PM) He definitely has a point. Offense has been the problem. If it is going to be so easy to acquire, why wasn't it acquired? I understand you need some pitchers, but the game is getting away from starting pitching, except for a #1 or #2 guy being important. It's about the bullpen, and pitching prospects bust at a higher rate than hitters. Moncada was a great start, but there needs to be a lot more. Unless they plan on trading Rodon, Q is pretty much their last asset to get top of the line offensive prospects. You can only trade pitching for hitting if you have a surplus of pitching. The Sox didn't have that, that's why we trotted Shields Danks and Ranaudo out there. I would prefer some high level position players but stockpiling arms isn't so bad either.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (soxfan2014 @ Dec 22, 2016 -> 07:09 PM) Idk if they really need Melky. If they moved Schwarber, I think Zobrist would just go to left with Baez in at second. Yeah, I forgot about Baez. But Melky would give them some insurance if Heyward still hasn't remembered how to hit. You're right though.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    If we're just throwing trade ideas at the wall: Quintana and Melky with Sox picking up half of Melky's contract for Schwarber, Jimenez and Candelario. But I don't think that's realistic at all. Let's see where the Pirates rumors go and hopefully some names get leaked by either FO.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (NCsoxfan @ Dec 22, 2016 -> 06:41 PM) I require Schwarber & Happ for Q. I'd prefer Schwarber. Jimenez and Candelario. Schwarber's value is limited in the NL. And they can't even move him to first either. He would be a logical trade piece.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (steveno89 @ Dec 17, 2016 -> 12:04 AM) His upside (best case) would be that of an above average fielding SS or 2B leadoff type hitter that hits .300 and steals bases That is a valuable player, and he was young for the AAA level by two years, but his struggles in AAA would concern me a little bit He was awesome in AA, but a .650 ops in AAA is reason to think Would I love him in the Sox organization? Absolutely. But, he needs to prove he can handle AAA pitching this season I'm totally iwth you. I mean Alcides Escobar had some good years. Or I'll throw out Elvis Andrus as another ceiling comp. A very valuable player, but not what you're looking for in a Quintana trade.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (Baron @ Dec 16, 2016 -> 11:53 PM) Seriously that's your ceiling for Albies? He has no power. Without power his now decent walk rate will go down a lot in the majors. Pretty good fielder and good runner. I just don't see much upside there.
  25. GermanSoxFan

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    Albies as the headliner for Q would make me livid. IMO his absolute ceiling is Alcides Escobar.. There is not much upside in his bat and we all know the Sox need those kind of bats badly.
