    2019 MLB draft thread

    Players get taken early all the time to save money. If you could get Witt and save money for your next pick that's a pretty good deal...

    Jake Burger taking grounders

    Really? you have no idea what kind of shape he is in. Just because he looks bigger than what you think he should be means you get to say whatever you want?

    Red Line Radio Hahn Interview

    Keith Law says he has a good arm and calls a good game but is a below average receiver. To me that doesn't say he cant play catcher. And if baseball goes to an automated strike zone, there is no reason to believe he cant stay there...

    Optimistic Fan Thread

    As excited as I am about Bush, I am more excited for Lenyn Sosa.

    Optimistic Fan Thread

    I am still very high on our farm. Our OFs in AA and the IF in Kann have me most excited. I am also excited for our draft pick. I am looking forward to Madrigal proving doubters wrong. I am also excited for Zavala and Collins as our platoon Cs.
  7. When watching the Voyagers last year Amando Nunez was the best hitter on the team for the games I got to see. I got to see 3 or 4 games and he was very impressive.
  8. Everybody is so excited about Bush (and they should be) but Sosa was easily the most complete player in the infield, and if I recall correctly he is actually younger than Bush. I am really excited about him.

    Zack Collins at First Base

    So, Keith Law says he can throw and calls a good game but he is a below average receiver. "if" the big leagues go to an automated strike zone it will limit his receiving liability will also placing a greater value on his batters eye. So this is one rule change that could have a significant impact on Collins career. Also, when Law isn't as negative about his D as our fans are, it makes you wonder.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    But he has the power is the thing. He had it in college, and everybody who has seen him hit bp says its there, he just needs to bring it out in games. Yes, it is a big if, but most prospects have big ifs. I see a ton of potential in his bat and people acting like he is nothing is driving me nuts.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I am so tired of people ragging on Sheets... If he develops game power he is a starting 1b in the future. He has the power and he just needs to translate it to the game... He is a great hitter who has put in the work on his fielding and won his leagues gold glove.

    Callis White Sox Tweet Q&A

    eh... I feel like he is saying Gonzalez's bat plays at CF but isn't as enticing as a corner OF. So if he fielding improves for CF or his power improves for a corner he will be highly thought of.

    Personal opinions on Sox rebuild pieces.

    But... but.... but.... that doesn't fit some peoples narrative. he is not an all star already so he is another failed 1st round pick who should have no future with us.

    Signing Luke Heimlich: Acceptable or Quit being a fan worthy?

    i tend to feel the same. But if I am in charge of making the decisions, I am not signing him. I don't want to be the guy responsible for bringing on that PR nightmare. somebody else can go out on that limb.
  15. Just make him wear gloves that keep his thumbs stuck against his hand when he is on base...

    Spring Training Thread

    Yeah he shouldn't be trying to PLAY BASEBALL! What is he thinking? On a serious note we need to work with him on his sliding and avoiding hurting his thumb...

    Alec Hansen

    Plus.... the pitch face. How can anybody give up on that pitch face?

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I think I have decided there was collusion between the sox and the phils this offseason. To me that is the only logical reason no to go after Harper after MM signed. There had to have been a "gentlemen's" agreement that if they backed off MM we wouldn't try for Harper. it might sound conspiratorial but I really cant think of a good reason not to go for Harper. (he ended up being cheaper than MM)

    3/1 vs Rangers, 2pm

    I think it was because Robert got to keep more of the money and pay less in taxes.

    3/1 vs Rangers, 2pm

    Are you just discounting his AFL and ST plate appearances?

    3/1 vs Rangers, 2pm

    I would be ok with AA. I think you don't move him from AA until he has shown he has mastered it, But in both AFL and ST he has faced better pitching than he will face in A+ and he has shown he is up to the task.

    3/1 vs Rangers, 2pm

    Ive wondered this a couple times on the futuresox board. At the end of last season I thought if he had a good AFL and spring he could move up to AA but some people thought he will go to A+ no matter what.

    3/1 vs Rangers, 2pm

    If he stays healthy he will definitely be in the discussion.

    3/1 vs Rangers, 2pm

    Yup. Kid has the tools to be one of the greatest CFs we've ever seen. If he can just fulfill some of his potential he will be a great player.

    KW: "It's a shame" the Sox are being portrayed as cheap

    The cost of these could hurt our chances of paying for our core players in the future.
