  1. He doesn't have a QO attached. He was traded mid year so he was ineligible for it.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Okay there Owen Wilson?

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Yeah, Hahn is helping his good friend Jon Daniels try to get Rendon so they can compete.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    I would still only put the o/u at 5.5 of that lineup having over a 100 wRC+

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Once again this FO thinks they can take a post hype prospect and turn them around. It still hasn't worked yet. We bought high on Rutherford and he hasn't done anything. We bought high on Casey Gillaspie and now he is in indy ball. And now we buy high on Mazara who is probably going to end up being nontendered going into next year. Maybe the 57th time is the charm, or maybe this organization should actually invest in player development.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    IIRC, he basically pulls the ball on the ground and sprays it in the air which is basically the exact opposite of what you want. The ground ball pull tendency makes infield shifts easy and effective while hitters usually have their best power to pull side so he isn't getting that as often. In that regard, it seems like he might be a swing change candidate, so I can see him being good in the right organization, I just don't know if that's us.

    Rick Hahn on The Score @10am

    Well yeah, but the point is the pipeline to trade from likely won't develop because we no longer will be picking at the top of the draft or trading useful major leaguers away.

    But that requires development and as that Driveline study last year showed, we were far and away the worst organization at developing players.
  9. There are better options, we just didn't even try for them. We went after the second tier and still got beat.

    Update: Pomeranz to Padres

    I could go back and listen, but I think that was the point. Other guys who had similar numbers over small samples all ended up doing well outside of one person who got injured.

    Update: Pomeranz to Padres

    The Statcast podcast had a good segment on him. It's worth the listen, but the general point was that very few people who put up numbers like he did end up being bad. So while it might be a smaller sample, he might actually be less volatile than other relievers.

    Team USA 2020 Olympics team has 2 Sox prospects

    They better bring a better team to the next qualifying event. It will be embarrassing if we don't even make the Olympics.

    Sox trade rights to Welington Castillo to rangers

    They have the next 8 months to spend the money. J2 doesn't mealy July is the only time you can sign people. The window remains open until mid-June. If they want to sign any amateurs that pop up between now and then (and there are a lot with the Cuban defections), they need this money.

    Fuck Jerry Reinsdorf and everyone he has hired to run this organization into the ground so he can make a buck

    Badler 2020 J2 Preview

    I don't know if he will be 2020 or if he will be cleared and sign in this current period, but Pedro Manuel Leon has left Cuba. IMO, he was one of the top 2 or 3 best players left. Hopefully we have enough money to make a run at him whichever period he decides to sign in.
