    I can't take any analysis seriously when they spell catcher wrong.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    That Arizona error effects a couple different news orgs. As I understand it, all the news orgs get their results from one of two sources that aggregate all the results. I believe Edison is the larger of the two.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    As someone who wanted Trump to lose, I should be happy right now because it looks like that might happen. But I can't help to just feel defeated by this election. Something in me feels like it broke seeing how this all played out. I see so many problems I feel we need to deal with, but no path to do anything about them. I had faith that things would be different. It felt different. And apparently it was, just not in the way I thought.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    I don't believe that needs any amendments. It appears it hasn't been done because it is politically untenable. The whole thing about the fair tax allowing the government to tax retirement income was a quote taken out of context from a politician saying it would be more likely with the fair tax because it would allow the retirement income to be taxed at different rates so seniors who rely on theirs could basically be taxed at a 0% while other larger ones were taxed at a different rate. As for ways to raise more revenues? Pritzker could still try to create the fair tax with a loophole. The state could raise the income tax percentage on everyone, but then have varying deductions or waivers or something like that at the different income levels so it is effectively a progressive structure. It would probably face lawsuits, but if things are bad enough, maybe the state supreme court finds it as a tenable solution.

    I'm not going to lie, I've thought about the Sox going after that Ha-seong Kim and then trying Tim and Yoan in right. I feel like that would give the team a lot of flexibility going forward.

    2020 Draft: Day 2 Discussion

    It looks like Coffey played at Arizona State, transferred to San Jacinto, then to Wabash Valley and was committed to Louisville to finish out his last two years. He might not be a big name, but it seems like the right college programs like him. Hopefully this is one of those times a guy moving around a lot gets lost and we found him because he was local.

    Sox to sign Dyan Jorge?

    There was another video of him running (that seemed to be after this video) and there were no Sox people and he wasn't wearing Sox gear. Almost definitely that workout was just at our facility.
  10. We should trade for the max cap space in this period and go after Pedro Leon and try to steal him from the Astros. Colas looks good and Dyan seems interesting, but Leon is going to be a star and likely sooner rather than later.
  11. Dyan Yamel Jorge seems to be a contact & speed oriented SS. Apparently he was running between 5.9 and 6.1 in the 60 yard during his showcase. To put that number in perspective, our draftee James Beard (who was compared to Billy Hamilton) was the fastest player in last year's draft and he ran a 6.2 60 yard. CJ Abrams is listed as an 80 runner on pipeline and he ran a 6.29 60 yard. Dyan was the starting SS for Cuba in the 2018 u15 World Cup. Check the video in that link. He is wearing a Sox shirt and the scout on the right seems to be wearing a Sox shirt too. I did see another video where he wasn't wearing any Sox stuff, so that showcase in the video above was probably just at our DR facility. https://u15bwc.wbsc.org/en/2018/player/22171 Stats from the World Cup. He had a pretty good day against the USA.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

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

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

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