    Draft Day 3 Thread rounds 11-20

    Maybe he thought he could get more money than we were willing to offer, and when he couldn't he came back around to us? Or we were planning on spending on someone in an earlier round and they got taken before we could get them, so we had more available to get to his number.

    White Sox select Colson Montgomery #22 overall

    https://twitter.com/IHSBCA/status https://twitter.com/IHSBCA/status/1415112944581500929?s=20 /1415112944581500929?s=20 https:https://twitter.com/IHSBCA/status/14151129445815009 29?s=20//twitter.com/IHSBCA/status/1415112944581500929?s=20 https://twitter.com/IHSBCA/status/1415112944581500929 Its confusing, but the tweet with the first all state team says that all drafted players are automatically all state. So he isn't on the lists, but he is still all state.

    I feel like this is an interesting combo with Montgomery. Two guys who are probably 3B, but might be able to stay at SS.

    2021-22 International Signing Period

    He's been a favorite of mine for a while now. He had several really good international tournaments and apparently hit .400 in the CNS last season. Hopefully we still have some 2022 money left to go after him.

    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.

    Offseason Targets

    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.
  14. 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.
