    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    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+

    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.
  12. 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.
