Ron brought up Mark Kotsay in a reply to me a week or 2 ago about signing him to play 1B..... So i dont think he's serious.

 

Would be an interesting hire though.

Jerry likes the cut of Kotsay's jib. Don't be surprised if it happens.

Mike Shirley or Nathan Durst would be my guess.

Kiley McDaniel: The buzz on the White Sox scouting director opening is that one will likely be internal

 

So far it just seems like that's the rumor floating around (which would be very on brand for the Sox). I could've sworn that Fegan said on his podcast last Friday that they were at least interviewing outside candidates which may have made me too optimistic for an actual outside hire.

Great hire.  The amatuer scouting department is in very good hands.  

Interesting. If I recall correctly, you suggested he had his hands all over the 2019 draft class?

That he did.

The 2019 class was the first time in a long time I liked what the Sox did.

Yo @Harold's Leg Lift. I know you have a proclivity for the toolsy prep position players, but you have any thoughts on the college pitching crop at this point? Who do you like? Who do you not? Particularly the early first round candidates.
