Jimenez will be ok. He's a DH pure and simple. Will he most likely rake in the future yes. But he's terrible in the field

People really need to chill out about Jimenez… some of the most childish shit I've seen in about 3 years.

 

 

Yeah look at how Vlad Jr. has been doing so far.

 

Some posters here should take a xanax and chase it down with a glass of wine to take the edge off.

I disagree strongly with stone and the pun machine... run onto the field... run run run...

 

Get this shit forfeited or something.

This is horrible advice. Do that and you risk committing suicide. Never mix alcohol and benzodiazapines.

He'll be fine, but he was definitely struggling in the early going.  Meanwhile, Chavis is a freaking beast.

It is incredibly annoying that the Sox can't have their nice shiny prospects come up to the majors and be studly immediately. 

Now that I'm done venting, does anyone see the Sox winning anything with their current group of players/prospects?

Maybe I'm naive, but it'll be interesting to see if Cooper truly has lifetime job security. His results have been so poor over the last ~5 or so years, I could see the Sox transitioning him to a scouting role after this season.

But I'm probably wrong and he'll be here until he decides to retire regardless of how bad his results are.

This stat sums up Sox pitching.  1 swing and miss on 49 fastballs thrown so far tonight.

problem is that if he is replaced and they bring in someone in-house like has been rumored, it does the Sox no good if it's still a similar philosophy.

Just look at the Tigers, Royals and O's rosters. Even their scrubs are better than the Sox scrubs. 

Dude relax. This is what tanking looks like.

My hope is they'll hire someone from the Astros/Dodgers/Rays etc and actually go with a 21st century approach to pitching.

Realistically, of course, it's the White Sox. If Coop does go they'll likely just replace him with someone in-house.

Too early to tell about the Sox rebuild. Just like with prospect development, rebuilds aren't necessarily linear. We might have to suffer through another two or 3 years of bad baseball before we see any light at the end of the tunnel.

Everything I said before this post and after the Martinez double was massive hyperbole. I was just frustrated., I can't walk because I had foot surgery and I can't do anything fun but watch sports on a nice day. I'd much rather be fishing or doing astronomy. Sitting in a wheelchair as I'm typing.

It's funny, but I completely disagree when Hahn says development isn't linear.  It seems in the last decade or so, it's been pretty rare for a prospect to completely tank in a season and then go on to excel for the rest of their career.  For every Roy Halladay, there's hundreds of guys that just faded away.

Ha. I'm pretty sure the phrase "prospect development isn't linear" was coined somewhere and sometime by a floundering general manager.

Would only be fair for the Bean Sox to use all pitchers in their lineup.
