It's That Time Of The Year Again...

Recommended Posts

I am fortunately (or unfortunately as some might say) the guy who creates the top 5-10 pick status thread pretty much every year and with the Mets sweeping us, this was the last straw for me to do this once again. Anybody else feel free to update. 

With this loss, Sox (for the time being) just passed Pittsburgh for the 7th overall pick in the draft. The Tannnnnk link. The Sox once again are not far off from a top 5 pick.

A high pick in what looks to be a very strong draft class is very desirable. Go tank go.

Early disclaimer...if you don’t care about the draft, that’s fine....but don’t ruin this thread.  Thanks

Sox play 6 teams over .500 this month alone (Phillies, A's, Houston, Anaheim, Minnesota [twice], Atlanta)

They only play 2 teams .500 or under this month (Detroit, Rangers [they're exactly .500 currently]). 

September isn't nearly as daunting, but with this team.. you never know.

They battle Detroit 7 times of the last 10 games. Make your plans now.

Detroit is another level of awful, they are not catching them

I think we end up at 6 and I'll be very happy.  Strong draft and a lot more high end pitching

Is it going to be another advanced college bat pick or is the next draft deep in high quality pitching?  Thanks, I'll hang up and listen.

IIRC the top of the 2020 class is loaded with college arms. 

I agree they probably end up at 6 or 7 but I'd be stoked with 5.

I'm over here, hooting and hollering about TANKWATCH 2020 (the draft class not the MLB season)

They can catch the Mariners. Maybeeee Marlins and Jays.

Completely agree. They have an outside shot at #4 (Jays). They ain't catching the Tigers, O's or Royals but they don't need to.

Blue Jays play the O's 4 times this week alone (6 times in September).

Just checked. 10 left against the O's. But they also of course play the Rays, Yankees, and Red Sox a lot (23 games if I counted correctly).

For the rest of the breakdown:

6 against the Mariners

3 against Dodgers

3 against Astros

3 against Rangers

4 against Braves (awkward interleague rivals)

Now, now.  Let's not be too hasty.  If the Sox continue at this .200 pace they are on, that would leave them with only 57 wins.  Just lose all those games to the Tiggers at the end of the year....

I know. It's also why I really don't care about winning the remainder of this season. Full systems go in 2020 though.

Why click on a thread you have no interest in? I don't understand.

First I didn't know what it's about. It's also the time of year of NFL training camps, of talking about expanded rosters, of kids going back to school, etc. Secondly I like to read people's opinions on all topics. I like reading opinions of people who disagree with me and I an open to all forms of opinions and revelations. I just shouldn't respond and I won't in this thread. I will read it but no posts after this one. Thank u.

I literally posted "white sox draft pick status" underneath the title to give certain posters the heads up.

Maybe standings instead of status? I was thinking it was a prospect update. I like this speculation as well.

Cuz he likes to troll.

Bring on the tank.  A good college arm that is near ready for the majors is definitely what the Sox need with their first pick.
