The year is 2026, Carlos Rodon is coming off capsule surgery and his 2nd TJ: pitches inning 151.  I'll buy you a beer!

Bob Rosenberg has been the White Sox and Bulls official scorer forever. He was dismissed by MLB after last season. He is 79 and loses what he says is about $20k in income, so he is selling off his 6 Bulls championship rings. The minimum bid is $300k. 

His replacement as White Sox official scorer, is the Phil Rogers  who wrote a positive book about Bud Selig. He was hired by Bud's son in law.

Well this all sounds shady.   And Phil Rogers as they official scorer also sounds like many obvious mistakes will be made

"Yoan Moncada didn't deserve a tenth place vote and Fegan is a hack" Phil Rogers??

Giving Moncada a 10th place vote is fine. Keeping the guy who eventually finished 4th off your 10-man ballot, didn’t make Fegan look good. It was a shitty ballot.

Rogers always seemed like a nice guy, the kinda dude you could share a Miller Lite with at Schaller’s and reminisce with about the glory days of baseball.

In the last five years, though, he’s simply been left behind by more sophisticated, analytics-driven writers.

I remember when complex baseball analysis consisted of mostly OPS, and Pythagorean standings for managers.

If he’s willing to sign an extension, bat him wherever the fuck he wants.

He should be batting 2nd anyways.

He's coming off shoulder shoulder and TJ.  Anything they get from him is a bonus.  I'd put the OU on future MLB innings for Rodon at about 150.

yeah...I for one isn't expecting too much out of him this year at all.  2 more years of control (which includes this year)?

I heard some players were injured headed into camp but they weren’t major injuries. Grandal was one of them. Are they something to be concerned about in terms of missed time? 
 

Also has there been any updates on Jake Burger?

Grandal, Giolito, and Gio Gonzalez will all miss first week of ST games. Will be fine for regular season. 

We’ll be lucky to ever see Burger in a major league game.

Giolio, Gio Gonzalez, and Grandal all with minor injuries.  Expected to miss the first week of spring games but not much more.  Not sure about GG but I believe the other two participated in normal team work outs.  

At Soxfest there was mention of Burger reporting to AZ in a few weeks but nothing more specific that I can recall.  No one seems to be saying much about where he's at in rehab or timetable etc.

Jake lost 50 lbs and is in the best shape of his life. He recently achieved the world's highest score ever on Warcraft III.

Soon-to-be top 5 prospect in the Sox system...

 

Look at all that equipment in the back! God it feels good that this organization is finally catching up to the times. Still not quite there yet, but it's a hell of a start.

kudos to @chitownsportsfan for the second post. I am attending this year again, March 1-3, will be at Sox @ Angels, Padres @ Sox and probably Rangers @ Rockies at Talking Stick.

Staying in Scottsdale, going to hike one of the days. See you there.

Is it wrong for me to think Robert is the righty version of Griffey Jr? He is a gazelle and literally has the best baseball body I've seen in years
