Can’t believe this game is still 5-0. Horrible situational hitting. Should be at least 7. Hopefully doesn’t come back to haunt us. Don’t exactly feel great about Gio going through the lineup too many times 

I doubt Gio goes more than 5

You and I were the only ones, Jack.

I have a problem with the Sox going with Madrigal/Vaughn over the last two drafts where they were picking. Those guys should be picked in the 8-12 range, not top 4. Both guys have too many limits for where they were picked. Not that they both can't be good players, but Madrigal's ceiling is Placido Polanco and that's too low for a top 4 pick. I also disagreed with picking a 1B/DH top 3, but another FO in the division picked a 1B/DH #1 so I can't complain.

Imagine how we'd feel right now had they gone with Kelenic and Abrams.

In contrast, I absolutely love what they did with Crochet at 11 because that's the type of risk/reward pick you make at that point in the draft.

Idk how you live in Chicago and don't heavily scout a guy attending HS in Waukesha, WI. It's 90 minutes away, basically in our backyard.

I'm impressed with Gonzalez' swing and miss stuff today. It's Rich Hill-like. Must have insane spin on the heater.

They scouted the hell out of him but decided to go the safe route.  It's going to haunt them for years.

I know Madrigal has had a tough start, Jack.  But what do you have against Vaughn  already?

I like Madrigal. He’s going to be a winning player. Nobody thought he had the highest upside. Quite frankly, the Sox took him when their brains were all in on Manny Machado. Made sense. But, you know..,

What exactly about Bubba Sterling scared Gio? He pitched around him twice.

It's about positional value for where they were picking, it's my personal philosophy. It's fine to disagree.

Way too many opportunities to put away this game wasted.

Need Cordero to get a big out here or the Royals will be right back in the game with momentum on their side.

I was for Kelenic or Liberatore that year. I don't agree with them going with Madrigal over Kelenic, but I do understand it.
