Spring Training thread

Recommended Posts

The best news all year so far is Kopech saying he realized he needs this game. I figured he opted out because of Covid and personal reasons, but I feared he may not have that burning desire to play this game. Good to hear from him because he will be a great one.

What an absolute fucking joke.. Crochet and Kopech in the bullpen. nice. Our bullpen is the tops in the league without them there at the beginning of the year jackasses.

Who knows what that actually means though. They could each go 3 innings every fifth day with an inning here or there between to get up to 70 IP... and then at the end of the year they could ramp them up to enter the playoffs as rotation members.

Who knows.

Sounds like someone needs to take a timeout.

Yeah... seriously, anyone expecting Kopech to be a factor in the rotation this year was not using their brain.

Just seeing him pitch meaningful innings will be a positive.

I think you missed the words “maybe” and “some”.  Sounds like there is a plan in place for both Kopech and Crochet, where they are both on an innings limit but will both be available to contribute in the playoffs. Sounds good to me.

Fegan interview with Rodon, "Whitesox only have talked to me about starting." 

Maybe the sox are serious about a 6 man rotation? Maybe having Rodon starting the 5th day and Crochet or Kopech starting the 6th?

Or they’re doing what they keep saying and putting both in the bullpen.

With so many guys getting pulled by the 5th now its a nice luxury to have guys like Kopech, Crochet, and maybe even Lopez to  throw out there for 3 innings.

Openers are starters...and we have plenty of those.

Forgot about our guy Jake Burger

It would be so great if he has a major league career. Hopefully he’s wanted by other teams because it means he’s healthy and good.

Are they doing antibody testing on everyone, and this means that his came back positive for the antibodies and they need to recheck to be sure?
