First Rodon, now Lu-Gone.  What is it with SF?  Burnes had that game well in hand.

The weird thing there is he’s pitching fairly well…not like the Glasnow spider tack transition.

Know who that hurts most? Teams full of guys who don't take walks or hit for a high average.

James McCann becomes the 62nd MLB catcher to catch 2 or more no-hitters. He becomes the sixth White Sox (Bold) and eighth player in MLB history with at least one game caught in two leagues (italics / underlined).

Of the 315 Official No Hitters in MLB history, 144 or nearly half (45.7%) were caught by these 62 catchers. 

Thirteen of these 62 catchers caught two no-hitters from the same pitcher: (Yogi Berra, Roy Campanella, Nig Clarke, Lou Criger, Silver Flint, Ryan Hanigan, Fran Healy, King Kelly, Ernie Lombardi, Jimmy Peoples, Wilson Ramos, Johnny Roseboro & Carlos Ruiz (twice - Halladay and Hamels, the second a split NH)).

Many fans are aware of Johnny Vander Meer's back to back no-hitters across two starts. One trivia piece most fans including Sox fans are aware of is the fact that the Chicago White Sox are the only team in MLB history to have been no-hit across two consecutive days (May 5 & 6, 1917 vs. the Saint Louis Browns at Sportsman's Park (Saint Louis, not Cicero)). However, the second no hitter on May 6th followed Game 1 of a Doubleheader, the Sox losing 8-4.

May 5, 1917 - Saint Louis Browns 1 vs. Chicago White Sox 0, Attendance 4,000

May 6, 1917 - Saint Louis Browns 3 vs. Chicago White Sox 0, Attendance 20,000

Cano has to be on the all-time over paid list of players.

I'm not sure I agree with that ... he has a career .302 average -- look at those stats ... better than you might think

 https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/savant-player/robinson-cano-429664?stats=career-r-hitting-mlb

Now, if you throw in the PED suspensions? Yes, not great. But does the team pay those salaries in a suspension? 

Really if you look at it his 2020 was still strong. He had one down season with the Mets and a poor start this year. 

 

In regards to signing him? I mean ... he's probably not much better than a Harrison at this point in his career, and probably less volatility now. You could convince me, but not sure where he fits. 

 

What I'd love to see is:

Sox trade for Eleiser Hernandez - give up Sheets or Burger type. Maybe a lower end prospect tied to them. Marlins have Meyer and a few others knocking at the door and Hernandez is disposable for them. Burger would be a nice fit for that team. Though him and Sheets are kind of just repeats of the Brian Anderson, Garret Cooper, Aguilar type mold. Nonetheless think it'd be a good trade. 

Sox release Keuchel. I'd say slot him into long relief for mop up roll as an option as well. It's a sunk cost. He doesn't seem to fit in the clubhouse (at least on some of his comments ... that's kind of conjecture). 

By late May your rotation is: Giolito, Cease, Lynn, Kopech, Eleiser with Cueto/Keuchel/VV as your spot/mop up guy. 

 

In regards to Cano someone would have present to me the roster gymnastics and who'd have to get cut to make the spot ... he's taking whos spot? Sheets I guess?? He could backup Abreu alongside Vaugh and Yaz. Be the split/hot bat spot at 2b ... ? I don't love or hate it. Seems net neutral.

another one to consider.. willie calhoun

don't think it's really necessary ... but he's had flashes and with eloy out for 6+ weeks might be an option? 

I'd rather have Engel/Robert/Pollock roaming the OF with Vaughn filling in at 1b/dh/lf/rf & playing 6 games a week, so not sure there's really a place for calhoun ... but if the price is free it's not that hard to take a chance.

I doubt Sox would release DK so soon and admit to a lot of wasted money. More likely they give him away for a meh minor league pitcher.
