White Sox July 2 International Signing Period preview

Recommended Posts

Guest writer Joshua Strong with a detailed look at international amateurs eligible to sign in the new July 2nd Intl period that have been linked to the White Sox by some sources. Gives a nice intro to the state of the Sox Intl efforts, and mini-profiles of the players the team is supposedly after. Here is the article.

 

With the MLB team stinking it up, it is nice to look at what new talent can be injected into the system.

Not a pessimistic view, just poking fun at my self. The Sox INTL DEPT might be one of the stronger depts in the entire organization.

 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr is not signing with the White Sox, he's been reported as being a done deal with the Blue Jays. I think that Fox is going to sign with the Dodgers as they're going to overspend. I'm not that high on Soto. I think that there are other outfielders.

i hope you didn't take what i wrote wrong, i too was joking. dang it maybe i should have used green. sorry.

 

re soto.... there is something i read many months ago, i think i mention it before on the int'l draft of wishing the sox will over spend... the article i read was, of course a fluff piece, but i am intrigue... i just wish i knew why.

 

vlad and fox, top 10 prospects and nice profile on their .... dang what was when all the prospect comes in to show off what they can do??? we, they did pretty good there.

 

just wishful thinking.

Do the Sox feel like they'd have any real shot at signing Maitan? I realize its far off but it seems like some other org is always able to outspend them.

He shouldn't be co-GM, Rick Hahn has done nothing to have his job questioned, he's a fantastic GM but if the team were to fire Laumann, I would think that Paddy becomes the internal favorite for becoming the new scouting director.

During next year's cycle, 10 teams will be in the red. That gives the Sox a good a chance as anybody.

Yeah I had seen that. I just wonder, if they had a real chance of signing Eddy, if it would be worth it to get such a high ceiling player and not have to worry about competing for "the best intl prospect since Miggy", even in a reduced field.

Really?!?! How in the world could you make such statements, based on the results of the past three seasons. He's on his way to his second last place finish in three years. That hardly classifies him as a "fantastic GM", of all things, and certainly opens the judgments and decisions he's made to plenty of questions.

Hahn has to take the word of his scouts and bosses just like any other GM. He has made an impressive amount of rationally sound baseball moves, given the org's position the last few years.

Exactly, thanks Daggins.

I don't think the buzz around him is quite like Ichiro, Hideki Matsui or even Yoan Moncada.

Does that include signing Viciedo to a $4+ large contract and then releasing him a couple of weeks later?

They didn't pay him anywhere near $4M. Also even if they did, that isn't a "large contract".

We'll then, he ought to be mighty skeptical by now of "the word of his scouts and bosses", given the current state of the organization. Don't you think?

Which is a shade over what a replacement player would cost from the minors.
