    The Yermin-Vaughn-Abreu Conundrum

    People seem to exaggerate how bad Eloy is based on some occasional very bad looking plays. He is not good but the vast majority of the games he does fine and catches the balls hit towards him. Removing him from LF for DH significantly decreases our offensive potential.

    I'd prefer just going with Vaughn in RF.

    That’s a Chicago Yermins Win!!!!

    The fact is he was wasting away in the minors the past few seasons while had an open spot at DH. He was not raking in the upper minors prior to getting into the Sox system. Any other team in the White Sox situation would have given him a chance much earlier than the White Sox did.

    If Yermin hits over .400 this season, is he the MVP?

    He should still get a chance to play first some games. Just because he missed that one catch last game on a bad throw doesn't mean he can't play first.

    He was crushing the ball in AAA in 2019 and even during September call ups they didn't give him a shot. Think of all the trash bats we have given so much playing time at DH the past few years while we've had Yermin in the system.

    CLE @ SOX, 7:10 PM Central

    I remember reading this guys posts about Rodon's mechanics leading to his injuries. I don't know if he was right but it looks like Rodon has gotten rid of that twist in his delivery. http://chrisoleary.com/pitching/thelist/#Rodon_Carlos

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    I don't think Abreu cares about bat flips.

    Royals vs Sox 5:20pm Home Opener GT

    Lynn is nice but I decided to look up how Dunning is doing and he is doing very good. I still believe trading him for 1 season of Lynn was a mistake.

    4-5 GT: CWS @ SEA (9:10 PM CT)

    Especially considering we had a blackhole in the DH spot.

    The TLR Manager Thread

    Nothing La Russa has done is irrational. Sometimes a manger deserves criticism for bullpen management but most the time it is just hindsight criticism where no one had any problems with the choice until the pitcher gives up runs.

    Vaughn would be more likely to get traded than Eloy.

    4-3 GT: CWS @ LAA (8:07 PM CT)

    Leury is a solid hitter who usually hits .270+, it seems most would prefer to forget that and overreact because he hasn't gotten a hit in his first 2 games.

    4-3 GT: CWS @ LAA (8:07 PM CT)

    I was posting all the time last year about Yermin as DH, I even made it my signature.

    4-2 GT: CWS @ LAA (8:38 PM CT)

    I just want to say I had my signature since last year and have been championing Yermin the past few seasons. We've had a blackhole at DH for years and he deserved to have a chance long ago. I don't know why more fans were calling for him when we had such trash at DH.

    Sox acquire Lance Lynn for Dane Dunning and Avery Weems

    I liked what we saw from Dane especially since he was a rookie who will likely improve. He also seemed to be a likable guy who is good for the clubhouse. However, I wasn't immediately against the trade when I first read about it until I found out Lynn is only a 1 year rental.
