    Sox @ Tigers, 6/13 12:10 ct

    I know right...that's because TLR knows how valuable Leury is with his whopping .238 BA and more importantly his amazing and productive .299 OBP which is so critical for a leadoff hitter.

    That article was written only after his 3rd game at Charlotte. Of course the Sox medical staff was monitoring his progress, as they do with any rehab start for someone at triple A. However Engel played 4 more games in Charlotte without any setbacks and thus was deemed 100 percent ready to come back up. As that article stated, the medical staff told Engel he’s unlikely to reinjure himself even if he still experiences pain for a while. There shouldn’t be anything on the field he can’t do. This is nonsense Engel is being rested for a .244 hitter from Triple A, when in fact Engel is hot going 3-7 and 2 HR's in last two games. I also highly doubt Goodwin is a better CF defensively than Engel

    Madrigal goes on 60 day DL, Hamstring tear: Goodwin recalled

    I think is good optimistic news. If we get Eloy and Robert back by late Aug, early Sept, we will be ok. Hopefully we get Nick back too. We play in the weakest division in baseball. As long as we don't lose any pitchers, we should be able to hang on to first place until we get them back.

    Where do you come up with these crazy assumptions? It has never been published anywhere by the Sox that Engel is playing under a 100 percent recovery. Here is a quote from Engel's Twitter feed after the game he took away the home run. "As far as being on the field, I feel about as 100 percent as I can be," Engel said before the game. "I don’t think that my hamstring — from a strength standpoint — I’m not going to be maxing a leg curl in the next couple weeks. But I’m able to run full speed and do everything I need to do on a baseball field, so I’m excited to play." Plus when did anyone say that Engel wouldn't being playing full time? What CF on this team is better than him or deserves more playing time?

    Will Hahn be more active this deadline?

    He was already going downhill last year with the Nationals, as he only hit .226 last year in the shortened '20 season.

    I agree Goodwin batting 2nd is a joke. However Engel looked good so far and he was starting to heat up going 3-7 the last 2 games with 2 HR's. It make no sense to rest him, unless he was injured and he isn't injured or hurting. If he was injured or hurting it would have been mentioned. I know he is coming off a bad hamstring injury, but the fact they took so long before bringing him back, means they made sure he was 100 percent healthy so they wouldn't have a setback.. Once Engel came back, he needed to play. My god, he only played 5 games.

    This is a joke! Why isn't Engel in CF? He has played a perfect CF defensively as we expected and has 2 HR's in 5 games. Goodwin was hitting .244 BA in Triple A Charlotte. Are you kidding me...this is insanely stupid. Oh I get it, he cant hit in Triple A, but hey don't worry, Goodwin will improve and hit much higher at the ML level. We didn't need a CF brought up...we needed a 2B brought up.

    One way I know the sox are a great team again...

    All your points are sadly true. The Tatis Jr crap is a joke and mostly fueled by jealous Cub fans. The fact is Tatis was a unproven at 17 years old when he was traded from the Sox in 2015. News flash to all non Sox fans...we had a shortstop already in Tim Anderson. I get so tired of Cubs fans saying they can't believe we traded away Tatis. Always be quick to remind our Cubs fans that their executive guru Theo Epstein traded away Dylan Cease and Eloy Jimenez to our Sox for Jose Quintana.

    Madrigal.

    Actually it's not hilarious at all, its called being optimistic and being a Sox fan. It's called looking at facts and the history of White Sox 2nd basemen in the last 30 years. Obviously you are in the negative contrarian club of wishing Madrigal fails to prove a point he is overrated apparently.
  10. "The Kids Can Play"

    Madrigal.

    Totally agree. I cant believe the people here always finding faults with him. Only one 2nd baseman hitting for a higher BA in MLB. Hitting .318 over last two seasons.

    Vaughn to IL, Sheets up

    Sheets should be in the lineup instead of Garcia or Eaton.
  12. Lynn definitely needs to be extended. He is not even close to be washed up at 34. Plus we gave up Dane Dunning to get Lynn. I know Dunning has been inconsistent this year for Texas, but hindsight is 20/20. At the time of the trade, Dunning was a hot pitching prospect and that's why Texas gave us Lynn. It's a dangerous move in giving up future good prospects for rental players, unless you plan on making a major effort in resigning them. Most importantly Hahn needs to resign Lynn because going forward next year, there are still question marks in our rotation with Cease, Rondon and Keuchel.

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    I'm just telling you what Spotrac has published. As I said previously I am not saying whether it is right or wrong. If you say it is 100% wrong and have some other site that says different....then post it. Go to Spotrac and check for yourself.

    Benetti to call Olympic baseball

    Actually Steve Stone is the key man in the booth. I will be fine with Kasper with Steve and no Jason. Jason's humor is getting old quickly.

    Benetti to call Olympic baseball

    I know what you meant and agreed with you. I should have started my post with I was bored too. Regardless of how talented Jason and Len are, they are not a match together.
  16. It should be 3 of 4 but the Tigers swept the Yankees!

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    According to Spotrac, Mercedes signed a 1 year/$570,500 contract with the Chicago White Sox In 2021, Mercedes will earn a base salary of $570,500, while carrying a total salary of $570,500. At Spotrac it shows him being n UFA after this season. I'm not saying you couldn't be right and perhaps they made a mistake, but they are usually right on with their facts. I pray Eaton departs!

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    No! I assume that was humor! lol I meant Hahn all day long! Hahn has been in charge of this team and rebuild the entire time except for the one absurd time when TLR stepped in. TLR had to erase his guilty pathetic feelings for 35 years ago, when he didn't have the common sense to fire Hawk Harrelson and not allow Hawk to fire TLR back then. Hahn is clueless and senile and has no clue on the ability of his players or what and how to sign them.

    Benetti to call Olympic baseball

    That is because you had Len and Jason doing the game and that was two play by play guys. The normal booth is to have a play by play guy and the baseball expert/color analyst. lol

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    You obviously haven't been paying attention to all the moves Hahn has made over the last few years of this rebuild. FYI, not only are the Sox all in to potentially win a WS this year, but Hahn has them set up for many more years to come. Per Spotrac, a site that list all salary contracts and details for all sports, the following Sox players are set to hit Free Agency in the following years: Abreu - '23 Giolito - '24 Grandal - '24 Anderson - '25 Hendricks - '25 Moncada - '26 Heuer - '26 Kopech - '26 Cease - '26 Jimenez - '27 Madrigal - '27 Crochet - '27 Bummer - '27 Robert - '28 IDK, but it sure seems like we can go for the WS for a few more years. The only free agents after 2021 are Lynn, Rodon and Mercedes. Save your research my friend, Kopech isn't being traded.

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    The good news is the only person who matters here is Rick Hahn. There is no way he is trading Kopech. Hahn has publicly stated that Kopech is a huge part of the White Sox starting rotation in the future years as a premium starter.
  22. "The Kids Can Play"

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    Kopech isn't being traded. Hahn loves him and has been quoted as saying he is a big part of the Sox future as a premium starter in the rotation. Plus Kopech was already brought here on a so called "haul" trade. Hahn's first big trade of the rebuild was trading Chris Sale to Boston to get Kopech and Moncada and three other prospects that didn't work out. Kopech has too much talent and upside for Hahn to give up on him, especially since Kopech has missed the last 2.5 years due to Tommy John surgery and Covid Opt-out.
  23. The only weak and troublesome starter of the four is Keuchel who absolutely sucks and is our weakest starter in the rotation. Hopefully Rodon's last outing was an aberration.
  24. I sure hope so. If not today then I would hope during this 4 game series against Detroit.

    Jose Abreu - BAD in high leverage situations

    Wow, based on this ridiculous BS stat, we should probably disregard the fact that once again Jose is leading MLB in RBI's with 46 and since the 2020 season, he is #1 in baseball with 106 RBI's in 111 games over the past two seasons. I wish MLB would go back to the old stat of game winning RBI's that they kept from 1980-1988. I think Jose would be among the league leaders in that category as well. However maybe you're right and it's time to panic. You should probably call up Rick Hahn and give him this insightful information. You could suggest maybe he trade him at the July trade deadline and get some prospects for him. You should tell Hahn to be proactive and trade him now, so we don't have to worry about Jose letting us down in the clutch in the '21 playoffs. LMAO!
