    Deadline Prediction Thread

    Eloy Jimenez Luis Robert Yasmani Grandal And that will be it. They can sell it as just as good as a trade without JR having to part with money.

    In other news ronn would trade Abreu for Carson Fulmer and Fulmers unconditional release 10 minutes later.

    7/21 Gamethread: Cease vs. Pineda, 7:10 PM

    Most people in Chicago couldn't pick him out of a lineup unless he was wearing a uniform that had his name on the back. He was a cult hero for a few months this season. He hasn't ascended to legend status. He will go back home and will disappear into nothingness. Its a shame but its reality.

    Wisconsin has a lot of talent overall. Their travel organizations do a great job in preparing the kids. They have amazing facilities and programs up in Wisconsin.

    Having him at 3rd is stupid.

    Heyman: Sox interested in someone on some team. Nightengale: *nods*

    Bob is an instrument to the front office. He is used either for misinformation or to negotiate. The only thing he is told is something that JR wants out there.

    6/22: Chicago White Sox @ Pittsburgh 6:05 PM CDT

    They are not making big moves. Look for aging vets on their last leg because TLR remembers him or guys off the scrap heap

    Hahn: Too early to know if Sox will be buyers

    There is zero chance the white sox take on salary. JR is still on this planet. It's either prospects on the way out for things that don't fiscally cost us a lot. Or mediocre players who make TLR tingle in the right place.

    Heyman: Sox interested in someone on some team. Nightengale: *nods*

    There is zero chance they upgrade. JR spent money on a FA for RF. Unless Eaton is out for the season he is going to be out there. We trotted out a terrible OF into the playoffs last year. He will do the same this year.

    Limit of 13 pitchers back in place next season...

    Its a foot. Its not really going to change those angles all that much. I just think allowing breaking pitches to get one more foot to eat is going to have the exact opposite effect.

    Funny you should say reliever risk. The shape of his slider reminds me of a former white sox reliever. Luis Vizcaino

    Harold the other thing that gets me. Kumar's big pitch is his slider. It has more drop than lateral movement. I don't know how that's going to play in the majors. He throws it just out of the zone and I see batter after batter chase it. MLB hitters have a much more discerning eye than College hitters.

    Kumar Rocker was sloppy tonight against Arkansas in the SEC Tourney. He got chased with a high pitch count in the 4th inning after giving up 4. I see him and I see Carson Fulmer. Great stuff to get college hitters out. Not enough control to make the next leap.
