  1. I’d like to see Sox spend a little on either Walker or Archer but I’m not holding my breath. I’ll guess Folty is the guy, pretty meh on him, a lottery ticket who you hope Katz can rebound to form. I still want no part or ReyLo as the 5, he should be the long guy.

  2. It’s hard not to ignore the athletic upside of Howard, local kid or not. 
     

    Detmers is enticing prob best CVB in draft. Can never have enough pitching but less a left hander. 
     

    Kelley is a flame thrower with big time front line starter potential but we’ve seen this orgs obvious preference for college players in rd1. 
     

    I think with who’s likely available Shirley may finally buck that trend and go either with Kelley or Howard.

  3. Looking at the Phillies schedule they have a ton of winnable series coming up the remainder of this month. Atl, NYM, SD, SF and Mia are their next 5 series. The Sox should be able to make up ground/find themselves in #1 pick position by end of August. In the #TumbleforTurang wagon over here.

    At this point I'm just hoping they end up with Beer as either an underslot or he develops his defense to stick in the OF.

     

    Considering the best player in franchise history was a DH, if his bat plays, his bat plays.

     

    With Abreu getting older especially by the time the young kids make it up to the league, Beer could play 1B depending how Sheets develops. Still would love to see Turang with the Sox. Not giving up on TA as it's way too early in his career but I do have some doubts.

    If the Rosenthal tweet is real - anyone think he might have taken it down because Rick Hahn did a last call (a la Sale to Nats) and someone like the Brewers stepped in?

     

    Have a hard time believing that tweet existed. People talking about it here and on twitter yet not one screen shot of the supposed tweet...

    As great as Swarzak has been this year, he's a 31 year old journeyman pitcher who has had one good half of pitching. If his inclusion nets you 4 solid 50+ prospects, you take it.

     

    The White Sox have top end talent in Moncada, Kopech, and Robert. Who is the #4 prospect in the system right now? Hansen? He's still in high-A and has struggled through 3 starts. The Sox need depth. That offer would provide EXACTLY that.

     

    And, according to the recent narrative that we'd be disappointed in a Quintana trade, that would be relatively disappointing, yet still gratifying. If they ended up with Brinson, I wouldn't be upset, and in fact would be quite happy, but the Sox outfield depth, though years away, is actually starting to show some players that may make it in the majors.

     

    Maybe the Sox include Melky, or maybe they get pieces other places, or maybe they deal Quintana to Milwaukee for Brinson and Diaz. Regardless, I don't think we're looking at Ray nor Gatewood, unless Gatewood is somehow a final piece.

     

    Ray as a headliner in a deal would make me vomit. Outside of big 3 I do think there's depth in farm (obviously primarily pitching). However whichever route they go team wise I hope they land that "star" prospect albeit Brinson, Acuna, Albeis, Frazier, Rogers etc.
