    2021 BOLD predictions thread

    With 2 outs in the 9th inning of game 5 of the World Series Nick Madrigal hits a walkoff 2 run home run to clinch a world series victory. However upon appeal it is determined that Yasmani Grandal missed the bag when rounding third base and is called out resulting in a White Sox loss. The Sox go on to lose the series in 7 games.

    How often are you thinking he catches?

    This should be the new MLB marketing slogan.

    Owners would like to delay season until vaccine

    I'm sure they will have a way to scan the microchip.

    Indians will be no more

    Just make sure that mascot stays away from the bat boys.

    Sox sign Adam Eaton 1 year, $7m plus option

    The important thing to remember is that this means we basically got Giolitto, Lopez and Lynn for Avery Weems.

    George Springer Thread

    I miss Peavy, he was entertaining. It's a shame he was driven away from the board.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    There is no way greg775 is a real person. I have always been under the assumption that it is just another member that has created a character to play on the forums

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I thought that hiring Hinch was supposed to be the move that would cause the Sox to receive negative media coverage. Seems like the La Russa hire isn't being as well received as I am sure JR thought it would be. I sure hope JR doesn't see this as his big signing for the year. And I am sincere about this.

    What would you have done ...

    The manager in a modern baseball organization is basically a middle management position. I don't think the position comes with the amount of power many people think it does.

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    Sure it bothers me, but I believe in second chances. If it is deemed he is the best man to move this club forward then I can accept that.
  13. So no second chances? One mistake and that's it forever?
  14. What if his boss told him not to stop it? It seems like take every advantage was an organizational philosophy with the Astros.
  15. I can't believe so many would refuse to give someone a second chance. To the OP, you said how would you explain this to your kids. Would you not use this as an opportunity to teach that making a mistake is not the end of the world. A mistake was made and the man received and served his punishment and hopefully learned from it and now can receive a second chance if he proves worthy.
  16. I would prefer: Person X Giolito Keuchel Person Y Cease Dunning/Kopech etc.

    Guess the pitcher we add in the offseason

    I guess you are just much more optimistic than I am. I would not want to go into next season having to rely on Kopech, Cease and Dunning all to have success. Especially considering possible regression of Giolito without McCann and while I do like Kuechel I'm not sure he can repeat what he did this year. Far to many question marks to be comfortable with what we have. I really think we need 2 starting pitchers to be added. On TOR and one at the back end. Bauer is the only TOR guy that is a free agent next year so he needs to be the #1 priority and then they can look at grabbing a guy like Q for the back half of the rotation. That would give us a very good starting rotation of Bauer, Giolito, Kuechel, Q and Cease. Kopech for sure has to start in the minors and I think some additional time in the minors could help Dunning as well, make them force their way into the rotation instead of giving them a spot and hoping it works out.

    Really fun season

    With the Sox off of WGN I decided to buy MLBtv for the first time as I was excited to see this young team. After the first week of frustration I was questioning my purchase, thankfully they turned things around and it was an incredibly fun season to watch.

    Offseason Targets

    That's a pretty solid list right there.

    Guess the pitcher we add in the offseason

    I am curious what you believe is our most pressing need? My opinion is that without at least someone that can at least pass as a #2 starter any other acquisitions aren't going to matter.

    We are mad at the wrong Rick

    Yes, he does. I'm just not sure how long that will take. Who knows, maybe he will click with Grandal quickly or perhaps with which ever back up catcher we end up with.

    Offseason Targets

    Yeah, If they can't get Bauer then they have to hope the new Mets owner want to start a rebuild and deGrom becomes available.

    We are mad at the wrong Rick

    I would expect there will be some regression for Giolito, at least initially.

    James Paxton.

    Offseason Targets

    Bauer or something equivalent. With out that any other moves wont matter.
