    The Say Sorry to Rick Hahn Thread

    I'm not sure what we're talking about.

    Wait, do you think my post was made in defense of the front office?

    The Say Sorry to Rick Hahn Thread

    NOTE FROM THE PAST: As I have no doubt this thread will be revived at some point near the end of the baseball season as a part of the time-honored internet tradition of roasting people in hindsight, let the record show that this original post was made on May 1st and refers to a roster that (1) gives regular (and often starting) playing time to all of Leury Garcia, Billy Hamilton, and Jake Lamb, (2) resorted to converting its top prospect, who hadn't played above Single-A, UP the defensive spectrum in order to avoid having to start Nick Williams every single day, (3) has already had to resort to a bullpen day despite the benefit of multiple postponements and suffering only one minor injury to its rotation, and (4) ranks 15th in payroll amidst all of the aforementioned depth-related problems. Thus, while doing your roasting, please keep the context in mind.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    You need depth. It will be a miracle if all five guys stay healthy and effective all year -- it just doesn't ever happen in today's game. It's more likely that two or three will go down than none -- and right now you're looking at Reynaldo and Stiever as the next men up. Realistically it's probably Kopech for a couple weeks the first time it happens, but he's gonna run into an innings limit and disappear a la Strasburg if he has to cover for more than one guy. Good teams (Dodgers, Rays) have figured out how to juggle it, whether it's alternating spot starts for veterans at the back end or younger guys sitting in AAA until the call comes. If you're trading prospects with real value, I guess the ideal target is an MLB-ready but not polished guy in the mold of, say, Luis Patino or Brusdar Graterol, who has the stuff to be a late inning reliever if that's what is needed, but you want to develop as a starter long-term. Basically, a couple more Garrett Crochets. Also Rodon and Lynn are FAs at the end of the year, and it's still Lopez/Stiever up to replace them.

    Who Is "Mr. White Sox?"

    Obviously Leury Garcia. Longest tenured player.

    That was an inspiring performance. Good for Carlos Rodon for reaching his peak throughout so much adversity.
