    May 4th Games

    I don’t believe he has the arm for it. He was drafted as a CF.

    White Sox vs A's 3:05 PM

    How are people convincing themselves that the Sox should trade depth away on a team that desperately lacks depth everywhere else. This is crazy talk about moving Vaughn or Eloy.

    2021 spring training of non mlb ready prospects

    I wouldn't look at any of it seriously. Look at Spencer Torkelson - he's only 1 for 20. They just need to get back to playing every day. Judging these guys on 10 to 20 AB's isn't anything when they haven't face live competition in over a year. This minor league season is going to be very interesting for not just the Sox but all 30 teams.

  5. And Charlotte innings = White Sox innings? There's literally no harm in letting him start games in Charlotte, unless of course you find it necessary to give those innings to Matt Tomshaw instead?
  6. Didn't Katz have him completely rework his delivery? Still has an option left, so let him go to Charlotte.

    Thanks! I took it on an angle because I was getting a lot of glare.

    No, didn’t want to make it too permanent - just bolted into the wall. Maybe down the road I’ll do something like that.

    Kind of tough because of the glass, but if you want to see a specific guy just let me know and I’ll post a close up.

    Gotta be this for me. Took roughly 4 1/2 years to complete. The vast majority were acquired in-person, with a few purchased from a dealer I trust.

    What's happening with incoming Cuban players?

    That ranking is being based off of an extremely small sample size in which Cespedes struggled. However, I do think he’s much more of a wildcard than people think. It’s been a while since he swung the bat competitively. Just because his big brother was a superstar for a few seasons, doesn’t make this guy on the same level. I’m really looking forward to where the Sox start him and how he performs.

    So maybe we don’t need another reliable starter after all

    This obviously will cause a drop in offense, but the bigger concern regarding the pitching isn’t guys getting shelled or failing to go 6, it’s the worry that many of these guys will have difficulty adjusting back to a 162 game grind coming off a 60 game season or not even pitching at all (i.e. Kopech). There’s a high likelihood we may see an increase in injuries because of this. Edit: As far as a summary, I’d expect a decrease in slugging and HR’s potentially by a decent amount. Seems like the ball will be less bouncy than years past. They use some data from Korea when they changed the ball as a comparison. It’s a good read.

    Did We Go Cheap Not Signing Another Bat?

    Except Cespedes checks so many White Sox requirements: - was sought after many years ago - old, aging veteran - has a family member in the system

    Did We Go Cheap Not Signing Another Bat?

    Would not surprise me one bit.

    Just Wondering

    Very strict. Not sure how the Dogs got away with having limited capacity though.
