    Maybe Yermin can give some hitting tips to Yoan.

    Are Jason and Steve on the road with the team or are they in Chicago? Just wondering the covid protocol

    Spring Training thread

    I couldn't agree more Rabbit! He's always had the slider and it's a good pitch. But the 4-seamer, well that seems to be dancing all around the plate right now. It's really throwing the batters off and That's the difference right now.

    2021 Bullpen Hype Thread

    I agree. This absolutely is the strength of this team - More so than the offense even. And like you said, an arm goes down - there's a couple ready to replace em down in Charlotte. But the thing that will make this bullpen lethal is that it will be managed by LaRussa.

    Extensions You’d Like to See

    Yeah I could see either one of those happening. I'm definitely ok with those extensions

    Jimmy Cordero...the forgotten breakout candidate

    With the announcement of Kopech and Crochet starting the season in the pen and figuring a 13 man pitching staff? Dont really know how TLR will do it - not to mention what to do with Lopez? Unless Cordero has a lights out spring he's the odd man out. No room on this staff.

    FS: Preseason 2021 Top 30 Prospects List 1-30

    This prospect list is so good! There really is alot of talent in this system. And dear God! That Kannapolis rotation. That's going to be fun to watch!

    Spring Training thread

    Fegan interview with Rodon, "Whitesox only have talked to me about starting." Maybe the sox are serious about a 6 man rotation? Maybe having Rodon starting the 5th day and Crochet or Kopech starting the 6th?

    Did We Go Cheap Not Signing Another Bat?

    Al's cheesy beef says his source says that Cespedes to the whitesox is a real possibility. Would start 4 days a week rotating between LF, RF, and DH. NSCishek made it sound like a possibility too. Maybe this needs its own thread.

    So a Giolito extension...

    Yes. Well said. There are to many variables that can affect that right now or as they say "we have bigger fish to fry."

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    Padres /Dodgers rivalry will be fun! Great addition to a very good staff.

    FutureSox Top Prospects: Starting Pitchers

    Aaron, are the Bears really getting Wentz? If true, I hope they get some draft picks in return. That's a huge contract he signed. I agree with you on this group of starting pitching.

    Getz is promoted to Ast GM

    Who was in this position before Getz? Nick Hostetler is still there too right?
