    ESPN: Sox most interesting & best team.

    In talking about LaRussa, the article mentions how he has established a strong clubhouse. It’s interesting to me because that was one of the concerns raised before the season started, and I haven’t heard any mention of it until now. He obviously has some on the field issues to address, but it seems that the atmosphere in the clubhouse is an asset and LaRussa is part of the reason why.

    That's a White Sox SWEEEEEEP!

    Good teams find a way to win games like this. Loved Yermin’s 2-strike hitting on that slider through the shadows. Loved Hamilton’s gap-to-gap break and speed. Loved Lynn’s bulldog mentality with almost nothing left in the tank. Loved Tim’s steadiness as the undisputed leader of the IF. Loved Hendricks’ guttiness and guile. Loved TLR’s bullpen management for this entire series. This team plays with a mission and a plan. And they play real baseball. Go Go Sox!

    balls and strikes umpiring

    There is nothing more instant about an automated strike call compared to its human-called counterpart.

    balls and strikes umpiring

    I’d happily give up replay for an automated strike zone. The latter has a far greater impact on the game.

    Lopez optioned

    Every team does.
  6. Well, if I am telling you anything, it is that Jose is unlikely to play worse in 2021 than he did in 2019.

    Better than 2020?

    You forgot to mention a player.

    Andrew Benintendi traded to the Royals

    I wouldn’t want to give up any prospects to get Benintendi, so I prefer Eaton on that basis alone.
  9. I agree. This is the kind of analysis statistical projection models cannot possibly account for. It is the kind of dynamic assessment that one can only get from actually watching players play. And no, this is not meant to bash PECOTA or any other stat-based projection.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    A very young and promising team just simply was not quite ready for the bigger stage. Great building season and very valuable experience gained with this late season and playoff run. Lots to build on.
