    Madrigal Done for 2021

    3 major injuries in 3+ years when you are young is a really bad thing. I'd say Nick has one chance left. If he gets even a hang nail after this, he'll never be an every day player again.

    Is Leury's time almost up

    With Goodwin around, there isn't as much need for Leury. Mendick has shown to be playable in the OF as well. This is probably his last hurrah for the Sox.
  3. He's not a bum. He's just young. Very effective in MILB. Sox used to lose to guys like him all the time. With our sh***y line up today, I'm not as confident as the bettors are.

    Grandal Vs. McCann

    Can some one win a silver slugger award hitting .154?
  5. If the Sox win 1 of next 2 games, we should be satisfied. I've always been a greedy jerk though. I thought Lambert showed a little in the 2nd game. Still, he should have thrown a less hittable pitch on 3-2 to that lefty in the 2nd inning. 1st was open and the next batter was hitting .126.

    Lorretta's Lounge renamed after TLR

    The worst part is she still works there. 60 F**king years. They really do deserve our scorn for this. Some times people show you who they truly are, in the smallest of ways.

    Yoan is back baby!!!

    He's working counts and hitting it hard. When they won't give in he walks to first base. YM's defense is really good as usual. When his doubles turn back into homers, he'll be a top 10 player in this league. I'm confident the homers will start very soon.

    5/26 Cardinals vs. White Sox

    Tommy Edman is really lucky. If we played the Cards again tomorrow, he'd find out about another unwritten rule. The hard way.

    Attendance would surge. Each fan guaranteed a home run ball.

    Yoan is back baby!!!

    Yeah, he's elite. Why don't we put him in RF and bring up Jake Burger.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    Add Jake Burger to the DH list. The guy had 2.5 years off, never played above A ball, and is now slugging .661 in AAA Charlotte

    don't care about his homer total nearly as much as his walk total. nick could be really good if he walked 10% of the time.

    Marshall Needs To Be Sent Down

    Would like to see what Tyler Johnson can do.

    5/11/21 -Crochet's First ML Win - White Sox 9 Minnesota 3

    Best change up I've ever seen DC throw to strike out tough lefty and end threat. Looked like GC was throwing a bit harder as well. Nothing to say about Bummer, except he seems to be stuck in auto pilot now.
  16. Brian Goodwin is a good pick up. Hits lefties and righties equally well with some pop. Can cover center ok. Platoon with Engel, and platoon Leury with Eaton. With our pitching we'll be fine.
  17. Mendick mania. Put him at short and Anderson to CF. Too bad TA is a star already. 2-3 years ago it could have happened
  18. 2.7 WAR in 24 games for Buxton. Jeez that's good. Only guy in the league as good as Robert in center defensively.

    5/8/21 Chicago White Sox @ Kansas City 6:10 PM CDT

    I would much rather have George Hamilton on the roster. Oh wait, he might be dead. Still.......

    when i was a kid, 40 starts and 250-300 innings were very common. The flame out rate of pitchers didn't seem much higher than today. I wonder what would happen if pitchers were asked to pitch a little more. With medical procedures what they are today, there might not be much of a price to pay physically. Teams with just a few good pitchers might be able to compete, and fewer pitching changes would speed up the game.

    Sox might get him for less $$ by reworking this years contract as part of the deal. Carlos has already earned the 3 million.
