  1. Honestly this is the dumbest shit. You are taking at bats and defensive reps from players, pitchers aren't getting work. This is not cool

  6. I get that in the first week of Spring Training coming off a COVID year that there are a limited number of pitchers and pitches available each day, but if we're going to make up rules and allow a team to end an inning early, then how about allowing the runners to go back out on base to start the next inning?

  9. Actually I think if you cancel an inning the next inning should start with the same scenario with no outs.

  11. I completely agree with you here. I don’t think Joses words mean or should mean Jacksquat but Vaughn and Kopech both absolutely need to be in AAA to start the year. And that doesn’t seem to be the current narrative, and that is.....shortsighted and dumb.

  12. Their website's biffed up, for sure. Mrs. Stanky and I got scheduled for Tuesday (today) on Saturday at 6 AM when they put the openings up, but our second shots are at different (but closeby) stores than the first. I got the Moderna jab and no adverse reaction 9 hours later.

  13. Its almost like he is going out of his way to be stupid. This kind of shit is going to keep this thing around for a while. The same people who support this shit are not going to get vaccinated because it's the flu after all. Here in my wife school district the parents want the school opened up 5 days a week, full time without any restrictions. They are now complaining that the kids have to wear masks. For those people I have a shirt.

  15. Just amazes me that Williams didn't run as soon as he hit it. You'd think constant hustle should be imbedded in a fringe player's head.

  19. I got my vaccine apt with Jewel tomorrow. Woot. So far Jewel is allowing you to select either the two-shot model or the J&J single shot. So Walgreens opens their APTs up in the morning it seems. Jewel just randomly drops there's. I have been scouring the website trying every 5 minutes for a few days. I finally got lucky.

  22. This cannot happen at all. I don't know about you but I don't want to see Lucroy in the lineup multiple times in the ALCS and WS.

  23. I have conflicting info on that. I have no idea how old the kid is. The White Sox are signing him though whenever that is. As of now, the next period is scheduled for July 2 2021. It's expected to be moved back though because current period would only be 6 months then. If that happens, the players with deals for this July wouldn't sign until next January. Then the players (who already have commitments) for J2 2022 wouldn't be able to sign until January 2023. Meanwhile, the collective bargaining agreement expires in December and there could be an international draft anyway.

  24. I certainly wouldn't let the player's union dictate my roster/service time strategy and so would not advance either of these young pitchers to the active roster coming out of Spring Training. It's not like you're going to get a union concession because you did. I'd send them to Charlotte with instructions to use them together as a tandem starting pitcher until they were comfortable in that roll. Lopez and Flores can serve as your long men until the young starters are ready or you need a fifth starter. The Sox seem hellbent on bringing them north but no one knows if or how much they'll be needed during April and early May or if they can handle it. Why would you burn service time on such a high risk strategy. I don't get it.

  25. What do you like about him? He's 31. He put up a .600 OPS last year...and his career OPS is .729. He's basically Leury Garcia and we already have him.

  26. White Sox Jimmy Cordero: The White Sox bullpen is stacked with intriguing pitchers about to embark on their first full seasons. We're highlighting Cordero because his bloated ERA (6.08 in 26 innings) tells a misleading story about his 2020. His sinker-slider combination suppressed contact at an elite rate last season, permitting him to rank in the 96th percentile of exit velocity. That didn't prevent him from allowing 11 hits per nine frames, but we don't think that will carry into the new year. As an added bonus, Cordero has the best short-sleeve game in the majors since the days of Joel Peralta. https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-breakout-candidates-one-player-from-all-30-teams-whos-ready-to-step-up-in-2021-season/

  27. i know this is just a part of your anti-jose bit, but if the Sox need a year of extra service time from a 1B then they are even more embarrassing than I thought. Vaughn is going to be a star, but first basemen aren't getting 200+ million dollar deals these days.

  28. They were very competitive in 2013, but no playoffs...especially second half, they really ended the season on a high point and then carried it on into the following year. Two World Series in a row in 2014-15, then they REALLY spent a lot of money in 2016 and 2017. Too many injuries, Gordon fell off the map, etc. Let's not forget how the Yordano Ventura death set that franchise back, not unlike the Fernandez situation with the Marlins, he was always going to be their future ace and franchise pitcher. Not unlike our 2005/06 situation. They broke the franchise record for payrolls every year from 2013-2018, afaik.

  29. Watching on TV I was yelling at him to run and bitching about it when he got tagged at 1B! Send him packing tonight.

  30. I wonder if a fight will break out for rolling innings. I guess a fringe player who losses chances for big hits may get angry.

  34. I think that's even tough to do optically. Punt one of your aces during a World Series run? And then if someone is acquiring him that means they're a contender. So you're punting to a competitor. More likely he plays out his contract and then Jerry offers 5/150 or something while he goes out and gets 6/200. It will Machado 2.0 -- we made an effort "the money will be spent". etc.

  37. I'm not sure why you dont like him...I feel like Mendick can be a nice part of the surge. He plays all infield positions...plus defensively...put up .740 OPS in the minors. Seems like a near perfect utility player. If hes got to play two weeks he'll be solid...but not so good he wants to leave for starting spot.

  38. Me too. Looking forward to see his PA's; hopefully a free & easy swing.

  39. Also, a second round pick of the Rangers in 2012. I saw him play yesterday (?). He looks pretty athletic. A Boras Corp. client who'll make $900K if he makes the squad.

  40. Nick Williams, we picked him up around same time as cespedes. He had some decent success hitting years ago when he first came up then fell off a clip. But sox paid him a decent amount (900k) so they clearly saw some talent there.

  41. It's 2021 my fellow Sox fan. We aren't solely using ERA as an indicator of pitching value.

  42. After three years we’ll only have Anderson, Eloy, Robert, Moncada, Vaughn, Madrigal, Cespedes, Cease, Kopech, Crochet, Kelly, Thompson, Vega, Bummer, Heuer and anybody like Giolito who may or may not be signed to an extension to build around. It’s almost like it ended before it even begun! Hopefully they all pan out because there is no way they will acquire another player over the next three years!

  43. Renteria burnt Cordero into the ground, curious how he'd be if managed effectively but may not make the 26 man (shouldn't)

  45. Why would you have no hope for Sheets? I wasn't a fan of that pick but he's absolutely useful now. 16 homers and 83 RBI in the Southern League is impressive. He's dropped 20 pounds and implemented swing changes. Rival scouts think he can be decent in an outfield corner. He's enhanced his profile quite a bit.
