  1. The White Sox traded a utility player they failed to protect on their 40 man roster for a nice left hnaded reliever and a 34 year old reliever who had good peripherals last year but also sucks because one guy knows he sucks. We can be done talking about it.
  2. QUOTE (GoSox05 @ Jan 9, 2018 -> 09:51 AM) If we are only going to have TV personalities as President, let's do it right. Guy Fieri for President. Welcome to flavor town America. Oh god yes
  3. QUOTE (wrathofhahn @ Jan 10, 2018 -> 01:42 PM) Just think that guy used to be a GM in another life. Actually, it was this life that he was a GM of a team, which is somehow worse.
  4. This is not a good time for the White Sox to be buying someone like this unless they get a ridiculously discounted deal, and that's not going to happen.
  5. The Sox waited until June last year to claim Alen Hanson, but they seemingly always end up with a skinny utility player who has no real discernable skills other then the ability to (likely) play multiple positions. This year, they got him in January.
  6. QUOTE (ptatc @ Jan 9, 2018 -> 09:31 PM) How do you have a blown save while not allowing a run to score? QUOTE (CWSpalehoseCWS @ Jan 9, 2018 -> 10:40 PM) Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure if a relief pitcher enters a game with the tying run on base from a previous reliever and allows them to score, they get charged with a blown save, but the run is charged to the previous pitcher. Correct. In his blown save against the Angels, Soria allowed a hit to Ben Revere that scored an inherited runner. That was the only hit he allowed in 1.2 IP. He also allowed 2 walks, but one of them was walking that Trout guy intentionally, and he struck Pujols out with the bases loaded, so it worked out. He actually had a great outing that day other then allowing 1 inherited runner to score. He's human and inherited runners will score.
  7. In 5 of 7 blown saves, Soria allowed 1 or 0 runs. Relievers will give up a run here or there. He only really had 2 very bad blown saves. That's why context is important. Roberto Osuna had 10 blown saves this year but I'd take him closing games for the White Sox in a second.
  8. QUOTE (cjgalloway @ Jan 5, 2018 -> 04:26 PM) Ending the year at Winston Salem would be good. Then we can set eyes on ending in Double A the next year. Then by year 3 we can try to end the year in the MLB.. If Robert starts 2019 in AA, he is ending the year on the MLB roster, barring something terrible happening.
  9. QUOTE (GoSox05 @ Jan 5, 2018 -> 11:27 AM) Has to end at some point right? If the Patriots kicked out Bill Belichick, something tells me he would try and get a job with a rival team. He seems the vengeful type. I am a big fan of Sean McDermott and think he's going to be a good coach in this league, and I know that Belichick is 66 in February and probably only has 5 years or so left as it is, but I would dump McDermott in a second to bring Belichick to the Bills.
  10. QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jan 5, 2018 -> 09:43 AM) 1. Yes. 2. No - it isn't cheap to sign guys who aren't that good. You pay a lower overall price, but you wind up like the 2015 and 2016 white sox - expensive and crappy. 3. Yes, would much rather see Sanchez at 3b. These are my answers as well.
  11. Yelich is arguably better than Adam Eaton and is signed to an even friendlier deal than him. Eaton netted Giolito, Lopez, and Dunning. What do you think Yelich is going to cost?
  12. QUOTE (Lip Man 1 @ Jan 4, 2018 -> 02:51 PM) Little: There's an old saying...if something happens once it's a fluke...twice, it's a coincidence...three times? You've got a trend. They weren't required to be mentioned but would it have killed them to do so? Especially since the drought was longer than Boston's? And especially considering their previous omissions? Let's put it this way, the folks in the front office already know about it and have contacted that organization about it. They obviously felt it was meaningful. The Red Sox fan base is probably ten times the size of the White Sox. The Cubs are the same. Anywhere you go in the country, you will find an abundance of Yankees, Red Sox, and Cubs fans. You will not find the same thing with the White Sox. This doesn't really bother me either.
  13. QUOTE (FT35 @ Jan 4, 2018 -> 03:01 PM) I’d do these 3 players: 1. Rodon (injury prone, Boras agent, will be an expensive risk to resign.) 2. Rutherford (5th or 6th OFer for us if we got Yelich—Yelich, Jimenez, Avi, Robert, Delmonico?) 3. Basabe (further back in the OF mix than Rutherford—has a lot of developing to do and we don’t develop hitters well.) If this isn’t enough, either agree to take on a vet salary or say goodbye—no increasing the exiting prospect talent. Marlins would want nothing to do with Rodon, and Basabe's stock is way too low. If the Sox are to acquire Yelich, it would take out a huge chunk of the prospect talent pool, and as was alluded to above, if the guys they keep get hurt or don't progress to the point you need them, the Sox are suddenly running out a skeleton crew again. There is enough talent in the minor league system that 2019 should be competitive with an eye towards 2020 of being a division favorite. This always brings me back to the Stanford Marshmallow test, and if the Sox can pass it, they'll be rewarded very well.
  14. QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Jan 4, 2018 -> 02:32 PM) Phil Rogers arguing for the White Sox and Yelich https://www.mlb.com/news/christian-yelich-w...sox/c-264272478 His argument is poor. The timing of Yelich does not feel right for the Sox.
  15. QUOTE (bmags @ Dec 29, 2017 -> 04:31 PM) And quite frankly Castillo having a severe regression like that will recreate fears that our pro scouting is garbage. I just don't understand the -3 defense projection for him. His worst season was 2015, and he spent time with 3 teams that year, so I can understand a lack of familiarity contributing to that, and he was still at 4.3.
