    Players for 2018..Stock Up...Stock Down

    Not really too early to talk about this....my thoughts

    STOCK UP....
    1. Nicky Delmonico....I don't think anybody expected him to hit this well. Seems to be more than a fluke.

    2. Matt Davidson.....really had a nice season going....should get the full shot next year

    3. Renaldo Lopez.....seems to be legit despite limited action

    4. Avi Garcia......seems to have turned the corner...possible trade piece,but, good season

    5. Yolmer Sanchez.....hitting well enough to keep the super sub role for awhile


    Stock Down....

    !. Tim Anderson......he has come back as of late,but, still some concern

    2. Adam Engle,Jacb May,W.Garcia.......nice gloves,but, no bats

    3. Carson Fulmer......I hope he can become an effective reliever

    4. Tyler Saladino......I know he's been injured,but, bat has left his game

    5. Y. Moncada....not overly concerned.......but concerned


    6. Pitching staff......very few to salvage for next year...can't we just cut Shields ?

    Shields eats innings and he is owed $$$, he'll be around awhile.
    I wouldn't mind bring Gonzo back either.
    Rodon should be #1 next year, but he can't be counted on.
    Lopez #2 ?

    That looks like another long season from the pitching staff. Better than this year, but, nothing to contend with...

    2018 won't be a whole lot better than 2017, lining the Sox up for another top 5 pick in the '19 draft.
    2019 is when the boys, Kopech, Hansen, Collins, Eloy Burger and Robert should be ready to play.
    Assuming Moncada finds his bat - that should be the beginning of good things on the south side.

    Problem with waiting till 2019 to let our prospects TASTE the big time ..is then they have to get use to the spot light.
    Call them up in 2018 let them take their bumps and see who rises to the top

    I'd expect to see some of them in August/September for their taste of the big leagues.

    Predicting the 2018 rotation (from CSN CHICAGO) not my idea, but pretty close to one I posted a few days ago.

    Ace: Carlos Rodon

    Hayes' take: He's made the mental gains he's needed to and is beginning to trust his dominant stuff.

    No. 2: Reynaldo Lopez

    Hayes' take: He has electric stuff and will be in the MLB all year.

    No. 3: Lucas Giolito

    Hayes' take: He's simplified things in the minors and has started to find his way after a rough start at Triple-A Charlotte.

    No. 4: James Shields

    No. 5: Free agent to be named later

    Hayes' take: It's a placeholder. The Sox may do something similar to this year and sign someone like Chris Tillman to try and trade later.

    What about flamethrower Michael Kopech, you ask?

    "It would not surprise me at all if Kopech was up next year, towards the end of the season, if he can do what he did this year at Double-A," Hayes said.

    Im most excited to see; Davidson, Delmonico, Moncada, and Avi next year. If those 4 can all produce night numbers, the offense could be looking pretty good as the team starts to round the corner in 2019. Not sold on Delmonico yet, remember Gordon Beckham lit the world on fire as a rookie than fizzled out. Hoping for the best though, also I feel like Avi could go either way in 2018, continue to improve and even find his power stroke? Or literally fall off a cliff and go back to be a replacement level outfielder. Ideally he has a .300/400/.500 season and clubs 30 long ones!

    With ALL the talent we think will be ready by 2019 or 2020..Im more worried about Anderson..is he our next Beckham..We need a SS in our system that can take over for Anderson if he doesn't pan out..or if he breaks a leg or something..DEPTH..

    I think in the off season of next year we go for this guy hard...............Manny Machado (26)
    Resume: Three All-Star appearances and top 10 MVP finishes, career .811 OPS and 28 WAR
    Trending: Even. Machado’s bad/good 2017 (.741 OPS before the break, .967 after) won’t threaten his status as 1A, behind Harper.
    Outlook: Machado may not get Harper money, but his market may be wider, as upper-middle class clubs like the Angels, Giants, Cardinals, Phillies and Rangers figure to join the big-market behemoths for his services
