    We are only a few weeks away from those long Fall/Winter/Spring days and nights without major league baseball games to watch.

    4 games back in the loss column with 28 left to play...to two teams.
    Very tall odds against that happening, but it would shock all those who wrote the Sox off if it did.

    GIDP in key at bats has been another terrible habit of the 22 White Sox hitters. I guess it is hard to tell a slow power hitter to bunt with men on first and second so there isn't much a Manager can...

    Sticky: Minor Leagues: Colas could benefit from weight loss and physical...

    Colas could benefit from weight loss and physical conditioning (as most of us could...) but even as things stand, he might be a better option than Sheets as a DH and occasional RFer.
    Then again,...

    Sox are competing for the Division in mid August.
    I for one am going to try to enjoy watching the games that will decide the Division.
    Eloy and Vaughn are carrying this offense on their backs....

    Eloy has had only 96 at bats this season. Not sure how you can say he is under achieving. His career stats reveal a player that can hit over 30 HR/year.

    I would stand pat, bring up Colas to play...
  7. Discussion: Hendrik is no longer lights out 1-2-3 in the 9th....

    Hendrik is no longer lights out 1-2-3 in the 9th. He walks batters and gets lit up too often. My own sense is that Liam Hendriks will give up the long ball in critical games, as he has several times...

    Liam 's record is 1-3 with a 3.47 ERA. Despite the amount of saves he has, my sense is that he gives up too many HR in critical games. Recall the Field of Dreams game. I'm not sure how to quantify...
  9. Discussion: Liam Hendriks gives me as much confidence closing...

    Liam Hendriks gives me as much confidence closing out big games as Alex Colome did. It seems like (although I have not checked stats) Henriks is worse than most other Closers we have had at giving...

    That is the best analysis of the situation for the rest of this season Q is an innings eater and a potential spot starter.
  11. Discussion: I know that this opinion may not be shared by too...

    I know that this opinion may not be shared by too many, but I would consider including Liam Henriks in any potential blockbuster trade. Yes, Hendriks was an All Star and overall has been an above...

    Tony has a team that has been riddled with injuries right in the mix for a Division championship. :)Once Grandal and Eloy get back and start swinging it, I they will go on a bit of a run. Then...
  13. Discussion: Blaming the Manager is a pisspoor excuse for...

    Blaming the Manager is a pisspoor excuse for losing games. Every Manager makes decisions that don't work out. I recall AJ Hinch deciding to pitch to Abreu recently.
  14. GDT: If Lynn gives up 3 runs in the first inning or...

    If Lynn gives up 3 runs in the first inning or two of his next start, he has to be pulled. Lynn had nothing today and should have been pulled after it was 3-0.

    When a team is losing it tends to make fans of that team start to point fingers and express some anger, even at one another. Relax men, it's just a game, and face it, with or without a Manager of...

    I have been watching Minor league highlights from out farm teams and am very impressed with no. 1 prospect Colson Montgomery...only not necessarily as a shortstop. Montgomery is a pretty big guy who...
  17. Discussion: I think I would move Eloy or Vaughn. Out of the...

    I think I would move Eloy or Vaughn. Out of the two, I think moving Vaughn makes more sense for a variety of reasons:
    1.) Teams in the NL like the Cubs that need a DH and/or a 1B could be in the...
  18. Discussion: I think that Robert, Eloy, Moncada and Abreu rely...

    I think that Robert, Eloy, Moncada and Abreu rely on one another for emotional support and also for practical reasons given their language barrier. I would think hard before breakiing them up.
    I...
  19. GDT: I am concerned that Vaughn regresses during the...

    I am concerned that Vaughn regresses during the season like he did last year when he did not hit RH pitchers that well. If he doesn't continue hitting, we are probably not going to compete for the...

    The idea that Abreu cannot catch up to high fastballs was promoted by AJ Pierzynski, who has developed a weird kind of anti-Sox mentality. Meanwhile, the fact is that most MLB players nave difficulty...

    deabears34- Thank you for the updates on Yolbert and Colas. I hope Colas moves up quickly as well. Sox could use a young left handed power hitter that has a strong arm for RF.

    True that, and maybe some face saving and job saving were part of Hahn's considerations as well. To me the trade for Kimbrel looked too much like the trade for James Shields. It seems like a lot of...

    I am just guessing here but I imagine that Hahn's priority is to unload Kimbrel even before deciding to make a trade or add a free agent. Until Hahn does a deal for Kimbrel, he won't know what player...
