    Burger may or may not pan out as a 3B, you can make the argument that he was a risky pick. You can make that argument for any of them honestly but that has been covered I think pretty well here. You cannot, however compare Courtney Hawkins and Jake Burger objectively. One was drafted out of high school and the other had three pretty successful years of college ball. Call me crazy, but it seems like Burger was a better RISK that Hawkins was. I'm going to say that he was drafted for his hitting ability. Whether or not he can ever be a gold glover at 3B is at best 50-50. Can he be an adequate 1B/RF/DH, seems pretty likely. Project him for 2020 or so. As for your next point, well you are at least half correct IMO, Walker, Hawkins and Barnum were never likely to work out. Tim Anderson is doing alright early on, Rodon and Burdi are injured and Collins is working his way up. Should they/could they have drafted better players, absolutely ... I'm pretty sure about 29 other teams feel the same way. You could always call (312) 674-1000 and offer your help for the next draft.

    Jake Burger, 3B? Gold Glove? 50/50?

    The White Sox have been targeting a certain type of hitter with Burger, Sheets, Collins. We have been over saturated with free swingers for a very long time. They are going for guys with plate discipline and high OBP's from what I can tell in the draft. Moncada is in that same mold although he K's a ton. Then again so does Mike Trout so that doesn't worry me too much.

    Rutherford is looking like a solid get for a bunch of relievers! Isn't walking much but is raking in the middle of the lineup at Winston-Salem.

    Another guy quietly putting up good numbers in our system is Laz Rivera. I liked what I read in his scouting report too.

    Your welcome, 50-50 may be a little high, but when your talking to GP facts aren't real important.
    Having said that, maybe we should actually see him play a little before we pass judgment?

    "His fielding is superb, with that rocket of an arm to go with it. Remember, Burger won the Gold Glove at third base in 2016."

    I don't know anything about the guy who wrote this, could have been his cousin or something.

    The bottom line is the kid hasn't really played so, until we see him on the field none of us really know.

    Luis Gonzo with a 3 run Double! That dude has been looking great in our system. Robert up for his 2nd time. 0-1 with a groundout to the pitcher.
