    I can't imagine Vaughn would get up any slower than Madrigal. They had the same college pedigree coming into the draft, and Vaughn actually carries the higher hitting upside. Vaughn will see High A, AA, AAA next season. 2021 he will probably be up to start or early on.

    Any interest in a fantasy basketball league? We have 3 committed so far from the bulls forum. At least 7 more and we can do it.

    25 a piece.

    Should also look to see what the Mets price tag would be for Dominic Smith to take over 1st. Power left handed bat thatís under control for 5 more seasons.

    I actually saw an article today that suggested the SOX should pursue CC Sabathia and I thought - wow, KW may be at it again

    KW is a punching bag for Sox fans. He gets blamed for the bad trades while he is given little or no credit for the 2005 WS or for the good trades.

    Personally, I like the way KW stood up to Sale, LaRoach and Eaton and got rid of Ventura. Good things have been happening to the organization since purging them. Thank you KW and Jerry.

    KW's criticism is warranted. One WS and what since? He's one of the reasons why we had to blow it up.

    The white sox are the worst drafting team of all time, essentially. It's really depressing.

    Hopefully that changes.

    Iíd say heís more the reason why we waited at least 5 years too long before blowing it up.

    Have to agree, he was almost always wrong or too late.

    Is that something you read or just a hunch? I'd think there's much worse out there than us over the last 30 years. Baltimore, Detroit just to name a few. Pit and Cincy come to mind as well without actually looking at any data.

    I think it was more Ventura not wanting to come back than it was K.W. getting rid of him.

    About the draft picks -
    more often than not the first rounders (last 20 years) have not panned out = Borchard/Honel/Allen/Ring/Lumsden/Broadway/McCulloch/Poreda/Mitchell/Walker/Barnum/Fulmer
    A few mediocre = Anderson/Fields/Beckham
    Yet to be determined = Collins/Burdi/Burger
    Gonzales and Phegley have been contributors (on other teams)
    Chris Sale has been pretty damn good as has Anderson
    Madrigal and Vaughn remain un-proven at the ML level.
    Way back - McDowell/Ventura/Thomas/Fernandez were all pretty damn good players, albeit chosen by another regime.
