That was some play. Robert can make that play - when he gets comfortable with playing the outfield fence - Eloy definitely needs help playing the outfield wall - too. I suspect experience will help both of them.That Bellinger guy on the Dodgers could teach Robert a thing or two about attempts to rob home runs...
actually, it was a 7 year sentence and without those trades it would have been much worse.Would anyone here trade Giolito and Robert for Adam Eaton and Chris Sale in their primes?
The White Sox kicked ass - in their roster depleting trades. The only problem is we fans got a 3 year jail sentence.
why do you think i was so angry when they only managed to pick up one decent pitcher during the off season? they had exactly ONE proven starter and even he only had one half good season under his belt. this is a lesson that everyone should have when they were 12.As these playoffs continue to advance, we're learning one valuable lesson. Pitching matters. Big time.
Well no doubt we have some young talent with serious potential, but potential and 25 cents still only equals two bits. The Sox need another proven veteran starter. I think it's essential for us to advance deep into any playoff scenarios.why do you think i was so angry when they only managed to pick up one decent pitcher during the off season? they had exactly ONE proven starter and even he only had one half good season under his belt. this is a lesson that everyone should have when they were 12.
The Sox need to extend Giolitto - and sign a new #3 veteran pitcher (or a #2) - I think the Sox can man starters 4 and 5 out of the pitching stock the team currently has.
what is important is players won't easily bond with a guy who is 76. and why would they?Tony La Russa - I respect his baseball career - and was very big on him during his White Sox career, but at 76 -I'd have to think this is a joke - Or Jerry wants to hear from Tony about who he thinks would be a good manager. Anyway, it is something for the Sox to do while they wait for the World Series to be over.
wouldn't you have assumed they had already picked someone out BEFORE letting ricky and don go?Well - White Sox! Don't just go silent - it's not like you actually have a plan other than finding out what Jerry is going to decide to do.
It's probably the biggest reason why I've felt that the Sox have a legit shot at signing him and why Jerry may be willing to open the checkbook a bit more. If for whatever reason Bauer finally decides he wants a multi-year deal, then I feel our chances will be reduced dramatically. Another one year option potential would be Charlie Morton. He's up there in years and in no way should be considered for anything beyond a single season. But he's a wily vet who should be able to give whichever team he ends up with a good 20+ starts. Tampa does carry a '21 option for $15 mil on him, so it's quite possible that I typed all this for nothing.Trevor Bauer likes one year deals - I think that does make it much more likely that Jerry will try hard to sign him. With the back log of young pitchers the Sox don't need long term deals for starters - just time to sort out who will be their future starters.
