Sox inked their recent 1st round draft pick, Colson Montgomery, for the full slotted bonus amount of $3,027,000 - kid getting paid.
He and the 2nd pick are expected to be the next left side of the White Sox infield Both are athletes who can field, throw and hit.

My old lady wanted to go for a walk so I missed his in game interview. Will have to rewatch later.

well hey, you can't rewatch it if you never watched it! :tongue:
I say good for you - for going on the walk with your wife. The Sox can afford to lose a few games from your lack of attention, but they can't even lose games at any decent rate - whether I root from them directly or not.

Yoan Moncada gets moved to the 5th spot in the lineup - just at the same time he goes back to being a slugger. How fortuitous is that? White Sox - all the way baby!

Yoan is finally back to making my pepe hard on a consistent basis. Daddy like.

FYI, I'll be dark for the rest of the week. Heading out of town and not bringing the laptop (hate, just HATE using my phone for stuff like this). Let's get back in the winning groove here - tough series coming up against the Brew Crew. Should be some titanic pitching battles. Go Sox!!

I know you called for him very early on while he was red hot that he would end up as a .250 hitter, but you're saying you actually saw this coming?
not the specifics but his eventual decline and his quitting doesn't surprise me considering his age and what he's been thru. i think he reached his dream and after being sent back down it deflated him.

Next year the DH will be back - all over baseball and (new labor negotiations) and Mercedes will be back for that. I could do without the drama - thank you.

What the hell is going on with Mercedes? He's retiring now? The f*ck? We already had one basketcase in Lopez...We filled our quota.

Frankly - my greatest worry right now is Jimenez and Robert coming back and trying too hard - with little production.

There's something else the White Sox are doing with Rodon that logically affects his next contract value - the Sox will not pitch him without 5 days rest and they prefer pitching him on 6 days rest. Now this could be an intermediate rehab step - building Rodon back to a possible 200 inning pitcher, but it is also an indication that Rodon pitchers better on a week's rest. Rodon - therefore has an injury history problem and a stamina problem. Some team will be willing to over pay him, but which team is going to watch out for his welfare?

I'm not worried about trying too hard/pressing or any "crappy play excuse" stuff like that. Both dudes have played baseball their whole lives. The key is that they are healthy. If they are clear to play, they need to play because we sorely need them. If they're still injured where they can't play, then don't. Simple as that. But if they're good to go...Rust should be shaken off and timing regained within a week imo. Everything else is excuses.
