well, you know how dreadfully slow i am to pick things up. (how's that for dramatic irony?)
You are correct - I predicted this outcome.

I think we are supposed to hate him - and he will be the sacrificial goat at season's end.

The Sox have promoted Noah Shultz to AA Birmingham - where the Sox minor league team is a juggernaut. Also going to Birmingham is Jacob Gonzales - last year's #1 pick. With Colson Montgomery at AAA Charlotte - and Gonzales and Brooks Baldwin both top talents playing shortstop - a sorting out needs to occur for who is going to 3rd and who is going to 2nd. Of course, Bryan Ramos is already at 3rd. As soon as Moncada is ready to return the Sox should trade him and pay his salary if they have to - in order to give these young prospects time in the MLB.

The Sox have another phenom at SS in Ryan Burrows who is playing a Kanny at 19 - Burrows is an internation signing from South America. Total package - can hit, field and run.

The 2023 draft class is doing very well as - picks 1-13 - all have moved up in class from their early assignment. George Wolclaw the 6'7" HS kid the Sox took in the 8th round - is batting nearly .400 with OPS of 1,000 (with 50% KOs) in the AZ rookie league.

Both Jared Kelley and Andrew Dalquist have been turned into AA and AAA bullpen relievers - and both have done really well in those roles.

Probably what the Sox need the most for the minor league system is more power hitters - having only Elko in AA and Wolclaw in rookie league. The Sox have a lot of guys who can hit between 20-30 hrs a year if they max their talent.

what's a 'ko'? (serious question)

Here's a random thought: I don't think there's any chance this team comes even close to sniffing a playoff series win in the next 5 seasons.

How sad is that? 12/30 teams make the playoffs each season and I have little doubt we will not accomplish this.

Would love to argue against this take, but I can't. I just can't.

The White Sox reddit has decided that the White Sox are no longer worth talking about...so it is full of people posting pictures of their pets. LOL. God bless the internet.

read a suntimes article on grifol. what caught my eye was his remarks about faith. what he essentially said was that he believes everything happens for a reason. either things will get better or they won't. he doesn't get upset over things for this reason. interpret this to mean either we win or we don't. no sense getting worked up over it. in other words, this is the LAST freaking guy i want leading my team! if he's let go ... no big deal to him. when the sox lose ... well, that's a shame.
didn't anyone actually interview this clown before hiring him?

There's very, very little good news these days when it comes to the White Sox, so here's something a bit on the positive side:


Not sure if you need to be signed up in order to read the article - if you can't here's the skinny - the Sox now have 4 players in the top 100 pipeline.

#9 - Noah Schultz, our 6'9 L/H pitching goliath, great stats so far and was recently promoted to AA
#12 - Colson Montgomery, SS/3B, been in the top 100 almost from the day we drafted him
#41 - Drew Thorpe, RHP, acquired in the Dylan Cease trade, he's been killing it in AA
#90 - Edgar Quero, C, acquired in the Giolito/Lopez trade, also doing very well in AA

It's definitely been a while since we had four in the top 100, hence the teeny tiny bit of positive news.

We’re on the f*cking cusp of team infamy and a few more and it will be all time futility. This is insane.

I just don’t care about prospect rankings. Our golden boy moncada was the number 1 prospect in baseball for over a yr. You need to be able to draft and this franchise absolutely sucks at it.
