    Catching problem solved

    Post by Guest on Wed Nov 25, 2015 2:31 pm

    White Sox sign Alex Avila to a one year deal worth $2.5mil

    Apparently the White Sox think they can make Avila re-live his fluke year in 2011.

    From 2012 on, Avila looks like a lefthanded Tyler Flowers

    that said, I would think an Avila-Flowers platoon would push a 750OPS

    BTW, Soto is now an Angel, annaheim that is

    The one I would like to see brought here to see if he could replace both Avila and Flowers for the full time job is Wilin Rosario.  Not sure what happened, maybe he is another Miguel Olivo in the clubhouse, but Colorado cut him.  He looked like a stud for years to come a couple three years back.  Anyone know what happened there?

    At least they signed this experiment for only one year.

    I know that Colorado gave up on Rosario as a catcher because of his lousy defense.  He can hit, though.  Last season, the Rockies were trying to make a first baseman out of him.  Perhaps he's not very good there, either.  I'm surprised that they cut him.  He'll probably find a home in the AL as a DH.  I sure wouldn't mind seeing him replace LaRouche.

    DH and a 3rd C works for me.  Kark would pee himself with a 3rd catcher on the roster.

    The Avila portion might.  He's .780 career OPS v. RHers.   Flowers may not hold up his end though.  He only has a .222 career BA/.660 OPS v. LHers which is nearly identical to his career #'s v. RHers.
    However, since 2/3 of a team's AB's come v. RHed pitching it's more important that the LHed side of the platoon hits decently.

    It is a Sox tradition to sign players coming off injuries. I guess they think there is magic in the air.

    How much "magic" Avila creates depends on how close he can come to his 2011 season (19 HR's, .295 BA). He hasn't been able to in 3 healthy seasons after that, and this year his injuries made for his coup de grace with the Tigers (.191 BA, 4 HR's).   That said, Avila is only 29 yrs old so there's some chance he bounces back and Sox are taking a pretty limited risk at $ 2.5 million.  Avila has hit RHers decently in his career and has reasonably good defensive skills.  I think this makes more sense than the Bonifacio and Beckham signings earlier this year.

    Poor guy; after he won that Tigers/Sox Nomadsfest game a few years back, what else was there to possibly play for?  He had reached the pinnacle of renown in such a short time.  Ever since, he has been heard humming Peggy Lee's hit song.  Since the trade his friends have been singing BTO's hit "Ain't seen NOTHING yet" when they see him.

    Meanwhile Sox fans can continue humming the Blues Magoos.

    The waste of last season had to do with being at or near the bottom of Offensive and Defensive MLB statistics.

    I've never said Beckham had a major role in the Sox's sucking. He was only one of 10 hitters that stunk  this year.  Several (Ramirez, LaRoche, Garcia, Sanchez) had far more AB's and did much more damage.  My beef about the Beckham signing wasn't that it "sunk" the Sox but rather that it showed  muddled front office thinking.   It was the muddled front office thinking about not only Beckham but guys like LaRoche, Samardzija, Cabrera, etc. that sunk the Sox this year.
