    Rebuilding isn't an excuse for sucking

    The above link lists the probable Opening Day roster, assuming Q & R don't get traded


    What is absolutely sickening is that Avisail Garcia is listed as the everyday RF


    This kid is as big as an ox and he can't even slug 400!!!!!!


    Unless he's on the Sammy Sosa diet and training regime, cut his useless ass.


    The White Sox have plenty of luke warm bodies to throw in the outfield.  Garcia has already flunked his audition.


    Maybe they should try to convert Garcia to catcher.  Supposedly he has an arm.  Plus the KARK has been told for the past 3 weeks that catching doesn't matter on a losing time.


    And just think of how great it would be if Avisail Garcia turned out to mean Johnny Wockenfuss in spanish.

    Garcia only had 42 games in RF last year, and since he couldn't catch anything but routine flyballs, he shouldn't even get that anymore.  Liriano, even if he can't hit much, needs to get the vast majority of the time in RF.   As to your constant obsession about Catcher, where was it last year when the guy who got more PA's than anyone else (Navarro) put up a measly 606 OPS ?  In his last season with the Sox in 2015, Soto put up a 708 and in limited action last year it was an 809.

    Rebuilding doesn't mean playoffs either. And in this league, if you don't make the playoffs, you suck. And sometimes, even if you do make the playoffs, you suck.

    Glad your impressed by a 809 OPS in 78 AB

    In 2015, Soto matched the 809 in 78 AB.  Then had a Navarro like 606 in the next 78 which is why he was 708

    As for Navarro, another subject Trumped him in 2016
