    What about 2018 pitching

    Please tell me James Shields will NOT be the Opening Day starter.  In fact, can he please be gone b4 Opening day


    Given the status of Rodon's shoulder, I suppose Giolito would have to be the current front runner for Opening Day.


    I don't see, nor do I advocate pursuing a veteran starter (aka win now guy) this winter.  That can wait until 2020 when Chris Sales is suppose top be a free agent.


    2018 looks like the year of the freshman and sophomore at the G-spot.  Out of necessity, OUR White Sox will probably need a Doug Fister type or three just to eat innings so we can delay the start of the service time clocks on the Kopechs of the world.


    If there ever was a time and place for the old Chuck Tanner idea of 3 pitchers pitching 3 innings a piece once every 3 days, I would say 2018 is the time and the Chicago's South Side is the place.  That or some other type of starter tag team arrangement.
