    Midseason Report Card

    Post by Guest on Mon Jul 16, 2018 4:24 pm

    HitterOPS
     Abreu, J0.752D - He is he hurt?  What a pathetic OPS
     Sanchez, Y0.710B+ - Doing exactly as expected; the plus is for all those triples
     Moncada, Y0.739C- - Has been very disappointing, but still plenty of time to fulfill his promise
     Anderson, T0.716C- - Improved in the fiedl and might hit 30/30
     Davidson, M0.768C+ - and dropping
     Engel, A0.575D - Grade A athlete, grade F hitter
     Palka, D0.748C+ - the new age Dan Pasqua
     Garcia, L0.727B- - Proving to be a very useful player
     Narvaez, O0.771B - Very good 2nd string catcher
     Garcia, A0.840C+ - Still a question mark
     Tilson, C0.623C- - Has some on base abilities.  Assuming extreme lack of power is a fluke
    PitcherERA
     Shields, J4.43D - But his acqusition was one of the biggest "F" in franchsise history
     Lopez, R3.91B - Reasoanble performance for his first full year
     Giolito, L6.18D- - Gritty bulldog performance combined with youth save him from "F"
     Santiago, H5.61D - I assume he has some trade value
     Covey, D5.69F - seen enough
     Volstad, C4.91D- - Well his ERA is under 5
     Rodon, C3.56C- - Seems to be on his way back
     Soria, J2.75B - But looks like a "D" whenever I see him on TV
     Fulmer, C8.07F - He should never start a big league game again
     Fry, J3.99B+ - Exceeding all expectation
     Avilan, L3.95C - Can he complete an inning?
     Jones, N2.55D - Can't close, can't stay healthy


    Team has a whole deserves a big fat F.  The team has more questions now than they did in the spring.  With a couple of expectations, the young pitching has been a miserable failure.  As a whole, the young hitting has not shown any improvement over last year.  Among the veterans, is anybody performing as expected other than Soria.  The break out of the year is Dan Palka and his 234 batting average.  Now I know why the Cubs felt the need to ditch Renteria

    You may have answered this on another post, but which of the persons you graded here do you believe will be on the team in 2020?

    ThAnk you for asking

    The smart ass answer is none of them.  Contrary to what another poster is saying, it’s not 4th place that bothers me but lack of individual progress

    I think Anderson and Moncada will still be your DP combo.  Hopefully living up to their All Star potential.  This horrible 2018 probably means Garcia and Abreu are gone.  Either traded or allowed to pursue a richer contract elsewhere.  The rest of the outfield is not worth mentioning.  I feel Yolmer Sanchez will be traded b4 then because he is out of place at 3B.  If Matt Davidson bat keeps disappearing in the 2nd half, he will disappear from the roster 

    As far as pitching, who knows.  Lopez is probably a lock, but no one else is.  Sure guys like Giolito and Kopech and Cease and a few other will still be around.  But will the be warm bodies filling out a roster or hot stars pitching for a playoff spot.  Guys like Alex Fernandez and Jon Garland were brutal at the beginning b4 figuring it out.  Hopefully these kids are a little quicker 

    Part of me thinks Chris Sale is resigned for 2020.   But why bother if this year pushes everything back to 2022.

    The same Chris Sale who basically disappears in August?

    Chris Sale by month for his career

    SplitWLW-L%ERAIPWHIPSO9
    April/March1970.7312.82229.20.9889.6
    May2240.8462.67239.10.93611.2

    Sept/Oct11160.4073.782261.24310.8
    True Aug is his 2nd worst month followed by Sept.

    However his ERA is still under 4.00 so hardly a disappearance.

    Last year, 2-2 in Aug 4.38 ERA; 2-2 in Sept 3.72 ERA.  8.38 ERA in the playoffs

    So yes he does have a stamina problem.  

    Will be 31 at the start of the highly doubtful year of 2020.  If your point is "WHY WASTE THE MONEY"; the point definitely has merit.


    PS, if OUR White Sox are still south of 70 wins next year, I wouldn't waste my money on Sale either.  I see him more as a hired gun than a building block

    Sale turns in to Quintana during August and September, pitches just well enough to lose.

    Comment and year end grade in red

    HitterOPS at Break
     Abreu, J0.752D - He is he hurt?  What a pathetic OPS  YES HE WAS, Almost got back to 800 OPS.  As of now, I let him walk - C minus
     Sanchez, Y0.710B+ - Doing exactly as expected; the plus is for all those triples  Lost his bat in the 2nd half.  Defense justifies his bat at 2B - C
     Moncada, Y0.739C- - Has been very disappointing, but still plenty of time to fulfill his promise  Hit worse in the 2nd half.  Should move to 3B.  Still could be a star.  Still can be the Avisail Garcia of the infield - D plus
     Anderson, T0.716C- - Improved in the field and might hit 30/30.  Ended at 20/26.  Another disappearing bat in the 2nd half.  Needs to avoid getting HR happy.  Trade bait if the White Sox need to rebuild the rebuild   - C minus
     Davidson, M0.768C+ - and dropping.  Might be better off pitching.  Remove his performance against KC will make you want to vomit. - D minus
     Engel, A0.575D - Grade A athlete, grade F hitter  Bat improved in 2nd half at a whopping 668 OPS.  Played gold glove caliber defense.  I play him until a real CF can be found - D plus
     Palka, D0.748C+ - the new age Dan Pasqua.  Praying he's not a one year wonder in a year that really wasn't all that wonderful - C plus
     Garcia, L0.727B- - Proving to be a very useful player  Except he can't stay healthy.  Non factor after all-star break - D
     Narvaez, O0.771B - Very good 2nd string catcher  Just missed leading the team in OPS.  Considered to be a negative with the glove- B
     Garcia, A0.840C+ - Still a question mark.  Absolutely stupid not to shut him down mid August - Incomplete
     Tilson, C0.623C- - Has some on base abilities.  Assuming extreme lack of power is a fluke.  Lost out to Adam Engel - F
    Pitcher
    ERA
     Shields, J4.43D - But his acqusition was one of the biggest "F" in franchsise history  Amazing he lasted all year- D plus
     Lopez, R3.91B - Reasoanble performance for his first full year  Only ERA under 4.00- B
     Giolito, L6.18D- - Gritty bulldog performance combined with youth save him from "F"  Pathetic bullcrap performance in 2nd half couldn't save him - F
     Santiago, H5.61D - I assume he has some trade value  ERA under 2.00 after Aug 1 - C
     Covey, D5.69F - seen enough.  Outpitched Giolito and Fulmer.  Still a bottom of the barrell MLB pitcher in my opinion - D
     Volstad, C4.91D- - Well his ERA is under 5  Collasped 2nd half - F
     Rodon, C3.56C- - Seems to be on his way back  Brilliant august.  Brillant august, 9+ERA in September.  Hope he isn't hurt again - C minus
     Soria, J2.75B - But looks like a "D" whenever I see him on TV  Traded
     Fulmer, C8.07F - He should never start a big league game again  No change
     Fry, J3.99B+ - Exceeding all expectation  No change
     Avilan, L3.95C - Can he complete an inning?  Traded
     Jones, N2.55D - Can't close, can't stay healthy  No change 


    Team has a whole deserves a big fat F.  The team has more questions now than they did in the spring.  With a couple of expectations, the young pitching has been a miserable failure.  As a whole, the young hitting has not shown any improvement over last year.  Among the veterans, is anybody performing as expected other than Soria.  The break out of the year is Dan Palka and his 234 batting average.  Now I know why the Cubs felt the need to ditch Renteria

    8th time in franchise history where OUR White Sox failed to win 40% of their games.  Percentage wise, 5th worst franchise record.  Playing .433 ball after the break saved them from battling for the worst record.   The 100 losses was very sad considering they had 5 chances to avoid that 100th loss and choked.  Again, the team deserves a big fat "F".  Not only for stinking up the joint, but for setting back the rebuild by at least two years
