    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
    June19120.6132.542910.95510.9
    July16100.6152.542131.05210.5
    August14130.5193.22254.11.06911.5
    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.
