    GOLD GLOVE FINALIST!!!!!


    Just think if the White Sox would have taken Andrew Benintendi instead of Yoan "K" Moncada....


    Now that would be a heck of a defensive OF.  At least 2/3....

    Was Benintendi even offered as part of a deal? If wishes were horses...

    White Sox asked


    Red Sox said NO


    One team now routinely wins the World Series.  The other makes excuses and makes promises about how Winston-Salem is just a few years away.


    On the plus side, Moncada did lead the team in walks and showed that his power and speed are for real.  So obviously its to early to just write him off.  I still move him to 3B

    I'll take your word on that. And I'm not writing off Moncada either. He sure sucked last year though, offensively and defensively.

    Not this off season


    From what I can tell, the plan is


    1) Bring back James Shields at a reduced cost
    2) Convince Eloy Jiminez that spending the first two weeks of the season in Charlotte is good for him
    3) Build a bullpen on the cheap.


    but most importantly, how to they make the second best offer to Manny Mancado and/or Bryce Harper

    He sure did.  But then, so did Harold Baines in 1980

    I still argue that bullpens, with the exception of a closer, are a crapshoot. Who in their right mind would have thought that no names like Cliff Politte, Neal Cotts, and Damaso Marte would have anchored the Sox bullpen in 2005? Not to mention not one, not two, but three changes in closers.

    ADAM ENGEL ROBBED!!!!!!


    I wonder if Rick Hahn realizes he could have 2 potential gold glovers in 2019.  Engel in CF and Sanchez at 2B.


    But than neither really hit enough.  But still the question remains, why is it out to carry a crap glove just to get an extra bat in the lineup, but not the other way around?


    and considering how crappy White Sox bats usually are, might as well play the ones that excel defensively
