Re: It's Maddoning

Re: It's Maddoning

Bryant not being healthy wasn't the only problem they had offensively, and it's not going to be the only problem going forward. KB was a huge part. The other aspect was Willy who im 98% sure was playing through multiple injuries. His bat speed was zapped.. someone posted a stat in early august that...

Re: It's Maddoning

This team should just be varying degrees of a hitting beast, even with injuries and long stretches without off days, not a conglomerate of slap-hitting and walks with the occasional power stroke. Something is wrong there. I agree at times agonizing to watch this team. But with injuries and a brutal...

On reddit it was mentioned that on the score someone reported Theo has had to sitdown with Russell multiple times about his partying. Anybody know where I can find a link to this online. Just listened to a bunch of the score interviews from today (gammons, coomer, kasper, dicario) & didnt hear t...

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

What I dont get is how the injury is a deep bone bruise? That doesnt seem pitching related.

Hit by a ball, fell down, bar fight.. maybe.

But how do you get a deep bone bruise that keeps you out since july 18th without some contact?

Geez, I mean, he's had a bad season. No doubt about it. But it's not like a player has never had a bad season (or two) and come back the next year or anything. Maybe he will, maybe he won't.

I wonder if any White Sox fans are looking over at the Mets rotation with DeGrom, Thor, Matz, and Harvey in 2015 and starting to feel a little less comfortable about the future. Or heck, our 2003 rotation with Prior, Wood, Zambrano and Clement. They have Kopech gone till 2020 and the chance Cease i...

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

I just can't figure this guy out. 6 years toiling in the minors, never really doing that much. starts this year hot at iowa, comes up and looks like the next superstar. Not saying hes the real deal but didnt he do pretty well the last 2 years in the minors plus a great Arizona Fall League this past...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Ive said it since he was a prospect that Javy reminds me more of the skinny lightning quick mid 90s Sammy but playing elite up the middle defense. Even mid 90s free swinging Sammy probably had better walk rates though. But thats more than made up for with Javy's defense, baserunning and premium posi...

Now that im rock hard Im dreaming of a lineup of

Bote 2b
Trout CF
Rizzo 1B
Bryant 3B
Schwarber LF
Baez SS
Contreras C
Heyward RF
Pitcher

Even has some nice righty, lefty, righty, lefty, righty balance through the middle of that murderers row of Trout, Rizz, KB, Schwarber, Baez.
