"They're not gonna win in in twenty twenty one and so like if they go you know maybe it makes more sense to keep you know. Keep hunting and try to build for twenty twenty two or twenty twenty three when there will be fans like i totally get that but the whole import stuff is bs as the part. That really frustrates me With regards to the way some of these teams are approaching including one that you mentioned. We'll have a quick nod to avery. Williams i don't know a lot about them if you do. I've about yeah. He is a lefty who was picked in the sixth round of the twenty nineteen draft. He's got some rookie ball experience when she was quite good but he did not make their prospect list. Coming into this year for the white sox But he's also done back to say the the big strikeout rates and everything twenty two year old rookie ball camps that down a little bit so just a little throwing honestly as a one to one. I thought it would have been quite good. Even get a little prospect thrown in. I say good on yeah Texas while on there to even get that thrown. Let's move on. You mentioned the reds. They are making moves. They're making moves to move on. They trained rice salad. Laziest to the angels who are acquiring all the glitzy i for knowing ramirez and a player to be named later and it doesn't matter i'm going to be honest. We're going to talk about nearly rumors. Not gonna factor in the reds at any fantasy capacity whatsoever. He's going to be the closer and save thirty games now but that said that but for got there. Yep yep me ligustrums. But anyway he goes out to the angels a team that you know i keep strong tabs on. I want them in the playoffs. I root for them in a weird way of like make good moves guinness trout the playoffs. I like this move. I like getting glazed. They've got some few bullpen pieces but they can still use help there. I know everyone talks about their starting pitching but any pitching works as far as improving there. And i like this move. I think some people kind of missed his twenty twenty by a lot of stuff floating on twitter like abu sucks like during this trade and it was like i guess you miss that you know he really settle himself back down in twenty it's twenty three innings but he really looked like the basis of several years ago after a major homerun issue in eighteen and nineteen He escaped it in eighteen. He added to two thirty eight year. Eight despite one and a half homers per nine but then it caught up in nineteen when he had a one point six mark in a four sixteen year a shit ton of blonde same slash losses Twelve losses in two thousand nineteen. But this past year. He cut it back down two point. Four which is in line actually the best of his career of course two months season but to seventy four a point. Ninety one wimp. Thirty one strikeouts twenty three innings l. Glitziest was a hell of a lot better than what we'd seen the previous two years in terms of raw skills. I like him going out to the agency. I think this is a good pick up for that. What he what he say. It's a fantastic for them. Especially because it doesn't involve a long term commitment on reliever you know because we've seen guys have big ears or a few years and then they signed that long-term deal there. You're not getting your money's worth so that you know iglesias is a free agent after the season. So they can you know. Just use them for this year. If he's great maybe they q. Oh him for next year In you know they put him on that one year eighteen million dollar deal but their offense offenses legit. We've known this for a while right so their issues have been in the bullpen And in the starting rotation and now they just short up kind of the back end of the bullpen. It really hurts mike. Mayer mayor share. It's yeah it is just myers is a mayors for a while too but it's just my But yeah that that. If you're not those idle great to try to but glaze is gonna come in and handle that job at least off the start. It's nice again looking at their team. Context to put myers in more of a fireman position. And then you can have a place to go to They you know they could still use some starting pitching There was a brief rumor by the way that that pass in retracted about them. Maybe looking at dj mayhew which they desperately do not a. it's not it's not legit. It's not legit so if anyone was wondering if we were going to discuss that there's a discussion. It's not a thing. where the hell would you play. Second david fletcher moved fletcher to the outfield enjoyed l. Goes back down to the minors to you. Know learn nat nat I i don't. I don't really see that if anything you sign you signed like a stopgap plus braided marshalls on the cusp. I like fletcher's in feel like he could play anywhere by the way. I think it could be a gold vulgar. Basically any position. I think he's best used in the info. It's just excess. That don't have that money to pony up for lemay hugh. I'm not saying that that means you should automatically get bauer instead but what it does mean to me as it. Don't use that money on lemay you use that. Unlike two starters Instead what i think they should do is by one of the rebuild included or paxton one of the could be aces by one of them at a discount. Pardon me paxton would be so sweet there. I i think. I think i would be sharp. Because they're not gonna cost you nearly as much and you get you know getting them on the on the downside there as far as price and they could pan out and you don't even need them to be the ace got bundy and heenan at the front end there. I think one of them and then like a a way down type of guy like You know shoemaker. Who's been there before. Of course maybe like really honest guys who have been injury issue guys to a rotation that is filled with injuries. You guys like to me Does gonna have to approach it. There's not enough high. Go every kid. Sinaga like i like to knock. I have no problem with that. That would be fine but as far as money goes. I don't know what their money situation is. You get more bang for your buck by funny. I mean i..
"white sox" Discussed on FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball
"I don't see that like i think. Probably mid to low threes type guy. You know with strikeout inning Y- i i li- in gonna get a lot of wins now. Moving from texas to An upstart chicago team. That i think really only main whole right now is is the bullpen. I think they're gonna you know if they're the team that gets andrex. That's that's gonna bad would be nuts. Because i actually think their bullpen sneaky idea what you're saying they don't have name. It's sneaky good but it's you know i think it's like one or two pieces away from being a dominant one and when you have like the guy hendrix that'd be just i mean you know the if they got let's say they got. Let's say the bradley. You don't even need to go and spend the hendrix money. Go get bradley. And put him at the end. That penn Either a setup role or a closer and you've got you know tigers team that's still rebuilding a royal team that still rebuilding in indian team. That doesn't seem Concerned necessarily about winning trading lynn. Or yes exactly. They have to. They have to move What about what about brad. Hand who also would not come in hendricks money but then gives them that. Left to go with aaron bummer. Oh actually i skipped over jason. They got they got a couple of days left. The is not as important. I thought their second left. He was a guy named burt offers. Bummer govern fry. I was thinking it was just bomber and florez junior. Not go in the get a guy like bradley In honestly the way they've been going at it i wouldn't be surprised if they hendrix but i think bradley is a great consolation prize. I mean they don't have a ton of money on the books like it's not like this movement. They're not making money yet. In a lot of youth aren't going to be making the money they would have had. They not certain unit signed long-term deals. I mean they've gone moncada Eloy anderson ro bear all on. You know deals so it's not like like they have the potential if they wanted to go out and pick up a few big free agents you know and pay them money long term. It's not like the keys on their team right now. We're going to get that much more. Expensive giolito yep yep totally Totally see that with the white sox. They're setup brilliantly. Let's talk about what's going back to the rangers here. Because like i said i really truly see this as a win win and those are fun deals you know when you feel really good for both clubs gala warm and fuzzy about the trade dane. Dunning going back you know. He was kind of forgotten piece of that Adam eaton lucas. Giolito deal with the aforementioned reynaldo lopez because he was recovering from tj at the time. But he's a first round pick You know who was a legit prospect in all that coming out of the university of florida. So i said with tj and being college. He's a little bit older twenty six but the rangers still having for the full six years. That easy is it with them until twenty through twenty twenty six. So what are we thinking about. Dane dunning after nice old debut thirty four innings but three nine seventy or a twelve whip. Thirty five strikeouts in thirty four innings. This is a solid pickup for the rangers. Yeah i love it. I think it's a really nice fit for him to be able to go to a park lake taxes and and now he doesn't have to worry about being taken on rotation if you know the he struggles a little bit give them some leash because they don't have much in that rotation anymore other than my boy kyle gibson Do you want to highlight what you said there. Because normally people would say i'll go on and texas year five so called life with the new one called It believe in new globe life. It looks like a barn from the outset But it is. It's become a huge pitchers art To the point where the hitters on the team actually complained publicly.

Kim Ng Makes Baseball History
"We'll somali i. Can you talk about your own relationship with kim hang. How did you get to know her. I started reporting on the dodgers around two thousand eight or nine with espn. And i'd see her on the field and she always was just kind of calmly standing there and you know just seemed like whatever interaction she had with people were seemed to be efficient and short and so it kind of intrigued me. Who is this person. So we just got to talking like. Oh this is this is coming. She's says gm and all of a sudden she's telling me stuff like we've got this kid kenley jansen as a catcher. You really can't hit those we put them on a mound and the results are interesting. Clayton's working on a slider molly. You should really check it out. But the where she would say it was so matter of fact and so dislike whole-home that that's kind of what stood out to me about her and then we've kept in touch over the years. How would you describe her personality. What she like completely unflappable. I think the first thing that needs to be done is. I've got a really familiarize myself with all. The ins and outs of the players. Deadpans are totally cool under pressure. Like the person you gonna call if you were kidnapped and needed the ransom delivered by noon with no you know without tipping off the police or anything else you. She won't be there. Where are we who these players are. And you know. That's that's at this point. The nuts and bolts of the job. Well for those. Who don't know that much about kim. And can you tell us about her career path so she played softball diversity of chicago. She was an infielder. She was really good. I was really a a sports nut love to play and she then became an intern with the white sox and twenty one years old working in the white sox baseball ops as an intern and at the time the other white sox were very good club had a lot of good young players and it was really just about learning and soaking it. All in absorbing all that i could and by the time she was twenty nine she was brian. Cashman the yankees assistant general manager and that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. They won titles ninety eight ninety nine and two thousand now. Let's be clear here. That had she been a man she would have gotten a gm job somewhere else. But that didn't happen. Molly you about saying and how. She operated differently than her peers in l. a. Can you tell us about that. I mean that that dodgers organization was by a bunch of guys who were so emotional so yell at each other so in their feelings she was just sort of just like standing there. Like i can't believe you guys and so it was just like toddlers running around at her feet. Two thousand five. The gm position becomes open and she interviewed for that job. What happens there. She was by all accounts. She was right there and franklin court the former owner of the dodgers wanted to hire her her pedigree spoke for itself. She had three world series rings. She had sixteen years in the business and the owner frank mccord. He wanted the credit of hiring the first female general manager. But what i was told later was that he was scared of the backlash of being the first guy to fire a female general manager. Because as we know it's a cutthroat industry n. gm's they don't their shelf life long even talented ones and so that was one of the reasons he was too scared of that. I guess the mcchord years got really ugly and about i say i wanna say two months before. The dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Because of a court drove the team into the ground. She got out of there and went to work with joe. Torry be again demonstrating how smart. She is molly. You know as well as anybody that kim has been talked about for basically twenty years now as the person who is going to be the first woman. Gm in baseball. Do you have a sense. For how many teams have considered her or interviewed for this position. Because yesterday when i wrote my story i published. I said as far as we know. The dodgers angels the padres the giants the mariners. They've all any reader and within like two minutes. My story going up. Somebody with orioles texted me. Oh we interviewed or to like it was just like everybody is interviewed her. Just sit there going through this anymore. They're just putting me through this so they can fill their quota or whatever i'm not gonna put myself section but she just did not give up and that's really the way a lot of my career has gone is just every step of the way it working as hard as i could give you my nose to the grindstone and just you know getting to the next level but i think this is so valuable to any of us who do have specific dream in mind about something. We'd like to do one day. And that's you know when you call close and you don't get that job that you desperate for just got a flick flush it and let it go and not let it break you to the point where you're not going to try again.
Kim Ng's journey to Miami Marlins GM serves as inspiration
"And It's will gonna become be like throwing the darts. major's highest You gotta be aggressive. ranking You woman gotta make in baseball a bunch of operations birdies all the time hired we finish.

Yankees and The one thing Los I will Angeles say about Tiger Dodgers Woods. Michelle I Steel am very on nervous the significance about tomorrow. of this higher I know is it for in the bar and always five shots back, and I know he looks pretty comfortable out there. Tomorrow makes me very scared because of the amount of holes he has to play. And because of the break that's gonna happen between the finish around two and the beginning around three. The temperature's supposed to be a little cooler tomorrow. So as that temperature is cooler, the longer the break is between when he finishes and starts again, the more likely his back is to go. You know what? I don't think we're gonna do this. I don't think we're gonna do this and like that really makes me nervous. As far as Tiger Woods goes because we know his history with his back again. Cons concerned. About if Tiger will hold up. wise second round play resumes today. 7 30 Eastern, You could see it on ESPN. You're listening to SportsCenter all night on ESPN Radio and the ESPN app I'm Jim basketball. This weekend's cause football schedule dented by covert 19, but there are a host of intriguing games today. Her street reached Davis on SportsCenter on the match up to look out for you know, we always kid about these weeks when it looks like, Oh, it's you know, status quo. Everybody wins and moves on. These are the weeks where a lot of times the favorite show up, and they just kind of go through the motions and somebody ends up getting upset. Don't be shocked to see two or three upsets. I think a team that needs to be careful is Florida. The Gators are coming off an emotional win. Florida is thinking about, you know. Hey, we're gonna be in the mix here. We're trying to get to Atlanta. Be careful against Arkansas. You have fully paid Frank's coming back. I know Sam Pittman. Has covert as the head coach. He will not be coaching Berry. Autumn takes over, but our console manages the team that's believing and dangerous and Florida's going to need to forget about that Great win against George and get ready to play physical team against Arkansas Berry. Autumn, has a win as a head coach in the swamp when he was the head coach at Missouri Love to pull that upset again. All right. Let's bring in Heather Dennis to expand that college football conversation. And Heather. It's not the elephant in the room. Rather, the herd of elephants we know about the non bubble leagues like Major League baseball that finishing the NFL is powering through because Barbossa different dynamic regarding the covert impact. Six ranked teams postponed or canceled, including top ranked Alabama against L S U the Ivy League pulled the plug on winter sports Covitz numbers. Jumping across the country. Perhaps it's continuing to alter the schedule. Perhaps some schools are leagues just can't finish. But what sense do you have of how the coronavirus ultimately impacts this sport regarding getting the season finished? A champion crowned, I think as he seeks Missioner Gregg. Thank you summed it up the best this week when he said that he was shaken, not deterred, and that phrase has been repeated. Throughout this week, because I think it exemplifies the general feeling throughout the sports decision makers honestly from coast to coast, and while there has been some talk and acknowledgement This week that the conference commissioners are at least discussing the potential of pushing the college football playoff back if they need to. The general consensus is that everyone wants to reschedule these games. Play them and stick with the timeline and crowned champion on January 11th in Miami Gardens, Florida as plants. Yeah, that's that's according to actions that seems to be the sense you get. How about Whether we focus on a trio of ABC games today, we'll start with the prime time kickoff number. 13, Wisconsin at Michigan. That's a 7 30 Eastern kick off. The Badgers haven't played three weeks. The covert 19 outbreak there, including the quarterback and coach. Health wise. Where are the Badgers? Well, that's a great question. I don't know that they even know the answer to that. I mean, when you have players who cannot return any sooner than 21 days because of this return to play progression. That's the question. How do they look? What do they look like? I mean, for over a week, they were talking about just how they were meeting
Marlins Name Kim Ng MLB's First Female General Manager
"Huge story today from the world of Sports. The first we have a first Ah Qiming. Who has worked in baseball. Dating back to 1990. She was an intern with the Chicago White Sox. And then she was an assistant general manager with the New York Yankees, And she was insistent general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and she's been interviewing and interviewing, interviewing, and today she became the first general manager. Was a female. Who is also Asian. All of it in Major league baseball history. She's gonna be kind of work for the Miami Marlins. Now I was thinking like Did I probably not gonna be able to get Kim on the air tonight because, you know You might be a little bit busy, but you know, the Chicago Cubs have a Rachel holding. And Rachel was a stud softball player, and she has been with the Cubs now. Ah! As a hitting structure in the minor leagues, and she does a lot of technical stuff. And so I reached out and she was happy to come on. She's tweeting about the happy she was for Cam and she joins us now, Rachel, I know this was an absolutely huge day for you for for Kim for the industry as a whole. Oh, yeah, of course. I mean, I know Kim personally, So you know, no one is more deserving of this job, and all you have to do is look at her resume toe understand that she's Probably overqualified in in a lot of ways, just really, really happy for her proud of the Marlins. Just pretty exciting stuff. Were you expecting this to happen? Once you heard that she was interviewed like this has got to be the one I didn't know she was interviewing. I actually, um maybe I just didn't follow it too closely, But I know her journey has put her in an assistant GM position. A few times, So I figure any time there's a GM opening. She should be considered for it So, but I didn't know she was interviewing personally, But so it was, like a total surprise for me, and I kind of dig it. Yeah, For sure. Like just for those who don't know Kim's career path. Just Ah. Thumbnail shot of it. She was an intern with the Chicago White Sox that started back in 1990. Then she became an assistant general manager for the Yankees and 98 left New York to go to the Dodgers in 2001, as in the same position. Then she interviewed to be the GM for the first time in 2005. Ned Colletti got that gig. And now it's been 15 years trying to become a GM. And here she is, What do you aspire to in the game, right? So you got a sweet position right now. But if you know, 10 years out, if you could pick something, any idea what it would be You know, I get this question a lot. I think with the way that the baseball season has gone first, I'd like to get a full year of baseball under my belt. No without a pandemic or anything else kind of derailing that, but You know, my my passion has always just been being in the cage and influencing players. And so you know, both of those things I'm very, you know, fortunate to have the position that I have right now because it allows me to both of those things. As for where I go from here, I mean, as long as I'm not sitting behind a desk and I get to be interacted with the players and put a uniform on and be in the cage. I think that's zef innately where I wanna be.

"white sox" Discussed on A's Plus
"Have to say there are still concerns about the offense. Oh. Yeah. Definitely. I mean I think they would prefer to. Not Have, gone in three and five and getting whatever it was under two hundred probably the last the last week of the season. So as a team A guy like Stella is going to be pretty important. Not only because he has experienced not a world series season. He. Just the way that he can kind of way, and this is something that a lot of the do but. A lot of as hitters had really high strikeout Sotos. This season. Cells not a guy he strikes out, but he's also not a guy who doesn't strike out because he puts. Always in play early in the counts work along count not afraid deeper as as we know, really strive to make starting pitchers work and get into another team open. And with a best of three series, I mean they. You know theoretically would have a chance unless they just go down really quickly it gets starter to see to get into that bullpen a couple of times and I think for them like. A one game series. Maybe you. You don't feel comfortable. You don't feel as patients just because you know everything is so immediate. That maybe just feel like you can't can't be as as patient. As comfortable as they usually feel in their. In their normal approach I, think. From that from that aspect of having this short series will help but mean to your point I would probably show a lot better if they I do think that last game health. So I'm not sure you feel the way but at least being able to come out here and score runs in and you know put the down ten hits I think it wasn't in the finale that's than going in like they did last year. After, a couple of losses within scored one run and three hits and scoring with minutes position that previous a couple of games I think they'd gone. Three for twenty three or something like that. It wasn't good. Yeah. It was really really really bad. So. Yeah. That was that's a press receiving. Chris Davis is going to have a Roy. Curious because obviously, they're facing a left-hander game to. but he has. In the limited the very, very limited. Over the last month he Hasn't had any. It's aligned rise. It's the other way. Yeah. He looks better. He looks better doubt in his five first last fifteen. Linked to seventy five hours previous fifty games or something he's he looks like he's coming around. We're GONNA. See the kind of power I don't think he'd be hitting necessarily. Clean Up. But. He could have a rule He's you know especially with the left start I mean how great a story would that be I think everybody on the as team is route so hard for Chris Davis he's. been with the team for a while, which is always a. One. Longer tenured guys and everyone just loves him. You know struggles, Kinda make you. I. Think has made everybody feel firm even more. So when her? Story I do think he is we see him against the left-hander. We could see him pinch hit. I think against. lefthander. So That would be interesting. Know what they're. Really we did see some good signs in recent days from seven. I think I think I can't especially. Yeah. That was pretty I. I forget the exact numbers over the last the last four games at Seattle series but was something like six eleven. and. You know he's he's such a sort of quietly key guy in that light up because he does hit cleanup or fifth depending on where they they have all set and he's just east it's almost so automatically is going to be on base one or two times a game and he was doing. This season. Getting hit by pitches and he wasn't hitting the ball the way that he did last year. But I think you know even if you get a couple of games out of him America series at Hamilton. Think that's pretty key to yeah. Yeah. Of course, it's coming you. Cannon Grossman really for me had been the most consistent hit or some. Up until there was that, you know unexpected. It was a five day hiatus with the corona virus positive tests but also remember there were a couple of games that were postponed the week before that the protests. Were not on the field for a long time and that really I think that carried over until most of the school month in those guys are starting to come back Ramon Laureano owed few glimpses of. The as to get him going obviously be Steve. Keep choking up. But Yeah there. quietly. Sean Murphy has been just getting on base lot and doing his job. He seems like he's getting better and better, and he's magnificent behind the plate not much of a talker we get a little frustrated with Sean. I think sometimes because it's not necessarily most forthcoming when we talked to him about things like pitchers and stuff but. He. is also somebody I would keep an eye on he's got a little bit of postseason experience. That last year in the wildcard game doesn't seem to get rattled by much and. Man He is. He is very, very good. Great Right now, they've got some they've got some interesting pieces, some of whom are heating up. Yeah Yeah. He's just another guy that can just kind of popcorn at any point and he doesn't have to get strong enough that he doesn't have to get it exactly right to to put a Balm Gabbard. It's hit a home run it. Again under the kind of Lens or microscope of a short fussy series said one or two swings and really make a big impact. We'll be back with more with me and Matt Kawahara talk about the as wildcard series in just a moment. But to follow all of the chronicles postseason coverage go to. Critical.

"white sox" Discussed on Pros and Joes with Frank Kaminsky
"Order. It's a Denver Defense Without von Miller too. So it makes you wonder if. Tennessee offense is gonNA run into some issues this year without. Lying. I think they just caught the whole by storm is here. Yeah I live Tanna. Zanele Tannehill look like a guy that was going to be a backup quarterback presses current and he just walked his way to multi million dollar contract. That's an interesting division and they look like a nine and seventeen when you that division this year. So it'll be interesting to see how plays out but colts don't look good Jackson looks better than expected but still not great. So. Yeah I'm actually really looking forward to seeing how Robinson Luxury Jacksonville. Nice busy at a solid game like rushing wise and a couple of I believe and. That was his first game as an undrafted free agent. He didn't even he was fourth stringer until two weeks ago. Yeah. It's cool to see from Illinois state. So you know. Close to home for us, but one other interesting stat is that both the Jaguars and the titans have the only two running backs last week to have one hundred percent of the teams carries for the running back. So I miss that that's what I'm saying. It'd be interesting to see if he gets like ninety five percent of the touches again. Yeah. Amazing. It's it's compel they're both compelling starts because the Tennessee defense didn't inspire me the way. I thought they would and Jacksonville's is not got it all. So Dude, how bad their events get over like right after they made that run to the Super Bowl. It's amazing. They were so close to winning and like going to the super bowl now again now, we don't want to do that anymore. It all came crashing down. So quickly, which is one of the things about football is you don't need to rebuild like a baseball team. You can put together a competing team within one or two seasons, and then it can all fall apart with one or two seasons. Injuries, injuries, and regression regressions back injury and regression. That's what it is. Is. There any other richer bigger gods are frank? I mean regression such a big thing like I always fault trap to it. I always take someone who is unlike uptick the year before I draft him in addition progress. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA name my fantasy team team aggression I. usually draft one year before they're God then they regressed to being good. So were you trade you trade them one week before going off As true and then give Dylan a sixteenth round Alvin Kamara keeper for the next I Berman years of all I was tax people were taxing criticizing me when I made that trade. So where I I was. Founded it. Now, you were. Get asked. In Russell Wilson's number five of Alvin. KAMERA's rookie year Russell Wilson marriage straight up because I attack. Adrian Peterson have been caught. Camaros starting to come on strong but he had done I. think he put together like a ten eleven? I. Mean he was solid. I. Thought I was getting a Here's Watch College Belmont I was just like I really liked the way this guy loads when you're on the wall. And then. The rest of the season happy knows like all my God and that's when I found love in for context too. I mean you're GonNa win and YOU'RE GONNA lose trades it happens to everybody what hurts the most knew he was going to be that right? What hurts the most is that Dylan actually wanted Doug Martin and I was like, no, I can't give up that much. Value. Out I thought, I was doing a missile by giving them. A guy was sixteenth around keeper so but you can't don't I've made a lot of trade since then at one he's won some key is. Also will fish rendered will be number one quarterback year. Man We played in US runner up game. So I guess I got sweet revenge winning third place which forever this work but it is a trade that just goes down in History Sean drafted Alvin Kamara in the sixteenth round four out of six leagues. I don't know how he knew about him I. Don't Know How you actually knew to take him. It spent almost a plague though because since then I've been trying to hit the same way I did that and I think I've wasted a lot of guys aren't what made you pick him in the sixteenth throughout what made you say who informed you because I don't think you're at the Saints Practices Right Isis Lock, you know. Like you take a chance on them and it works out for him at work out for us. Open my chance I'm Brian Edwards and all my keep your lease in the last round works out. Is there any other to match ups you guys wanted to talk about? Gobert Zimmerman Minana. New England Seattle Sunday night should be a lot of fun but I don't know I don't really know the defenses are like they're it's mean Seattle got scored on a lot of that game, which is kind of out of hand with passing like crazy and then New England played Miami which I don't really have not. That's a barometer further defense. Yeah I'm kind of interested to see the raiders. Monday. Oh that's a good Monday night game. Yeah. I I want to see how good the saints are without my I. Think The saints when they lose someone like last year remember they lost drew brees and they went six. They got murdered by the Rams in the game that he got hurt by saints and especially like Champagne in that coaching staff I think that they love new challenges. So when something happens like their defense was just fired up when drew brees went out there one of the best events is the NFL I think that you could see that again I think you could see their defense just firing on all cylinders defense is pretty good about the buccaneers. So yeah, I mean they have they.
"white sox" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"And so I'm eighty one and eighty one. I probably would have gone a significant amount higher if they had gotten mookie betts but they did not and I think the future is probably pretty bright but it's probably closer to twenty twenty one and twenty two uh-huh so if you nail it and they do win eighty one. It's been ten years since the padres trays last winning season and that would not be a winning season. Would there be a lot of angst among the fan base. Would they think we're behind where we should be or where we thought we would be a a few years ago or would that be as okay. Well it's progress and this is just the Bridgier to when we really start winning. That's partially dependent on how they get to eighty one and it would definitely be seen with angst in that team like this fanbase really really really wants to go to the playoffs. But if they get to eighty one if if they get to eighty one and the reason they lose eighty one games is because maybe Garrett Richards isn't Garrett Richards maybe Joey Luke as he struggles a little bit guys that like you know going forward you're GonNa have answers in the rotation with Mackenzie Gore Louise Patino and maybe the reason the offense struggled a little bit is because does the catching situation is fully resolved. Ann Lewis Camp Asano is is the answer. Their long-term their their past to a successful eighty one win not accessible athlete when when season but at eighty one win season. That's palatable but the overarching theme I think if they win. Eighty one games is probably GONNA be disappointment. Well even if they win only eighty one. They'll look good doing it. Because the Brown and Gold is back the classic padres uniforms resurrected which I think everyone is happy about including non padres fans but padres fans especially especially feel like the identity of the franchise has been restored in some sense along with those traditional colors. So they've got that going for them which is nice you can read about the padres all season long. Ha will read about them at an upbeat dot com and you can find him on twitter at his name. Ha Castle Aj.

Breads along manager gets tossed immediately, and I'm not even mad at the Durham guys at all. Like I don't care like the Deutz having a great game. I wanted to get him out. I won't make four or five. And. So I start yelling, like I gotta deal hitching side. That's, I mean, that's not cool, and he's like, you don't have enough control to go inside. And so I started, I started off on the unpire and their dugout shot. I was talking to them the whole time. And some benches clear and all that. And in our little Irwin pile. I ended up right next, Austin meadows because he was on first base after I did. And I just look over, are you good? He's he's like, do you do it on purpose? I'm like, oh, I wanted to get you out. He's like trout. I mean, what? What? What's the pointing is? This isn't don't. You see Sobat the up. You're trying to prove a point because you're the veteran and the season you're you pitch and Trump open system..

"So let him let him be slightly below average outfielder you can live with that, you know, especially with that outfit when he doesn't have to play the field. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. I mean, that's the best defensive outfielder in baseball with that without they should all win gold glove. While JJ should finally get his first gold glove. This year more, you can defensive outfielders. He might be the worst hair in baseball like legit. Adamy goal buddies phenomenal out there though. Yeah, he's good outfielder. I mean, that might legit keep him in the league for ten years. You so good defensively. He's Kevin care Meyer basically, like I was just, yeah, I was gonna, say bucks Meyer quite ninety to close off entity. I know you're Meyer only had one or two good years authencity, but I mean, he's he's a freak defensively. Yeah, he's he's sick up there and like Buxton have rallied rear four home runs against. The Yankees than Yankees fans like just going to Witter and look up. Adam eagle Yankees, and you'll get like just a scrolling list of all these Yankee fans. I fucking hate this fucking get who the hell is because he he was Reverend nothing. But bombs off from this year. Yeah. Was it in New York because that means they were hit what like two hundred five feet. Yeah. In New York this. So often you have anything else for days? White Sox, really. I mean, Dave, you were on real man. I mean, I do. You knew you're shit. Obviously. That was never question. I just didn't. I can't believe you came out and just vented it all out. No, this is like I said, this is kind of stuff I love to talk about right now because you know, I'm I didn't blog a lot this this year because obviously known cares read about Atta mingle or mat Davidson head some fans, Rhode Island right here that that read about that read about it a big, big fan over here. You're writing appreciate that one. Yeah. I mean, the White Sox as much as the meathead fans across the country, just assume they're going to be the White Sox because the White Sox been banned for the last ten years. They're, they're going to be really good. Ver-. Who did you emulate growing up in miles city Montana. Norm Charlton, use a lefty reliever for the Seattle Mariners in Billy Wagner Wagner what a great guy will look up after those are pools. I like it those. That's awesome. In an interview, you said that a Montana you played with the same group of guys throughout high school was a different playing with a different group of guys. When you got to the pros, did it take some getting used to. Not too differently. Like we, the group that I played with high school had been gathered since we were around nine to ten years old, and we played all the way through high school together. Never played high school baseball. So we are on the same team. It was out. I love as club, but getting drafted was was really cool. There's a nice dynamic, you know, I'd played on routine slick showcasing. And whatnot. So it's not like I'd only played without long baseball club, but the those guys talk is for accord group and we had each other's backs when you were other guys didn't perform as well when you were. We had to step up a little bit depict the other guy up and so a twelve guys, we, we really bonded over the courses, almost ten years. Yeah, that's phase. I mean, you don't often nowadays, especially they'll travel teams and you know kids starting, you know, playing baseball with, you know, three different someone at age eight. So the fact that you were playing only know high school Bubba with Saint group. So long as crazy when you go from, you know your small town to that to the Yankees? Probably the biggest name in all baseball. They take the eleventh round which is a very high, especially for reliever. And you know what was that process scouts on t. beforehand, they fly out a leg to go with doing a bus trips today in all, then you family like, you know, what was that like and how did it make you feel as a player? You know, you've got all this attention and you had these guys coming in and said, hey, we want to take you to comply the nature lease one day. It started..

"On a priori deal is making half a million dollars more years of that to you. Best power I've ever seen like grade eighty power. He's like Jim Thome in the batter's box. He just hasn't clicked yet, but I would give him all of next year to see if he can learn the hit a lefties slider, lucky fastball, or if he can learn to walk. And his minor league numbers say that he can't. He watch it like a twelve percent clip all through the Myers than this year through a full season in the majors. It was like five, it was. It was like half of what he his offensive profile through the minors was so, but he he's like in that same Davidson's not because he is, but like the fan base fell in love them because he's just goofy dude. Like he's gives great interviews. He's always messing around with the fans like before the game in everything out, give him the entire next year and say, hey, like this is this is your maker break. You're, you're gonna. You're gonna be twenty six, twenty seven like it's do or die. He hit almost thirty home runs this year yet is under thirty. Yeah. In I wanna say like twenty eight bombs in was pretty limited at bats. He only seen right handed pitching for most part. So yeah, you only played one hundred. He only starting in one hundred games. Yeah, if I mean that's he's got legit. Forty home run potential like no problem. Oh, no problem at all is just it's just the, the average is getting on base, really. I mean, he's PS was close to eight hundred already. What if she, if you if he can get, you know if he can hit two fifty with three thirty on base and just do what he did this past season with the power numbers than that's something you know. That's nice. Toyota has at the modern day launch angle guy through and through to just hit home runs as d. h. position which is watch angle thing as much as you sa- brute strengthen. He's built like, yeah, just just like like an Evan gattis type. He's he's okay. He's an exit below guy. Okay. Look up all the like top exit last season. Baseball. It's Aaron, judge Jean Carlos Stanton, and then Dana, polka and ninety. Nine percent of baseball players will have no idea who gang pockets. This sounds like my baby Jay from couple from the beginning of this year when he was smoking balls is right to people, and he just hits the shell of all White Sox fan. Red Sox fans, maybe White Sox fans to Red Sox fans. I like the guy sucks. Like all you can do is play defense. It's like this guy smokes the ball. He just a lot of bad luck last week. Once the season, he had a better clue. He was slashing better than Giancarlo and modern day whatever. You know, pink fans are just like, you know, whatever. Look at this guy. He. A lot. Yeah, exactly. It's so frustrating Pollock seems like that guy for you. So I hope turns out, I mean, I didn't know about him being, I don't know about you all said, I didn't know he was kind of like a, you know, players player, you know, fans guy. That's cool. I like that especially off. Yeah, he like he sends autographs. People send him like fan, Melanie, make sure send everybody autographs back in. When I was out in Arizona this year it was. It was an overcast day randomly enough in that doesn't happen in Arizona. It's always not a communist. The White Sox there. They share a stadium with the dodgers in Arizona, and it was the reds versus the White Sox in Daniel Pollock is up. He had a random like you know how in spring training when a guy comes up to bat, he doesn't have his name on the jersey as like a random offensive lineman..

"You know, just from someone that loves watching contracts while I was watching prospects the bullpens probably the biggest question Mark for the White Sox coming up, everything else kind of place. Honestly, I think the like I, I'm the exact opposite. I think next. Bullpens gonna be lights out with these guys. Really? All gonna be right next year. Great to have you on again. I thought they already two or three years. That's why I was saying they're all one of these guys pitch this year towards the end of the year, they call them all up in Hamilton. Freyre Iago Vieira who they traded for international meaning to the Mariners for he. He got called up this year. He throws a hundred. He's got a great eighty fastball. These are all guys that legit to be shutdown, relievers, Schmeling games for your starting pitchers and are gonna be pitching in the six eighty? No, and they all legit closer stuff. Oh, that's awesome. See, I thought they were a couple of years away. That's all these guys. These guys are all up next year. I think next year they're bullpens going to be like one of the better bullpens in the league, the perfect. That's what I mean. That's why we have you on because I was looking at a year or two way for freyre Hamilton, a couple of other guys. All right. So last last position to talk about? Not assistant at all. Honestly doesn't hitter Matt Davidson. What do you think he's under contract until what I can see is twenty twenty two looks like a pretty good deal for David. I mean, he so met Davidson is if like, he's got like lumberjack forearms if you grew the ball down the middle times it up, he can hit the ball to the moon. He actually, he walked at a good clip this year. I wanna say he had like close in eight hundred psi, but just a strikeout machine can't play the field. I, he's he's very frustrating to meet to watch it for me. I don't particularly like them. I mean, he's not. He's not going to be on the team won. No trying to compete. He's already older. He used to be a while regarded prospect with the Diamondbacks back when he was drafted was like a top fifty prospect, but there is a first round pick yet first round, pick like there's just too much too much swing and miss that is not correctable for him, and I don't know. He just frustrating to me the guy to everybody loves on the south side. Literally, the fan base fell in love with him..

"Came back from that tore a muscle in his quad, and then once we got back from that hit one of his teammates wives hitters day ruck first day in the parking lot. Yeah, I am department teammates, wife, hit him with a truck. And then he had to get his gall bladder out once he recovered from that, the dude is just, yeah, he, he was. He recovered from that getting hit, you know, in the bag and then he's driving home. Cross country doesn't feel good. He's twenty one years old time, young kid and his stomach, certain stomach codes, urgent care, gallbladders failing gallbladder removed. So surgery, Goldline all all in a span of a year or two, we we're thinking of putting the interviews bond. Yeah, we're thinking putting the interview on the bottom of after this just to kind of link it together so we can just win the hearts of White Sox nation over. Yeah. I mean, the White Sox guys law love this. 'cause White Sox fans turned into prospect nuts talking about, we're talking about the die hard. The smaller market teams nine, the small market teams to the teams that aren't good right now. You know, some of them have a plan. I don't. The Kansas City really has that Grado plan personally with Mayfield this year. I don't know why didn't. I don't know why didn't either. I don't think the reds have a good plan, their their dumpster five. Heels are going to be bad for the oil is going to be bad. San Francisco is going to be bad because they're just they're just hold on the twenty thirteen all star team every every year. Now. Teams like the White Sox teams like the San Diego's? Yup, they're, they're the teams that are, you know, so exciting to watch because of the future in the prospects of the great phrase and awesome guy. Great guy. That's too, and he's going to be up Clinton for sure. He's a big due to every player. Got your news. Good. Yeah, he struck out so I hurt and JJ and his first first appearance, he's, he's legit. His fastball. I'm horrible names who is the closer they did Orioles destroyed them to the eighties, Britain, Britain when he was good like his fastball, it was like trying to hit a bowling ball, just a heavy, heavy, heavy sinking Latin fast has. That's who came affair reminds me of the White Sox have another kid, jas, Friday drafted him in the third or fourth round all like three years ago, he's a two-time time. John survivor. I wanna say out of Oregon's dad, Oregon state, and he if you wanna look up his numbers, his era was a little inflated, but his strikeout numbers were absurd. His sliders like a fan grabs the other day. They said it was one of the most unhittable pitches in baseball this year, and he'll be just unhittable. Against Latinos hitting than they had. They did the same thing. They traded international money for Ryan Burr, Arizona state guy. He was like a fifth round draft pick as a reliever. He's flown up. He he got touched around a little bit when he got called up this year, but ninety seven ninety nine awesome. Curved while good change of good command really big Burling kid. Someone who should be able to handle a full seasons workload regularly than they have in Hamilton, a Washington state kid. They drafted him in the tenth round and they were like shocked that he fell to them. He flew through the system. He is electric in every sense of the word than they traded more international money that they literally couldn't spend on to the raise for hunter, Shriver another just a pitcher who supposed to fly through the system. So what they did with all of those players is kind of allow. The flexibility hopefully to not have to drop. You know a ton of prospect capital or financial capital on, say, a player like Andrew Miller in the future when they are competing. Because all already have those guys Inc to six, seven hundred thousand dollar deals in the year that plane. So n it's allow them financial flexibility to say, hey, we have all of these guys who were pitching for pennies on the dollar that and we can go and sign Manny Machado or whoever, whatever ex player they want, they can maybe overpay because these guys are making such little money. Yeah, absolutely. And it's, it's, that's the philosophy at this point. I would say from outside perspective, just throw baseball, nerd myself..

"That's chopped up into two three year deals. So three years, like fifty million dollars, I would. I would be all over that for the White Sox. And that's a huge increase. He's made four million dollars in like last two years. He signed a one year, two million dollar. Yeah, show me you'll. This year is deal for sure. Yeah, Provea deal for sure. And obviously he proved it. He's proved it in the postseason. He proved regular season might as one hiccup against the Orioles on a shitty night, didn't even matter whatever. You know besides that, where gave up a million runs in to watch the Astro sign on and tournament do si-joong with like a million spin ridden Ray, oh yes. It's been rate, spin Ray God's down there. And he's, I mean, I'm hoping the Red Sox bring him back for whatever it may be a year. In a two or three or deal. He would fit perfectly not rotation, especially with Porcelli leaving, and we're not going to resign Portillo, especially at that that contract, but so he would fit in there. That's a very specific guy. You're talking about Kyko stay away from core Brin. I think we're kind of, I think everybody in the world thinks he's going to New York. I think he's going to New York. The Yankees obviously like that. So if you miss out on a volley and you miss out on Cobra, you're going to bring guys back like shields or someone like Phil, what about what's is Rinaldo Lopez ever going to be White Sox fans want him to be. Yeah. Okay. Look up. If you look up his splits, he was having trouble trying to. Put put hitters away this year. I want to stay in the first half years. Strikeout per nine was like six, which is for someone who'd he throws legit, he'll he'll hit a hundred. So like we're, how does it correlate? Why does he not strike people out? You didn't have good off secondary stuff. The second half of the season. He developed a really good change in a really good cutter that was generating swings and misses. I wanna say is his strikeout per nine spiked like eight point eight per night. And he he has balls. The size of my forehead are literally polar opposites per personality wise like Lopez seized Mike trout at the better spots. He wants to strike him out..

"I almost want to like the raise what they do, what the GOP I can't stand their egos and personalities down there. The cardinals fans are the biggest dish bags ever. Oh, absolutely. I wish I, I wish I could like them as they're the cubs biggest rival by far Onoda. Brewers are great this year and everything, but. The cardinals are, are the natural rivals for the cubs. So I wish I could like him, but I guess all the whispers in Chicago, at least Tommy fan wore out his welcome there. Other GM's knew that, so they weren't going to give the cardinals anything for him. So that's crazy. Thank about. But the reason I brought up the razor note that the big game, James, James shields, you know. One more year left. He's under a club option first question, do you bring him back? I. While they're absolutely turning, they're not picking up that option. Yeah, they're not gonna. Pick up the options not worth sixteen, no. Bring him back as adept guy yet. I mean, I wouldn't be surprised after the kopech injury if they do that. But at the same time, I think they're gonna look to fill that with someone that could potentially be a flip piece. I mean, if they bring back for two million dollars to come and throw hundred innings, whatever. 'cause I don't think they're going to be a playoff team next year they might they're going to, they're going to be a lot better next year than they were this year. You've heard the weakest division in baseball, so anything can happen? Well, that is very true. I, I would love them to go forward this offseason. 'cause Indians are on the downswing bending the Royal stink. You'll tiger stink. Oil. The twin stink. Hit the twins, had one good year. I mean, they really do stink. So James shields, you bring back obviously before the kopech injury. Another guy that was in the Chris sale treadmill the guy that Red Sox fans know very well. You're starting three next year was mostly getting a look. Something like g. Toledo road don't and kopech no specific order. But those are going to be your three guys. Most likely we got ruined down. We got you. Lido you know, shields, maybe maybe he's like a number five guy who fills out the rest of that rotation starting day, who's who's your one through five wall? I would love to see the guy who started for the Red Sox. The White Sox next season. He's a free agent. I think he would be perfect fit for that team next year. Are you? You're listening to all the? Yeah, volley. I love the White Sox. Go after him next this off season I have. No, it ended price because you can have the price. We'll keep you can have their price. I don't wanna pay two hundred seventeen the remainder of two hundred seventeen million dollar deal for over thirty pitcher. We don't even. Yeah. Yeah, no one does. I mean of all the perfect guy there for you? Yeah, I do. I'm be really surprised if the white socks don't make conservative, offer a effort to sign vats. Very specific pitcher Nathanael volley on. He would be he would fit perfectly in that rotation. I don't. I mean, a lot of people are saying douse Kyko because he's a, he's a free agent this year too. I don't. I don't. I don't wanna dusk. I go. I don't. I would not want anything to do with Dow's. Lake was on the back end at thirty. He's shown he's worn. He's not what it used to be. Now. I don't know if that's hot. Take to say that. But I like tonight with the Red Sox came up like attacks. My buddy said, we can get the Dallas easy, and I'm just not afraid Dallas guy claimed Moore, he's not. We was three years ago. No, not at all. Use Shortlands ace and someone's going gonna pay him for what he used to be. Yup, not white. Yeah, that's that's. That is absolutely baseball. But Ugalde I, I mean. Three year. I mean, I would. I haven't looked at what similar pitching profiles has signed for over the last few years, but this is a complete guess. I would guess he signs for something like three years. How old is he? You've already. He's not old. He's under thirty. He's like, I want to say twenty seven twenty eight off top of my head. I don't. I think days of giving David price deals are done yet wouldn't be surprised if like six, he's when they six years left in his in his career as a pitcher who throws a hundred f..

"That's why they've, you know, obviously they're under such different budget restrictions as compared to the rest of baseball that like they're gonna have the really bad years, but every few years we're gonna put it all together and they're gonna be awesome. Obviously they want one in done in a in a wildcard game this year. But I mean they're the best team in the second half this year them in the raise, which is yeah, them in the days in the race. Yeah, no team stance. Very similar to that. So yeah, that's like that's what I'm looking at like these these guys that can come in perform similarly for much cheaper so you can't afford to drop, you know, three hundred fifty million dollars on Machado type player. So let's let's get the exciting part. This outfield has prospects for days. What is the even the top two could be all-stars within the next five years. Between Robert Illinois. He was just be next year. Yeah, he very well could be. He's gonna walk into major league baseball. Just mash baseball's to the moon. So who's the opening day outfield the Chicago White Sox. Do you think it's e won't be in it for money in contractual in control reasons? Basically, like Vladi at this point, find no fault of the White Sox? Yeah, just like Vlad fled. Junior, I know I know players getting pissed edit that is nothing they can get pissed at because that is collectively bargained and they can look at Tony Clark to get pissed at the guy that represents them. But but yeah, I mean, opening day, I dunno Ingle Cordell probably who's actually a very good athlete in his own. Right. I actually really liked me. She's a little older for a prospect, and then I don't know whoever else I couldn't even tell you who who else? There's so many people. I mean, you have. A ton on their contracts on top of, obviously you know the guard to Garcia's which is always great. Hope Garcia's long, abseil Garcia. I hope he's gone. Oh, so you do hope he's gone. Yeah. He I mean twenty seven years old come last Rb or so. It's kinda like a Castello bread. You either sign 'em long-term and he'd bees that grandpa the team. He's not that I, I think they're going to end up doing is they do tender deal. All I doubt it goes arbitraging because he was hurt this Ernie as the leverage the I played all of this year to thirty six. You how many games have even play this?.
"white sox" Discussed on Painting Corners Podcast
"It seems like you guys dry. If you guys draft guys, throw gas and outfielders. That's what it really looks like, which is good. Obviously, I mean, those are the position need UNIFIL pitching. There's a lotta pictures out there and three outfielders compared to you know, one middle infielder here and there. Yeah. I mean, like I've looked at up of a few different times as different transactions have been made it around the league. It pains me pains me pains me to say this, but the keys are in unbelievable financial position of after this year. Oh yeah. They are a Rod's. They're no longer paying era after this year. So that contracts, you know, off the books they're they're walking into next year with like an eighty. Five million dollar payroll White Sox is going to be like thirty five. So obviously, but teams like the cubs are in their extremely tight with money right now. I mean, assuming that they don't wanna pay in insane, luxury tax. Moving forward on same at the dodgers. The Red Sox are up there, but the Yankees at mandate, they will Jit could say, here's four hundred million dollars Machado and then give. I mean they can. They, there's no. Way they could get both Harper and Machado without pain. It'd be like a hundred and twenty million a year after the third year, the luxury tax so but they could legit. Corbin are getting Corbin have already sold off on. Yes, they're gonna get corporate Machado because they're going to move on from CC. I think they move on from Didi. He's not worth twenty million. He's gonna want twenty million as USA and now they had Tommy John damaged goods. And I think Yankee Stadium makes him Manny is the perfect Yankee through and through Corbin fits right behind savvy. It just makes all the sense in the world. Yeah, they and they legit do it. So that's got. And I know Hans been working on a sales pitch for Machado. It's gonna. It's gonna end up going down to the highest bidder and the White Sox will probably get priced out of I mean, 'cause is any player on earth worth that much money? I don't know. Hope really. Probably not like do you give out of thirty million market values? Twenty six ESE I don't know. I mean, they're going to have. To overpay for him for sure, because at in such like who wants to come to a team that you don't know exactly if they're going to be good or bad. I mean, hypothetically, they should be, but in, you know, in a year or two by, that's not a given at the same time. So Hans got himself in extremely difficult winner ahead of them on that front. But the at third base, as far as prospects go is definitely the the the weak link added sits right now because because of the burger injury that said they still got third picking next year's draft who knows who they're gonna take. There's going to be so much movement. I mean, it's nine in work looking at, you know, mock drafts right now, there's going to be guys that you've never heard of that. Go top ten. So yeah, of course. But, but yeah, third, third base is the, it's the week, Lincoln Yohmor Sanchez, not not in the least bit. That's to say yes. 'cause he's an unbelievable. He's a great fielding defensive player, and he's got a good contract, which is just he's on there is operatives controls all that. Yeah. I mean, he's going into RBIs hero probably get five million or whatever it is. Yeah, double salary from two point three. Yes. Something like that. The contracts after the battle for really thinking about it, oh, it's all the battle. At this point in this day and age, it's the contract. You gotta get the sweetheart deal. You gotta get guys young and and mix them in like Gary Sanchez like an Aaron judge that are your this great deal on a team already flourishing. Yeah, it's like like fans and I, I try to like, like you said, so over the last few years I've been I, I've been forced to really narrow or zero win on the Mike white socks in not just White Sox like all of baseball's minor league systems, and it goes back to you, don't you don't buy players you by wins, and you want to get the most efficient use out of your money. Possible. And that's why the as have been so good this year..

"And the big thing about those deals that you know, you idiot, White Sox fans, and we've idiot Red Sox fans to that is the least. Yeah, exactly. And the big thing for me is the last two years when he's thirty and thirty one their club options, they don't have to pay him. You don't have to pay for you to just like what sale in Quintana, and that's huge because if he blows you get him out of there for nothing. But if he's there, you can turn it into Moncada and kopech like they would sail. You know, they got a good return for Quintana as well, which you know that that deals looking great for them could Tana struggled in the with the White Sox with the cubs. So y'all worked out really well and think about it. If. Those players can Tana and a sail weren't into those deals. They wouldn't have returned what they did. A big reason they had so much trade value is because they are on the cheapest deals of all time for what they providers pitchers because the contract provides value by itself. Exactly, exactly. So let's talk about a guy is just blown through the system. Probably gonna start and I would think Birmingham, if maybe even higher Nick module Gosden absolutely incredible since he got drafted, like what? What's your thoughts on him? How long is it gonna take and when you need up. So I don't know if you guys listen to my podcast at all. I would understand if you didn't sense it's very various Chicago Centric. But when he got drafted a text, Carling stocks took a magical and he was like beyond thrilled because he's like, I've seen this kid play a hundred different times like on TV and whatnot. That kid is just a baseball player. In every since he's five, seven bucks seventy or something like that. And then I mean that program hide sewage, probably even a little smaller. He's out to a big, probably five strikeouts in two hundred at bats or whatever. It was just puts nothing puts a bat on the ball, no matter who's pitching and apparently plays gold glove, defense and see. They'll obviously his thing is, is, is the power gonna come? I have watched him swing. A bunch of times his swing is not conducive to hit the ball over the fence, but if he can just make a little little adjustment, just a slight uppercut in his swing where he's getting lift under the ball in these. 'cause you don't need to be tall or big to hit a home run. You need to know how to swing the ball through or swing the bat through zone. Nate contact. If he just can make a little tweak or to hit twelve or fifteen bombs year, if that and then swipe forty basis. That's a I mean with the gold glove defense, he's apparently able to provide like they're gonna..

"And I'm guaranteeing multiple all star appearances. Form a big contract on the road form. He is one thousand percent, the White Sox, second baseman of the future. And he's gonna be just a stud in every single way. Yeah. I mean he's going to I think he's going to be good. I don't know if he's gonna hit thirty. Five home runs a bat, three hundred dollars once. I think a very consistent slash line year to year firm will be like a weighty. He'll get on base it like three seventy clip and held pill hit. Thirty home runs a few different times and then he can ask, they told they stopped. Once the second half came, they told him to stop stealing basics. They don't want like break away. You're so, I mean, stealing basis isn't easy. It's not just like you can't just be fast in run. Our form that's things like anything else is, and but they did tell them like, hey, we don't. We don't need you stealing right now. Like we can. We'll get to that point one. We're trying to win baseball games, you know? So. But I mean a twenty twenty with two eighty and getting on base at a crazy clip for a second baseman. What more can you want? You know much. I mean, he's similar to for Red Sox fans. I mean, Deborah catches a lot of flack here and there for his defense. But Adrian BELTRAN was a disaster. His first couple of years at third base, and he was an absolute vacuum later on each that, but yeah, absolutely, absolutely. And also knows all about that living down Texas. I mean, he grew up watching that guy, so young guys that you could teach them writer throughout your defensively as well. Yep. So I, I love McCotter that there's nothing on plant earth that would make me want to do that trade over man. And you got you have three guys that are gonna wind up helping this organization. I mean, if Diaz could ever figured out, maybe even four, but I don't think that's happening at this point. I know he. Ironically enough. He was down in Arizona last week in instructs, like throwing his first baseball of the entire year. And it was like three pitches in. They pulled them for injury, so crazy. He was a wild card from the get-go. But I mean if he would turn into like a seventh or eighth inning guy. Awesome. But you know, whatever, we're gonna we're gonna jump to shortstop just because this is a guy that really intrigues me in this contract that. Thomas, I loved him Henderson for some reason. I don't know why, because he strikes out a crapton but Tim Anderson love. So what what's your thoughts on Tim Anderson? He's got a really good contract if he even becomes remotely anything because he's locked down for years to come. Right? Yeah. Like the dome White Sox fans are really pissed off today, contract coach, zoos, given to him before he had really proven himself. But all of that white, all that contract did was it was beneficial. I mean, they did it with sale. They did it with Nate Jones who it hasn't really worked out for because he's been hurt. They did it with Jose cantata. It's a perfect deal that a lot of teams are going to start to emulate the cubs, even did it with Anthony Rizzo. It's basically just buys out your Arbor's instead of, you know, you're so it guarantees you make eight million ten million, whatever it is he's making per year instead of five hundred thousand, and it gives. The White Sox two extra years on the end of when you would be free agent eligible. So it's a win win for everybody. It's like even if he fizzles out, it's like a what? Eight year twenty five million dollar dealer sometimes around that range is twenty. Five is the fact that it's always going to be below what a market value shortstop is when you in the exact. I don't know why more people don't do white socks did with Chris sale too. They made him a rich man and they he was under the best kind. He still is under the best contract in all of baseball. It's it's, he's greeted that. Yeah, you might have the best GM for signings that you have to because Alantic years? Yes, Harvey long, I went to Michigan and northwestern for his other degrees, whatever they were in. So he's smart guy in that sense. Yeah..
"white sox" Discussed on Painting Corners Podcast
"Farm system, we're going to be doing one of these for all thirty teams. There's also a Chicago White Sox player interview at the end Caleb ver. He's reliever. We hope you enjoy the White Sox are in a little bit of a different situation than your neighbors up north, the cubs cubs win now mode. The White Sox are in rebuild and retool mode. You have specifically five catchers on the contract right now, from what I see, you have Castillo who the veteran making money until twenty twenty on a club option. Then you got a bunch of the guys. You got Navarra as you kansallis Garneau and Smith. What do you think of those guys. Hey, guys, any of those guys to be in the future? Detri- move Castillo out for another prospect, either the summer at the deadline next year. What do you think the plan should be with the White Sox? The okay. So with the Whiteside. All right. So automatically take garnell out. He's I mean, he might be gone already to be honest. But I mean, he's not come back. You just organizational dept if you really need someone to come catch a game or give you a few innings behind the plate. I mean, he's thirty plus years, older ready. I want to say, but he's he's got zero part of future. So not even worth talking about Wellington Casio. So recon I don't like I have this whole running joke on Twitter, everything where I'm friends with three kind. I'm friendly with recon it's not like I'm sitting there texting the White Sox general manager like, oh, what about this? What about that? You know course he had mentioned a few times that over. So last off season this this coming off season and probably next offseason. Is or two off seasons from now as well that they're gonna start making these bridge signings with not exactly old like outdated veterans, but you know, guys that are still productive major league players like a welling tickets. I mean, if you're a war guy, I wanna say Wellington Cousteau's war with the Orioles, two seasons ago. Now for the White Sox, at least so twenty seventeen season was like he was almost three win catcher hit like two seventy with like almost twenty bombs, and he's a good catcher. But this year you got popped for steroids. It was a two year deal with third year team option. After this. I mean, I would have said that he would have been the guy to like be the the, the brick, the brick wall behind home plate for the next couple of years because he is a really good receiving catcher. He can control a running game. He knows how to call a game, and he's been around the league for five, six, seven, eight.
