    Cleveland’s % makes me angry. Can’t imagine how pissed I’d be if I was a fan of theirs.

    the NL Central having almost no chance at a wildcard is pretty crazy.

    fangraphs actually have the Pirates projected to be three games worse than the Orioles.

    Sad thing is as much as I'd like to see Cleveland punished this year by them sucking on the field, I think that % is too low. That org seems to find ways to win every year at this point no matter who they trade or lose.

    This one is a head scratcher to me. Trading a good prospect at catcher, a position that has been a black hole for the entirety of your franchise, for two guys who recently got DFA’d?

    Seems like Michael Kopech is going to be in the bullpen for the White Sox from day 1 before moving to starting again next year

    Kopech, Crochet, Bummer, Hendriks

    that bullpen is going to be outrageous

    Supposedly he’s fine- by all accounts he’s actually throwing harder than before the injury. I think there’s a big difference mentally between 22/23 (last we saw him) & 25 (this season). I’m very high on him and so are the White Sox staff

    yeah and they have two of the best pitchers in baseball, one of the best #3 starters, cease who should be very good, and one of rodon/lopez

    they’ll be just fine

    As a younger bulls fan, I understand being battered down by the Reisdorf’s bullshit, but the Sox are one of the more complete teams in baseball. Also, they are on the rise and just entering their championship window. If you’re bitching now, you’re not going to have much fun when/if they plateau.

    guess i am in the minority but i think giving that deal to a guy who’s played 143 games that you have under control for 4 more years (saw on twitter not gonna fact check) is pretty silly and bidding against yourself

    I think the 143 games is risky but if you think he's the guy I gladly give up the 4 years of control to ensure having him his whole career.
