2020 Chicago White Sox

Recommended Posts

The White Sox certainly are having an interesting offseason:

- Re-signed Jose Abreu (3/$50 mm)

- Signed Yasmani Grandal (4/$73 mm)

- Signed Dallas Keuchel (3/$55.5 mm)

- Signed Edwin Encarnacion (1/$12 mm)

- Signed Gio Gonzalez (1/$5 mm with 2021 option)

- Re-signed James McCann (1/$5.4 mm)

- Gave long term deal to Luis Robert (6/$50 mm with two $20 mm options).    

In addition to that group, they have budding star Yoan Moncada under control for four years, Eloy Jimenez signed last year to a six year deal (now five remaining) for $43 mm and two options ($16.5 and $18 mm), Tim Anderson signed for three more years plus two club options ($12.5 and $14 mm) and Lucas Giolito coming into his own with four years of control remaining.      It sure looks like the White Sox window is about to open and stay open for a nice stretch.

A nice Givens spot.

They had a high Machado bid (including Yonder Alonso soft sell) last offseason - I think there was a colorful report the GM was on a golf cart or something when Padres Machado broke, to the team's consternation.  I wonder if they're happy now about how it worked out.

They've succeeded with Eloy and Robert - Madrigal next.  If they don't get Madrigal done, that'll be a fun Kris Bryant-ish cat and mouse to watch in March and April.  They could browse the Dozier/Asdrubal/Wilmer 2B tier if they want a little more cover.

Before they got Encarnacion, I thought some Incaviglia-style quick to bigs for Andrew Vaughn may have been in play this summer.

The White Sox and Angels may be refuges that aren't too offensive to semi-cheer for while waiting out the last couple years of return to relevance.

(vs. CUBS, 8/21)

 

DALLAKEUCHEL lpitched 8 innings of 1-run ball on 114 pitches.

He pitched 7 innings of shutout ball on only 90 pitches, and then he ceded a run in the 8th on 24 additional pitches.

- Re-signed Jose Abreu (3/$50 mm)  2.9 rWAR leads AL

- Signed Yasmani Grandal (4/$73 mm) 0.3 rWAR

- Signed Dallas Keuchel (3/$55.5 mm) 1.9 rWAR

- Signed Edwin Encarnacion (1/$12 mm) -0.4 rWAR

- Signed Gio Gonzalez (1/$5 mm with 2021 option) -0.1 rWAR

- Re-signed James McCann (1/$5.4 mm) 1.1 rWAR

- Gave long term deal to Luis Robert (6/$50 mm with two $20 mm options).    1.6 rWAR

In addition to that group, they have budding star Yoan Moncada under control for four years 0.6 rWAR, Eloy Jimenez signed last year to a six year deal (now five remaining) for $43 mm and two options ($16.5 and $18 mm) 0.9 rWAR, Tim Anderson signed for three more years plus two club options ($12.5 and $14 mm) 2.3 rWAR and Lucas Giolito coming into his own with four years of control remaining 0.7 rWAR.      It sure looks like the White Sox window is about to open and stay open for a nice stretch.   
 

Obviously 2020 has gone great for the White Sox.    I’ve added some 2020 data in bold.  Keep in mind that the Sox have played 52 games.   Overall these moves have worked out well.

The team colors of the Athletics are great ....... I could have simply posted an article from the Chicago Tribune or the East Bay Times, but that wasn't what I was into.

    • Golf is an exception.  Kids whose parents belong to country clubs have a big advantage.
    • My kids now will sometimes complain about the quality of the pitch where they have a soccer game because it's **shudder** grass with a few bare spots or weeds.  Even St. Mary's County stepped up in the last year and put in two really nice turf fields, not the 1988 Royals Stadium stuff, but the modern thick cushiony stuff that you wear normal cleats on and that drains in minutes after a huge downpour. We had a tournament over Columbus Day weekend in Manassas and the goalposts were rusty and needed a coat of paint.  Can you imagine having people over with the place in such a condition?  The embarrassment...
    • We have space for 15ish players and we have only talked about protecting around 7-10 guys...so yes, they easily have space. Of course, you do have to be able to field a ML team and dropping one of these kids off the 40 man exposes them in a way they don’t have to stay on the roster, like you do with the rule 5.  So, it could end up being riskier you put them on the 40 man now.     That being said, I think we have the room to make sure you don’t lose anyone you could regret.
    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
