White Sox - Future

A Off-Topic forum to discuss things that aren't related to the Amusement Park Industry.
Postby CoasterRiderSC on December 22nd, 2016, 3:01 pm
Now that Chris Sale and Adam Eaton have been traded, our White Sox suddenly have a top 10 farm system!
I'm super excited about the future of this team! I admit 2017 will probably be a rough year but I believe in 2-3 years we'll be competitive again.

What are your thoughts on trades of Sale and Eaton, the future with Rick Renteria, moves made by GM Hahn and other players that will likley be moved??

Been a very quiet and slow time period after the first 2 blockbuster deals. At least Jose Abreu will be back! Hopefully he can get Moncada acclimated....

Hopefully the prospects pan out. I think they will contend in a few years. If only they can get more prospects for Jose. As for the field, terrible move going for guaranteed rate field. I'm already calling it Gay Rate field for short.

I've resorted to calling it Comiskey Park or Sox Park now. At least with US Cellular Field, "The Cell" sounded cool.

White Sox future looks even brighter now with Jimenez and the other prospects picked up for Quintana!

I saw on MLB site that Sox have 4 of top 40 prospects in all of baseball and 6 of top 100! And that doesn't include Moncada and Giolito who have already been called up.

Give them 2-3 more years and they'll be a good team!!

Go White Sox!!! Year 2 of rebuilding process. We should expect to see more prospects getting called up this year.

This season isn't meeting my low-ish expectations. Before the season, I thought hitting would be fine but pitching would suffer. Seems to be both! Lost 1-0 yesterday. Its painful. I wasn't expecting them to break .500, but damn, we are less than .250 right now!

I Know, it's tough to watch/follow. But it's a complete rebuild. And there are some bright spots. Look at Lopez's numbers. Low ERA, AVG against. Nate Jones is a great bullpen guy. Moncada is doing decent.
Abreu is having a solid year so far. Hopefully Avisail can have another year like last year.
We haven't even seen Kopech or Jimenez yet!

These prospects will all hopefully be good.
Then the team is going to be VERY good for several years (i.e. Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians)

Just be patient :)

On the bright side, with a rebuild comes great prices. I see soo many cubs fans at GRate with friend groups because its easier to get 5 seats for $35 total than whatever it costs at Wrigley :lol: I have probably been to six games this season and last. The six before that probably took me 4 or 5 years.

Very funny!

As most Cubs fans won't remember or admit, Cubs were abysmal after they traded all their talent away!

And Rick Hahn followed the blueprint of the "Great Theo" and did the same thing! Even picked up the manager whom Cubs dumped.

Cubs blew it :lol:

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my park get a RMC Trex, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will double post on this forum.

Maddon is 1-1 in the WS! I'd rather have Terry Francona. The Cubs won game 7 despite Maddon's attempts to give the game away.
