Is Michael Kopech at risk of not making the starting rotation?

Record Date: 3/7/2024 Rundown [1:41]: In honor of John Schriffen's early catchphrases, Josh pitches the idea of buying the rights to T.I. "Bring Em Out" [4:22]: Michael Kopech had control issues against the Dodgers, and after the performance, manager Pedro Grifol would not commit a starting rotation spot for him. Should Kopech worry about his role with the White Sox? If Kopech is not in the starting rotation, who would be? [20:36] Eloy Jimenez adjusting his hand placement has done wonders this spring. Is it the magic cure to get him back to his 2019 form? [30:27] Josh has another crazy thought: could Nicky Lopez be a 2 WAR player in 2024?

Good signs early at camp from White Sox pitchers

Record Date: 3/3/2024 Guest: Brenden Moore, Illinois Government Reporter Rundown [Intro] Latest update regarding the White Sox pursuit of a new stadium in the South Loop is now forcing them to work on a single proposal with the Chicago Bears. How is Springfield feeling about the proposals and conversations with Jerry Reinsdorf? Guest Brenden Moore joins the show to share his unique insight covering Illinois politics and circles two important dates when a proposal could be voted on. [22:44] Dylan Cease is throwing harder in Spring Training than last year's camp. Why that's a good sign and why Cease thinks everyone is sleeping on the White Sox. [33:27] Erick Fedde made his first start for the White Sox and looked good against right-handers. However, there's a question about his attack plan against left-handed bats moving forward. [38:55] For two innings, Michael Kopech looked strong striking out five. Question now is how he looks when starts start to push more than four innings if he's purely just fastball / slider arsenal. [41:02] While Garrett Crochet is still searching for a second pitch to throw for strikes, his fastball seems to have recapture his missing velocity since Tommy John surgery [49:04] Pedro Grifol's comments about the second batter in the lineup causes confusion [58:35] After Matt Chapman signs for a small deal with the San Francisco Giants has Scott Boras overplayed his hand with his four big clients?

P.O. Sox Mailbag: January 2024 Edition

Record Date: 1/6/2024 Rundown [Intro] Josh is heading out on vacation visiting Australia and New Zealand [4:21] Alec S. If this wasn’t your job, how many Sox games would you watch this upcoming season? The second half of last season I watched games around the league and realized how much good baseball there is to watch. I don’t see myself watching more than 40 Sox games this year [10:49] Michael In the spirit of a very old P.O. Sox question I asked where I wondered who would have the better career between Rodon, Kopech, and Alec Hansen. Which prospect that didn’t make the majors from the recent rebuild did you have the highest hopes on that didn’t pan out? What do you think went wrong? [18:16] John Phillips We will be going to Arizona again this year. We usually catch several Sox games and wander the practice fields. If you had this opportunity, where would you focus your attention? [21:43] Noah Amstadter In light of the Sox numerous AAAA acquisitions the past few weeks, are the team’s numbers in Ben Clemens’ metric looking any better? And isn’t strong AAA depth for this team as it currently stands kind of like carrying low deductible car insurance on a 17 year old beater with 300,000 miles? [27:52] Jordan How is BetterHelp not a sponsor of this podcast? I’m sure all of us Sox fans could greatly benefit from some professional help at this point…. [29:23] Benjamin Gazda How has a replacement for Benetti not been named yet? Do we even know who they are looking at to take the position? [39:02] Bryan Dolan What is a realistic statistical goal for Noah Schultz this year/has there been any noticeable comments or changes (ie bannister) to avoid recent developmental struggles ie Crochet/Rodon/ dear god Carson Fulmer. Enjoy your trip Josh!! It’s a dream of mine to make it there. [47:42] Asinwreck If Brett Phillips isn't the starting RF on Opening Day, who would be a realistic option? Also, can Josh bring Dave Nilsson back from Australia to manage the Sox? [57:04] Stephen Millark After signing roughly a dozen defensive replacements to one year deals, it doesnt seem like the White Sox have a real long term plan and probably don't have the farm system to achieve a real competitive team in Luis Robert's window of control. Considering that, is this the time to trade him? Even if you only get 80 cents on the dollar, those 80 cents probably do more to help the Sox return to the playoffs in 2-3 years than Robert does before he leaves Learn more about your ad choices.

The Frontier League is introducing SUDDEN DEATH extra-inning rules in 2022. Enter the 11th inning (or 9th inning of a 7-inning game); the home team manager will get to pick if his team will play on offense or defense. If the offensive team scores, they win the game.

2021 Player Review: Andrew Vaughn

The Chicago White Sox had plans to challenge Andrew Vaughn with an aggressive assignment in 2021. They just didn’t know it would be out of position for Vaughn and playing primarily in left field. While Vaughn did admirably defensively, the bat-first prospect had his share of struggles at the plate, especially against right-handed pitching.  Entering 2022, what is Andrew Vaughn’s role with the White Sox? Will he start every day again in a corner outfield position? Or will he be platooning at DH with Gavin Sheets?  Or is Andrew Vaughn even on the White Sox post-lockout?  Josh and Jim recap Andrew Vaughn’s rookie season while answering the critical questions.  Learn more about your ad choices.

2021 Player Review: Eloy Jimenez

Eloy Jimenez only appeared in 55 games during 2021 because of a self-inflicted injury during Spring Training. While he hit for power in his first 15 games back, Jimenez faded in his last 40 games ending with a league-average OPS+. Is the pectoral injury to blame for Jimenez's offensive struggles in 2021? Or are there other red flags? With hopes of a bounce-back performance in 2022, is this also the time to think about trading Jimenez much like the White Sox traded Carlos Lee prior to the 2005 season?
