The Chicago White Sox have an opening at designated hitter. Is top prospect Andrew Vaughn in line to fill the role?

That’s one of the majors questions for the Sox as spring training nears.

The PECOTA ratings were not kind, project the Sox for 3rd place and 83 wins.

i think they are off by 10 wins.

73 sounds right

Neat start.

  • Injuries
  • Horrible base running.
  • No situational hitting
  • Leading the league in errors
  • Bullpen has been horrible

Hoping the home opening changes the tide.

It’s over.

Is it?  :)

Hard to believe Giolito is the weak spot in the rotation. His K's are way down, too many pitches to get outs. Not sure what's leading to his regression.

Lol. No Eloy, no Robert, no problem. I believe Giolito will turn it around. He's shown flashes. Really good pitching staff this year which makes the injuries so depressing. Looked to have all the pieces in place for a WS push early this spring.

They've won with small ball in the past, but hard for me to believe the lack of power hitting won't bite them in the butt at some point. Jose should get better this summer. Moncada is playing better than last year. Madrigal is kinda amazing and Vaughn seems to have settled in a bit and is doing better.

A huge positive for the Sox is the AL Central is trash. Cleveland is decent, but beatable. Best hope is they can hang around and hopefully get Robert and maybe Eloy back. Still looks like "next year" but anything is possible.

This is fun to watch. Now if Giolito gets back on track today that will really be something.

It has been really fun. They're mixing in the long ball now, but it is refreshing to see a team not rely on the HR and still score a ton of runs. Can't ever remember a White Sox team producing with 2 strikes and 2 outs like this one.

Shades of 2005 when Big Frank got hurt and guys stepped up. Aging guy like Hamilton having a resurgence in a Scotty Pods type role. Good pitching. Hope they can keep it going.

Mercedes is off to a crazy start. Great story. I keep thinking it's a fluke but he keeps producing. Tim Anderson hot right now. Tough for a batting champ to be under rated, but he is.

If they are in contention this summer and go after rental pitching I hope they make a deal more like Contreras in 05 for future scrub and not the James Shields for Tatis Jr. trade in '16. That one hurt. What could've been there.
