Would they really do Kluber for those guys? Basically a rental, a top prospect and a guy who was severely overwhelmed in limited time?

Let's play a little game, name that pitcher!!

  • Pitcher A = 9 G, 9 GS, 50 1/3 IP, 55 H, 34 R, 31 ER, 5 HR, 33 BB, 20 SO, 5.54 ERA, 1.748 WHIP
  • Pitcher B = 3 G, 1 GS, 8 IP, 19 H, 12 R, 11 ER, 3 HR, 4 BB, 3 SO, 12.38 ERA, 2.875 WHIP
  • Pitcher C = 6 G, 5 GS, 31 IP, 44 H, 20 R, 19 ER, 3 HR, 11 BB, 20 SO, 5.52 ERA, 1.774 WHIP
  • Pitcher D = 30 G, 27 GS, 155 2/3 IP, 181 H, 111 R, 97 ER, 17 HR, 74 BB, 101 SO, 5.61 ERA, 1.638 WHIP

Ryu, Corbin, Kuechel, Grandal, Harper, Kimbrel and Pollock all got QO's.

Corbin is still considered a virtual lock for the Yankees. For those who missed it he grew up a huge fan and his family is a long line of huge fans. His dream is to play for the Yankees.

I hope his experience of living out his dream goes better than lots of guys who couldn't handle playing for the Yankees.

Ok, guess I'll give the answers since no one played my game with me.

  • Pitcher A = Tom Glavine
  • Pitcher B = Kolby Allard
  • Pitcher C = Greg Maddux
  • Pitcher D = Greg Maddux's First Full Season
  • Pitcher E = John Smoltz
  • Pitcher F = Curt Schilling

The point is, thinking 3 games from a 20 year old 1st round pick rookie who's got a terrific minor league track record means anything (good or bad) is jumping the gun just a little too quickly.

White Sox are pulling out the blank checks. They reportedly are ready to compete and are willing to spend big to get better.

Their rebuild is kind of a disaster. The Kopech UCL tear was a big blow. Moncada, Anderson, and Giolito have been disappointing. Their drafts haven't been great. Eloy Jimenez could come up and be great, but if they aren't patient with the arms like Cease, Dunning, and Hansen this could get ugly quickly.

LOL I was thinking of you when I made the post but still don't want Zunino.

Why? Why wouldn't you want a guy with a wRC+ of 127 in 2016 and 117 in 2017 who's great at throwing out baserunners? What's not to like about a guaranteed 25 dingers from your catcher? He's also still young and has untapped offensive potential.

His career slash looks worse than Ugla's last years.
