Last night was a GREAT reminder of what’s to come next year on the south side. We got a team that’s 15 games under .500 or whatever that’s still working their dicks off to win baseball games, throwing in hammers, fucking around in front of the camera while the youth and future dominates. It was so fun to watch. Started with Eloy’s slam in the 1st:
followed by Moncada going 3.4 and murdering a baseball in cold blood in the 7th:
tell me that’s not the sexiest swing in baseball. You can’t. So smooth, yet so violent. The suave bat drop will make one’s toes curl. Yoan Moncada is a superstar.
Oh… and Keith Law even named Luis Robert his MiLB POY Runner Up and he isn’t near as high on Robert with respect to the rest of the industry:
all in all, it was a great night for the rebuild. And every fucking day we inch closer to its death. I’ll talk about it more in depth on Red Line Radio for tomorrow’s episode drop, but we are really starting to cook with gas
Yoan is going to have a 5 fWAR season in spite of missing ~40 games while Eloy is going to be close to 30 home runs while doing the same. Giolito is an ace. Cease has flashed:
Robert and Madrigal are on deck and on yeah… Hahn some money to spend. Here’s what they have committed to payroll pre-arb heading into 2020:
Go ahead and yuck it up you cock suckers. Laugh at the Sox. Laugh at their fans. Laugh at me. This team is going to be a real pain in the dick to play against next year. I’m not saying Cole or Rendon or anything like that, but they don’t really need those guys to be really competitive.
The rebuild is fucking DEAD as we know it come 9/29
