Is this an estimation made through calculation or through a Doctor Who timey whimey excursion into the future?

I hate Tim Anderson................giving the shhhh sign to the Tiger dugout.    SHUT UP you perpetual third or fourth place player.   You're a glorified Ryan Raburn.

Lots of strong reactions here. The White Sox had been playing with sleepy bats for a while. Steve Stone's words, not mine. Anderson just got back. Look at their line-up - Anderson, Moncada, Robert, Jimenez, Abreu, Encarnacion, Grandal. Looks like they've woken up. I agree Boyd has been bad dating back to last June. Turnbull looks like he might be becoming a stud, same with Soto. Heck, Schreiber looks decent. And they have a friggin ton of stud pitchers coming up. The White Sox are a better team. Losing Cron hurts - but they still fought back today. The future looks bright but we all know there is still much improvement needed.

The one thing that's disappointing to me is that Boyd might not be a trade chip at all anymore. Otherwise there has been much to like about this year. Per Gardy reports were "glowing" about Willi in Toledo. Then today he hits a double and a HR. Maybe he it a legit player. Maybe Morris will develop laryngitis. Maybe Trump and Lou Holtz become strange bedfellows.

His ops last year was .865 and so far this year it's. 900+. The shhh thing was classless but he's a budding star imho

In Verlander‘s first season I remember his modus operandi was have ball/throw ball, have ball/throw ball, have ball/throw ball. I don’t remember ever having seen somebody work that fast.

Watch Soto's pace, same thing.

Boyd's top FB is off enough to where he can't reach back, throw it up in the zone and get a swing and miss. I don't know if it's more the velo or the spin (No data at Brooks this year so far! 😂) but that pitch isn't there for him this year and the effectiveness of breaking pitches is always enhanced by the quality of the FB they are playing off.

I remember that as well. He attributed that to his pitching coach at ODU. JV said that his pitching coach at ODU expected him to deliver the next pitch within something like 15 seconds after receiving the ball back from the catcher.

It’s a good antidote to overthinking it. You don’t want to underthink it either but putzing around is often counterproductive.

Both the concept of truth and the English language were done a great disservice when the word “fanatic“ was shortened to “fan.”
