3 if you include the starting 3B.

It’s still a significant commitment for a team ranked 18th in revenues (2016) and still inexplicably barred from the revenue sharing program. We don’t qualify for revenue sharing, we don’t qualify for competitive balance draft picks, our compensatory draft picks are lower than other teams, and our TV situation is in limbo. By necessity, our free agent signings and big-money extensions need to succeed significantly more often than many other teams.

Fangraphs came out with their CF projections and we're last by a lot: https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/2018...-center-field/

That's about right I think. I can't put us above anyone in the majors at CF right now. Engel has a good glove but didn't hit. Leury is a backup. Tilson will hurt himself putting his pants on.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with your overall point.
Very true about Burger and that's where the list ends....

Daryl Van Schouwen just tweeted a few minutes ago that Yoan Moncada was hurt trying to advance to 3rd base on a ground ball hit to the shortstop (dumb base running first off). Van Schouwen said he "was down for a moment and walked off the field with the training staff."

Stay turned.

UPDATE: Van Schouwen just tweeted that he appears to be OK walking around the dugout on his own and is staying in the game.

Whew!

You are dreaming the impossible dream. I'm also a little worried about you. Yolmer Sanchez dreams?!

Just passing along what he wrote. His words not mine. Given the Sox injury "luck" (LOL) I fully expected something serious.

Glad for once they got some "good luck."

Guess I'm confused. In this thread you keep saying you don't believe in luck and in the March Madness thread you keep going on how Loyola has great luck.

When you win your last four tournament games by a basket at the end and by a total of six points there is a "luck" factor involved in the game itself. That doesn't mean I believe in it but that's one way to explain it. The only way that I know of, because the Loyola players are good but not that good. And you are talking about a very small sample size not two plus years worth of 162 games for example.

As Al McGuire once said, "to win a tournament you have to have a game where the last shot goes in." Loyola's had four of them.

The White Sox injury situation, as I have pointed out, now has gone above the league average in DL stints and in games lost. That indicates to me something over and above "luck." I think it is complacency based on the length of service of the training / medical staff which hasn't changed in decades. Not their fault, as I've stated. Human nature which needs to be 'shook up' from time to time.

Checkmate.

A “You make your own luck” mantra dictates the entire argument about the White Sox training/medical staff being somehow responsible for injuries. If that were the case, then Loyola’s tournament success must also be the direct results of something that Loyola is doing right, like being a “clutch” team.

Hopefully these players make their own luck next year:

Luis Robert, Eloy Jimenez, Micker Adolfo & Jake Burger.
