Different "rules" but that's similar to when we had a promise with Bruce and Pelfrey fell.


I love what ifs and I think if they'd drafted Bruce, he makes the team at least by 2009, maybe end of 2008. (He was MLB's #1 overall prospect pre 2008 - wow).

They might still do the Ryan Church trade but with so highly regarded a RF prospect, maybe they get a different piece from Washington. No Church means no Francoeur.

Maybe they never sign Sheffield or Jason Bay with Bruce in the mix.

It goes without saying that Bruce >> Pelfrey.

I'm sort of shocked by the performance of the White Sox affiliates. Didn't they just do a fire sale for a bunch of High Profile guys?



Their guys are simply very spread out. Their system is absolutely drool worthy. I'd argue they have at least 6 prospects who would be ahead of our #1. I'm very jealous.


The White Sox entire organization is horrible talentwise ASIDE from the 8-10 top prospects they just traded for. Having 1-2 guys on each of your minor league affiliates aren't enough to make them winners. And more than half those guys (Jimenez, Cease, Rutherford, Robert) were acquired midseason anyway.

The Whitesox don't look like that bad a franchise to me.

The won the WS in 2005
3 playoff appearances since 2000
5 88 or better win seasons since 2000 (I look at 88 as kind of a playoff number)
9 seasons over 500 (between 2000-2012, 9 over 1 tie, 3 under).

and the last 5 years when they've been below 500, they've sold off their talent for a good return. They're probably due for a top 3 pick this year, no lower than 4, currently 2 and they've spent on the international market. Overall, I'd call their franchise solid, or at least, certainly not awful based on overall performance, even with the 5 losing seasons in a row, they could turn that around in 2-3 years.
