Value Survey: Game 70

Value Survey: Game 70

Two new names, including TA, top the list of best White Sox values so far this season FanGraphs, our stats partner, generates dollar values for WAR. For the White Sox roster, FanGraphs is valuing 1.0 WAR at $7,987,179. By prorating salary, we can subtract salary paid from each player’s dollar war value to generate Surplus Value. The Value Survey has been off for about a month, during which time Yoán Moncada has lost significant WAR and value. So, there’s a new team leader, Tim Anderson, with $11.3 million in surplus value as the season approaches the halfway mark. Another change is...

Crosseyed, but painless: Sox dropped, 4-0

Crosseyed, but painless: Sox dropped, 4-0

Carlos Carrasco dominates, Lucas Giolito falters and Matt Davidson flails This was the kind of a game where Tim Anderson backing up Adam Engel’s ill-advised dive attempt in the fourth inning is lauded as a highlight. The Chicago White Sox’s 4-0 whitewash by Carlos Carrasco and Cleveland was the sort of game not for watching, but for laying down and avoiding. Let’s not excruciate over the minute details of tonight’s debauchery. Just grin and bear Carrasco’s recent dominance of the White Sox: Tonight: 7 IP, 2 H, BB, HBP, 11 Ks, 87 game score 2017-18: 4-0, CG, 36 1⁄3 IP, 19 H, 4...

Yoán Moncada should not stop switch-hitting

Yoán Moncada should not stop switch-hitting

Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Rebuild This is not a detailed analysis of why Yoán Moncada should not, will not, or will stop switch-hitting. It does submit that he should continue switch-hitting, and issues a plea to you, my fellow South Siders, to let that process play out. Per our stats pardner FanGraphs, here’s the poop: Tim Anderson, 25, leads the White Sox in WAR (1.5). Moncada, 23, is second (1.3 WAR), and only his latest slump has opened up the mere possibility of him not being the team MVP this season. Both players get their share of crap from us in comments....

Cleveland trashes Sox, 7-3

On the bright side, at one point the game was tied, 0-0 There’s not a lot of highlights to speak of these days for the Chicago White Sox. Hunting and pecking doesn’t turn up much. In yesterday’s loss, there was Matt Skole getting his first major league hit, and then his first major league homer. This evening, during a 7-3 blowout at Cleveland, whaddya got? Yolmer Sánchez hit his sixth triple, tops in the majors? Lucas Giolito didn’t walk or hit anyone? Tim Anderson stole his 12th base? Daniel Palka had two of Chicago’s three extra-base hits (double, homer)? Yeesh. On the bright...
