David Kaplan, Phil Rogers and the CTL panel discuss the White Sox rotation and starting lineup - 3/5
White Sox that's an unusual lineup as do the Cubs would start. With the White Sox were 64 losers to the Dodgers at camelback ranch today. AJ in the two hole Rio within the three hall. So surprised me a bit well I didn't realize if you look at the whole thing. Who who -- you wanna put around Konerko logged big you know can come Turco at 34 or five I don't think I let them so. You know I think no matter what lineup you put up there you know it's gonna look shaky and I don't blame them for trying to count on Rios bounced him back he's been an every other year guy this is the every other year. Didn't give him a shot that to bounce back I'm not sure I'd have Alexi that far down I would argue that that actually I that's the one change I would make two and I've I've thought this forever I mean I didn't like Juan Pierre. As a player far too many outs and yeah he can steal a base but he also got thrown out a billion times and I. Two years ago Juan Pierre was like third or fourth in baseball and most played appear slow pace Lieberman trees should really tell yet. You give the plate appearances you better hitter Alexei Ramirez. Should've been up higher in the order and I -- that when the season starts we will work so we're where we're like -- your mirrors. Probably to I mean you know if you don't -- enough guy he could he could be your leadoff -- and yeah but I Grammy it's spring training show confidence to your beleaguered guys -- -- -- him winning games mean nothing and see yeah. And Owens yeah it decides to do anything this year. You know Donna -- closer gonna have to produce intelligence I think AJ struck out 33 times last night there are many that puts the ball in play so. It in and that's since he you know he projection of being maybe number two type that are right pitching wise for the White Sox. Being had -- Molina go out today he was roughed up a bit and he's a young kid he's got a long way to go. With -- gone. -- you look at it down -- them other than John Danks and no. Mean I -- have a huge years it peavy isn't more laid -- I think it's up and down rotation I think they're gonna miss early. More than more than most of their fans I think think very well and you know I I would say it's Danks because it was -- or Danks and they chose to keep the younger guy Danks with the potential but he's coming off. You know the worst year of his career when you -- until the Berlin. No I wouldn't have I would have signed Mark Burly two or three years ago so it wouldn't have gotten to this point would forget that point because that's over with. This winter would you -- over Danks. Yes I would have I. Traded John Danks John Danks was that ship now and you know they did offer -- around and and they couldn't get what they wanted they were looking for time. But they still had a chip they could play and I would not have let mark -- get away I thought that was amazing in your -- story he's driving ninety minutes each way good -- dog is done I think that's a bad idea. And stockholders figures that out because that's no way to prepare for a season to be going through South Florida traffic what we had his wife sitting in the seat next to end. And Jamie said if we don't come back to the White Sox we will sign with a team no let us have. Our pit Bulls because a lot of talented banned them. Turns out he signs in Florida and they're gonna do this ninety minutes each way communities crazy. I mean and do you think the Marlins I mean secret earlier lol. Ticked about that. Well I don't know if they're ticked about it but they should be concerned you know because it's just no way to really prepare and and I was surprised when I talked to him. Are getting out of place that you know even if he's going home half the time and -- and half the nights up there and and he did say he will stay up there sometimes he's gonna crash with Scott Linebrink I was in the Cardinals came up. Problem Gary Glover how about a named them the -- Yeah -- well in the Marlins camp Aaron Rowand -- there are so he has -- he has some people some places some -- he can sleep on the do you want your. Huge 58 saying a million dollar an -- Gagne is -- spring training hours at the regular season to. Well I'm in a regular season he'll be you know 1520 miles -- interested to sorrow right edge.
