Thanks for the podcast. So, for Fegan, the White Sox are more likely to add pitching than hitting? I think that’s the wrong strategy. Not only wrong, it has been a strategy KW/RH has used widely with terrible results.

I think this team is in high need of position players that produce a decent amount of fWAR. We don’t have that. Eloy is the only one coming that can produce. The rest is so far away. Not only that, but only Eloy is the only one that is a sure thing.

Yes, pitching and run prevention is important, but scoring runs is very important too. This playoffs has teams that not really have that great pitching (As, Braves, Brewers and Cubs), but they can manufacture runs. Yet, teams with great pitching like the Mets, DBacks, Phillies and the Mariners couldn’t make it.

I think the Sox farm has more pitching depth than hitting depth, so Hahn should focus on hitting. Not only that, but many of the pitching prospects are closer to contribute in the majors than the hitters.

If I were a wizard, I would pick Jason Heyward’s fielding skill to Daniel Palka. He will be a mosnter.

Wizard powers:
Giolito with the curveball he showed in Spring Training.

Palka with at least a .330 OBP.
Davidson to hit in 1 NL park (probably Atlanta or San Diego) like he did in KC. Trade him as a 2-way 3B/reliever/pinch hitter.
