DateQuestionAnswer
2018-09-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Yolmer Sanchez as a player who will be with the White Sox when they are in contention?
(Nick from USA)
On the plus side, 2018 has shown us 2017 Yolmer (the ~90-95 OPS+ type) wasn't an aberrant career year but perhaps something he can sustain, rather than the pre-'17 pitcher-hitting type years. On the down side, him basically repeating that in a second year of regular at bats probably means this is about what you're going to get. Still, a 90-95 OPS+ from a bench bat is very useful, as White Sox fans have seen when you don't have one. Ray Olmedo and Orlando Hudson send their regards.

The x-factor here, and why I think he will be on the team for a long, long time is that he is clearly beloved in the clubhouse. By all accounts, Yolmer is just as fun and awesome to be around as his walk-off celebrations might indicate. Pair that with being a home grown contributor who can play a million positions, that sounds like a fixture to me. (Nick Schaefer)
2008-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)It's not like I have work or anything... a few more Tommy Johnnies from Baseball Reference's Wiki: Roberto Alomar, Jay Buhner, Jose Guillen, JR House, Todd Hundley, Trey Lunsford, Carlos Martinez, Ray Olmedo, Luke Scott, Taylor Teagarden, Tony Womack. Are catchers are more susceptible to UCL injuries?
(Gump from nyc)
No, though you'd think they would be. It seems like it's 2B for some reason. (Will Carroll)
