Podcast: Carlos Rodon – The Rising Ace

Guest: Scott Merkin, MLB.com

The Rundown:

  • MLB.com’s Scott Merkin joins the show to share the latest out of the White Sox clubhouse. Is Carlos Rodon ready to take the next step forward and lead the White Sox rotation? Are the White Sox ready to move Dylan Covey to the bullpen? What is the mood in the locker room with the team 42-75?
  • Greg Nix fills in for Jim Margalus this week as we discuss if Rodon is the best starting pitcher in Chicago right now. Can Adam Engel win a Gold Glove in 2018? Preview not only White Sox vs. Tigers, but also Eloy Jimenez vs. Vlad Guerrero Jr. this week.
  • PO Sox we cover who might get traded this month, if Zack Collins will be promoted to AAA, and if this rebuild is actually building waves of talent or if it’s just one wave.

Episode flagged for including a Ryan Bukvich reference without a trigger warning. That aside, Greg’s point about perspective is healthy as we endure our Samuel Beckett wait for talent to arrive in Chicago.

Agreed, thanks for the refreshing optimism, Gnix!
