Josh and Jim breakdown James McCann’s hot start to 2019. Is this a repeat of Avisail Garcia’s 2017 season? Does extreme BABIP luck lead to an All-Star appearance? If so, is McCann now the primary catcher while Welington Castillo becomes the backup? And does McCann have a long-term future with the White Sox?
We also discuss Charlie Tilson’s staying power, Lucas Giolito’s balanced pitch mix, preview the White Sox vs. Indians series, and answer your questions in P.O. Sox.
@soxmachine_josh Even though he homered today, Alonso has been terrible. Is there any chance when Jimenez comes back that Alonso will be DFA? It would be better to give the time to Cordell, Tilson, and Delmonico/Palka anyway.— Mike Lox (@mike_lox) May 12, 2019
If Leury can stay healthy, is he part of the long term plan?— Paul Riker (@paulriker) May 13, 2019
If one month from now the Sox are still three games out of a wild card spot, do you bring up Cease? Robert? Seby and/or Collins? Hansen? I guess what I’m asking is if you jump start the rebuild and start learning who can give the team a jolt.— Gucas Liogito (@GucasLiogito) May 12, 2019
