Oh damn I forgot to put my grades for the review. Better get on that.

As Cirensica

Seeing grades equal for Yoan and TA feels a bit of a downgrade to Yoan who was by a healthy margin better player than TA


I don’t feel that as much because of their talent disparity. Yoan was acquired to be an all-star, while I think most of us are thrilled with TA being a league-average SS.

I would add that not all “A’s” are created equal. TA grinded through homework and tests for a hard-fought 94. Yoan aced it all. 


I will pray for the embittered souls of the 4.2% of people that think Yoan Moncada only deserves a B. Also for that tiny sliver of folks who think Yonder Alonso deserved a B. 

Right Size Wrong Shape

They probably just had trouble clicking on the little buttons.


Haven’t seen this narrative used yet, so i want to start it or jump on its bandwagon.

We all saw the great Septembers Eloy, Tim, and Yoan had. We learned recently Menechino was up with the Sox throughout September. During September, the White Sox as a team combined for the 2nd highest Offensive War as a team, only trailing the Astros… Coincidence?

Clearly, this is the type of immediate impact we can expect from Menechino.
