That’s my guess too. And with his fine catching he will be considered a steal.

I agree with your assessment about Zunino now that he's gone. He will likely be an All-Star however, that wasn't going to happen here. This f'n organization couldn't fix his swing but I bet it will get fixed in short order now. We're the same AAAA farm system for MLB that we've always been and that doesn't look like changing any time soon. If I was Mike Blowers, I'd put the word, "typically" in there somewhere. :P

I find it hard to believe that a player with great home spits is somehow genetically predisposed to only be able to hit in that one stadium. I think its more likely once they are traded they would tend to adjust to the new home stadium and begin to hit well there too


I always thought it had to do with players going home to the wife after home games and going out on the town when you are on the road. Probably harder to hit with a hangover :D


wasn't for the Mick!

I've never had more patience for a .190 hitter, or wanted to see a guy have enduring success than Mike Z.
I don't root for just the stats but I root for the man under the cap.
Good luck to him moving forward, he is one outstanding individual who I will sorely miss.

Would anyone trade two years of reliever Alex Colome with a projected 2019 salary of $7.3 million to the Chicago White Sox for 31-year-old catcher Welington Castillo, who is owed $7.25 million in 2019 with an $8 million team option, or $500,000 buyout, for 2020?

After being hit with an 80-day PED suspension in May, Castillo lost his starting gig with the White Sox to promising catcher Omar Narvaez.

Steamer projects Castillo with a 2019 WAR of 1.5 in 75 games and Colome with a 2019 WAR of 0.5 in 65 appearances:

Veteran Nate Jones is currently listed as the closer for the White Sox, who many speculate will spend heavily in the free agent market this offseason:

Would the White Sox even be interested in Colome, the 2017 American League leader in saves?

Castillo served a brief six-game sentence with the Mariners in 2015 when Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik traded Yoervis Medina to the Cubs for Castillo on May 19 and then on June 3 traded Castillo in package to the Diamondbacks for Mark Trumbo and Vidal Nuno:

I totally agree, he is an All-American type guy, “salt of the earth,” I will miss him.

He will hit 25 hrs, drive in 75, and hit .250. I recall the team was 62-37 with him behind the plate.

This trade could very well be a loser.

This team didn’t him to be a good hitter, his handling of the pitching staff was clearly of superior quality.

Meanwhile, Smith, who hails from Tallahassee, may well be disenchanted with leaving home for a far away loser organization, and will hit say, .235.
