Fun With White Sox PECOTA Player Comparisons

PECOTA Day brings me a lot of joy for a lot of reasons, but one of the most fun aspects of its release, at least to me, is looking at the player comparisons. Like last year, I’ve picked out some of my favorite White Sox player comparisons — fun, unusual, exciting — as we continue […]

It’s been a long time since the White Sox had a single position player prospect worth getting as excited about as Yoan Moncada, Eloy Jimenez, or Luis Robert. Having a troika of players who should at worst be competent major leaguers is a delightful change and a reminder that things weren’t always so bleak. During […]
