I'm kind've surprised they didn't take one position player too considering the nagging injuries.

There probably will be. Charlotte's season ends on the 4th. Delmonico probably comes of the D.L., Brantley stays, and they probably bring up one or two more guys.

Do call-ups have to be on the 40 man roster?

Yes... but to be completely clear... they do not have to be on the 40 man before they are called up. But they have to be added to it if they aren't there already.

So on September 1 when rosters expand, the Sox call up no position players with Abreu hurt. Then, Leury goes down with a hand injury leaving only 2 back up catchers on the bench. The Sox are forced to use Narvaez at first base, a position he has not played since 2011 in rookie ball. I know that the season is lost and we are in a rebuild, but is this how a major league baseball club should operate?

Default Pathetic

There's not a post about last nights game, so I will make my comments here. Last nights game, on a very nice Friday night drew a whopping 13,585 paid customers, the lowest attendance in MLB last night. Believe me there were a lot less people there. I don't think they had 10,000 fans there. Maybe the low attendance was for the best. The game was PATHETIC. I knew this season was going to be bad, but it keeps getting worse. Hahn recently gutted our bullpen which was nothing but a big salary dump. The team now has a bullpen that features Bummer and Fullmer. I keep reading how good our Minor League system is and yet they bring up these 2 guys who can't get anybody out. It amazes me that the team keeps bringing up Fullmer. He couldn't get anybody out in the Minors and yet they keep promoting him. I think one of the great myths in this city is how much JR loves baseball. Bruce Levine in particular keeps saying that the only thing JR loves more than baseball is his family. JR might love baseball but I question as to how much he likes the White Sox. The team is at the bottom in MLB in wins, attendance and Tv ratings. The team and the franchise is a wreck. JR has no shame as he continues to laugh all the way to the bank.

Lopez had a quality start and the team is in the running for the #1 pick. "Mired in mediocrity" no more -- this team will bounce back strong in 2019. Things are going according to plan.

It makes no sense - NONE - to call up a full complement of 40 players right now.

We need those roster spots this offseason. If you add someone to the roster, you later have to expose them if you want to add someone else.

I swear, some people must ONLY look at the TV or the box scores, because they have zero understanding of the big picture.

At the risk of being completely callous, so what if Narvaez has to play a few innings at first base? Even if he gets hurt, like the freak injury to Toby Hall a decade ago, he's a backup catcher at best. Statistically he's more likely to get hurt catching than playing first.

This season - and 2018 - is about developing young players. And we have a lot of them and they need innings and at bats.

Exactly! Lopez, Giolito and Rodon pitching this weekend alone ought to make things interesting.

And let Fulmer start, too. He needs innings to work through his issues, and there aren't any more innings to be had in Charlotte after this weekend.

Just to be clear, you're bitching about the bullpen after a game where they gave up 1 hit and no walks and no runs in three innings, and you don't say a word about the good start by one of our prized prospects? Really?

I don't want to go again into how silly the whole "salary dump" argument is, I'm just curious what's more useful - a few more decent middle relievers in a pointless season, or somebody (anybody!) who can contribute to a contending team in a few yeas?

So true. It's amazing how some posters just don't "get it".

Great post. I think there's just a lack of understanding of things like the 40 man roster, service time, etc. for a lot of people. That's understandable, because those things are not understood by or interesting to a lot of fans. But it also seems like folks who don't think about those aspects are the loudest.
