Default 2019 draft

Is it too early to wonder which field position the White Sox will target for at the 2019 draft?

Baseball teams generally don't do this, especially at the top of drafts. But later in the draft I'd assume they'd look for more depth in the middle infield.

I want the catcher from Oregon State, but I am not sure he drops to three.

I agree Adley Rutschman looks awesome. A lot can change between now and next June though. Last year people were worrying the Sox were winning too many games to be able to draft Seth Beer. He ended up not getting drafted until late in the first round.

This time last year, that Beer kid was a shoe-in for first overall.

Cannot predict who will go when this far out.

He was only a shoe-in on this board, for some reason. I really think it was only the name.

This. Most publications did not have a bat-only 1B going first overall, or that high in general.

If you have the chance to add a Beer to your Burger, you have no choice but to do it.

But what about switch-hitting catchers who can hit for some power, good average, and have plus defense and footwork?

Only way he falls to the Sox is if he gets hurt bad or has a really bad year.

Then letís hope he goes to Baltimore, because I donít want to face Joe Mauer 2.0 in KC 18 times a year.

The silver lining to the Sox 5-game losing streak is that they've passed Detroit and Miami and are now tied with the Padres for 3rd in the race to the bottom.

Heading into the final week of the season and the Sox currently "lead" the race for that 3rd overall pick:

6. Tigers: 63-93
5. Marlins: 62-93
4. Padres 62-94
3. Sox 61-94

Never thought I'd be watching Padres and Marlins scores at the end of a season, but here I am.

After last night's games:

6. Tigers: 64-93
5. Padres 63-95
3T. Marlins: 62-95
3T. Sox 62-95

The Marlins have one rain-out that will not be made up.

Who has the tie-breaker between the Sox and Marlins (and Sox and Padres for that matter)?

I think the White Sox have the tie-breaker on account of them having a worse 2017.
