My entire interest in this team on a game-to-game basis is Moncada and a few of the starting pitchers.

Abreu has been a beast this year as well. He may end up being the premier power hitter available at the deadline.

Avi being hurt makes you realize how much of a black hole the bottom of the order is. Yolmer has also been encouraging.

At the White Sox web site the headline is saying "missed opportunities." So true.

I see where Delmonico made another error in left field and Shields gave up six hits and four walks in six innings.

Infante was his usual self as well.

No sense getting angry anymore.

This is the reality. Just hope the next five months pass quickly, some kids make progress and nobody else gets hurt.

This team has been playing better. I am a big fan of this infield from an offensive standpoint. The outfield is a black hole of garbage. Those minor league prospects can't come here soon enough.

He is so underappreciated. Unbelievably consistent year in and year out.

I know, but I expect that from him, which somehow makes it less interesting? Weird.

I think our infield may be set. Yolmer is on pace for 5.5 WAR this year. Maybe heís the long-term future for third base. What he doesnít bring with home run power, he makes up for with speed, good average, doubles and triples, and excellent defense.

Thankfully, outfield and pitching are our strengths in the minor leagues.

These are the only numbers that matter as far as James Shields is concerned.

Innings pitched in his starts: 6.0, 5.0, 6.1, 5.1, 6.0

Batters faced in his starts: 25, 24, 27, 27, 28

Pitches thrown in his starts: 97, 91, 100, 111, 108

He is giving the team bottom-of-the-rotation results, but he also is giving the team top-of-the-rotation usage rate.

He is trash, but he is OUR trash.

He reminds me a bit of Joey Votto in terms of how well he plays, and how little he is recognized.

I saw the game yesterday and never appreciated how much James Shields grunts with each pitch. I don't know if he has always done that, but he sounded like a guy who is reaching back for anything he has left.

If the Sox decide to trade Abreu at the deadline, I wonder what he might fetch in return. Unless I'm mistaken, he's under team control through next year. I would imagine that a team making a playoff push would benefit greatly from a guy that is almost a lock for 30+ HRs and 100+ RBI. What's amazing is that he's been able to do this with very little in the way of protection.

He is an automatic top 10 prospect trade bait depending on who wants him. The Astros? Ask for one of their top prospects? The Twins? The Yankees? The Phillies?

I can see the Sox asking for Mejia, Bichette, Rodgers, etc. There's a lot going on here that could work. Especially for a contender.

With that said, I am not overly comfortable with the idea given his value to some of the younger guys (especially Moncada and Robert).
