Episode 85 is in the books as we try to piece together how the Chicago White Sox can progress through Spring Training without having Adam LaRoche's retirement bring them down.
Here is this week's rundown:
- Jim addresses how the White Sox as a whole can move forward after Jerry Reinsdorf's statement. How this impacts Robin Ventura's ability to manage the clubhouse? Does this impact the working relationship between Kenny Williams and Rick Hahn? How should Chris Sale and Adam Eaton move forward from their outbursts?
- Jesse Lund from Twinkie Town helps preview the Minnesota Twins 2016 season. What are the expectations for Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton entering their first full season? How will the starting pitching staff stack up against the AL Central? Can they overachieve again in '16, or will they struggle to surprise like they did last year?
- Rob Rogacki from Bless You Boys finishes our AL Central preview with a breakdown on the Detroit Tigers. What will be the impact that Justin Upton and Jordan Zimmermann provide? How new general manager Al Avila tackled rebuilding the bullpen, and how similar situation Brad Ausmus is to Robin Ventura's.
- Finally, your questions in P.O. Sox. Here are a couple that made the air:
@SouthSideSox Davidson, if he doesn't make the roster opening day, do you see him being added by end of year? Possible DH if Avi slumps?— Bill Coon (@thebillcoon) March 20, 2016
@SouthSideSox Can Avila/Navarro platoon to be the #2 hitter in the lineup?— Chorizy-E (@misterjesus) March 20, 2016
