Boy, does Rick Hahn have excellent timing announcing a signing.
Here is this week's show rundown:
- FINALLY! After many conversations about the White Sox adding another outfielder, a deal gets done during yesterday's win over San Diego for Austin Jackson. Jim shares his thoughts on the impact of adding Jackson, what this means for both Adam Eaton and Avisail Garcia, and what kind of flexbility Robin Ventura has with the lineup card.
- [16:11] Friend of the podcast, CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes, joins from Glendale with notes from camp. Hayes brings insight on Carson Fulmer's first start (as we couldn't watch it via stream), the status of Adam Eaton's shoulder and Adam LaRoche's back, and how the clubhouse is giving off a different vibe from last year, in large thanks to the new faces.
- [29:35] We kick off our AL Central preview's with the defending World Champion Kansas City Royals (gosh, that is getting old) and our friend from Royals Review, Max Rieper. He addresses how the Royals plan to work with the two holes on the field: second base and right field. As well as why Yordano Ventura needs to step it up, why the bullpen will remain one of the league's best, and how Ned Yost will have this team prepared for it's title defense.
- [44:03] Finally, we get to your questions on P.O. Sox. Here are the one's that made the air:
Who's the fourth man on the bench? Rollins, Avi, Avila/ Navarro, and ...? Does Carlos Sanchez make the team? @SouthSideSox— . (@soxwhite3) March 7, 2016
@SouthSideSox what's the long term solution for catcher? Navarro and Avila are only guaranteed for this season.— Richard Targaryen (@Rinnegan_Rich96) March 6, 2016
