Abreu, Iguchi, Fukudome (for 1 season at least), Darvish, Cespedes, etc all had not played in the states either and they worked out pretty well.

The only player the Sox have who I would definitively put ahead of Luis Robert is Lucas Giolito.

We have no idea if he has feel to hit. We know Jimenez does.

Yesterday you said you need to judge headers based on playing higher and better competition. Eloy Jimenez has 90 games above single-a. You think that's enough to make the determination if he has the feel to hit?

You talk out of both sides of your ass so often it's not even funny. You change your ways all the time to fit your narrative. It's a joke.

The reality that the Sox farm really isn't that special is proving a little rough on Sox fans.

You think that reality has hit home?

They currently rank #2 in all of MLB according to Bleacher Reports

Farm System Snapshot

Yoan Moncada, Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez all exhausted their prospect status last season, yet the Chicago White Sox remain firmly entrenched at the No. 2 spot in these rankings.

Eloy Jimenez and Michael Kopech both have superstar talent and could debut on the South Side at some point in 2018.

Cuban phenom Luis Robert didn't take long to show why he was worth a $26 million bonus last May, hitting .310/.491/.536 with 12 extra-base hits in 114 plate appearances in the Dominican Summer League. His stateside debut will be among the most anticipated in years.

Alec Hansen, Dylan Cease and Dane Dunning all look like potential impact starters, while Carson Fulmer has electric stuff that still might play better out of the bullpen in the long run.

Spencer Adams, Jordan Stephens and Zack Burdi are also intriguing arms a bit further down the rankings, while Micker Adolfo, Luis Alexander Basabe and Gavin Sheets are among the hitters to watch.

Expect to see a steady stream of prospect talent arriving in the scene for the White Sox in the years to come. They've assembled a collection of young talent that could allow them to emerge as a perennial contender once they're ready to make that push.
