Grandal can’t catch (well at least). Vaughn and sheets can’t play right field at all. And if Moncada could carry his weight we wouldn’t be so dependent on a “lefty bat” and could’ve gotten marte.
I need someone to draw up the Venn Diagram of White Sox fans who believe Yasmani Grandal can't catch but believe that Andrew Vaughn and Gavin Sheets can play RF.
It's a good plan, IMO. For those worried about Grandal not being able to catch 120+ games, I get it. It's a legit concern. But that's not a Grandal conversation. That's the "Why is the 2016 first-round pick still struggling" conversation.
Just for you, John, the next Sox Machine Player Review is going to be Yasmani Grandal.
Kind of hard to throw anyone out when the baserunner is halfway to second base by the time Grandal has the ball. White Sox pitchers did a poor job of holding runners last year. https://t.co/itFYHSyevj
That's a perfectly fine concern. I share it, too, but the FA backup catcher market is pretty thin. May need to trade for one.
@soxmachine_josh He's still only caught more than 120 games one time in his long career. My worry isn't that he's a bad catcher--he isn't. My worry is that the White Sox will have to find another catcher to catch about 60 games next year. Moreover he needs rest on his knees to be as productive.
Grandal can catch. We need to move away from this whole narrative. White Sox fans should know what bad catchers look like. Check the tape again when Grandal was on the IL.
