Another offseason, another pace of play article. The White Sox may be at a slight advantage if there were any major rules added to speed up the game considering most of their future starters are in the minors where the pitch clock is already a thing. However, probably the bigger win in a rule-shift scenario is that we won’t have to listen grizzled old veterans complaining about new rules and bat flips while Hawkaroo drones on about the game losing its ways.
It’s worth noting that Daniel Palka received one third place vote, which is outstanding. The White Sox should have a couple more ROY candidates coming through the pipeline. If Jimenez can stay healthy he’s an obvious candidate, but don’t sleep on Dylan Cease.
