Episode IV: A New Hope, Zack Collins

The White Sox’  10th overall draft pick in 2016

The Chicago White Sox had the 10th overall pick in 2016’s amateur draft. With this, they chose Zack Collins. This was not the first time that Collins had been in the draft, he was taken by the Reds at the 27th round in 2013. He turned it down, and went to Miami to attend on a baseball scholarship. This was apparently the correct option, as he led the Hurricanes to back to back college World Series appearances, and led the NCAA Division I in walks, with 78, and was second in OBP, with .544. Not surprisingly, this caused him to have a bit higher value in 2016. From all accounts, his bat makes him a strong contender for best all around hitting prospect out there. He’s currently ranked as the #80 prospect in all of baseball by MLB.com.

Now, the best part of it all? Collins is a catcher. A decent one at that. A decent catcher with a strong bat is a fantastic thing to come across, particularly when you know the history behind the last half decade of catching at the position in our organization, which could be argued as one of the worst in baseball. What I see is that Collins is the catcher the White Sox have needed for 5 years now, and is quite possibly the best person that could have come along while in our current rebuild. This isn’t some propaganda piece trying to pass him off as the next Roy Campanella, but when a team hasn’t had a catcher with more than 40 games hit above .240 since 2012, someone like this is a Godsend. If he can stay healthy, and if he develops to his potential, which the White Sox will do everything in their power to make sure it happens if they know what’s best for them, he’s predicted to be ready for our upcoming, much-anticipated 2018 season.

I firmly believe that Collins can develop into one of the centerpieces of the new and improved White Sox. Collins, Micheal Copech, and Reynaldo Lopez, both RHP valued highly as pitching prospects, are set to be ready by the 2018 season. Alongside Yoan Moncada, the top prospect in baseball, Luis Basabe, a switch-hitting center fielder set to take over our second weakest position, and Lucas Giolito, the #1 pitching prospect, give the Sox a huge potential for the 2018 season. Only time will tell how Collins will handle his performance, but personally, I cannot wait to see the guy in action. It’s a good time for a White Sox fan.

  1. Como Gelar A Cerveja Rápido

    Prestem atenção nessa dica, pois eu testei ela nuum churrasco esse termo de
    semana, e também fiquei bastante satisfeito! Aliás, um congratulação peculiar ao Guiga (
    @filhodopadeiro) doo Tudo Sobre Facebook , que me passou esse conhecimento milenar!

    A medida de caxa um desses ingredientes dependerá da quantidade de cerveja que se pretende gelar.
    Mass via dee regra, seria um saco de gelo, um litro dee água,
    um l de álcool e também meio quilo de sal.Após
    colocar todos oss ingredientes num recipiente, bastya acomodaqr as
    latas/garrafas de cerveja e aguardar por retornamento de 3
    minutos. Você poderá proporcioalizar essas medidas conforme a quantidade de cerveja que pretende gelar.

    sal se dissolve facilmente nna chuv e também reduz seu sinal dee congelamento.
    Pura, a chuva congela a cerca de 0 ºC. Já a chuva com sal precisa de uma temperatura menor, que é possível qque cuegar a dezenas de graus abaixo de zero.
    Enquanto sal é poisto no gelo, parte dos cubos derretem, roubando” calor durante a troca de estado físico e esfriando a mistura como um
    todo. Ou por outra, sal dissolvido provoca uma reação endotérmica,
    isto é, reduz mas a temperatura da mistura. álcool possui umm papel semelhante:
    dderrete gewlo roubando” calor e também diminui
    ainda mas pontfo de congelamento. É usado porque enquanto a temperatura ficar aquém -9 ºC, sal peerde alguma coisa doo
    efeito, porém álcool não.

    De olho no relógio: alumínio é bom condutor de calor,
    e também 3 minutos são suficientes porque as latinhas mergulhadas encontrem equilíbrio térmico.
    Como a temperatura estaca aquém zero, posteriormente pequenmo número
    de minutos, a bebida vai estar tão gelada que não vai conceder para
    sentir gosto e também periga gelificar. Deixe toalha de papel
    aspirar muito a água, e prontamente,leve aas cervejas para frigorífico.
    A chuva no papel vaai gelificar velozmente, formando uma camada dee gelo que esfria a poção.

    Dica: omem desvelo, poos dependendo do freezer a cerveja é possível que gelar numa rapidez absurda, deixando
    sua cerveja congelada, que não é legítimo. Mini Refrigerados USB
    Mais uum gadget alcoólico parea você não perder a ansa de tomar
    umma cervejinha geladésima no recreio do seu trabalho.
    Há nem tinha visto… a do nitrogênio é a melhor (moleza
    de encontrar) hahahahahha magnífico. adicionei aos favoritos….
    E que pergunta ali em cima do Leandro. Não funciona com outras bebidas não, só cerveja quue gela, as outras se colicar esquenta! http://Cervejeiromestre.Com.br/cerveja/como-gelar-mais-rapido/

You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
