If Adam LaRoche’s WAR were higher, there would be no war over his son

2019年06月14日 by okinawa-news

If Adam LaRoche hadn’t hit .207 Wil Myers Jersey with 12 home runs,44 RBIs and a WAR of negative-0.8last year, and hadn’t struggled with back problems during spring training, do you think for one second that the White Sox would have raised a stink about his son being in the clubhouse all the time?Don’t be stupid. In baseball, as in all sports, perks go to those who perform. Whether it’s something like Barry Bonds having a special lounge chair in the Giants’ clubhouse during his playing days, or something much more sinister like the Cowboys being willing to have Greg Hardy on their team, the me sage is always clear: If a team believes you can help it win on the field, there are no lengths it won’t go to in order to have you there.PHOTOS: Meet Drake LaRoche MORE: MLB’s best father-son combosLaRoche stunk last year, and was having physical i sues this year, so whether or not any White Sox players or coaches suddenly had i sues with young Drake LaRoche, the opportunity existed for Chicago management to take action that would at least rattle his cage and at most force him out. LaRoche decided to walk away.Two weeks ago, in Glendale, Ariz., there was no appearance of any trouble. Drake LaRoche was in the clubhouse both with his dad and during times when Adam left the room. LaRoche’s locker was in a veteran-heavy corner of the clubhouse, by players like Adam Eaton and Todd Frazier, who gave no appearance of being the slightest bit uncomfortable with the teenager in their midst.Nearby, new White Sox second baseman Brett Lawrie https://www.padresedges.com/san-diego-padres/wil-myers-jersey dropped some profanity into a conversation with a teammate nothing wrong with that, nothing a 14-year-old hasn’t heard. It was busine s as usual, players preparing for a season, with the happenstance that, yes, one of their teammates’ sons was there.Is it po sible that some White Sox players did have a problem with LaRoche’s son being in the clubhouse all the time? Sure. Is it po sible that they went so far as to raise it with management, rather than confronting a teammate directly? Yes. Would anything have happened if the White Sox had an expectation that their 36-year-old designated hitter would get back to being a significant contributor after being below replacement level in 2015? Not a chance.MORE: MLB’s most controversialplayers of all timeThe White Sox now get to save $13 million, which allows them to be more flexible at the trade deadline if they are contenders this year. They get to move Avisail https://www.padresedges.com/san-diego-padres/eric-hosmer-jersey Garcia, a defensive nightmare, to the DH spot while using a speedy outfield trio of Eaton, Melky Cabrera and Austin Jackson. And, in an ugly way, they might have fostered a kind of team unity that they didn’t know was po sible.Whether Kenny Williams really does a sume the role of Rachel Phelps from Major League in the storyline of the 2016 White Sox season remains to be seen. In the meantime, Williams has, albeit sloppily, managed to excise a bad contract from the Chicago payroll. If LaRoche hadn’t been that, none of this would have happened.
