    Why Jim Callis thinks Luis Robert is going to have a gigantic impact on White Sox

    Jim Callis thinks the Luis Robert signing is going to have a gigantic impact on the organization well beyond adding another elite talent. When Robert officially joins the White Sox sometime next week, Callis projects the Cuban outfielder will initially be ranked the No. 27 prospect in baseball on MLBPipeline.com. That ranking is one spot ahead of Atlanta Braves shortstop Kevin Maitan, who previously was the No. 1 prospect in the 2016-17 international class. But Callis likes the deal — reportedly worth between $25-30 million — because of what it could mean for the White Sox under the rules of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement where the playing field is leveled.

    Braves make things right after security guard takes ball from kid, ejects fan

    Taking candy from a baby is okay, but taking a baseball from a young baseball fan because of fan interference is a little over the top. During Wednesday night’s game between the Atlanta Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates, a fan reached over the railing on a fair ball hit by Braves’ third baseman Rio Ruiz down the first base line. A SunTrust Park security guard then not only ejected the man who had reached onto the field, BUT HE ALSO TOOK THE BALL FROM THE KID. The Braves didn’t let this injustice stand. According to ESPN, the Braves gave the young boy a baseball autographed by star first baseman Freddie Freeman and tickets to another game next month. This isn’t the first time a Braves security guard
