5@5: Who should lead off for White Sox?

Best of 670 The Score
Friday, February 21st
Mike Mulligan and David Haugh conducted the daily 5 at 5 segment, which began with a discussion about White Sox manager Rick Renteria's proclamation that third baseman Yoan Moncada or shortstop Tim Anderson would hit first and second in the lineup in some order without confirming who would lead off. Who should bat first? The guys then discussed Cubs manager David Ross' plan to have first baseman Anthony Rizzo bat second in the order behind third baseman Kris Bryant. Does the early decisiveness of Ross suggest he'll act independently of the team's front office? The morning crew also discussed the Bulls having interest in hiring Pacers general manager Chad Buchanan as they look to add to their front office, according to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago. Can the Bulls attract a big-name executive or is their addition likely be a individual doing the job for the first time? The guys also debated whether Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was trolling fans when he posted a picture on his Instagram account with Bears linebacker Khalil Mack. Is that a real sign that Carr has interest in coming to Chicago if Las Vegas cuts him? Finally, the guys had a debate about the idea of the NFL adopting a 17-game season. If the expansion of the regular season creates enough extra revenue to help pay the bills of retirees, is that enough to justify the health risks for current players? (2/21/20)
