    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    I’m huge on NE and DDH IPAs. Drinking Noon Whistle Gummy Vortex and Saint Errant Takers and Leavers right now. I’ll have to grab some Gummy Banter.
  3. Well, no, I’m not projecting anyone’s bat based on their defensive prowess. What I’m saying is I’m perfectly fine with the Sox going one more year with Jose at first base before he gives way to Vaughn, and then Jose filling the DH role in the final two years of the contract. As the reigning RBI champion of the American League who also hit 33 homers while posting an .834 OPS last year, he’s given no indication that he’s not able to deliver that level of production through his age 35 season. If he was EE’s age and they offered him a three year contract, then yes, that would be concerning. But he’s not. He’s “only” 33, and with the type of protection he’s finally going to get in the Sox’ lineup over the next few years, his production at the plate will more than likely be one of the least of the team’s concerns.
  4. This is such a shitty argument that I keep seeing. How many players in baseball have we seen that never reached their potential? Castellanos has PROVEN production and PROVEN improvements. He has made actual improvements for 3 straight years while Mazara has made basically zero. Being 24 years old is not an attribute, skill, or tool. I guess we should throw Carson Fulmer in the rotation or trade for Lewis Brinson because they can still get better? It's the same shitty argument. Mazara is not a win now move, I'm sorry but no matter how you try to use gymnastics here that trade is nothing short of a gamble. A gamble that he might be a platoon bat with still shitty defense, not really much of a ceiling there. This is a move the Sox should have made last year, not when their window opens. I also know the Sox aren't signing Castellanos, that doesn't mean I still won't think this trade makes no sense.
  5. Today
  6. Because you are projecting an awful defensive 1B to continue having a good bat for 3 years instead of going year to year, which is EXACTLY why the EE deal is good. They aren't locked in after 2020. He was also a more productive player than Abreu last year despite being injured. Age is always a concern, which is why the Abreu deal is bad and completely unecessary.

    Where is Jake Burger?

    Hahn said he was shut down last fall and we will see what happens in spring.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    I've tried a lot of beer in the past year, and got royally addicted to buying every DDH IPA I could get my hands on. It has given me the opportunity to taste some awesome beers, but there have been plenty of duds as well and frankly, I really can't afford to be dropping the coin I was dropping. Heard my Binny's has some Gummy Banter in stock, though... might have to go get some of that because that's one of my all time favorites from Noon Whistle.

    Just Because The Twins signed Donaldson.......

    Sox definitely have a good chance. Twins have a monster line up but sox lineup is pretty good too and rotation should be better. There is uncertainty in the sox rotation but even more in the twins rotation

    This photo is so f***ing badass. Only Robert is missing. Looks like the cover of a CD

    That's why I'm not letting us retain him bother me a ton. He may not be elite, but I don't think he's hurting us with his play, and its clear his role with some of the players.

    That was enjoyable
  15. I like having EE in the lineup. If he has a good year, he's really going to help make us legit. Surprised we haven't traded McCann yet. He can't be happy. I'd dump him for a reliever. That'd be huge.
  16. Moan4Yoan

    Just Because The Twins signed Donaldson.......

    Agreed. Very close on WAR but Donaldson (34) is 3 years older than Grandal (31).

    Just Because The Twins signed Donaldson.......

    I’d take grandal over donaldson

    He is terribly boring. Wow.

    Soxfest news and notes

    Yeah I kind of gathered this from his initial interviews when he signed with the Sox

    Abreu was absolutely hilarious with Yoan and Robert. Yoan definitely worked on his English. Grandal is not a very exciting interview.

    Eloy looks good. Stay healthy, my dude.

    Soxfest news and notes

    While we all await the Castellanos soxfest surprise, figured I'd start a thread. CSN Plus is covering everything. Eloy says "fuck no to playing dh", says Luis Robert is the second coming of Mile Trout, and that the sox will male the playoffs.

    The Beer Thread

    Yeah, where is he. We've had many good beer discussions.

    Where is Jake Burger?

    If you look at the feed from other beat writers nobody else mentioned Jake Burger. The term June-ish was used by Hahn when talking about Dane Dunning. It's crazy how one tweet just took off.
  25. YouCanPutItOnTheBoardYES!

    Steve Stone Hinting At Another Move: Not Puig / Castellanos

    I’m expecting them to bring Yolmer back any day now.
