    White Sox Bryce Harper FA pitch spoiler?

    Same with me. Previously I preferred Machado. As this goes on, I more and more prefer Harper. Both for leadership, on field play, attitude and feeling safer he will give it his all for a long contract more than Manny might.
  2. So Jerry spends big every 15-20 years. Fisk....Belle....Machado/Harper....

    Hahn on The Score this morning

    Thanks for linking the interview. I don't think there's anything there that changes the situation as I knew or figured it. While I hope they sign one of the big guns, I would be shocked if it actually happens. I'm an expecting a 'valiant' effort that lands the in 2nd place with one of them.

    9/29/18 White Sox @ Twins

    What exactly is he pleased about? The under-performing prospects? The bad fundamentals? The team mailing it in?

    2018 Post Mortem

    I agree that many things went the wrong way this year. However, there's still quite a bit to be excited about. I mean, Eloy has the potential to be one of the best hitters in White Sox history. I don't want to put too much on a guy that hasn't even debuted yet, but man does he looks promising. That the Sox have so many promising players...it allows for some injuries or busts, etc. Blake Rutherford had a very nice bounceback year. He showed a little more power, and hopefully that continues to grow next year. I'm surprised you put him in the disappointing column. I'm still cautiously excited for the future. But I think the fanbase needs needs a jolt from the front office. Find a way to get Machado or Harper here. Something to excite us. They owe us something big.

    Taking a hiatus at the end of the baseball season

    Yep. And yeah, the Bears is a testy subject right now. The team looks soooo good outside of Trubisky.

    Sox have "flexibility" to add "long term pieces"

    This makes me think Moncada might be moving. Maybe if Machado is missed on (as is likely), Moncada moves to third next year? It opens 2B for Madigral in about a year.

    The excitement will be through the roof if they sign Machado, and we know Eloy will be here a few weeks in to the season.

    I enjoy your posts, both here and on HF. I hope to see you sitck around, in whatever capacity works for you.
  10. I've figured for the last few months that Steverson getting canned is pretty much a lock. Moncada alone with guarantee that. The investment in him is so great, and you figure they will want to try a different approach.

    Race for the worst 2018 record (Top 5 pick) again

    Hell no. The Sox getting a potential impact player is infinitely more important than rooting against the Cubs. Especially in the 3 or 5 or 6 range. Often there's a few big guns at the top of a draft and then a fall-off.

    Rebuild= Epic Fail

    No doubt the rebuild has gone backwards a bit this year. But I'm still hopeful. There's a lot to look forward to still. I think the onus is on the Sox to do something this winter that will excite the fanbase. I want to see a big free agent signing. Pair that player up with Eloy next year, and the future will hopefully look a lot brighter a year from now.

    Hahn confirmed: No Eloy in '18

    Also Vlad is 2 1/2 years younger than Eloy. Despite the slightly better numbers, there's just more of a case to keep him down than there is with Eloy.

    Hahn confirmed: No Eloy in '18

    They have broken many of those molds in the last year or two. And going just before the turn of the century,. they did break the bank for Albert Belle. I think they'll be willing to spend. But the player has to want to come here too.

    Hahn confirmed: No Eloy in '18

    I doubt they'd offer him a deal before he's even debuted. What if he is the next Jorge Solar?

    Hahn confirmed: No Eloy in '18

    I guess we'll benefit from it, but it feels kind of douchy to me. Oh well, cya in April Eloy.

    8/26 GT - KOPECH DAY (PART 2)!!

    They did the right thing not bringing him back in the 7th. He was getting hit really hard in the 6th. You let him end his day feeling good and go from there. If he had come back out in the 7th and got bombed, people here would of been calling for Ricky's head.
  18. You could see the ball very slightly change directions. It him him, barely.
  19. That was a great read. Thanks!

    Garfien/Cooper podcast

    Good insights on the pitchers. He whines a lot though.

    8/7 Games

    I wouldn't be interested in any deal that moves Cease, Dunning or Kopech. Heck not even Hansen given his deflated value right now. Don't want to sell low on anybody.

    KW on Jimenez/Kopech

    Or they could sign them to extensions at some point and render this whole debate about service time moot.
