    Burger working out at 2B

    When is he going to work on hitting left handed?

    Why couldn't they at least move Kimbrel before the lockout, Jimmy?

    You have $30m to complete the roster...

    Fangraphs crowd source has Conforto with 17m (albeit on 1 yr assumption) and Schwarber 4/60 (15 AAV). For purposes of this hypothetical, since we cannot make trades to shed salary (or to open up spots, at DH for instance for Schwarber), you'd have to go with Conforto at the AAV of 17 (I doubt he will take this). Realistically though, in a real world post CBA, we should be able to shed Kimbrel, especially if we eat say 3-4m of that 16m salary. That still produces 12-13m in savings.

    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    What would McNeil cost, realistically? If it's too much, then go with Kemp. 2.5m for projected 2.1 war and helps balance the lineup a little bit too.

    Chris Taylor Resigns with the Dodgers

    Because we panicked at the price of the RF and/or SP market and had to cheapen out at 2B to make the math work elsewhere once there's a CBA. What do I win?
  6. I suspect Segura is not in the plans anymore because of Leury (they can deny this all they want but a cheap team isn't paying 5.5m a year for a backup). I think also they may know 4/68 or 5/85 may not cut it with Conforto so they need extra money by not assuming Segura's salary. An extra 14m would go a long way to securing Conforto. There's also been some talk that PHI has similar targets to us so helping them equalize the salary obligations in the trade might be counterproductive and would look really awful if they turned around and signed our guy.

    Report: MLB used two baseballs last year

    I'm sure the league will appreciate the timing.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    But it isn't chump change for THIS big league team. Or have you forgotten when they folded like a cheap suit with Machado but were willing to spend money to bring in his friends? Point is, a franchise this cheap needs to conserve every dollar for maximum impact, especially when they've underestimated the market already. I'm waiting patiently for multiple left handed savages and no Leury ain't one of them. Neither is Segura.

    Beat writers have a transactional relationship with teams where there us often a "price" to get info...

    NSC said otherwise.

    Yep. Leury RF Segura 2B. There's our position players guys.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    He isn't being paid 6m to be a utility guy when we are on a tight budget. Anything over say 12-13= starter.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    If they had to go the ultra cheap route at 2B to afford Conforto, the organization is an even bigger joke than I thought.

    What a brilliant diabolical plan. JR: Hold your horses guys,let's wait until the CBA and then you can spend real money. *All the choice FAs get signed* *CBA occurs* JR: OK guys, you can get your RF, 2B and SP now. RH: But Jerry all the best options are off the market now. JR: What a shame, sounds like your team is on the field.
