    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.

    Lol...more huge money for RHHs. STOP!

    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...

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    NSC said otherwise.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    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.

    We need to add multiple lefty mashers. I'm not sure why people are struggling with this concept. I dont want to hear about Sheets. I dont want to hear "but where's Schwarber gonna play?". I'm tired of excuses and then getting exposed against halfway decent righty pitching. Get the savages. This was priority 1. And priority 2. And priority 3. Not dicking around with other things. Or throwing birthday parties for Minnie Minoso. Or pat themselves on the back for potentially getting another righty GB hitter at 2B when that's NOT what we needed. Or telling us how hard they are working. Get the damn savages.

    Uhh no. Adding a single LHH doesn't create a balanced lineup. Grandal isn't really that great against RHP and something happened to Moncada's power. Adding one guy is necessary but not sufficient. Conforto plus another crap righty at 2nd and no meaningful replacement for Rodon isn't a good offseason. Conforto does keep it from being an F though. Bring me lefty savages. Not one savage and a bunch of garbage half measures.

    Probably a grade of C.

    MLB 2021-2 off season thread

    Problem is they aren't gonna make two big signings, not even a 1 yr 20m deal for 2B after making a 4/80 or 5/100 for RF.

    So 20m for another righthander......no.

    Lol at Jimmy putting lipstick on a pig.

    2022 Offseason Plan Thread

    Yep. Were basically subsidizing their add on of Kimbrel by taking back high priced trash in Segura. Since they appear to be onto Conforto and also Schwarber from what I just read, this could boomerang on us. Maybe that's why they are refusing to pull the trigger and trying to lock down our guys first.

    2022 Offseason Plan Thread

    They can't deal with Philly unless we sign Conforto first as we could end up screwing ourselves.

    Conforto alone does not fill the need of insufficient offense vs RHP.
