    Offseason Targets

    Cory Kluber now a free agent. I’ll bid $7M.

    Offseason Targets

    Kolten Wong, Brad Hand let go. It’s going to be a 1929 style crash in player salaries. Kris Bryant sure to be released. Someone may take him for 10-12 $M. For $20M a team could pick up a whole bullpen.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    That steroid stuff is past the statue of limitations. If Tony gets Eloy to hustle in left field, I don’t care if he’s a little put out. Hopefully we’ll see some sharp, crisp, intelligent baseball here.

    Pitching Coach Candidates

    Alec Hansen was Zaleski’s protege. Just sayin.
  5. Is anybody on here rooting for the Astros in this series? I didn’t think so. This scandal will have legs. The fans were absent this year but you’ll hear the boos next season. Our fans don’t deserve this baggage, especially with Bochy available out there.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Hahn practically spelled out Hinch’s name with the qualities he’s seeking. I think he’s floating a trial balloon on this to see what kind of protest rises up. I don’t want him. What Hinch condoned wasn’t a mistake, but a character flaw. Bochy would be a 5star pick.

    An honest question about Vaughn

    Trade Vaughan to the Red Sox for left-handed right fielder Verdugo. Seems fair.

    9/26 GT: Cubs @ Sox (6:10pm)

    So many permutations yet in the seeding. Yanks only 1 game up on blue jays, with the head-to-head at 5-5. Can’t say who has better intradivision there. Twinx probably dreading Yanks. Looks like Sox will be #2 or3 or4 or7.

    Fire Ricky

    Does anyone here really believe Colome was having back spasms that other game? Our bench coach, and Cooper, are just as bad.
  10. For 2021 the owners will be wanting to cut payroll to the bone. There will be a lot of Arb 3 and Arb 4 guys let go. For $5M there should be lots to choose from. Wouldn’t surprise me if Colome only gets $15/2.
  11. Sox would like to get some quick looks at Rodon coming out of the bullpen before they tender him in the off season. I’m sure they’re getting tired of the Carlos Rodon experience.
  12. Jose now close to the the New Era Triple Crown: OPS. 1st, WRC+. 1st, WAR 0.1 behind Jose Ramirez.

    Sox @ Reds GT 9/20/20

    I believe you need 187 PA for the 60 game season to qualify for batting title. Timmy now right at 187. He good.

    Sox @ Reds GT 9/19/20

    If Mazara lights it up this last week he’ll punch his ticket here for 2021.

    9/18 White Sox @ Reds at 6:10

    They need to interview Grandal after the game. He was thunderstruck by Crochet.
