    2019 MLB draft thread

    Has anyone been watching Vaughn lately? With him being the best hitter on the team I wonder if he’s swinging at bad pitches because he doesn’t want to take the walks. Is he trying to do too much, or completely getting blown away?

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I found this article about a catcher in the Royals system that they’re high. Wonder if this would make them out on Adley? More to keep an eye on: After a strong first full professional season, there's little doubt that MJ Melendez is the heir apparent to Salvador Perez behind the plate in Kansas City. Melendez possesses good power, finishing 2018 with 19 homers and 73 RBIs, but needs to tighten up his approach to become a more well-rounded hitter. He's also good defensively, throwing out more than 40 percent of would-be basestealers and showing overall strong poise as a backstoprofessional season.

    Hahn on Manny Loss...

    Sounds valid to me. You are the “insider” we’ve all been waiting for!

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    If it’s all guaranteed money I wouldn’t be so down on this FO if that’s what we offer. If Harper gets more than that from someone else, so be it.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I guess stupid money meant here’s our offer that we feel is good enough, and Harper would be stupid for taking it

    Everyone has been shitting on Nightengale and Heyman for their tweets, and it’s accepted. Why is that, and his post are ok?

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    No shit! Everyone’s opinion to him is wrong and he tells them they are. Unless he was at the damn table what his opinion is no more reliable than anybody else’s opinion.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    And with this reported offer by the White Sox the Miami Marlins sign Bryce Harper to a 10 year $326 million contract. The Marlins use the money they got back in the Stanton deal to give it to Harper. Physical still pending, of course.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    If the Sox are serious about free agents next year I feel like they should wait til February to jump in and be the “mystery team.” Being “at the table” in December means you have to wait 2 more months for something to happen because the offer we made wasn’t good enough. Hahn can keep his “at the table” bullshit narrative for himself. Someone in this front office needs to be hired that specializes in getting the deals done.

    If they’re for Alonso’s daughter why can’t she post them?

    SOXFEST Running Thread

    I hope this is via trade pending Machado/Harper signing. Keuchel is a #3 at best. The rest of the free agent starters are #5. None of them help will help accelerate the rebuild.

    The Future of First Base

    NSS72, what are your feelings about drafting a guy like Vaughn if the Sox have several options for the same position?

    The Future of First Base

    If Sheets, Burger, and Collins seem to be the unanimous choice should we really be looking to draft a player like Andrew Vaughn in the upcoming draft if Adley is selected 1/2? People believe you don’t draft for “need” but when do you stop drafting guys that are projected for the same position?

    It took awhile to find the hat Manny is wearing, but here it is.

    Definitely not this hat

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    So you’re not looking to sign a good pitcher, just someone who can be a plug-in?

    Why? How many #5 starters does a team need?

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Once free agency started I felt the Sox were trying to get both of these guys. I suggested 10 at $375 mil for Harper, and 10 at $300 mil for Machado. Many people thought it would take more than $675 mil to get these two. Where it stands now if the Sox can get both for less than $675 mil I think they’d consider it a win. With Harper in right, Machado at 3B, Eloy in left, Abreu at 1B/DH I feel like they try to trade for a 1 or 2 type pitcher so they can go for the division this year. I was thinking Grienke, but not sure if he’s still considered a 1 or 2 type pitcher anymore?

    I’d assume “Hahn speak” is on full blast at one of these things? I’d love to ask a question, but would hate to get a typical Hahn answer.

    Has anyone been to the fan questions to management part of Soxfest? I was wondering how that goes about? Do you have to be selected to participate? Is it free with admission? How many people are allowed to participate? Etc.
