  1. This was discussed on the radio yesterday afternoon. Last year there were something like eight 34-year old players in the ENTIRE league that had over 550 PA's. Now that we're out of the steroid era it's pretty much in the single digits every year (compound that with the fact that rosters are getting younger). As a player, to assume you're going to make 550 PA's in your mid thirties (even without team manipulation) is a fools bet.

    TWO THINGS: - To those SoxTalk-ers that were adamant that signing Manny was (paraphrasing) "never going to happen" because "this is the White Sox we're talking about" and "what in their history makes you think they'll pull this off" ..... you were right. The rest of us owe you a big apology and you us a big fat I Told You So. - I've never been a member of the Reinsdorf Is A Cheap Bastard club. But after this I'm left with no other conclusion. If the difference ended up being 2 years and $50M, Keith Olberman pretty much summed it up:

    I'm not even sure the Pads are "smarter". It might be they just have bigger balls and ponied up 300 guaranteed.

    I was thinking that some of those clauses were probably related to MVP. So, yeah, you have to hope that Betts and Trout break a leg in order to get paid. Okay, sign me up!

    30M AAV and an opt out after 5 years and they can’t beat that?!?!? I’m generally one to realize business is business, and I’m not a “rick/Kenny/jerry sucks” guy ..... but this flat out blows. Hard to support our FO after this

    Here's a possibility I haven't heard anyone mention: what if Moncada playing 3B is so that they can offer Manny SS as a final enticement? (What would happen to TA? I have no idea.) And, NO, I'm not saying I like that idea but we are in White Sox bizarro world now, so who knows.
