    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    Defense up the middle wins championships. Robert is top notch, TA is mercurial and Leury is mediocre. Give me Simmons all day long (based on what is on open market) and watch all the pitchers ERAs drop by .25-.50, and especially Keuchels numbers.

    Cease hired Boras as agent

    I can't wait for the 50 page binder explaining how Dylan has HOF untapped potential and is the next Max Scherzer once he signs a big contract.

    Soxtalk Member Age Range

    Just turned 40. I joined here in 2006, but didn't use my account until 2017 and started a new one. Joined WSI in 2004, but def got burned out there and lurked on both for years. Was FrankThomasAnkle and KidMcCarthy in years past.

    Fangraphs features Luis Robert

    yeah, Andruw had a 4-5 year run that is incredible

    I wonder if Hahn checked in on Taylor and heard Dodgers were gonna resign...and that is what drew the quick trigger on Leury.

    Where could Kimbrel be traded, and for what?

    Agreed completely. What a horrible trade that came out to be...and I was a supporter of it big time. Really hope the CBA creates some favorable contract increases so that 16 mil number seems reasonable

    Where could Kimbrel be traded, and for what?

    Hypothetical: they cant find a taker...do you: A. Keep hendricks as a great closer and have a horrible set up man in Kimbrel which destroys any tradability come July Or B. Make Kimbrel the closer and if successful have the best setup / jam man in baseball (hendricks can work in any spot imo) and use Kimbrel as a great trade piece come July to use for whatever need the sox have. I know it sucks to do that to Hendricks...but I cant see A benefitting the team in any way.

    Report: MLB used two baseballs last year

    totally. Hahn calling up potential suitors: "Hey there (insert GM name), just wanted to talk about Craig again. We can assure you that you will get the dead ball version of him, the .54 ERA one. I called Manfred up, he agreed that part of the trade parameters includes Craig and 2 buckets of dead balls. K, thanks. Byeeee."

    Report: MLB used two baseballs last year

    So juiced balls came back...and Yoan's power numbers didn't significantly increase? that is worrisome. Also...good luck Rangers with Semien. This probably explains his explosion more than anything else. This story is insane if true. They literally could manipulate W/Ls for certain teams by supplying different balls if they wanted to.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    Was that guy sitting on a southwest flight next to TLR?

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    did this need to happen before the freeze? Seems like it could have been secondary to RF. I wonder what is up?

    This is mostly where I am at as well. Scherzer was never happening but Ray at his years/cost and a few others were not ludicrous or unreasonable. Just one really nice signing. Wheeler was the perfect example, and that sting just doesn't go away I guess.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    What a shame. truly a great ballpark and history with a rabid sports fanbase. Salary floor/cap really needs to be implemented in a fair manner

    oh man, that was the sentiment though. This isn't my take, that was the athletic/espn/everywhere. I am not saying Bulls are apples to apples, but seeing them go for it this off-season was so refreshing. Just wish the Sox would show a little effort that way. Was good with Graveman, hopeful that they get at least one nice piece for 2022.
