    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Someone already updated Wikipedia with him on the Sox. People are nuts.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Best case really is Yankees sign Cole and Dodgers resign Ryu. That would leave Sox vs Angels as mains for Strasburg. I know it's a pipedream, but those odds are much better than with yankess and dodgers involved

    FA SP: What to do after the Wheeler miss?

    Gallen would be a game Changing Pickup. It only happens though if Moncada moves to second...not sure I love that. Unless savings from getting Zac allows for a Rendon signing. But that is crazy talk

    Pirates officially are open to Marte. This is ideal. What's it take? Collins and Basabe and???
  5. I think Dunning has a stellar year. He really showed some flashes before the TJ. I think he becomes a number 3 starter QUICKLY. I honestly think Kopech is going to be our Jose Contreras. He is going to dominate some games and totally crap himself others...but have an absolute 1.5 season peak where he is a top 3 MLB pitcher. I don't expect him to really have a long fruitful career, but I see in 2022 or 23 him going on an unbelievable run. Cease is the biggest conundrum. He has #2 potential, but not sure if he ever is more than a #4. If you sign Strasburg or Ryu even...it doesn't matter...he will be the #4 the next several seasons anyway. Rodon is done. If he shows any type of improvement he is getting traded.

    On to Plan B

    I say we don't have a chance in hell on Cole. Why not Strasburg? The White Sox were willing to offer 24/mil a year for Wheeler. Strasburg will command a 5 or 6 year deal and realistically a 31-33 mil AAV. How is that out of their realm since his fWAR alone more than makes up that difference in Salary from Wheeler and then some. He is honestly the perfect fit for the team and window of contention. Obviously bidding against the Nationals and Yankees will be difficult, but it's time to step up and become elite with one Marquee FA.

    Tsutsugo - Sox Potentially Interested

    this move would scream Kenny Williams trying to outthink himself. Hard pass unless it's DH only.

    The Myth of RIck Hahn the Closer/PPTer Extraordinaire

    Fuck this thread and anyone who takes it seriously

    On to Plan B

    They are doing the rounds with Cole and Strasburg. Based on Price may push them to him. But they will be a big threat on Strasburg for sure.

    On to Plan B

    Strasburg. Should have been #1 priority all offseason and now...He HAS to be. Best case scenario is that MadBum signs with the Twins or Angels and that leaves Stras and Cole for Sox and Yankees respectively.
  11. Sox bid the most money and didn't get him. Move on. Strasburg is better and they have ZERO reason not to get into a high bid with him. Phillies are out on him...so its Nationals/Yankees/Angels as really the only true contenders and one drops out that signs Cole.
  12. Honestly for me best case scenario is that Phillies offered 6 years and Hahn immediately put in an aggressive 5 year offer for Stras. If you overpay, overpay for the guy who had the historic playoffs...

    Joc Pederson - Is it goin down?

    I really love an Eloy, Robert and Joc outfield for 2020...and depending on the market try and work out a 2 year extension with Joc this spring. See how well he hits and then if Adolfo or Basabe are ready by End of 2020 you can baby step them into the RF role and you have Joc play RF, DH and spell Eloy in LF in 21,22. Power for days in the lineup and having Joc, Abreu and Grandal as your carousel of DH guys for contention years is pretty choice.
  14. No way they would bother offering a short term to Cole. Boras wouldnt even answer the phone unless they came with at least a 225+ offer
  15. If it wasn't for a miracle rain delay that team would be the most underwhelming 5 year run of any contender in recent history. They had prospects, the GM and spent the money...and in short order they will be back to the lovable losers while the White Sox make all the headlines. I'm happy their die-hard fans got to see a championship, but talk about an ideal scenario for beaten down Southside fans. The cockiness and annoyance of Cubs fans hit such an obnoxious level that it's just desserts to see them fall apart just as quickly. Dynasty Broken.
  16. 4/74 will only happen if he has a bad medical report circulating. He is getting 95-105 easily and potentially more as you said. SFG make no sense though since they really are not trending upward at all.
  17. If I remember right hawk said that several games against the Mariners...
  18. Every time hawk said that I immediately said exactly that...except that one time I was really wasted. Let's not talk about that...
  19. It was tough to get Cole, stras and wheeler all into Chicago the day before Thanksgiving. Next week...
  20. All a mirage for the Strasburg signing Friday.

    Anyone with a brain and understanding of rosters would agree to their assessment. Cubs had their chance, won a series and choked on a dynasty. Sox are set for a 3-5 years of very competitive runs. Unfortunately so are the Yankees and Astros so Sox still need a #1 or #2 starter to put them over the top....and some lucky bounces in the postseason.

    Yeah. I agree. Would love to see them full strength though. Gonna be fun

    I think Madrigal and Robert both get offered spring training extensions like Eloy. Either bite?

    I'm good with this. Shows desire to get better. Next season he is a 40+ hr monster.
