    Kris Bryant loses grievance

    In Sox news, does this increase the chances that Madrigal is up on April 8th or something like that? If Bryant couldn't win his case, I can't see how anyone could.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    This move helps the Twins, no doubt. They should enter the 2020 season as AL Central favorites. But, I've watched too many teams in my lifetime with great offenses but questionable starting pitching to know that is not a formula for success. Just like with the Sox, the Twins ultimate success will hinge on their no. 3-5 starters.

    White Sox sign Gio Gonzalez

    To be fair, he presumably liked Jordan Lyles better.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    That random reddit user who nailed everything said that Ryu was the Angels primary pitching target. My guess is that he ends up there. If the Sox step up to the plate and offer Keuchel a 4 year deal, I think the Sox will get him. If not, he'll end up signing a 3 year deal with one of the Braves, Dodgers, Astros, Blue Jays, etc.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    This is actually good to hear, as we really haven't heard much of anything recently connecting the Sox to either pitcher. Bruce's sources are certainly White Sox connected and not Boras connected, making it unlikely that this info is just an agent leverage play.
  6. I actually think 4/70 or so would be enough to get Keuchel signed. With so many tier 3 starters getting signed over the last week or so, I don't get the impression that there are really a lot of suitors for Keuchel at this point at his supposed asking price. The Twins and Sox are the two that make the most sense. I could see the Braves, Dodgers, Astros, and other teams maybe jumping in with 3 year offers, but I don't think any of them are going 4 years.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Hahn and company are entirely to blame for the position they put themselves in. What do you think Bloom is thinking right now? He's thinking the Sox can't/won't deal with Boras, so any threat they might be making to sign Keuchel or Ryu is bunk. And they desperately are ready to compete after a painful rebuild. So, yeah, Bloom is negotiating from a position of strength and confidence, and the Sox ineptitude is the reason for that.

    Others are on the periphery though. The Dodgers, Braves, or Astros could swoop in and sign one of those guys if the opportunity presents itself, even though they're not nearly as desperate for pitching as the three teams you mention.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    If Benintendi is included, Vaughn is probably going to the Red Sox. That just seems like the reality of the situation, even if it seems like an overpay. I like Vaughn a lot and hate that the Sox could end up trading a good prospect when they just could have signed a free agent, but between Abreu, Grandal, and Collins, the Sox have a group of guys under team control for 3+ years who can give solid production at 1B. The rebuild can be successful even without Vaughn.

    So Blue Jays and Cardinals have signed starters today. Either could possibly still be in on Ryu or Keuchel, but less likely.

    He got Cole to the Yankees, when most were still predicting the Angels.

    If Kopech struggles with his command in spring training, then yes, he should go to AAA. If he looks sharp, though, he should be in the rotation. Many seem to be advocating for AAA no matter how he looks.

    We're not talking about regaining anything over night. He's probably working on it now, and has all of spring training. You're concerned about him not facing MLB lineups in spring training, but going to AAA is going to solve that. Huh? Then you mention the extra year of control, which is really what people want and is why they want him back in AAA. According to Hahn, today, there is nothing physically wrong with Kopech.
