  1. You’ll have that in a couple months and you can thank Hahn, Kenny, and JR for it in advance.

    You typed three paragraphs to crap on two 26 year old future Hall of Famers. C’mon, man.

    Why Preller >>> Hahn

    That means little after what he traded him for. Dumping a washed-up starter for the #2 prospect in all of baseball pretty much absolves him of the initially poor signing IMHO. He turned the corpse of James Shields into gold.

    Or maybe I’ll get to change it to AdamJones2Sox? That seems more accurate to Hahn’s free agent level.

    Why Preller >>> Hahn

    It’s pretty obvious that Preller has completely duped Hahn twice. I don’t see how someone couldn’t admit this. Preller robbed Hahn and the Sox of an established franchise player for money alone and another potential franchise player for the used up corpse of James Shields.
  6. Yep, both guys are too old. I don’t want either.
  7. Hahn and the Sox don’t know what a good player is. They like to waste all of their allotted money on dumpster diving efforts. Go view the thread on all of Hahn’s signings since he became GM.

    Hahn on 670 Tonight

    Agreed. If the opt-out isn’t until 5 years into the deal, I don’t understand the hesitation to offer one. An opt-out after only 2-3 years would be mostly beneficial to the player but 5 years is reasonable and could save the team a lot of money on the back-end of the deal but they would still receive 5 years of a premium talent.

    The entire point of this offseason was landing a top talent. Hahn has been talking about it for a year. Remember the Machado trade rumors last offseason? This was Hahn’s plan. Now, since the Sox whiffed on Machado and potentially Harper, you are changing the narrative to acquiring free agents with lesser talents. This was not Hahn’s plan.

    Sox won’t land Arenado for reasons I already mentioned. Besides, he’s a worse option because he will be older (29 in the beginning of next season) and there are questions of the Coors effect. So try again please. What other players make up the “many” (to quote you) that will be available that are better options than Machado and Harper? You just named one guy who isn’t a better or more realistic option. And I’m breathing just fine. This is just an honest question.

    Grading Rick Hahn

    What do you think the going rate is for top free agents? And if you think 10 years and $300 million is a ridiculous price, then you are basically assuming the Sox will never sign a top free agent and should continue to waste money on mid-level free agent talent and their favorite strategy — dumpster diving. Also, please name some projected free agents that will be available in the future that the Sox will have a reasonable shot at landing who are better options than two 26 year old guys who are on Hall of Fame tracks with very little competition for their services. It seems that the Padres were the only other true competition for Mahado’s services and it appears that the Phillies are currently the only real competition for Harper’s services. Arenado will be 29 years old at the beginning of next season and if the Rockies don’t extend him, the Yankees are already rumored to be all over him if he hits free agency. So good luck with that. Trout? Yeah, pipe dream. Every team with money available will be all over the best player in the league. Posters continue to throw out this narrative that other good free agents will be available in the future but no one can ever name a realistic option for the Sox who is better than Machado or Harper considering the circumstances of this offseason with very little team interest and the Sox being one season away from the expected start of their team being competitive.

    Worst off-season ever?!?

    I think Alonso would have gotten a major league deal but no where near $9 million. .740 OPS last year. He sure hit like a backup first baseman.
  13. Moan4Yoan

    Worst off-season ever?!?

    Colome sure. But Herrera is on a 2-year, $18 million dollar deal. That is a bit pricey and his velocity supposedly dipped last year. Colome and Herrera will earn $16 million combined this year that Hahn could have included in his Machado offer.

    Worst off-season ever?!?

    No one ever argued that point.
  15. Moan4Yoan

    Worst off-season ever?!?

    Please name a realistic target that will be better than two 26 year old future Hall of Famers with minimal competition for their services. I will wait patiently for your response. This was the best offseason to spend big on a free agent.
  16. Moan4Yoan

    Worst off-season ever?!?

    Yep, if nothing else happens, it will likely be one of the worst. How many times did Hahn say he wouldn’t be signing stop-gaps and only be adding players that can expedite the rebuild on a long-term basis? He signed all the stop-gap guys and missed out on his single long-term target. Oops. How can anyone trust a word Hahn says anymore? Ivan Nova - $9 million (1 year) Yonder Alonso - $9 million (hopefully only 1 year) Kelvin Herrera - $9 million (likely 2 years) Alex Colome - $7.325 million (likely 2 years) Jon Jay - $4 million (1 year) James McCann - $2.5 million (1 year) Manny Machado - WHIFF!

    Worst off-season ever?!?

    If it isn’t the worst, it’s definitely ranked up there. And here’s why... You don’t get Machado but are left with two good but pricey relievers and a bunch of mediocrity for $40+ million dollars. Ivan Nova - $9 million Yonder Alonso - $9 million Kelvin Herrera - $9 million Alex Colome - $7.325 million Jon Jay - $4 million James McCann - $2.5 million

    The White Sox granted an exclusive interview with the ultimate softball lobber for a reason.

    Like the clowns who are failing miserably are going to admit any negatives haha. So they lose their jobs?

    There’s a reason the White Sox granted Holmes specifically the interview.

    So what should upset fans do to voice their anger about the direction of their favorite baseball team in your opinion?

    Lawrence Holmes is awful and kisses the asses of all of his guests. He does not ask tough questions. Danny Parkins is the best and has no shame in challenging a guest with all the tough questions — see John Paxson podcast from a couple weeks ago.
