    Bummer/ Gonzales/Rodon

    Correct me if I am wrong, but Bummer and Rodon we’re out on the Injured list, they were not optioned to the training site. So dates shouldn’t matter but the timing of when their IL time is up.

    Trevor Bauer Breaks down Giolito's No-No

    Has anyone noticed how Bauer pointed out that James puts the glove where the pitch needs to start for Giolito (vs where it needs to end). Is that consistently true? If so, does Grandal do it the same way? Maybe that is part of the difference between them catching him. Maybe warrants keeping James around.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    A package of Madrigal and Dunning or Madrigal and Lopez actually makes sense for the Rockies. They clear a ton of payroll and are removing someone with no surplus value. The Sox then have one of the best 3b and 2b (Moncada) in the game and have a superstar without having to win a bidding war. Not saying it will happen, but in theory it makes sense.

    Sox In on Lindor? Crackpot Rumor?

    Again, a Lindor trade and extension makes sense to the Sox MO. Don't get into a bidding war with others by making an early extension. Hahn has said that they really only want to pay people a contract like Machado if that player is in their prime. Lindor's age would fit what the Sox would throw money at, IF THEY WOULD ever actually throw money at a big contract.

    Sox In on Lindor? Crackpot Rumor?

    To be fair, a less likely scenario than trading for Lindor---has already happened when we traded Q to the Cubs. Not saying that this will happen, I am just saying stranger things have happened in the not so distant past.

    White Sox sign Gio Gonzalez

    Now this would be funny...once...twice...third time he will actually pitch for us?

    Why has Hahn failed?

    I think he thought Jerry would actually spend money. Rather, Jerry meant he would only spend more than he has ever spent (Grandal). Honestly, it is embarrassing that we have zero $100 million contracts. I mean, KC has had one and we have not. The top 3 Angels: Trout, Pujols and Rendon will make more than the entire White Sox roster next year. This will not win you baseball games, not consistently, not multiple championships.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Kenny: “We FINALLY got NOMAR! We’ve got Thome and Alomar and Alomar and Manny. Griffey and Lofton. And do you recall the greatest 90s and 00s Star of them all! Nomar the...” Rick: “Kenny, it is Nomar Ma...” Kenny: “Don’t interrupt my song! You know I live for this!”

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    I know people think the Sox need to pay a tax to get good players, but this prediction on Castellanos is a little ridiculous.

    Sox in on MadBum

    Also, today’s tweet is funny if they have shifted to Bumgarner.

    Sox in on MadBum

    A good question on Bumgarner is what will the ball be like in 2020? Obviously the juiced ball hurt him.
  12. But it doesn't matter if we would rather have 8 years of Cole or Starsburg than Wheeler for 6. The facts are facts, as Steve Stone has already relayed the company line, they will not be in on Cole and Strasburg. I agree---probably wiser to go for the big two if Wheeler is escalating that much, but that is not a real world option as the Sox won't do it, not that they cannot do, they just won't.
  13. Here is the deal, it is Wheeler or nothing. What we are forgetting is that payroll has been historically low the past few years, all so that "later we can have seats at the table". This means that they should be able to have MORE than a league average payroll. So, why are people edgy? Because the White Sox should at the very least be players in the Strasburg market---be we all know---in our heart of hearts that they won't be---even though they SHOULD be.
  14. The fact that there is a $100 million offer but doesn’t name the team, screams the White Sox as they don’t like to leak anything. The question will be will Sox step up and outbid the rest in the end, or be content with the “we tried” narrative.
  15. I think the Yolmer thing may have just been courtesy to Yolmer, let him talk to other teams earlier. That seams like a Sox move.
