  1. True, but the Sox also paid Walmart prices instead of Macy's.

    Guess the pitcher we add in the offseason

    I can repost the old thread if you want. It was not from that long ago. I said that signing Madbum would be like signing the second coming of James Shields. That offended people. They were upset that the Dbacks got madbum on the cheap. Hahn should have offered 100 million to get the deal done.

    A lot of posters on this board wanted Madbum if we didn't land Wheeler. I'm glad Hahn didn't do that. That being said I agree with Bauer. Especially on a short term deal regardless of the price. But I'm not as sold on Stroman or Q.

    I wanted starting pitching more than anyone last offseason and that's because we needed it. Starting pitching wins in the postseason. End of story. But what good options are out there other than Bauer? I'm not sold on Stroman. Offer Bauer 40 for 1 year or 70 for 2?

    I thought Dunning was a pleasant surprise. For a rookie to not have a loss on the season, have more strikeouts than innings pitched, and an era under 4. What more can you ask of him?

    Do we absolutely need to sign a starter? Giolito, Keuchel, Dunning, Cease, and then Reylo, Crochet, Kopech?

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    Worst re-sign ever! What an overpay. Fire Hahn!
  8. Hard to say what value he would have being as he hasn't pitched this year. Also, can't see the Cubs parting ways with him if he's pitching well and they are in playoff contention. I wonder what it would take to get Woodruff from the Brewers if they fall out of contention before the deadline?

    The Ringer loves the White Sox: Two Articles

    Not to say Madrigal is going to be one of these guys but I wonder how Keith Law would have rated Derek Jeter or Pete Rose as prospects. I know Jeter had a little pop in hit bat but definitely wasn't a power guy. He never hit more than 24 home runs in a season and only surpassed 20 homers three times. Pete Rose never hit more than 16 home runs in one season and finished his career with more single digit home run seasons than double. Both individuals are fairly well respected for their careers as players. I understand the importance of hitting for power in baseball but still don't think that it's a required tool to be a good or even a great player in this league.

    FS: What's Driving Mercedes' Power?

    I've been fortunate enough to watch a few games with Mercedes playing on mlb network this year. He reminds me somewhat of Pablo Sandoval. I hope the White Sox find him some AB's at the big league level this year.

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    That's who I would want the Sox to take if the draft was today.

    Huge Blow for Indians: Clevinger Out

    IMO a left knee injury for Clevinger with his wind up could be a big deal. Maybe he only misses a few weeks. Maybe he isn't the same guy all year.

    Giolito snubbed from mlb.com's top 100 players list?

    Mlb might be changing playoff format

    The new format would coincide with some prime contention years for the White Sox making a long stretch of years in the playoffs that much more probable.

    Mlb Networks Top 10

    The Shredder's list is based heavily off of war from the previous two seasons and projections for the upcoming season. Grandal will obviously be a lock for a top spot. Abreu will most likely make the list due to limited competition at his position even though he was injured for a portion of 2018. He also has made the list the past 3 seasons. Moncado should make the list but might not make it due to his struggles in 2018. Tim Anderson is in a similar perdicament even though he won the batting title in 2019. Giolito will also be hurt by his 2018 performance and there's some stiff competition to make any top 10 starting pitcher list. Eloy just missed the list. Robert and Madrigal could be there in future seasons. I think Colome and McCann have a chance but will both fall outside the top 10.
