    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    The fact that Nolan can opt out after two years makes this a poor trade for the sox. Why give up young controllable players when he will end up going to a higher bidder in two years if he plays like you want him too. Besides as people said his numbers away from Coors are quite a bit lower. I hope the sox aren't interested. I would like to see the cardinal's jump on it. Hope the cubs have to see him alot this year.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    Personally I think this signing only helps the twins for a year or two. He has been injured most of his career. I also think the twins offense will take a step back. No way they lead the league in HR again. Should be a good fight till the end.
  3. Couldn't agree more. I'm looking forward to the season to start!
  4. I guess we just have different opinions on things. I feel wheeler and price are much more of a risk. Guess we will see.
  5. I guess that's where everyone has their own opinion on who is a better player. I would have liked to see hamels. I wouldn't touch price and that contract. In my opinion he is old and washed up and will cost prospects. Happ has higher ceiling but again what do you have to give up to get him? Keuchel wont be the ace. Like it was said earlier you are counting on kopech and giolito for that. I think Keutchel is a dependable left handed innings eater that will keep you in games.
  6. Everyone has a right to complain but not even close to massive overpay. People will complain sox dont spend money then when they do they complain they spent too much. I understand people being disappointed that wheeler is not a sox. But they had top offer. Besides I wouldn't be surprised if keuchel and wheeler have similar numbers. Wheeler has never stepped up and been even close to an ace. 100 million for him is the gross over pay. I am excited about the sox signings this offseason. Should make them competitive in the division. Unfortunately they never had a shot at Cole or Strasburg.

    White Sox sign Gio Gonzalez

    Considering how the offseason was going for the sox I would think most people should be pleased. Should give the sox a chance to compete on the central for the playoffs.
  8. Kenny Williams is that you? It's time to sign a damn starting pitcher already.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    I feel there is no one else. Need to make a push and sign these two. I know realistically sox will be lucky to get one.

    Hey damn well should be roasted. They have been saving money for years and now wont spend a dime where its needed! Need two pitchers. The rotation was weak at best last year.

    Ryu to Jays - 4 yr/80 mil

    Great point! He is an injury risk but still worth the risk. Sox need front line veteran starter.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Thanks smellysox! Looking forward to talking more sox!!

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    I hope so. Just gets frustrating watching the Sox's biggest needs get taken off the board one by one. I honestly feel with two decent pitchers added on the sox should take the division.

    Nobody is saying the sox suck. What we are saying is that star players obviously dont want to play with the sox. Ownership needs to do something to change that. Yes winning will help but until then they need to start overpaying.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Your right sox wont over pay its against their beliefs. I really wish Jerry and Hahn would realize that top free agents dont want to play for the sox. So they have to do something to force the issue. The young talent is promising but without a few decent free agents it's going to be awful hard going deep in the post season.
