    Need McCann and Grandal next year.

    Nice job asshole, calling a new member a complete moran. personal blog??? We all have opinions. I start a conversation, correct?? You have the option to give an opinion or ignore it. Not name call. I've been active for about week, started 3 conversions and YOU are the only one to insult me.

    Need McCann and Grandal next year.

    I rest my case for the need to keep McCann. He's Giolito's guy. Giolitti's wins at least 20 next year with this lineup and bullpen. Yasmani as a DH and McCann catches and we are set 1 through 9. Imagine if Kopech is real and we make a deal or sign someone and get a real Manager!!!! These are the 1984 Bears. With a little luck they be the 1985 Bears but probably next year. That was what the experts predicted anyway. Can we get to the final 4?? Probably. Keuchel Tomorrow and it seems like there no jitters. We did this without Jimenez. I pity the team that starts a lefty against the Sox for the next 2 or 3 years. I Told everyone that we could live with Engel Right and no Encarnacion's abysmal batting average. Yasmani as DH and McCann catching and we'll win this series!!!! With the money coming off the books next year we can afford to pay McCann and keep him happy.

    yes he wants to be a starter, But he'd still be a full time player with 60 to 70 games behind the plate and 60 to 70 games at DH. he'll be in 140 to 150 games. his career and Yasmani's will be extended greatly not having the wear and tear to catch 140 to 150 games. maybe 3 years 25 gets it done with incentives to make another 2 or 3 million a year. He may also have an Abreu attitude and want to be here the next couple of years when this thing peaks. Just hoping, been waiting for another 2005 and hopefully it wouldn't be a 1 and done.

    White Sox/A's-- Pre-series Discussion

    We have a shot, I'd say because of are 2 studs. Gio and Dallas could win both. if we split, we might be done. Dunning, Cease, and Lopez i don't think could win game 3. I hope to God i'm wrong if we lose game 1 or 2. The other question is can these kids handle the pressure?? THE BIGGEST ADVANTAGE WE HAVE FOR THE KIDS IS NOBODY IN THE STANDS. anything can happen in a best of 3 and we have the starters and the offense to do it if our kids can handle the pressure.

    both games are 2pm central on ESPN.
  8. We need to pay McCann and keep him on the team at all costs. He signed a 1 year deal for about 5.4 million and Hahn was stupid not put in a second year option with a buyout, are we really surprised he'd make a mistake like that???? He's Giolito's personal catcher. Yasmani will be the old Yasmani next year. We'll save some money when Encarnacion's 13 million off the books. Colome' will probably be gone, that's 10 million , Gio Gonzalez 5 million is gone. That's is 28 million. 2 years 15 million would be fair with a 3rd year option and buyout. he and Yasmani can switch off as DH's and when they both play Yasmani can play 1st and Abreu can DH for some rest. We have all the young stars signed to team friendly contracts. they bullpen is young and cheap with tremendous potential. We still need another stud starter and the money is there, Hahn has to step up and make this happen, we also have Vaughn waiting in the wings.
  9. Don't get me wrong or storm the gates, i'm not saying he should not hit # 9. He's too good a contact hitter. but think of the possibilities of hitting with Anderson at # 2 protecting him and Anderson getting Abreu protection!!! Just bored watching this beat down.

    Wasted Money This Year

    Also, looking opinions for my next topic that will coming up. Madrigal, should he stay #9, move up to #2 or even lead off with Anderson at # 2. Think about it, Madrigal get's Anderson protection, Anderson get's Abreu Protection.

    Wasted Money This Year

    Anybody know what top line pitchers may a free agent that would be worth Keuchel type money, thats what we need!!!!

    Wasted Money This Year

    i could live with Engel if we get a stud pitcher and a real manager!!!!
  13. AJ'S Cousin

    Wasted Money This Year

    touche', but he's gone!!! and yes he also was a HUGE waste. Add it up. 13m for Encarnacion, 6m for Cishek, 5m for Gio G. 4 or 5 m for Mazara. close to 30 million. We could signed a quality pitcher. We don't need to acquire any offense for next year. Even our bench is above average.
  14. AJ'S Cousin

    Wasted Money This Year

    I would like a refund on Encarnacion, Gio Gonzales and Mazara. a waste of about 17m that could have been spent on a pitcher the like of Mehta or someone of that stature. And whatever we're paying Renteria is also TOO MUCH. We need to invest in a REAL MANAGER, another quality starter to go with Giolitto and Keuchel. Lopez obviously is not the answer, who knows if Rodon will ever return to his old form. Cease and Dunning?? Not sure if they have what it takes and if by some miracle, Kopech can play MAYBE that's the answer at the 3 or 4 slot. We don't know the plans for Crochet yet. I don't know who's on the market during the winter. If anyone knows please post it. Saving grace is the Parrot Head is here this year and gone. Don't know about Gio G's contract, but gut him loose. Cease and Dunning needed a this year in the minors, but it is what it is. They may develop next year. With this offensive, 1 more stud starter and we will win the Central easily next year. It might by Kopech, it might not be. Maybe Cease/Dunning combine as a 5th starter throwing 4 innings each. LOL, only kidding!!!! We need as i've said in another post, RESIGN MCCANN!!!!! he and Yasmani can trade off catching and DH.
  15. AJ'S Cousin

    Crochet

    I also am done with the Crotchet responses, we all know he has Chris Sale POTENTIAL. Starter or reliever next year?? Let the powers that be make that decision. We can possibly build a great bullpen for 2021 whether he's a Starter or Reliever/Closer. Huer, Foster, Bummer, Marshall, Fry!!! And that's if Crotchet is a starter, not to mention Colome if they decide to resign him( which i doubt). Who's to say that they don't add Cease or Dunning to the bullpen for next year?? You never know what they may do. Is Kopech going to the bullpen early next year to start season because he took the year off and still recovering from TJ Surgery? Will still only have 2 legit Starters for 2021, Giolito and Keuchel, Lopez and Kopech don't count yet and i believe Rodon may be done or ALSO going to the bullpen!! LOL. That's all i have to say right now until a new topic comes up.
