    Now that Sox have totally wet the bed

    Isn’t he also a Scott Boras client?

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    No big surprise. Doubling down on not going for a needed RF at the trade deadline, and spending all those resources on a closer that we did not need. Our FO has its priorities wrong.

    MLB 2021-2 off season thread

    Tigers are being very aggressive. Could be tough competition for the Sox in the Central, particularly if we don’t improve.

    Looks like we are reeling a sardine not a big tuna.

    Are the Sox in the mix for anyone? Looks like we are staying pat.

    Avisail Garcia opts out

    Duvall also has won the Gold Glove. Miami practically gave him away. Where was Hahn while the Braves were making all these OF acquisitions on the cheap?

    Sox to talk about Semien with Boras

    I beg to differ that Vaughn had an impressive 2021. His performance with RISP was certainly not impressive.

    Good thing about Duvall besides his 38 homers last season, is that he has the highest fly ball hitting rate in MLB , over 53%. Sox needs that in our homer friendly park, and to balance our high ground / double play hitting guys.

    At least we will not have Goodwin patrolling RF next season.

    Hernandez option to be declined

    Hahn should be in the running for worst GM of the season.

    Doubling down on the original mistake of trading for him in the first place, when we already had a closer and needed a RF instead.

    All the Cubans....again?

    Should we change the name of the team to the Chicago Cuban Sox? If we add Soler to Abreu, Moncada, Grandal and Robert, we would have a majority of 5 Cubans in our starting line up.⚾️🇨🇺🇺🇸

    I was only arguing for only one of the three (Duvall, Rosario or Soler) for RF mid season acquisition to add more pop and stabilize our RF merry go round.

    Also Soler is certainly better defensively than Goodwin. And a 40 homer candidate at our hitter friendly park.

    The scrap heap Braves outfielders led the Braves to a World Series win. Duvall had the highest fly ball hitting rate in the majors plus 38 homers, a great need for the Sox. He was traded by the Marlins for a journeyman catcher. Soler had 48 homers two seasons ago. Rosario can play RF and is a lefty. The Braves scrap heap outfielders defense can’t be much worse than Goodwin, Sheets or Vaughn’s defense. The cost of these outfielders were lower than Bryant or Marte.
