    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    We can infer what we want from the trade but we have no idea what Hahn will do or be able to pull off. Should we also infer that the Sox are out of the Harper sweepstakes because Alonso was acquired and it is a signal that they are pursuing Machado? Who knows, time will tell.

    The sky is falling if Machado and Harper don’t sign here and the Alonso to recruit Machado takes are getting old.

    Then people need to go b**** to Hahn and the FO or stop buying tickets and merchandise like they have been.

    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    Then as a fan base let’s continue b****ing and see what that brings. There are too many unknown variables that people don’t have any inside information on. A team has needs each offseason, why can’t people identify the remaining holes instead of just have the meltdown that they do? It’s not productive and while I don’t agree with everything rabbit said on Twitter, fans need to set themselves up for the possibility that neither sign here. I will be thrilled if one sign here, but there probably is a plan B if they don’t sign here. Having prospects coming soon and players like Harper and Machado would be a healthier and better direction, but there is still talent that could be brought in in the future if they miss on either or both players. It’s just not worth freaking out about Colome, Nova, McCann and Alsonso yet.

    There is no harm in this move. There is wayyy too much b****ing about this move. “If they don’t get Machado then this was a waste” is getting old. They need to fill out the roster while they wait for Machado or Harper to respond to an offer. There are still holes elsewhere and I fully expect them to be filled before Harper or Machado to make up their minds. I fully expect there to be a plan B and that this board will have the same meltdown that I did when Trump won the presidency if neither sign.

    White Sox Sign C James McCann

    There is wayyyy too much b****ing on this board over Alonso and McCann being acquired. $2.5 million is cheap and Alonso cost almost nothing. They are all in on Harper and Machado and if they don’t get them, there is probably a plan B. People really need to let things play out and see what happens. Seriously.
  7. Yes because of resources being limited for each team we are competing with. Meaning, there’s only so much teams can spend and still compete. We should end up with one of them.
  8. Can I ask why you can’t share it publicly? Why can’t your source allow you to share it here?
  9. Same here. I need some ammo for when my wife and I have kids do they don’t listen to their grandmother or mother and instead listen to their paternal grandparents and father about what fan to be, another misguided child or a White Sox fan.

    AJ put that piece of shit on his ass though. Best brawl between the two teams ever.

    Are the Cubs, Yankees and Dodgers already near or above the luxury tax? If not, how much of a penalty would they look to be paying if they signed Harper for $40+ million a year?

    Bryce Harper Updates

    I don’t buy it Kopech. You’re definitely going to talk to Harper and pitch the Sox to him. Also, has there been anything concrete about Harper going to the Cubs? What has Plesac to stand on? I doubt they can sign him unless they trade Heyward.

    Don’t waste your time. Just wait for more rumors instead of useless discussion.

    Exactly. Only on Soxtalk do people debate Q Scores and the popularity of a baseball player. I appreciated your posts yesterday but just scroll when I see stupid shit being argued (see the last few pages as an example).
