    And does anyone think the Sox would be able to devlop a toolsy, but raw hit tool high schooler?

    The only solace I have is that there was no way the Sox were catching the Orioles last year no matter how bad they played toward end of the year.

    Would you draft Paul Konerko with the third pick? Serious question. Obviously offensively, Paulie had a big impact on the game, but because he played first base, his overall value was about a 3 WAR player per year.

    He’s not athletic apparently. Lateral movement would be an issue

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Maybe, just maybe, the Sox are seeing all the negative reaction and get back in the Harper derby. If you give Harper $320 million over 10 years with an opt-out to satisfy him, maybe at the back end of the contract, you have bad money and maybe even during his prime years (due to defense and a bad hitting season), he isn't worth $32 million per year. But one bad contract won't kill a team from being competitive. And adding him to the Sox makes it more likely that the Sox are competitive, helps with marketing and attendance. The reward of Harper substantially outweighs the risk of him. He clearly is waiting for his number to be matched. The Sox simply have no reason not to do it (except probably a mandate from the owner).

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I will be going to one, White Sox v. Red Sox for my dad's b-day, only because he wanted to see the World Champs. Other than that, won't be supporting this organization fiscally.

    Bowden Top 200 (Sub required)

    I tend to agree. Every report has lauded him as a CF, meaning his value will be pretty strong even if he does not hit that well.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    On the bright side, our summers will be so much more open to devote to non-sports things. Think of how many hobbies you could have, books you could read, etc.

    Nice of the Sox to leak to Rosenthal so we can feel better about their strong offer.

    Figure out who to pay when you have a winning roster with players worth paying. As of right now, we have ZERO cornerstone major league players.

    Infuriating me even more.

    Can't wait to see how Rick Hahn spins this.

    And what is the one constant between all of them??

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Sox had the best chance in the history of this franchise to add an elite, HOF-type talent in the prime of his career when not many teams in the race and their hands were not tied financially. And they blew it. F this loser organization to the core.

    A lot of people were bummed we didn't get Benedenti in 2015 by one pick, Misner seems to have a quite similar skill set.
