  1. Right, a formal offer is one that Harper can sign the second it comes over, meaning those aren't made, especially for a 300-400mm 10 or so year deal, until you're 100% ready for it to be signed.

    Yeah, I knew it wasn't a joke as he didn't do Jambaroo last Thursday, or anything since Wednesday and he didn't tweet all weekend, which is rare for him. He normally says when he's taking a trip or on assignment. I actually googled him yesterday to see if there was news or he signed with another company. Yes, as you note, with twitter comments of his colleagues this actually seems really serious. Hoping he's OK!

    https://deadspin.com/a-note-on-drew-1830961589 Something is wrong with Drew Magary. Hope it's nothing serious, but no real info. I really like his writing and met him at a live deadcast a few months ago. He couldn't have been nicer and talked to my sister, bro-in-law and me for like 15 minutes just shooting the shit.
  4. With the amount of money they can get for franchise fees, my best guess is if there's new locations they will be expansion, not anyone moving.

    Moncada/Willy Garcia leave game after collision

    QUOTE (SoxAce @ Jul 31, 2017 -> 10:41 PM) No s***. I said I was more nervous about a fracture at the time in the GT. Sorry man, late night reading comprehension issues. Glad you were chill about it

    Moncada/Willy Garcia leave game after collision

    QUOTE (SoxAce @ Jul 31, 2017 -> 10:31 PM) Schwarber's knee twisted though in his collision with Fowler. I remember as I watched that game. Moncada's knee didn't look nearly as serious. But you never know. I'd be shocked though if something was torn. I was more nervous about a fracture. X rays are already negative. They said during the game

    Q traded to Cubs/Jimenez, Cease ++ to Sox

    QUOTE (steveno89 @ Jul 13, 2017 -> 12:01 PM) Sox were the only team out there actively selling off premium pieces when many teams should have been more proactive. Hahn waited, and ended up getting a major return. Sale/Eaton/Quintana netted the Sox: Moncada Kopech Basabe Diaz Giolito Lopez Dunning Jimenez Cease Rose Flete Combine that with signing Luis Robert, and drafting Burger/Sheets WOW Add to that list, not that it's direct from any player, a likely top 5 draft pick next year.

    QUOTE (CaliSoxFanViaSWside @ Jul 13, 2017 -> 11:23 AM) Actually it does since he was recently ranked #45. ah, didn't see that, thanks for the update.

    QUOTE (Harry Chappas @ Jul 13, 2017 -> 11:07 AM) and that doesn't include Hansen who is my favorite guy Fullmer's failures seem irrelevant now It also doesn't include L. Robert
  10. When I was a kid it seemed Melido Perez started almost every game I went to, and those often didn't go well, but it did seem I always saw Pasqua hit a homer.

    ST games in Milwaukee

    I usually go to Brewer's opening day (something like 10 of the last 12 years) with a group of friends from WI, but my father passed away in November and he use to take my sister and I out of school for Sox opening day, so had to go to the Sox opener this year! I was very happy when I saw they were playing in Milwaukee as I'm going to Saturday's game with some friends. Staying at the casino and got a real decent rate for a Saturday night.

    Rodon Getting MRI

    QUOTE (chitownsportsfan @ Mar 27, 2017 -> 11:58 AM) Any updates here? http://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/carlos-...opinion-monday/ MRI showed no structural damage, getting a second opinion n L.A. today, so maybe some clarity today.

    Teams have upped their offers in Q derby in the last week

    QUOTE (steveno89 @ Feb 27, 2017 -> 09:55 AM) I highly doubt that Quintana gets traded until closer to the deadline, unless a team overwhelms us with an offer with the teams who have the value to get Q, this is obviously a narrow possibility, but if a contender has an injury in ST to a top of the rotation arm.
  14. QUOTE (Brian @ Jan 26, 2017 -> 04:35 PM) Plagiarism? In My thread?? Not saying he did or didn't, just struck me odd it's the same matches in the same order as the Observer.
