    McCann Extension

    If his defense, framing and working with pitchers are sound, then I'd extend him. Those things should last. Hitting would be lagniappe. If Collins breaks out, then they still have a really good backup, which they will need.

    How about Dallas Keuchel in a White Sox uniform?

    It's been dry lately but there were a bunch in 2010 and 2009. The overall hit rate in the draft is not good, but there are hits and you have to give yourself enough arrows. A lot of great players came after the first round.

    I'd say it's 10%. He's signing a 4 month deal. 4 months is of marginal real help.

    Signing Keuchel and giving up a pick would be yet another comedy act. If they want him, wait a couple of weeks, and then outbid everyone else.

    Time for some changes, Rick

    Right - 2 relievers (one with multi-years of control; the 2nd with the same control as Robertson) plus a 3B yielded that. Colome won't come close - one problem is that he doesn't have dominating stuff.

    5/20 Games

    He has never been particularly good in the minors, so it's not that much of a surprise that he's now bad. He's probably a LOOGY at best which is close to 0 value; heck the Sox had 3 of them last season they picked up basically for free.

    And whether spending $200 million would turn the Sox into a winner is another story. Actually it's a fable. What's the core right now - 4 players? it would be another 2015-16 dog and pony show that's pushing for .500. That said, the Sox could have helped themselves by spending their $9 million here, $8 million there more wisely...instead, Hahn took the lazy way out.
  8. That Laroche's child was let into the clubhouse on a regular basis shows the strong leadership of Whitesox brass. Everyone knew Eaton was an ass. That's why he was on the first ship out along with Sale and his scissors.

    Happ is having a lousy year at AAA. I'm thinking Fulmer for Happ. They were picked right next to each other too. Colome isn't a dominant pitcher; they should get something good for him, but not a ton and not what they gave up for him. But I'm not sure they should trade him anyway - Hahn doesn't take advantage of seller's leverage in July and he will just look for another closer in December

    Rainy Day Poll: Evaluate the Big 3 Trades

    The sale return was light in secondary pieces. But overall yes those were good trades. But the rest of them have been generally awful and made on the other teams' terms, as have his moves for veterans. And his drafts haven't yielded much yet. You need all of the above to build a winner.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    yes, except that if he is so pitiful with the fill-ins now, what's to believe he will become competent with them when they matter? His negligence is dangerous - you never know for sure when young teams are going to come together. The Twins aren't being pulled down by their fill-ins. Further, Hahn traded for 3 of these fill-ins. How can you not to due diligence when trading for players?

    Rainy Day Poll: Evaluate the Big 3 Trades

    I didn't vote that way, but, arguably, Gio currently is the best player and Gio/Reylo is currently the best 2 player package. It's certainly not indefensible. And relative to what the Sox gave up to get them, it's very defensible.

    Hahn On Tatis Jr. Trade

    The bad motives behind the trade are part of it. The ridiculously inept and lazy scouting are another part of it.
  14. KW was always a starting pitcher short from 2001-2004. The drafts starting declining then too, which would portend future problems. In 2007, he gave Ozzie a "Jerry Krause" year and brought in the hackers and slappers that Ozzie wanted. Of course it was a disaster. KW quickly mitigated those mistakes and put a playoff team on the field the next year (led by the brilliant trade for The Carlos Quentin). Even in his last year, he fielded a contender that ended up with more pythagorean wins than he division winner. He's made a lot of mistakes, but the biggest is the continued employment of Rick Hahn and Don Cooper. I accept that KW has a lifetime contract with JR. But why do Hahn and Cooper have lifetime contracts with KW?

    Sox @ Jays 5/12 12:07CT Happy Mothers Day!

    Well Tatis was discovered by this org.....too bad they didn't have a clue as to who they had discovered.
