  1. Because 3 years barely puts him in the window of contention.

    Alternate Plan for a $150 Million Payroll

    They couldn't. The team would be the Giants of 2018 or the Sox of 2015/2016. And it makes a lot of sense to acquire Machado/Harper without signing a bunch of 2nd/3rd tier FAs.
  3. Too bad. But tip of the cap to the Sox for trying to make that move.

    Am I only the only 1 uneasy about this off season?

    Bad in the sense that it put a financial strain on the org., then none really. Bad in the sense that the players didn't perform? 25-30.

    Heyman says White Sox interested in Nelson Cruz

    I just think that's silly stuff. It's like trading for 1 year of Machado so that he'll see how wonderful Ricky's clubhouse is and will sign for cheaper. Or they make silly move A to flip in move B. Just a bunch of contrivances. That stuff just never works out. And fortunately, it usually never gets off the ground.

    I agree...and if they do, that it sets back the rebuild and a tacit admission by the FO that the rebuild didn't work or at least they have no faith. I think .500 is about the best this FO is capable of; they are just over-matched in resources, skill, etc. IF JR is really going to spend for Machado and Harper (they'll need both) then that would compensate a good bit for other weaknesss.

    Don't see the point. Org is loaded with DH/1B types.
  8. Brantley's a good player when he plays. But not sure where the 62 win outfit is going with this.

    Mariners planning to tear it down

    That's the kind of trade I like: major league player for major league player. They don't happen as often as before.

    Hahn on The Score this morning

    if they Cubs can scheme a way to move Heyward and Darvish, they'll move in on Harper. Harper's my first choice for the Sox.

    Sox acquire LHP Manny Bañuelos for Justin Yurchak

    But he hit homers in rookie ball. That was his first year in A ball. Gavin Sheets himself checked in with a mighty 6 dingers in high A, in 437 at bats.

    Your Offseason Plan

    2 of the Sox better prospects play CF , which is refreshing. Prefer the 3B idea for Moncada, although I'm not sure who's supposed to play 2nd.

    Obviously Walker, a 2nd round draft choice from last year, has far more value. I used the comparison to dispute the idea that Yurchak has zero value. Did Banuelos really have more value than Kevin Smith?

    Sox acquire LHP Manny Bañuelos for Justin Yurchak

    .348 OBP in an OBP starved organization. .674 OPS. Raked in Rookie Ball. Out hit Steele Walker. How is Banuelos anything other than an org minor leaguer? His Ks are good, but the WHIP is not, and he's been in the minors for 9 years. He's stockpiling AAAA talent.
