  1. Collins is who you trade for a good reliever in July.

    Giolito says there hasn't been talks on an extension

    Well if they can do that, then they can extend Lynn/Giolito. It's not like those 3 had below-market contracts. Seems like JR is reverting to his 80s/90s philosophy of no extensions for young pitchers.

    Jonathan Lucroy signs minor league deal with White Sox

    I have little doubt about that.

    Keith Law's Top 100, 2 White Sox make the list

    Law has the Sox #22, last in the AL Central. 3 ALC teams in the top 10. Really disappointing since all of the high draft picks are included in that #22 or have been flameouts.

    Foodies: Sox/Giolito discussing an extension?????

    Both the early 80s and early/mid 90s editions had a lot of young quality starting pitchers, and JR wouldn't/didn't extend any of those guys. He's relented the last 15 years with Sale, Q, MB and Danks so hopefully they can get Giolito done. So far, to me, he's the best player in this rebuild; he's the 2nd (or perhaps 3rd) best young starter of this century and top 5 young starter in JR's 40+ years of ownership.

    Jonathan Lucroy signs minor league deal with White Sox

    Well, they don't have a DH (last year, they did - McCann - although they didn't use him as such with regularity) and have questions in RF and perhaps 2B. Questions at SP #4 and #5 (lots of hitting may be required in those starts). During the rebuild, the Sox auditioned a dozen or more young players who hadn't done much, and McCann was the rare find who blossomed once here. Maybe that's the comparison with Lucroy...among the seeming dozens of declining veterans that the Sox have signed over the years, maybe he'll be the rare one that reverses, instead of accelerates, the decline.

    Getz is promoted to Ast GM

    Aside from my general weariness of insiders, has he ever scouted or evaluated talent? My understanding is that he's a contracts guy, like Hahn.

    Even if Lucroy can catch decently (which is not a certainty), the Sox really can't afford his dead bat in the lineup.

    Better Getz than Haber (if the Sox must stay inside).

    Arenado traded to Cardinals

    Annoying that the Cards get Arenado for this price, the Mets get Lindor and 3 years of Carrasco for, from what I can tell, not much more than what the Sox gave up for 1 year of Lance Lynn.
  11. Given that they weren't going to spend a pile, I think they did pretty well. The top 3 starters are really good, the bullpen is great and pretty deep- should se up well for post season (if they can get there). Rodon signing surprised me; not that I'm against it, just surprised, as I had inferred from what I read and heard that they weren't 100% on his work ethic.

    Jerry Reinsdorf is cheap

    That would help a lot; and they could have a great pen as currently constructed, although I'm a little concerned with the back end (meaning the 5th and 6th inning guys) should the Sox 4th and 5th starters really struggle. Hopefully another young guy or 2 pops up in the Spring. Not a huge issue, but I'd like to see Eaton recover some of his RF defensive prowess.

    Jerry Reinsdorf is cheap

    The team should be good; I'd be surprised if they're great, but we'll see. A lot of assets to rebuild with + A reluctant owner + a mediocre GM = a good team.

    Jameson Taillon traded to Yankees

    That's because we had Sale, Eaton and Quintana to trade, the latter 2 of whom we (fortunately) traded at the peak of their value. I think it's amazing how thin the Sox are considering all of the trade capital; heck they had to trade a pitcher in the rotation to get a 1 year upgrade and they apparently can't come up with the 2nd tier prospects to get one of these mid-rotation starters.

    the Corbin Burnes thread **on ice***

    This nudges toward the Sale price range. He shouldn't be anywhere near that price.
