    Soxtalk Member Age Range

    48 now. 31 when I joined. I truly thought this board was full of young crybabies, but it's old crybabies. Strange indeed.

    White Sox add 2 intl signings

    If he's left handed let's pencil him in at right!

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    I would love this move if it came on the heels of a few "bigger" ones. In itself it's disappointing. Can anyone not see that?

    Expanded Playoff Proposal - 7 Teams from each League

    I haven't watched a baseball game the Sox weren't playing in since the World Series of the Braves vs the Yankees back in the 90's. I don't love the game anymore, just the team.

    This team never fails to disappoint.

    Hmm. Nope, I'm not ready to believe yet.

    Sox to talk about Semien with Boras

    Semien is a fine ball player, but I'm not sure why the Sox would make him a priority? He's expensive, old, and bats righty. In a perfect world, I'd love him on the team, but not in our reality. Get someone left handed, plays good defense, and hopefully has a solid OBP. The cheaper the better.

    Where could Kimbrel be traded, and for what?

    Reynolds still has three years of control? Tempting , but I'll hate seeing Vaughn tear up pitching for the next 15 years wearing another uniform. Just sign Conforto and keep Andrew. He's our new Paulie. Even the Big Hurt eventually gave way, Jose isn't forever.

    Conforto rejects QO, enters free agency

    100 million dollars better?

    Abreu next year and in the future

    Make him a coach in 2023.
  13. That would be great! I wouldn't have traded Nick for Kimbrel, but I'd drive him to the bus stop for Gallo.
  14. I'd keep every position player for 22. Kimbrel can go. -Sign a real FA RF -Burger goes down and have him work on multiple positions (3rd, 2nd, OF) of- Robert, Eloy, FA, Engel if- Yoan, Tim, Cesar, Jose, Mendick/Garcia/cheap vet C- Yaz, Collins (or cheap vet) DH- Sheets Jack of all trades- Vaughn There's plenty of at bats for Vaughn between 1st, LF, Rf, and DH. Keep rotating everyone to keep fresh. Move Jose into a coaching role in 2023 and Vaughn takes over as full time 1st. Maybe Burger can play 2nd after a year working on it?
