    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Just for arguments sake - I think there's a big difference between letting in 4 playoff teams vs. 14-16 teams. Using the playoffs to seek the difference in the 4 top teams may have some merit (?). Having a random 14th seed barely above .500 sneak into the playoffs and gain some luck is a travesty to the regular season.

    yes, 100%. I'm 100% pro players and I feel owners are manipulating shit here, BUT the players union could definitely do more to be more open as well. Anyone else REALLY worried that playoffs are going to expand big time? I am literally depressed just thinking about it. It would, IMO, be the worst possible change. Baseball would fundamentally change for me.

    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    As much as I hate signing a RHB like Trevor Story who has been more of a SS than 2b, can't we just do that? Story is an insane talent and while we'd need to get some left handed hitters in our lineup at some point -- he is free of prospect cost and would instantly make us a more dynamic team.

    Where would you rank the White Sox Organization? Basically middle of both economic and intellect? I'd kinda say middle of economic and low on intellect.

    Yo! Thanks for this. I think it's a good idea.

    Carlos Rodon and a 6-man Sox rotation?

    I bet he goes to the rangers

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    This is such an interesting, dynamic topic. In theory, there's solutions that should benefit both and create a great baseball atmosphere. In reality, it's a fight of capitalistic greed and the amount of propaganda that comes out from both sides clouds everything and creates the social environment that we see on the topic. On top of this, there's SO many issues at play here and each issue seems like both sides are not budging. Just to name a few of the issues off the top of my tiny brain... - Expanded Playoffs - NL DH -Free agency -Service time Manipulation -League min. Contracts -Salaray caps/floors -MLB Rules (changing baseballs, runner on 2nd, etc.) crazy

    We should just do Story.. Fuck, Baez would have been a good option too at what he got. Story isn't our ideal fit, but he is a legit talent especially compared to everything else.

    2022 Offseason Plan Thread

    Plz grab conforto and story and ill consider offseason a massive win
  10. Yes, its truly a pathetic standard from our organization
  11. Hmm let's see... if Javier Baez goes 6/140, can we get Trevor Story for 6/140? how about 7/160?
  12. Money talks, of course he would

    MLB 2021-2 off season thread

    I'm so sick of being let down every single offseason by whacky moves and general unwillingness to offer any sort of big contracts to players. For me, Trevor Story is likely the biggest value of the season. At only age 29 (relative to Semien age 31, Starlin Marte age 33) he offers a bit of free agent youth and he's coming off a down year and also has the negativity around him with Colorado. However, this guy has posted elite seasons. The only downside for us is that he is a right handed batter and we don't really need that. Corey Seager (age 28) would be the best possible free agent get we could ask for, however I'm not sure if he'd play 2b for us and he's also more likely to get an insane contract I think. Even Javier Baez (age 29) would be an awesome get for us with his electric attitude and defensive abilities at 2b or SS. Again, being right handed isn't ideal for our team set up, but he'd definitely solve 2b for us. Right now, I'm really hoping the White Sox surprise us and get involved on one of these three. Im sick of them not spending and I'm sick of our hole at 2b. Pairing one of them with an OF like Castellanos or more likely Conforto would make the offseason grade a solid A or A+. Adding those additions with a decent/good SP and maybe Tepera? A+. What do I fully expect? I expect them to sign tepera, find some off-the-wall 2b journeyman contract, and sign a pretty awful OF to fill the holes. My expectations are pretty much a "D" or "F" offseason grade. It sucks, probably the worst thing about being a White Sox Fan.
