    Zack Wheeler Thread

    Trying to look at rumors from random people (and even from some of the experts) on Twitter is what will destroy you. Last year proved how unbelievably hopeless that was. I strongly suggest avoiding posting that type of BS.

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    The Dodgers have a lot of good options at C. The Brewers attempted to grab Grandal if you believe those rumors, but they are also in a bit of hurt right now with the way their division is setting up and pitching staff. I wouldn't read into that as much.

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    1) Already a better offseason than last year. 2) Huge for the pitch-framing and really nice for the offense. This is cool! I'm Happy with this start. Now let's get Wheeler and an OF and a RP

    Grandal - Early Off-Season Speculation

    I like where you guys are going. My views have adjusted in the past few weeks. I'd be ok with Grandal + Wheeler as an offseason. I'm really coming around on N. Castellanos as well. I like Castellano's age and his hitting ability. Would be OK to have an OF of Cast + Eloy + Roberts and an IF of Grandal/Abreu/Madrigal/Anderson/Moncada. No weak spots there, just a lot of youth inconsistency and of course suspect defense. Pitching we'd have Giolito/Wheeler/Kopech/Lopez/Cease which can be decent if Kopech/Cease/Lopez develop. Then maybe we ought to sign a RP or two.
  5. Betts would be so awesome on the W'Sox. I'd love for that to happen. But I'd be so F***ing worried about signing him. Any deal for 1-year would be a disaster.

    Predict the Market: FA Contracts

    I'm starting to come around to the idea of something like : Wheeler, Ryu, Grandal, Castellanos. Not a huge fan of Pederson. But that would be a very interesting offseason. A lot of timebombs there with Ryu and Wheelers deals possibly blowing up in our faces, but I'd at least consider that an A offseason.
  7. I can't believe how bad this has developed... Just ~5 or so months ago I was enjoying the skill set of Breg + Altuve + Springer + Alvarez + Correa and amazed at the squad. Now, they are the most hated team in all of sports. It's truly despicable. has there been any calls to take away their 2017 world series? I wonder what baseball will do about this.

    Predict the Market: FA Contracts

    I think they failed unbelievably bad with Machado/Harper. They absolutely should have acquired one or both. Machado would have been a slam dunk for this team. I have no problem going after Betts even harder. The w'Sox are not going to be a top team with waht they have. They need to make a big add at some point likely in both OF and SP.

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    There's a reason not to expect the worst when it comes to free agency with this organization? This organization has failed hard in free agency almost every year (on that same note, so have the Bulls).

    Rendon Thread

    I think there is a solid argument for Rendon over Machado especially for a White Sox team that is allergic to giving out huge long contracts. However, just because Machado/Harper performed mediocre to expectations isn't a good analysis IMO. I think they are going to rock for the terms of their contract.

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    Nice of you to remember :). I wouldn't call myself a W'sox fan, but this board is the best board for offseason talk. Padres didn't do it for me, I ended up more of a Rays fan, but honestly, I don't really follow any personal team right now. Just enjoying MLB the Show.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Let's take a stab: Y. Grandal - White Sox, 4/68 N. Castellanos 4/58 J. Abreu - 2/28 RP W Harris 2/18 (or Will Smith for more) SP - Damn, I really don't know. I REALLY don't want Keuchel but he's the most realistic. Ryu? Eh. Wish I could say Cole. All contracts from: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/11/mlb-free-agent-predictions-2020.html

    I'd be fine with spending big on Cole/Strasburg, but the W'sox won't do that. Hell, I'd give Cole whatever he wanted. That's fine. Wheeler needs to be a decent price for me to go after, if he was, I'd certainly be on it as I love me some Wheeler.

    What we all thinking of Yordan Alvarez long term? Stud or dud? Dud'd in the playoffs pretty hard and wouldn't be the first rookie sensation to burn out.
  15. I'm big on defense. I want good defenders. Having Cast in the OF would scare the shit out of me.
