    Rays to Sign Avi

    I had hoped we would sign him to an incentive laden deal. This was a bit lower than I expected. Funny guys rarely take that kind of deal from there team as it is often perceived as "disrespectful". Then they end up taking less somewhere else.

    Who's Got Options?

    Agree on Rondon. If we don't sign Machado and have another semi tank year why not let him try 3b. A little concerned it was his first year with power. Either developed or something else

    Sox Spin on mini-camp

    Easier to get horse steroids etc.........lol
  4. In retrospect, I wonder if just letting him dh all year and rest in the winter could have avoided surgery or it was inevitable it was going to tear.

    Rodon's potential would be the allure for Cincy as they can't pay top dollar or get FA pitchers in there. Rodon has three years of control vs at least six years in the return so I thought something might have to go back their way. Just spit ballin'. If Anderson/Moncada develop the reverse situation may present itself in Madrigal (please everyone don't hijack into a Madrigal discussion) one day.

    I was thinking about this is regard to no Machado/Harper thread. That thread has gotten so long I wanted to split this out to get opinions. Nick Senzel is the Reds top prospect, 60 FV, #6 overall in baseball per MLB. That is just behind Eloy and ahead of Kopech for reference. He is a third baseman which we certainly could use. He is blocked at the MLB level to the point that they are talking of trying to get his bat in at 2b or even CF. Suarez is ahead of him at third. A 4 plus WAR player, signed to a six year extension at 60 million. The Reds seem to be interested in going for it rather than rebuilding so while I would be happy to get Suarez, they probably keep him. They seem to be looking for more pitching and CF. While I don't see a MLB ready Sox CF player could Carlos Rodon and a mid prospect get something done? If they wanted prospects would you substitute Cease for Rodon? Just wanted to toss this out but it seems like they could move one of their controlled third basemen rather than play Senzel out of position. They would still have India in the pipeline for down the road.(I consider India to far from MLB to target at present). So something along Rodon + Basabe or Walker for Senzel or Suarez(May have to add more if Suarez with 6 yrs control )

    Fifth Starter

    I was thinking along those lines. He seems pretty good first time thru the lineup. What if you pitched him two innings, twice a week. The fifth starter slot and then 2-3 days later. Ideally, with off days, every third day to have on a schedule. Roughly 60 appearances 120 innings. That would have value. If second pitcher doing good you might get thru the game or to your late guys.

    FS: Focus on Luis Curbelo, healthy and ready for 2019

    Seems like a likable guy. This will be a big year for a lot of players in the organization. With the improved depth, it will be produce or be bypassed. 40 man slots will be much tighter next year. It might be nice for a monthly minor league review of not just the prime players but the fringe players who are playing their way on or off teams.

    Top 5 Least Favorite White Sox

    Was Linebrink a bad person? I remember him being very effective, then sucking. Always thought he just got over used or something. Clayton Navarro Swisher Kotsay as above many Kenny gets his guy acquisitions Santo/Kessinger just as cub lifers

    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    If you don't get Machado, Alanso could still have value. You probably platoon him as last year he struggled vs LHP and it may avoid his option triggering. However, his ops was around .780 vs rhp in 2018 and about .900 in 2017. If he is over .800, and not likely to trigger his option, you could probably flip him for something useful at the deadline.
  12. Wondering if it is because he is assigned or his rights are assigned to their AA team. I remember him in game threads. Looked like something clicked for him this year in DSL though a bit older at 20 than some of competition.

    White Sox acquire Ivan Nova

    The move is ok but I don't like the lottery ticket. We helped them move salary and they should have got a forty man filler or a AAAA player not someone with any chance of being significant. This takes a 40 man spot, everyone will say who cares but they matter. If we don't fill our roster with whales, it represents someone we could have protected or taken a chance upon.
