    Could you make a contingency on the deal if he gets tested positive for roids, since he’d be out like both years of deal

    If they trade Burger and he wins ROY on a different team do I still get all your money @Quin ?

    Fun fact but if we traded Colson we wouldn’t have a first round pick in our minors for at least 2 months

    Off Day

    Less baseball games would mean longer, more important baseball games. Can't imagine if we had 120 baseball games as long as the playoffs. Give me 162 2.5 hour baseball games and I'd be in hog, HOG heaven.
  14. I have a feeling the baseball biz strategy of pay dirt to sales and marketing people because you are offering a foot in the door to working for a baseball org may be running into "competitive labor market" for the first time in 30 years.
  15. I don't think baseball owners count as small business. Not even sure I could scrape the capital together for a Dunkin Donuts franchise. Just so @Chisoxfn feels safe, I will rule out creating a rival sox fan forum with my admin skills.

    Maybe, that would be nice. But even forcing hospitable stadiums to host more april games and balance it out with revenue sharing so it's not northern teams getting out ahead seems like the thing that could be done if you were capable of doing things to improve the sport and not just hovering around the size of bases because they can't argue back.
  19. He is my tatis Not really. I just wish a rule 5 happened this year (not that Kwan would have been on it, as apparently the guardians are aware of their own system talent)
  20. I was reading this article https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/mlb-teams-with-the-toughest-decisions-ahead-of-40-man-roster-protection-deadline/ Very interesting on the roster crunches. Sox definitely have a lot of room, and I don't know, not that concerned about a lot of them. Sousa, Perez (x2), Fernandez. And do we need Yermin, Rutherford protected? We have a lot of room. Guys I'd like: https://www.baseballamerica.com/players/99273/steven-kwan/ https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=kwan--000ste We may lose leury, and thus a good backup OFer. This guy bats LEFTHANDED omg and is a CF that batted .321 / .407 / .527 between AA and AAA last year. 23 years old, and will be one to watch if unprotected. https://www.baseballamerica.com/players/9375/ford-proctor/ I think this would require trading for a guy that doesn't need protecting. But this guy plays C, 2b and SS, and hit for .800 ops in AA last year. Granted, he's 24.

    4/10 Games

    Yeah. I mean from the zoomed out view, the sox had years of very old drafts and penalty-reduced INTL leading up to 2020. Shirley takes over, we presume he sees the cliff and does budget to get more young talent in, but covid means our 2020 draft is 5(?) rounds. So kanny was just this perfect storm of guys who barely played stateside, HS who missed the Great Falls step, ets. But it was still disappointing on the Kelly/Dalquist/Thompson side to me just because they had more team emphasis and Schaumburg time and were just so unprepared. Instead of making them hungrier it seemed to make them complacent. Excited to see how they respond.

    Good stuff. Two angles too, is it more a sign of things to come for white sox or sign of a step back for tigers pitching staff
