  1. This is (1) a good thing for the White Sox but also (2) part of a growing reputation where we are great at getting the cheap extension done "I am fantastic at getting straight A's in all my summer school remedial courses." that's what kind of praise that is

    Trade Proposal

    I'd like to see more NBA-style trades like this.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Glimmer, but only in a headline: https://www.sny.tv/mets/news/latest-on-the-bryce-harper-sweepstakes-phillies-harper-significantly-apart-on-dollars/304248676

    i follow him but some of his stuff seems like coincidental jabs at things, some come true, some not

    Nolan Arenado to sign extension with the Rockies

    So if Boras now decided that for Bryce he wants the 10 years, the AAV record, and the total dollars record, what would that total dollar come out to, then? (just asking for hypothetical's sake)

    dont think we'll get harper but it was impressive how no one got Eloy/Sox trade ahead of time. When we want to shut the door, we can. I guess It seems like with Manny we tried to use the media a little, and then got burned by playing that game.

    Unlike Machado, this one is just sit back and see where he goes. No inspection needed.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Get superstars via draft and international. Use free agency for the completion of the team with strong talent. The course is now clear and we can disabuse ourselves of all the delusion that got us here, and start anew.

    No pitchforks, but this does signal that we are not serious on being anything but a Tampa type team that maybe could spend some more one day, but it's now confirmed we wont be market setters to blow away other offers. With our payroll very low we had set ourselves up for the first time to get someone elite, and it purely came down to money that we didn't. We can't pretend we didnt want him, because we acquired Dennis & Carl Wilson for DH and OF spots, to the tune of 13M of payroll. We have to be a prospect hoarding team that will then get the Lackey or maybe Lester type signings to round out a title contender........but it now is clear we will get our superstars internally or nowhere else. All I ask at this point is no more win-now trades. Just lose, lose, lose until you're out of this thing and have some more high 1st round guys stockpiled

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    i'm here for the long haul but just run this thing like a Tampa. Pile prospects. Know what you are. If the no-opt-outs thing is true, what were we even doing here. Dont take us there. Cespedes/Gordon - we wanted those guys. I am fine with finishing second with some reasoning behind the restraint. But when the prospects are in place, and you have the real core identified and set like the Cubs and Stros did, then you do the free agent signings (even if not high profile like this one) and you land them on the green with no questions asked. The one argument for No Manny that makes sense is that next year was not going to be a window year, and you were always going to have an opt out come into play, thus making Year 1 pointless
