    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    personal relationships matter in sports like anything else and the "pot odds" if you will here are huge for the Sox. They've already invested A LOT of the rebuild in making a big FA push this offseason for a Whale. What's a rather meaningless prospect like Call and 9 million or so dollars when they've already pushed so many chips into the pot?
  2. the real winner here is soxtalk's new format. slaying the traffic and posts.

    Rosenthal: Could Harper be headed to the southside

    Shorter Boras: Usually JR is too cheap to acquire my guys but if he wants to break the bank and give out a record breaking contract like Belle again, I'm all ears!

    Eloy playing winter ball

    The incredible thing about him is I don't think he's had a bad WEEK since he became a Sox. He's had some bad games, but dude is always slugging.

    White Sox acquire Ivan Nova

    really? you watched the Sox last year right? Getting a 6 inning 4 earned run start is going to be like a complete game shutout after the Migo and Shields and young Reylo and headcase Gio year.

    Morosi: White Sox interested in "both Machado and Harper"

    Meh, guess you guys aren't NBA fans.

    Morosi: White Sox interested in "both Machado and Harper"

    Why does Harper like Chicago so much? No offense to Chicago, helluva city, but in the sports landscape it's LA/NY/MIA then everywhere else as far as destinations.

    the first rule of being a message board "insider" is to not b**** when people don't believe you. This might be your first rodeo but anybody that posts here for years has seen people like you come and go, and usually it's because their "sources" turned out to be fever dreams. Toughen up.

    Dodgers have reached out about Jose Abreu

    Goldschmidt is a legit star. His worst seasons are about as good as Jose's bests. He's projected for 4.2 fWAR on Steamer, Jose is projected at 2.4. I'd go ahead and take the over on that delta of 1.8 fWAR for 2019. I keep saying it over and over but just observing Jose and looking at the back of his baseball card -- he's an old 31. I do think he is 33 or 34.

    Dodgers have reached out about Jose Abreu

    Man this dude is over rated here. He is a an utterly fungible 2-4 WAR 1B that is probably 2 years older than his listed age. Nice player, not a star, not anymore anyways. Had a great rookie year. Love him to death as a clubhouse guy but if the right deal is out there you move him as in 3 more years, when in theory the Sox should be absolutely cooking, he will be long out of his prime.

    Thome flew to Vegas to meet with Harper

    Because he's not good enough. If it was a guy that consistently put up 6+ WAR sure, but Harper? If he's putting up a 3-4 WAR seasons and is asking for a clause to pay him like a top 3 guy that's a deal breaker IMO. The Sox would essentially be at the whim of the FA market on a yearly basis. That's going to make any long term planning difficult if not outright impossible. Too many variables that are outside their control. Just give him an opt out after year 3 or 4.

    Thome flew to Vegas to meet with Harper

    That would be a poison pill IMO and the Sox would be insane to give that to him.

    Give him a personal services contract for free skoal for life.
