    Andrew Benintendi traded to the Royals

    It’s just funny to remember how AB was basically untradeable for so many years

    Did We Go Cheap Not Signing Another Bat?

    Who is the best FA available that would reasonably fit into our lineup/bench that would also fit payroll?

    Colome to Twins, 1YR 5M plus option

    Shingo Takatsu had a sub 1.00 ERA for a period of time as well!

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    I’m happy to have our lineup face Colome this year
  5. Also congrats to Ash and Carlos on the birth of their second child Bo who was born today! Quite a day for the Rodon household, glad he’s not spending it looking at the hate on here.

    German Marquez Thread

    Marquez is nothing special at all. It would be absolutely foolish to trade Vaughn for him. I’ll go as far to say there’s a decent chance that a Rodon (or similar signing) could perform as well as Marquez. He’s not nearly good enough to warrant trading Vaughn.
  7. Too many people who believe past performance will equal the future (on high and low salary players). You need a roster that includes some “buy low” candidates. Every year there’s guys like Rodon who turn it around. He was put into a ridiculous position late in the season, I think this is a good risk/reward signing.
  8. Ok, well you’re free to be disingenuous if you’d like. Obviously Rodon’s stuff at its best is very different than the people you named, but you know this and are talking in hyperbole.
  9. It’s inaccurate to say we haven’t seen dominant outings, because we have! Now I agree those have been few and far between but we HAVE seen them. https://whitesoxpride.mlblogs.com/masterpiece-theater-83ce5f8bbd5
  10. I am extremely biased, but I think Carlos is going to have a great year. People forget how dominant this guy is when he’s healthy. I saw many many of his games at NC State and still can’t believe his career has unfolded the way it has...but it’s not over yet!
  11. Sheets isn’t a MLB player. Happy if he proves me wrong. If we could get a low minor leaguer with upside I would deal him.

    Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

    Can’t believe how willing people are to trade Vaughn for mediocre players. Sometimes we give Hahn a hard time, but holy sh!t am I glad some of our fans aren’t the GM!

    Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

    I have no clue how the last few pages relate to Cruz. Do we know where this stands?

    The Wainwright to the Cards Thread

    No guarantee on that. Range of possibilities on both of those pitchers is wide.

    Kris Bryant

    How is this possible?

    Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

    Vaughn is not going to be a bust. He has a very high floor. At very worst he’s a bottom third 1B/DH imo...

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    What do you guys guess is the best offer on the table currently?
  18. NCsoxfan

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    3/70 for Bauer Who says no?

    George Springer to Toronto. 6 years/150 million

    I’ll say the last 4y will be bad. This is a horrible contract. Happy to be wrong but I don’t think Springer’s style of play will age well.

    George Springer to Toronto. 6 years/150 million

    I’m calling for one solid year then a significant drop off in play. Glad we didn’t sign him.

    Musgrove to Padres

    Not upset
  22. NCsoxfan

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    Am I the only one who thinks he’s annoying?

    Sox & ReyLo settle at $2.1M

    His “gets hit hard to stuff” ratio is the highest we’ve seen since Javy Vazquez

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    Yes. Tough to argue we didn’t give up more future value for less time under contract.
  25. NCsoxfan

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    Is the only reason that the Sox had to give up so much more than the Padres for Darvish the contract? Seems like we kind of got fleeced in comparison.
