    what was with that six start stretch where he had ostensibly figured something out? was it just luck?
  2. So what is the exact makeup of the pen right now? Colome Herrera Marshall Bummer Cishek Fry and whoever our long man would be?

    Avi Garcia to Brewers, 2 years, 20 Million Total

    20 million total, not PER year, right? Sorry, the thread title is a little confusing

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Of course! I only omitted them because I think people aren’t really counting on production from Madrigal or Lopez whereas Kopech and Robert feel like assured major league talents. The former two could provide us with a major boost we aren’t expecting...

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    This was a terrible two weeks, with Wheeler balking at our top offer, the Ozuna non signing, and then Strasburg and Cole setting a literally impossible FA market. Everyone here is a little on edge lately because of it. I don’t blame the fanbase for being completely broken by a team that has changed direction a lot recently, proven absolutely nothing, and has had the same cast of characters for years at the top... who are now facing the biggest Sox playoff drought in 40 years. During 2020, we will probably have our best record in the last 9 years. Even without upgrades, it’s not hard to imagine this team, settling into its own, might be ready to be an 83 game winner...As is. Which is not done. Career years are certainly possible with some of these emerging stars. Imagine if Eloy is a 45-50 home run hitter? What if Madrigal hits .350 with an OBA of .410? We just don’t know. We have a ton of young talent, and there are still other upgrades out there. I still think we are a #2-#3 pitcher away from being potentially a division winner. I think people need to keep in mind that as of December 2018 literally no one expected either Giolito or Moncada to take that huge of a step forward- but they did. And now we take it for granted...imagine if that were to happen for Lopez and Madrigal this season. lets try not to tear each other to pieces during this brutal process

    Agreed on the pedigree. Regarding the age, we non-tendered Avi when he was 27, and I think we can all agree that was because of the pricetag more than anything else.

    I was just joking with a friend about this. This guy is literally the same guy as Avi. The difference? 5 million saved a year and a half later. We're such cheapskates.

    I'm coming around to the idea that having a 0.5-1 WAR RF in Mazara may be fine, as long as that guy's floor basically is his ceiling. If we're getting 20 HR, 25 2b, .261/.328/.442/.770, so be it. With all of the production we are projected to get elsewhere, that should hopefully be fine.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    The offseason day-to-day of wafer-thin rumor tweets designed to generate traffic is honestly just really exhausting.

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    After Abreu moves to DH, his defensive liabilities will no longer take away from WAR. Assuming the last half of his contract is almost entirely played at DH, is it much of a stretch to get to 6 total WAR?

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    I would be very interested to hear what critics of this deal think Jose’s numbers need to be over this contract to justify it

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    As long as Jerry looks at it as “Jose’s money lives outside of whatever salary cap we are targeting” I’m good with this. I really love Abreu and always have.

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    Thank you - haven't poured through the whole thread yet

    Abreu at C? I want some of what you're smoking 🙃 (I know you didn't mean that)

    Does this make Collins the odd man out? If McCann is playing DH and 1B some, Abreu is our primary 1B with some DH, and Grandal is our primary catcher, it seems like Collins is on the block. Especially with Vaughn on the fast track
