    Nah. More likely Collins and or Zavala.
  2. Would you rather the secret deal is Harper + Machado vs Pedersen + Machado?

    American Family Insurance Park?

    People called it Sox Park because that was the official name for the first few years, and again from the early 60's to mid 70's it wasn't always officially Comiskey.

    Cespedes Re-signs with the Mets

    can't wait for sox to sign Cespedes. One of my friends can't pronounce names well, and has already said Cespedes=Speedy (Gonzalez )

    Cespedes Re-signs with the Mets

    QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Dec 29, 2015 -> 11:05 PM) I could be mistaken, but it looks like that Patrick Howard guy deleted some of his sketchier tweets (Melky/LaRoche DH platoon, etc). Obviously he was a long-shot to begin with, but I'd say he's 100% full of s*** now. Edit: Looks like I was wrong and the Melky DH tweet is still there, but others do appear gone. Even given a golden nugget of info does not make his opinion matter.

    Alex Gordon Thread

    QUOTE (bucket-of-suck @ Dec 25, 2015 -> 12:32 AM) It's fluid. Salary is only one factor. Tough to call an order of preference just yet. They really like Gordon though... Is fluidity going to necessitate a deal to spin off somebody elsewhere for some salary relief? LaRoche, Danks?

    Alex Gordon Thread

    QUOTE (bucket-of-suck @ Dec 25, 2015 -> 12:19 AM) They are targeting an impact OF but the outcome is not only up to them. of course, just wasn't sure if they had it narrowed down to only pursuing one of them, and not the others for one reason or another

    Sox acquire Jeff Samardzija and Michael Ynoa

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Dec 9, 2014 -> 08:44 PM) Eaton too...sets the tone with his style of play and enthusiasm. Hopefully he also trains them on how to use Twitter to embarrass dumb cubs fans.

    New soxtalk banner

    Does IP Board not have a plugin to rotate banners/images? The Vbulletin site I manage has a banner rotation plugin and I can have many different banners, and each page load chooses one at random.

    Is there a market for Dunn

    QUOTE (Y2JImmy0 @ Nov 14, 2013 -> 11:34 AM) 1. Why can't people let go of AJ Pierzynski? He's not coming back. Stop suggesting it. 2. Why do people want to dump Adam Dunn so that the Sox can re-sign Paul Konerko? It doesn't make any sense. PK is Right handed which is one issue. He's also bad which is a 2nd problem. Dunn had a better year than PK last year. In fact, there aren't many seasons in which Konerko's year was better than Dunn's year. I am willing to bet that Dunn's season next year will be better than Paul Konerko's season next year as well. Come on guys. These things don't make any sense. The Sox already have a mascot. They don't need another one and that is what Paul Konerko would be at this point. I actually think that if the Sox could get some kind of return for Dunn, while paying a bit, there actually is indeed a good fit for AJ. He could be used as DH if not catching. LH bat and decent contact hitter. not to mention the impact on the clubhouse and fans. Not sure why you insist he cannot come back. It's not necessarily a high possibility, but stranger things have happened.
