    Corey Kluber thread

    Projections are pointless for guys coming off of injuries, but I do hope this happens.

    Someone needs to edit this to say, "he's only a #3 starter anyway"

    Foodies: Other Bullpen Depth Pieces

    You say this like it is a bad thing. They aren't going to sign 10 major league contracts for the pen. Some of these guys will need to be on MiLB deals to get them into the system as depth. Guys want chances, and no one is signing to be the 11th guy in a pen, if they have a chance to be the 5th guy somewhere else.

    Thinking through the years, Soxtalk has been pretty equitable in who they hit... black, white, Latino, doesn't matter.
  5. The arb trials are coming up very soon if people don't settle. That's all that is about ReyLo.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    The 1st three pieces I am ok with, as I think we can easily and mostly cheaply replace. I don't want to deal Kelley without getting a proven star 8n return.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    I am pretty lucky right now, but I know a lot of people who aren't. I live in a rustbelt town full of people with skills that match last century's job market.

    Two of the three were before coming to Chicago.

    Taking OK QBs and ruining them isn't the same thing.

    Bad decision making on personnel is not the same thing.

    After seeing Glennon, Trubisky and Foles? I can.

    And the Bears has?

    Yoan fully recovered from Covid

    If you access, this is a great read. In it he states he didn't full recover from Covid until after the season ended, he was upset that Ricky is gone, and that Abreu is an MVP.

    NFL Thread 2020-2021

    There is an underlying assumption that the Bears could have utilized Watson in a way that unlocked his talents, and based on what we have seen so far, that is a leap I am not willing to make.

    This is how we will end up getting the real dirt on Trump. If Rudy doesn't get paid, you can bet he will have resting snitch face. https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/trump-wont-pay-rudy-giuliani-election-legal-work-032513094.html?soc_src=social-sh&soc_trk=fb&tsrc=fb&guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cDovL20uZmFjZWJvb2suY29tLw&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAACD_ywBzMX9rv1uL3CUy24l1S__keluMMDvnhXD1YuCr2nZVEcXByhoV7uzdpZpbqf4oYOCkg64zdtgfnH9CMF0V-gw41SWCrWJpMVKaEIbpQAigio6j0NSlJxSNQC36vdi183QZ-j2LiZX674C5pRASTuIAzmSiIu5JHV4l5OQo

    Pitchers and Catchers Report

    I thought 6 was defacto retired?

    Corey Kluber thread

    If Kluber really has that much interest, I bet he gets into at least the 1 year $10 million range for a base. Maybe a performance based option year at a higher salary?

    Lucas Giolito Reddit AMA

    I think it is the exact opposite. i think because they all got to see Nick play for years before he was drafted, everyone has already decided what he is going to be. If he was coming in from Latin America he would still be unknown and exotic, so people would be projecting a lot more optimism towards growth and advancement being possible.

    Welcome to the dark side. We have ketchup.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Sure. But plenty of guys are cut before the end of their contract, and those are not refigured. They payout options are ONLY 4/54 and 13/54.

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    This must be the dude bidding up all of the Abreu auctions on WhiteSox.com so I can't win any!

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Like I said before, it is either 54 million paid over 4 years, or 13 years.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    My guess is they are looking at it as 3/54 and coming up with 18m/yr.
