  1. If Jon Jay helps deliver Machado, who the fuck cares is Avi is better? If he doesn’t, then it might matter.

    Cubs bringing in mystery partner for network

    Obviously not with game content, but if they could somehow partner with the Bears, it could go a long way getting their channel in most homes.
  3. Joc is not bad. I have always kind of hoped the Sox went after him the last couple of years. Seems to be the odd man out in LA all the time but is still a good player. But at this point, if you are going to lose him in 2 seasons, giving up value doesn’t make a lot of sense. Bummer, fine. He seems like he will be OK, but acquiring someone similar shouldn’t be too hard if needed. Fuller, OK. It doesn’t look like the Sox plan for him is working. Even Frye, it’s not like he is Billy Wagner or even Zach Britton. Next man up is probably just as likely to be around 3 or 4 years from now. But a guy like Bush maycome back to haunt them. Especially is Joc is a 2 year guy.
  4. Not paying Hill or Joc, and getting Alonso and Jay off the books after 2019, more than pays for Pollock.
  5. If you think about it, it probably makes more sense for the Sox to sign Pollock. He is better than Joc. You don’t have to pay Hill $18-19 million for probably 125 innings. And you keep your prospects. if it is just Fuller and Bummer, I could see why they would do it. But they have to add to that, it would be showing a lot of impatience.
  6. Who knows if there is anything to the rumor, but I do think Joc did some work with the new hitting analytics guy.

    Manny: All Quiet on the Rumor Front

    Didn’t he say less than 24 hours ago the White Sox were negotiating through the night, now some mystery teams ? I guess if you mention every possibility, one of them will be right eventually, and you can show everyone years from now who know you are full of shit.

    When a guy brags he had a trade 3 months in advance, you know he's just guessing.

    He's been pretty brutal lately, but he is a guy the White Sox had a lot of interest in a few years ago.

    Manny: All Quiet on the Rumor Front

    We all know Manny wants to go to the Yankees. The only reason he is entertaining other offers is money. So if he still goes to the Yankees, it was because the other teams, including the White Sox, failed to offer him enough money. It's pretty simple. It's not calling them cheap, it's saying they didn't offer enough.

    And the White Sox didn't offer him enough money.

    If Machado's price is $175 milliion, that's a little more than half what many of us thought it would take. You would think the Phillies could go for both.

    Manny: All Quiet on the Rumor Front

    I don't see where it would serve them any purpose. I just think it's either a case of accurate with a smaller number of suitors than hoped, or someone who has a track history of being great source to these guys, suddenly being way off.

    Manny: All Quiet on the Rumor Front

    This makes no sense though. A. If the White Sox have a legit $250 million bid, getting everyone to believe it's $175 million accomplishes nothing. They still are $75 million in front. And if the bid actually is $175 million, Lozano doesn't want that out there. He's looking for $300 million plus. If there really was someone willing to go near there, you would think they would have had some extensive discussions by now. It's probably either accurate, or what guys who are usually accurate are passing along, and perhaps they are a bit off now.

    Plus they own half the neighborhood. Their cash registers are ringing all day and all night on home game days.

    He basically lived across the street from me. I had no idea until he sold his house.

    Hopefully we will get to find out.
  19. His second half was insane. 76 games 31 homers, 26 doubles .387/.451/.816 split. He almost had a 1.300 OPS the last half of a MLB season.

    Ricketts to dodge fan questions at Cubs’ Convention

    Smart move. It would just turn into a meatball paradise. Listening to Cubs fans now, you would have no idea they won 95 games in 2018, and have averaged 97 wins the last 4 seasons. I hope Sox fans, if given the same opportunity, don't act the same way.

    Manny: All Quiet on the Rumor Front

    When you are looking for $300 million +, the last thing you are going to do is broadcast the team that supposedly has the lead has offered not too much more than half of what you want. I just think there is misinformation both ways, and a lot more of it than there used to be. Some sources which have seemingly been good for years, might not be good now. Some new ones emerge, and there are a thousands of phonies who like to be considered insiders, yet have no info and either take a shot, come to some conclusion based off the sources they have liked, or in some rare instances, actually know something. Let's face it, we have had more posters on this board that supposedly know something about these negotiations, than any other negotiation or trade in this board's history. The fact is, there are people with the White Sox , relatively high up, that have no idea what is going on.

    The White Sox and Machado don’t know when he will sign. There is no chance someone on twitter does. They are all just guessing.

    Lazaro’s message said Olney and Nighty have been inaccurate regarding the details of the White Sox level of interest. Is that the offer, or is this whole thing phony, and the White Sox are chasing Harper?
