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

    Do what he Dodgers thought was a good idea years ago. Take on the Red Sox bad contracts because while those guys are over paid they can help. I am talking about Price and JDM.

    Sox in on MadBum

    If he pitches like last year that is a good contract.
  3. Hopefully they have a greater impact than Jon Jay and Yonder Alonso.

    Sox in on MadBum

    That's only temporarily. I'd stay far away from Ryu and I think anyone that has to keep an eye on a budget will agree. He seems like a perfect Yankee, Giant or Dodger signing or even the cub.
  5. This is last off-season all over again just earlier. We get the Joc rumor and the leading candidate for a top free agent then everything fades away and the White Sox were at the table but in the end the cost was too much for their budget and philosophy. The White Sox are not in on Ryu, Cole or Stras. Carry on.
  6. He wasn't on the mound when they won. That will be the thing that surprises me forever. They are on a nice run but it will be interesting how it goes from here. If the White Sox don't change their stance on the international market this rebuild will be short lived.
  7. Don't they now have 2 spots open? Are they just making room prior to the winter meetings should something open up or other teams try and do the same thing the Sox are doing with their versions of Palka and what not.

    Dallas tried that last year. I am thinking the White Sox are going to overpay to end it early.

    Rice had some big plays early and was inside the 30 four times in the first half but couldn't capitalize. Dropped a lot of passes. They were getting open often downfield. The Warren DL was as good as I have seen and I have seen a lot of high school football. Warren had two big plays to make it 14-0 and the score to make it 14-0 took the air out of Rice. It really could have been 0-0 going into the 4th quarter. I will give Rice credit they played hard and made a game of it but seemed to have been worn down. Warren was the better team as was LWE v Marist. Greg the Naz QB has ties to Rice and if not for where the family lives he would be at RIce. The 7A and 8A will both be great games.

    Score is not indicative of game. For 3 quarters it was an awesome game. 8A is real football.

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    This is an overpay and a JR loyalty move. If he sucks they release him there is no hit to salary cap or anything like that. I think there is more benefit to him being around than we know. Hoping extensions for Moncada and Robert are the result. A lot of yelling at the clouds the last two days with the White Sox actually spending money in these two threads. Both moves are solid baseball moves.

    All right Brian and Greg time to get it on. Rice and Marist over hauled their programs this year and are playing their best ball at the right time. I think they both met teams that are just deeper this week. I think Loyola was a tad over rated this year and both Rice and Marist got great draws. Warren and LWE will be a good one but if Marist and Rice pull it off, Greg you need to Uber to Reilly's Daughter as that will be the epicenter of something. MC and Rita should both be downstate as well. Rita in 5A is something as they should be much higher as they have zero kids playing both ways and every team they play has many. Would love to see them play MC or Naz.

    Minooka is beatable. Should be an evenly matched game. MC coach has lost 2 games in two years I think so that change is not really insane. I get your point but they had a replacement right there for them Badke doesn't run the offense. There is an MC guy doing that now and they have great running backs similar to St Rita so go with what works. They have nice drives that can easily take 5 -7 mins off the clock..
