    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Cook County coroner data shows what you would expect in terms of age and comorbidities for novel coronavirus deaths. Almost all above the age of 55 with underlying health conditions. They update every day I believe here... https://datacatalog.cookcountyil.gov/Public-Safety/Medical-Examiner-Case-Archive/cjeq-bs86/data

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    The numbers will speak for themselves even before Easter that for the most part Trumps efforts to open back up will fall upon deaf ears, if he still is singing that tune. But again, for the most part. There will still be his loyal base that doesn't care about numbers. Ever. And will side with him no matter how many are dying.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    Thats pretty crazy that one fake random tweet gained traction like this. Usually it may get some talk on a message board but to have so much of twitter talking about it with no others jumping in as well, I just don't get it. Is it all because he guessed the Mookie info before others reported it as official?

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    What would have been his remaining controlled years if he didn’t sign this deal?

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    What is so terrible about Puigs stats that have people ripping on him here? He also has a cannon in the outfield, correct? If you don't like the guy because of his personality then I get it but to say "he sucks" is disingenuous.

    Yes we know that but the Sox could also be feeding the three knuckle heads as well and it could be with a motive we aren't aware of. The off season is fun again so I am happy for that.

    Bruce doubles down.

    Hector has always operated like he cared about his credibility. It doesnt seem like he would throw anything out there that he wasn't fairly certain on. He retweeted Bruces tweet from yesterday debunking Sox interest yet he came right back today regardless of Bruces source saying that they are interested? I would trust Hectors inside info over Bruce any day regarding latin talent.
  9. You gotta be f'in kidding me Hector.

    I’ve listened to Bruce for years. I honestly think he is like that because everyone gives him a hard time for either being wrong or uninformed , including his colleagues. So he is defensive and tries to over compensate.

    LOL at all the condescending comments from everyone towards Bruce on that tweet. People do not respect him at all. Ahahahaha

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    So our boy Hector Gomez shared an article linking the possibility of Puig to the Sox. Then added to a comment from a different post about the Sox possibly adding even more to their lineup after the EE signing. It seems as though he thinks that Puig is a real possibility. I just dont know why Puig would choose the Sox situation. Maybe just wants to win?

    Why would a platoon role improve Puigs stock for the future?
  14. If you were Collins what would you be thinking after the Sox just put out big money to bring in a starting catcher, a DH, and signed Abreu for three years? You are thinking I probably need to get in another situation because I will have very little opportunity here as it stands.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Too bad he isn’t really a catcher.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    I am stifled at why people believe that Collins is some sort of offensive juggernaut in the making. His track record doesn't imply that likely to be the case. People fall in love with the OPS I guess.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    He will be 25 this Feb. The clock is ticking on his window to produce and it doesn't look like he is going to be offered an overwhelming amount of opportunity in the near future to do that. We shall see what happens but to me, the writing is on the wall.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    I kind of feel like the Sox have already made up their mind with Collins. Dude is as good as gone judging by their actions.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    This is good. They will leave themselves with future financial flexibility plus you know the Sox will be major players in the mid season trade market to go after any nice and shiny pieces available that route as well. That is something they have never shied away from. They may be cheap but they have always been willing to roll the dice and trade pieces to acquire proven assets. Should be fun.

    Possible extension with Robert

    This would be nice.
