    Yolmer left his heart in SF

    He would have started for the Sox at least for two months at second base and then play 2 days a week as a fill in for sure. Seems like a nice cheap option for the Sox and now a nice cheap option for the giants.
  2. I would have liked to see Sanchez with the whitesox on a minor league deal instead of the giants.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    It appears everyone has taken the sox stance on nick right now. Nobody signing the guy. As for abreu who cares what the Sox want to pay him. They have proven that if they want to spend money they have it and will spend. They kept konerko too long as well but he gave the Sox great years. Jr is loyal, so what... it’s his money not yours. Let it go. If Mazara does t work out he will be gone and the Sox will move on. Who cares if they gave up some minor leaguer who may or may not make it. They won’t wreck the window. They have a great lineup for the next few years, to me it’s about pitching. Do they have the arms long term? Everyone who is young is un proven Gio needs to prove it again. No stud. Pitching wins.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    the love of whitesox crap prospects amazes me. Win in the majors not the minors. Half if not three quarters of these guys don’t make it. The top guys are great the rest who the hell cares. Trade them and get people on the major league roster.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    I obviously missed the memo on the great Zach Collins that barely Hit 250 in the minors and sucked when he was brought up. His defensive skills have been questioned and now his bat. Yet this board loves the guy. If we acquired Collins in a trade this board would crucify Hahn. I think a lot of people fall in love with minor league junk because they met them at a game or know his girlfriend. The guy hasnt proven a thing. He is a third catcher or a bat off the bench on his best day. He frightens no pitcher in this league and has a giant hole in his swing. I will take the established 30 hr guy with 100 RBI’s. Sandwich him in the middle of the order and let him go back to back with abreu or Jimenez. Your not a winner with Zach Collins as your dh.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Thank you for keeping things real. Just read nine pages of depressing comments.
  7. Is this all because wheeler didn’t accept our over inflated deal and actually got input from his family to stay closer to home? If he would have signed does this post go out? We are criticizing him for overpaying on a catcher who we have needed desperately for years but cutting him down for not over paying for a 12 win pitcher? He extended Anderson and Jimenez and the latest trend is to not take extensions and go to the market and get overpaid. Let’s wait to see how the rest of the offseason plays out. We have a hole in right field, the bullpen, and a second baseman for at least this year. I do think we were aggressive on wheeler and if the Phillies or Mets didn’t participate we would all be celebrating. People go where they want to live. I left this board years ago because of hysteria and daily anxiety about how great our minor league players were. I come back to view every hot stove just to get info. Nice to see little has changed. Keep in perspective we have a lot of holes to fill.
  8. Sometimes even if you throw money to travel it’s not the same as living in the area you want. Ball players travel and are away from home a lot spouses and kids want to feel comfortable when their husbands are away.You don’t know health issues or kid issues with the family and maybe she wanted to live close to her family as she might be very close to them. I know I gave up transfer opportunities with more money to stay as my wife wanted to live 20 minutes away from her family. You can also credit his agent for using the Sox and others to help drive up the philly contract to get what they wanted in an area they wanted to live. Think the Sox stepped up here and if the Phillies didn’t enter the fray they would have won based on the other teams in the running. It’s time to shift and over pay to some other slug.

    Blue Jays vs White Sox 6:07 PM

    QUOTE (fathom @ Aug 13, 2012 -> 09:16 PM) He was brought into a terrible situation there. I think Nate jones is tired and is missing location. He has pitched a lot this year and a few back to back games in recent weeks, but back on to septimo. The guy truly brings nothing to the table. I really don't see what benefit he brings to a playoff run on this particular team. If someone wants to claim him, so be it. When they sent Donnie veal down last time I questioned why not septimo, as usual its about options but if you cannot get a batter out on a lefty/ lefty situation then I would rather have Donnie veal who at least will throw a strike. We are really bad from the left side out of the pen. Right now nobody can get an out.

    Blue Jays vs White Sox 6:07 PM

    I truly do not know what Ventura and Cooper see in septimo. It makes very little sense to me. I think he has to clear waivers to be sent back, but really the guy purely sucks, could care less if somebody picks him up.

    Veal sent to AAA to make room for Gavin

    I agree veal looked decent and septimo not so good. Hard to understand.

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Jun 12, 2012 -> 12:45 PM) Soriano is playing on one leg, if you dont believe me watch a game. I ran that way the last couple of years with a bad knee injury, he's basically worthless. Rock he is playing on one leg and needs to go to the A league to be a DH. Cleveland makes a ton of sense as I believe Hafner is out. The reason I am responding to you is your avatar. I just want to keep watching it.

    Been away for awhile, someone used to post monthly screen backgrounders with the current schedule. Is anyone doing that anymore? if so where are they located?

    Sergio Santos traded to Toronto

    QUOTE (fathom @ Dec 7, 2011 -> 06:39 PM) It's insane that KW is being allowed to clean up the mess he created. it is fathom, this is JR loyalty getting in the way. When you meet everyday with the same people, you tend to start agreeing with them,never looking around. I was hoping that Larussa would somehow be part of the sox org, to get some different thinking around this team and ownership. It didnt happen. this is a huge mistake. Its like letting Bob Pulford continue to run the Blackhawks after he destroyed that team. JR needs an outsider that reports only to him.

    Buehrle Signs with Marlins | 4 yrs $58 mil

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Dec 7, 2011 -> 06:17 PM) Join the Club!!! The ticket rep didnt sound surprised whatsoever. me too rock, but I started when we signed ventura, that told me we would rebuild. No other reason to sign a guy who never managed anywhere. You know I am actually relieved, having these tickets and Blackhawk tickets were draining. That said, I am very curious to see what we get for these guys. Sox will always have room to jump back in.
