    Zack Wheeler Thread

    Talk about click bait...
  2. Val Heim passed away. He turned 99 earlier this month. He played for the Sox in 1942. The "new" oldest living MLB player is now Eddie Robinson, He turns 99 next month. He played for the Sox a few years and was an All-Star first baseman in 1951 and 1952 as a Sox player. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/robined01.shtml

    Eddie Robinson- Oldest Living Player

    Found this interview with Robinson, it's really interesting. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/effectively-wild-episode-1454-where-have-you-gone-mr-robinson/

    One thing I can not get over..

    Best case scenario...Sox win a World Series sometime in the next 6 years, and Tatis goes on to a Hall of Fame career. We get the trophy, and also get to chuckle at one of the worst trades in baseball history.

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    Sums it up nicely.

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    Seaver didn’t choose the Sox, though. He was taken in a free agent compensation draft after the Mets didn’t protect him. Fisk was big, but when Belle signed before Thanksgiving in 96, it was shocking and huge.

    Agreed. Especially to start the season. Maybe the Mercedes/Collins thing works out and another team goes after McCann in July and we get some bullpen help.

    I’m on board for adding a lefty-HamelS, Ryu, Keuchel. If Lopez gets traded this offseason, so be it.

    Wheeler would be an exciting signing, but there is a real chance he underperforms no matter who he signs with. I know Dan O’Dowd on MLB Network has said he wouldn’t touch him at the dollars he’ll end up with, but that’s just one opinion. The fit is there with the Sox and the money will be spent.

    Love that they’re learning from the mistakes of last year. Get a great offer out there early and force them to make a decision now. Hope it gets done!

    Maybe eventually, but in his rookie year, ease him in. I’m just glad we may have a 9-man lineup that is big league quality.

    Wheeler makes too much sense. Right guy at the right price, and the style probably would fit Cooper’s kinda guy.

    What’s your take on that?

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    I’ve been clear on this. I wouldn’t sign a player that got suspended as a big leaguer. Q and Kopech weren’t. And I already know what Grandal was suspended for. I hope he’s clean now.
  18. flavum

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    He was suspended in the past. That’s a fact.

    Another cheater on the Sox. Great.

    2019 MiLB catch all thread

    Vizquel left the organization. Called that.
  21. 7pm, but the Sox will announce sometime this afternoon. Probably before 4.

    White Sox Offseason Rumors

    A lot of out-of-town ignorance there, but I agree with Sherman’s overall theme of trying to get deeper. It’s time to at least crack 81-81 and be positioned for sustained playoff appearances in 2021-25.
  23. Roster moves coming Wednesday. Sox are at 33 now with Abreu back on. Good primer to read. Some obvious additions coming, but there could be some moves in baseball the next couple days for teams with tougher decisions.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Unfortunately, Cole or Strasburg isn’t going to happen. Maybe Giolito is our perennial ace- time will tell. Kopech, Cease have ace potential- again, time will tell. Basically, the Sox are on their own until they crack 81-81, then they might be able to persuade a whale to join the party.
