    $15m and two moves to finish the roster

    He stayed healthy last year 🤷‍♂️

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    That Reddit rumor has to be bullshit unfortunately.

    Mets GM Jared Porter fired

    Important life lesson here, but before you send 67 sexually oriented text messages (including a dick pic) to a member of the opposite sex without getting any sort of response, maybe just rub one out and call it a day.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    There is suddenly some real smoke that the Sox may be exploring trades for controllable starting pitchers. First, we had this series of tweets from our raBBit: Next, fathom posted this little nugget that he heard from a Steve Stone interview yesterday: Now, the foodies have jumped on the bandwagon with these tweets:

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Lester getting $5M makes it feel like Quintana & Richards should get closer to $10M. They better find a way to land one of these guys. Also, random thought, but given all the concerns over Richards’ health, if we signed him I wouldn’t be against forming a Garrett tandem with him and Crochet. Cap Richards at five innings per start and then give Crochet three afterwards. If we are going to use Crochet out of the bullpen, I do like the idea of keeping him on a starters schedule and this may be a way to solve that. And if Richards were to go down at some point, I’d probably just replace him with Kopech and keep the same arrangement going.

    They were but that doesn’t change what actually occurred

    Musgrove to Padres

    They simply have an owner who wants to win above all else.

    Musgrove to Padres

    Fernando Tatis Jr signed for like $800k. I get the hit rate on these kids is low, especially for us, but I’d rather have three lottery tickets then sign a guy like Sanchez who is both older and with a limited ceiling. At some point you’re bound to get lucky and hit with one of these teenage signings if you keep investing in that area.

    Mets GM Jared Porter fired

    They hired him after they already knew about the DUI, why would they fire him over it simply because it became public? Regardless of how you feel about TLR, this is a very different situation.

    Mets GM Jared Porter fired

    I’m guessing he means for not firing La Russa despite the fact he was aware of the DUI before hiring him. Regarding Porter, not sure how he keeps his job after this. Who want to work with this creep?

    Thank You Jerry Reinsdorf!

    I felt it was time to celebrate our great owner Jerry Reinsdorf and applaud him for going all out amidst a financially crippling pandemic. Times are tough, even for billionaires, but that’s not stopping Jerry from playing at the top of free agency and doing what needs to be done to deliver us a World Series caliber product. Come October and we’re holding that beloved trophy, don’t forgot moments like when Jerry won that bidding war for Adam Eaton despite the financial duress it likely caused him. We truly are lucky to have an owner who puts winning above all else atop our organization. Thank you Jerry from the bottom of all our hearts!! Looks like great minds think alike as Paul Sullivan wrote a fantastic piece about this very subject. I recommend everyone read this and thank Paul for this excellent, though-provoking article. https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/white-sox/ct-chicago-white-sox-liam-hendriks-jerry-reinsdorf-20210116-rhgupqhn5rhivlpu7xh5jyqnxq-story.html?outputType=amp&__twitter_impression=true

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    At this point, you simply sign Quintana or Richards and let your second tier prospects build up their values. If Stiever’s stuff returns to form and he pitches well in Charlotte, he could be a very nice trade chip to pair with one of the young arms in Kannapolis come July. Right now, too many of our prospects have suppressed values and it makes trading for a high end starter challenging without including Vaughn or Kopech.

    Not sure what he means “forthcoming White Sox moves will make more sense” in regards to Crochet when he suggests Quintana & Richards are primary targets.

    Musgrove to Padres

    The Sox have gotten progressively better since the 2018 draft, but until they take a prep in the 1st they are still well behind the curve. LatAm is another story and while I love the Cespedes & Vera additions, we can’t keep ignoring the top of the 16 year old market like we do and expect to be competitive. Unfortunately Jerry doesn’t understand signing young LatAm prospects has the highest ROI in baseball.

    Why are these mutually exclusive? Nothing does matter until we have a QB and Nagy / Pace should not be the ones to lead that process.

    New Rumor from Hector

    Him hyping up a signing that’s been known for six months is beyond lame, but definitely feels like that’s how this will shake out.

    Musgrove to Padres

    Not the end of the world, was fascinated by Musgrove but that was also assuming a semi reasonable price and I don’t think we could have pulled something like this. Oh well, on to the next one.

    Musgrove to Padres

    And the fact we traded none of them other than Walker and even then we have nothing to show for it. Still can’t believe we couldn’t extract an older lottery ticket type prospect for Basabe, although I guess we can add that to the long list of ways the Padres have fucked us...lol.

    You mean over-slot college hitters in the second aren’t the way to go?

    The Padres ain’t fucking around. Pretty nuts they have added Snell, Darvish, & Musgrove and still have a half dozen top 100 prospects.
