    Have we hit bottom?

    I have never been more down on the Sox in my life. Have not given up hope and will love this team. However, with the lack of a marquee free agent and all the pitching prospects going down or flaming out (except for Cease), I am starting to lose hope.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I'm for Abrams as well, take the high ceiling high school player.....
  4. No more moves to get Machado. Take the money or not. Hahn has gone all in. I would take Pederson for the right deal but have to look at the move as mutually exclusive of Machado. What a couple of months. This fun. The thought of competing in 2019 is exciting.
  5. I sure hope so. Has his name come up in rumors or is this a premptory statement, which I totally agree with.

    Sox still in the running for Harper/Machado

    Ottavino reminds me of Scott Linebrink.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    It would be really sweet! Don't Stop Believing!!

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    What is keeping me optimistic is that the floor seems to be $300 million. Not sure on terms, years, buy outs, but the Sox would not even be getting meetings if it were not at least that amount which would break MLB records and be a major Sox record. I'm still pessimistic, but something about these reports does not add up to me.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I hope you are right, this really did throw cold water on the evening for me. Just hope Hahn not being played and that he will actually sign a major free agent.
  11. Last time that I was so emotionally invested in a free agent signing was when all the signals were pointing to the Sox signing Tori Hunter, then he went to the Angels.

    This is agonizing.

    White Sox Sign C James McCann

    If he has some defensive prowess, I'm game. Let's hope!! Sox now have over $10 million tied up in the catching position for 2019. Now with the new trade, how much in salary do the Sox have tied up in 1B/DH types?
  14. I have done a great job of managing my expectations as to whether or not Hahn can sign Harper or Machado; however, with this trade my constraint has been lost. Why in the heck would the Sox need another 1B/DH, makes no sense unless it is attached to a larger prize.
