  1. 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.

    Harper part 3

    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?
  4. 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.

    Bryce Harper Updates

    Maybe I am naive but do you really think (if the money other places was equal) that he would go to Washington's Division rival and be hated by his former club, he might still be anyway; however, I am looking for any angle to give the Sox a leg up. I'm on Harper watch with the rest of you.......

    Dodgers have reached out about Jose Abreu

    Love the player, but all for trading him while his value is high......
  7. Tori Hunter spurned is the night before Thanksgiving as well. Things could start moving.

    Am I only the only 1 uneasy about this off season?

    Your Offseason Plan

    Actually quite stunned by this, not even a prediction of a signing in the top 50, but let's see what happens.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    Did ok with Kahnle?
  12. The White Sox are in the second year of a two-year penalty for exceeding their bonus pool to sign Cuban outfielder Luis Robert, so all of their bonuses will be for $300,000 or less. Anthony Espinoza (video below) is a quick-twitch shortstop out of Venezuela who is expected to sign with the White Sox. They’re also expected to sign third baseman Bryan Ramos and catcher Alberto Lemay Bernal, both from Cuba, and Venezuelan catcher Luis Pineda. For a while, the White Sox looked like they were going to sign Miguel Tejada Jr., a former corner outfielder who recently moved to shortstop, but now the son of the 2002 AL MVP looks like he might be headed elsewhere.
  13. Well said. What a disappointing weekend for Hawks and Bulls and now we will be told Monday that both teams are better (sigh) however signing Tejada would have been intriguing.
  14. Baseball America updated its AL Central International Signing preview and stayed that Tejada no longer coming to Sox. Boo....

    6/30 Games

    Pretty crazy that the Braves would give up on a 3rd rounder that quickly, but glad we have the chance to fix him.
