  1. Speaking of, whatever happened to Ranger/Rongey? We scare him off?
  2. Is there evidence for this? I've only heard about how loyal the org has been, to a fault, nothing about burnt bridges for a million here or there. The "snitty for less money" thing sounds like the Astros or some comparable team on the other end of the spectrum.
  3. It's 10am CT, less than 24 hours after we received any information from anyone even tangentially related to having real information - I think we need to relax and let things develop as they will. We haven't missed anything, he hasn't passed on us, the off-season isn't lost - it's just a process.

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    My understanding of the process means it gives us a chance to clear a spot on the 40 earlier in the off-season as the decision to non-tender isn't due for a couple months. If our intention was never to bring him back, might as well start that process early to give ourselves flexibility, right?

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    The article is a few weeks old but I haven't seen it shared anywhere so thought it worth mentioning: Kiley McDaniel at Fangraphs predicts his market is not what we think and that he'll sign at 4/$68M https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2020-top-50-free-agents/ FWIW, in that same article Kiley predicted Grandal at 4/$70M

    Personally, I won't believe it until Peavy44 confirms it.

    Isn't IncarceratedBob the know-nothing blowhard that cubs fans absolutely swear by? Probably sharing another person just throwing stuff at the wall, but that's what the off-season is until he actually signs somewhere.

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    Wasn't there a marketing slogan to that effect in the mid '90s or around the "good guys wear black" era, or am I making that up? Feel like there's definitely an opportunity to brand this as a young & fun team, in line with MLB's "let the kids play"

    Brb, I'm going to go lurk in the Wheeler thread refreshing every minute and wait for Tony's eye emojis there too

    A Realistic Offseason

    Our seat at the table might be the upgraded to the adults table this year!

    Yesterday Rosenthal had an article suggesting we might be able to get Benintendi if we take on Price or Eovaldi's contract with it.

    Angels decline $14 million option on Kole Calhoun

    With a trade, what value does Yolmer have? I'm not sure how his contract situation works with a trade - would we have to tender him a contract first before we trade him, or can we trade him first and let the other team pay the arb price? Does he even have value as a trade piece (not as a headliner but a sweetener)?
