    What should the max offer be for...

    I'm not with you, partner.

    Can't do the ownership thing. Other existing teams have to approve new owners, and they won't start that can of worms.

    White Sox acquire Ivan Nova

    I bet there were immediate comments here after the giveaway, partly because Shields was the antithesis of a serviceable pitcher. And, I never made a comparison to Yordi. The Tatis giveaway stands alone.

    White Sox acquire Ivan Nova

    There was immediate pushback on the Tatis giveaway. True, he was young and had not yet played pro ball, but Sox had just given him approx. $800,000 and our guru Paddy liked him. They had to have seen him work out. So did the Padres. Preller set up Hahn and took him to school. That's why guys like ESPN's insider (can't think of his name) was so shocked when he heard of the giveaway.

    Tulo released by Toronto (2 yrs, $38 mil left)

    When he came up with Rockies, I thought he had HOF written all over him.

    Harold Baines HOFer

    Lou Piniella just missed selection by one vote.

    Rule 5 preview

    Thanks, that's what I suspected. It just seems to me, that if they non-tender those guys at same time, they should know they can protect Thompson by adding him then. Unless, of course, they just don't think he is good enough. We'll see. I just think some team will select Thompson.

    Rule 5 preview

    Last I checked, Sox were at 37 roster spots. If so, why wouldn't we protect Zach Thompson?

    Harold Baines HOFer

    For many years, I had heard that 2866 base hits called for automatic selection to HOF.

    Winter Meetings Predictions

    Do you like Gorman better than Bryce Bush? Fowler is owed around $50 million. Geez, what a bad contract.

    Bryce Harper Updates

    Hope I'm not repeating a previous post, but ESPN.com has article today saying the top 3 for Harper are Dodgers, Phillies, and White Sox.

    Manny Machado Updates

    That whole non-hustle issue is way overblown. He plays hard. I don't like it when he steps on the first baseman's foot, but he usually runs hard.

    Details on Padres medical scandal

    Called him out and probably told Preller to trade him to the White Sox, the only team stupid enough to take him. Then Hahn complied and threw in Tatis.
