    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    You think Jerry Reinsdorf is going to "spend big money" on pitching? Our Jerry Reinsdorf?

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Yes, but the poster I was responding to was suggesting to bring Zobrist in to play second until Madrigal arrives, platoon with Mazara against “LHP”, and be a super utility guy. Despite Leury not being optimal against RHP, he is more than an adequate in-house solution to fulfill all three objectives. I would much rather go with him than try and squeeze out the last of the toothpaste left in a 39 year-old Ben Zobrist.

    Leury can do all of that.

    Pence makes more sense (rhyme intended) as a platoon partner than Puig, yet the Sox have been linked to the latter this winter with no mention of interest in the former.

    I’m actually getting more comfortable with a Mazara/Leury platoon. With their unique splits against RHP/LHP, respectively, it seems like the team would get very decent production out of the #8 spot in the lineup.
  7. You can count on one hand the number of major spending expenditures for premium talent this owner has made over the past 40 years to improve his organization’s ability to compete for a championship (the Robert signing being one of them). The fan base has been and is very aware of this reticence to spend like the major market team that they are, which is why many aren’t quick to rush a pat on the back to the owner on that rare occurrence when it does happen.

    Sox still looking at Puig?

    Do you think putting his locker in between Abreu’s and Grandal’s could serve to adjust his attitude some? Maybe the Sox’ clubhouse could be the best one for him at this point.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Yes to EE’s thunderous bat in the lineup at DH in 2020. No to Castellanos’ sub-par defense in RF for the next four years. The Sox can do better.

    Hats off to the Front Office

    Which team got the better pitcher to help them compete for a championship over the next few years? The Phillies or the White Sox?

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Wow - $90M. That would represent a 23% increase over the largest contract ever signed into effect by the White Sox, that mammoth (snicker) $73M contract handed over to Grandal. Yet even if Washington signed Donaldson at this amount, it wouldn’t come close to being their largest contract awarded. No, both the Strasburg contract recently renewed AND the Scherzer contract still in place both dwarf this potential Donaldson deal. Which begs two questions: is Washington a major market team that can magically afford all of these massive contracts? And when we hear the familiar phrase “The money will be spent”, does our fan base need to respond with “Yes...but by whom?”.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    Well, new poster, we certainly understand how the cubbies would benefit from such a stupid trade idea, based on how you articulated their benefits. Why would the White Sox even remotely entertain such nonsense?

    Time to rebuild the rebuild?

    I think you and I are essentially on the same page, in the sense that any and all of what Hahn, Williams, or Reinsdorf says these days amount to nothing but empty words. That we are officially in “Shut up. Just do it.” mode with these clowns. For me, and this was my point with sharing Stone’s post, but there is still time to make some meaningful moves this offseason. Not a whole lot of time, but some time. Six weeks or so until Soxfest, so if they come through with the types of acquisitions between now and then they’ve been claiming they’ll make, terrific. It should be a grand, ‘ol time at McCormick Place that weekend. If it’s another collection of the typical dumpster dive moves we’ve been accustomed to seeing in recent offseasons, well, it won’t be as much fun at the fan fest as it should be.

    This. Steve Stone captured it well yesterday when he noted that the offseason isn’t even halfway over, so people should just relax at this point. He followed that up with if we’re in the same position in February that we are now, then complain away.
