    Cease hired Boras as agent

    This was a fear of mine. Cease has the best stuff on the staff IMO.

    Soxtalk Member Age Range

    I'm 32. I remember reading WSI back in high school, and was a long time lurker on this site. Finally came to my senses and joined this place once I realized how much better it was.

    White Sox sign Brandon Finnegan to a Minor League Deal

    If Carson Fulmer is still getting shots, this guy might as well have a chance too 🤣

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    All conjecture. There is no way to prove that would actually come to fruition. They could just as easily line their pockets - only difference is they would be permanently bad.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Zero reason the 9th best team deserves the #1 overall pick. That system would end up permanently burring teams like the Pirates, Orioles, etc. Baseball needs to adopt similar methods that we see with other leagues. The lottery would be interesting for the top 5 or so picks. Also, allow picks to be traded. This one alone would prevent the need to tank a roster for years. The draft's purpose is to give bad/terrible teams a sense of hope for the future, not reward mediocrity or a "just not quite good enough" effort.

    It would be pretty funny if a flurry of moves are made once the lockout is over.
  7. So happy Minnie is finally in - should have happened years ago. Once of the nicest players I have ever met. You could tell how much he loved the game and the White Sox. Cannot believe that Allen continues to get screwed over.

    2022 Offseason Plan Thread

    Tim Anderson wasn't drafted as a 1B and shoehorned into SS. Vaughn is going to be a very good player... but at 1B, maybe LF. They need to keep him out of RF though if they plan on keeping Eloy in LF.
  9. That game suffered from the rainout. The energy leaving Sunday night was electric. Had we all been back the next day I feel like the crowd would have been close to what we all experienced Sunday. Although I’ll be honest, I have never been more exhausted (and hung over) after a game than I was that Monday.

    Can't participate in the FA Market when your boss is too busy Union-busting and conveniently misplaced his check book on November 28th!

    I would be ok with Sonny Gray. Not sure what that deal would like like, he has a super reasonable deal so I’d expect there would be quite a few teams interested.

    James Fox: Can’t Ignor-as Boras, Sox will spend

    Stroman isn’t coming here. He’s said so last year he would never play for LaRussa.

    White Sox sign Leury Garcia to 3 year deal

    I think you have to include Adolfo in this discussion as well. Assuming he isn’t moved for something, he is out of options. We’ve see in the past how that can give a guy a slight edge, plus he did hit 25 HR’s last season. I’m not expecting him to stick around, but he might actually have a little value if he looks like he can hold his own in ST.

    I'm probably in the minority in that I am happy the Sox stayed away from him. Soon to be 33 year old where most if not all his value is tied to his legs. He mashes RHP, but doesn't hit all that many HR's. If his legs go, the Mets will quickly regret that contract.
