    Sox & Tribe, 6/2/19, Gio & Plesac

    Jimenez not so much. I cant wait for the day a highly touted white sox prospect succeeds immediately. Ive heard it does happen all across baseball every year

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    That’s my fear too. Everything suggests Eloy will be an impact player, but this is the White Sox. Every plan we have moving forward is assuming he succeeds. The rebuild is dead otherwise.

    This rebuild has to have those type of prospects, rare around the southside, who immediately succeed. And then (this is even rarer....) maintain that success! I know such an idea is unheard of among Sox fans but it does happen across the league every year. We can’t just expect every prospect to follow a Moncada/Giolitto timeline or else they’ll never be competing for anything

    True. There literally does seem like there’s no tomorrow with FA. No one else the fans should be excited about, atleast

    Yeah we better start getting some great production from the minors

    I’ll be more willing to believe the Nationals (or any other team for that matter) will meet his demands before us. Arenado was often thrown around as someone who we could pursue next year. Well, forget about that. The rarity of players like Machado and Harper hitting FA becomes more apparent.

    Nope thats what I expect him to be slugging....... 😉

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    If he is even half decent with 275/.330/.750+ type of production I’m sure overall we’ll be happy with how he’s starting. However, many are going to be justifiably upset watching him struggle. Eventually, SOMEONE in this rebuild is going to have to succeed immediately. It’d be nice to exceed expectations once in awhile too. We can’t have Giolitto, Moncada, Jimenez.....then later Cease, Madrigal etc all on three-four year timelines. It may be unfair, but oh well. We’re tired of watching the failures of this organization

    2/23 ST Games, split vs. LAD and OAK

    Yeah this offseason completely deflated the fanbase. How different it would have been with Machado....
  10. Flash Tizzle

    Worst off-season ever?!?

    I understand he’s going to spin everything, but my god; the only thing good about this offseason is that he didn’t throw any long term committments (2+ years) to scrub players to burn through the payroll

    I’m scratching my head at how Hahn and friends are planning on building this championship calibur team that he intended to assemble during the rebuild. Where are thet good players coming from? Cease, Moncada, Eloy all are cant miss players for this plan to succeed

    There goes the last bit of optimism left with this offseason. May as well not sign anyone at this point. Just go out there and lose 110+ With the Charlotte Knights filling out the roster. Maybe we’ll pick #1 overall and select a Boras client, who wont sign any team friendly extensions before FA anyway

    We’re proud of our trying, and especially proud of Reinsdorf - who opened the change purse and tried to try but couldn’t quite convince Machado our deal was better.

    So then you are holding off making an opinion about losing out on Machado......until we lose out on Harper? I have a feeling your judgement will be fairly light against the White Sox when that moment arrives if you are reserving an opinion after yesterdays disaster

    They unfortunately learned they were wrong. If they signed Harper, a lot of that would go towards an understanding of going outside their comfort zone re: opt outs, AAV, years
