    Kopech sitting out 2020

    It’s in everyone’s best interest for Kopech or someone from his camp to put out a statement. It’s unfair for others to have to comment on his behalf; and without anything official you allow someone like Cooper an opportunity to give his opinion and ignite the rumor mill. He can thank the fans and teammates for the concern, suggest he’s sitting out due to personal reasons (without having to fully divulge the info), and he’ll be ready for the 2021 season. Everyone’s happy, especially the meatheads, and we move on. Then he can seek whatever assistance he needs

    KW says "no Puig"

    I’d rather watch Mazara struggle for 500+ ABs then accept whatever minimal value we’ll get from Puig. Why not let Mazara succeed or fail on his own, without distractions and the inconsistent ABs that would come with signing Puig? Does anyone really believe he will accept being a backup OF for an entire season? Once Mazara struggles for a prolonged period, Ricky will eventually side with the seasoned veteran. Just like Ozzie, you don’t give your manager tools that will be misused.

    I believe I read this comment all across Soxtalk last offseason, too. How exactly do we plan on going “all in” ? With the weak FA market? By trading whatever is left from the minors? It sounds like you’re trying to reassure yourself, and maybe a few others, this was all part of the plan.

    Matt Lisle speaks out

    It’s never going to change, until you know who dies. Even then, the successor/benefactor/whomever may operate the organization top to bottom the same; but atleast then there’s a possibility of change.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    They definitely need a #3 SP to move along the narrative, and it sure as hell won’t be from free agency. I feel Vaughn and Madrigal are apart of a trade proposal. There’s no one else (aside from Robert) that I could imagine them including to entice someone to give up a cost controlled, young SP with #3 potential.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    I’ll screenshot this when the sentiment in 2021 becomes, “Well guys it’s going to take a few years for everything to come together. 2022 is the time you can start evaluating the rebuild”
  7. Do we have another source aside from Nightengale about the White Sox offer? I’ve read a lot of comments mentioning we beat out Philadelphia with a higher bid, but I’m wondering if that’s Sox Math where its more like $100 mil guaranteed and the $120 is reached through team friendly options and unobtainable performance incentives.
  8. Exactly, and that’s why I’d rather extend Wheeler a sixth season and suffer through it in 2026 (likely at the end of our competitive window) than sit here and wait for......who exactky? There are no good options
  9. He doesn’t sound very confident. Honestly, I dont either. The White Sox don’t win bidding wars. They have a set price Jerry feels comfortable with, and will not go beyond it. We all know how this goes. White Sox lose out, news is released that their offer had some goofy deferred payment or performance related stipulation that didn’t guarantee as much money. Honestly, don’t even fool the fanbase with Cole and Strasburg if you miss out on Wheeler.

    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.

    2/27 vs Reds, 2pm, whitesox.com

    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

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

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

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Yeah we better start getting some great production from the minors

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    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.
