    Mas Garcias return, Thompson DFA, Rondon to Charlotte

    Although....I wouldn't be shocked if Timmy was a better backstop than Narvaez! Sad part is, I am only half joking.

    Mas Garcias return, Thompson DFA, Rondon to Charlotte

    I think he was going for worst possible defensive lineup.

    I'd keep Trayce over Pressley or even May at this point.

    The roster just became a lot more respectable.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    Martes was shitty out of the pen last season, and was shitty in AAA this season before hitting the DL on not returning. I'd take him in a deal, but I'd want him to be a secondary piece. At some point soon, the Sox are going to have a real 40 man crunch. I'd prefer getting multiple young upside prospects in the low minors if we're not getting a true blue chipper for Abreu.

    I think you'll see Fisher DHing alot.

    I assume we'll see a couple or all of Johnny Giavotella, Alex Presley and Michael Saunders released shortly.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    Right. But earlier in the post you were talking about how Shields and Abreu have similar values. That's crazy.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    Except one is an over the hill pitcher that has pitched his best baseball in 3 years and is an impending FA. The other is one of the best bats in baseball on a reasonable contract, controlled for another season, and has the ability to get a comp pick out of in 1.5 years. The gap in value is significant, despite what bWAR and fWAR say. I'm not saying that Jose is going to command 2 top 50 prospects, but if he doesn't command at least 1 and another solid flier, he just simply isn't going to be traded.

    2018 White Sox catch-all thread

    Dude, this narrative from you gets so old. The sox are rebuilding and there is no reason to sign overpriced FAs at this point to bloat the payroll. That is why the payroll is so slow - not to line the pockets of ownership.

    I've always been in the keep Eloy and Kopech down until 2019 bandwagon, but this takes it a bit too far. I want both of them up as soon as the extra year is secured in 2019, roughly 3 weeks into next season. Waiting until the Super 2 deadline would be crazy, IMO, unless both have terrible starts to 2019.

    Sox @ Cleveland, 6/20, 12:10 CT

    This has been discussed an length on this board. And then at length again. And again. And again. Time to move on.

    ESPN ranks White Sox rotation worst in baseball

    I'd say KC and Miami definitely have worse rotations.

    Projected WAR over controllable time frame X ($ value per 1 WAR) minus projected salary over controllable time frame.

    ESPN ranks White Sox rotation worst in baseball

    I am moreso surprised the White Sox even made the list, as ESPN generally forgets they even exist.
