    Abreu wants to stay long term

    Not sure Jose is going to get $15M AAV on the FA market next off season. I'd try like 4/$50 including this year.
  2. Seems like an awful deal for the Sox. If it gets up to $400M, its better to just say no.

    Alternate Plan for a $150 Million Payroll

    If the White Sox aren't willing to increase their payroll to $150M and beyond in the next couple seasons, the whole rebuild was worthless.

    White Sox trying to trade Avi Garcia?

    Sounds like the Sox were going to get him to play some OF in winter ball, so I think that is the plan.

    White Sox trying to trade Avi Garcia?

    Rondon just isn't a 3B, and they weren't going to take away everyday at bats from Moncada or Anderson to get him in the lineup.

    White Sox trying to trade Avi Garcia?

    Yes, obviously. I was just making the point that you may a well try to get something for an asset you're just going to dump in a couple weeks.

    White Sox trying to trade Avi Garcia?

    There is really no reason at all to not see if you can get something for Avi if there is any possibility of non-tendering him (which there should be).

    2018-9 MLB off season free agency thread

    Not only a loss of pick, but catcher isn't really the position the sox should be spending big dollars. They already have 2 major league catchers on the roster, and another two interesting prospects that are pretty close. Much bigger holes to fill.
  10. If you take out Avi's unsustainably high BABIP-fueled 2017, he has been a pretty terrible player. He's a low OBP corner outfield that sucks defensively. He isn't woth the $8-10M he will would get in arb. He's probably looking at 1 year deal around $5M with someone else if the Sox non-tender him, and he may very well outperform that contact. But his time with the Sox is likely over. Its time to move on.

    This is cute.
  12. Avi is a non-tender candidate because he has one year of control left at a price that is higher than what he brings to the table. He'd be a nontender candidate regardless of his injury.

    White sox active in starting pitching market

    Sounds like Ryu is going to take the qualifying offer.
  14. If I’m the Astros I’m probably not doing that deal right now. You could probably get Avi for less money and with no prospect return in 45 days.
