    White Sox News FA / Rumors / News

    QUOTE (raBBit @ Dec 5, 2016 -> 11:17 AM) Hahn wanted to rebuild before 2013. He wanted to sell off Samardzija in 2015 and he wanted to trade off guys in July. You'll complain all day and everyday about the Sox but you're not actually saying anything of substance. Right now, we're barely in the offseason. The CBA just signed into agreement on Thursday. The Winter Meetings started a less than a handful of hours ago. Would you at least wait until January before your continue your routine? I am not sure how you're not annoyed by yourself parroting the same stuff over and over again. Doesn't it get old? Nobody around here is happy with the way things have gone. Nobody is arguing they've gone well. If you have gripes, say it specifically. Your constant general complaining about what "many said" or "everyone thought" is beyond trite at this point. It's a shame because unlike others who do something of the same, you are capable of being a great contributor to the forum. Instead, you choose to fear monger and overreact to the first few hours of inactivity. Post of the year!!!!
  2. QUOTE (Ro Da Don @ Dec 5, 2016 -> 11:13 AM) For me, swap in Ross and Cole for Lopez and Fedde. Lopez has a scary delivery and Fedde is already a TJS guy. You can't get back 2 TJS guys in Giolito and Fedde as part of a Sale trade, IMHO. Lots of people these days saying that post TJS guys are actually safer, and their elbows stronger. I don't disagree with what you're saying - but its not that cut and dry any more. Cole and Ross and intriguing, for sure, but we'd only have 4 or 5 years of control on Ross.
  3. QUOTE (SoxPride18 @ Dec 5, 2016 -> 11:05 AM) Giolito, Robles, Fedde, Lopez, Severino and Kieboom for Sale and Robertson work? I mention Robertson because it looks like the Nats are gonna lose Melancon to the Giants and would be in need of a closer. Not a bad package by any means, and may end up being the best we can get, but just wish it was mainly position players. I have faith in the Sox developing pitching...we need bats!
  4. Need one of them for a deal. Really have no issues with any of them - my list would probably be Benintendi, Bregman, Moncada, Urias, Turner, Swanson. But it is the other players involved that will make or break this trade.

    Brett Lawrie Settles

    QUOTE (Quinarvy @ Dec 4, 2016 -> 05:28 PM) Isn't Saladino questionable to start the year with his back? Read an article last week that made it seem like he is healthy and will be ready for ST.

    Rich hill signs with Dodgers

    QUOTE (Eminor3rd @ Dec 3, 2016 -> 09:37 PM) I would think. But assuming we do end up moving Sale, it could be a blessing in disguise. LA's best prospects are pitchers, and Friedman is there -- the stingiest of the stingy when it comes to prospects, and who seems to never "lose" a trade of this type. To be fair, there haven't been many trades involving a guy with Sales value. That said, can't see a deal withour Urias, and dount Friedman is willing to deal him.

    Rich hill signs with Dodgers

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Dec 3, 2016 -> 08:22 PM) Good luck next season if they don't trade Sale while essentially sitting out the entire offseason. They won't be able to give away tickets to watch Garcia get another 600 at-bats at DH. Patience, brah.

    Rich hill signs with Dodgers

    So they have: Kershaw Ryu Kazmir Maeda Hill Urias De Leon McCarthy And others. Crazy. Obviously a lot of injury question marks there but still a lot of options.

    Winter Meetings Predictions Thread

    QUOTE (iWin4Ron @ Dec 3, 2016 -> 02:43 PM) I like these ideas, I think we can get more for Abreu tho. Also, in a wishful perfect world, Eaton to NAT for a loaded package Agreed - that Abreu to BOS package was garbage. No point in trading Jose for that.

    QUOTE (GreenSox @ Dec 2, 2016 -> 06:16 PM) This is worse than re-signing Avi. Does Rick Hahn actually think Lawrie's a good player? Lol, clueless comment.

    PIT/NATs in talks for McCutchen

    QUOTE (Quinarvy @ Dec 2, 2016 -> 03:02 PM) Who says no? Nats get: Eaton and Jennings Sox get: Giolito, Robles, Fedde, Reetz Edit: I'm saying the Nats say no Probably the Nats, but I'd do that deal. Would like Severino as the final piece.

    White Sox to Move Eaton?

    QUOTE (NCsoxfan @ Dec 2, 2016 -> 02:18 PM) I guess the thing about Eaton to Washington is that they're looking for a CF. Could Eaton do that, or is he better in RF? He can, but he is definitely a much better RF.

    White Sox to Move Eaton?

    QUOTE (steveno89 @ Dec 2, 2016 -> 11:39 AM) Jesus those are gigantic packages haha. Sale is an amazing talent, but those packages are what would get a GM fired. Adam Eaton is my favorite player on the Sox, but if you can get Giolito, Robles plus another interesting piece or two, it'd be hard not to do. Then turn around and trade Sale to the Astros. It's intriguing for sure - but Giolito and Robles are necessary.

    This. Morosi is an idiot.

    PIT/NATs in talks for McCutchen

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Dec 1, 2016 -> 08:20 PM) That was the appropriate response. It would be a terrible move for the White Sox. But if people want to insist they're going to compete right now, then at least look at what it would really take. If that's what PIttsburgh can get for a washed up McCutchen, the Sox are in some serious business here.

    PIT/NATs in talks for McCutchen

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Dec 1, 2016 -> 08:17 PM) I bet Collins + Fulmer + Adams + Burdi puts you in the ballpark. If they're talking about Robles he's a top 10 guy and the White Sox have nothing close to that, but if you piled up 2 top 100 guys plus another first round pick from last year you at least aren't laughably far away. Nats could probably still beat that. I just puked in my mouth.

    White Sox Not Willing to Trade with Cubs

    QUOTE (WhiteSoxLifer @ Nov 30, 2016 -> 04:44 PM) From #whitesox GM Rick Hahn: https://t.co/uh3lmj2mTD https://twitter.com/CST_soxvan/status/804092468778192909 Makes a lot of the comments in here pretty funny....

    Milwaukee signs Eric Thames

    QUOTE (IowaSoxFan @ Nov 29, 2016 -> 11:10 AM) Carter would be a decent pickup for this team if they are rebuilding, sign him on a short term deal and flip for a prospect at the deadline for a team that needs some RH power. Agreed.

    Milwaukee signs Eric Thames

    QUOTE (ChiSoxFanMike @ Nov 29, 2016 -> 11:08 AM) His K and BB numbers were pretty good in Korea, although that league is much easier to hit in. I still wish the Sox would've taken a chance on him though. He's the exact type of player that would be great in a rebuild. Is it? I'd rather give Liriano, Avi or Coats those ABs if we're going full rebuild (doubt that'll happen).
  21. I'd like it more if he wasn't going to miss all of next season, but sure, why not?

    White Sox waiting for bigger offers on Sale

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Nov 28, 2016 -> 02:23 PM) MLB Trade Rumors ‏@mlbtraderumors 2h2 hours ago Twins Hire Torii Hunter, Michael Cuddyer, LaTroy Hawkins As Special Assistants http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/11/twins-hire-torii-hunter-michael-cuddyer-latroy-hawkins-as-special-assistants.html …://http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/...sistants.html …://http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/...sistants.html … Good. I've said it before and I will say it again, Sox hold the chips here. Get what you want or don't trade him. I don't want some garbage deal that doesn't include multiple headliners. The Sox need to win this trade massively - the future of the franchise relies on it.

    SOURCE: 2 horse race between Dodgers and Astros

    QUOTE (Soxnfins @ Nov 23, 2016 -> 06:18 PM) Screw it, if they want to rebuild on the fly and not do a total overhaul, why not try for Bregman AND Springer, maybe someone like Daz Cameron as a third piece.... I'd be perfectly ok with that deal. May not live up to people's standards or expectations, but I'd be very excited to watch the Sox next year. I have a feeling if we deal with HOU, we end up with Springer. Been saying it all along and just have a gut feeling. There were rumors from connected insiders that the Astros offered a Springer based package for Same in July, which the Sox obviously passed on. Doubt a few months will change their mind. Bregman is the guy, though I am intrigued by your idea of both.

    Anthony Ranaundo signs in Korea

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Nov 22, 2016 -> 11:16 PM) When your depth doesn't get picked up by anyone in the big leagues and winds up in korea, you don't actually have depth. Again, I said not really a loss. The dudes close to doubling his salary, can you really blame him? And every other team didn't have the chance to get him, Sox released him so he could pursue this opportunity. It's not like he cleared waivers beforehand.

    Anthony Ranaundo signs in Korea

    QUOTE (Lip Man 1 @ Nov 22, 2016 -> 09:43 PM) Good. Don't want him anywhere near the organization. Mark Lol, such a typical comment from you. Ranaudo is nothing special, this isn't really a loss, but you continue to fail to recognize that depth is your friend.
