    Clevinger wanted to be White Sox

    Again, a team full of right handed free swingers that are allergic to walks, half of which suck at defense, isn't really a recipe for sustained success. Sox did the right thing passing on Castellanos on 4 year deal. I would have rolled the dice on Castellanos or Ozuna on a 1 year deal. But locking ourselves into either one of them long term would have been a mistake. That doesn't mean Mazara doesn't suck. To be clear. But at least Mazara is cheap and can easily be non-tendered in 60 days, leaving RF wide open for a better fit, though admittedly there really aren't any on the FA market this offseason. Going to need to come via trade.

    Carson Fulmer released by Tigers

    Carson DFA'd again before even throwing a pitch for the Bucs.
  3. Well those are our 3 options, so hopefully one of them can eat up 6 or so starts the rest of the season.

    Clevinger wanted to be White Sox

    LOL! Yasmani Grandal accumulated more fWAR in the 2019 season than Saltalamacchio did in his entire career. This is an awful take.
  5. Would have been nice if we saw it last night when he watched a hanging slider right down broadway on a 3-1 count and then swung through the same pitch to end the game.

    Clevinger wanted to be White Sox

    The people ripping on Grandal crack me up. This is basically who he is. He's not that far off from his career numbers and like 4-5 days ago his slash line was basically identical to his career slash line. He's a catcher, and an elite one. He's not going to hit .300. He's an unbelievably good fit for this roster in terms of OBP and lineup balance, and is easily a top 2 catcher in the game. Stop complaining. James McCann has been really good this year when he's gotten the opportunity to play, much like he was the first half of next year. I'd love to keep him around past 2020, but chances of him wanting to resign to be in 30/70 or so timeshase with one of the best catchers in the league is doubtful. Its not that hard to figure out.

    Me thinks a lot of dudes are going to want to be White Sox this offseason. Hopefully Jerry is willing to spend a little cash.

    What should the Sox do with James McCann?

    I've mentioned that before here. I see no reason not to try. I am sure he would be better than Eloy in the OF.
  9. I think Detwiler only facing one batter had more to do with the fact that if he came back out, he would have had to face Sano as the 2nd batter of Detwiler's 2nd inning of work (3rd batter overall). With the 3 batter minimum (or finish an inning) rule, I actually think that move made sense.
  10. I know, but obviously this isn't a normal year. And isn't that only for external guys? Like if you sign a FA September 2nd, he wouldn't be eligible. But a guy already on your 40 man would be, right?
  11. He's on the 60 man player pool, so I see no reason why he wouldn't be eligible for the playoffs.

    Yolmer added to roster, Goins DFA'd

    Yolmer looked like he was using a different batting stance than in the past. A lot more upright at the plate than I remember.

    The Biggest Bummer of Day

    He better get open to it. He’s not too far from an milb deal guy next season after a non tender.

    8.31.20 GT | Sox @ Twins | 7:10PM CT

    I think Yolmer probably a better option than Mendick in all reality. Not ready to call it a day in Mendick, but Yolmer is a big leaguer.

    8.31.20 GT | Sox @ Twins | 7:10PM CT

    Mendick realizing hitting major league pitching is hard AF. Good thing we didn’t pencil him into 2B the next half decade and ship off Madrigal!!!!
  16. Lets pull a Miggy and throw him in RF.

    Sox "hold steady" at deadline

    Not trading the elite prospects and young guys in the MlB lineup was the correct decision. I would have traded the Stiever, Collins, Rutherford, Gonzalez type guys for some rental pieces, but not torn up they didn’t. I get the frustration from some fans, but this is the very beginning. Trading Vaughn or Kopech or Madrigal or Cease would have been a mistake we’d regret for years to come.

    Goins DFA'd. Literally in thread title and Fegan tweet. `

    Trade Watch Rumor

    Well fuck, he makes a ton of sense. At the very least, if the Sox don't acquire him now, hopefully whoever does non-tenders him as well because he'd immediately be the best RF fit on the FA market.

    Trade Watch Rumor

    Yeah, we could have had it him for basically nothing. Was worth the roll of the dice IMO.

    Final guesses at the Trade Deadline

    This would get me PUMPED. Probably too good to be true, but this is about my max offer. I'd do Lopez instead of Stiever if they preferred that, but I doubt they would.

    Trade Watch Rumor

    I know you do. I've just always been a Robby Ray fan. He's much better than his 2020 numbers.

    Final guesses at the Trade Deadline

    Are you going to riot and call the front office morons for prospect hoarding in season where you could go 60-0 and lose 2 out of 3 to the 8 seed and go home?
  24. ChiSox59

    Trade Watch Rumor

    Roll of the dice, sure. But he's historically been an average pitcher, and worst case you throw him in the pen or DFA him. Acquisiton price would have been cheap. Having insurance isn't a bad thing. But moot point now.

    Trade Watch Rumor

    Bummer, I would have liked Ray on the cheap.
