    Convince Me: Marcus Stroman

    Keuchel deal or less I like him. anything more than 3/55 or so and I’d pass.

    Joc is a fine 1 year stop gap if we get into like Feb and couldn’t do better. Joc being anything more than a fallback option would be very disappointing. We have one major hole in the future lineup and no one knocking at the door to take it anytime soon. Make a deal for a real RF.

    Jake Burger Thread

    I thought we heard he'd be back in game action by June 1. Any updates?

    They're just my estimates. I didn't know we couldn't pontificate until a manager was hired. Noted.

    Offseason Targets

    I think it’ll be 60% Jose 1B and 40% Vaughn (once he arrives in late April). Other DHs. In 22, 70% Vaughn 1B and 30% Jose. Then its Vaughn’s position. By then, Eloy will be the DH.

    Should be, yes.

    RF Thread

    OF defense would be atrocious, but Eddie Rosario is probably a coin flip to get non tendered in MN. Not even sure if he could even fake RF, but he could be an option. I think we’ll see a fair share of somewhat surprising non tenders this offseason.

    Nimmo remains a fantastic option IMO.

    If Bauer isn't a #1, there are only a handful of #1 in the whole game. Everyone's definition of a #1 is different. Is it a true shut down ace? Is it a team's best starter? Is it a top 15 SP in each league? Top 30 in the game? Doesn't really matter, but Bauer is really really good. He's a "#1" by all definitions above, but perhaps not one of the best 3-5 SP in the game.

    In an ideal world, we acquire our RF for the next half decade plus this offseason. We have no one in the minors who projects to take that role during this window of contention. I want SP too, and you can never have enough. But I feel like we project pretty solid there into the future that adding one mid rotation starter to a multi year deal and a back end guy on a 1 year deal is plenty if coupled with a legit RF acquisition.

    I’ll take the under. By a lot.

    IMO, signing Stroman to a 3/$50M and Q to 1/$8M type deal is so so so so much better than trading our valuable assets for SP. Then we can dangle Cease/Steiver/and some lesser assets for a good RF that is a good fit. Burnes would likely take 1 of Vaughn/Eloy/Kopech, plus one (except for maybe Eloy by himself) of Dunning/Madrigal/Cease. No thanks to any combination of that.

    It’s Stroman. And I agree. I was responding to post about trading several assets for Lance Lynn. Burnes is great. But I’m not trading Eloy to get him as has been discussed here.

    Let me get his number. Must be good.

    Why are we trading assets for 1 year if Lynn when we can just sign a guy like Stroman to a likely reasonable contact.
  17. ChiSox59

    Offseason Targets

    I don't think we even need to overcomplicate the SP situation. Go sign Q to $8-10M 1 year deal for the 5th SP. I am sure he'd love to return to the familiarity of the Sox, and he didn't do himself any favors this past season heading into FA. Then try to get a mid to TOR starter. Bauer would be great obviously, but everyone is going to want him. Stroman is the guy I want. Can probably get him for 3/$50M or so. Then who knows what kind of impact CV has on the market. Could perhaps get those guys even cheaper. Then just go find a suitable RF via trade and you're in business.
  18. Yep, I would have cut the cord in September. But understood not really doing so prior.
  19. You don't send you catcher for the next 3 seasons to the DH role fulltime for a dude that was hitting .227 with a .300 OBP for the final month. But yes, McCann and Grandal both should have been in the lineup more often. I somewhat understood the reluctance to give up on EE - he is a notoriously slow starter. BUt it was pretty evident there was nothing left in the tank.

    Managerial Candidates List

    I don't want Larussa, primarily due to his age. I'd prefer someone younger. Is that why everyone seems to think this is so horrible? Or is there another reason? FWIW - Larussa goes against alot of what Hahn said yesterday, so I'd be really surprised if Boob was right about this one. He frankly rarely is when it comes to the Sox.

    I assume Hinch isn't free to sign until after the WS is completed?
  22. Thanks for clarifying. Figured it was something stupid.
  23. No context. Stand alone tweets within a minute or two of each other. Again...it’s probably nothing.
  24. https://www.youtube.com/embed/egEOjdMF8m0 watch the presser. Worth every minute.
  25. No idea what it’s referencing. Likely nothing important. Just sharing.
