    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    5/$90M? Really? My lord that would be so bad.

    Where is the family angle coming from? If his family think he is signing with the White Sox, he is probably signing with the White Sox.

    Can you elaborate on what was said with regard to the quick signing nugget at the end?

    Yah, I don’t want Ozuna. I could live with 3/50 or under tho.

    3/60M is perfectly fine but anything over $18M is crazy? I don’t follow.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Kinda, but doesn’t hurt to see what’s out there.

    I mean Bruce is a complete dipshit so I don’t take his word at any more value than a Frank Castillo I hadn’t heard until a few minutes ago.

    Definitely think this is most likely a BS report. But if it’s true, I will reserve judgement until I see the years and dollars. Generally speaking, don’t like the Ozuna fit at all.

    What are you basing #1 on? A stupid gold glove he got a few years back? Ozuna is a well below average fielder, and his arm is shot.

    Who TF is Frank Castillo?

    A Realistic Offseason

    Trade Stiever + Sheets + Rutherford/Basabe to Dbacks for Robbie Ray and David Peralta. Sign Ryu 3/$63 Sign Blake Trenien 2/$16M Sign Kevin Pillar 2/$12M Sign Derek Dietrich 1/$3M OD payroll: ~$135M Lineup by mid May: Robert CF, Moncada 3B, Abreu 1B, Grandal C/DH, Eloy LF, Anderson SS, Peralta RF, Collins/McCann DH/C, Madrigal 2B BN: Collins/McCann, Leury, Dietrich, Pillar Pillar fills in CF until Robert arrives mid May, Dietrich 2B until Madrigal arrives mid May. Leury fills in both spots occasionally. I think this is about as good and realistic as we can hope for. Opens RF up in 2021 for Betts/Springer/Brantley/Joc.

    This is about my max for both Ozuna and Castellanos. But it’s at least a year and at least $20M short IMO. At 3/$45M, I could live with their very obvious shortcomings, and hopefully they’d remain tradable.

    At least if Calhoun is a bust, he provides plus defense, costs like $6-8M, and is a free agent again in 10 months. If Castellanos or Ozuna are busts, they quickly become bad contracts, clog up our OF defense long term, and the Sox have minimal ability to play them at DH long term with Abreu and Vaughn. I would prefer Calhoun at 1/$8M to either of those guys on 4/$65M+ deals, which both are very likely to beat.

    Sox Claim Tayron Guerrero

    The next Vieira. Worth a shot, he very well may not even make it thru the offseason.

    Trade Market for Starting Pitchers...

    Julio Urias - tho he would cost way more than I'd want to pay

    Lol, what? You're complaining about K:BB ratio and then suggest Santana. Santana is an awful fit for RF, and terrible defender.

    That's a big time offer for Marte.
  19. I'd love for the Twins to fork over $100M to Bumgarner.

    Thank you, Sir.

    There is a more detailed post on the topic I did a few months back.

    Hahn has said it multiple times - that's all I can tell you. The reasons would be that he is going to be on an innings limit in 2020 and starting him in AAA with kid gloves would mean that he wouldn't have to be shut down in August. And two - if he spends a couple months in AAA, Sox get a year of control back. Basically, if he breaks camp with the Sox, he gets shut down in August and you lose a year of control. If you start him in AAA, you lose maybe 25-30 innings in 2020 when he's pitching in the minors, but you get the year of control back, AND he doesn't need to get shut down in August when potentially the Sox are battling for a WC spot.

    Its out there. He said it in the long podcast/ Q&A thing he did with Garfein a couple months ago. Also has said it a few times in interviews since then. I am not just making it up, but I am also not going to go dig out the quote for you. @Chicago White Sox back me up here.
  24. He wasn't a FA. It was an extension. That hampered their ability to spend money elsewhere for years and years and years.
  25. I am aware of all of this. How'd those Santana, Hughes and Nolasko (not Nicasio) contracts work out? The Twins are a super cheap org. Unfortunately they are now run by two dudes who absolutely know what they're doing, but they're going to have serious financial restraints, and their window is now.
