    Rosenthal: Could Harper be headed to the southside

    Honestly, he would be doing a disservice to his client to play it any other way.

    Rosenthal: Could Harper be headed to the southside

    Keep as many players at the table as possible. The more suitors (real or perceived) the more it benefits them. Boras is playing a game. The next meaningful thing Boras says will be when he announces who he will finally sign with.

    White Sox acquire Ivan Nova

    Again, not advocating bringing him back in any way. Just a comment on the magnitude of the Nova signing ...

    White Sox acquire Ivan Nova

    He can bridge the gap and if there has been a more consistent innings-eater than BGJ over the past 20y then I'd like to know who they are. I agree at age 36 he is more likely to get injured but sometimes injuries are a crapshoot too.

    That was never the point. I'm not arguing for bringing back Shields. I'm just afraid we got Shields-lite for 9MM.

    Bringing back BGJ would have as well.

    White Sox acquire Ivan Nova

    I did. Nova is better in some regards … BB/9, ERA and FIP, although he didn't exactly set the world on fire in those categories either. I'm no BGJ fan but this signing strikes me as thoroughly unremarkable. If the Sox had brought Shields back for 9MM, I think there would be pitchforks in the streets on the south side.

    ERA+, WHIP, H/9, HR/9 and K/9 all equivalent to or worse than James Shields in 2018.

    But these numbers are James Shields-esque.

    Bryce Harper Updates

    I always thought that Machado's desire to play SS was a marketing tool ... to increase his next contract. Once he signs, would he really still insist on playing SS? Has he indicated such? Tim Anderson's other greatest strength is his arm. I think he has plenty of arm to play 3B.

    Unless Madrigal is knocking on the door, I'm not sure why you want to move Moncada off 2nd and shuffle the whole infield like that. Moving Anderson to 3rd seems like a more straightforward approach.

    Bryce Harper Updates

    I gather that most people would be happy with Machado at 3rd and Anderson at SS. If Machado absolutely must play SS, is there a reason Anderson couldn't play 3rd?

    Maddon to spend more time on coaching this year

    Joe Maddon ... the man, the myth, the legend. The media rock star spending less time in front of the fawning Chicago media? Ok, Joe ... but try not to suck.

    White Sox trying to trade Avi Garcia?

    Players on arbitration contracts who are cut on or before the 16th day of Spring Training are owed 30 days' termination pay (based on the prorated version of his agreed-upon arbitration salary). A player cut between the 16th day and the end of Spring Training is owed 45 days' termination pay (based on the prorated version of his agreed-upon arbitration salary). The arbitration salary becomes guaranteed if the player is on the 25-man roster when the season begins. Non guaranteed contract
