    I want Semien but we have a bigger need

    Do the Sox have a starting 2B, no. Is the offseason over, also no. 2B is much easier to fill IMO than the other needs. We'd all love a Semien or Nick Madrigal 2.0, but I'm not sweating 2B until the other, more pressing needs are filled.

    Exactly. If you are concerned about defense, a Vaughn/Sheets RF should be unacceptable. A defense first 2B should not be too hard to come by or too expensive. Sox need a starting 2B but it is about third on my list of priorities behind a RF w/ pop and a quality starting pitcher.

    Eloy in LF and Vaughn/Sheets in RF would be one of the worst OF defenses in the majors. They might give up as many runs as they produce. And banking on Engel playing regularly after last season seems unwise. Sox can and should do better in RF.

    2021-22 NBA Thread

    That foul was baffling and one of the most egregious phantom fouls I have ever seen. How the call stood after review is beyond comprehension.

    2021-22 NBA Thread

    Billy Donovan needs to look in the mirror. I’m no expert at Xs & Os, but I still don’t see any semblance of an offensive system being run. Ball & player movement get stagnant, picks but no rolls, bad dumb shots, overpassing leading to worse shots, and far too much reliance on isolation. The lack of size and reliable 3 point shooting is catching up as well. I get that we are only a month into the season, but I would hope we would start to see the offense click more but the past two games were atrocious.

    White Sox - Interested in Robbie Ray

    A frontline starter like Robbie Ray would be very welcome. Can we get an actual mention of Sox interest *in* Ray there Bob?

    MLB 2021-2 off season thread

    If I remember correctly they made a pitch to Harper at the Advocate Center early in FA, but I don't recall if they ever made a serious offer. And after Machado signed there was some word of a pivot to Harper but it always felt way too late.

    Sox give no qualifying offers

    This is where I am too. The announcement stung a little as I love Rodon, but I understand it too. I’m choosing to be rational until I see how things play out.

    Sox give no qualifying offers

    I’m not endorsing the training staff or the decision not offer the QO. They obviously know more than any of us do. I think Rodon is worth the risk but I’m not going to be upset by the decision. If they sign no starters or give out bad money I will be critical but I will reserve judgement until then.
