    Offseason Targets

    Jack: When someone on the internet posts " This is not to say that it won’t happen", don't go off the deep-end . Wait till something actually happens. There is way more garbage than fact floating around at this time of year.

    George Springer Thread

    Red Sox are supposedly very involved

    George Springer Thread

    I am not convinced Boston, even w Springer, is a playoff team. The White Sox are. Bpstpn would have to add pitching as well and Bauer is a rumor but those are 2 big contracts. I also don't think the Cora factor is a major factor. It could sway Springer either way based on their history. I do think Boston wants a box office draw to replace Betts so they may open the checkbook for Springer. That to me may be the decisive factor. Will they spend or continue w the salary reduction they went after last year.

    Sox hire Cairo as bench coach

    Agree. I just read where Alex Cora picked his bench coach after he was re-hired.

    Soxtalk Trade Value Poll

    Wondering about Eloy. Do we think he is moving closer to being a LF or to DH. If DH is the answer, it takes away from Vaughn future ABs and makes Vaughn more likely to be dealt. I guess another wild scenario is whether you hold Vaughn based on potential and float Eloy's name who would have much higher value at this point.
  6. This is true, we don't know how TLR and JR resolved this. . Maybe TLR has seen the light at the end of the tunnel and made reparations for now his 2nd offense as well as his actions when confronted by the police. But the other side is maybe TLR will get a lawyer to sweep this under the carpet as he tried to do with the arresting officer. As I posted previously, a 76 year old driving under the influence can be a grave hazard on the road so hopefully TLR has a designated driver should it happen again. I wonder if JR still drives?

    Sox hire Ethan Katz per WSD

    Boston isn't trading Benintendi. They lost Betts and Bradley so they are already shopping for another OF( Springer was rumored as one possibilty)
  8. I would also add that a DUI for a "senior driver" is even worse since many seniors experience a decline in their reaction time while driving.
  9. Maybe the contract has not been signed yet. Sometimes the legal people take a while to finalize everything
  10. I think it will become bigger than a fan response. I can see the White Sox getting pressure from their media outlets. board members and advertisers to move on from TLR. Maybe I am naive, but think the FO is circling the wagons today trying to find the best way out of this dilemma.
  11. May already have happened, but I have to believe that Chicago/Illinois chapter of MADD will be all over this.

    Speculation on TLR coaches

    You may be right, but I wish there was an heir apparent for TLR. If Tony had any health issue, would we assume Pettini is next in line? Where has he been since being released by Houston in 2013?

    Jackie Bradley Jr

    FWIW---Bradley is rumored to be in the 2year--$16Mil range. According to Boston media, Red Sox are looking at Springer and Ozuna but have also opened up talks w Bradley as well should they fall through. Supposedly KC and Houston could be other suitors. http://www.soxtalk.com/forums/index.php?/topic/109967-jackie-bradley-jr/&page=2&_fromLogin=1

    Poll: Rate How You Feel About TLR

    As fans we won't know. Time will tell how a 76 year old manager will be able to perform physically and mentally. There is not much history to go on.
