    A Realistic Offseason

    I wonder what kind of deal we could get out of the Rockies if we took on some of their $ problems? I would love a chance at 1 of their cheap young pitchers and getting them away from Coors. We trade for Daniel Murphy and Ian Desmond and they include Freeland/Marquez/Hoffman + some cash to cover some of Desmond. I don’t think we’d have to give up much and Murphy could actually be a useful part time left handed DH/1B for us.

    Wheeler- 4 years 84 Ozuna- 3 years 50 Moustakas- 2 years 30 McHugh- 3 years 19 Roark- 1 year 9 That’s about a 135 million payroll and should be pretty easy to pull off in terms of realistic...wheeler being the only one that may be hard to reel in, Odorizzi would be a replacement for cheaper.

    Im aware it makes me a terrible person...but I’m actually kinda looking forward to the meltdowns on this board when our off season looks nothing like this. Expectations are completely out of control

    Or how about you stop being a whiny b**** and monitoring others posts? ive posted several off seasons with the Sox having big splash signings. This 1 I chose to do based on recent evidence of Sox free agent signings. Sorry if that triggered you

    Not sure the best way to share these? If there is 1... I did a cynical 1 with how I feel the FO could easily end up screwing this up and ended up with a 105.4 payroll...Jerry is happy already. Tendered: Colome, McCann, Garcia, Rodon, and Marshall Resigned: Jose-Although I lowered the salary a touch, Jose should be thrilled with 2/28 Free Agent Hitters: Puig, Kendrick(raised the $), Jason Castro Free Agent Pitchers: Odorizzi, Roark, McHugh, Brach It’s gross but I really have a feeling Puig is going to be our “prized” hitter in free agency. And the front office will market him like it was a great signing and continue to treat us like idiots. And likewise, Odorizzi will be the best SP left we can sign.

    Ya but now imagine how that conversation would go... -Option 1= opt out and you get to choose where you play next -Option 2= opt in and we’ll choose your team by trading you for the best deal I think he’ll choose option 1. Not to mention, there’s a pretty good chance he’ll get paid more in free agency

    Just a matter of downloading the “Sheets” app, I was trying to do it in the browser. Works great in the app, Thanks again.

    Appreciate this thanks. Will look into further when I get home. I can see it on mobile but can’t actually click on anything.

    Do you think Collins is going to be able to catch significant innings? If so then obviously keep him, but I just don’t think that’s happening at this point.

    You could be correct, I’m not claiming to have any inside knowledge or anything...but that sounds way light to me. 2 years 24M for a 3+ WAR OF’er can be had without a top 100 prospect?

    What do you think it would take to get Marte?

    I get why people will overrate Lopez and Collins, but I say trade them while they have value...because I don’t think they’ll have much in 2 years

    Trade: Zack Collins, Reynaldo Lopez, Dane Dunning, and Steele Walker for Starling Marte and Kyle Crick Sign: JDM, Wheeler, Gio Gonzalez , Jason Castro, and Chris Martin

    I’d love to know what about the White Sox history makes people think that they are going to hand out the largest contract ever to a pitcher...it’s really not even a discussion worth having. I’ll bet there won’t even be so much as a meeting
  15. Just listening to a recent Barry Zito interview on PMT and when asked who the funniest teammate he’s ever played with...of all people he singled out Menechino and then went on to talk about what an amazing teammate and locker room presence he was.
