    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    Seriously, who’s willing to ship me a 12 pack

    Would love to look up a thread from 2 years ago...1/2 of this board had Covey penciled into the rotation for 5+ years

    While I agree that end of the day winning trumps all...BUT, what the Rays front office has done with their payroll is pretty amazing. Their scouting department probably deserves most of the credit, they are the kings of finding the most value other teams can’t. Wouldn’t shock me if this is another 1 of those cases. Of course they aren’t infallible either so this could easily blow up in their faces

    Definitely a puzzling trade...but Jose Martinez definitely seems like the type of guy that will go to the Rays and have a career year for no apparent reason. I fully expect .800+ OPS with 40 bombs...for $2 mil + 2 arb years after. It’s just what the Rays do, I’ve stopped questioning them

    I thought so too. He’s nowhere near dominant, but he’s been pretty consistently solid. K’s and swing and miss % took a pretty big dip last year, not sure if there’s more to it than we realize? Seems like most teams avoided him for some reason

    Rondon to Dbacks for pretty damn cheap. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/01/diamondbacks-sign-hector-rondon.html
  7. Sure...I was struggling more with the stud part lol
  8. I’m surprised it took this long for someone to point out how crazy it is to call Mazara a young stud

    Will Harris to Nats

    Guess I’m alone that I would have been happy with this deal. Sure, maybe the 3rd year would be a waste, but I think Harris will have excess value at 2/16. He’s been consistently getting it done for a long time, I see no obvious reasons that he will suddenly fall off.

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    Sox are going to have 1 of the most exciting lineups in baseball on day 1 and are only going to add Madrigal shortly... Hahn and co actually proved us wrong. Good for them, I have no problem eating crow. A lot more left to do on the field of course.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    According to a writer from mlb.com (Mark Feinsand) Harris is weighing offers with multiple years at 6-7M per year. If we can get him at 2/14 we should have already paid the man. I don’t even have a problem at 3/21. The only obvious issue is his age, but he’s out produced that kind of contract easily. Even if he’s crap the 3rd year, 6-7 mil isn’t a significant enough amount to really hinder the team. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/01/will-harris-weighing-offers.html

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    Sure, but who’s left in the system as a pitching prospect? Of the guys we won’t be relying on to contribute in the majors this year it’s pretty much only Dunning, Stiever, and the 2019 draft class as decent SP prospects in our system. I’d prefer to not trade Stiever unless it’s in a package for a guy like Hader or someone dominant.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    Wonder what prospects we have that are actually tradeable and have any value? If we are going to trade something for a reliver given what's still on the free agent market it better be someone with at least 2 years of control + a good track record. Unless its someone with closer or at least lockdown 8th inning potential l I have a hard time giving up much more than Sheets or Gonzalez as the best prospect for a reliver, MAYBE Basabe. Should be interesting...if what Stone is alluding to is actually correct of course. Maybe there's a bad team out there that would take a chance on Fulmer for a reliever? Something like Fulmer and low level prospect is fine

    So What Happens to Zack Collins?

    Lol what a bad post. You sound like you have some weird personal agenda against Collins. In what world do you live in where it’s bad to have too many good, young, and cheap hitters? Abreu and Encarnacion are old, injuries happen, Vaughn isn’t a sure thing, exct...I can ramble off 20 good reasons to not just get rid of a mostly successful prospect that was drafted in the top 10. Just relax and let it play out, no need to rush anything unless someone really blows us away with a trade offer.

    Free Agent relief pitcher ideas besides Betances

    If either can be had on 1 year deals I’d be happy with Strop or Rondon.
