    Gomez: Sox, Eloy nearing $100 million extension

    I don't doubt the Sox want to secure Eloy to a long term contract since they were rumored to have offered him one last year. But let's learn from this past off-season and not believe everything we read.

    Gomez: Sox, Eloy nearing $100 million extension

    Good gawd the level of narcissism in this thread has set an all time high for SoxTalk, lol. Still entertaining to read. As for the Eloy rumor. I don't object to locking him up for many years to come.

    Place the blame where you feel it belongs

    I blame WSI.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    And as a token of good faith by the White Sox there will NOT be a diminished skills clause.

    And this comes back to points already made that you are ignoring. If Hahn kept his mouth shut fans would be b****ing about how the Sox didn't go after these guys. Too many fans took the words from the front office as well as twatter "insiders" and read into it what they wanted to hear. In fact it's still going on.

    Absolutely! And to add to that, Hahn has KW and JR over his head that can nix any deal Hahn makes but also tell Hahn to make a deal Hahn may not agree with ( I'm not gonna go there ). Hahn has been known to be a shrewd negotiator and even praised by many on this board including myself. All the sudden now he isn't so shrewd? IMHO, there's more than one chef (Hahn) in the kitchen of these negotiations.

    Same point you were making about the " water carriers". Hahn and KW work within the guidelines determined by their boss. They are employees of JR and like any other job in life, employees are paid to do what they are told. This doesn't excuse Hahn and KW for past trade and free agent signing debacles but when it comes to spending 300m+ on a free agent, JR has the final say, period. This should be obvious since JR sat down at the Harper/Boras table last November to get an idea of what they were looking for.

    Eloy opening day if he earns it

    If Eloy won't stay with the Sox then why not trade him for a haul of prospects?

    I was about to say the exact same thing.

    Outfield Moves if No Harper

    Don't do a thing. Since it's a development year and assuming Eloy solidifies himself in one of the corner OF spots, let jay/Engel keep CF warm and see what Palka has to offer. In the mean time play the waiting game to see who comes up first from the minors.
