    It should be the best period of young talent, considering they turned almost every decent player they had into prospects.

    And but for a two spells of FO delusion, you could  add Tatis, Semien, Phegley, Semien and Bassitt, all of whom would be on the major league roster.  Then you would also have to subtract Burdi.


    might as well throw in Gio Gonzalez into that mix as well.

    Uhhhh have you noticed the date that this thread and most of the posts started?

    On the previous page, it literally jumps from "March 1" to "5 hours ago" (earlier today almost 3 months later).

    good point. LOL

  3. i sometimes HATE coming to this board and read people talk shit about our guys. Giolito has found something positive in his pitching, he's having success with it, so i just don't understand why Sox fans can't be happy about it and support what he's accomplished since coming back from the hamstring injury. 


    i understand how difficult it is to be a Sox fan, but a lot of you SERIOUSLY need therapy. 😂

    I think if you sign Keuchel to a 3 year deal, you're waving goodbye to Rodon. I'm fine with that. He's too unreliable. 

    agreed. i just don't think he's THE ace we need to anchor this pitching staff for the future. and if he's not then, then he's expendable imo. 

  5. with Rodon going down, for what i'm guessing is the rest of the season, does it make sense at this point for the the Sox to just add a veteran to the rotation like Keuchel after the June draft? i feel like we're just treading water again with all of these injuries.

    Player Position Age
    Dallas Keuchel SP 31
    Gio Gonzalez SP 33
    Wade Miley SP 32
    Clay Buchholz SP 34
    Jeremy Hellickson SP 31
    Ervin Santana SP  


    Machado rumors aside...we really should consider bringing in one of these guys to bridge the gap


    bring Gio back already. please and thank you.

    MM is not turning down $200M+ to take a 1 year deal.  I promise you.  

    if the "market" (or lack thereof) this year dictates it, why not? he'll still get a big contract this season and still be worth over $200M next season and may have more suitors next season.

    I think this only has to do with the Sox not caving in to Lozano's demands.  The Sox seem more than willing to wait this out.  No doubt Lozano is doing everything he can to draw in other bidders or to scare the Sox into increasing their offer.  It doesn't seem like he's succeeding in either, unless you buy the legitimacy of the "mystery team".  But it seems to me that mystery teams only show up when actual teams can't be found.

    Manny isn't sitting out 2019, and he's not signing a short term deal.  IMO, the longer this goes on, the better the Sox position.  At some point, Lozano is going to have to re-engage the Sox on their current offer.

    OR the more likely MM signs a 1-year deal with someone and tries his hand at the market next season in hopes that it's better.

    My overall problem with Benetti & Stone is the age difference and how that gap plays out in the booth.  

    Stone is a little more than twice as old as Benetti, and had  finished his MLB pitching career and was already in the Cubs’ booth with Harry Caray before Benetti was born.  So they are hardly peers in one sense.  

    Yet Benetti engages and often needles Stone in a way you might expect two old college roommates would at Benetti’s current age. It seems awkward at many points in any given broadcast when the 71 year-old Stone tries to play off that approach.  

    I like the fact that the two genuinely seem to enjoy one another’s company in the booth.  I just wish they could develop a better dynamic between them that was more age appropriate to both.

    I'm not a big fan either. He's okay but he's not nearly as funny as he thinks he is.

    i think he has a great baseball voice, he just needs to temper some of the b.s. about his toys and giveaways and sometimes concede the arguments he tends to get into with Stoney.

    I'm fairly sure we do both

    god i hope so. because i find it EXTREMELY difficult to believe the Sox only offered $175M and someone out there should be held responsible for posting these lies.

    They're shaming the whole damn league for being cheap

    or maybe the White Sox are setting a new standard and starting a new trend to ensure that these crazy contracts stop getting so high.
