    Corey Kluber to Yanks per Passan

    Yeah I could see the Yankees going after Kluber. They have been awfully quiet this offseason. And sooner or later they have to address their starting pitching

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    I bet Cespedes is at Winston-Salem this year. High A ball. The sox, well everybody, will watch to see how that goes. It's been a while since he's played competitively. So may take some time.
  3. I know. This bullpen is so good. And don't forget about Foster. I know he choked against Oakland. But he was devastating too. Same arm angle but 2 different pitches. And the second one the ball would just drop out on the hitters. Nasty! Hitters had no idea how to pick that up
  4. I would like to welcome Liam Hendriks to a long tradition of closers on the south side! In my lifetime we've had Farmer, Thigpen, Hernandez, Foulke, and of course Jenks. Also I shouldn't forget Colome. He was a big part of last years playoff team. There have been others, of course. But these are the ones that have stood out to me. Either had personal success or were on some very successful teams.
  5. And They're probably going to have a starter in that bullpen too. ReLo. Can never have enough arms!

    Foodies: Sox/Giolito discussing an extension?????

    And a very popular trade chip
  7. I saw that its a record salary per yr for a reliever
  8. Very creative. Never seen anything like this.

    So if the sox sign Hendricks that's 2 top 10 relievers. Plus as someone mentioned Crochet. Interesting that they list Bummer but no mention of Colome.

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    I agree. But the creative incentive base contracts didn't work for Machado. But if it's spring training and Bauer is still looking, then yes maybe that will work

    I never believed Day's reports. But glad for the confirmation from cheesy beef!

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    I really don't understand why the Padres would do this. It makes no financial sense. They already have him cheap and under control for 5 more years. Unless the 320 mill is a exaggeration. Robert's is 88 mill with the options. Acuna's is 100 mill. Maybe the real offer is closer to 120 million?

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    I agree. Plus the money you save by making this trade and not signing a Quintana or someone else you've lost by having to go sign a FA 2nd baseman. Don't get me wrong I like Gonzales. And some of these others we're rumored to be attached to. And I like them more then the FA (except Bauer ) that are left. But if this is about cost savings and we have to trade another starter (Madrigal). Then I don't see the savings.

    Sox to attend Kluber session

    Well if they are going to kick the tires on Kluber - which I like - then kick the tires on Paxton too!

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    is Steve just being polite or does he think there's genuinely a chance? I mean does he know something?

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    I absolutely would love this! In fact, was quietly thinking this. But right now knowing this team the funds are not there. However That being said, if this carries on into Feb/March I could see the whitesox pivot to Bauer.
  18. Well a no doubter now. Tim Anderson is the best ss in the American league central.

    I think it will be close to that. At least 4/50. My hope is that at least 3 of those 4 years are good. But that's the gamble I guess. As far as Hand goes, the Sox lit him up last year to over a 7 ERA. He definitely makes me nervous.

    He's a poster here and a fantastic source for Bears news.

    You know Katz seems to have big plans for Lopez this season. I can't count on him as a starter. more as a bullpen piece for me.

    Joe Musgrove Thread

    Wow this argument is still going on?!? I'm starting to forget what this thread is even about. That's right Musgrove. So are we trading for him?

    To be honest, that budget is a little higher than I thought it would be. Also, one of the food guys or NSC tweeted that TLR is the most important executive for the Sox. And Tucker Barnhart must be who Tony wants for backup catcher.

    Backup Catcher targets

    I like this name! Not too far removed from being a everyday starter. Still only 29. I don't know about the defensive side of his game though. Don't know the years of control either. I got to think after this year a FA? Could be wrong.
