  1. Not a good deal for the Sox, especially with an opt out after year three At what point should the Sox draw the line? I haven't seen concrete answers about how much is too much? Beyond 350-375 over 10 years would get very hesitant for me
  2. Of course, but when is blatantly paying over market a good idea for a franchise? These contracts could become an albatross for the franchise that signs them. I'd almost consider a high dollar value, shorter term deal to dangle? 5/200 or a 4/160? You get the players throughout their prime, and do not pay for declining years
  3. I just hope the fanbase doesn't mistake interest for what might actually happen. Machado/Harper might just not want to sign with the White Sox?
  4. I really hope the fanbase keeps expectations in check. Do I believe the front office will try hard for a Machado/Harper? Of course, but chances of signing either are still pretty low.
  5. I'd rather talk trades as well. Big game hunting in free agency is a process that will likely drag out well into December at a minimum.

    White Sox trying to trade Avi Garcia?

    Strong chance Avi gets non-tendered I believe

    Creative Trades

    Reds say no. Senzel is in the upper echelon level of prospects.

    White Sox Bryce Harper FA pitch spoiler?

    From a marketing standpoint, signing Bryce Harper does put you back on the map so to speak.

    Cubs Open to Trading Kris Bryant

    What he said is being blown out of proportion. Bryant is not getting dealt. Theo Epstein, the head of baseball operations, was asked earlier this week at the GM meetings about the availability of Bryant and first baseman Anthony Rizzo in trades. "We've never operated with untouchables," he said. "It sends the wrong message. Given what we're trying to accomplish, it would be virtually impossible to envision the deal that would make sense to move them. I just don't believe in untouchables. Why limit yourself?"

    Cubs Open to Trading Kris Bryant

    I don't think the Cubs would give up Bryant for nothing like that though, even if it meant shedding all that bad money. Cubs aren't exactly hurting for cash.

    White Sox Bryce Harper FA pitch spoiler?

    Interesting thought, but I just do not see it happening. I genuinely hope that the fanbase is prepared for the possibility that this does not end up being a splashy offseason for the Sox. Could we go all in? Sure, but I still think continuing the rebuild and signing veteran bridge type players is more likely. The money is there to spend, but this team still has holes all over the place that cannot be addressed in one offseason.

    Cubs Open to Trading Kris Bryant

    If the Cubs feel he won't resign, aren't they still best served to ride out the next few seasons with him as a contender anyway? Sure, you can flip him for prospects, but the Cubs are very much in win now mode. I see very low chance a deal for him gets done.

    Corbin has become top target

    Being completely honest, lets say we sign Harper + Machado + Corbin for $700+ million...do we even make the playoffs in 2019? I still doubt it given the rest of the roster That would add $100 million in payroll for at least the next 5 years as well, killing any flexibility down the line
  14. I would imagine a December signing, as a good portion of the market might wait to see what happens with the two biggest FA's before moving on. Hahn seemed to suggest that things will move along quicker this offseason than last
