    5/23 Games

    Bit of both.

    McCann Extension

    Yeah there's definitely plenty of teams with catcher injuries that would take him for league minimum.

    McCann Extension

    So backup players are exempt from extensions? Got it.

    McCann Extension

    Right, and to the point where him being a backup doesn't hurt us if someone else grabs the starting role (Collins) or they sign someone (Grandal).

    McCann Extension

    And that is over a year away. About 16 months to be exact.

    Former Sox updates (Avi, etc)

    Saw that Melky Cabrera is the batting avg. leader for RFs. What a steal on a minor league deal.

    Time for some changes, Rick

    Yep...right now you have Giolito, Lopez, Nova, Covey, Banuelos (assuming he makes his next start, otherwise there is literally no other options as we saw Monday in a bullpen game lol).

    Sox @ Astros 5/22 Gamethread

    Pitched out of jams with his sinker which is good. But you're right, a bit of luck for sure.

    Without Rodon, there is definitely room for another SP. It seems like Banuelos is nothing more than a reliever.

    Sox @ Astros 5/22 Gamethread

    What a game. A grand slam and a triple play? Wow.

    You think there's a better chance of him getting traded than released? That's crazy. The Sox have cut guys in the past while owing them a good chunk of money for the season.

    Yeah more than likely.

    I'm just saying I don't want those types. I would literally rather spread $65m around 2 or 3 guys if at least one of them is a premium talent than spread it around 5-6 over the hill veterans to fill a roster (aka what we know them for when they would try to compete).
  14. soxfan2014

    Time for some changes, Rick

    Yes as long as they'e going to spend a good amount of that on premium talent. Not the usual innings eater to about $10 mill, a couple relievers at ~$8 mill each, stop gap veteran outfield type, and veteran stop gap DH. Like the moves we're used to when they "spend money" or "try to compete."

    I fully expect Abreu to be re-signed based on Hahn's comments so there's some money.

    After last off-season, I'm never getting my hopes up again. Just going to wait for the "Sox agree to sign/sign (insert player name here) to deal" headline. Edit: not until Jerry is gone at least.
  17. I could see Eaton being a biter to be honest.

    Addison Reed anyone? He was DFA'd and was pitching on a rehab assignment with the Twins. At this point, our pen needs someone to soak up some innings.
  19. It's regarding the White Sox. They always seem to be involved in bizarre/obscure news or stories. Some cool, baseball related and then some like this. Nothing surprises me anymore.

    White Sox @ Astros: a game thread

    Well...isn't that obvious?

    Either way, in no universe am I dealing Colome now.
  22. soxfan2014

    Time for some changes, Rick

    Yes there are definitely years when May is the time to make a move. But definitely not a guy who may be the top reliever on the market (also with an additional year of control).

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Yep. Companies are quick to make decisions that effects their employees lives (relocating jobs, cutting departments, etc). Happened to me at a company I was with a few years ago, and just happened to my former co-workers at my last job.

    Time for some changes, Rick

    How about: DFA Alonso and Castillo, call up Mendick and Collins, start Mendick at 2B, and give Jose Rondon a 1B glove (split time at DH).

    I agree.
