    Official 2018-2019 NHL thread

    Maybe we can throw a Nagy and a Robin in there as well?

    Edwin Encarnacion

    This is really all we need to care about. If EE somehow falls off a cliff, you release him and yeah, some money was wasted but that's the risk you take. If EE is good, there's really nothing wrong with that as I'm confident they would find Collins ABs. Yeah, it wouldn't be 600 of them but enough to continue his learning.

    I'm starting to think that Colliton, while probably a really good guy, may simply just be too young to handle some of the personalities on this team. Isn't there something to having a grizzled, crusty, older guy telling you when you're fucking up as opposed to a younger guy? His message may be lost on the older guys.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    I'm not trading our best catching prospect because we sign EE for 1 year. That's silly. Zack sticks around as depth and will get the PAs he will get. If someone gets hurt, thank goodness we still have Zack Collins.

    Sox In on Lindor? Crackpot Rumor?

    I wouldn't really be interested in that. They can keep him for that price. I'd do Madrigal and a one of our flyer OF guys like Basabe or Rutherford. IMO Matthew Thompson should be off the table. Hes got a pretty decent chance and the Sox will need a wave of pitchers by the time he would be "ready".

    White Sox sign Gio Gonzalez

    Better than Hector Santiago I suppose.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Instead we get crap like "Jerry really stepped up to the plate by having the 'top' offer for Wheeler". More like "Once again didn't want to bid against himself to get the player they wanted".

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    No doubt... Cole never would have happened. But imagine those same kinds of words coming out of Hahn's mouth had the Sox given Wheeler an offer he couldn't refuse? Maybe the Sox weren't obsessed with Wheeler, but he was their target and now their offseason appears to be falling apart. It just sucks, man. I'm sick of JR ownership.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Cashman was on MLB Network yesterday talking about the Cole signing. He used phrases such as (and I'm paraphrasing here) "Ownership wanted to do this for the fans." "Ownership is committed to winning at all costs." "We know there is significant risk in this contract, but it takes risks to win championships." And so on. The White Sox cant be the Yankees.. but they aren't even one tenth of the Yankees. The Yankees are the deer you just ran over with your car, the Sox are a fly you ran into. The Sox have built this reality that they live in. Is Sox Twitter too toxic? Tough shit, maybe they should stop being such a risk adverse piece of garbage franchise and give the fans something to be excited about.

    Delmonico is not yet done

    Glad for him and good to have some AAAA guys like him around for depth in worse-case scenario situations.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    I agree. They continue to operate like the We Suck Tax doesnt exist but it clearly does because Wheeler had a price that he would have accepted (everyone can be bought for the right price) but whatever it was, Sox weren't willing to meet. Wife or not, that is the definition of the We Suck Tax and Hahn better not ever push that rhetoric against it again.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Oh yeah it stinks that Wheeler picked the Phillies lesser offer... but money talks. Suck up your useless pride and offer the guy you targeted enough to make him say "hmmm".. but this organization is so anti overpaying that it wont happen. Wheeler could have been bought at the right price, but the Sox once again stuck to their guns and they missed out on the their target. I guess penny smart, pound foolish may apply here?
