    Abreu wants to stay long term

    Agreed. He's been a great player his entire tenure with the Sox but last year was his worst season by far and he's getting up there in age. Like I said, I'd do a 3 year and $30 million extension. No more.

    Abreu wants to stay long term

    I wouldn't give him $15 million a season moving forward. But maybe that's just me.

    3 years/$30 million.

    Alternate Plan for a $150 Million Payroll

    In a perfect world, this is what I want the Sox to do: Get Harper or Machado. A superstar in their prime to anchor the lineup and be the face of the franchise long term. AND Sign a couple of the bridge guys (Donaldson/Brantley/McCutchen/Moustakas/Happ/Cahill/Familia) to 1 or 2 year deals. This would make the team much more formidable in the short term, but these guys wouldn't be blocking any prospects. The Sox would once again have a substantial amount to spend in a couple years once these contracts are up to use towards filling holes when the team should be closer to being a legit contender. This would be the best of both worlds in my opinion.
  5. Money would change that real fast.

    Creative Trades

    I would actually consider that Trout proposal if he signed an extension immediately after, but that would never happen.
  7. It's going to happen. I'd bet one of Greg's houses on it.
  8. I might be in the minority but I don't even want Arenado. He'll be just about 29 on Opening Day 2020 and his stats away from Coors aren't all that special.
  9. At worst, Donaldson is probably an ~.800 OPS guy for the foreseeable future assuming he can stay on the field. I'd take that production in a heartbeat.
  10. I'd do 2 years and $40m. Or maybe even 3 years and $45m. Donaldson is a stud and adding him to this lineup would be huge.
  11. Agreed. Just imagine the massive increase in OBP just from adding Harper and Donaldson. The Sox would have so many more guys on base every game.
  12. I'd be thrilled with Donaldson as well if the Sox can get Harper too. Injuries are obviously a concern with him but his upside is tremendous. When healthy, he's one of the best hitters in this entire free agent class.
  13. For shits and giggles, let's say the Sox are able to get Harper. Would you guys target someone like Josh Donaldson to play 3rd base? Or would you keep Yolmer there?

    White Sox trying to trade Avi Garcia?

    In all seriousness, I can't see the Sox cutting ties with Avi unless they are planning on upgrading that position. If nothing else, they'll probably sign someone like Michael Brantley to replace him, though I still think Harper is a definite possibility.

    Making room for Bryce Harper.
