    White Sox Offseason Rumors

    I agree with getting deeper, but there's 0 reason to only aim for the Homer Bailey/Porcello/Calhoun tier of players as a complete off-season.

    White Sox Offseason Rumors

    Agreed, listened to this and was repulsed by some of the suggestions.

    Trade Candidates: Hitters

    Yeah for Carson's sake they should move him, see if he can find it somewhere else.

    Trade Candidates: Hitters

    Follow ya now, I mean I'd send em Fulmer for either one I guess, but definitely nothing sexy about the move.

    He can't hit his way out of a wet paper bag, at least not at the major league level.

    Predict the Market: FA Contracts

    https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/payroll/ https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/chicago-white-sox/payroll/ As of this moment, their active payroll stands just shy of 48M. If every player was tendered a contract at their estimated totals (except Goins since he already elected free agency so I cut him out) and including Yonder's 1M buyout, the payroll would come out to just over 64.5M.
  9. Yes, it's hard to fathom a baseball player, coming off of 5.4 & 4.6 fWAR seasons at 24 & 25, suddenly go from above average baseball player and take the next step in their development and turn into an All Star/MVP level player in their prime. Honestly, I'm not sure if you're backing Yelich with this being more of a "Move along, nothing to see here" comment or trying call him out because you think something is up.

    Cole or Strasburg?

    Never hurts to ask I guess.

    Abreu Accepts 1 YR Qualifying Offer

    It was crappy/aging (and it was in reference to the Sox previously having hordes of crappy and/or aging players making big money), and Jose applies to the latter. You can't deny that fact. I'm glad he accepted, because he had a chance to test the open market and it let him know that he wasn't going to do better by signing somewhere else. Jose is getting overpaid a bit this year and that's more than ok. I don't see how giving him longer term and considerably more money for no other reason than him being Jose is a good move.

    I don't think many, if any posters care about Jerry's wallet. Many posters are aware that the team (for better or worse) operates within a set budget from JR. Said posters also don't want the money available to be spent frivolously when the market doesn't demand it. It's not a hard concept. The Sox not all that long ago had a lot of bad money tied up in crappy/aging players. Giving Jose a bunch of money (that he definitely would NOT get on the open market) at this juncture is unnecessary.
