    Free Agency - How confident are you?

    Could always try to make a deal like SD did with Garrett Richards. I know there have been a couple others that are similar (signing an injured player to a multi year pact and essentially punting on ur 1), but the names aren't coming through to me. Evoaldi a few years ago maybe?

    Jimenez, Cease ranked 4th and 18th in long-term values

    It seemed to be people panicking over a whole lot of nothing.

    James McCann - catcher of the future ?

    Here's some interesting stats from Mike Petriello on McCann's season. I'd still very much love for the Sox to try and sign Grandal this off-season and push James into a more suitable back up role (and Collins around to learn from the both of them), which would really solidify the C position for the Sox.

    It's now officially tank SZN.

    2020 White Sox Season Ticket Changes

    I know, that would just be malarkey.

    JD Martinez

    I'd chose the better player. But if Jose was given 1 yr & an option AND JD was signed to a multi yr pact, I think that could work for me...which makes it totally implausible in White Sox reality.

    Could the White Sox hire Dave Dombrowski?

    If you didn't win the WS with the lowest payroll and best farm, did you really win it?

    2020 White Sox Season Ticket Changes

    A more effective strategy is to sign the good players first, that will increase the demand and help sell tix in the future. You could justify an increase then.

    Could the White Sox hire Dave Dombrowski?

    I think any of us would trade a place in payroll purgatory for a bit for 4 titles in 15 years, 2 of which came in the last 6 years.

    JD Martinez

    JD is better though...

    White Sox final win total

    74 just to match Eloy.

    Nick Castellanos

    I was under the impression that they were referring to trading away a veteran when the young guy is ready, but maybe I misinterpreted that.

    100% if they're able to add a few of the backend top 30 guys, I wouldn't be upset with that at all. It just sucks that we've made it halfway through the list and we've got nothing but crickets.

    I don't disagree with anything that you've put out here. I'm just hoping that they take some "risks" with these types of players. I'm just trying to stay semi-optimistic so I don't completely go crazy over their unwillingness to stray from their usual, dumb path.

    https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/2020-international-mlb-prospects-preview-more-top-players-to-watch/ That original link from Aug 21 has 10 players on it, none of which are linked to the Sox. A new one was released today (the above link), that has 6 different players on it, none of which are linked to the Sox as well. The optimist in me says that not all of the top guys have had their "links" announced yet, so there's still hope for some of next guys that make these articles. The pessimist in me says why the hell aren't the Sox tied to any of these guys, knowing that the team would be out of the penalty (for the 2nd year) and had ample time to prepare for this. I'd say it's a bit too early to proclaim that they're for sure going to trade the INTL space away, but as we all know, old habits are hard to break with this team.
