    McCann finalist for catcher for ASG

    The votes for the three finalists are reset - the one with the highest votes on Election Day is the starter; the other two are not guaranteed a roster spot.
  3. The Phillies were loathe to include Medina in the Realmuto trade - he's not going anywhere for a reliever.

    Engel and Frare Optioned to AAA

    I’d rather see Aaron Altherr (DFA’d by Phillies) given a try than Matt Kemp.

    Eloy officially got paid

    I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that with the league and MLBPA having recently agreed to in-season CBA discussions to tweak a few things, the White Sox can see that the service-time manipulation dance is nearing its end. If they can reach a deal, there's no longer a reason to go through the charade any longer.

    Renovations to Ballpark

    If you're referring to the Craft Kave, yes.

    SOXFEST Running Thread

    The latter. Your sons can still go to any of the kid-exclusive stuff.
  8. The slight advantage that the Phillies would have with Trout is that he came from the area and grew up a Phillies fan; as we see from the possible Machado/Yankees situation, “always wanted to be a _____ growing up” has a bit of weight behind it.

    Update: Machado met with Sox

    Likely just that the gap day is for travel to the East Coast, whereas Philly and New York can be back-to-back days via car due to close proximity.

    Rosenthal: Could Harper be headed to the southside

    Anything's possible under stress - I've seen people here (and elsewhere) all but calling Philadelphia a dinky little backwater of a town, as if it were Cincinnati or Des Moines!

    2018-9 MLB off season free agency thread

    They’re real, but the Phillies got the better pitcher in the trade.
  12. *and* the Phillies don't pay any of Santana's salary.
  13. The unknowable that I'm left pondering is: if a sore-kneed Avi was worth one TJS-needed pitching prospect, what was Avi's (presumably) higher trade worth in the preceding offseason? And if it was indeed a higher return, why didn't the team pull the trigger, if they were willing to do so when the return was a single injured prospect later on?

    Sox Pride Club discontinued for 2018

    Several MLB teams have reduced or eliminated their online fan clubs over the past 5-6 seasons.

    JR now on MLB executive council

    Considering the JR's original objection to Manfred being Commissioner was that he didn't think Manfred was hard enough on the MLBPA during previous CBA negotiations, what do you think?
