    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (steveno89 @ Dec 28, 2016 -> 12:48 PM) A 75 win team is not considered competitive at all That puts you at least 12-15 wins away from contention Alright then add 5-6 wins. There you go.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    I tend to be optimistic, and will probably get torn apart for suggesting this. I think this is going to be a quick rebuild. We will be bad in 2017 obviously, but 2018 we will be competitive (75 win team). Some of these guys are not far from the majors. Obviously lets let the rest of the offseason play out, but I could definitely see this team competing in 2019. Lastly, this is not anything new, but my friend works for the sox (in a lower role) and said that the pirates are a definite possibility for Q. Seems like Cutch could be holdings things up for the bucs.

    Quintana Rumors: Round and round and round we go

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Dec 19, 2016 -> 03:02 PM) The Yankees are always an interesting case. I know they are saying one thing, but the other side is that there is always a ton of outside pressure on this team to compete and compete now. The Red Sox going out and getting Chris Sale, plus the fact the Yankees have played exactly one playoff game in the last four years only multiplies that. Quintana makes a ton of sense for them, as they need starting pitching badly, and he has such a small salary for the next four years, it allows the Yankees to compete while not destroying their luxury tax space. As of today they would be under the mark for 2017, which is a big consideration. They can add Q, and not endanger that. Bingo. Well said.

    Give me a Q to Rockies trade. I think someone is going to budge here pretty soon. Quintana is exactly what so many teams need, especially with that contract.

    From a speculation stand point, I think the Rockies make way too much sense. Quintana is one of the few pitchers that might actually pitch decent in Coors as well. I live out here in CO, and as a Purple Row article mentioned, I think it could benefit both teams greatly. I have not seen Rodgers play, but everyone raves about him here... Also, if there was anyway ever we could get David Dahl, sign me up. Seen him play multiple times and is going to be the real deal. Just a pipe dream though.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 01:59 PM) Teams are making deals and left and right and we're supposed to think the only halfway decent offer we got for any of our guys was a 4th OF for Duke? I think it's pretty easy to say they f***ed up on dealing their secondary pieces. Yep. Other teams had no problem making deals. I really think that the FO really just does not which direction to head.

    At least we got Charlie Tilson.... JB Shuck 2.0.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    While the Yankees do not have a top ten prospect, they have a lot of guys in the top 100. I would definitely like a package headlined by Torres and Frazier.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    QUOTE (ChiSoxFanMike @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 11:27 AM) Red Sox are posturing so hard right now. I guarantee they're dying to get Sale. Yep, this exactly.

    Nothing is going to happen. Which is a shame because Robertson, Melky and Shields (or Gonzalez) should be unloaded.

    It's over for 2016

    This team will have a 500 week and not do anything significant at the deadline. They will finish right around 500 and Ventura will be back next year.... Exciting.

    Rodon's Replacement in Rotation

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Jul 14, 2016 -> 01:36 PM) He also reported that the Sox and Cespedes finalized a contract in December He might have been headed to the sox if the Mets did not finally decide they absolutely had to have him or their offense would be even more awful....
