    On to Plan B

    Some RF options that make Benintendi a potentially attractive trade target: Joc Pederson - I doubt he wants to play here. He might be one of the better options if he would and a deal could be made. Castellanos - Boras might demand something like 5/100 ... Castellanos can't Defend or throw as well as Bennintendi. Marcell Ozuna had right shoulder surgery and could not throw very well before or after that. He is listed as 225 pounds but looks like he has grown from there, The Sox would have to provide Draft compensation to the Cardinals if they sign him. He already turned down a QO for $17.5 Million for one year. Tsutsugoh - Probably better as a 1B/DH . ----- Price would be a costly contract but he could still pitch so it isn't like that money would be thrown away.

    Not sure what BoSox would ask WSox for in exchange for Price and Benintendi but I would think the WSox and Chaim could get that done, Perhaps Stiever and Vaughn, McCann and Dane Dunning, Steele Walker and ReyLo, or some similar combination. I would not like giving up anybody in that transaction, but the BoSox will want some value back even though we would be taking a huge, burdensome contract off their hands. Do that and add Keuchel or another legit starter and it would be quite an off-season.
  3. You're right . I just thought Ray , not being thought of on the same level as Stras or Cole might be worth trying to trade for and then extending on a long term deal.
  4. " Over the past two years, Ray produced elite strikeout numbers, comparable to the Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole, and Max Scherzer. The reason Ray is available for trade, though, is that he’s not particularly good at the other side of pitching: keeping guys off base. His K-BB% is mediocre, just a tick above the 18% median of the 91 pitchers in that plot. His walk rate is dead last in this set! That delta highlights how much Ray struggles to find the plate, even when he has very real swing-and-miss stuff. That’s the tweak the Yankees feel like they can make if they land Ray.

    If the reports are true that the Sox and Cubs are in competition to sign Keuchel and Castellanos, do the White Sox lose on both guys unless they substantially beat the Cubs Offers ? If so, that seems like a terrible no-win situation for Rick,Kenny and Jerry. ...either over pay substantially or lose out on the players.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Ozuna had surgery to clean up his right shoulder and could not play the outfield until March 2019. No way he gets signed anywhere on a multi-year deal before getting cleared by team's medical staff. Any team will want an evaluation of his shoulder, his weight and conditioning.

    If we sign Ozuna bye-bye to our second round pick , the 49th pick over-all. No I don't want this dude on a long term deal. He looks like he already took on some weight and he is only going to box out further like most people do with age. I don't like his demeanor and the way he wears his hat crooked. Goddamnit. Tell me this rumor is bulshit.

    Does the team that signs Ozuna have to provide a Draft pick as partial compensation?

    I don't think Sale can co-exist with Sox management but maybe he can. I also like the "plan E" someone suggested taking Price , Eovaldi and Benintendi for a similar package that ChiSox378 proposed.
