    It’s Tim Fucking Anderson day!

    Well, I for one, think you are 2 of the best posters on this site. But then again, I'm becoming an old man too. I remember watching the olden days with Wilson Alvarez twirling a no -no before this Rodon chap was born.... Ugh, that fact did make me feel really old. Haha.

    Sox resign Rodon 1 yr /3m official, Vargas DFA

    You either have a terrible memory, or have no idea what results to expect from a back end- middle- or front end starter.

    Corbin Burnes

    It would have had to have been way more than that. There was literally no reason for the Brewers to trade him unless they were absolutely blown away. He is young, under control and was a top Cy Young finisher. Why would any team, much less a small market cost conscious team trade a player like that? I have a hard time believing that he or Woodruff were ever really available. I don't doubt the Sox asked, but I don't think there was ever a legitimate chance the Brewers were going to trade either.

    Rodon indeed scratched. Foodies Know All.

    How had no one laughed at this yet?

    A Nick Madrigal Sized Sample

    The thing that concerns me the most is his defense. He just doesn't make the plays a big league 2B needs to make. I don't know how long this can be attributed to jitters. It isn't even that he doesn't make the great plays. He often doesn't make the regular plays. It is frustrating and he is costing his pitchers.

    Harold over sold him.

    Twins/White Sox in similar positions...

    While this may be true, I think there were some extenuating circumstances last year. This also is more disappointing for the Sox, as Keuchel and Lynn were supposed to be horses that went deeper into games and saved the pen for the games where they will be predictably needed. The starting pitching has been, like just about every other aspect of the beginning of this season, a tremendous disappointment.

    Yeah, seems too risky for the Sox, I see them drafting Gavin Sheets again instead.

    Man. I wish anyone here would have supported Yermin. Apparently he's a dude that can hit.

    White Sox are still a World Series Contender

    Ok, fine and true, but are you going to hold up the rest of your offseason waiting for Joc Pederson? How long do you leave that offer out there? If you make your final offer, and then just hang around waiting, well that isn't good negotiating. Whatever your views on it, the Sox clearly abide by a pretty rigid budget. And they clearly wanted Hendriks. It could have been they they wanted their more minor moves out of the way so they knew exactly what they had to offer to Hendriks. And sometimes guys don't move off their numbers. That has happened a lot recently too. Heck, JBJ still got 2/24, and he waited.
