Zack Wheeler Thread

I don't trust this dude. Just like all the "insiders" last year. Makes a bold claim and then gets all cryptic. If they sign him, he will claim he had a source, if they don't he will say he never said he was in the know. 

I mean, he's far more connected than just some random twitter/soxtalk dude.

Except know this one has a real connection to the White Sox. He isn't just some dude. 

I agree with that BUT I would also point out that there were many people with obvious connections making claims last year that never came to pass.....

A lot of those people were right up until the minute they suddenly weren't

Since Grandal was so under the radar, any chance the Sox have put offers on the table for Cole or Strasburg, in addition to Wheeler?

Sure, but the tweet I quoted made it seem as if the Sox would sign 2 legit starters. Seems like a waste of resources to me. Sign 1 (wheeler) and then get a cheap guy that can make 10 or so starts and then shift to the pen. 

Yah, I mean that's not going to happen. Its going to be a good rotation piece like Wheeler/Ryu/Madbum and then a 1 year deal SP like Wood, Miley, Hill, Gio Gonzalez, Smyly, Porcello, Etc.  Assuming (hoping) the first one is Wheeler, I expect the 1 year stop gap add to be a lefty.

Yup. I think the 1 year add is Wood or Hamels. I'd prefer Wood but Hamels is a vet and more reliable.

Absolutely NEEDS to be a lefty with this scenario likely being true. Miley is my choice as well.

What is up with the Gavin Lux reference? 

We highly scouted him during the draft... When wanted him at pick 26 (I believe we got Burdi) but he went at like 23..

IMHO, It would be amusing to see Gio Gonzalez actually pitch for the White Sox after trading him away so many times.

I think Hamels is beating a 1 year deal. JMO.

Trying to look at rumors from random people (and even from some of the experts) on Twitter is what will destroy you. 

Last year proved how unbelievably hopeless that was. 

I strongly suggest avoiding posting that type of BS.

I'd give Hamels two years if we get Wheeler, and he is the last best option. If we don't want him, we'd be able to trade him next year anyway. Hamels may turn out to be a very good lefty bullpen arm down the line.

Missing out on Benintendi and Lux sucked. Both were heavily linked to the Sox in their respective drafts.

Were only around 81 million still after Grandal.  I believe we were at 63 after Abreu and arb.

Add Wheeler at 20 and Castellanos at 16 or 17 per and our payroll is still under 120 million.

You're missing the 10-15 minimum salary guys that fill out the roster. They were just about $70 after Abreu, assuming no Yolmer and counting those guys. This pushes them to nearly $90.

Does spotrac not account for that?  They have us pegged at 64 before adding Grandal.
