WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

Recommended Posts

Terrific hitter in Grandal. Just what the Sox need too with a good hitter that can walk and get on base, nice move. Way to jump on him early! McCann can catch, Grandal to DH, Collins to RF.... That's hot baby!!!!!

This is awesome.  Outside of a SP, this had to be their #1 target.

Get Wheeler & Dickerson (or someone like him) & this could be the best offseason they have ever had outside of 2005 offseason.

Does this spell the end of McCann?

Nah. More likely Collins and or Zavala.

They’ve always liked Grandal...makes me wonder if Castellanos is next. It’s funny that Hahn mentioned the 4 big needs and then signs someone else to a huge deal.

Grandal does help with one of those needs, and he said they were looking for flexibility at DH

Collins to RF?  That sounds absolutely horrid from a defense perspective.  The video game mentality of X player can just be moved to X position doesnt work in the real world.  

 

My guess is they move Collins.

I can easily see Grandal being a 4-5 win player for the next 2 years. This is a huge get and great market value if he declines at a reasonable pace.

This improves OBP, defense, left handedness and DH.  While Hahn didn't specifically say catcher, it checks some boxes.

Keep him for depth unless he's a part of a MAJOR trade.

Guys....this is so amazing.  Get Wheeler, trade for a RF, and fill in a couple gaps with cheap stop gaps and we got a fucking SQUAD!!!

That would be stupid to move Collins. He is Grandal but only 25 and can improve.

I saw the tweet from the official sox twitter and thought it was a fake like the fake Rosenthal account. Double checked and was genuinely shocked.

Man would it be nice for an early Grandal signing to really set the tone for this offseason.

This was quite a timely post!
