Came here just to say this. They have some serious star power in Trout, Rendon, and Ohtani, one washed up and absolutely horrible contract in Pujols, and no pitching. They’re an older version of what we had three years ago.

Moreno doesn't give a fuck. He's going to go get Bumgarner/Ryu and Jon Gray. 

It must be nice to have an owner that lives on Earth instead of Uranus. 

 

That being said, I think Uranus is too close to earth. He might as well be floating around in interstellar space.

Upton's deal is fricken brutal too.

Jack, you were praising Daniels earlier. Guys had a rough off season.

Rangers were as confident in Rendon publically as the Sox were in Manny. 

Hes 0-2 this off-season and things arent looking up.

It just seems the Sox are playing in a different league than so many of these teams. It’s like NIU trying to recruit against Alabama and Georgia in football.

I can't wait to call Les Grobstein at work to nominate Rick Hahn for bum of the week.

Jerry is pulling the strings.

He's still better than Hahn. 

The Sox are living in the Golden Sombrero galaxy. Just whiff after whiff.

Hahn is the worst GM in the league

It's not even close. The difference between Hahn and the remainder of baseball is megaparsecs. 

Rick Hahn is a disgrace to his profession.

They signed Gibson... following up 10.7 fWAR created from just Lynn and Minor.  Two completely under the radar moves. 

They have a beautiful new facility.... their third in a quarter century, and as good a shot at Donaldson and Ryu/Bumgarner/Keuchel as anyone else.

I think Iowa vs. OSU/PSU/UM/Wisconsin/Nebraska in recruiting is closer. 

The difference is turning 2~3 star recruits into Dallas Clark, Kittle, Hockenson and Fant.   But there's just no way they could win an NCAA title in football or basketball. 

Whereas the White Sox have a puncher's chance at another WS if everything goes just right, like 2005 and 2008 the last two weeks.

Probably is, but at least he’s only a year removed from showing a pulse. Pujols has been a waste for the last three years, and they weren’t even injury-stricken years. He’s just bad now.

Seriously, I know it didn’t harm Frank at all, but I’m gonna be salty if Pujols gets something like 98% of the HOF vote on the first try and nobody even mentions his decline. They all talked about Frank’s decline, but except for his increasingly more common injuries with age, Frank hit like a HOFer pretty much until he hung up his cleats. Pujols hasn’t hit like one of those since he was 31.

Rendon never made sense. 

Why move a budding star who is a GG caliber 3B to spend a bunch of money to downgrade two positions defensively? 

It would be spending money just to say you did it. 

How did we get from here to absolute meltdown in less than an hour?

I’m not even mad about Rendon. I knew that wouldn’t happen. Last year was just a show for the fans. They knew Manny wouldn’t take that offer. At this point, it’s just boiling to a head. I’m over it. I want to have a fun baseball team and franchise. Off-seasons are a gut punch every year.

Reality is setting in that we aren't doing anything else and likely kicking the can down the road for another year.

I mean, that post was bad so let's not use it as an example of being level headed.

I’m all for meltdowns, but this one is ridiculous. Want to know why the Sox didn’t want to go after him for a long deal?  He’s already like 5 years older than Manny was when he was a FA. I love Rendon, but there are other places to spend the money.
