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

This is it.

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

Why try to find any consistency in this place?

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. 

3 years younger — Machado was 26 and Rendon is 29, and it’s reflected in their contracts.

Machado received 10 years and Rendon received 7 years.

Well sure. It's not going to be anything inspiring. Something like Wood/Miley and Porcello/Walker, a crappy reliever and call it an offseason.

In all honesty, the Sox were better off not signing Rendon. It’s better to sign or trade for multiple pieces to build around a team than to give a ton of money to one player. Teams have a better chance winning championships that way.

With as much as this board complains about defense......

Listen, of course Rendon makes this team better. It's just a dumb allocation of resources for the Sox. 

And what if Madrigal is ass?? Then all of a sudden you now need a 2B... wouldn’t sound like dumb allocation of resources. 
Signing Rendon, because you missed out on Wheeler, you move Moncada back to 2B, use Madrigal as a trade piece for a SP.. 
And if Madrigal ends up being good then you have more talent on your team.

And let’s be real a bad allocation of resources is signing Jeff Keppinger, LaRoche, Ervin Santana.

I thought Rendon was a waste of resources since this FO pretends to be on a section 8 voucher.

With that being said going in on him is the type of aggressive move we need to do. You then use Madrigal for a TOR SP.  The fact they weren't in on any of the top players is an indictment on this orginization as a whole.

As a Sox fan for longer than most here I have seen many many bad teams. Players come and go as do FO personnel and owners. If you don't have a sense of humor about it. It will anger you and drive you crazy; You can hope things get better but in the end it usually doesn't work out.

That's why a few days ago I made that post about it being so White Sox that the year they and we thought they'd spend the money the FA market goes apeshit after a few depressed years. It's like hey White Sox you are SOL again.

How long have you been a Sox fan? 

I've been going since I was a little kid. I remember going around in my Starter Frank Thomas uniform pack as a 6 year old when the Sox were on their way to the 93 division title. 

My dad took me to a game in the old park when I was 3 so I could say I was there. I have no memory of it.

Since Gary Peters, Tommy John and Joel Horlen were pitching for the Sox. I was between 7 and 9 years old then  buying baseball cards , watching my older brother imitating Carl Yaztremski's batting stance and him calling me Willie because William is my middle name and McCovey and Mays were very popular.

I didnt peg you as a 60+ year old dude. 

Stay young at heart, my friend. 

I didn't find this out until later in life, but my dad isn't actually a Sox fan. He's a Dodger fan who despise the Cubs. 

I listen to my dad talk about Drysdale, Ron Cey, Davey Lopes and Steve Garvey all the time.

I was at the Disco Demolition game. I was in Anaheim Stadium when the Sox clinched the pennant in 05. I was in Chicago in September for a hastily put together family reunion to watch my 85  yr old dad throw out the 1st pitch in the Sox DH that got rained out against Detroit. Danny Mendick caught it. It was sort of a commemoration of 4 generations of Sox fans gathered up from around the country for that game.We went to a game one year and I found a picture of my dad and 2 of my brothers in the program in an ad for Family Day in 1974 . The pic was a few years old but there they were. So here's a pic of the scoreboard with my dad and older brother , his great grand son and grandson.

Sorry I’d take our current roster over the angels and it’s not even close 

La Stella
Trout
Rendon
Ohtani
Upton
Goodwin
Simmons
Fletcher
Stassi


Heaney
Bundy
Ohtani
Canning
Barria

 

this is absolute GARBAGE!

Try and make yourself feel better but that lineup is disgusting. Trying to get through Trout, Rendon and Ohtani is gonna be brutal.

 

And you really think thats gonna be their roster opening day? They are rumored to go get Keuchel, Madbum or Ryu and trade for Kluber or Carrasco. They're gonna be a much more rounded team than us because they have an owner who gives a shit. And they got a absolute stud in Jo Adell about to come up and make that lineup even scarier.

 

Ill trade our owner and our whole team for that Angels team anyway. Trout, Rendon and Ohtani alone is better then anything we have right now.

At least the Sox big FA target actually chose a different state to play in instead of going just down the street?

Dodgers fans are pissed lol.

Rendon reportedly balked at use of deferrals in Nats’ offer

 

Max Scherzer's contract had over $100 million in deferrals, and Strasburg's has about $80 million as well.

Scott Boras talked Tuesday about how the deferrals leave room for the Nationals to sign 'Rendon and many players,' but it doesn't appear the Nationals have a great chance at bring Rendon back if they don't.
