Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

Recommended Posts

I think they should ditch the black alternate and wear the one they wore on players day last year. Looked like the ATL navy tops with the two layer lettering and numbering.

Spring Training.

I was never a fan of the 83 jerseys but the Nike lettering is so big, it makes them look like a Chinese knockoff.

I think those are the same spring training jerseys as last year, just a Nike version

I thought so, but typically the authentic ST jersey are less in cost than the authentic regular jerseys. I guess things may have changed with Nike, but IIRC that's always how it was

Please tell me that the Sox aren't going to wear this hideous top this year. I fear they will be, as I doubt Nike would make an on-field jersey for no reason

No need for the old English with the mod batter. Use a white sock and diamond on the sleeve.

I'd be good with that.  I always thought black on black and white on white would be a cool look for the Sox, but fear that the negative fan reaction to some of the poorly-designed white-on-whites from players' day may have poisoned the well on that idea.

I think the Sox black on black players weekend looked bad ass, but totally didn't like the look on other teams.

I would love a new Alt/Sunday jersey personally.  The 83s were fun for a while, but now  they feel old and tired and representative of some really bad rebuilding baseball.  This young squad needs a fresh new Alt jersey.

The NIKE swish is big IMO

Bring back the 59 (?) red pinstripes as an alt like they had in 15(?).  Those were sooooooo good.

Marco Gonsales signs 4 year extension with M's; hopefully this means we won't have to hear about dumb Marco trades any longer.

Seems like a pretty fair deal for both sides although if I'm the Mariners I'm not exactly sure what the rush is to lock him up given you just started a rebuild.  He has less trade value now imo.

Just read somewhere that Puig and Holt are the last two remaining top 50 free agents.  I hope were in on them...particularly Holt.  He would probably be handy and cheap.  As I have mention before...Puig is interesting at a price and see if our Cuban clique can keep him in line.  I know the arguments against Puig but just wondering if we could catch lightning in a bottle for cheap.

Then how can you even suggest it?

One would think the staff talked to Jose and some of the other Cubans on the team for their input on Puig. Maybe it was a resounding no.

Nothing screams “WS here we come!” like having a player who’s “handy and cheap”

YES PLEASE!  The 59 cap is my favorite Sox logo, on par with the current classic.

Those same arguments were used to bad mouth AJ...yet he worked out pretty well.

Sox should make a trade for Jarlin Garcia who was DFAed by the Marlins.

Wow they really DFA'd him? He was pretty good last year. I'd take him over Jace Fry.

Not the same arguments unless you have a list of arguments against both players.

There's no doubt AJ was a grade A asshole. He traded people badly. And opponents hated him and so did many of his team mates. As far as I know he didn't get punched in the face in a bar brawl with a bouncer or refuse to listen to his coaches or get quoted as saying he didn't play hard until he was in a contract year.

I tried to find something about AJ getting in trouble with the law . All I could find was he got a speeding ticket in Spring training one year with the Sox without incident. Apparently he knew when NOT to be an asshole.

It's one thing to be an asshole to people but another if you think you know more than your coaches and get in trouble with the law and don't work hard or hustle.

So basically they aren't the same arguments.

Yes, I prefer expensive and useless.  In seriousness, every team should pray for players on its roster who are handy and cheap, particularly in a bench role.  If Holt comes relatively cheap he'd be a great addition to this roster.

Questionable strikeout rate is the only thing.
