Zack Wheeler: To the Phils (5yr 118); Sox had made BIGGER offer

Here’s my take.  The Sox are sitting around 5/$110M.  That’s currently the highest offer.  Wheeler’s camp is making one last Hail Mary to see if anyone will do something crazy and go six.  If not, he’s a member of the White Sox in the next 24 hours.

Yep and it's not just for getting that year back. We don't want a Strasburg situation where you can't use him in the stretch run or playoffs, if you make it. 

Right.  Kopech isn't throwing 200 innings next year.  I'd much rather have him pitching for the Sox in August and September than April and May.

If someone else gives him a sixth year and the Sox bow out they are gonna need to get Ryu or someone good signed pronto to quell the eruption of anger that is bound to occur.

Oh wait I forgot they have never cared about what the fans think, never mind. Maybe they'll just sign Keuchel AND Hamels to 2 year inflated deals and declare the pitching issue "addressed" as if we are stupid or something.

Zack Wheeler's brother has tweeted ChiSoxFanMike quite a few times today... probably means nothing but kinda interesting

Relatives of FA targets as an indicator.

 

Time is a flat circle.

He isn’t following that many people either, so it’s kind of puzzling why he would be following a White Sox account. Good catch.

This entirely depends on Lopez/Kopech/Cease and the bullpen. I think the offense will be good but the pitching even if they sign Wheeler, is still a question mark.
