Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

Recommended Posts

We will wait. Someone will hear something is happening. Everybody will start going crazy. The next thing we know we sign Rich Hill. That's a life of a sox fan.

Boras literally said the opposite in his media scrum on Tuesday.  Something like - "I've spent a lot of time on the phone with the White Sox last several days.  They're being very aggressive." 

I trust what Boras says after his FA sign, not before. I am sure he was using the Sox as leverage in other negotiations. Besides, its possible the Sox were aggressive in early offers but backed out once other teams drove prices up to their appropriate value.

Yah - I mean, I didn't hear whatever fathom is referring to.  Just relying what I heard from Boras on Tuesday.  The top end guys we're never happening.  But hopefully Sox still in contact on Ryu.  Ryu would still be the best move they can make on the FA market right now, and he's still available.

the heated seats in his Mercedes malfunctioning?

That too. I bet Jerry pays for the repairs. Ahh that’s where the money is being spent. We can all relax now. 😂

Sox are promoting ticket packages that include two free March or April games.  I'm sure people want to freeze watching Engel and Mendick in while Robert and Madrigal are held down in Charlotte.

Those games are going to be so barren.  😂

I still think they will do something because it’s still early in the offseason but I’m starting to get a little concerned because they are just standing around, shrugging there shoulders. Not a good sign. 

How do you know that?

This is my winner for best reply.

Boras seemed to imply last night that the Sox weren’t being aggressive enough with his clients 

I'm shocked that Boras would say something like that.

I'm guessing Laughing Sox is a Cubs fan.

Those comments perfectly sum up how I feel and exactly what I told the ticket lady today.  What a fucking joke.

The FO doesnt care what you think. People were saying the same thing last offseason and attendance was way up. 

Last offseason was really bad.

This year is arguably much worse and fans are sick of the shitty excuses and back tracking.

All the angst from Sox fans.   Did people really honestly think the Sox were going to come out with a Cole, Strasburg , or Rendon this offseason?   I'm assuming that's where all the negativeness comes from.  

I myself  was shocked we even got Grandal. 

Maybe the Wheeler thing is what ruined the mood.  But let's get real, 5 years $120 million for that guy was a tall reach to begin with.

Lmfao comments are gold

My favorite:

“I’ve got a seat at the purchasing table... which I think is probably good enough, probably won't get the ok from the boss to purchase though.”

I can almost bet attendance will see yet another jump this season.  

As I said yesterday, there is still plenty positive on the current roster to get on-board with.
