Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

Recommended Posts

Give Ryu a 4th year, and consider him the recipient of the Sox being terrible most of the last decade plus. Get the man signed.

i know it’s Bruce but at least we have a rumor to talk about!

This is actually good to hear, as we really haven't heard much of anything recently connecting the Sox to either pitcher.  Bruce's sources are certainly White Sox connected and not Boras connected, making it unlikely that this info is just an agent leverage play.

Sox should offer 4/72 for Ryu. I think that might get it done.

I think this is a fair offer and nothing that will kill the Sox going forward.

I have interest in Gigi Paris...but that is as far as it will go.  I hope the Sox have a better shot.

Ryu terrifies me more than any other free agent signing. His health issues are just such a major risk.

I haven’t heard Alex Cobb’s name mentioned here. He’s coming off surgery but is ready for a full season and projected for 186in. and 1.7 WAR. He’s due 2/$29M. If the Orioles can send a little cash along with Mychal Givens as a strong bullpen piece, it might be worth considering. We can send a Rutherford back to them.

Showing interest means nothing. Results only matter and we are still waiting.

I can’t believe people are ok bringing back a 33 year old starter who averaged 5.5 K’s per 9 last year.  Dude is going to fall off a cliff in the near future and I pray it’s with someone else.

I am not a fan of Nova and there are definitely more interesting secondary SP targets to shoot for before him.

People are just freaking out with all these other signings.  I’m with you, I’m happy to move on from Nova.

I don’t think it’s freaking out to be pessimistic of the Sox chances to land a good SP considering the two remaining that they can obtain for simply money are both Boras clients.

He mentions Robbie ray trade. What would the cost of that be?

Too much.

At this point I would be happy with DK as SP 1 and Walker as 2. I think Walker has the most upside and should cost little. But due to injury concerns bring back Nova as an innings eater.

Opening:

Giolito

DK

Lopez

Cease

Walker/Nova

 

Later:

Giolito

DK

Kopech

Lopez

Cease

 

You have Walker/Nova in case of injury. I did not bother mentioning Rodon as we have no idea what we will get from him. If anything it's a bonus.

Good sweet Lord no, he'd be an absolute car crash at the Cell.... that being said, we'll deal for him.

I'm not sure I see Ryu getting four guaranteed years given the extensive injury history. I think he will get a nice three year deal and remain west.

Keuchel should be our target on a three year agreement
