Nomar Mazara Speculation

Eeeeek. Merk usually doesn't chime in that specifically on individual players. 

It's obviously a smoke screen to help negotiations with a free agent OF. Probably. Hopefully. Or not. Oh God!

I’m not going to get worked up until I see the return. Possible it could be a buy low situation.

Buying is not the problem. He sucks and if you want to win, you need to do better. We have money to spend so he shouldn't be on our radar, unless we sign Cole.

Avi had 6 years of control. Mazara is a goner if he sucks and he will test free agency in 2021 if he indeed does break out. SIgn Dickerson as a stop gap. It's not like Mazara is a gold glover out there.

That's true, so hopefully the cost is not much. Dickerson is not exactly know for his glove either. Only good glove RF out there is Calhoun, but he's old. I guess if you're going to roll the dice on someone, might as be a young guy? 

  1. Robert (R)
  2. Moncada (S)
  3. Abreu (R)
  4. Grandal (S)
  5. Jimenez (R)
  6. Anderson (S)
  7. McCann/Collins (R/L) 
  8. Mazara (L)
  9. Madrigal (R)

That's not horrible. At least it's better than last year 🤷‍♂️? Sox must really be hoping for a buy-low move, or this doesn't make any sense.

I don’t mind him if you’re spending money on quality pitching. He has more potential than any of the outfielders in the system besides Robert.

We have this player Mazara in our minor league system already, why trade for him. Over 100 plus ks and 30 bb every season, this is an easy player to find.

I don't mind it. I like Mazara. Still young and has untapped potential. 

Hopefully it doesn't cost too much. If they can get away with an OF swap for Rutherford/Gonzalez I'm fine with it. 

I know that he only has 2 years of control left, but it's not like there are better options.

Thesis: White Sox need an outfielder who can hit

Antithesis: White Sox need an outfielder who can field.

Synthesis: White Sox are getting an outfielder who can neither hit nor field.

RELAX PEOPLE!! Bowden is always wrong. This will be no different 

The White Sox own MLB.com reporter Scott Merkin is also reporting this travesty.

Mazara just can't have that much trade value IMO.  The potential may cause someone to pay more than the fWAR would indicate, but at some point, you're just not valuable.

The amount of smoke around this makes me feel a deal is imminent. Hope I'm wrong. This isn't a "wow" name.

Yeah, me too. As long as it doesn't cost one of Dunning/Stiever/ Matt Thompson/Dalquist I'm fine. Those are the guys I'm freaked out about them trading in a deal like this.

I'll reserve judgement until I see who they give up....the problem is I just don't trust Hahn to not trade the wrong guy(s)

This is exactly the kind of deal we should expect. Hahn and company have shown they either won’t or can’t land top talent. The result is continuing to collect blah players. Keep the fans just happy enough to think there’s a chance of hope one day. SSDD.
