I think the Sox could find a way to get Moncada done, although the numbers would likely be eye popping. 

Yup. It's going to be a ridiculous extension but the fact is he's likely to be worth it.

If you're going to go there, you have to wait another year, make sure he puts up 6 fWAR/162 again, and back up the Brinks truck.

Moncada is going to be borderline impossible to get done I would think. 

Not if you really lay down an aggressive deal.   Like 8 years $150 million plus.

This is the best all around player they've had in my lifetime. Can't let him get away. 

They didn't let Frank get away so I hope they treat Moncada with the same reverence.

Hahn has time, but this is the guy you might just have to bite the bullet and pay large sums of money.

yeah, these deals tend to happen when teams have the leverage. Moncada has all of it right now.

We will get a deal done with Yoan when the time comes. We will probably lose Eloy in 7 years though after giving Yoan, Gio, and probably Kopech good deals. If for some reason Yoan can't be retained, we will probably trade him for a King's ransom and replace him with a FA. If you take him off this team, we can still win with the rest of the talent that will be here.

The Score is absolutely blowing the Sox for once.  Funny to hear.

They had to give Bruce his token spot to pretty much add nothing but a bad cell phone line connection.

Listen... if Moncada truly ends up being a superstar, then you effing pay him what he deserves. If they let their own guy go, big ticket free agents will never look at the White Sox.

With Moncada MLB adding a franchise tag would be nice. 

I think that this will happen in the new CBA. To get rid of the manipulation, players will get paid earlier. In return, I think teams will get the franchise for 1 home grown talent per year and a max of two tags per player.

Sox are going to have 1 of the most exciting lineups in baseball on day 1 and are only going to add Madrigal shortly...

Hahn and co actually proved us wrong. Good for them, I have no problem eating crow. A lot more left to do on the field of course.

I agree. But I don’t think it gets done early.

Beautiful. Hopefully he can stay healthy and develop some more plate discipline. Remember, just a year ago some people were already writing him off.

Yeah. Is what it is right now. You have three years of exclusive negotiating. Let’s just celebrate what we have now, which is now all of our top acquired talent in the majors on opening day. If we have to pay Moncada “a lot”, so be it.

At least Laurence Holmes will mix in some White Sox talk usually. Wouldn't be surprised if the afternoon guys have a 15 minute segment on the Sox and then talk about how bad Mitch Trubisky is for 4 hours.

We know one club that has put itself on the right side of a good-faith bargain. Luis will hit six HR and five bunt singles on OD.
