KW says "no Puig"

Recommended Posts

That Fake Cishek on Twitter actually said the same thing as Bruce. Said that Hahn wanted Holt and Jerry said no more spending. I think they are both full of crap

Agree. I can't picture Holt got more than $3-4 Mil this late.  Now-a days that is an order of new bats.

Hahn has already stated the Sox are far from maxed out money wise...

That's one of those things a GM should say even if they are 100% maxed out down to the last cent. "Oh Mr. Holt I'm sorry the White Sox said publicly that they're maxed out, I guess you'll have to take a discount with us" says the Brewers GM.

I just want to point out that Puig is working out wearing white socks on his latest instagram story post. Signing imminent.

I know it’s Bruce Levine but he was on The Score just now and said he doesn’t see Puig happening.  He said, “the Sox are pretty much maxed-out money-wise.”

This could explain why they haven’t signed any cheap bench options.

God Bruce is terrible.  Hahn has stated multiple times the Sox aren't maxed.  How he still has a job boggles my mind.

I've heard similar from other beat writers privately FWIW. This is a Reinsdorf problem. Don't displace your rage toward Bruce in this case.

But we can both agree that Bruce is mind boggling at least?

So you're saying that the Sox are going to max out a payrolls of ~$120-125M moving forward?  Because if that is the case, this whole rebuild was for nothing.

Good to hear that JR is still not fully 100% committed to winning.

They have always wanted to win...  but at the payroll Jerry is comfortable with.

Bruce didn’t know that keeping Kopech down in the minors to start the season could save some of his service time, when many posters here did.  Meanwhile, Bruce covers Chicago baseball as his career.  I would say your assessment is still correct.

I think that means in general - meaning they see their peak payroll in the 160-180 range but they have no plan to he there tomorrow or this year given that guys pay raises are likely factored in, as well as the addition of future FA. Not sure why spending on a 1 year deal would impact that but maybe money saved today is money spent tomorrow for Rick.

I’m pretty sure he said they’d have money for mid-season acquisitions, so zero reason they couldn’t afford Puig on a one year deal.

By no means a big "Bruce guy" but I think he provides valuable content on the radio for aging sports radio fans. Now... on twitter... that is a different story. 🤢

Why are we even worried about Bruce and fake Steve Cishek said?  Bruce hasn't been right about much, and the other guy...well.

Except the game has passed him by, and he lacks basic knowledge of how roster management works today.  And that is literally his job.  He's awful.

Jerry said he is impatient trying to win, so he needs to act like it and man all the way the heck up. Money should not be an issue right now. Especially for guys on a one year deal who could really help us win games.

Hopefully "maxed out" means "for this offseason".

Rick Hahn said we have some money for the deadline. Maybe JR wants to see how the team does for the first half of the season first?

I would guess maybe they had a budget for the beginning of this year - taking into account potential mid season adds and further FA and arb commitments in the future - and maybe they're near that ceiling. I doubt it prevented them from signing Brock Holt though.

It's hard to say because Bruce has no idea what's happening.

My first thought was that they could just be maxed out for this year. They have played this game in the past where they'll spend if the fans show up at the park. So, for right now, it's on the fans to support the product as it exists today with the thought being that the additional income will be put on the field.
