White Sox twitter talked big boy stuff about multiple championships. The organization needs to back that talk up big time. 

They are champion talkers.

He definitely knows front office people.  He started covering the Sox more last season.  I trust him on this.

It aligns with what this team does too.

I do as well, which is my only reason for hope for Springer.

If we are out there lowballing players again,  it isn't hard to put 2 and 2 together.

So what I said is correct then? Status quo is for the sky to be falling. Due to the sox never coming through in free agency. I'm confused at your point.

How are you confused? I already stated that there is every reason to be upset and expect this to be true. And you seem to be acting as if we are being unreasonable by feeling that way.

What other point do you need or are you looking for? What on earth are you confused about?

Every reason to be upset? Lol get a grip. This team is loaded with talent and payroll flexibility. Let's see it play out.

It isn't really flexibility if you won't use it

What is payroll flexibility when a big portion of it is spent on a bunch of trash? Mazara, Gio Gonzalez, Encarnacion, Cishek come out about 1 year of Machado who they missed out on because they didn’t wanted to keep flexibility.

So you agree that sox fans have every reason to be upset right now? Or, should we maybe just chill out a little bit and enjoy the ride? See where this goes. Sox are in a great position right now.

Did they not have a 125 million dollar deal on the table for Wheeler in the same off-season that resulted in those 4 being signed? An offer that was top of the market but fell through for other reasons.

The Sox put themselves in a position to compete. So far, it's going according to plan. I tend to want to have fun with it and see how this plays out rather than assume everything sucks. But to each their own I guess.

I mean the could have not signed one of those bums and added 5-10 million to the Wheeler deal.

That's just bad business. You don't just keep tacking on dollars until he signs.

But, like I said, status quo around here is the sky is falling. And you all are just making my argument for me.

And the prior year they spent $21 million on Nova, Jay and Alonso.  And the $9 million on Alonso was a Machado attractor.
If they can do that on a team that isn't winning, they can pony up for one of the big dogs for this window.

I hereby declare the entirety of PHT to be a safe space to bloviate about how the TLR hiring sucks until he's dismissed, resigns or retires.

The sad (but awesome) thing is that he's going to win a World Series before any of those three things happen.

David Dahl non-tendered by the Rockies would be well worth the $2.5 ish 'show me' deal as platoon partner w/Engel.. He is a LH hitting bomber who was an All-Star in 2019, 26 yrs old and injury prone but the real deal if/when healthy.

Why is this thread open? I'm serious.

If posters get ridiculed for suggesting the Sox have a shot to sign Springer and aren't doom and gloom. Then why even have a thread to discuss it?

This is a really good fucking point, and I suggest that there's a catch all thread to discuss bullshit rumors about top of the market free agents being involved with the White Sox until Jerry either signs one, or is no longer the chairman of the White Sox. 

It's been 24 years since Jerry signed a top of the market free agent from outside the org. He's done it exactly twice in his 40 year tenure as chairman. (Fisk, Belle)

The Sox could’ve offered Wheeler $150 million and he still goes to Philly.

This team might win the fucking American League without additions and I feel like everyone is mad. It’s absolutely absurd.
