Because he's a solid #2/#3 SP who can sit comfortably behind Giolito.

Also because this organization has a long history of standing behind and either directly enabling or turning the other way and allowing oft-despised loudmouth players and members of the front office/management/coaching staff who want to make scenes in the media.

Also because Bauer, who has never pitched like a true ace in a 200+IP season but still wants to be paid like one, should probably sign a 1-year deal and "prove it" inside of a situation that is most amenable to him.  The Sox have an excellent bullpen, an excellent offense, and excellent young MLB-ready or near-MLB-ready SP depth behind their rotation veterans, making for a situation overall that should give Bauer a lot of protection and help him pad up his stats going into FA.

Also because unlike Cincy and Cleveland, Chicago is in the spotlight, and Chicago has an easy path to the playoffs, and there's no better segue into FA than a quality performance in the playoffs coming off of a quality season, for a team that has been nationally touted since the season began.

I think Bauer should sign this deal:

$15M guaranteed in 2021 with a 2-year Mutual Option for $90M ($45x2) attached to a $15M buyout that is activated if either side declines, and which can also be paid out as $3M per year over 5 years from 2022-2026.

PS if the real Bauer actually signs this deal then I should get to **** his agent.  Thanks.

lol thankfully that word has about a zillion different meanings.

Regardless Bauer isn't pulling out now.  He's already balls deep into this process.

How do you think Boras both gets so many players to sign with him, and routinely gets players the best deals?

Trevor Bauer already knows why. He's a student of the game. He loves baseball. He is focused on winning and improving himself and the team. He wants a ring and so does everyone associated with the team with the possible exception of the owner who likes to pretend he wants to win but is actually more focused on profits and doing things his way.

As was said in another post, everything aligns perfectly to have Bauer on the Sox except  he wants to be paid according to his talents and the Sox don't do that for pitchers who want big money for more than 3 or 4 years. AKA the Reinsdorf Way.

We are still waiting for the Sox to sign a free agent who has more than $100M contract in 35 years of ownership.

We’re the only fan base that could have a 69 page thread about Trevor Bauer speculations, in honor of Bauer.

Heck, if the site owner allows it, we could go up to 420.

We can do this.

He may not sign with anyone til it reaches 420, even though we have absolutely no reason to talk about him until proven otherwise. Maybe a Bauer Tweet about how good we are looking with some monsterously good talent.

But the Sox were making an effort on Machado  not so with Bauer. I'd have to invite him over when he's in town . Just him ,me an @hi8is ( the other Trevor) talking baseball , playing records and having a beer.

hi8is isn't @NotTrevor.

Unless you're saying that both you and hi8is are both named Trevor, in which case I learned something.
