Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

I think we are selling ourselves short if we don't sign a real left handed DH for the year. 

I'm hoping one of Joc, Schwarber or Brantley is still on Rick's radar. Gotta get somebody who can play the OF. Sox have two injury prone guys in the outfield starting (Eloy, Eaton) and Leury Garcia is probably the most injury prone player out of them all. You can not have Adam Engel getting consistent ABs if (really that "if" should be "when" at this point) those guys go down.

Next steps IMO:

  • Sign Hendriks to a 3/$39 deal
  • Sign Richards to a 1/$11M deal
  • Extend Giolito at 5/$75M
  • Extend Lynn at 2/$40M

I like this plan except I just don't see the appeal of Richards over Q.  Their career numbers are very similar (Q is arguably slightly better), Q is younger, and Q is WAY more durable.

Hendriks is an interesting name.  The one thing that stands out about him is that his stuff is completely different than the rest of the back of that pen.  He gives you a completely different look than Bummer, who is different than Crochet, who is different than Foster, who is different than Heuer etc.  Hopefully it doesn't allow hitters to get comfortable as we roll through the pen with these guys.

Yea could we make a one stop shop thread with just tweets of White Sox rumblings/rumors/concrete things. I scour all these threads for that stuff and ignore the banter, no offense. Everything just gets off topic.

Be nice to have an Aussie on team, free Fosters for everyone!🍺

Australians don't actually drink fosters. They just dump it on the rest of the world

If you go to the Eaton thread, we are talking downtown Chicago lunch spots.

The Sox can change all of this by signing Bauer, Hendriks and Joc/Schwarber. Just saying....

Get ready for disappointment if that is what you’re expecting. 😆

Nightengale is really hammering home the notion that the Sox are pursuing Hendriks hard. Love to see it. Heuer, crochet, bummer, and Hendriks would be lethal in the postseason. Assuming one gets hurt or has an off year, you still have a dynamic 7-8-9 inning reliever group, with guys who can throw more than 1 inning.

Does Hendriks do that for other players/teams?  He might just be a serial liker

It’s almost a foregone conclusion that we sign Hendricks. I was worried about the Phillies til they are looking at slashing payroll and how much better the Sox are.

Hey, I am trying to keep it on topic by still being extremely mad online about it.

Hendriks and Schwarber.

So what happens to Schwarber when Vaughn comes up 25 games into the season?
