Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

Am I the only one that doesn't really want Cruz on this team? Yes, he's been ridiculous and very good (especially against the Sox), but he's 40 years old. At some point he's not going to be able to keep this up, right? It would be so White Sox to bring him him only to see him completely fall off a cliff in production. I wouldn't HATE if they got him for the DH, and on paper this looks great in the lineup, but man, this feels so EE all over again.

There just isn't a lot of downside with the move. The only issue I could possibly see if Cruz is Edwin levels of bad.......TLR continues to play the veteran over someone like Vaughn who is "ready" but even that is sort of stretch. Cruz isn't getting more than a one year deal so there is very little risk involved. 

I personally don't think they sign Nelson Cruz, and I'd much rather them sign another SP, but I'd be all for it if it happened.

That's an absolute meat grinder and the best lineup in the American League

Paying for an older DH near the end of their career has to work sometime though right? 

If at first you don't suceed.......

Pretty much any Dominican player. I think a lot of us are assuming it's Cruz because he connected him to the Sox earlier in the week

My thoughts exactly.  He can't kill Sox pitching from our dugout.  If he fall off a cliff, then at least he kept Vaughn down for a month or two. 

He's gonna cost at least $10 million.  You don't make a move like this for the Jeff Blauser factor or because he's a good clubhouse guy.  He better hit.

Gomez is a pawn for the Domincan players and their agents.

Ozuna makes no sense to be honest assuming he gets multiple year.  Also is there where I throw out the crazy idea of Cruz at DH and then trading Vaughn and more for Woodruff?

Can anyone share the original Cruz/Sox tweet from earlier this week?

(That's Cruz in the video, obviously)

Yup...adding a higher end starter would probably be the more prudent move financially, but I won’t be complaining if they want to stack an already strong with another elite hitter.
