Sox resign Rodon 1 yr /3m official, Vargas DFA

Recommended Posts

I just hope sitting on the market with no offers is a sobering wake up call for Carlos (if the rest of his career hasnt already been). Just put your head down, work hard, and be happy with any role you’re able to get. Whatever pick he once was is irrelevant, just another guy at this point....if not he’s going to find himself out of baseball sooner rather than later.

Cool bring Rodon back. Katz better be a miracle worker or we're in trouble with the rotation.

Sad but true.

I don't think there is or was anything wrong with Rodons attitude.  He was just always hurt.

Rodon is exactly the dude I’d want if this were 2017 and they were trying to find reclamation projects but not in 2021 when this team is trying to win a World Series, let’s move on from this idea please? You sign Rodon you’re gonna have to sign more depth, it was never an issue of whether he has stuff but whether he can stay healthy or not, re-signing him would accomplish nothing but it’s very WhiteSox

Rodon took Jake Peavys mantle for “white Sox pitcher with a reputation of bulldog on the mound that actually is never on the mound and really just complains a lot”

Glad he could be back IMO 

I think his wife talked him out of an extension lol. If he can stay healthy for two months it would be headline news. He also wants to start maybe in Schaumburg.

It’s strange right.  The general pessimism doesn’t apply to Katz, SOLELY because the hate for Cooper and his dinosaur status is greater.  The pitchforks are still fresh with the blood of the Cooper

This is simply not true. Yes, Cooper needed to go, but the excitement with Katz is we have actual evidence that his coaching style works. What he did with Giolito was a huge factor in him going from the literal worst starting pitcher in the league to one of the best. The general pessimism doesn't apply to Katz because there is legitimate hope that he can do the same thing with Cease and Lopez.

This is one of my least favorite threads ever.

I have no urge to see him in a White Sox uniform again.

I am extremely biased, but I think Carlos is going to have a great year. People forget how dominant this guy is when he’s healthy. I saw many many of his games at NC State and still can’t believe his career has unfolded the way it has...but it’s not over yet!

Hopefully he’s had a big attitude adjustment and is willing to make changes. No more excuses.

He wasn't dominant in the big leagues even when healthy.

Hopefully his free agency was a huge wakeup call.

Them bringing him back really does give me the impression that they felt Cooper was holding back a lot of their arms from reaching their full potential. I don’t mind Rodon, but I do hope it’s a minor league deal.

Yeah...don't really like that Rodon is back. 

Agreed. Unless its a minor league deal with no opt out date during spring training and he's sticks around as depth.

I love it.  He’s going to be motivated to get a multi-year deal.  His stuff was good when he returned, which is better than we can say for some of these options.

James was all over this. Him and Harold continue to be the best by far.

I’m not optimistic about Rodon suddenly figuring it out and being healthy for an extended stretch, but I’m glad they added another arm to the mix.  Hope they add Folty as well and then let them and Lopez battle for the 5th starter role in spring training.  Not ideal obviously, but better than an older dumpster dive who lacks stuff.
