Hell, just give us a damn dumpster dive signing already so we can at least cease being bored to the point of continuing to doing this to ourselves.

Sounds like Shields II. Jerry is cheap because one Covid and two because Sox fans don't support their team sufficiently. His way of jabbing back over the cost of business. Otherwise he doesn't give a hoot.

Dodgers are paying Price 16m... say they agree to pay 10m and we put in 6. Possible then?

Why do we keep doing this ?🙄

Because it’s either this or we talk about the consistency of our dog’s poop on a daily basis until pitchers and catchers report.

isn't Kopech due to pitch for the sox this year?  Giolito, Lynn, Keuchel, Cease, Corpse until Kopech

what's the deal with wanting another pitcher

do we think Cease and Kopech can't be serviceable 4 and 5s?

Kopech almost certainly will be on an innings limit coming back from TJ (technically he already came back last year but after skipping the season I don't see more than 110 innings for him this season).

Also there could be an injury and it is unclear how much cease improved.

It could work without another starter but it would be quite some risk

They could be. The 2020 White Sox in a 60 game season, used 9 starters. They are going to have to have some depth especially since every pitcher is increasing his work load.

Keuchel is due to fall off a cliff, Giolito or Lynn could get hurt and Lopez, Cease and Kopech are unproven. Plus serious teams are looking at 6 man rotations since last season was so short. If you’re serious about winning, you spend the money to short up your pitching staff.

It has taken a few weeks, but I've come to terms with the fact that Rodon was our last pitcher of significance and anyone else will be of our brad penny variety.

Boston is already paying the Dodgers a significant percentage.

If the Dodgers will absorb some cash, Price could be close to "budget."

So that means the White Sox would have to send something of significance back to the Dodgers for Price. No thank you.

I'm leaning towards that thinking as well.  I'm holding out hope that its not true.  If reports/rumors were true, the Sox did show some interest in SP trades, in FA's Richards & Kluber and offered Wainwright.  So it does show they realized they needed another SP.  I don't want to believe that the Rodon signing changed that. I keep thinking how could it?  However, it seems that it might have.  But I'm still clinging to the hope that they're just waiting for ST evaluations and/or FA demands to come down a little to complete another move/signing.

So that makes you a Klingon, clinging to that hope and I'm usually right there with you but Captain Kirk/ Picard, aka JR , phasered me into non existence.

I realize how many are in love with Kopech's arm, but he hasn't pitched in two years. He also has next to no major league experience. Serviceable? Perhaps. But right now he is a huge question mark. It would be nice to have another starter.

Since you appear to have connections, can you tell Jerry to stop being a tightwad and open up the checkbook to improve his championship caliber baseball team?

Penny was a minor league guy! Hahn pumped him up to no end.
