Why bother at this stage?

edit: that said, I trust Hahn at these types of things.

This is the stage where you get an Adam Eaton/Chris Sale/Jose Quintana type deal done.

They could have locked Beckham up after 14 homers and 28 doubles in four months too. Glad they didn't.

I think Anderson is a good player though.

I feel better about Anderson than Beckham

An extension could prove to be a great move right now for the White Sox. It helps Anderson get paid now, but also makes sure that he is cost controlled for the foreseeable future

The other side of the coin is that Chris Sale would have just hit the free agent market in the best market ever for free agents, which means no Moncada, Kopech and company to show for him.

And there is a 0% chance the Sox could have acquired Lopez, Giolitto, and Dane Dunning for Eaton if he wasn't signed to such a team friendly contract.

I like Timmy Anderson, but anyone who says that they feel better about him than they did about Beckham after his rookie year is lying. I remember everyone on this board creaming in their jeans when Harold Reynolds listed him as a future HOF'er during Spring Training that next year.

This would be a great move. Buy out his pre-arbitration years, and add a couple years onto the back end of the deal. It's good for both sides and Anderson is a core piece that would've probably been extended at some point anyway. Hahn is a wizard at these sort of things.

Yep, Eaton would be 2 years away from FA instead of 4.

Can't argue with that.

I was comparing Sox first round shortstops (infielders) with four months of major league time. Not debating the potential value of locking up a guy early.

Anderson has some great tools and can do some things Beckham couldn't. But nobody would have blinked in 2010 if the Sox signed him to a team friendly deal.

Based on all the other crazy cheap deals Hahn has gotten young players to sign....

8 yrs/$60M?

If their internal metrics (including the StatCast data) say that his defense is here to stay, then lock him up. If he's a +10 run defender (above average) at SS he could hit 260/290/410 and still be a 3 WAR player.

I am torn on this a gamble either way. Not against it though.
