    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    The Lance Lynn trade wasn't even a month ago.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    I enjoy baseball's offseason dragging on. If we had one week of free agency, then 3 months of silence, that would suck IMO.

    Aaron is a credible Bears insider.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Just asking - is anyone concerned that some NL Central pitchers' numbers are fluffed up because these pitchers faced garbage offenses most nights?

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    I don't know. One wouldn't think so. But on the other hand, the whole NL Central seems to be moving backwards. I would include Kopech for Woodruff. Not Vaughn or Crochet though.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    We don't know if Q would even sign here. I mean, even if he does well, if there's no injuries and Kopech comes up at some point, he would be squeezed out to the pen. He might rather find a spot with a more secure spot in the rotation.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    I think the Woodruff stuff comes from the Not Steve Cishek dude on twitter, who probably has been right more often than most of the other Sox 'insiders'. People probably figure if they considered it last season, they still might?

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Gray scares me after how he sucked in New York. Could he be one of those guys that is better off on low pressure teams and towns? But I like that the Sox still seem to be aggressive and going for it. Sounds like they're just waiting for something to pop.

    Joe Musgrove Thread

    I'm not so sure they wouldn't move either of them. I think Crochet is less likely to be moved than Kopech and Cease at this point. But if you're going for it and you trade for a good starting pitcher, you're going to have to give up something that stings a bit. I've said this name before...what about Kyle Hendricks? Who knows if the Cubs would move him with where they're at now. He's World Series tested. He's as consistent as any starter in baseball. He's on a nice contract, with 3 years and 42 mil left, plus an option year (not sure of the terms). He would probably fit in as our #2 behind Giolito, and ahead of Lynn and Keuchel.

    I wonder if the Sox would consider calling the Cubs up about Zach Davies? He could fill in nicely for that extra starter they need, and they're only on the hook for this coming season, if Jerry is worried about longterm commitments. He makes 8.5 mil in 2021 it looks like.

    Happy New Year everybody!

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    Sad thing is - he turns 85 in less than 2 months. Does he understand he can't take it with him? Just flippin' go for it for once.

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    He seems to think one of the 4 lottery tickets the Cubs got back is equal to Kopech?? Weird

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    It's too bad the Sox don't have the same aggressiveness from ownership. Can you imagine a rotation of Giolito/Darvish/Lynn/Keuchel,Cease or Kopech. My God...

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    You gotta admire San Diego's aggressiveness. The Clevinger trade has a setback, so they go and get an even better #1.

    Joe Musgrove Thread

    Giving Lopez another shot in the rotation makes me cringe. I mean, it probably will happen when injuries occur at some point in 2021. But that's the only path that is acceptable to me. The Sox need to get a #4/5 starter, period. Be it Quintana, Musgrove or someone else. I would worry that if it's Quintana or someone else on the free agent market, that might take away the dollars that could otherwise be used on a shutdown closer. And I keep thinking back to 2016, where the Indians and Cubs rode shutdown pens to the World Series. We shouldn't underestimate what a killer pen could do for the Sox.

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    Speaking of Ed Howard. I wanted him over Crochet. Time will tell how that pans out, but it sure feels like I was wrong. I'm glad we have Crochet.

    Joe Musgrove Thread

    I think you're over-valuing Stiever if you think he will bring back something better than Musgrove - who IMO is fine as a #4/#5 starter.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    I think we've seen this act play out before. If Hendriks liked the Sox offer, he probably would of signed by now. Hopefully the Sox are prepared for the backup plan when he signs elsewhere.

    Since 1990 who is the Sox 2nd best player?

    Yeah...that's why I went with Sale. They didn't ask who had the best career with the White Sox. They asked who was the 2nd best player. It's Chris Sale and it's not even close.

    Cincinnati Reds Fire Sale Thread

    I wanted Castellanos bad last winter. But after starting 2020 hot, he crashed pretty bad last year. But I know it was a weird pandemic year...

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    Eh, I just take it as he just enjoys trolling on the internet. To me it's mostly fun and harmless, but to each his own. And I'll save name-calling like being a 'giant douche' for the wife beating types of the sports world.

    Owners would like to delay season until vaccine

    I don't blame them for wanting to wait. If the season starts say in July, the pandemic is probably starting to wind down and you have paying fans at the game. Everyone makes money then.

    You have $30m to complete the roster...

    The Sox are pretty loaded for position players already. Especially if you get the hoped for growth from players like Eloy and Robert this coming season. If they come up short anywhere compared to other playoff caliber teams, its probably in the starting staff. And the Nats just showed us in 2019 how a dominant top heavy staff can be ridden to a title.
