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

    A trade like that might make sense to be honest. If the Sox are at the deadline cruising in first place, but have some starting pitching depth issues. A Kopech for Yu Darvish trade might win you a World Series.

    Reinsdorf and Hahn: what happened?

    We're probably paying for the Julio Cruz contract. They don't want to put all their eggs in one basket.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    Yeah and in a normal year they probably don't choke the division away in the last 2 weeks. For Hendriks, I don't think we will get him. It just feels like whenever free agent pursuits drag on, the player ends up signing elsewhere.

    Lynn. 2 years 33 mil. Option for 3rd year @18 mil, with a 7 mil buyout. So it would be 40 mil guaranteed. I suspect he would bite on this offer give his age, weight, the uncertainty of the pandemic and his troubles getting a deal the last time he was as free agent. Because if he has a rough 2021, he will be right back there again. For Giolito - I'll go along with CWS's numbers.

    Trevor Bauer v. Lance Lynn

    Of course that would be fine. The part that wouldn't be fine would be Uncle Jerry being to cheap to re-sign him after helping lead the Sox to a title.
  6. I looked at Dunning as likely a 3 or 4, but possibly between a 2 and 5. Its hard to envision them wanting to completely get rid of him a year from now. That's just a bad take.
  7. I like adding Lynn. But what are they going to do a year from now when Lynn and Dunning are gone? I guess they're gambling that Kopech and Crochet will be ready then.

    Rumor: Sox discussing deal with Cubs/Rangers

    The cost would go through the roof if the Sox dont take Heyward

    Rumor: Sox discussing deal with Cubs/Rangers

    Loaded rotations win in the playoffs. If you can get Darvish cheap via taking Heyward (with Cubs eating $$$), and can also pull off a Lance Lynn deal, the Sox are stacked going in to 2021.

    Rumor: Sox discussing deal with Cubs/Rangers

    I have no idea if Darvish is really on the market. But I've said before, I'd probably rather check in on Kyle Hendricks. He is World Series tested and Jerry would love his contract. Who says no...Kopech + 2 midlevel prospects for Hendricks and Bryant?

    MLB Winter Meetings Thread

    I was saying I do want all those guys, just not Gallo. I mean, yeah if you ask about Darvish or Hendricks, you're going to pay a lot. That's ok. It's time for the Sox to take a swing for the fences.

    MLB Winter Meetings Thread

    Don't want Gallo. Gross. Lynn or Darvish, heck yeah! And ask about Hendricks while talking to the Cubs.

    Official: McCann is a Met, $40/4 years

    Anyone who still says Grandal is a top 2 catcher. I would have to assume they read stats, but rarely actually watch baseball games.

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

    I agree with most of this. Though I wouldn't call Cease's 2020 horrible. Just a bit disappointing. I'm very happy we have a new pitching coach to work with him. The tools are there.

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

    The Sox have to get someone near the TOR. Bauer is probably going to be a tough one with the Mets out there wanting to spend gobs of money. I have a hard time imagining Jerry outbidding them. But I hope we somehow do land him. That would make the Sox among the World Series favorites for sure. Otherwise, give Jed a call and see if they are interested in moving Hendricks or Darvish. I know the rumor is they are aren't doing a full rebuild, but you never know.

    Official: McCann is a Met, $40/4 years

    McCann at half the price of Grandal would of been the better route as we look at this a year later. But that ship has sailed. Grandal is hard to figure out. His defense gets high grades from the analytics people, but often fails the eye test. And now I understand why we heard these negative things from Dodger and Brewer fans about his defense. He makes some real basic errors and often times has trouble catching breaking balls. But he also brings a lot to the table - particularly offensively, and the pitch framing.

    Offseason Targets

    Man, they've come so far in the rebuild and appear to be so close. It would be such a shame if they cheaped out this late in the game. And I agree that I'd be uneasy handing the keys to DH to Vaughn. He needs to show some success in the minor leagues first IMO.

    Len Kasper is new White Sox radio play by play announcer

    This is good. Too bad he isnt replacing Benetti on tv.

    And you have a kangaroo? lol I'm good with Alec

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

    Manhattan is awesome. But you would need double for the crazy cost of living expenses.

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

    Whoa! I don't know about that man, but hey, I love your optimism. Reminds me of the Manny Machado winter. Jerry surprises us every couple of decades. We're overdue.

    Kris Bryant

    I would probably do it, but only if they are unable to sign Springer.

    The Blake Snell Thread

    OK you guys are splitting hairs a bit more than I had in my mind when I worried about 'losing the trade'. If it was close and pushed you over the edge, of course it would be worthwhile. My bigger concern is that the Rays front office usually makes the right move - and if they're all of the sudden wanting to move Snell - I'm suspicious as to why. I know they like to recycle their assets, but I would be concerned that there might be more to this from their point of view.

    The Blake Snell Thread

    The Sox don't have the payroll might to make a Sale type trade, where you expect to ultimately lose the trade value-wise. They gotta hold on tight to cheap controllable talent.
