    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    Chatwood and cash from Cubs for Fulmer. He's owed $13 million in his last year of a deal, let's throw the Cubs a bone and pay $5 million and let them pay $8 million for a guy to pitch for us. His stuff should play in the AL and he can start if needed. Anyone know anything about this Austin Brice guy the Marlins designated for assignment? I'm also down for bringing Nova back at $5 million. Never enough arms.

    Free Agent relief pitcher ideas besides Betances

    What about Tyler Chatwood and/or Kimbrel from the Cubs if the Cubs keep 50% of their salaries and we give up nothing prospects? Chatwood 1/6.25 and Kimbrel at 3/24 might be buy lows worth taking. Chatwood has the stuff to pitch in the AL and could be another starting option in a pinch. If Kimbrel really is washed, you can still probably flip him to an NL team by eating 50% at any point I would think. Also do the Marlins have any relievers who would be worth going after with Zach Collins? Send him back to Miami where he raked in college to give them a local connection that they could sorely use down there.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Would there be a price that you would want Heyward/Darvish from the Cubs if the we got them for next to nothing? Would rather help the Cubs over the Red Sox if we are being serious about winning a World Series in the next 5 years.

    Sox and Sawks to see if the Price is Right

    Baseball tonight mentioning adding 2 SPs, Price + Benintendi for Prospects White Sox WILL add 2 starting pitchers to front of rotation this offseason.

    Sox considering a trade, per Chuck.

    Arenado became available yesterday afternoon. Would Vaughn, Madrigal, Dahlquist & Thompson get it done? Could something along those lines be this interesting offer?

    Tsutsugo - UPDATE: To Rays

    All 3 of Price, Eovaldi and Benintendi and $27 Million for Carson Fulmer. Use that $120 they were about to spend on Wheeler for 5 seasons and use it over 3 years instead for 2 starters in Price and Eovaldi. I call it...plan E (as in plan Emergency). You're welcome, Hahn.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Who wouldn't Theo part with to get Colome? Instead he throws 3/43 at Kimbrel an gets this. Does anyone else think with Colome this team is in the playoffs or at least in the lead at this point?

    Draft Day 3 Thread, rounds 11-40 (Tracker in OP)

    Kelvin Maldonado trains at 1st Round Training near Bradenton/Sarasota (technically Ellenton) Florida. Former White Sox player Lastings Milledge is part owner. They are very responsive on social media (Instagram, Facebook, etc) if you have any questions on him specifically.

    2018 White Sox draft discussions thread

    Haven't seen much of Singer but I'm getting a Carson Fulmer vibe... Can someone explain the similarities/differences of those two in college?

    White Sox have shown interest in Machado

    QUOTE (ChiSox59 @ Dec 14, 2017 -> 11:40 AM) That's more than a calculated risk. Max I'd do is something like pick 2 of Rutherford/Fulmer/Cease/Dunning, and a less regarded guy like Jordan Stephens, Clarkin, or Puckett is the final piece. Anything more than that it just doesn't add up. I agree with the max that you would give up but that doesn't match the news (possibly fake) that we had the best offer. Many other teams would have definitely been willing to beat that for even 1 year of Machado.

    White Sox have shown interest in Machado

    It could have been an offer like Timmy Anderson, Giolito and Fulmer, which would be the best offer likely out there. It is a calculated risk like Rick said, we have the depth to rebound pitching wise and lose the risk on Timmy. We would also be "cashing" in on an early contract Rick signed like always. I wouldn't like that trade. Or even two of those guys for a rental and showcase of the greatness that is WhiteSoxdom, but I could see something like it happening.

    Rule 5 draft preview

    QUOTE (bmags @ Dec 14, 2017 -> 09:55 AM) Yeah definitely concerned about losing to prop up our rule 5 position give me a break. I did not say I wanted to lose for better Rule 5 position. We also could have traded basically nothing to the Phillies for him anyway. Drink some coffee, stay warm and calm down.
