    Instead of these worthless bars in the upper deck, build a dispensary/coffeeshop where fans can buy and use their weed. It's a win/win. Sox make more money, more fans can tolerate the product they put on the field by ingesting products into their bodies.

    A weedtender outfield spot sounds dope. Just not on the 500 level...

    The Sox did have a terrible offseason.  No doubt.  

    But pointing to Abreu and the fact that they didn't hit for power last season as the main reasons displays a lack of understanding of the larger problem with the roster construction.  

    Key players staying healthy, getting better defensively and getting more left handed were far more important than paying a declining Abreu $19M AAV, or whatever it was, to block fixing the defense and left handed issues.  Love Pito; wish he was a Sox for life.  But it was the right decision.  

    Yep. And as several of us have said...Vaughn will outproduce Pito in power numbers over the next 3 years and is cost controlled. The big issue here is that Eloy sucks in the field and so the roster was squeezed. Blame Hahn for that.

  3. I thought about this deeper. When you scrape for discounts, reclamation projects and small commitments...you get the bottom of the barrel. This whole situation is a product of Jerry Reinsdorf's cheap ass reluctancy to give out big deals and you end up with big pieces of s%*# like Clevinger. Window was never open and won't even unlock until the man behind the curtain croaks.

    And that’s when it will be. Even if it’s that little, that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be working at it.

    This is what I see here. The only caveat to this is if Colas stinks. then Eloy WILL be starting in RF until he kills himself again. 

     

  5. Everyone is quick to blame the Sox front office for this...I think the bigger picture here is how awful the MLB truly is. Bauer process played out awful, nearly 2 decades of steroids mishandling, Astros getting a hand slap for admitted cheating – why do any of us love this sport ran by either morons or just plain greed? Gosh I hate this scenario, MLB, the White Sox and MOST importantly that piece of trash human if he is indeed guilty of any allegation here (he is).

    Wouldn't at all shock me to see Lopez in the top 5 of AL Cy voting in one of the next two years.

    I'll take that bet...He wont. But getting the prospects also make minny win this trade. They are better, but that top of the lineup takes a beating without Arraez and when the annual Buxton multi month DL vaca starts

     There are very minimal rewards in life if one never takes any risk.  Any player can get hurt badly during the first 3 years of any big contract. Correa is still only 28. There is a good chance that this injurt doesn't truly hamper his play until he is well into his 30s. 

    Absolutely. No insurance would definitely be a hangup for many teams. High risk, high reward indeed. If Cohen backed out... it's risky....that dude doesn't GAF about money often

  8. Reasonable back end to that deal for Twins...makes me confident that Boras KNOWS his ankle is hanging on a tendon and had NO opt outs. 

    With all this physical history...zero chance this is getting insured as well, correct? What a devastating contract that would be if he gets hurt badly in any of the first 3 years. 

  9. 33.3 mil a season. He helps make them better no doubt...but I wonder how much left they have to spend. Also...isn't it freaking weird that they didn't sign anyone else after he got those high priced contracts that fizzled...almost like they knew his medicals were bad...

  10. Segura's deal is 3 years with a 10 million option or 2 mil buyout. Not that great of a deal anymore for his age and declining bat. Roll with the youngins and sign Duvall as RF insurance and power. One of Romy/Sosa/Rodriguez is going to be league average, just hope it doesn't take 2 seasons to figure out whom.

    Regardless holy hell has Atlanta been good at negotiations. Look at how they were able to lock up players vs Nats across the division. Yeesh.

    Atlanta and White Sox both have an amazing culture of early contracts that give generational wealth opportunities...but definitely benefits the teams' financial ledgers. Braves difference is that they are much more aggressive in getting the talent in whatever avenue best fixes the roster (Trades, FA overspends, Farm risks), while the Sox are much more conservative in their pursuits and more about just getting "deals" with what they have for JR cost certainty
