  1. Solving problems with intentional actions. According to quantum theory, there is a universe out there where this type of thing is done by the Sox
  2. https://ontapsportsnet.com/white-sox/mlb-winter-meetings-2022-chicago-white-sox-preview-rick-hahn until proven otherwise, 100% this
  3. IMHO, a top level prospect deal for Reynolds requires more years of control. And people are overpaying with their multi-player offers.
  4. This is obviously about his contract situation, his agent hoping that someone in the organization is interested in another team’s possible offer. So gin up some offers. But it seems like a hail mary pass by Reynolds.
  5. Give it 5 years, then we can move on him like a b****
  6. I’m keeping all the left handed bats that are fortunately still in the organization. That being said, I just read the Pirates are not moving to make a trade happen right now.
  7. Ok, but he’s gonna need to get paid once they empty the minors
  8. You mean besides Aaron Judge? All the usual suspects of which we are wasting our time talking about. Maybe I am cynical, but I think they are all in on Colas, and that’s that.
  9. If you want optimism, give specifics why based on what’s been happening, optimism is appropriate instead. Gaslighting a loyal fanbase thats been taken advantage of that lets off steam as a result is what’s cringy. Ok I’ll play along. This is fine.
  10. forgot hubris, and correctly left out intelligence
  11. Personally, I don't want to hear anything he has to say. Sell the team.
  12. Absolutely. I mean, instead of rando floor oriented college pitcher every time, try a catcher once in awhile. Or a high school kid. I like what Mike Shirley has been doing however. I don’t know they’re doing signing international catchers, but I see a couple guys in the system with some juice. Hell its all a crapshoot. Im just riding all the first baseman and DHs like whipped mules until they leave and people stop projecting Sheets in the outfield
  13. Well that’s witty. Dont quit man, stay in the game. The draft is a crap shoot. You can do it.
  14. Might want to think about drafting them high before first baseman and DHs.
  15. If the players union rank and file ever believed this is how the Sox actually operated, they could never field a team on the South Side.
  16. I don’t think so either really. But he might get more than a one year deal. and I doubt the Sox wanted to commit to that for either guy. By the way I would be just as surprised if Cueto did get more than a year than signing for the amount stated. But from opinion I am reading, his potential deal is being talked about like that
  17. The way I see it we have a DH and a first baseman. Platoon them whatever fashion is required based on the pitching. It doesn’t need to be everyday remedy to play them out of position. The Sox are the only team that thinks the solution to outfield s%*# is to play their stiffs. Complicating it all is nobody knows what to do with their overpaid stiff catcher. There is another way, they have to find it. If they get forced by circumstances that’s one thing. They have to plan for the season much differently than projecting a first baseman in the outfield again under any foreseeable vision. Sheets covering for roster fails is NOT a fallback option for a responsible organization.
  18. Not ideal. I’ll say. This team is not unfucked until they fix the fucking roster ffs. God dammit Sheets in the outfield again? Then we have the continued list of *reasons* why first baseman are playing all over the diamond again, and why it has to be that way.
  19. We’re missing a lot of scouting information that teams may be relying on for his evaluation.
  20. I mean, considering the names out there we’ve been talking about for the spending, I’d prefer just to use call ups to fill the holes. I media gave me better options, we can have a different discussion of spending preferences.
  21. This actually gives me more hope. 8 million really tampered my excitement response if that was all he could attract. Good news.
  22. Agree a lot. But the Sox are banking in a lower price tag imo more than upside. Which appears not very much believable considering the price tag. I like Cueto here, because he’s been getting by by being a pitcher more than with stuff, which could be easier to replicate than finding old pre-surgery stuff.
