  1. But also this has been written about forever, not to mention that in not 1, but 2 different classes, no one apparently outbid the Sox. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/33463929/needs-done-why-mlb-international-draft-such-big-deal%3fplatform=amp
  2. Hence the stories of teams negotiating with 13 and 14 year olds.
  3. This is why the manager hire is so vital. We know that Yoan is in there somewhere. Ricky found him. Tony lost him. Now it's up to Pedro to dig him out
  4. Almost every other team had also spent their next allotment as well. Who could have offered him more during that period? I would be curious about your source here, because I never saw anything to this effect.
  5. This is not accurate. He waited until the next signing period because no teams had much money left in the one where he was declared a free agent. He made multiples more money by waiting to sign, not because there was some vast conspiracy to stop him from signing early.
  6. See this is bullshit. It isn't that Sox fans don't WANT their team to spend like this, or think they CAN'T. It's that White Sox fans KNOW that this franchise WON'T spend like this, so it really could be one bad contract that fucks this franchise for a decade. Stating it like this is a slap in the face to the intelligence of White Sox fans. Just because we don't come out and give the long explanation every time that a contract is discussed doesn't mean that Sox fans don't get it.
  7. Seriously. Just because this can't get posted enough, Elvis Andrus's 2017-2021 and Leury Garcia's career stats are so incredibly close,
  8. The White Sox fan base not agreeing on something? Holy s%*#, that never happens! What a limb to go out on!
  9. Or... With a team that has a ton of injury problems and exactly one capable OF, there is nothing wrong with signing an OF because there are plenty of holes, plus high odds of needing more than a few OFs because of injuries. Or... What happens if you give Colas a chance and he has a Robin Ventura like start to his career and you have no other OF depth.
  10. Nor do most Sox fans. The tweet implies it is bigger.
  11. Of course they are. But notice they aren't saying exactly who, right?
  12. Happy would be a sizable free agent signing
  13. He seems to at least have a pretty good relationship with the Latin players. I am sure there are plenty of others through the org as well.
