White Sox 2020

Recommended Posts

The White Sox certainly are having an interesting offseason:

- Re-signed Jose Abreu (3/$50 mm)

- Signed Yasmani Grandal (4/$73 mm)

- Signed Dallas Keuchel (3/$55.5 mm)

- Signed Edwin Encarnacion (1/$12 mm)

- Signed Gio Gonzalez (1/$5 mm with 2021 option)

- Re-signed James McCann (1/$5.4 mm)

- Gave long term deal to Luis Robert (6/$50 mm with two $20 mm options).    

In addition to that group, they have budding star Yoan Moncada under control for four years, Eloy Jimenez signed last year to a six year deal (now five remaining) for $43 mm and two options ($16.5 and $18 mm), Tim Anderson signed for three more years plus two club options ($12.5 and $14 mm) and Lucas Giolito coming into his own with four years of control remaining.      It sure looks like the White Sox window is about to open and stay open for a nice stretch.

A nice Givens spot.

They had a high Machado bid (including Yonder Alonso soft sell) last offseason - I think there was a colorful report the GM was on a golf cart or something when Padres Machado broke, to the team's consternation.  I wonder if they're happy now about how it worked out.

They've succeeded with Eloy and Robert - Madrigal next.  If they don't get Madrigal done, that'll be a fun Kris Bryant-ish cat and mouse to watch in March and April.  They could browse the Dozier/Asdrubal/Wilmer 2B tier if they want a little more cover.

Before they got Encarnacion, I thought some Incaviglia-style quick to bigs for Andrew Vaughn may have been in play this summer.

The White Sox and Angels may be refuges that aren't too offensive to semi-cheer for while waiting out the last couple years of return to relevance.

    • I'm hopeful that this is a short enough sprint into a really wide playoff net that the marathon of a normal baseball season won't be able to pick out the flukes quickly enough. After that point, you just need to be hot at the right time.
    • And to get payroll as low as feasibly possible.
    • He hasn’t made that many trades, but remember, his goal is to make the future team better. His goal might very well be to deliberately make the current team worse because the third draft pick is more valuable than the 15th, so if he can trade a good reliever now for a guy who might be good in 5 years, he will do it.
    • Well that just reinforces that Houston does that which we can not do, and therefore is a poor example to follow. Don’t trade draft picks, do get active in the international market, draft big, sign kids, and trade in year four.
    • Actually, we want a sport that looks like baseball.

    • This is not a contending team...Don't be fooled by a good start. The only problem is they may be able to hang around with the real Cobb and veteran performances by Milone, and LeBlanc might prevent them from being terrible
