  • *OFFICIAL* 2021 Sox Game Thread 3

    Next game is 710 pm Friday at KC. Rodon starting. Lynn starts Saturday and Giolito Sunday.

    Hopefully they remember to pack Tuesday night’s bats, and throw Wednesday’s bats from the back of the plane into the Ohio River.

    Some may also be hoping they throw the manager in it as well. 😀

    No way of knowing of course but I wonder what JR is thinking after today and the way things have gone with his managerial hiring decision the first month.

        For Cespedes straight up? I'd probably do it unless trading him right away messes with your ability to convince Colas to sign.

          I always thought sCrUB fan boy was Paul Sullivan. Clearly a sCrUBS fan in Sox clothing to those unfortunate enough to have read his daily tripe.

            Yeah that would be a no-brainer trade. But I think he was suggesting something like Cespedes, Kelley, Dalquist, and Thompson for Bryant.

            Push, pull or drag your best three or four teenage trade-ins (or maybe Yoelqui Cespedes?) for a chance to pull your outfield out of the 2021 crapper and restore those World Series visions you’ve been selling on the South Side the last six months.

              I think Cubs fans are anxious to even the score after the Q for Eloy and Cease trade.

                Bryant's trade value is low. Not because of his numbers. Not because of his injury history. It's because he is a pure rental. Borass is his agent, 0% chance of signing an extension with whomever lands him in a trade. Borass would want him to test the FA market this winter. Too much to give up for a few months.

                  I mean it would maybe make sense if the Sox Bryant now, but at the end of July this wouldn't make as much sense. Decent chance that 1 of Eloy and Robert would be back within 3-4 weeks after that point, maybe both.

                  The Sox probably will tough it out until Engel is back in 3 weeks and pair him with Goodwin to replace Hamilton and Gonzalez. They will take Eaton, Engel, Vaughn, Goodwin, Garcia until the deadline when they will have a better idea of the timetables for Eloy and Robert. If things aren't going well for Eaton, Engel, Vaughn, Goodwin, or ones injured May/June, then they maybe make a move early July for a Pederson type guy.

                    I would not trade for Bryant because he is a rental and I agree that Boras would never let him sign an extension. Don't panic!

                      Yea the Cubs could have gotten a fairly decent haul for Bryant at the beginning of 2020, but I don't think they'd get much now. I can't think of the last time a team gave up a lot for a half year rental. I'm sure it's happened recently, I just can't think of it off the top of my head and it doesn't happen anywhere near as often as it used to happen back in the '90s and early 2000s.

                        Wasn't he getting over an injury going into 2020?

                          I know there were and have been issues concerning his shoulder I think? And I think he was pretty banged up throughout all of 2020, but he was coming off a pretty good 2019.

                            The Indians beat KC today and now lead the A.L. Central by a half game over the Sox.
                            Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

                              You're a bit optimistic on the timeline for Robert and Eloy I think. But even so, if they get back the Sox will be forced to roll out an outfield of Eloy, Robert, and Bryant. Oh the horrors!
