  • *Official* Free agent signing and trade frenzy thread

    Brew up a big pot of coffee, tell the boss you're too sick to work the next couple of days, turn on MLB TV and post the frenzy here.

    Let's hope the White Sox actually go about doing something other than the cast off's, retreads, has been's and never was's they have been using say in right field. Hello: Nomar Mazara and Adam Eaton!

        If the Sox don’t go after Conforto or another top-tier RF, Joc Pederson could be a good fit, especially now that the shift is banned.

          If he agrees to a multi year deal since shifts won't be banned until next year. I just want them active and aggressive for a change.

            Ummmmmmmmmmmm...so what happened to the "frenzy"? Seems teams are cautiously approaching this and we haven't seen a slew of signings in the first few hours like some were expecting and postulating about.

              We already have a thread or two where people can post what the Sox need/should sign/etc. etc.

              This thread is for news.

              The silence could be everyone is weighing offers/options. You don't want to say yes to the first caller.

                Some are speculating that no team wants to be the first to announce a deal because they’ll be suspected of talking during the lockout.

                  Teams were allowed to speak with agents from what I read during the lockout. Remember folks here writing about how Hahn was/should be working the phones ahead of time? I wrote that I hoped that was the case but with JR who knows for sure.

                    I read that talks were not allowed. That makes sense since it would usually require contact with the players by the Front Office either directly or through their agents.

                      No, this was definitely not allowed.

                        The St. Louis Cardinals have made the first signing since Major League Baseball's owner-imposed lockout ended on Thursday night, some 99 days after it was first installed. According to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, the Cardinals have agreed to a two-year pact worth $5.5 million with right-handed pitcher Drew VerHagen.

                          The Rangers agreed to a deal with veteran left-hander Martín Pérez, pending a physical, according to a report on Friday from FanSided's Robert Murray. The team has not confirmed.

                          Pérez spent the first seven seasons of his career with Texas, before moving on to the Twins and spending the past two years with the Red Sox.

                          Pérez went 7-8 last season with a 4.74 ERA in 36 games, 22 of them starts. He set career highs in K/9 (7.7) and K/BB (2.69).

                              Good luck to Carlos, a crying shame he can't avoid arm troubles, he could have had a great career with the Sox.
                              Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.
