    I would not be surprised to see Q hang around until the trade deadline. Those borderline teams that are close to being there will want to wait to see if they actually are "there" come the ASB. I don't think teams that are already loaded for bear are going to be inclined to buy high. Even the Yankees are like

    Why were the Yankees interested in Robertson after signing Chapman? Setup man?

    I'd imagine familiarity and ability to put him in a setup role being near the top of the list.

    Can you imagine Giovanni Soto throwing to Geovany Soto?

    Downside: we have to endure his weird "I can't throw the ball back without falling down and wiping my hand each time" thing.

    Starting to look like I'm going to Arizona in March. Going to umpire for 4 days and then bounce around camp for 3 days. Probably see the SOX at Camelback and then in Surprise.

    If you go to Camelback get the Hawaiian noodle thing kind of behind third base. Shit is awesome.

    On Yankees Hot Stove, Cashman said sticker price for Quintana is beyond what he'd pay. Hearing White Sox wanted at least 3 elite prospects

    I guess MLBTR projected him at $13.5, so it's right around what other teams would've expected.

    Are you trying to lose to get a better pick for the 2018 draft? That's the model we are following. So why not, 2017 is a lost season hell bring back Garland and Danks while we are at it!

    Why wouldn't you want the Sox to lose as many games as possible, in hopes of getting the #1 overall pick in 2018?

    Theo said in 2011/2 timeframe. There is no point in winning 75 games. Agree, the purpose of a rebuild is to restock the farm with the best talent.

    You guys think the White Sox are just getting these prospects so they can eventually trade them for over the hill overpriced veterans?

    I watch a lot of White Sox games but I can't really ever see a need to live stream a game. If I'm somewhere that I can't watch it I just put the game cast on.

    So if you're working and have the option to actually put it on instead of using Gamecast, you wouldn't?

    I'm sure I'll put it up and listen in the background, and then check in on the video if anything interesting happens. Will also come in handy on the train if I'm in the city late.

    And then you have the occasion circumstance where you really want to be able to watch and can't, where game day just isn't good enough. Like a no hitter or potential clincher*
