    It seems to me that the Sox would be in a better position to land him after the cap takes effect. Right?

    No, they are one of the few teams with money still remaining.

    It seems to me that if you are over, you may as well go over even more, since it makes no difference, you are being penalized, so those teams would obviously want him to be cleared sooner rather than later. If he's cleared later, only a handful of teams would be able to sign him, including the White Sox.

    Yes but the Sox can also go over their budget this year to get Robert. Then they won't have to pay the penalty until the 18 international period, leaving their 17 budget intact. So in a rebuilding effort you want an influx of young talent ASAP- so the Sox get Robert, 17 draft and 17 international pool. 3 strong classes. If Robert isn't part of the 16 class, then they pretty much just get Robert and the 17 draft.

    If we get him, I hope he doesn't turn into a Luis :fagot:

    Sign him and you almost have to keep Abreu around as protector, interpreter, lover.

    I feel like Abreu staying maybe part of the draw. But who knows... just bring back Alexei as some sort of bullshit coach.

    Even if they trade Abreu, the Sox will still have Moncada.

    Moncada, Abreu and Robert - might as well just become the hub for Cuban talent. Sox have been pretty early to that train.

    Yeah, that Minoso signing really set the stage for all those Cuban players to come to the SOX the last 10 years.

    I meant in recent times.

    It's kind of a big deal if you wanted in on the Shohei Otani sweepstakes.

    Otani will either be given an exemption to be posted like normal or he won't be coming next season and he'd come when I think he's 25, when the new rules don't apply anymore.

    Yeah, it'd be when he's 25, which would be 2019. But if he decides to come over next season, he's going to be subject to the new rules, and since nobody has been granted an exemption yet under these new rules, who knows how that would go.

    I'm hearing his team will not post him if unless they get $$$, which they wouldn't if he's subjected to the new rules

    At least we've got like 50 Cubans before him who have been Sox. The Cardinals have the Arch.

    Wonder if St. Louis has better Cuban food than Chicago.

    SABR?

    Both teams are pretty desperate - Cards perhaps more so than Sox given they have no draft. I wonder if it's a blind bid or it's basically an auction.
