I just don’t see the whitesox shelling out for Manny. I would love it but I’ve also been a whitesox fan for going on 30 years and outside of Albert Belle, Jose Abreu, & Luis Robert we tend to not outspend big clubs. Cleveland didn’t want Belle, and Abreu had questions coming over. Robert while we were competing with clubs it wasn’t unlimited like Free agency.

Also, Manny wants to play SS. Hopefully Timmay does his job and makes spending an extra $350mil to replace him a waste of $.

Arenado 2020!!

I’m actually of the opinion that if they fail to get Machado, they’d better get Arenado or hope Jake Burger turns into a wrecking machine.

White Sox 4th on BA farm system rankings. Actually higher than last year.

I would feel better about it were five of our seven top-100 guys not acquired via trade, and only one was drafted by the org.  However, the second tier, which is composed heavily of our draft picks, is much stronger and deeper than in the past.

Great podcast as always. Love soxfest recap and am so remiss on missing it this year. Thank you for such wonderful listening.

 

I was thinking about the radio thing particularly AM vs FM. If there were no blackout restrictions and they could actually broadcast the games, wouldn’t FM be a very accessible option on many phone apps that pick up FM? Unfortunately I guess that’s a pretty big if if not an impossible one because business. I’m not completely knowledgeable on it but I believe stuff like iHeart Radio and TuneIn and stuff can flawlessly pick up actual live FM radio and there’s even some way for phones to pick up FM.
