    Flowers to be plucked?

    Post by MGJOHNSON on Sun Nov 29, 2015 3:20 pm

    With Avila's signing, Tyler Flowers has non-tender written all over him.  Flowers made $2.675 last season.  He is eligible for arbitration in 2016 and free agency in 2017.  The Sox aren't likely to pay him around $3 million to be a part-timer. Combine this with his right knee surgery last month, and it looks like Flowers will be blooming (or fading) elsewhere next season.

    The one worry is Reinsdorf's "loyalty fetish".  He might want to keep the stiff around, especially if Cooper talks Flowers up.

    There has not been a word uttered or written that Flowers is leaving.  He is still the #1 catcher.


    Avila is a big NOTHING, TOO.  Always hurt.  His FATHER is Tigers GM and does not want him.


    Soto left.  The Sox need another catcher.  This is not complicated unless somebody out there is listening to White Sox CODESPEAK.

    Flowers is in line to make close to $ 4 mil in arb and Avila is at $ 2 mil. That's a bunch for two lousy hitting catchers.  If Sox believe Avila could stay healthy and hit RHed pitching decently, they could dump Flowers and try to get a cheap Soto-type RHed hitting Catcher in free agency.   But that puts a lot more faith in Avila than his last 2 seasons would warrant.  He hasn't hit RHed pitching decently since 2013. If 2016 is still a "win-now" season, Flowers will probably stay.

    ROSEBOWL NAILS IT.

    EVERY YEAR IS WIN NOW

    EVERY YEAR THEY HAVE THEIR LITTLE JULY HOT STREAK THAT CONVINCES THEM THE DIVISION CAN BE HAD

    JUST THINK IF ON 7/30 THEY TOOK THE APRIL THEORY SERIOUSLY.  (YET ANOTHER VICTORY CREAMPUFF NEEDS TO THE KARK'S WIN COLUMN)

    THIS TEAM NEEDS TO BUY 2 BIG BATS AND ADD A RIGHTHANDED STARTER AS GOOD AS WHAT SAMARDZIJA WAS SUPPOSED TO BE.  THEN THEY HAVE A FIGHTING CHANCE.

    OTHERWISE, ITS REFOOL WITH TRAYCE THOMPSON AND TIM ANDERSON
