    The two big bats remaining as free agents among outfielders are Yoenis Cespedes and Justin Upton.  Of course, free agents only come free in some fantasy baseball formats.  I can understand why the Sox reportedly don't want to go long term on either one of these guys.  Each is a tremendous talent, but very risky. 

    Cespedes seems to have worn out his welcome with four teams in the last two seasons.  As I mentioned elsewhere, the major knock on him is that he's uncoachable.

    Upton doesn't seem like he puts out 100% all the time.  That's why I believe the Dbacks traded him.  He was considered a potential superstar, but is somewhat lackadaisical.  Upton could be KW's next Alex Rios.

    If it were up to me, I'd probably pass on both and try to claim Lane Adams off waivers from KC; but then, I'm cheap always looking for those free breadsticks.

    Perhaps speedy Denard Span could be signed at a reasonable price, which is probably wishful thinking since Scott Boras is his agent.  Span is also recovering from a torn muscle in his hip area, so he might not be all that fast.

    I believe a lot of the risk is mitigated by the fact the game is played with monopoly money.  Plus baseball is not your typical business in other respects as well.  Your employees are also your product.  So you have risk in the opposite direction as well.  Unless they play in an ivy covered urinal, people don't usually pay a lot to see no talent losers


    Cespedes seems to have worn out his welcome with four teams in the last two seasons.  As I mentioned elsewhere, the major knock on him is that he's uncoachable.

    So was Dick Allen.  Hopefully Cespedes could be more than a one year wonder for the White Sox.

    Upton doesn't seem like he puts out 100% all the time.  That's why I believe the Dbacks traded him.  He was considered a potential superstar, but is somewhat lackadaisical.  Upton could be KW's next Alex Rios.

    Agreed, which is why I go balls out for Cespedes.  He is the biggest bat out there.  Plus he doesn't cost a draft pick.  White Sox need another big bat if they wish to contend.  Praying for Avisil Garcia to turn the corner is not the answer.


    If it were up to me, I'd probably pass on both and try to claim Lane Adams off waivers from KC; but then, I'm cheap always looking for those free breadsticks.

    That's right, All-Star talent are constantly sitting their for the taking on the waiver wire.  An a 26 year old that batted 226 in all of his 37 games in AAA just screams All Star talent.


    Perhaps speedy Denard Span could be signed at a reasonable price, which is probably wishful thinking since Scott Boras is his agent.  Span is also recovering from a torn muscle in his hip area, so he might not be all that fast.

    From the waiver wire to the disabled list.  Gotta love Mart's sources.  Now signing Span to be the 4th OF might makes senses.  But that implies that already have 3 that are better than Span which they don't.

    Mart, enough of your defend the budget nonsense!!!

    A loser built on the cheap is still a loser!!!!!!

    Ah, Kark, diss Lane Adams all you want, but he's probably better than newly acquired waiveree OF Daniel Fields. tongue

    I agree that between Cespedes and Upton, Cespedes is definitely the one to go after.  As I mentioned in another thread, ignoring the Sox "braintrust" might well be a plus for a player.

    I really don't care how Reinsdorf's pocketbook.  However if Reinsdorf shells out mega cash on a multi-year dud, we fans will be blessed with having to suffer thru watching that dud on a regular basis for years to come, ala Adam Dunn.  Unlike other teams which will chalk off their mistakes and move on, the Sox don't.  They just keep running their duds out there game after game after game, year after year after year.

    LOL...  Yeah, Cream, it would seem that way, except often the most stupid, incompetent bosses in the world love to bellow the Eric Cartman "you must submit to my authority" crap.  So with the Sox, there will likely be sparks flying between Cespedes and his bosses.  At least, it wouldn't be boring.  And where there are sparks, there may actually be a bit of life.

    The Illinois politicians should raise the taxes even more so the Sox can field a better team.

    What's the difference between a cheap dud and an expensive dud?!?!?!?

    Other than you expected more from the expensive dud

    BTW, see the Giants signed Span

    Also, Justin Upton reportedly may be willing to take a one year contract.  Such a short term deal may propel him away from sitting on his ass.

    Geraldo Parra is a good journeyman outfielder who remains unsigned.  Unlike Upton, Parra always seemed to play above what was expected of him when with the Dbacks.

    Parra reminds me of former Sox outfielder Dave Martinez.

    These assholes should pay Cespedes.

    There is a huge image and credibility problem with the White Sox.

    The Cubs are no longer owned by the bandit Tribune Company.

    Ricketts plays for keeps.

    Chairman has to either COMPETE or SELL.

    The absolute dumbest thing I saw on the Internet during the Cespedes nonsense was that the agent for Cespedes, JAYZ or whatever the fuck his name is, was using THE WHITE SOX as leverage!!


    The White Sox probably never made an OFFER.


    I remember the first A-Rod go around with free agency.  The drillrod media said the Sox were a bidder.  FANBOYS led the cheers and the most gullible thought it was for real.


    When he signed with Texas, Boras said the Sox NEVER MADE AN OFFER!!!


    ROTFLMFAO!!!


    WIN NOW 2016!!!!  Reinsdorf wants to win another World Series!!!!


    I have a Chinese Buffet to sell, too!!!

    Any damned fool can see the White Sox are basically the Brewers or the Padres.


    This Fanboy cheerleading and worrying about Reinsdorf's business is just plain nuts.


    We can go to a few FESTS,watch some games, and have some beers and laughs.


    We can stir up shit on message boards, too!!!


    Damn, before the Internet I was so smug in my belief that Sox Fans were so much smarter and had more savvy than Cub Fans.  Then I found out the World was not flat, too!!!

    Well, the Sox said they didn't want to go more than three years for Cespedes, and Cespedes went for three years and it wasn't with the Sox.  So either (a) Reinsdorf offered him three years at less $$ than the Mets did or (b) Sox made a comparable offer and Cespedes preferred the Mets or (c) Sox didn't make him an offer at all.
