    OK, YOU GUYS WERE CORRECT ABOUT BORAS, BUT THAT WAS NOT THE CENTRAL ARGUMENT.  YOU GUYS CLAIMED WIETERS WOULD BE BAD FOR THE SOX.  WHICH HE WOULDN'T.  SO NICE BAIT AND SWITCH.

    PLUS REBUILDING TEAMS TAKE FLYERS ON 30 YEARS OLDS ALL THE TIME.  NOT EVERY PROSPECT IS READY.  SO YOU BRING IN A GUY FOR A YEAR SO YOU DON'T RUSH THE PROSPECT.  HOWEVER, YOUR KARKO DERANGEMENT SYNDROME IS BLINDING YOU FROM SEEING THE OBVIOUS.

    YOU DO 5REALIZE YOUR HEROES AVISAIL GARCIA AND GEO SOTO WILL NOT BE PART OF THE 2020 WORLD SERIES TEAM DONTCHA

    Listen carefully. THEY ARE ON THE FUCKING ROSTER. THEY ARE ON THE FUCKING ROSTER FOR RELATIVELY CHEAP MONEY. WHY IN THE BLUE BLAZES DO YOU WANT TO GO OUT AND SIGN A HIGHER END (IN YOUR OPINION) FREE AGENT CATCHER WHO ALSO WON'T BE A PART OF THE 2020 WORLD SERIES TEAM?


    In the particular case of Wieters, I thought I saw an opportunity to sign an All-Star on the cheap.


    Apparently, the opportunity was there


    However, if you bother readings the rebuttals to my suggestion carefully, the price tag of Wieters was in the distinct minority of the discussion.


    Instead of claiming Boras would never sign that cheap and be done with it.  I was hit with invented statisitics and flawed philosophical arguments about youth and complete distortions of the the bigger picture I was painting.


    Maybe if you would have attempted to understand what I was saying, instead of looking to just deliberately disagree with me, that 3 week discussion could have be over in 3 minutes

    What on Earth made you think that Wieters was going to sign for the ridiculously low amount that the White Sox would have offered him? He would have been insulted and waited for the next team.


    He was NEVER on their radar in the first place.

    This isn't a formulaic response. In this one, you just insulted without claiming to be a victim. You must be growing.
