    Manny Machado next winter?

    Rumor has it, OUR White Sox plan to make a big push in next winter.


    Rumor also has it Machado wants to play SS full time.


    I would say the lineup portion of the rebuild would be 90% finished with this signing.  OUR White Sox would still need a leadoff hitter


    Also, who plays where in the infield?  Especially if Machado is signed as a SS.

    I have learned to leave player speculation, especially a year out, to serious Fanboys such as Murph and Steve the Pimp at SFOD.


    I just want the Sox to play some defense in 2018.  Catch the ball.  Throw the ball.  Hit the cutoff man so runners do not advance two bases when the ball is thrown to the screen.


    Simple things.  Real baseball.  Not the shit they have perfected.

    The KARK is hoping for more lucky groundball hits

    He could but the difference between what he asked for (6.7 mil) and what the Sox offered (5.Cool isn't all that great..  So it should be relatively easy for the Sox to come up with another $ 700 K and get him very close to what he wanted.

    Better option


    Split the difference then sign a 5 year deal
