Okay, we're entering the hot stove league period. With the Broncos commitment to suck, MLB cannot get here soon enough!

Let's get it started! In your first post, put a reasonably-sized image of your favorite team's logo. Also, using the poll, indicate who your favorite team is.

That was awesome and much respect to the guy that was the mascot that night.

Might buy the shirt and wear it to spring training in AZ.

They never identified the culprit, just that they'll never work Mr. Met again

That's gonna make a sneaky good 30 for 30 someday, with the underlying Mets being Mets chaos stuff.

Jim Bowden says the White Sox liked what they saw from Red Sox 3B prospect Michael Chavis in the Arizona Fall League. Chavis had a .282/.347/.563 slash line between advanced Single-A and Double-A in 2017.

Yep....we are in talks with BOS for Abreu, whose power they badly need. He's a 300 hitter and also led AL in total bases last year.

If they want him it ain't gonna be cheap cause he's also a valuable mentor for Moncada.

Groome and Chavis.

Or Devers.

If the Sox had any other GM, I'd probably hurt myself laughing at this foolishness.......but knowing the way DUMBrowski works, you very likely could get door #1 above.

I feel confident even he won't deal Devers in any realistic scenario right now, though.

I don't expect Devers either since he wouldn't give him up for Sale last year.

Abreu won't come cheap to BOS, tho.

Yes Sir. A pecking order observed. Again proves why MLB is a league/universe/lifestyle unlike any other.

P.S.- I'm skeptical of a Stanton deal. That's a helluva contract to move, necessitating a lot of extra pressure on either side. Marlins basically a gutted, dickless franchise with God knows what going on in their minds. Perhaps even a Tony Montana type deal in the offices with chairs being tossed across lobbies.

The Marlins aren't making any money, the new ownership group is trying to cut payroll and rebuild into a young up and coming franchise that will attract fans.

Watch him agree and then the teams be unable to consummate.

He's already been told that he can either accept a trade or they will tear everything down around him and force him into being the lone star on a horrendous team.

Right, but team to team compensation is going to be thorny, is my view. The team picking up his contract will not want to give up any other real assets. Marlins want talent coming back.

Seems like Hahn may be asking for Benintendi. They wanted to draft him originally but BOS took him one spot above us. They were asking for him last year in the Sale package but BOS said no (they also refused Devers).

I read an article suggesting if Hahn really wants Benintendi he might need to also send over Avisail Garcia. Between Garcia and Abreu that would add another 50 HRs to BOS lineup with .300 averages as well, ofcourse you'd have to deduct what you project for Benintendi.

I'd do it for CWS. Garcia was kind of a one year wonder, sell high and Abreu is 31. He's a savage for sure but we already got most of his prime.

If Chicago could add Benintendi to a lineup which has Moncada and will soon have Jimenez that would be incredible. Robert and Collins will eventually provide even more power.

We'll wipe our ***** with NY if we can get that deal done.

I doubt Dombrowski will do it tho.

Edit: There is now a report noting we asked for either Devers or Benintendi and BOS so far is refusing so talks are cooling.

Hahn doesn't budge. These are his last two big assets. He waited for months to deal Quintana. You can't wait him out.

From Heyman: The White Sox are said by one source to have made a request that included at least one young player currently on Boston’s major-league roster, and apparently the request either halted talks or at least appears to have left the sides thinking a deal won’t be easy.

Hand him over, Beantown you greedy bastard. I need Devers or Benintendi. MOAR savages. You can't get something for nothing.
