    I like Hamels but 18 million is way to steep a price. Good luck in Atlanta.

    I was thinking he'd get about 10-12. Good for him.

    We didnít want Hamels anyways. Especially at 18 million. I donít see us striking out on at least 1 elite to elite upside starter. We are active and they Agents know we are opening up our pocket books. I get the feeling we offered 5 year 100ish already, and his agent is playing The Who Will Pay More game by leaking that number

    Kuechel is a nice alternative. Wheeler/Kuechel/Petersen and then concentrate on bullpen.

    Wheeler to Philís. Looks like the dominos are starting to fall.

    5/120? Wow!

    Thatís crazy, donít think the sox wanted to go that high. Or drove the price up. Have a feeling weíre gonna strikeout on pitching tho, bad feeling

    MadBum all day!!! Aside from a year of fluke injuries heís been an Ironman in the game. Heís a big gamer and he wonít cost 200 million. Although Iím more then happy giving Cole a massive payday. Heís worth it

    Need to move on Bumgarner immediately. If we're willing to go with 5/120 for Wheeler (I'm guessing here), I wouldn't be opposed for something upwards of 4/84-4/92 for MadBum.

    Sounds like Chuck Garfien said the offer from the WhiteSox was 5/$120 mil.

    Iím sure you guys will end up grabbing someone from FA pitcher wise.

    I'm so happy Wheeler chose the Phillies. That contact is going to suck. I'd bet he's hurt for half of it. Legit, was so happy when I read the article saying the Sox offered more but he chose the Phillies.

    I think Madbum is a much better and cheaper risk for the Sox, same with Dallas.

    Actually think Hamels on a 1 year deal would have been great for the Sox, but, the Sox probably weren't an option in his minds.

    Have there been any statements on what the Sox are willing to spend? I'd be curious. I think there are a lot of good value options on the market this year and they don't need to blow their load this year.
