Kenny Williams on Report for $ 300 million
"Obviously, that was done, and San Diego has come to this level. This level is impossible for us, because we still have to collect the general list of winners.

The third baseball man who easily fell into the top ten baseball players received the contract he was asking for. What is a new concept.
The Chicago final offer #WhiteSox to Manny Machado was the eighth year, a $ 250 million warranty with an option of $ 35 million in 2027, an option of $ 35 million in 2028, giving a potential sum for a total of $ 320 million. The year of the election includes 550 appearances on the plate of the previous season

It seems Kenny wanted his press conference to take place at twilight hours in Arizona, through Bob's mouthpiece. Realistic realistic options for a third person with baseball in the mid-1930s, White Sox.
Sox Proposal before Machado changed on Monday GM Rick Hahn sai They had a restless night waiting. The organization does not believe in this philosophy.

Oh, yes, because the op-out is not at all important in the quest to sign superstars of free agents.
Rick Khan * said that White Sox was happy at the table.
We simply did not know that this is a children's table.

You're right, Brett, Padres and White Sox sat down on Thanksgiving, Padres felt like taking a chance to pick a little dark monster and much Cranberries, and ended up with the most delicious meal. Meanwhile, three magari, Ricky, Kenny, and Gerbern got a good bit of white mousse with mashed potatoes and no sauce – nice, conservative and, of course, tasteless.
Observations made by the top brass White Sox, should scare admirers. Kenny Williams, a supporter of the attention he was to release a year ago, mentioned that Sox was not ready to satisfy the $ 300 million magic mark for guaranteed money. Instead, they wanted superstars to offer unthinkable options that probably did not have a real shot at transformation, and did not offer any bounce. Oh, but they were super creative, though, Rick? Well, how creative a team can be, when an organization does not even believe in a refusal.
The reason fans should be afraid is because these restrictions by Jerry Reinsdorf put on Rick and Kenny will never attract large free agents. . Bryce Harper, apparently, will earn more guaranteed money than Machado. Welp, White Sox already on it. But, Rick said that the money that Machado rejected would be spent elsewhere – but would it be worth it? Well, let's look at the free harvest next year.
Today, the largest free agents after the 2019 season, in particular order: Paul Goldschmidt, Scooter Genet, Nolan Arenado, JD Martinez, Anthony Rendon, Chris Sala Xander Bogaerts and Gerrit Cole.
With financial constraints ($ 300 million), White Sox went to Arenado and probably Anthony Randon (as perhaps the least underestimated baseball player). With idiotic philosophy, the use of denial of contracts, Sox goes to all, in addition, perhaps Scooter Gennett.
However, this is perhaps even worse. Someone expects other 2019 free agents, such as Gennett, Marcell Ozuna, Yasiel Puig, Khris Davis, Madison Bumgarner, Justin Verlander, Josh Donaldson (if he returns as the Top 15 attacker he was) to accept the deal without rejection. And if Stefan Strasbourg refuses, will he accept an agreement that does not include a refusal? Doubtless, especially with the onset of a shot.
So who in White Sox stayed in a free agency next year, now that we know what financial constraints they are working on? Well, not really, really.
Didi Gregorius, Aaron Hicks, Nicolas Castellanos, Adam Eaton and Zack Wheeler will be available and may be eligible for the White Sox Financial Options. Gregorius and Hicks tear away from the car, but bloomed late.
As you can see on the home video graphic above, Gregorius loves the close right fence at the Janki Stadium, like Aaron Hicks. Castellanos will join his age of 28 season in 2020 and is a big hitter like the Detroit Tiger. His bursting power leads to a large number of dual in Comerica, and some of them have to turn into Souls' Homers. However, how many defensive obligations can Sux stand in the field? We all know Adam Eaton, and I do not want Drake Larrose's main follower to come back. Meanwhile, Zack Wheeler finally comes to a healthy season, but he can not be trusted to be healthy for a long time, and only one season under his belt with 30 or more starts and a star rating of 7.9 for four seasons.
OK, 2019 is a bust. Well, how about 2020?
When using the same financial parameters, White Sox will go to J.T. Realmuto, Matt Carpenter, Justin Turner, Andelton Simmons, Mike Trout, Muckie Betts, George Springer, Giancarlo Stanton (if he declines), Jacob deGrom, Robbie Ray and James Paxton, and they certainly will not give the top dollar relay like Blake Trinin and Sean Dulitl
So, who is Sox looking at in 2020? Mike Zunino, although the top dollar for the sight would probably not happen if Sox believe Zack Collins and Seby Zavala answer. Starlin Castro? Dear lord, no. Jason Kipnys, Zack Kozart, Jonas Chapsedes, Michael Brentley, Jake Arrieta and Marcus Stormmann? In 2018, these players received more titles than production, not to mention the year 2020.
Realistic options include Joc Pederson, which White Sox could only trade. Jackie Bradley Jr. is a fantastic center but has not yet found a good bit from the 2015-2016 season. Trevor Bauer said he would sign only one-year contracts, and this does not fit MO Soxa in general. Perhaps they will turn regressing Jose Kintan, or Kyle Hendrick, who will throw in the mid 80's at that time? Is Yuli Gurriel or Jake Lamb tickle?
It is unfortunate that each of the above players is better than any member of the White Sox 2018 list, even if you add one or two seasons to some players. The fact that Reinsdorf will not open his checkout book for Machado means that most of the players above have no chance to come to the South. The additional fact that the exclusion is not part of the reverse contract philosophy of the White Sox is a joke, and probably leads to the fact that future free agents categorically ignore White Sox's proposals.
If we want to accept the words of Khan and Williams at nominal value, the prospects will work better. Not just for the sake of the organization, but for any entranced fan who watched as Chris Sally wins the World Series with the help of a patented slider.
