The white Sox went from "start with Holliday or it's a non-starter," to taking a prospect package far worse than what the O's offered for Burnes, all in a matter of weeks.

What a terribly run org. Jeez.

I'm highly skeptical of their position truly being "start with Holliday."

White Sox got 3 guys who landed inside their top 10 prospects. Thorpe at 3, Zavala at 6, and Iriarte at 9.

Not a terrible haul for Cease.

Classic case of Chi may have liked the Padres guys more than what we offered Milwaukee for Burnes. Seems close enough to label it that way.

San Diego package was better than what we gave up for Burnes. Granted, Cease has that extra year of control.

Ortiz is a better headliner, IMO. Probably take Hall over the RP. The other two prospects are a good bit more valuable than the comp pick so think overall the Padres offer was stronger. I don't think it's a big difference though, especially depending on your evaluation of Hall who is probably the most volatile piece in either deal.

According to Sarah Langs, he's the 4th youngest CF to start on opening day in the divisional era.  Griffey Jr. is #1 and #2 on the list.

The Orioles are already preparing their WOW offer for 2030.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I have a longer response and was going to include this in some other discussion.  I'm guessing you just wanted to do your Wile E. thing and aren't actually interested in the response.

 

I will say this....are you sure you want to use the Padres the standard for the "smart thing to do"??
