Guest: Teddy Cahill, Baseball America
On this week’s show, we discuss the latest big transactions that occurred. Eric Hosmer signing with the San Diego Padres, Jake Odorizzi to the Minnesota Twins, Tampa Bay Rays DFA Corey Dickerson, and the White Sox DFA Dylan Covey. Ok, that last one is not major but we break the moves down and how they impact the White Sox.
Our guest is Teddy Cahill of Baseball America to preview the 2018 College Baseball season which is already underway. Will Florida have enough offense to repeat as champions? Who will challenge them? Can Oregon State make it to the final or will another contender like Texas Tech face them? Plus, Teddy gives his preseason Golden Spikes watch list.
Plus, P.O. Sox questions:
What do you think the chances are of Chris Sale re signing with the Sox after the 2019 season. He would only be 30 and it would be right around the time they are ready to contend

Trooper Galactus, Patreon:Looking at the stupid amounts of money the Padres threw at Hosmer, are there any free agents in next year’s class who you worry the Sox might panic and throw too much money at if they whiff on the likes of Harper, Machado, and Donaldson?
Bonus questions for Patreon subscribers:
Southpaw Jackson: ” Who opens the season as the Sox closer? Is it handed to Soria or is there a spring competition with Nate Jones and other dark horse candidates?”
Mark Hope: ” Jose Abreu said he wants to spend the rest of his career with the Sox – what does the rest of his career look like in order to get #79 retired?”
