Going into this offseason the White sox have entered the time in which it is time to win. The White Sox have already fired Ricky and Coop this will cause a train reaction for money spending and good signings. They’re going to make big splashes for pitching and an RF from the Big Apple.
- Nomar Mazara: $5.6M | $5.9M | $5.7M (NON-TENDER)
- Carlos Rodón: $4.5M | $4.5M | $4.5M (TENDER) Keeping Rodon than Lopez
- Lucas Giolito: $2.5M | $5.3M | $2.5M (rework/extension)
- Reynaldo López: $1.7M | $2.2M | $1.7M (NON-TENDER)
- Evan Marshall: $1.3M | $1.9M | $1.4M (TENDER)
- Adam Engel: $1M | $1.4M | $1M (TENDER)

OTHER IMPENDING FREE AGENTS
- Alex Colomé (Made $10,532,500 in 2020)-Keep (2 year/$20 Mil with club opt year 2)
- James McCann (Made $5.4M in 2020)-Try to keep but he will sign else where, sadly
- Jarrod Dyson (Made $2M in 2020)-Let Go
- Manager: AJ Hinch
- Bench Coach: AJ Pierzynski
- Pitching coach: Matt Zaleski
No. 1: Trevor Bauer (4 years/$110). Trevor comes to the south side and is an instant hit. Him, Gio, and the Big D will be a scary trio for the AL
No. 2: Jose Quintana (2 years/$15 Mil/ year 2 club option) Sox need another starter/long relief like Gio Gonzalez was.
No. 3: Trevor May (3 years/$33 mil) We need bullpen help and May would fit the bill and has experience in the AL central
I’m sure there will be other smaller minor league deals to add depth in the organization and for competition.
No. 1: Michael Conforto to the South Side hitmen- The Chicago White Sox have a blockbuster deal to land Conforto. They send over Rutherford, Stiever, Thompson and Sheets for Conforto
No. 2: Josh Hader for Carlos Rodon and PTBNL-The Sox this offseason will be creating a super bullpen that will match the best
No.1: Lucas Giolito (4 years/~$100 million) Let’s get our ace a deal shall we?
No.2: Codi Heuer (5 years/~$20 Million) This deal will be similar and be signed around the same time as Aaron Bummer
No.3: Andrew Vaughn (6 years/$60 Million) This deal will follow the past offseason of having top prospects getting deals done so this would not surprise me whatsoever
No.4: Josh Hader (3-4 years/ $10 million annual) Keeping this bullpen together for a while
No.5: Micheal Conforto (4 years/$60 Million)
The 26 man roster opening day
Catchers: Yasmani Grandal, Zack Collins
Infielders: Jose Abreu, Andrew Vaughn, Nick Madrigal, Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada
Outfielder: Luis Robert, Eloy Jimenez, Micheal Conforto
Utility: Leury Garcia, Danny Mendick, and Adam Engel
Starting Pitcher: Trevor Bauer, Lucas Giolito, Dallas Keuchel, Dylan Cease/Dane Dunning, Jose Quintana
Bullpen: Trevor May, Evan Marshall, Alex Colome, Aaron Bummer, Josh Hader, Codi Heuer, Dane Dunning/Dylan Cease, and Jace Fry
The payroll should be around $150 million give or take a few mil. I went at this filling in the rotation fixes and bullpen help. While also keeping the long term winning of the team in place by giving extensions and getting our present and future right fielder in Conforto and locking him up. This team should be the front runners in the American League Central while being good favorites for the American League representative.
