Guest: Robert Murray, MLB Insider and Columnist – Fansided
After trading for Lance Lynn and signing Adam Eaton, the Chicago White Sox still have moves to make this offseason. Who will be their next target? Joining the show is Fansided MLB Insider Robert Murray, who shares his insight on the current free agency market and why he thinks the Sox are serious contenders for Liam Hendriks.
Would Hendriks be the best direction? That was one of many P.O. Sox questions Josh and Jim answer in this episode.
P.O. Sox Questions
Now that James McCann is in Queens, what catcher would you pick to back up Yasmani Grandal?
Other than Grandal, the Sox consistently shop at the mid-tier level of free agency, often to disappointing results. They spend for doubles and expect to hit HRs. Last year they actually failed to hit many singles with Cishek, Mazara, Gonzalez. In 2019, they hit with McCann but whiffed on Alonso, Jay, Herrera, Santana. Will they ever learn?
Which outcome is most likely in 2021 and which outcome is most crucial to success in 2021? Eaton and Engle formed a competent rightfield platoon; Katz is able to coax cease along to fulfill his promise; Giolito experiences no significant drop off in his post McCann career.
