As free agency begins, the White Sox have openings and money to engage in what should be a very active offseason. Prized talents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado headline an all star class. As the GM Meetings kick off in Carlsbad, Calif., MLB.com’s Jon Morosi reported that the White Sox have interest in both stars. Morosi joins the podcast to discuss the White Sox chances of landing one or both (1:50)
Why a creative and possible frontloaded contract would strengthen their case (3:45). We discuss whether some of Machado’s postseason antics devalued his price tag, if at all (9:15) and if we should expect free agency to pick up quicker than last year’s extremely slow pace (12:30). Is the non-waiver trade deadline a thing of the past? (14:45) And, what percent chance does he give the White Sox to land Machado or Harper? (16:10).
Plus, our Chris Kamka joins the conversation and says if there ever was a time to make a splash…this is it (18:15).
