    If the playoffs started right now, they would need to win either 2 or 3 games in a row against different teams just to get into the LDS.

    Another Anthrax gem.

    I'll take him as team president. KW can go kick rocks.

    Even has ties to the organization, but was booted during Hawk's reign of terror as GM in 1986.

    Sounds like something JR would do.

    There are already rumblings about him going to Toronto to become their team prez...kind of odd that the Tigers opted to do this right after Dombrowski was involved in their trades of Price and Cespedes.

    The writing was on the wall for awhile, I wouldn't be surprised if Dombrowski acted as more of an in-between in those deals than actually doing most of them. Selling off and grabbing prospects hasn't been his thing for awhile, this was bound to happen once the Tigers took their foot off the pedal.

    Was shocked to see this here a couple hours ago but now that I've had some time to read up it sounds like it was more a mutual thing to let him seek higher level jobs.

    Thanks, as they are now in a position to win the AL...As they sit 3.5 games up in the WildCard amd 1 game back of the ALE title.. Come October when I'm right yet again, I won't hold it against you.. :happyguy:

    They still need to win a coinflip game to get in the actual playoffs if it ended today.

    The Royals are the favorites, that's a given.

    So the team the Blue Jays took 3/4 from a couple of weeks ago; is the favorite over the Jays? The Season series, which I know means jack, is Blue Jays 4, Royals 3. The Royals get the pleasure of playing the White Sox and Tigers. The ALE 4th place team in would be 2nd place in the ALC. Sorry call me skeptical of the Royals record right now.

    And the playoffs don't start today or tomorrow.. Baring injuries, Jays to the World Series in 2015..

    Yankees want Robertson.. They claimed him off waivers.

    Take HIM PLEASE!!!

    Not that he himself is the problem, but the team doesn't need a closer right now, or during the length of that deal.

    But, in SOX fashion they will ask the farm to give him up. FML

    Why shouldn't they ask for the farm? Unless you're projecting that he'll go to shit soon, his deal becomes progressively more attractive in trade every year.

    Yeah I would be about trading Robertson but I also don't want to just give him away

    Yeh, let's give away one of the 4 people that aren't boners for nothing. I'd want at least two high prospects for him. I'm glad they're holding because the pitching could be amazing next year if Fulmer joins the rotation. I wish they'd just move Garcia already.

    Cause you admit you made the mistake on this team. Get out of that bad money. Much like Toronto did with Rios several years ago. I mean what stupid GM/Team took that deal.. Oh Wait.
    The Sox need to retool this team for the future. You won't need a closer for another 2 years at least... you're throwing bad money out the window for nothing.

    Well the thing is, Robertson isn't bad money. He's at a market level contract.

    Evidence that it's "bad money"? Sure they don't need a closer at the moment, but Hahn is careful to avoid being strapped for cash, unlike Kenny "Can't Spend A Dollar" Williams.

    Rios is a crap comparison.

    Robertson for Gary Sanchez + another top 20 prospect in their system is a deal I'd take.
  42. y2chae

    y2chae Panda

    Yeah just because the team doesn't need a closer doesn't mean the deal their closer is on is a bad deal. It's a perfectly fine deal for a player who is expendable because the team sucks.
  43. AnthraxFan93

    AnthraxFan93 BASEBALL GURU

    Rios is an perfect example of a GM realizing his mistake and getting rid of it. Unlike Hahn, who like Kenny keeps making the same bad mistake. The Sox have the worse record in baseball since the start of 2013.

    Who is going to trade players for a mid-tier closer who has 3/36M left on his deal after this season? That my friend is the bad money.

    Too bad all of your "points" get refuted by almost every poster here. Just keep telling yourself you know anything about anything. You have said hold onto Robin and Fire Hahn in the same season.

    Anthrax really puts the ANAL in analysis.

    :lol: at "realizing his mistake" when a guy plays up to his contract, as opposed to what Rios did.

    :lol: :lol: at the deal being untradeable next year, even though the money is proportionately less than it is now, and even though he obviously is tradeable now.

    I don't know what your definition of a "mid tier" closer is but Robertson has had a good season and he is worth $12 million a year because that's the going rate for a good closer. In an open trade market, Robertson can get you a couple decent prospects.
  50. y2chae

    y2chae Panda

    And I think Anthrax has some selective memory on Rios. Rios was bad in 2011 but in 2010 and 2012 he was an above average starter. And in 2013 before he got traded he was having an okay season. So one bad season, 2 good seasons and 1 average season for $12 million a year... I'll take that return when the Sox didn't have to give up anything.
