2015 Chicago WhiteSox

C= T. Flowers (29)
1B= K. Barnum (22) #10 1B prospect
2B= G. Beckham (28)<--------w/ Marcus Seimen nipping at his heals
SS= A. Ramirez (33)
3B= C. Sanchez (22) #7 INF prospect
LF= D. Viciedo (25)
CF= T. Thompson (24)
RF= J. Mitchell (25)
DH= A. Dunn (35)

SP- C. Sale L
SP- F. HERNANDEZ R (8yr-150M) CONTROL through his age 33 season
SP- J. Danks L
SP- E. Johnson R
SP- S. Snodgress L

CL- A. Reed (24)
SU- J. Crain (34)
SU- H. Street (32)
RP- S. Marshall (33)
RP- S. Castro (25)
RP- J. Quintana (25)
LR- D. Axelrod (28)

Kept it mostly in house This team would have a budget of roughly 96M leaving a TON of wiggle room where if in contention can make some big moves.

I like this 2015 team better than our current team unfortunately.....

Felix Hernandez is a lock to make $200 million from someone.

I dont see this ownership locking up any pitcher for 8 years.

If Adam Dunn is still on this team in 2015, that means something has gone horribly wrong, and I won't be with that team.

No way in hell Felix doesn't get 22-25 million a year.

He's as durable as they come.

Nice idea.

2015 Chicago WhiteSox

C= Kevan Smith (27)
1B= Andy Wilkins (26)
2B= Carlos Sanchez (22)
SS= Alexei Ramirez (33)
3B= Matt Carpenter (30) (Trade)
LF= Keenyn Walker (25)
CF= Trayce Thompson (24)
RF= Dayan Viciedo (25)
DH= James Loney (FA) (31)

Bench
Tyler Flowers C (29)
Jared Mitchell OF (25)
Tyler Saladino INF (26)
Jeff Keppinger INF (35)
Chris Young OF (32)

SP- Chris Sale L
SP- Jenrry Meija R (trade)
SP- John Danks L
SP- Erik Johnson R
SP- Scott Snodgress L

CL- Addison Reed (24)
SU- Simon Castro (25)
RHP- Andre Rienzo (27)
LHP- Charlie Leesman (28)
LHP- Jose Quintana (25)
LR- Nestor Molina (26)

I think we're crazy enough to make that trade for Meija, and I think both him and the Mets will get sick of each other pretty quickly.
Matt Carpenter is another guy who doesn't have a position on the Cardinals, but should be a regular starter IMO. There is also plenty of room for upside on this team, but a lot of homegrown players could mean that this team would really stink if said players blow up in our faces, since this team will strike out a ton.

I like the Loney idea, also i think our INF and OF can stay in house and be competitive. Pitching we'll need some pieces. We stay in house it gives a lot of cash for a big SP and some solid RPs

Johnson and Snodgress should be our 4-5 soon

Although our SPs are pretty young with the exception on Peavy/Floyd who wont be here in 2015 im assuming

Interesting exercise.

First off, I have to wonder if Jerry (he'll be 79 in February of '15) will be owning the team in 2015, and if the team is sold, what kind of owner will we have?

It seems very obvious that all of Dunn, Rios and Peavy will be gone and a small chance Konerko could be signed to DH which frees up a ton of cash, yet most or all will need to be replaced.

Also, unless we see a drastic change in performance, both Beckham and Viciedo will become too expensive for what we get out of them, and will be traded.

First, next offseason - the FA's the Sox should go after are: James Loney and Martin Prado to replace Beckham and Rios.

Then in 2014 - with Dunn's contract expiring, the Sox should make a strong effort to sign Verlander away from the Tigers, especially if Chris Sale is locked into a below-market deal, and also either Colby Rasmus or Brett Gardner to hold down an OF spot. We could also use a solid setup guy since all of our experienced relief guys now will be gone - Jason Motte would be a good choice.

So here's my 2015 roster:

1B - James Loney
2B - Martin Prado
SS - Alexei Ramirez
3B - Jeff Keppinger
LF - Colby Rasmus
CF - Alejandro De Aza
RF - Trace Thompson / Keenyn Walker
DH - Paul Konerko
C - Josh Phegley

SP - Chris Sale
SP - Justin Verlander
SP - Jose Quintana
SP - Simon Castro
SP - Erik Johnson

CL - Addison Reed
SU - Jason Motte
SU - Donnie Veal
MR - Charlie Leesman
MR - Nate Jones
MR - Andre Rienzo
LR - Scott Snodgress

Bench:
C: Tyler Flowers - cheap for 3-4 more years.
IF: Carlos Sanchez
IF: Juan Silverio
OF: Courtney Hawkins
OF: Keenyn Walker / Trace Thompson

Sadly while I would love to see Pauly still here in 2015 I think the Barnum kid will take his place.

3 to 4 years. We are not used to waiting for prospects, because they would rush college players. Hawkins was playing high school ball in May.
