He’ll be throwing to James McCann. Wonder if that had anything to do with the decision? Maybe, but not as much as the $$$
For $55 million I would pitch even for the White Sox. I am glad Dallas Keuchel got the big money finally. He is the kind of pitcher who can pitch until his late 30’s, I think, because he doesn’t rely upon velocity to get people out. He can use location and smarts for a long time.
James gets $5.4 million next year. Two Hogs doing well.
The White Sox aren’t paying Grandal $18M/yr to sit on the bench, he’ll be the catcher.
They both may play. They can DH, catch or play first.
