Let's think about this for a second, all the players on the market other than Thorton and Crain are really more than half year rentals. Alexei , Rios, and Peavy all have contracts going past this season. The more time that passes, the more i'm starting to see the big picture. While the White Sox are in "sell mode", are they really? Don't get me wrong, i'm sure they are weighing offers each and everyday, but where is the obligation to trade these guys? Just because we're having a bad year, doesn't mean these guys HAVE to go, in fact, which of our guys is really at peak value right now? Rios has been iffy for over a month now, Alexei's power and defense has to be a concern for teams, and Peavy's health is scarring teams from really going all in. It almost seems like the Sox are playing desperate just to see exactly what the league has to offer for their players. Considering all these guys genuinely want to play here, and the fact that their contracts aren't really restricting us financially, i feel like the Sox are almost throwing smoke screen to see what teams come out with some juicy offers. So my question is, would it really surprise you to see nobody go this deadline? I just have a hard time really believing the Sox are going to sell for the sake of selling, when they have the opportunity to showcase for the rest of the season and possibly deal during the off-season.
