    Sox Trade Rumors

    I talked to a couple people in the organization who said all top 10 picks will sign once they're done with the CWS. Some already have.

    Sox Trade Rumors

    Also we've had Heyman mention the Dodgers as a real possibility for Quintana and Joel Sherman expects the Yankees to go after Quintana.

    I also expect the Astros, Rockies & Cubs to all be in on Quintana to some extent.

    Plus the Rays and Pirates close to competing. The Rays are 4.5 back in the division and 0.5 GB the second WC, so Archer, Cobb and Odorizzi may stay out. The Pirates are 5 GB in a very winnable NL central and they'll be getting some guys back. So Cole IMO will most likely stay put.

    So that means the two big names could be Quintana and Sonny Gray. Possibly Cueto if they think he'll opt out this winter, but he'll just be a rental as would Darvish if Rangers sell.

    The Dodgers could go after a rental but the other 4 teams need cost controlled young SP to add to their rotations for years to come IMO.

    Cafardo’s Latest: Gray, Astros, Stanton, Phils, Cards, BoSox
    June 17th, 2017 at 7:19pm CST • By Connor Byrne
    The AL West rival Astros and Athletics are mutually interested in making a trade that would involve Oakland right-hander Sonny Gray, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. The last-place A’s have been closely monitoring the Astros’ system, per Cafardo, during a period in which Houston’s four best starters (Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers, Charlie Morton and Collin McHugh) are on the disabled list. Gray, who would likely slot in third in a healthy Astros rotation, is only running a 4.44 ERA through 52 2/3 innings, but his secondary stats are encouraging and he’s under control via arbitration through 2019. As such, he’d warrant a strong return for the A’s.

    More rumblings from Cafardo as the trade deadline approaches:

    If the Marlins place right fielder Giancarlo Stanton on the trade block in the coming months, the NL East rival Phillies would be a sensible landing spot, opines Cafardo. The cellar-dwelling Phillies are a big-market team with the money and the prospects to swing a deal for Stanton (who’s due nearly $300MM over the final 10 years of his contract), observes Cafardo. Stanton has a full no-trade clause, though, so there’s no guarantee he’d approve a deal to Philadelphia or anywhere else. Further complicating matters, Cafardo has heard that the Phillies would “need” to acquire fellow Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich in a deal involving Stanton. Even though Yelich is under control for reasonable prices through the 2022 campaign, he could end up on the block.
    Given that they’re five games back in their division and 10.5 out of a wild-card spot, the Cardinals don’t look like surefire buyers at the moment. Nevertheless, a pair of right-handed-hitting right fielders – the Tigers’ J.D. Martinez and the White Sox’s Avisail Garcia – have been frequently linked to the Redbirds this year, relays Cafardo. Martinez, a free agent-to-be who’s on an $11.75MM salary, is hitting a torrid .310/.398/.681 with 11 home runs in 133 plate appearances for the scuffling Tigers. Garcia, who’s much cheaper than Martinez ($3MM) and under control through 2019, is in the midst of a career year (.337/.378/.549 with 10 HRs in 262 PAs) for the soon-to-sell White Sox.

    Well you know what Schwarber is not. He is not a major league level catcher, infielder or outfielder and he cannot pitch. And he cannot hit LH pitching at all.

    Schwarber was over-rated but not any more. Epstein won't trade him and most teams, I believe, would not trade much for him.

    SOME TRADE RUMORS FROM THIS AM
    The Braves are once again in the market for controllable starters, reports David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution it’s Archer and Quintana that sit atop Atlanta’s wish list, O’Brien continues. The White Sox, of course, are known to be open to moving Quintana, but there’s no guarantee that the Rays would even consider moving Archer.

    Red Sox are “keen” for Gray, though they’re also considering aiming for a power-hitting third baseman and acquiring another reliever rather than bolstering the rotation. Stacking another arm alongside Joe Kelly and Craig Kimbrel at the back of the ’pen could give Boston a trio similar to the three-headed monster similar to the 2014 Royals (I THINK WE HAVE A COUPLGUYS)

    YANKEES
    Davidoff notes that the Yankees could very well look into rotation upgrades, speculating that Quintana and Gray will be among the names they explore.

    WOULD THIS BE SOMETHING THE NATIOALS AND SOX COULD AGREE ON

    Robertson to the Nationals for Andrew Stevenson | Rank: 5 Position: OF

    Team: Syracuse Chiefs (AAA) ETA: 2018 Age: 23 Bats: L Throws: L Considered to be the best defensive center fielder in college baseball leading up to the 2015 Draft, Stevenson has carried that reputation with him to the professional ranks. His reads and jumps are outstanding and few players show more range, with some scouts grading his defensive ability as a 70 on the 20-80 scale. At the plate, Stevenson shows top-of-the-order potential from the left side with his knack for quality contact, strong on-base skills and speed that produces plus run times to first base and makes him a threat on the basepaths.

    HE SURE WOULD LOOK NICE WITH ROBERTS

    THEN LETS HELP THOSE YANKEES
    I would like to see the White Sox package Frazier and Quintana to the Yankees for
    Clint Frazier age 22 OF/Few prospects can match Frazier's lightning bat speed and raw power.

    Jorge Mateo age 21 CF /One of the fastest runners in baseball, Mateo has top-of-the-scale speed and led the Minors with 82 steals in 2015 Few players can match his combination of quickness and arm strength, though he has been erratic at shortstop and is more likely to wind up at second base or in center field.

    Miguel Andujar age 21 3rd/ Andujar has a quick right-handed bat that generates impressive raw power, Andujar's most impressive tool is his cannon of an arm.

    Jorge Guzman age 21 RHP /With an extremely fast arm and without an excessive amount of effort in his delivery, Guzman can work with a 97-103 mph fastball as a starter. Guzman's control and command require a lot of refinement

    AN OUTFIELD OF FRAZIER , ROBERTS, STEVENSON,MATEO,PICK 3

    Yankees need relief pitching as well.
    Perhaps trade Robertson and/or Kahnle to them instead of Quintana.

    Bottom line.......we need a couple outfield bats out of these next moves. I also think we need power OF bats....not the speedster CF types.......we have lots of them.

    It would be nice to clean house, get some more young talent and start bringing a few guys up from Charlotte.
    The Sox I believe have the worst or near worst record in the AL right now, lets keep that going.
    Yankees, Red Sox, Rockies, Dodgers ... whoever will start getting very serious soon, July 31st is not that far away.

    READ THIS TODAY ABOUT THE YANKEES NEEDS...QUINTANA AND ROBERTSON

    "It makes sense for the Yankees because those two guys solve a lot of problems for them, "a team executive said on Thursday, "but the cost is going to be painful in terms of prospects. Even if they move now to beat Houston to the punch, (White Sox GM) Rick Hahn can still dictate the price."

    What would it cost?

    The consensus among the scouts and executives was that to get both Quintana and Robertson, it would take two blue-chippers and two other significant prospects.

    Here's what that probably means: one player would be Clint Frazier or Blake Rutherford; another would be Chance Adams or Justus Sheffield; and then someone like Wade or Andujar, as well as a younger pitcher like Albert Abreu.

    SAY IT WOULD TAKE THOSE HIGHLIGHTED AND MAYBE MATEO INPLACE OF RUTHERFORD
