    Sox Trade Rumors

    I believe it's generally thought that when a player can dominate in AA he should be considered for promoting to the major league team. Most of our guys aren't there yet.

    I agree........maybe Lopez & Giolito break with the team next spring and a couple others before the season ends. We then go into 2019 with the young guys. I think a couple bats will be ready by then too. We should compete in 2019 and contend in 2020, which is the time to go get the FA we need to fill the gaps.

    The #WhiteSox have traded RHP Tyler Clippard to the Houston Astros in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Not expecting much of a return, good for Clippard though.

    Considering the only reason we took clippard was to offset money anything we get for him is a win. Even if it's just cash.

    Say Avi ends the season with a BA of 300 and and OPS of 850, would you trade him than or wait and see till June of 2018? A 3+WAR 26 year old who is just entering his prime should garner some serious interest. I dont want to trade him for anything less than a stellar return at least 1 top 100 prospect. Reason I bring this up is after this season Avi is two years away from free agency, and if he keeps producing will likely be very expensive to keep. Also the Sox have a ton of young OF prospects that should be ready for a call up right around the time we compete and he becomes a free agent.

    If we get a top guy in return....I'd move him in a heartbeat. I think he will be here one more year, maybe moved at deadline next year. I don't see a strong replacement in our system that is ready for MLB.

    Guys heres something I ran across
    Chris Kamka joins the podcast to give his 2020 White Sox lineup. He sees the White Sox signing a certain free agent in 2019 named Machado but with a position change.

    Machado would cost 300M over like 8 yrs and we would move him to 1st hoping he can handle the position

    I still believe that Stanton would be a great pick up NOW...He is signed thru 2028

    The sox are rebuilding and alot of people think with the reduced payroll that sometime around 2019 they would sign a free agent
    Giancarlo Stanton age 27 signed thru 2028 HAS CLEARED WAIVERS...

    ALOT OF MONEY BUT ALOT OF TALENT...WE WOULD HAVE HIM THRU HIS PRIME ALONG SIDE OF JIMENIZ, ROBERTS,ADD STANTON WHAT AN OUTFIELD
    ABREU MONCADA ANDERSON, BURGER, COLLINS

    MY THOUGHT IS ALL FREE AGENTS WILL BE JUST MORE COSTLY..PEOPLE ARE TALKING 400M TO 500M..FOR BRYANT HARPER TROUT ETC.
    STANTON ALONE WOULD BE A DRAW AT WHAT EVER WE CALL THE PARK NEXT YEAR...blasting 60 a year in our park would be fun to watch

    WOULD PACKAGE OF
    Avi Garcia, should pass thru waivers
    Blake Rutherford | Rank 5 Top 100 Prospects (#45)
    Dylan Cease | Rank: 8 Top 100 Prospects (#66)
    Luis Alexander Basabe | Rank: 20

    Why would one of the best defensive 3rd basemen in the past 10 years move to 1st?

    I don't think that package is far off, however Stanton has no trade clause, and has commented about wanting to go to winning team. Even the great potential we have to be good in 2019 - 2025, is just potential. Doubt he would agree to trade here

    Rotation next season could be led by Rodon, Gonzo, Reynaldo, Gio, with a 5th starter from our minors ...possibly Kopech .
    Trading Rodon is really risking another terrible season. We can't have Shields, Pelfrey, Holland and the tank crew in the bullpen pitching next season. Enough is enough. I hope Burdi is recovered in time to pitch next season. Fulmer is probably a lost cause.

    IMO Eloy's coming up next year. I bet he will rake at AA for the rest of the season.
