    His ship had sailed here in Chicago
    He didn't want to be here
    The "Drake" thing
    The jersey cutting thing
    The Sox were going nowhere with him, they have a future now, maybe.

    Because JR, Hahn and KW discuss after the 2014 season when to stop signing FAs and just blow the team up.

    2016 was the indication with Sale as our top piece to deal. And his ****** attitude had to go.

    The White Sox should have kept him I mean Reinsdorf only cares about the White Sox and not the Bulls.

    To expedite a rebuild. For Yrs organization kept trading top prospect for proven big league commodities only to see those players regress in ChiTown. End result was a top heavy team completely devoid depth. Case in point the Todd Frazier, James Shields. The true low point of the Franchise was when via waivers, the salary of Alex Rios was dumped in the White Sox lap. No emphasis on analytics played a huge factor, and an organizational rebuild top to bottom was necessary. Clearly, the White Sox overvalued the players they acquired in the major trades (Sale, Eaton) & jury is still out on Quintana. Dealt away the final pieces (Robertson-Frazier-Kahnle) for spare parts, unless you believe in Blake Rutherford.

    Repositioning the organization was the rational behind the selloff, to emulate the Cubs build from within then flex the financial resources to add missing pieces in FA. White Sox are in mid stages of rebuild process. Need 'That Player' that turns the tide. Might be Jimenez or Madrigal, looked like it'd be Kopech prior to his injury.

    WS now have one deepest systems in baseball. Not all will prove quality big leaguers but a wave is coming on the South Side. I'm enthused to see the renderings.

    Basically, he didn't want to be in Chicago, and you can't blame him for that. He turned into a real dick about things ... wish the return had been better, but there is still lots of time for Moncada/Kopech to even things out.

    I always wanted Benitendi in that deal just because I thought he was a pure hitter, but I wasn't complaining about Moncada because I thought he had great upside.

    I think Moncada is going to pan out, I'm just not sure it's a 2B.
    He's not going to be a mega-star, but something like .275/35/110 wouldn't surprise me.
    His future in Chicago is probably 3B.

    Why do people associate a type of hitter with a position? Why would that ever matter?

    I know you're just referring to his fielding ability- but I just never understood that lol
