    Not at all coconut. Still have Melky, and others to move. Also draft next year with hopefully a top 3 pick.

    Yeh, the draft should net a couple nice players. it's good that we now can go for BPA. I realize we have a few more pieces,but, don't think any will bring a impact player.

    Agreed a couple more small moves to be made, time to ride out this dud season and lock in a top 3 pick.

    I found this on Tito Polo

    Listed at just 5í9 185 lbs, Polo doesnít look like a slugger, but he has always shown surprising pop for his size and now seems to be putting it to better use in games as his approach at the plate improves.
    Combined with his plus speed, this newfound in-game power definitely makes Polo a prospect worth keeping an eye on. Heís an aggressive base-stealer who has racked up 105 SB in the last three years. That speed also helps make him competent in left and center, although a weak arm makes him a liability in right
    Polo isnít going to be a star, but a quality starting left fielder at some point down the road isnít out of the question.

    Also he has had good OBP skills..

    Once we add Beer in 2018 it will be a pretty nice rebuild. One that will set the Sox up for sustained success!

    We have a deep OF group in our system now. Who in our system projects as a DH?

    The Beauty of this rebuild is we are getting depth all over the place. When we start winning some games in a few years, some of those extra pieces will be the perfect trade bait to build a contender

    The third of three Yankees first-round choices in 2013 after Eric Jagielo and Aaron Judge, Clarkin signed for $1,650,100 as the 33rd overall pick. He pitched just 178 innings in his first four pro seasons because of ankle and elbow injuries that didn't require surgery and a torn meniscus in his knee that did. The White Sox acquired him in July as part of the trade that sent Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle to New York.

    Clarkin has regained his fastball velocity after his layoff, working at 90-93 mph and peaking at 95 with some sink. His downer curveball was his best pitch as an amateur and isn't as sharp now, but it is still effective. There are days when his changeup is the biggest weapon in his arsenal, and he also has developed a slider.

    Clarkin throws strikes, keeps the ball down and can spot his fastball on either side of the plate. His ability to locate his pitches will be key if he doesn't develop a true plus pitch. He's still just 22, so there's still time for him to improve and mature into a mid-rotation starter.

    Plenty of OF prospects, plenty of P prospects, maybe they can bottom out in the second half and at least get to #2, don't think we're making it to #1.

    I don't see any reason to hold on to Abreau at this point....If not at this trade deadline ,then in the off season Hahn should see what he can get for him.
