    Trade Deadline: Sox Make No Moves

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 10:06 PM) From Whitesoxdave FWIW I was told the #WhiteSox turned down a Benintendi, Kopech, Johnson/Ball, and PTBNL package for Quintana from #RedSox Meh. Only two players that that excite me. Kopech as the 2nd piece is unacceptable, IMO. Glad they didn't take that deal.

    Trade Deadline: Sox Make No Moves

    QUOTE (CaliSoxFanViaSWside @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 09:14 PM) Not surprised one iota that we kept Sale and Q . Look what the Yankees got for Chapman for a a rental. Then figure the time Sale and Q have left and no matter what the return we got it wouldn't be enough. We can still get productive cheap years from them and then trade them for a haul if they stay healthy. Maybe we see Shield or Gonzales moved later but if you look at how we entered this season with the 4 and 5 spots in turmoil and look at how the top 5 are pitching now the Sox could have a pretty good rotation next year especially if Shields and Gonzo finish as strong as they have been pitching lately. Let's say Jerry opens up the checkbook , long shot I know, but the lack of moves could be tied to Jerry saying something like that. Even though it's a thin free agent class there is still going to be some quality that could help the Sox. Cespedes( if he opts out), Reddick, Kenley Jansen, Lucroy ,Dexter Fowler, Ian Desmond. Add some OBP ,power and relief pitching and all of a sudden you have a team with direction . Maybe Melky and Robertson get moved in the offseason to free up some money. Just sayin' things CAN get better. I agree w what yore saying. But Lucroy and Dexter have team options that will certainly be exercised.

    Why watch / listen / care?

    QUOTE (South Side Fireworks Man @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 09:35 PM) Sox need to outbid everyone for him this offseason. No excuses not to spend money if they try to claim they are going for it in 2017. Spending a boat load of money on Josh Reddick is not wise.

    Why watch / listen / care?

    Because I love white sox baseball, and it's how I fill my summer evenings. If they continue to fall further, I will probably watch less, but I'll always turn the game on when I'm at home with nothing better to do. While obviously a long shot, id love to see the Sox get hot and make things interesting. A 15-5 stretch and they may be back within spitting distance. Is that gonna happen? More than likely not, but ya never know. I always root for Sox wins - nothing else interests me all that much until CBB season starts. I get that some fans and frustrated and don't want to watch / support the sox anymore. I get it. But no reason to try to convince other fans not to follow their favorite team. You do you.

    Charlie Tilson Being Called Up

    QUOTE (pettie4sox @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 04:11 PM) He just replaces Duke or is did a subsequent move already been made? Rodon took Dukes spot. Shuck optioned. Tilson takes his spot.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    QUOTE (TRU @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 02:48 PM) To be perfectly honest, I would be just fine if they said Moncada, Benintendi, and Devers for Sale. Done Deal. Obviously, I don't know the specifics of the discussions, but if were dicking around with lottery ticket A Ball players being added im just dumbfounded by it. That's 3 of the top 23 prospects in baseball, 2 of which are performing at a high level in Double A. That's MORE than enough for Chris Sale. This will more than likely be an unpopular take on the proposed Sale packages There has been exactly ZERO indication that the Bo Sox would be Moncada for anyone.

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 02:35 PM) Trying to compete with Sale and Quintana has worked exactly zero times. It's time for something else. Ugh. This is stupid. The Sox would have traded Sale and Q if they got the offers they wanted. Clearly they didn't.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    QUOTE (Deadpool @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 02:35 PM) I think more frustration is rooted in the fact that there are a lot of assets they should have moved prior to the deadline. I don't think you move Melky and Frazier, 2 of your 3 best offensive pieces, if you keep Sale and Q. Same could be said for Robertson.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    QUOTE (Tony @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 02:32 PM) Which is the wrong way. That is an opinion. I get your stance, but you don't trade Q and Sale unless you get what you want, and so long as you have those dudes, you may as well try to compete.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    At this point, trading Sale or Q is just gonna piss me off regardless, because they'd be leaving so many other trade opportunities in the dust. If you trade one of those two, you may as well trade everyone not locked up long term - Melky, Frazier, Robertson being the ones that may bring back the most - because you arent competing in 2017 without Sale and/or Q. At this point, I have to imagine we get one trade, at most.

    QUOTE (bmags @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 02:23 PM) That team is still terrible. This team is 3 games under .500 with Abreu and Frazier, their two best players, having the worst years of their career. I don't think its crazy for that team to be in contention. And if not, then they can trade everyone next July. Its how the Sox roll.

    QUOTE (dmbjeff @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 02:20 PM) They are going to hope Tilson can be an everyday CF, sign a FA bat to play OF/DH(Reddick, Desmond type) and a C Ramos/Weiters. This sellout thing just isn't going to happen. That's fine, but 2017 is a boom or bust year because then in 2018, they have to replace Melky, Lawrie and Frazier. This just makes the most sense to me, assuming they can't get the king ransom's for Sale and Q. I'd try to get Carlos Gomez on a 1 year deal. Let Tilson be the 4th OF.

    James shields drawing some buzz

    I see the chances of Shields opting out as about 5%. The dude isn't going to get a deal at $22M AAV over the next two. He'd be an idiot to opt out.

    QUOTE (SoxPride18 @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 01:21 PM) Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale 26s26 seconds ago The Chicago #Whitesox say that unless something dramatically changes, will keep Chris Sale and Jose Quintana. Good, that means they are not budging, and they shouldn't.

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 01:06 PM) I would be shocked if it is. Considering how he was used, despite him not being the greatest, it was a sign of the towel being waved. Of course, except for Sale and Q, most of the Sox "chips" can probably clear waivers. Who, exactly? Frazier, Melky, Robertson, Gonzalez, Lawrie, Eaton aren't clearing waivers.

    QUOTE (ChiSox59 @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 11:59 AM) For Jharel Cotton...their #13 prospect. Has to be more. And the Dodgers can't expect Hill to push them over hte top. He's been good, but I wouldn't get too excited about him pushing them through in a playoff series. Holmes, Montas and Cotton. Not bad for 2 months of 2 slightly above average players.

    Sox in pursuit of Puig

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 12:03 PM) Chris Cotillo ‏@ChrisCotillo 27m27 minutes ago Some rumblings in recent days about a deal that could send Yasiel Puig to the White Sox for James Shields. @Buster_ESPN says CWS want Puig. I approve of this trade. Actually floated it last night before this talk came up.

    QUOTE (bmags @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 12:02 PM) While there is a possibility Dodgers are going to swing Reddick/Puig out to us, I'd put it more likely that we're done. If we do sell in the offseason, I hope it is without our current management. If we buy... The Sox aren't done. They may not blow the whole thing up, but they're not done. And Reddick would hold no appeal to the Sox. He's a FA at year end.

    QUOTE (OmarComing25 @ Aug 1, 2016 -> 11:48 AM) From Dave Cameron's deadline chat today: Jimmy: Benintendi/Rodriguez/Devers/Swihart for Sale. Deal? Dave: That's a big overpay for Boston. C'mon Dave, big overpay? Benintendi and Devers are the only two that excite me. Rodriguez is a meh back of the rotation arm for me. Swihart is a throw in. Benintendi excites me, and Devers is a definitely a nice prospect, but further away. I wouldn't be only OKAY with that trade for Q, not for Sale.

    White Sox Listening on Sale

    What's gonna be most frustrating to me is if Sale is moved, but Sox hold onto pieces like Frazier, Melky, Robertson, Shields, Gonzalez. If you trade Sale, trade everyone cause you're going to suck anyway. I don't think he's going to get traded, but we're sort of running out of time to make other moves if he is.
