Sox in pursuit of Puig

Recommended Posts

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal 24s25 seconds ago

The #Dodgers have maintained they will trade Puig only if they get another outfielder. Reddick is that outfielder.

 

Buster Olney ‏@Buster_ESPN 14s14 seconds ago

Addition of Reddick for the Dodgers gives FO a better position from which to trade Yasiel Puig. White Sox want him in any LAD deal.

Just industry rumblings, I've heard nothing concrete. Just interesting in response to Olney saying CWS wants Puig.Chris Cotillo added,

 

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.

 

Figured we needed a thread just for Puig since we don't know who it's for

The #Dodgers, who have had OF Yasiel Puig on the market, now can move him after getting Josh Reddick.

I approve of this trade. Actually floated it last night before this talk came up.

These should just be moved to the Shields trade, no?

Nah. Could be Shields but could be something else. It's worthy of its own thread.

They just got Hill. Not saying they still couldn't get Shields but we could be moving other parts.

Yup, that's why I made a new thread. We don't know that it's Shields

Shields would be insurance.

If the Sox pick up Puig wouldnt that kind of label them as buyers at the deadline?

They'd just be caught in between as usual. Not that I would complain about a Shields for Puig trade but it'd definitely be an oddball given the situation.

Here the thing about Puig......one, he's been bad this year. Two, he was hurt last year. And three, he's signed through 2018, and IMO, we won't be contenders until 2018. So we really only get 1 year to win with Puig? Not saying I would rather keep Shields, just saying this doesn't really help our future as much unless our plan is to flip him once he regains some value.

Puig only has three years of control left. Their interest is pretty telling to me that they plan on competing next year and pretty much signals zero chance at a complete rebuild. It would make zero sense to trade Sale and Quintana and then turn around and trade for Puig.

Hill is on the DL with a blister that won't go away. No guarantee he pitches soon.

Expect #Dodgers to remain in starting pitching market. Remember: Hill is on the DL, and LA has a 4-man rotation at the moment.

Or they trade for him while his value is low, he has a bounce back and they trade him for a huge profit.

If that's their play that's a pretty big gamble considering he's due ~$20 million in salary over the next 2+ years.

Not if you trade Shields for him.

He is wrong when he throws out his "maybe's" and "possibly's" but he probably knows for sure this rumor is BS if he is flat out saying its false. IMO

Puig LF Tilson CF Eaton RF and DH Melky. That'd take away Morneau.

Morneau has been one of the more enjoyable hitters to watch since he came back.
