Sox interested in Encarnacion per Morosi

Recommended Posts

Not saying it wouldn't hurt, but I can't see Mariners giving up Haniger without getting some pitching prospects back.  With Dunning's elbow and Hansen's yips, unfortunately Cease is really the only one with significant trade value.  

Trading Cease for Haniger is just a bad idea. I'd rather get Mallex Smith back and give them something inconsequential. The Sox desperately need a CF to replace Engel.

So the White Sox give up Abreu and a top 30 prospect in baseball to get back Encarnacion and Haniger?

sure, why wouldn't that make sense from a pure baseball trade value standpoint (not saying I'dwant the Sox to do this)

Check the tweet I posted in the Manny thread...this makes sense now 

no reason to have Yonder on the team if true.

Yeah the Yankees were interested in Alonso before. With their current options being a Bird/Voit platoon, Alonso still makes sense for them, even if their interest was purely about landing Machado before.

Would have preferred Encarnacion to Alonso, but no changing that now so this makes no sense. If there's a deal in place for Jose in place would be the only scenario, and that seems like it would be a complete 180 from the front office has been saying.

Or it could be that the Sox and Astros have a deal in place for Abreu. Jose can go to the playoffs  with Houston and come right back in 2020.

If we get encarnacion I’d gather he wouldn’t actually play here. 

Also just going to block out that Dan Clark tweet to enjoy my day.

Encarnacion + Harper is one plan

Alonso + Machado is the other

 

That’s the way I see it in terms of why we’d still have interest in a DH

Morosi said on hot stove the White Sox are in on trying to acquire Edwin encarnacion, thoughts? 

No, unless they are moving Abreu....and there appear to be openings in that regard if they are so inclined.

But still no....the love for aging players on 2 year contracts...

 And for goodness sakes don't trade pitching.

Encarnacion is going to make 20 million in 2019. Just saw that on MlB. At 35 does anybody think he's worth that much money . . . and whomever we trade for him. I don't think so. 

No based off his contract and buy out he is under water about 9M.

What do you think they would do with Alonso if they did plan one? Trade him again? Or would they trade Abreu instead?

I think they'd trade Alonso in the event that we don't get Manny but do get Harper

White Sox get:

Edwin Encarnacion

Mallex Smith

Mariners get:

Luis Alexander Basabe

Kade McClure

 

Thoughts?

I'd do that in a heartbeat...which probably means that the Mariners would hang up the phone if that was offered to them. Haha.

I would never do that trade ever.

I would think he probably would be in an Encarnacion trade, although I really don’t think there is much to this rumor.

This story also says the Sox are looking at Martinez of the Cardinals, who has no real position now and started in the Sox organization I believe:

He’s a DH only. If Sox really are interested in these guys, then they are 100 percent trading one of Jose or Alonso.

Why are we interested in either Martinez or Encarnacion? What hole do either of those fill? We don’t need any more 1B/DH/LF types.
