Colome remains with White Sox, who always had ample interest in him

Recommended Posts

You have so many teams that need late inning help, it really feels like the Sox should be able to get great value for Colome or Bummer:

Phillies, Nationals, Braves, Cubs, Brewers, Cardinals, Dodgers, Red Sox, Rays, Twins

I am actually suprised there hasn't been much movement considering how many teams need help/hard deadline.  I'd have to imagine we start seeing some smoke in the next couple days.

Asking prices must be through the roof. There's a lot of decent arms that could/should be available.

Bruuuccceee on The Score thinks the Sox move Colome for pitching if the price is right but also thinks the Sox will keep Bummer as their closer.

What kind of return would Colome net the White Sox in a trade? Pretending he was being traded to the White Sox, would we get someone like Cease? Stiever? McClue? Dunning?

Of the guys you listed, probably closest is McClure.

Not sure who he would compare to among current Sox arms but Josiah Gray (Dodgers) would be a solid return. Spencer Howard (Phillies) would be a great get but would likely cost a great deal more than Colome. The idea of Gohara from Braves (LH fireballer w/issues) is interesting but a bit difficult to pigeonhole.

There are a few players from the Twins that are ranked a little lower but are close to the bigs I would be interested in. Nick Gordon, Stephen Gonsalves and Luke Raley would all be interesting pieces to get back from them.

Both the Dodgers and Braves are going to have 40 man issues this offseason.  These are the teams that theoretically you should be able to extract the most value from because they'd rather get something for their assets as opposed to holding and creating roster casualties in the offseason.

There's also a ton of teams in Limbo though, you could say even the Sox are pretty much there.

Asking price should be through the roof and Hahn is quite good at extracting the maximum when he has something good to trade.  This will definitely not be a salary dump.

With it being a hard trade deadline, I'm sure sellers are keeping their asking prices high. Contenders will be forced to pony up if they want to add talent for a WS run. 

Prices always come down to reality closer to the deadline, but Sox shouldn't let Colome/Bummer/etc. go on the cheap.

I read somewhere the Sox consider Bummer a closer candidate of future. Did anybody see that? If so and they keep him I hope you all remember I guaranteed on here we're not trading Bummer.

Colome ... if the Yankees or Braves or Dodgers or whomever want him so badly why aren't they getting it done. Maybe Hahn can pull off the steal of the century. Yes I hate "flipping" players but if he can get 4 can't miss prospects or 3 for him I guess I can't complain. With him I go back to the original deal. We get him for Narvaez? And that's it? I keep thinking we'll just get a similar prospect back for Colome on the flip. Just an Omar Narvaez ceiling type guy. That's dumb in that scenario to deal next year's closer for somebody only as good as Narvaez.

His value has clearly changed since the trade. And we are not getting 4 guys back for him, especially cant miss prospects. If he gets traded it will be for a really good prospect or 2 who are ready to contribute next year. And the reason they will be more valuable is because they will have more years of cheaper control.

I do think you are right about Bummer, the only way he leaves is if it is for a kings ransom.

Also the reason it isn't done yet is because the closer we get to the deadline the more panicked these teams will become and give us greater leverage in negotiations.

Sox are in a good position because guys like Colome and Bummer are not rentals, they do not have to be traded. I really think we will see contender's ponying up to acquire playoff push help, and relievers are always in demand.

I wouldn't trade him. I think they  get better value waiting.   It's worth the  risk.

A rumor!

They do really need a couple arms.  Greene is going to command more though. I hope SOMETHING develops.

That anyone who has positive potential Sox news is correct and anyone who has negative Sox news is clearly a troll?

To not trust Twitter insiders, but close enough.
