Sockin

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

Recommended Posts

I still think the Sox stand pat with Alex. I imagine Hahn is asking for the moon for Colome, and nobody will want to pay that.

Nationals just got Hudson. If Braves get Greene, it’s probably Brewers or bust

Nats need more than one arm though.

Does Hudson really take Nationals out of Colome? I feel Colome is a full tier above Hudson. Did the Phillies get someone other than Parker?

I think Parker is just a guy they took a flier on. They shouldn‘t be counting on him to pitch in high leverage situations. His stuff has diminished,

Nats have Doolittle, a nice arm in a guy named Suero and a whole bunch of garbage. Good god is there pen bad.

There had been a lot of Red Sox talk of backing off Diaz and jumping to Hudson. Maybe they are looking elsewhere for a closer.

Yeah that was my point - Phillies would still be in the market for a relief arm.

Nats farm is pretty weak. Sure they could swing a deal, but outside of their top guys not a whole lot appeals to me.

Yankees still need a starter. Hopefully Hahn  has at least dangled Lopez in case Cashman gets panicky.

Nats #4 prospect Wil Crowe was going to be the Sox pick if Gavin Sheets didn't make it to them in the 2nd in 2017.

Crowe immediately stands out to me as a potential trade fit, not sure if the Nationals would give up their minor league starter closest to the majors though?

Not sure.

Looks like Nats getting Elias though. Can't imagine they trade for three relievers so that would rule them out.

Lopez? Why in the world would we  trade Lopez?

With that news, Nats likely out on relief help. They opted to go down the cheaper trade route. 

Will be interesting to see if a contender jumps in for Colome here shortly. A deal could come together fast after weeks of build up?

I saw a tweet saying the Nats are saying they are going to trade for 3 relievers.

I haven't seen anything on what the Sox asking prices are.  This is either because

A.  They for some reason aren't serious in trading him

B.  They are doing the stealth thing again
