Jose Abreu

Sox interested in Edwin Diaz

Recommended Posts

Buy low option but still has a lot of trade value. Maybe we’re just trying to take a bad contract for him or just fleece the Mets. Probably wishful thinking

My guess is that it’s not serious interest and we’re just kicking the tires. The Mets make really weird trades so I like that we’re at least asking about it

Anything can make sense depending on the price.  That being said, I don’t envision the price being attractive here.

Diaz is a young closer, right? So he replaces Colome next year. He and Bummer head the bullpen with Colome flipped now. Or are the Sox actually building next year's division winning team now? Bullpen of Bummer in seventh, Diaz eighth and Colome ninth?

He is 25 years of age and 1 year removed from 57 saves with fantastic metrics.  Given his performance drop-off this year for his ERA and saves, one would presumably have a positive opinion as to how good he still is.  Even for a young team like the White Sox, having a deep bullpen is not a bad thing.  Of course, would they be interested in what the Sox would be willing to offer?  Trades can be surprising.  The Mets hypothetically could be interested in Sox prospects who have value but also have more uncertainty associated with them. Who knows?

If the Sox are trading for Diaz, he has to be the closer. Seems odd they would be willing to part with young talent to get him though. Mets traded Kelenic for him. They aren't going to give him away.

They also aren't going to get even close of what they traded for him and Cano.

Diaz + Nimmo? Pretty please. 

For what though?  Would they take a package centered around Dunning & Rutherford or Walker?  Even if you threw in Stiever that still feels light IMO.

Right they probably have too high of a price on him to the point where it makes sense for them to hold onto him and see if he bounces back.

I never said they would, but their asking price has to be sky high considering the circumstances.

I will say this, I am open to trading anyone in the organization outside of Moncada, Anderson, Eloy, Robert, Madrigal, Vaughn, Giolito, Kopech, & Cease.  Ideally I’d like to keep Dunning, but if he can somehow headline a trade for a controllable (3 years minimum) asset I’m not completely against it.

I dont see him being a headliner in a deal for anything great. Maybe next year at this time.

Oh yeah, I’m sure the TJS has suppressed his value.  Just saying he’s the first prospect not on my untouchable list.

Gotcha. Based on our comments in the other thread, we seem be on the same page in terms of current untouchables.

Exactly what a rebuilding team should not be doing, particularly this time of year.  Or the opposite of what this team should be doing.

Buying low on a high upside, controllable asset is exactly what a rebuilding team than plans on competing next year should be doing.  A move like just depends on the price and more likely than not it won’t be a price we like.  But in the off-chance they really like a guy like Rutherford then by all means let’s be part of the conversation.

Why not? The calendar moves quickly. Before you know it it'll be next season. If you can get this guy for nothing and get a veteran starter or two for nothing, with Robert and Collins up next season you ought to be able to contend in this division. Instead of trading Colome for nothing acquire this guy for nothing and you might have your bullpen set for next year. What prospects are you expecting to get? I think it makes sense, but I doubt this is happening. We aren't going to build to win next year and I know that. 

As it stands, we'll probably trade Colome and maybe Abreu and the way Jay is playing might get a very low level prospect for a team desperate for a veteran OF. I can pray Hahn actually is going to do this though with thoughts on next season. Just win baby.

If the price is right it makes plenty of sense.
