Who says no? 

Even post-game Cubs' radio call-in lunatics categorically say no, on behalf of White Sox fans.

This comes from the "meathead" take of why wouldn't X/Y/Z club trade any given superstar for 5-6 prospects (even thought the prospects all suck.)

Of course, in this case, you can't trade Vaughn in that type of move.  It's basically crazy talk.  And why you would include Rodon when his value is negative...it would be better just to release him if they don't feel his value will appreciate between now and mid-season 2021.

The rest is just noise/names.

12 hours later and I am still so damn happy about this. What a home run signing. No better fit for this lineup than Grandal on the FA market. Absolutely fantastic beginning to hopefully an amazing offseason.

This is probably one of the worst trades in MLB history, so probably Manfred.

You want to give them Robert & Madrigal while you’re at it?!

Stoney was on the Score today and sure as hell made it seem the RF addition would be a lefty hitter.  Mentioned Wheeler and MadBum as the two main pitching possibilities.

Wheeler >>>>>>>>>> MadBum IMO.

I personally think a lefty OF is less critical now with Grandal in the mix.

I am confused by Stone's whole role here. I don't think sox decisionmakers would actually give him stuff knowing his new play to be the sox...whatever he's doing now.

But I also don't think it's uninformed speculation, maybe it's just at the scout level or something.

What about Puig for our RF (good defense settling in with the other Cubans) , Dickerson for DH (productive lefty bat) with Wheeler and either Miley or Alex Wood?

Morosi was on with those Mac and that other guy yesterday on the Score and said he heard the Astros have interest in McCann and that the Sox match up well for a Jon Gray trade

Interesting.  No idea what the Astros have they could help us.  I’m a huge Gray fan, but would definitely prefer spending the money and getting Wheeler.  Did he say why we match up well?

Totally my opinion but I feel like unless the Sox get overwhelmed, McCann isn’t going anywhere. Feels like they really like him in the room. 

Agreed, I would be shocked

I too would be shocked if they got rid of Giolito's personal catcher after the year Lucas had.

Well now that Abreu has been signed my number one expectation hits. 2-3 years and hopefully year three an option and more money than people like was my expectation. By guaranteeing the third year, I am saying that was correct.

I have a feeling Puig is next. While we focus on Wheeler.

 

Please no.  Grandal gave me reasons for optimism, a Puig signing would be the definition of same old White Sox.

As long as we land Wheeler getting Puig on a 2 yr deal would be fine by me.
