I absolutely am and it would be great if the Sox were too. If Heuer+ gets it done I would make that trade in a heartbeat even though Heuer has been nails this year.

What’s the point of adding a RF if we’re forced to decimate our bullpen?  Heuer is of our four best relievers at the moment, so I’m pretty surprised they’d move him for a 2020 playoff run.

He’s only made 20 career starts, so no reason to give up on him yet over bad peripherals.  And my guess is Kopech is the centerpiece of whatever package we’re giving up.

You're going to have to give up a major piece to get a Woodruff though. Between Cease, Dunning and Kopech, Cease seems the least refined to me and the most questionable given his erratic mechanics. He has managed to do alright, but he's going to get eaten up against playoff teams if he keeps up the way he has. I'm sure he'll be very good at some point, but I wouldn't call it giving up on him in a trade like that.

If you look at the entire chain if this were to happen, you'd have traded Quintana plus any secondary prospects included in Woodruff deal for Eloy and Woodruff. Not too shabby.

What the hell is he has no names but Sox fans will like it?  I guarantee a  minimum of 30% of Soxtalk will not like it no matter what.

Brewers fan getting triggered on Twitter by me saying Woodruff might be the guy. Called me a ‘moron’ and give us Luis Robert. Said you’d probably be getting Kopech. He goes YEAH WE WONT DO EVEN KOPECH + ANOTHER TOP 100 SPECT... told him hey man, I wouldn’t get too personal, or you’ll be getting White Sox Twitter all over you tonight. 😂

Agreed there. Thinning out the bullpen could hurt more than a RF would help considering the lineup is already highly productive. Just stick Engel out there and let the other eight guys do the damage. Its not like he can't hit one 450 feet on occasion himself. I honestly don't get how he isn't the man out there now. Great speed and defense along with good power, that's good enough for this lineup.

I hope it's not for Hader

If Heuer is involved, it would theoretically make much more sense.

Well, he is probably correct.

I highly doubt we move a pen piece for a RF but I could see a pen piece going for another SP as part of a package

If not Steve is right, he said Sox fans will be very happy. That would indicate their top prospects at least for this trade, are not involved.

didn't he say "should be happy?" Not "will be" or "very happy."

I understand that, but Heuer has thrown 10 innings. To think a guy like Marte wouldn’t have a bigger effect wouldn’t be accurate.

I’m more concerned about our bullpen without Heuer than our offense with Mazara / Engel platooning in RF.

If we do move Heuer, I wonder if the plan is to immediately send Lopez & Rodon to the pen.
