The only even lukewarm rumor involving the Sox is Tepera. He'd be nice to get but I'm started to get worried that the trail on Escobar and other 2B options has gone completely cold.

I get the impression that we are going to get one or two relievers, just from the smoke and information that’s out there. The only real smoke that’s out there right now for 2nd base is Story but none of the big national writers have connected us to him other than Passan so it’s a mystery if we are going to acquire one at the deadline. We really need to prioritize the bullpen though because it will help stretch out Michael Kopech’s innings plus it would be nice to have a setup man for Liam Hendricks.

It's been relatively quiet so far this week, especially considering the number of teams selling and quite a few teams really needing an upgrade or two.  This could be one of those deadlines when many trades happen on Friday.

The Sox have been very quiet.  I'm sure they're working on things, but it's concerning we're not even hearing rumors.

They are usually pretty quiet with the way they operate. I wouldn't be too worried yet.

White Sox being quiet either means stealth bombs or doing nothing.

That makes me nervous.

I hope the Giants get him

Same, Giants are a lowkey fun team. Everything Zaidi has done has been a mystery, but it's mainly just "we are a top organization and shouldn't need to sell to the studs, just use our overwhelming advantages to find talent in every crevice" and it has worked.

That is a long fake quote.

Go Giants! New fav NL team

And I can't see the Sox paying $30 million to two relievers next year without it causing other roster problems.  Yes Kimbrel is that good, but it isn't the best use of resources for the team.

Today is the 9th anniversary of Escobar being traded away by the Sox. Let's bring him home today.

It's amazing to see that that same due has become a power hitting trade commodity in this league.

Oh for sure.  I just imagine them trying to get 3 guys, in 2 trades so i piggy backed someone with EE.

Meh, he's just a guy.

But at the right price, I'd take a flier on him. He can't be worse than whats here already.

He's certainly annoying to watch, but hard to deny that he has been pretty effective the past few seasons

He's effective, sure.  But he's probably my least favorite pitcher to watch....like ever.

Speaking of 9, we are 9 days away from seeing Luis Robert roam CF at Wrigley.
