Trade Deadline Thread

Recommended Posts

A 26 year old catcher in AAA and a 21 year old with a 336 OPS at A Ball. Neither in the top prospects of the brewers system.

Wow, the Sox minor leaguers must really suck.

If the cost is going to be similar I'd rather have Baez.

Baez isn’t good against RHP which is what we need.

We really should have sold Lynn and Rodon and given up right Jack? I mean it's impossible to get players right now for us.

They re-signed Lynn so keeping him is fine.

Ouch...this one hurts.  With Escobar out there I still felt it could be a positive trade deadline.  Now that seems unlikely.

One thing no one seems to be talking about: Trevor Story has play all of zero of his nearly 6,000 MLB innings at 2B.  Zero.  We've seen a guy who's a positive defensively on the left side of the infield but a liability on the right.  I get that the middle infield shares more similarities than 3B and 2B, but yikes...zero?!  Are we even sure he can turn his head to the right on a double play?

Still time to trade Rodon and give up.

I'm guessing this is a joke, and a decent one at that.

Just keep him and let the chips fall where they may.

Say what you want about Bob but he actually gives us a legit rumor and a name to go with it. He's 1000 times better than the food guys. Watch them piggy back on that rumor soon.

The Sox aren’t thirsty, they like their team fwiw. At least, like it enough to do any deals on their terms. If I had to guess, they are concentrating on a reliever mostly

Yes he was spot on when he said Escobar was traded to the Sox

He wasn't. But we've known for years now he gets info from Kenny for sure.

Why is the Trevor Story thread locked after the Nightengale tweet saying we're interested?

Because that means that he's going to the Giants.

Not really. Don’t assume the Sox are all that interested in giving up top prospects for a rental. Enough dominos are falling to question that seriously.

There is a thread specifically for the White Sox right next to it with the new information.

FWIW, Jimmy Lambert only went 2 IP.  Could mean #hugwatch, or he is getting the Cease TBA start, or nothing.

I think he said the deal was on but the Sox player(s) had a physical issue so it fell through. In all honesty though, that would have been very early for the Dbacks to settle for a minor return. Unless the market for all these guys is much colder than sellers think it is.
