Kimbrel with his contract has no surplus value, I‘d be surprised if the prospect price is huge

We all wonder how "steep". What would the Cubs want, besides the contract? That is the big question.

Both the White Sox and the Rays would probably consider having the Cubs pick up some/all of the money on that, and the Cubs already did so for the Yankees.

This. Kimbrel's only surplus value should be just "deadline surging".  Dude is on a market value deal.  Trading legitimate prospects for him would be a terrible move.

If the Sox are giving up more prospects to save money at this point in time, I will lose my MF mind.

If the Sox get Kimbrel, they are serious about payroll the next few years.  They don't add a relief pitcher with that price tag without it.

I have to imagine the Cubs are looking to dump dollars, and will send him to a team that will pay his money.

Since day 1, Kimbrel has been my #1 target that I wanted the Sox to target at the deadline. Make it happen, Rick!!

JR approves on contingent that he drives a lockout and cancels 2022 salaries.

Agreed comptlely.  Just responding to Balta's comment about Cubs eating $.  I will lose alot of faith in this operation if the Sox were to ship (say) Crochet and Burger to the Cubs for Kimbrel and half his $ remaining (including next year).

If the Sox get Kimbrel, does he become the closer? I love Liam but Kimbrel has straight up been better this year.

It's probably an audition for the next two months TBH.

He SHOULD be but I doubt La Russa does that.
