Thankfully we have one but yes I don’t believe there is a LH or SH 2B available anymore

Lost $2 million from what he would have had performing adequately for the White Sox in August and September...and ruined Hahn's sales job for that particular trade.

Japan or Korea?

 

Coverting Suzuki sounds like more likely than Vaughn or Burger, lol...Mark Teahen still available?  D'Angelo Jimenez?   I do draw the line at Wil Cordero.

They can peddle Kimbrel to the Padres for either Kim or Profar.

That actually sounds like a fair deal for both sides, in terms of the financial ramifications.

Maybe not so much now with Leury also on board, though.

Worst Sox trade since Tatis. Not even exaggerating. Absolute loser player 👎

So he won't be THAT much worse off, financially, with a rebound. 

Seemed more comfortable for whatever reason in the Eastern Time Zone, or at least NL East...

Kimbrel an early entrant in the race to be HE WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED II.

For some reason, Semien never managed to be so controversial....mostly the time lapse from trade to 2/3 Top Five MVP finishes.

What? It wasn't even the worst trade Hahn made that week.

07/29/21 Cleveland Indians traded 2B Cesar Hernandez to Chicago White Sox for LHP Konnor Pilkington.
07/30/21 Chicago Cubs traded RHP Craig Kimbrel to Chicago White Sox for 2B Nick Madrigal and RHP Codi Heuer.

Kimbrel was questionably and most likely bad at first.
Semien was understandable bad after a few months.

He who shall not be named was deplorable and legit could have been a fireable offense.

Oh well - it’s all long gone now. 😭

Pilkington will end up being a starting pitcher in a rotation. What a god awful, shit trade. The trade deadline was one of Hahn's worst showings.

I hear you. Said it sort of made sense if they planned on moving Kopech to a starting role. Just think Kimbrel was gassed at that point, should be OK this year.

That said, Pilkington wasn't a big loss whereas the Sox could have used Heuer last or this/future years, and flipped Madrigal for something else.

Yea that’s really the only thing that sucks about it. That we could have used those chips,in hindsight, for a much better player but it is what it is. Hopefully the Sox bullpen is nails this coming season and they don’t have to overpay for an arm again

The trade was well-intended:  2b was a need and he was playing well and the price wasn't exorbitant.  
Kimbrel trade was much worse.

Agreed. Trade was fine - tho they should have aimed higher. I’m not worried about Pilkington at all. But holy shit, Cesar was unlikeable in every way.

This.  Hernandez was coming off a gold glove and career power numbers.  No one could have predicted a huge flop going to a better team...
