White Sox Acquire James Shields

Recommended Posts

Jon Jay has 9 hits in the last two games...

 

Trade value skyrocketing!

 

Of course, the Mariners got 9 two-out hits in one inning in last night's 12-2 blown lead...the White Sox haven't done that in a month.

Rosenthal says talks are heating up. SD has been scouting the Sox farm system. Supposedly the Sox have made a "compelling" offer

I am probably one of the few people that would not mind Shields. As long as we don't pay too much of his contract.

 

The guy will pitch better than he has with SD.

Would rather see the Sox make a big deal for an impact bat. In the big picture, the Sox are still a very mediocre hitting team.

I feel the same way if the trade is on our terms. The words "compelling offer" scares me quite a bit.

I would be going for Rich Hill over Shields. Cheaper, wouldn't have to give up as much and better right now.

Um. I think Hill is going to require way more than Shields.

To correct you, he says a team has made a compelling offer. Doesn't know who the team is but could or could not be the Sox.

Ya, I'm all for making a trade to improve this team but no on James Shields. The offer being "compelling" scares me off by itself.

Believe the White Sox are still the likeliest destination for James Shields at this point.

The Padres have incentive to finalize a deal before Shields' scheduled start tomorrow. Never know what can happen.

I'll say this - they sure as s*** better get a pen arm and a LH power bat if they're trading for this guy. Urg. I really don't like Shields.

The Sox need another SP, a BP arm & most importantly a LH bat.

 

If you can get a guy like Shields for half of his contract while giving up very little then why not do it?

 

Not the most ideal situation but one move at a time & if a SP is the first add, then why not?

 

Miguel Gonzalez or Mat Latos are fine 5th starters but can't be 4 & 5 in the rotation much longer.

Gonzalez has been pitching better and better as of late. Latos has been getting worse with every start so I can see them adding Shields for the right price.

Oooh, James Shields. He was good 3 years ago. He's a difference maker!

 

I am sure this front office with their talent evaluators weren't dissuaded in the least with Shields' ongoing decline and horrific last out (when facing and AL team).

Williams was dominated by other front offices when he made trades, and Hahn is just as inept, if not worse.

Mods, can I have the power to delete Green Sox's posts on here? And maybe change my title from Benchwarmer to Garbage Man. Thanks boys

Who would you want/expect to give up?

I'd be cool with Shields if the Sox can get him at $13-14M AAV, and don't give up anything meaningful. Shields would be a big upgrade. I do think a DH or OF bat should be a higher priority though. If it's one or the other is prefer the bat.

I have no problem giving up Johnson. Pretty clear that he's a gas can right now.
