    White Sox/Rox talking Story

    Would the Sox take on Blackmon to reduce the prospect cost? Ope...never mind. I see heโ€™s signed through 2022 for A LOT.

    Trade Deadline Thread

    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.

    Deadline Prediction Thread

    If the Frazier trade is any indication, the price tag for a rental 2B shouldn't be bad at all. However, who knows what the FO would consider too steep.

    And Leury is making it really easy for the front office to add a 2B. There are enough options out there that would be an improvement over what he is providing right now.

    AND THAT'S A WHITE SOX WINNER!!!

    Eloy did not care for being disrespected.

    Cease has actually pitched pretty well. If a halfway decent offense was backing him up, he might be in the running for a win. Instead, the 3 runs (2 earned) look like 10.

    This team, overall, looks disinterested.

    Surprised they did not review that. Looked safe.

    Eloy is a better fielder than Goodwin.

    Trade Deadline Thread

    When it comes to adding a 2B, looking at all factors, here's where I stand: 1) Turner (wishful but highly unlikely) 2) Escobar 3) Schoop 4) Baez (there would be so much attitude in the middle infield) 5) Story (just think he'll cost too much for a couple month rental)

    Trea Turner

    They have to be completely off limits. Both of these guys are players you build your team around. Vaughn is already showing what kind of hitter he is going to be, which is one of the best in the league. And Kopech has a $300 million arm.

    Have the Sox been in on any starters? Or even starters they could use as extended bullpen help? I know this is just an informational post, but it got me wondering.

    Trea Turner

    Either Burger. Crochet, and a couple prospects or Madrigal. Crochet, and a couple prospects. I'm not sure what Washington's needs are, but someone mentioned they'd probably want a replacement for Turner, and Madrigal would fit that. Unfortunately, I'm not sure either package gets it done.

    Trea Turner

    TA Turner Abreu Eloy Moncada Vaughn Robert Grandal Engel/Goodwin Dear god... I honestly can't figure out where everyone would hit. Regardless, you'd have very good hitters at 7 and 8.
  16. He would be a perfect fit. Controlled through next year, the price tag is going to be very high. Despite NSC's hypothetical of Burger, Crochet, ++, I would think any package starts with Vaughn or Kopech...and those guys have to be untouchable.

    Trea Turner

    Our old friend NSC posed a "hypothetical" question asking Sox fans if they would be okay with Burger, Crochet, ++ for Trea Turner. The overwhelming majority of responders said yes. I would agree.

    Trade Deadline Thread

    I think a 2B is a sure bet. My guess would be either Escobar or Schoop. A reliever or two should be a sure bet, and I do think they acquire one. I couldn't hazard to guess who it might be though. I don't expect a big name (Kimbrel, Chafin, Rodriguez), although they could really use a solid 8th inning guy.

    I want to see Eloy put one in the water.

    WHITE SOX WINNER!

    Much needed win. Lynn looked great again, and his single that drove in the winning runs was key. Kopech looked okay. He did a nice job battling through his first inning, but there was no reason to have him bat and start the 8th. Hendriks was the guy we needed at the time we needed him. The guy we saw last night is the crazy SOB we're going to need in the playoffs. Good to see the Sox win a game against a really good team on national TV. It was the pitching duel that was advertised, but part of that was due to the Sox hitters continuing to look like poop. It's a strange night when Zavala and Lynn drive in your only runs. Speaking of Zavala, from what I've seen, he does a better job behind the plate than Collins. And he received praise again from Lynn. Any chance he sticks around and Collins goes down when Grandal comes back?

    Sox @ Brew Crew, 7/25, 6:08, Game Thread

    Yeah, he was described as one of the best pure hitters available.
