Per @ChiTribRogers (https://twitter.com/ChiTribRogers) on @mullyhanley (https://twitter.com/mullyhanley), Jesse Crain to the #Braves (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Braves&src=hash) is "a done deal" if he can get healthy: http://cbsloc.al/1bcfSaT (http://t.co/AKCZJeusMc) #WhiteSox (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23WhiteSox&src=hash)

I sure hope Crain can get healthy this week..

Why would anyone believe what Phil Rogers has to say?

A couple of lovely trade proposals from good old Phil.

"Jake Peavy and Lindstrom or Crain to the Diamondbacks for outfielders Jason Kubel and Adam Eaton: If the White Sox are changing their whole team, why not?"

"Addison Reed, Jesse Crain, Matt Lindstrom, Adam Dunn and cash to the Tigers for Victor Martinez, Nick Castellanos and Bruce Rondon: General manager Rick Hahn is willing to trade within his division, and this is the one blockbuster that could fix the Tigers' fatal flaw. The White Sox add a potential fixture (Castellanos) and an unproven power arm (Rondon) while changing their look with Martinez in Dunn's slot next year."

I'd take the one with the Tigers.

If Phil says that the trade with Braves is a done deal, then he should know who we get. Spill it, Phil.

Get rid of Dunn and get Castellanos? Where do I sign?

Why in the world would the Tigers want to do that?!?!

I don't know, they get three quality relievers, one of which is a young cost controlled closer, turning their one weakness into a massive strength. Dunn and Martinez is a wash except I think Dunn has another year and Martinez doesn't? But money doesn't matter to the Tigers right now.

Seems actually like a win-win trade. Which is surprising, considering the source. Probably moot though. It's not based on anything, and I don't think we're in a hurry to help the Tigers win a World Series.

Because Phil Rogers is a baseball genious, obviously.
