He still won't likely pitch until mid-August at the earliest. They could still use Peavy.

That's like two or three starts with days off. I think they'll survive.

So while moves have been expected around the White Sox, I don't expect them to make deals just to make them. They have targets in mind

They're holding out for that Sale-Trout swap

I'm on board with this approach. If the right deal isn't there for Rios and Peavy at the trade deadline, they can wait until it is there in the offseason. Crain is someone we might have to move in August at worst, but should still be able to get something for him.

Crain and Dunn are players I could see being moved for the sake of moving. There will probably be interest in Crain.

I don't want to give Peavy away just for the sake of salary dump.

Part of me still sees this team competing next year with the rotation as is and adding a couple of good bats.

Key to me is getting rid of Rios.

Rios is this teams best player. Teams usually can't compete the year after unloading their best player. Even with a couple of bats the team isn't going to compete for a World Series next year, they are better off getting pieces now for a run in a couple of years.

I read that really quickly and thought I saw Steve Trout's name.

If the Sox are trying to compete for a title next year I think management is failing.

Over the course of a sesaon, a starter faces more hitters than a hitter faces pitchers. He's responsible for more outs. If you want to put fans in the seats, take Trout; if you want to win, take Sale * and whomever else would be in the deal.



* I'm not arguing I'd take Sale even up, but the comments like "Trout is worthy two Sales" are absolutely ridiculous. If Trout has the most trade value in baseball, Sale isn't far behind.

Trade them all... To anyone. For anyone. This team sucks.

Probably not the most sound of strategies.

We'll compete but probably not very well. It will be more seeing what we have in the farm now and who we add here.
