Default Time for a White Flag Trade?

I wasn't happy about the last one, but KW would be more than justified if he engineered one now

Remember???

Still too early for this type of talk. KW should still be in buy mode at this time.

I'm not happy with the team, but this isn't the time to surrender.

Unless someone floors KW with an offer, I don't see the point in a White Flag-esque trade; if we get rid of some of the veterans around here, who plays in their place? We don't have any real prospects ready for everyday life in the MLB, we may as well just ride it out with these guys, at least. It's not like anyone is running away with the division.

This 5 game series with the Tigers is very crucial. Could determine our season.

Yeah, KW would have to be getting MLB-ready prospects in return if he were going to make a White Flag-like trade. But who the hell is going to give up MLB-ready prospects for a half-season of Jermaine Dye or Jim Thome?

I'd still like to see them hold on to Dye and make him the DH next year.

Agreed, if they go young, they need to do it full on. Konerko, Thome, and JD all should be moved.

It was a great trade.





Caruso hit a home run.

I agree with Nellie....No. The team really misses Quentin.

Only Foulke and Howry worked out for the Sox. I hope the Sox would get more serviceable players this time around, if they're going to "White Flag" it.

Way to early for any serious (fans) discussion of this. 4.5 out in mid June. That said, KW is probably ALWAYS talking to GMs about nearly every player.

Now if someone comes in and offers us the greatest haul in the history of hauls, that's a different story...

Smartest Post in this thread. If you win 4 or 5, you are right back in it. If you loe 4 or 5, the season is done. Losing 4 puts us 7.5 out, losing 5 9.5, winning 4 0.5 out and winning 5 in First (or ahead of detroit).

This may be an incident of me 'misremembering'...

But when this trade went down, weren't Barcelo and Caruso supposed to be the main, highly-regarded prospects we were getting in the deal?

Yes, especially Caruso.
