So when do we move De Aza or Viciedo?

Eaton (25) Garcia (22) solid CF/RF young combo....

DeAza and Viciedo will either platoon or be EASILY moved.....lot of clubs like both players..

I've never cared one way or the other that much for Santiago. He's shown flashes, but never looked like more than the 5th guy or a bullpen guy. I feel like we have 3-4 more of those in the system with guys like Rienzo, et al. Plus, they'll likely draft an SP with the #3 pick. Losing Santiago won't hurt.

Adam Eaton looks like he'll be our starting CF for 5 years or so. Unless he totally busts, this is a wonderful trade in my opinion.

Exactly right -- the Sox are building a young, talented corps of every day players. I like it.

Santiagos screw ball was just never what it was expected to be here. I hate giving up pitching but the Sox have no other commodity to give up. The current Sox rotation is Sale, Quintana, a prayer and two hopes now.

Exactly how I feel. I will miss having him on the Sox and wish him the best.
Don't know Eaton at all so I'm hoping this was for the best.

That was pretty much the case with Santiago. Now it's just a different hope.

Chris Sale
Jose Quintana
John Danks
Erik Johnson
Andre Rienzo

Danks is two years removed from surgery. I'm optimistic about him. I like this quintet and Felipe Paulino, if healthy, has some upside as a long man/6th starter.

A little more experience on that hope.

Current depth chart:

Looking a lot more interesting than last season. I wonder if Rienzo will now get a shot at the rotation.

Once Dunn is gone it will look even better.

I like this trade for us, we get younger and more athletic in the outfield (depending on what happens with De Aza), Eaton can bring that on-base element that Severson wants and he's a high-motor guy that we need.
I enjoyed rooting for Santiago, but we had too many lefties in the rotation and he's probably better suited for that spacious stadium in LA.

Danks coming back from that shoulder surgery is a prayer actually a novena type prayer. Counting on both Johnson and Rienzo is a real long shot gamble. Paulino is over a year removed from mlb pitching. I have no solutions to the above problems but sure doesnt look good in my eyes.
