Chicago White Sox
Yankee's just got lot better. Another top 30 prospect coming to the south side. Going to be a tough year and a half. Stock up two high draft picks and roll in 2019.
Stay the course Brewers is my advice. Sell like you planned at the deadline. Not buy. Sox been there done that way too many time's. Took the cub's winning it all to get their head out of their ass and do it the right way.
In a way, I would have liked to see them stay intact one more year, every one healthy, and with a new manager in control just to prove my theory that Ventura was a great player but not so much a manager. But then they would have missed out on the prospects they got.
Well just the beginning of a long and tedious journey back to putting a team on the field with any chance of making the play-offs for a long time. Took my cubs awhile and now they are there. Let's see where the sox brain trusts are and where they are going in the next few seasons to come.
So Chris Sale and his scissors are headed to Boston, eh?
I see that infielder Yoan Moncada, right-hander Michael Kopech, outfielder Luis Basabe and right-hander Victor Diaz join the White Sox in return.
Moncada was ranked the No. 1 prospect in all of baseball in 2016 by Baseball America and MLB.com.
Any ChiSox fans 'round here want to register their thoughts on this deal?
Tough break for the New Trier alum and Wilmette product who grew up a White Sox fan:
Let's hope the injury isn't too bad and that he can resume his baseball career in relatively short order!
Sale's behavior was ridiculous, childish, and add-whatever-other-adjective you like.
What the heck was he thinking?
But yes, he is without question one of the game's top three pitchers (and now with Kershaw out with back problems, make that top-two!), so once he serves the five-game suspension he'll be welcomed back with open arms.
Tough, tough season for the ChiSox, beginning with the Drake LaRoche nonsense (with Sale in the middle of it all, screaming at Kenny Williams to get out of "their" clubhouse!), and resulting in last week's realization by Rick Hahn that the club is mired in mediocrity.
And contrasting the Sox woes with the Cubs successes had to make it all the more miserable for South Side fans! Bummer!
