Andy

  • Is it possible for the White Sox to trade Alexei to the Padres for Headley? What needs to make that happen [sic]?
  • The White Sox should trade Tank and prospects for a solid hitting LH left fielder.
  • Floyd for prospects, sign BMac to a one year deal and pray the Tigers get injured. That’s my off-season plan.

Moe

  • That’s one I hadn’t heard of. I think the Pads are going to want some tier one prospects for Headley and may ask for Sanchez+. Trading Tank is a possibility. I think you can move him for some RP help.
  • BMac is a good deal too, but he might be homer prone at the Cell.

Andy

  • He needs to go, no place for all those L’s [sic} when Dunn has his.
  • I’m really out of ideas for the Sox. Wish they would have tanked all last year. Then they would be rebuilding. 😦

Moe

  • He doesn’t walk yet. His approach is flawed at the fundamental level.
  • Haha I fell [sic] you.
  • Feel

Andy

  • Not L’s. K’s

Moe

  • Yeah I figured. They are still talking to Youk. I think they should pursue Salty, maybe that’s the Tank trade.

Andy

  • I’m not feeling Youk for a full season. Oh shit I forgot the k machine Tyler Flowers.\
  • Yeah Tank needs to go, I guess Salty could help that.

Moe

  • They need a catcher if they want to be serious.
  • Another arm would help too. Floyd is a popular name. Would you go for a Floyd+Tank for Salty and a pen arm?
  • And ‘specs headed the WSox way?

Andy

  • In all honesty they need to sign AJ back. Not because he’s going to play anything like he did last year. But just the way he handles the staff. They should fall back a bit without him. However, a solid catcher could stop that. Flowers can’t be the guy. 
  • Yes I’d take that trade.
  • Still need another decent left-handed bat.

Moe

  • And a swing starter. They need to cover for Peavy/Danks

Andy

  • Yeah I’m not sure about Danks at all. I feel better with Peavy and last year. But he’s always a liability.

Moe

  • Yeah he had a great year but you never know with that guy. Let’s assume BMac for a moment. Danks-Peavy-Floyd-BMac, who’s the 5? -Ed note. DERP

Andy

  • Still think they need to get lucky and have Detroit lose three guys. Also Cy Chen needs to get the hell out of the Central lol.
  • Quintana
  • If Quintana fails I guess you go through the gambit of guys they found success with during the season.

Moe

  • You gotta stretch out Quintana. SP’s need to give you 900IP at least IMO.
  • Err
  • Santiago

Andy

  • Yeah Santiago is probably the sixth guy. So keep him in the minors. What can Floyd net from a trade? Prospect wise?

Moe

  • Floyd is dodgy but he makes 29 starts a year. That has value. You can get some mid level guys or a solid MLB ready RP with him IMO. The problem becomes filling up his 175 IP.
  • You need to flip Tank for an SP if you can at that point.

Andy

  • Yeah I thought maybe two mid level guys. 
  • You forgot SaleEd. Note – DERPYDERPDERP

  • Yeah if you can’t get BMac you have to flip for a real starter.

Moe

  • Duh.
  • So Sale-Peavy-Danks-BMac-Quintana and Santiago as the swing.
  • You can flip Floyd for a C and some pen arms.
  • And Tank for the same (pen arms). Still should probably get another swing guy to be sure though.

Andy

  • Still not enough to make a dent on Detroit
  • Back to the drawing board 😦

Moe

  • Nope and the 2nd WC is a bitch.
  • lol
  • Just go YOLO and sign Boozey and Depressed.

Andy

  • Haha!!

Ed. Note – Yeah, this happened at midnight so there is a lot of weird/stupid mixed in. Bottom line, the White Sox are going to have to get real creative or hope for a plane crash if they want to compete in the Central in our opinion.

 

Think you can fix the White Sox? Let us know how.
