With the acquistions of Samjardzia, LaRoche and Robertson the ChiSox are going for it next year.It would make absolutely no sense for them to trade their best pitcher. Plain and simple Chris Sale is n more »
Forum Post: Who would you trade for.....
Posted 12/05/2014 08:46:32 EST
I agree that Cespedes for Porcello is the most realistic deal. In addition to that deal I would reluctently offer Mookie & Swihart as the centerpiece of a Samardzjia - Coco Crisp deal with the A's. more »
