Why can't we trade for Chris Sale?

Considering he is only 24 with a very high upside still, I think he would cost us Gausman or Bundy along with Schoop at the least. DD will not give Gaus or Bundy up and they are our only 2 really attractive pieces for other teams.

We could definitely trade for him--if we're willing to give up Machado. Do you want to do that? What do we possibly have in terms of prospects that the white sox would want and couldn't be matched by another team. Two of our top prospects are injured.

Even if the O's were to trade these guys, if you were the Sox, would you want to give up your biggest chip for a guy with an injured back and a pitcher with arm issues?

They would trade him to us for Machado and Gausman. And that would save the Orioles the huge salaries that they will command in the future all the while having only to pay one salary going forward. It's a win/win! Savings + Sale= Profit!

Yeah exactly, this trade will absolutely never happen.

I would easily give up Gausman/Bundy+Schoop for Sale. Without a doubt.

I just hate knowing that this guy might be available, but our team as currently owned/operated would never go all in for him.

It has nothing to do with how our team is owned/operated. It has everything to go with the fact that he would cost us almost everything valuable in our farm system. And that is if he were available, which from everything I have heard, he isn't. But feel free to continue blaming everything on our owner and front office, even situations that are non-starters in the first place.

    • Baseball Reference adjusts for quality of offenses faced, park factor, and team defense. Orioles team dWAR is 1.0; White Sox is -4.7. First guess is Fedde is getting a lot of credit for achieving the same run prevention in front of inferior fielders. Burnes has faced KCx2, Was, Mil, Tam, Sea, Torx2, Bosx2, Oak, Chw, NYY, LA. Fedde has faced KCx2, Was, Mil, Tam, Sea, Tor, Bal, Min, CLEx2, Ari, STL, and Det. Doesn't seem like a huge difference there. So it's probably the fielding adjustment. Is the White Sox stadium especially hitter-friendly?
    • Rizzo just got hurt. Bad throw by 1B caused a collision at 1B. Rizzo while safe bumped into P and fell on ground.    He was grabbing his wrist/hand. Left game.    Red Sox are also in process of blowing the lead. 
    • I’ll agree and disagree. It’s not so important with this number of games left to juggle pitchers around since you are still playing the long game.     Bye teams going 3-5 in the DS have shown it’s not an impossible hill to climb. That said I think both teams still value winning the division. 
    • I totally agree. Some are still stuck in the mindset that we're a bad team. 
    • That's good.  Will give him something to do while he heals.
    • Huh? He's on pace to start under 100 games at Catcher.
    • Keith Law has him going late 1st round and doesn’t sound like a fan.   26. New York Yankees: Christian Moore, 2B, Tennessee Moore has probably performed his way into the first round, even though the underlying tools and instincts don’t support it. He’s hit 23 homers and has a .380/.446/.774 line (through Monday) as part of the Vols’ loaded lineup, where five hitters already have 15 or more homers. I could also see them on Ryan Waldschmidt or Jordan. Baseball America’s most recent mock had him going 19.  Some reservations about his defense. 19. Mets — Christian Moore, 2B, Tennessee Moore’s offensive consistency in his three years with Tennessee is impressive. He’s posted a 1.000 OPS or better in each season, has hit over .300 in each season and has managed double-digit homers in each season—with a career-best 28 homers in 2024. He did that while cutting his strikeout rate from 24-25% to 14.5%. There are real questions with how much he’ll be able to pick it at second base. Still, he has one of the more proven bats in the class and is getting tons of top-20 buzz.
