    What a trade

    Post by Guest on Fri Jan 05, 2018 9:56 am

    This can’t be right

    The White Sox get two quality relievers in a 3way with the Dodgers and Royals and all they lose is Jake “Freakin” Peters!?!!?!

    I think the Sox are also getting some cash in the deal

    Hahn should be arrested for highway robbery

    Sox are getting Avilan from LA and Soria from KC and Dodgers are getting a good reliever from the Royals, but yeah it looks like the Sox give-up is the least and KC's gain is the least. 

    Doubt Avilan or Soria will be big parts of the Sox future, but they help take some of the IP pressure off the young prospect pitchers this year.  So this appears to be a good deal for the Sox.

    So this appears to be a good deal for the Sox. 



    ***********


    Understated of the YEAR!!!!!!


    2 MLB proven quality relievers plus $3mil in cash


    All for some kid that barley cracks the top 30 prospect list?!?!?!?!?


    But go ahead and keep thinking anybody that doesn't project to 2020 doesn't matter


    PS, Jake Peters wasn't in the future plans either

    It matters that the Sox have a couple of relievers to take on some IP at relatively cheap prices and that one or both of them could potentially be used as midseason trade bait. 
    Peters' results in 2017 were a bit surprising.  H[size=13]i
    t only 4 HR's in 322 PA's in AA but 9 HR's in 193 PA's in AAA.   Might be the difference between Charlotte and Birmingham ballparks, but I wouldn't completely scoff at Dodger scouting.   They have discovered some ordinary looking guys (Justin Turner, Chris Taylor, Kiki Hernandez) who've turned into good ballplayers. Not saying Peters will be another but there might be a reason they wanted a below-the-radar guy like him.
