The White Sox are doing it right. Plus still have more to sell.


Agree, glad Mo didn't pay that price. White Sox are raking in the prospects the past couple of days, quite impressive.

The other 2 pitchers in this deal are pretty dang good too. This would be close to Reyes, Weaver, and Flaherty from the Cards. PASS!

White Sox are pulling off a Cubs style rebuild in 1 offseason. This is crazy.

Eaton is 28 and has 5 years, $38 million remaining on his contract. Was a 5 WAR player last year.

Pham-Grichuk-Piscotty is not an outfield that's going to win much of anything.

Holliday’s one-year, $13M contract with the Yankees reportedly includes a one-team no-trade clause that prevents the Yankees from trading Holliday to the Oakland A’s, where he played during the 2009 season.

Aroldis Chapman agreed to a five-year, $86 million contract with the Yankees on Wednesday night, a source told MLB.com. It's the largest contract ever handed to a relief pitcher.

And reports are that the Marlins had actually offered him a little more.

Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reported the Cubs were close to signing 41-year-old right-hander Koji Uehara.. Nikkan Sports in Japan reported the deal was for one year and $4.5 million.

The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a deal with free-agent reliever Koji Uehara. The 41-year-old Uehara posted a 3.45 ERA over 47 innings with the Boston Red Sox last year. He’ll likely slot into a setup role behind the newly-acquired Wade Davis.

Napoli is the surprising one to me. He's been in the playoffs 8 of the last 10 seasons with four different organizations, including 3 of the last 6 World Series' with three different organizations.
