    You would hope that the rotation going forward is Sale, Q, Rodon, Johnson, and Fullmer so I don't think it's necessarily a fit, but....I'm also not Kenny Williams.

    Tulowitzki to Toronto for Jose Reyes, LaTroy Hawkins (yes, he's still around), and a prospect.

    I like the move for the Rockies. Reyes' contract is shitty, but it pales in comparison to Tulo's. Plus Tulo's knees/legs on turf? Bad stuff.

    UPDATE: Rockies get Castro and Hoffman the Jays #3 and #5 prospects.

    They could still be willing to part with some combo of Norris, Pompey, and middle IF/C prospects

    No I hope they trade Q, and get a 3b and C out of the deal. The Rockies or Rangers want pitching and have these parts. Of course, much like Jenks, Carlos Quentin, or now with Alexi they will wait till the player has no value then want the other teams farm for them.

    Per Anthony Fenech, some Tigers writer for Freep:
    White Sox will be buyers at the trade deadline, I'm told.

    All because we played the shitty Red Sux & Jndians before the deadline. Had we played KC, Minn or LAA we would not be having this discussion.

    Or they would've swept Minny too. But nah, let's keep on fearing the team that's 22-28 since June 1 because of a dome that's torn down and because they used to have Torii Hunter.


    Oh wait...

    Nobody is fearing anyone, numbnuts. But clearly you seem to have disremembered that the Twins rather own us. In fact, we have won just 4 of 13 meetings (and 2 of the last 10) this season.

    You flip that script and it is we who are in the WC#2 spot (and possibly not gay)

    It's hilarious how you're fully incapable of putting 2 and 2 together.

    The vast majority of those games came before the aforementioned date I gave. Back when the Twins were, you know, playing well, and when the Sox were, you know, dogshit.

    So the results of these games have no barring on current or future outcomes. They were a result of the Twins playing their best ball in half a decade, and not them necessarily owning the Sox.

    They need to move the trade deadline, especially with the new playoff format. Fence teams need more time to figure out what to do.

    This deadline will probably go down in SOX lore as the Rainbow Flag Trade or some shit.

    Team with no business doing anything other than tearing it down gets mildly hot right before the deadline, proceeds to add pieces which, in classic SOX form, play like some of the biggest spidermen to ever don the uniform and burden the team with gay gentlemenry for years. Play at a .300 clip for the rest of the season. Don't even smell the post-season's jock.

    Yeah should be pushed back to mid August at least and eventually they'll add a 6th playoff team to each league

    Yeah; you could have just left it as WHY NOT US. I got your sarcasm. You didn't need to explain what you meant a post later. As the Rev Jessie Jackson would say; the question is moot.

    I think at the very least Johnson needs to be called up to be the full time DH. I doubt he can be worse than Laroche has been lately and he's been raking in AAA.

    Twitter is saying Cespedes and Upton being mentioned for White Sox

    sycked If you loved me, you'd all kill yourselves today.

    :crankit:

    I was wondering who the Sox could even go after if they decided to be 'buyers' instead of just standing pat/selling. Upton's the one guy that crossed my mind. Cespedes to a lesser extent due to the nature of trading within the division. Either way, both of those guys will probably cost quite a bit even as rentals. Still... WHY NOT US?

    If the Sox make a big trade to add a bat, something shitty like Sale or Abreu to the DL will happen within a week.

    Micah Johnson tweaked an ankle or something. Can't find it on Twitter right now of course, Sellers (I mean Cellers!) is just backing him up
