    Dude has a fucking cannon for an arm. If he can hit some too (and it looks like he can) then this is a nice little trade. Hopefully the Sox don't have to cover much of the remainder on Peavy's contract.

    This is going to be a long, painful rebuild. Even if you dump all the salaries, its not like you can just overpay a couple free agents and be on your way. Team blows at pretty much each position.

    Boston is eating most of the money, so I hope this allows the Sox to send money elsewhere in deals for Rios, and Ramirez to get a better haul.

    Batting 382/414/549 (963) with a wRC+ of 168 in Toledo. Not loving the 4.6% walk rate, however.

    No cash involved in the deal. So that's nice for Jerry and his partners.

    Garcia has been tearing up the minors the past couple years. But he fits right into the mold of high strikeout, low walk Sox hitters. So he will need to hit for average to be effective at the plate because he won't walk much and he hasn't shown as much power and you would think you would get from a player of his size/build. He's shown a bit more in the minors this year but his power production so far at the MLB level has been non existent.

    Garcia has a decent ceiling but I'm hoping at least one of the Red Sox prospect is considered decent, seems a little underwhelming in comparison to what the Cubs got for Garza.

    Really happy that we got a quality prospect hitter instead of a pitcher for Jake. We need hitters on this team. Without us paying anything cash wise and as WSCR is reporting possibly getting a fifth guy out of this, I think the haul was decent. I wish Jake nothing but the best.

    Fuller Trump had no ideas, he just went too far

    The White Sox acquired outfielder Avisail Garcia, regarded as the top power prospect in the Detroit system, plus three prospects from the Red Sox: 100-mph throwing right-hander from Class A Greenville, 20-year-old Dominican Francelis Montas, righty J.B. Wendelken and infielder Cleuluis Rondon.

    Also: Sure Jake Peavy is a former Cy Young Award winner, but his Wins Above Replacement since 2012 indicate he's now the Red Sox's best starter

    Jake Peavy 6.3
    Clay Buchholz 5.0
    Jon Lester 2.6
    John Lackey 2.4
    Felix Dubront 2.3

    Rios not likely to move.. Which means to me.. this Garcia kid stays down in Charlotte till SEPT and next year.. Tank moves to 1b.

    I bet Rios still gets traded. It won't be an exciting prospect, but it'll clear payroll.

    Really it should be seen as Rienzo replacing Peavy and Danks replacing Tekotte. And I'm still struggling to say where the hell Tekotte came from....

    All 3 of the low-level prospects have goofy names, so the least they could do to make up for it is to throw 100+ mph. :D

    Most of those types seem to lose their 100 mph ability by the time the get here. Hopefully he doesn't.

    Rios and Ramirez remain. I would've been happy with a Soriano-esque dump of Rios. Just seeing him on the team pisses me off.

    It makes just as much sense to trade Rios in August or even during the offseason. Not really a big deal in my mind.
