Drew is always a liability to go down as well. Hopefully Middlebrooks can fix whatever isn't working for him, but I'm certainly not counting on it.

Does anyone know about the 3 specs the White Sox got (Wendelken, Montas & Rondon)?

I remember when I said Grant Green would be a terrible pick during that draft. Ah good times.

Angels doing a great job to help secure a top 10 pick. Need to make sure they get one so when they overpay another FA, they won't have to worry about losing that draft pick!

Montas is probably the most interesting. 100+ on the gun in stints but with very little in the way of command. He's still young though, so there's some time to see if he can develop. Probably a relief prospect long term.

He was talking about Carlos Rodon, who will in all likelyhood be the top pick in next year's MLB draft

Halos have no shot at passing Houston or Miami so obviously they have no chance WAY TO STATE THE OBVIOUS Brody

Trea Turner is going to be a steal for someone in the top 10 next year also. I'm hoping we tank enough to have a shot at him.

Really seems apparent that Bogaerts will be coming up soon to play either third or short. That situation will be interesting. Middlebrooks looked extremely overmatched this season and I've been kind of rooting against him in AAA the past month or so because Bogaerts is so close as well. It would be nice to have both of them going now. Bogaerts is a better long-term fit at 3B, but most of what I've read over the years(especially recently) seems to suggest that he may be able to play shortstop for the first few years of his career.
I am with you here... Listening to some of the outrage from some of the other people is just laughable.

As others have previously mentioned Iggy was nothing more than a great defender. When pressed into full time duty his numbers have started to tail off to where everyone expect him to be.

Would I like to keep him? Your damn right I would but the fact is we have Bogaerts who is actually quieting critics with his defense this season and Middlebrooks who AT WORST hits as good as Iglesias.

Its a solid deal and one that is actually quite a bit in our favor. I was scared shitless coming into yesterday and today that we were going to see Bogaerts or JBJ traded but luckily that doesn't look like its even in the realm of possibilities now.

I'm guessing they refused to trade Bogaerts for Lee/Young. Kind of understandable, but I don't think they take back trading Hanley Ramirez and Anibal Sanchez and taking on that awful (at the time) Mike Lowell contract to get Josh Beckett...so why wouldn't they make a similar move?
This is not even close to the same thing. They traded Hanley and got a 25 year old Ace, an older but solid MIF and a 3B that was forced on the Sox because the Marlins didn't want to pay him.

In no way am I jeopardizing our future for an over the hill 3B (although I do love Young) and a 32 year old pitchers making 25 million with a 12.5 million buyout.

My guess is he'll be in Boston by the end of the day. It isn't Beckett and Mike Lowell but i like the potential acquisitions in the last 24 hours.

Utley is in a negotiation for new contract with Phillies. That is why. Yes, it would be nice if you traded him away for a couple prospects and signed him back after this season but it did not happen.

I think you misread me, I wouldn't have traded Utley for anything and am hoping that extension goes through ASAP. Utley, is my favorite player of all time and I named my first-born Chase (only after the Mrs. shot down Eugene III, haha) so yea, I am glad they didn't move him.

That being said, I would have loved to trade any or all of the other pending free agents (Delmon Young, Michael Young, Laynce Nix, even Carlos Ruiz).
