Podcast: An early look at Jose Abreu’s trade market

Guest: Eric Longenhagen, Fangraphs
The rundown:
  • Jose Abreu is having a terrific start to 2018 which naturally raises the question during this rebuilding phase if he will be traded by July 31st? We break down how much Abreu still means to the White Sox which two teams could use Abreu the most.
  • Preview the series in Cleveland as the Indians bullpen might finally be a welcome sight for White Sox hitters.
  • (30:06) Our guest is Eric Longenhagen from Fangraphs.com who shares his thoughts of Alec Hansen’s rehab start, his favorite White Sox prospects, and next week’s MLB Draft. Why Casey Mize to Detroit still makes sense and who he thinks the White Sox will take at #4.
  • Plus your questions in P.O. Sox:

Yesterday was the anniversary of the official Luis Robert introduction. How did we all celebrate? Hopefully he celebrates this week by hitting some extended dingers in extended ST.


Bummer….I got tickets to the 17th already, not the 16th

So Longenhagen gives only two players a 60 rating, Mize,and Madrigal. If we take Madrigal at #4, that’s a deal, right?


No brainer if he’s available. 


As long as they use the common sense described by Longenhagen re: Madrigal vs. Moncada at 2B it is the only pick that makes sense, IMO.


Was glad to hear Abbott’s name mentioned. Wondered how he was doing in EST. Is there a place to see rosters of who is in EST?
