No. 1: Dallas Keuchel (Three years, $45 million)
No. 2: CC Sabathia (One year, $10 million)
No. 1: Trade Carlos Rodon, Nate Jones, and Jose Abreu to Colorado for Ian Desmond, Colton Welker, Ryan Rolison, Tyler Nevin, and Ryan Vilade. The White Sox need to add more depth to their minor league system and the Colorado needs to rid themselves of that awful Ian Desmond contract.
No. 2: Trade Avisail Garcia, Jordan Guerrero, and Carson Fulmer to Toronto for Troy Tulowitzki, Rowdy Tellez, Orelvis Martinez. This trade moves players that have no spot in the rebuild for a terrible contract, a change of scenery prospect and a higher upside lottery ticket prospect.
No. 3: Trade Matt Davidson and Juan Minaya to The Yankees for Jacoby Ellsbury, Roansy Contreras and Antonio Cabello. Same thoughts as the two trades above a bad contract is acquired for some prospects.
No. 4: Trade Omar Narvarez, Ryan Cordell and Aaron Bummer to Texas for Shin So Choo and Jonathan Ornelas. This trade clears out some more 4o man roster space, takes on a bad contract and acquires an interesting infield prospect.
No. 5: Trade Leury Garcia to Philadelphia for cash or PTBNL. Preferably 2019 INTL bonus pool money.
No. 1: Adam Engel
No. 2: Nicky Delmonico

These moves make the White Sox more interesting in the short term while allowing them to take their time with the prospects already in the system. I’m sure I blew past the $105 Million threshold but taking on bad contracts to get some decent prospects would be worth it.
Good lord. This team would be lucky to win 50 games.
And cost a lot of money, me thinks
My head hurts. Anyone have any advil?
WTF did I just read?
Whatever happened to BonScottsBigBalls anyway?
Just picked up by the FBI in Florida. His white van had stickers “Make the Sox great Again”
LMAO!! This is classic. Well done lj.
pretty sure we could just call up the charlotte knights and win the same amount of games for less money….
This ain’t it, Chief.
