    Get rid of Robertson and Duke for sure. Hear they're getting lots of calls on Eaton. That may bring back something interesting.

    Doesn't matter.. They will sell off and get the next Avi.. Rinse and Repeat. Until the owner dies, the fans will live in baseball hell.

    Sale and Anderson are the only untouchables. Trade everyone and throw in Robin and see if anyone notices.

    I'd like to know the specifics but everyone should be on the table. If the Red Sox or Dodgers are offering their top 7 or 8 prospects, you take that deal.

    Although I agree with Chae that there are no untouchables I wouldn't trust the organization as a whole to develop said top prospects received. This whole shit show needs to be torn completely down from Williams to the bowels of rookie ball. Right behind the need for actual prospects is the need for a whole new philosophy organizational wide.

    This exactly. It would be one thing if we had Theo Epstein running the show instead of Theo Huxtable. Here's what we would get for Sale: Avi Garcia's slightly fatter brother, 1-2 white guys from the NL that will immediately post career lows, 2 arms where the ceiling would be Sergio Santos-esque for one while the other immediately has Tommy John after his first start in the system, Adrian Nieto comes back and some fuck named Barry/Berry.

    The MLB scouting of this franchise is horrible.

    I would say the only positive right now in the organization is our new scouting director. The 2016 draft looks great so far. Very early yes but it's better than it looking shitty so far.

    "We're mired in mediocrity," Hahn said. "That's not the goal. That's not acceptable. … The goal was to put ourselves in a situation to win a championship, and (being) stuck at .500 or around .500 doesn't do that. We may well have to adjust and take a longer-term view and take a different approach going forward."

    KW must be seething, or dead, for that to come out publicly. This is why I can't toss Hahn away willy nilly. I feel that if they take his training wheels off, he may just do a good job.

    They'd need an organizational rebuild, from Jerry on down. I like Hahn, I think he has some potential, but there is way too much loyalist behavior in this organization to expect the sweeping changes and patience necessary to return the club to sustained winning baseball.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    I also don't trust that they can actually identify good players, even those who are near MLB ready. Which doesn't mean they shouldn't try to rebuild, it just means they should probably do it with new management, by which I mean definitely not KW.

    "Mired in Mediocrity" should just be the marketing slogan for the next 5 years. Take the pressure off.

    If they win it all, whatever, anyone is better than the goddamn Flubs.

    It all comes down to the shitty front office.

    If they don't trade him, KW and Rick won't make the playoffs because they are incapable of building a playoff team around him.

    If they do trade him, they are incapable of getting the right players and developing them into a playoff team.

    Bunch of total gay gentlemen.

    Most of the writers proposed packages are trash. Sale is a Cy Young level pitcher who is under team friendly cost for 3.5 years. He is worth 3 top 50 prospects and 5 top 100 prospects.

    They're using Cole Hamels to compare to Chris Sale?

    And most fans overvalue their teams' players. Let's hear your proposal then. Please identify the team and package you would move him for. While I don't disagree, he has the talent to be a CY Young winner.. Sale should be the one moving, at this time. His off the field antics is becoming a distraction from baseball.

    The Sox have the chance to replenish their farm and show their fans they understand their 2006- current plan hasn't worked. And they need to go in a new direction. I just don't see Sale being moved overall for several reasons.

    Hamels is a very good pitcher but at the time he was traded, he was 4 years older, his contract is like $12 million more per year and his stats aren't as impressive as a NL pitcher

    Dude he doesn't just have the talent to be a Cy Young winner, he's the fucking front runner this year. The ideal trade for Sale is Moncada, Benintendi, Devers, Kopech, Swihart and a couple lottery ticket arms.

    What specific trades are you talking about that you don't want the White Sox to trade with the Red Sox?

    The Red Sox have the best farm system in the game.

    He's one of the very few elite SP in baseball. If you honestly think this stupid uniform thing has dissuaded any team from pursuing him or diminished his value in any way, you're naive.

    Anthrax gets mad at Chae coveting Red Sox farmhands by using the Tigers players in the Drinky deal with Florida years ago as his example.

    A fan probably can't accurately predict a precise "package." These trades often (usually?) are 3 way affairs (giggity) because a single farm system doesn't have enough talent to pull it off.
