Put him in our lineup behind Pedro and wow, Cutch, Pedro and Gian as 3-4-5. This to go along with our strong pitching. Polanco and whoever would be well worth the price.
Go Bucs!!!

So sure if you have no interest in the Pirates ever winning a world series, lets trade away Kingham, Hanson and Bell.

Neither have been in the World Series.

Ramirez’ numbers have been down since his rookie year. He’s declined every single year since he came into the league.

Rios is just wildly inconsistent and not someone you want to rely on to put your team’s offense over the top.

They would both be salary dumps for the Sox and no t players that you would sacrifice ANY top prospects for.

But if the White Sox haven’t been blown away by any deals yet then why are you just willing to throw in Lambo, Pimentel, and Chris Johnson. To make a deal like this it’ll probably take a Kingham, Bell, or Hanson, or maybe some combination of them if the market for Rios heats up. But you seriously overrate Ramirez if you think his addition in a trade is worth Kingham. Kingham is soon to be the top 1 or 2 pitching prospect on this farm

I imagine their numbers are down because of the lack of success they’ve had recently plus Bell and Hansen aren’t exactly tearing up the low minors, I think people over value them

He’s signed through 2015 making 9 million next year, then ten million the year after.

Teams know that we are trying to fill weaknesses to build a WS contender, and you really can’t blame them for checking out our best prospects.
