Sale is on the Red Sox now. Quite a haul Chicago got back in return.

I'm happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time.

Same here. That took less than I thought it would.

Yankees signed Holliday for 1 year/13 mil to be their primary DH the other day. Yay.

And the thinking was they still wanted Benintendi until a few days ago.

So given what it ended up being, I think it's a good trade.

Oh it's definitely a good trade for the Red Sox. That's not in question. You got Chris Sale.

Can't wait to see how Moncada and Kopech turn out. I have very high hopes for both. Like, perennial All-Star high hopes. And Basabe has a lot of potential, too. Diaz throws 100. The latter seems to be more of a lottery ticket than anything.

Good trade for both teams. Better for the Red Sox in the short term because they're trying to win right now.

Looks like Adam Eaton is our new centerfielder. 5 years of control. Not exactly a huge bat, but his career average is very good, about .290 over the past three seasons. He'll probably bat second behind Turner and ahead of Murphy and Harper. That's pretty nasty.

Yeah it's an awful trade for us. We didn't have to do a damn thing to stay a top 3-4 team in the NL and threw out three major prospects for a solid contributor. They could all be busts, of course.

This Colome deal better be the steal of the century.

Giolito is quite overrated, though.

Agreed. Has the potential to be a great trade for the White Sox.

Nothing substantial. He was mediocre last season, but he's also 22.
