Chicago White Sox

Why stop now? Chris Sale, Adam Eaton, Jose Quintana, Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle have all been traded since the end of last season, and the White Sox now boast the best farm system in all of baseball. They might as well keep selling, until there’s nothing left but the box of baking soda in the fridge.

A pronounced buyer’s market for bats could prompt GM Rick Hahn to slow his trading roll a bit from here, given that his best remaining trade chips are mostly position players. Still, if first baseman Jose Abreu and free-agent-to-be outfielder Melky Cabrera are still wearing pale hose after July 31 (and/or after the Aug. 31 waiver-trade deadline), it won’t be for lack of trying.
