It has been a painstakingly slow offseason in the MLB, particularly for the Chicago White Sox and their fans. Here are three trades to finish the offseason.
We are now three months into the Major League Baseball offseason.
For Chicago White Sox fans, it has felt like three years.
Between the never-ending pursuit of free agent superstar Manny Machado, constant trade rumors, and a generally sluggish rumor mill, it has been a brutal offseason.
However, the trade rumors are just now picking up.
Last week, I broke the news that the White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers were discussing a trade involving Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson. We’ll get to Pederson in a bit, but after months of really nothing, the White Sox might just be on the verge of a move.
Regardless of what it may seem like, the White Sox have had an active offseason. Their moves haven’t been the Machado-level moves that we are all waiting for, but it has been a progressive and productive offseason on the South Side.
These moves won’t get you jumping out of your seat, but they’re the type of moves that are necessary in order to pull the White Sox out of their 100 loss state.
Despite the added pieces, you don’t have to be a genius to know that the White Sox are still a very lacking team in several areas. Adding a couple of veterans doesn’t put a 100-loss team in the playoffs. Impact moves, whether they be trades or signings, do. I think the White Sox have a couple in store.
Everybody wants the aforementioned impact moves. I’ve got those for you. Here are three impact trades that the White Sox can make to send everybody to Spring Training with a good taste in their mouths.
