There are those in the organization who think the Sox have another bullet left with basically the same group. Some others don’t agree, knowing the AL Central champion Detroit Tigers should get better with catcher/designated hitter Victor Martinez coming back from a knee injury.
Is it really a given fact that they will decline both Youk's and Peavy's options?
Wouldn't it be pretty surprising to see either player get that on the open market?
They desperately need Viciedo to take a big step forward to have any shot of contention next year.
The White Sox have two legitimate position prospects that are reasonably close to the majors. Carlos Sanchez, who has already been mentioned, and Trayce Thompson. Thompson has plus power and speed, and a reasonable (though not especially good) walk rate. If he cuts down on the K's (big if, I know), he could be something. They also have their 2012 draft pick, Courtney Hawkins, who looks like he has a chance to be pretty good as well.
the whole rebuild route doesn't seem tenable.
Why? They don't have MLB-ready prospects to play. They don't have anyone that'll bring a ton in a trade. You can't redirect spending from MLB payroll to amateur bonuses anymore. All the Sox can do to rebuild, is draft, sign, and develop well.
While they're trying to do that, why not try to cobble together an 85-win roster, and see if you get lucky?
but if the market decides they have to settle for a single year, I'd be in on that.
Why? What would be the point for the Cubs?
It's just not much of a system of those guys are your jewels. Everybody has _some_ prospects who have some chance of being something. The White Sox seem to be weaker in that regard than most.
