A trade would help the White Sox balance their rotation, which projects to include four lefties, as long as veteran John Danks remains healthy.
Pitchers get hurt too much to count on still having around years down the line.
I also agree with #2; in theory the White Sox damn well should trade Sale for whatever they can get, because (a) He's a pitcher, so his arm is a ticking time bomb and (b) By the time they get back to being contenders he'll probably either be very expensive or ruined by injuries.
If you have an ace pitcher of any age and you don't expect to compete within about three years
If the Pirates offered Polanco, Taillon and some lesser (but still high-upside) prospects I'd probably take that.
Rumor over the summer was the Marlins asked for Polanco in exchange for Giancarlo Stanton, and the Pirates balked. If that's true, no way is he getting traded for Sale.

It sounds like Burnett isn't coming back, Liriano might turn into a pumpkin at any moment, and the Pirates find themselves in dire need of a good starting pitcher
I'm sorry, but I find the idea of trading Sale ####### ridiculous. He's exactly the kind of player that the Sox should be trying to acquire, not trade away.
According to Robothal, the Sale talk is a lot more about other teams inquiring than it is the Sox shopping....
