Chris Sale Newsbeat

An angry Chris Sale is an opportunity for Red Sox

Wow, how could Chicago pass on getting Allen Craig?

If the White Sox want Rafael Devers or Andrew Benintendi instead of Travis, so be it. They get one of that trio.

Chicago will want high-end pitching, too. With Michel Kopech injured and quite possibly a knucklehead, Anderson Espinoza has to be included in the package. You aren’t getting Sale without giving up a prime-time mound prospect.

With LaRoche gone, Chicago needs a first baseman/DH type. Send them Allen Craig and pick up $18 million of the $21 million he is owed.

From there, draw up a list of players and let the White Sox pick two. Put Deven Marrero, Henry Owens, Brian Johnson, Roenis Elias, Marco Hernandez, Matt Barnes, and Pat Light on the table.

So the final package would be something like Travis (or Devers or Benintendi), Espinoza, Craig, $18 million, and two others for Sale.

Chris Sale unloads on White Sox VP Kenny Williams after Adam LaRoche flap | For The Win

What a mess.

“I have to speak to the people who don’t have voices. I have to speak for my teammates now, and I have to speak for my teammates in the future. This is something that needs to be taken care of for the well-being of the White Sox, not just us in the clubhouse — not just Adam, not just me. This is something that could have a lasting impression for years to come, and could affect future teams, and I’m not a fan of that. I think if we’re truly trying to win a championship, there’s no room for this kind of stuff.”

Should he stay or should he go now?

An’ if he stays it will be double
So come on and let me know

LOOK: White Sox giving away Chris Sale bobblehead with K-counter

We have a leader in the clubhouse for the best bobblehead giveaway of the 2016 Major League Baseball season. The Chicago White Sox are giving away these Chris Sale bobbleheads on May 7

This is pretty awesome.
