What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
If Profar is being held for Price deal what about Sale? He's been pretty good the last couple of yrs, inexpensive, mult yrs left. Price, Yu, and Sale next yr would be sick.
Sale is less likely to move then Price is this season, even while the Rays have an excellent shot of making the playoffs. Price will be traded prior to opening the 2014 season. The Rays simply will not be able to afford another arbitration quantum jump in salary, the White Sox are in decent shape with team salary and affordability. Peavy and/or Danks will be moved long before Sale is even a consideration. Rios is a different situation. Rios and Peavy is a better target then Garza, and may cost no more in final consideration of traded players/prospects. If Garza stays a rental, it is a no brainer. Peavy over his career has been more successful then Garza, while Rios can look like a 5 tool superstar for moments and then disappear for big stretches. A best scenario may still be to go with a Baker, even Manny as the right handed bat and hope that Darvish, Ogando are back by the Yankees series, and that N Ramirez replaces Grimm as the 5th starter. .
Yes. I think Price is the offseason move. However Rosenthal says Sale is available. If the rangers could get both in some package discount it might let the sox dump all of Rios salary, which I believe is the only delay in Rios already being moved. I don't think Pevy is going to be healthy enough and I would stay for away from if I was JD.
