Who will blink first?

Will it be the White Sox or the Indians.  Both are now below the Braves line (.500).  My guess is that Kenny Williams starts dumping veterans first and gets some good prospects back.

We need to dump Duncan, Durbin, Hannahan and Joe Smith.  I know I have said that before but Duncan has raised his value significantly recently, Joe Smith has OK, but lower value than at the trading deadline and Durbin and Hannahan may have limited value but may help if we throw them in with the other two.

I bet the White Sox blink first (i.e., give up on the season) and get some good prospects back for their veterans.  Why shouldn't they?   They didn't give up a big chunk of their future for an ace who is currently flushing himself down the toilet.

BTW, on an unrelated note the Phillies just signed their first expensive Latin FA.  That leaves the following guys left unsigned.

18. Franmil Reyes, OF, Dominican Republic
28. Mauricio Silva, RHP, Venezuela
31. Manuel Gonzalez, RHP, Dominican Republic
32. Gialy Arias, RHP, Dominican Republic
34. Sanber Pimentel, OF/1B, Dominican Republic
37. Yairo Munoz, SS, Dominican Republic 
38. Soid Marquez, RHP, Venezuela

Maybe with the pathetic draft we had after the first two rounds we might think about swooping in and signing these 7 guys or other high talent guys, assuming their ages are not in question.
