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.
