Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports plants a nugget out there about the White Sox and Jeff Samardzija. He tweets:
Now that's significant, but for all of you that are now shouting "Don't deal Aaron Judge, Rob Refsnyder, Luis Severino and Greg Bird..." at me... let me tell you, I'm with you.Sources: #WhiteSox in “listening mode.” Samardzija most likely to go; only potential free agent of significance. Team also could add.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 20, 2015
Hardball Talk writes of the Chisox: "Rosenthal adds, however, that the Sox are not likely to do a wholesale tear-down which involves crazy things like shopping Chris Sale or Jose Abreu."
That being said, flipping Judge, RR, Sev and Bird would be equally "crazy" and if that conversation with Rosenthal's source is legit, and there is no reason to believe it's not... then this idea of the Yankees going out there and getting Shark at a reasonable trade makes perfect sense. The idea of them trading Shark for Judge is ridiculous... and yes... CRAZY. The deal has gotta be right, for both sides.
Something to think about.
But I ask you... do you as a Yankee fan want Samardzija? Who would you give up to make that deal happen?
Stay tuned... I have a feeling this trade deadline is going to be very interesting for the Yankees.
