Addressing both problems with one trade

It is very well known that the White Sox need some extra help in right field and they need one more starter. Both guys that the Red Sox could move play the two positions that the White Sox could really use. If these two were added to the team it would fill those two holes about as best as you can at this point. An MVP caliber player would be added to the right-field spot and a former Cy Young award winner would be coming into the starting rotation.

Mookie Betts is one of the best outfielders in the world. He has won four straight gold gloves for his work. He is also a four-time all-star to go along with his MVP award and World Series title. He has been the recipient of the Wilson Overall Defensive Player of the Year Award as well. There is no doubt that this guy is an incredible right fielder. He would instantly come in and be one of the best the White Sox have ever had out there.

He is also amazing at the plate. He won the MVP on the back of a phenomenal season with his bat. He was the Batting Champion that year as well. Even in his “down years” you would consider him an elite hitter. He would be a perfect addition to the top of the White Sox starting lineup. There are some great hitters already on this team and Mookie is used to being great with great players around him.

David Price has been a very good MLB pitcher. He hasn’t been as good as his contract suggests he should be but he was paid for how good he was opposed to how good he was going to be. He does have that Cy Young award and five All-Star appearances. He also won the ERA title twice in his career. He would certainly come in and be a big help to this rotation.
