Could the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians make a trade this deadline?
There have been MLB trade rumors swirling across Major League Baseball all weekend. However, a lot of them really started to heat up on Sunday all day. The Chicago White Sox have been involved in a few of them and pretty much all of them have revolved around starting pitching. Well, they have been connected to their division rival that they share first place in, the Cleveland Indians. It feels like that would be really strange to see but it also makes sense when you think about it deeply.
The White Sox could really use a starting pitcher and the Indians could really use a quality outfielder. They are battling each other for the top spot in the American League Central but with the expanded playoffs, it is pretty clear that both of them are going to the playoffs at this point. It is a lot of fun to watch these teams battle on the field but it is truly possible that they try to help each other out.
It isn’t like these two teams haven’t made trades in the past. The White Sox fans probably don’t want to remember this but they had a trade a little over a year ago that sent Yonder Alonso to the White Sox. If a team feels like it is improving its chances to win, they should make the trade regardless of who it is with.
The White Sox getting another big piece to come over to this team would really improve their chances of making the playoffs and perhaps making a run at the World Series. You never know what happens in baseball, especially in a year like this. These are the three players to try and acquire from the Cleveland Indians:
