The Chicago White Sox are one of the favorites to win the American League going into 2021. As a result, there is a chance that they could win the World Series if a lot of things go their way. They have a lot of talent all around so adding, even more, could really increase their chances. Adding a guy like Charlie Blackmon to play in the outfield and be in the middle of their lineup would be so awesome.
With players like Jose Abreu, Luis Robert, Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada, and Eloy Jimenez amongst others protecting him in the lineup, he could be even more dangerous than we thought. This is the type of player that, given the market and team you are dealing with, you go for. Giving up Gavin Sheets (Number 9 White Sox prospect), Jimmy Lambert (Number 14 White Sox prospect), and Seby Zavala (Number 22 White Sox prospect) makes total sense for the White Sox in this situation.
It isn’t always easy to give up on some of these guys but in order to get a player like Blackmon you need to give up some talent, even if it is a deal with the Rockies. They are in a tough spot as an organization so they might take what they can get. All three of these guys and the guys mentioned previously could help the Rockies complete a rebuild similar to the way the Sox pulled it off.
A trade like this would give them a potential catcher, right-handed pitcher, and first baseman. The White Sox don’t necessarilly have glaring needs for any of those positions but the Rockies could probably have a bit of everything. If any of these trades could land a guy like Charlie Blackmon, the White Sox should consider.
