Charlie Blackmon would love to move to a contender like the Chicago White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox and Charlie Blackmon feel like a duo that needs to exist. He would be perfect for this team right now. He isn’t the elite hitter that he once was right now but going to a contending organization might rejuvenate him a little bit. The Colorado Rockies are as bad as any organization in baseball right now with no chance at the playoffs.
This is a team that traded Nolan Arenado to the St. Louis Cardinals for a very underwhelming return. The White Sox, you would think, wouldn’t have to give up that much to get Charlie Blackmon at this point. It would certainly be a low-risk/high reward type of trade for them. Blackmon could return to being a great hitter if he came to a team that he knew had a chance to win the World Series.
Nobody is expecting him to go back to being that Silver Slugger-batting champion type of hitter anymore but someone who could provide steady offense from the outfield would be great. As mentioned before, they wouldn’t have to sell the farm either which would be a big plus for them as the window to win is open for more than just this year.
Obviously, there are bigger level stars out there to acquire but if they believe Robert and Jimenez will be back, they might look at the cheaper players that are going to be available for trade. Either way, we just want to see the White Sox do what they have to do to give themselves a chance to go deep in the playoffs.
