The Chicago White Sox have had a very up and down start to the 2022 season. They just lost a series to the Boston Red Sox who remain one of the hottest teams in Major League Baseball right now. There are a lot of things that this team needs to do in order to get over the hump and go on a streak.

It all starts with the second half of the Crosstown Classic against the Chicago Cubs. The White Sox took both games at Wrigley Field earlier this month and it started a long winning streak from there. They need more of that as it shifts to Guaranteed Rate Field for two.

The White Sox and Cubs have made some trades over the years in addition to playing one another. There are some that worked out for the Cubs and some that worked out for the Sox. If they were to make a trade this year that helped both organizations out, it might look like this:

The Chicago White Sox could use some bullpen help at this point of the season.

The Chicago White Sox need to add to their bullpen. When it is going at its best, it is one of the best bullpens in the American League but the bottom of it isn’t the best. They could use some depth on the cheap and the Cubs might be able to provide it.

For the second year in a row, the Cubs kind of has a nice bullpen on a bad team out of nowhere. This year, someone might pay something for 36-year-old Chris Martin. The White Sox could trade any one of their depth prospects for this guy and shore up the pen.

Micker Adolfo deserves a chance to play in the show and show what he can do and the Cubs can probably provide that for him. Landing a solid bullpen arm that has a 3.00 ERA right now might be worth a try for both teams.
