The Chicago White Sox has been known as the low-risk/cheap organization in Major League Baseball for a long time. It would be so nice to see them shock the world and make one of the biggest splash sports will have seen in a long time.
A player of Juan Soto’s caliber isn’t out there to be had very long. If they were, every team would go into every year thinking they can win the World Series. He is on the block because of the fact that he and the Washington Nationals can’t get a deal done.
The White Sox don’t have the deepest farm system so it is obvious that they would need to include some of their Major League guys in this deal if it were to go down.
In the highly unlikely event that something like this happens, the Chicago White Sox would need to trade some (if not all) of these three players:
Yoan Moncada’s time with the White Sox has certainly been interesting.
Yoan Moncada has had a very up and down career with the Chicago White Sox. He has been elite with his glove at third base but he can’t hasn’t hit a high level for long stretches at a time in a long while. We know he can do it because he has before but it has been a while.
If the Nationals can be sold on the fact that his ceiling is through the roof, they might consider him as a part of a deal (if it was with the White Sox).
Moncada can be an impactful player in an MLB lineup so he is valuable but he isn’t valuable enough to be the centerpiece. Multiple MLB-ready players would be going along with him.
