The Chicago White Sox would be perfect for Ohtani or Trout
The Chicago White Sox have had an awful season this year. They came in with expectations that they were going to win the American League Central and compete in the playoffs for the World Series. Now, it is likely that they don’t even make the playoffs at all.
As bad as it has been for the White Sox this season, it is even worse for a lot of other teams in the league. One of the teams having an even more miserable year is the Los Angeles Angels. They started off really hot and then became so cool that they fell way out f the race.
It has recently come out that they are likely a team that is going to be sold to a new owner. That could change the league in a few different ways. That could mean that both Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout are moved so that a new owner doesn’t come into that financial commitment right away.
Every team in the league should want one of those two guys. Very few teams would be able to afford both when Ohtani’s next deal is signed but landing one of them would change any franchise for the foreseeable future.
The Chicago White Sox should consider making a big splash like this soon.
The White Sox should really be all in on that. Obviously, the better investment would be Shohei Ohtani because he is an ace pitcher and an elite offensive player. Mike Trout is a very good centerfielder and a very good hitter. Both have been recognized as the best player in the league.
It might be unlikely but it is fun to think about how perfectly they would both fit into this organization right now. The White Sox could certainly use a spark like that right now.
With the 26th-ranked farm system at the moment, they don’t have as much prospect capital as some other teams that would be interested but there is plenty of talent at the top of the MLB roster.
With guys like Colson Montgomery, Oscar Colas, and Noah Schultz in the minors combined with talents like Luis Robert, Eloy Jimenez, or Andrew Vaughn amongst others, a deal could certainly get done one way or another.
Regardless of where Trout or Ohtani land, it is going to be interesting to see how it all shakes out. If it were the White Sox, that would be extremely new to the fanbase but also incredible for the team going forward.
