White Sox get Estevan Florial, Miguel Andujar, Tyler Wade, Tyler Austin, and Jake Cave

Yankees get Jose Abreu

White Sox add some quality prospects to an already loaded system for Abreu who doesn't fit in with their timeline.

The Yankees get their everyday DH and middle of the order bat who also provides insurance at 1B with Bird being injury prone who is on a very reasonable contract for his production.

Maybe, I guess.

I think the White Sox can get a better quality over quantity trade. Also, moving 5 players from the 40-man roster in a trade is almost completely unlikely.

thestatbook, that is a fair point but Florial isn’t on the 40 man roster. Even four is still a lot though.

I will say, I think it's a better trade than what you've come up with lately. I just don't know if the White Sox would want a bunch of lottery tickets, or more of a sure thing for Abreu.

Personally, I'd take multiple guys, but that's just my opinion.

Okay then going along with what you said, what about adding someone like Acevedo or Abreu and taking out Austin and Cave. That’s a little bit more quality and a little less quantity. They’d be getting two top 100 prospects in Florial and Andujar plus Wade who is extremely versatile which is very valuable in today’s game and he just won the batting title in triple A. Plus a high upside arm in Acevedo and Abreu who aren’t far from being Major League ready.

By auality, I mean a better player headlining.

Think Chance Adams.

I agree with statbook, the White Sox are looking for quality over quantity at this point. They wouldn't be interested in Austin bc they have Matt Davidson and they have guys like Leury Garcia and Alen Hansen to play the utility role that probably best suits Wade.

I think Chance would have to be included (Adams, Andujar and Guzman? ), but a deal that has Florial, Sheffield?, Andujar, and a flamethrower like Acevedo or Guzman would be intriguing too just because the organization loves guys that near 100mph with the FB.

But if Chance is not included, are the Yankees going to trade 3 or 4 of their top 10 prospects for a guy who's only controlled for 2 years?
