The Catbird Speaks 7.21.17 – Another trade, Moncada’s promotion, and more

Collin Whitchurch (@cowhitchurch) and Nick Schaefer (@Nick_BPSS) got together to react to the latest White Sox trade as well as the promotion of heralded prospect Yoan Moncada. Among the talking points:

  • -The return for Todd Frazier, David Robertson, and Tommy Kahnle.
  • -The high difference of opinions on Blake Rutherford.
  • -Whether trading Kahnle was the right thing to do.
  • -Any other trades likely? Does anyone want Melky Cabrera?
  • -The insanely mediocre American League Central
  • -Yoan Moncada’s promotion and what to watch from him the rest of the season
  • -Other prospects who might get called up this season. Reynaldo Lopez? Lucas Giolito?

Also be sure to check out our summary of Wednesday’s deal, as well as BP’s transaction analysis. You can also read a more in depth take on the decision to trade Kahnle by Ryan Schultz, and Collin’s closer look at Moncada’s White Sox debut. Follow us on Twitter @BPSouthSide.
