Seven Former White Sox on 2018 Hall of Fame Ballot

MLB released the 2018 Hall of Fame ballot Monday afternoon. The list consists of an absolutely absurd 33 candidates, some of whom will be unfairly looked over because of the stubborn insistence that each voter can only vote for 10 players per year regardless of backlog.

Hypothetical landing spots for Abreu, Garcia

I’m just going to get this out of the way right from the start: I’m not advocating the White Sox trade Jose Abreu or Avisail Garcia. There are logical arguments to be made for trading either or both.
