About that report from this morning that teams are shooting offers to the White Sox for Chris Sale? Eh, don’t think too hard about it:
I asked a GM who is in the market for pitching about Chris Sale. “He’s not out there,” the GM said. #whitesox

The White Sox need to rebuild, owner Jerry Reinsdorf says that no one is untouchable and Chris Sale would bring back a lot of pieces. But what he’s unlikely to bring back is a young, cheap top-flight starter. That’s what he is. And it’s better to rebuild around that than anything else.
