    Less than 2 weeks till the deadline on August 1 and things are heating up!

    Who is buying and who is selling? Love this time of year!

    Sale scratched from Saturday's start
    Update:6:31pm ET

    Interestingly, the White Sox have scratched Chris Sale from Saturday's scheduled start. It's not because he's ill, as was originally reported. It's not because he's been traded either. The White Sox say Sale was sent home after being involved in a "non-physical" incident in the clubhouse. It sounds as though Sale was involved in a heated argument with a teammate or someone on the coaching staff or in the front office.

    Yankees have to deal Beltran and the two closers. This is fool's gold.

    Rebellious Chicago superstar clashes with management, walks/booted off the job.

    Where have I heard this one before?

    The hosts on the MLB channel on Sirius got scammed by a fake Twitter account and reported Sale was traded to Texas, then had to admit they'd been deceived. Pretty funny.

    Wasn't Sale crying because Adam LaRoche's kid can't be in the clubhouse anymore?

    I don't get the bidding war over Andrew Cashner, I know he was once a top prospect, but did they not see this beaut from a few weeks back?

    Dodgers are fucked. They are playoff contenders with Kershaw, but now he is out three more weeks and possibly the rest of the season if he needs back surgery. There's talk of them going after Longoria for the stretch run.

    Yeah, he went off on the GM. He struck out 274 batters last year, he can say pretty much anything he wants.

    He's a stud that makes no sense to keep. Sox aren't winning anything for a few years. He'll be past his prime. As it stands, Sale is hurting the franchise. He gets tons of wins, stops losing streaks, and keeps the sox from being very bad and getting quality draft picks.

    If they could get a handful of top prospects and then trade and draft more... they should do it.

    They apparently asked the Rangers for Mazara, Gallo and Profar, which would be an insane comeback if they could get it or something similar.

    White Sox need to keep the dissension in house, other teams are gonna start lowballing them if they smell a hint of desperation.

    They should definitely deal Beltran and Chapman.

    I think they'd be silly to get rid of Miller though. He might be the best reliever in baseball and is locked up for 2 more years at only 9 mill per.

    Haven't read the whole thread so sorry if this has already been posted but apparently Sale cut up the team's throwback game shirts so they couldn't be worn. :scratch: :snicker:

    ETA: Snort has it.
