    Chris Sale is Just Not Going to Happen

    by DrungoHazewood


    Sale just isn't going to happen. Why would any team trade a top-shelf pitcher who's signed to below market rates for the next five-and-a-half seasons? That what you build around, not trade. Not unless some team just goes absolutely silly and offers up a ridculous package. 

    For the Orioles to acquire Sale they would have to offer most of their top prospects, meaning they'd be taking a huge risk. You're taking all of the diversified risk of Bundy/Gausman/Harvey/Rodriguez/etc and placing it all on Chris Sale's UCL.
