Rasmus has the same numbers rios did at his age. Wasn't gamel a top prospect once?

We are not getting Mat Gamel for Thornton/Rios.

Maybe he heard "a pack of camels".

don't get the love for Rasmus.

Mine was just a joke (or an attempt at one).  Rasmus is overrated as far as I'm concerned.

And y'all thought you could hide from me?!  Hope everyone is well.

Liked the EJax trade, especially the dumping of Teahen's salary.  Frasor is a very good addition to our bullpen, and Stewart.....well, hopefully "Coop Can Fix Him." 

I've always liked Q, but I wouldn't mind getting a couple of top prospects for him.

Getting rid of Rios is a dream I won't let myself have...too good to be true.

I predict Dunn hits 20+ home runs the rest of this season.....but I have been drinking.

I just love how Wshfl makes up these arbitrary nicknames for people.

Rosenthal reporting that the Rangers are interested in Thornton and Sox are asking for SP Derek Holland in return.  Then he "tweeted" that The Rangers will only send Holland if we include a SP such as Danks in the deal.

And strengthen a team we'd have to play in the playoffs if we made it? Don't see that happening.

2:11pm: The White Sox are telling teams Danks is not available, tweets SI's Jon Heyman.  It seems that Rosenthal threw his name out there as more of an example, anyway.
