What would move mean for club, well-liked infielder?

Baseball has the weirdest arbitration system where players get more in arbitration than they would as free agents. Just nutty.

6 Arenado trade proposals that could work

Quote
3) South Siders finally land a superstar

White Sox get: 3B Nolan Arenado and cash

Rockies get: RHP Dylan Cease, OF Luis Alexander Basabe (White Sox No. 7 prospect) and C/1B Zack Collins (White Sox No. 9 prospect)

Why it could work: The White Sox have been trying to top off their rebuild by adding a star from outside the organization, landing Yasmani Grandal but missing on Manny Machado, Bryce Harper and Zack Wheeler over the last two winters. Enter Arenado, whose all-around game and leadership would boost the young roster. In this scenario, Yoán Moncada -- who had a breakout 2019 after moving from second to third base -- would put his speed and athleticism to use in center field, filling one of Chicago’s holes. And getting a significant amount of money (perhaps $30 million?) to help accommodate Arenado’s salary might motivate the Sox to move Cease. That would be a tough pill to swallow, but the club could turn to the free agent market for pitching help, or use second baseman Nick Madrigal (MLB’s No. 40 prospect) as trade bait while moving Moncada back to the keystone.

Speaking of Cease, the 23-year-old has electric stuff that misses bats, which is key at Coors Field, and he already has 73 big league innings (and 81 K's) under his belt. Also 23, Basabe is a little further away -- he was limited by injury to 74 games in 2019, mostly at Double-A -- but he’s a switch-hitter with speed, some pop and a good enough defensive profile to stick in center. Collins, like Cease, is just about ready after making his MLB debut this year, and he brings plenty of power and patience at the plate. While it’s unclear whether he has the receiving skills to catch full time, the Rockies would be able to give him the opportunity.

Who says no? The White Sox. Pitching remains a major area of need, and Chicago is counting on Cease to be a big part of the rotation in 2020. The White Sox could fill second base and center field with Madrigal and fellow prospect Luis Robert, respectively, allowing Moncada to avoid another position switch.

Lol.... No way do the Rockies ever take that, and no way do the Sox do that.

I'd be okay with that trade; Cease is still unproven and those other two guys are probably going to be okay at best.

Yeah, I would not hesitate. Those other two are nothing, Cease could be real good, but for Arenado, see ya.

Keuchel, 3 years for 55.5M, so 18.5 per. Not that bad, long as he stays healthy. Almost Buehrle-like, seems consistent.

Years and money seem very good to me; color me on board with this one.

.....and no loss of their 2nd round pick for signing him as Keuchel was exempt from a qualifying offer since he didn't sign with Atlanta until after the June draft.

A lot of smoke around an Edwin Encarnacion signing by the beloved.   I don't love it, but I don't hate it.   But I do love that the Sox have recognized that the AL Central window has opened (and that the Chicago Sports Abyss window has also opened), and are going for it in a relatively reasonable manner.
