December is here and the Christmas joy is near. For some teams more so than others.
In Chicago, the White Sox made perhaps the most riveting trade we will see all offseason. Shipping out Chris Sale, Chicago is in full rebuild mode with more moves on the horizon.
Aroldis Chapman always wanted to go back to New York even after they traded him to the Cubs midseason in 2016. So the two sides made a deal happen.
Adam Eaton moves from the White Sox to the Nationals, and Chicago now carries a bundle of prospects they did not have before.
Meanwhile, the Astros stock up on veterans Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran.
The offseason is far from over. Trades and signings are sure to ramp up, with some of the best talent still waiting in the wings for a big contract.
This week on The Hot Corner Podcast, Mick Tidrow and John Gordon break down all the major deals and trades of the offseason to date. Catch the show each Thursday during the school year from 7-8 pm on 91.3 WCRD or WCRD.net.
