Chris Sale 2017 Outlook in Fantasy Baseball Talk Posted December 10, 2016 13 minutes ago, mysonx3 said: The fact that the Red Sox aren't far from a World Series is exactly WHY they're in win now mode. They're good right now, and good teams need to maximize their windows because you never know how long they'll last. It would make no sense for a bad team to be in win now mode. And, while the White Sox do (or did) have a good core, the lack of depth was killer and wasn't a fixable issue. You say "if they can just stop giving starts to Shields-Danks-Puke". Well, duh! Every team would be good if you took away the things that make them bad. But as is, the White Sox were nowhere near having the depth to compete, so it was smart to blow it up That's not the point. The point is the White Sox were bound to improve this year simply by sticking with a rotation of Sale-Quintana-Rodon-Gonzalez-Fulmer. By not giving Shields and Danks and whoever another combined 30 starts with a 6.00 ERA they are immediately a more competitive team. I never heard of this "they should dismantle because they lack depth". What team does that? I can understand dismantling because your team has just a few valuable pieces but the White Sox have many competitive players which is why they started out well last season.
