Since we don't have one, and we might as well have one, I figured I would just get it over with and make one. Discuss all the goings-on, what teams should do, what they're not doing, the possible role of prospects in transactions . . .
The Blue Jays have acquired Sergio Santos from the White Sox for Nestor Molina. Santos is a killer pickup, surprise surprise out of the AA regime (can we just, you know, not let these guys trade with anybody already?). He's already devastatingly effective, he's only getting better as he learns how to actually pitch, and he's under team control for a good few years yet. Needless to say, whoa. Congrats Blue Jays fans, you just hit the jackpot.
As for the White Sox, the rebuild is on. Molina obviously is an interesting prospect, and one would presume that the White Sox think of him as a starter first if they were willing to swap him for Santos, a more known quantity in the pen. This might not be the last we hear from the White Sox at the meetings with virtually the entire team up for trade, including two quality starters in Danks and Floyd. Of course, as they apparently asked for both Manny Banuelos and Jesus Montero from the Yankees in a deal to acquire Danks, this all might be much easier said than done . . .
