Re: Scoreboard Watching 2013 (Part 2)
Stats on the season
Crain is probably the single most likely player to change teams this summer. The White Sox aren’t going to be in the playoff picture this year, Crain is a free agent at year’s end, and with Jake Peavy hitting the disabled list, he’s probably their single best trade chip to try and bring back some young talent. Toss in the fact that he’s only making $4.5 million in total this year, and Crain doesn’t come with any of the things that might hold a team back from acquiring Papelbon. And while he might not have the proven closer label, he’s developed into a guy who has earned a shot at a ninth inning gig.
Someone is going to scoop this guy up at the deadline and have a major weapon for the late innings. Now that the Padres appear to be in the race, time to pilfer the ChiSox, somehow.
