    I’m not sure the White Sox need the cash, but this could be a reasonable package.

      Burger and a pitcher. That’s a great package. Both teams benefit greatly.

      • John Bitzer

        Too bad the White Sox don’t have a guy named Fries. That would be an even better package.

        • Tim Estadt

          DBack could have a 4 5 punch in the lineup of burger and beer.

          • John Bitzer

            Nice! They clearly need to start a fast-food chain on the side.

    the way burger has been playing lately i don’t really think they’d be thinking about trading him for this type of player, thompson for escobar straight up could make some sense tho

      Generally, I would agree. Burger killing it in AAA after missing almost 4 years of development is a great story. But he’s already 25 years old and where do the White Sox play him for the foreseeable future? Physically, he’s limited to 1B, 3B and DH (3rd might be a stretch given the injury history). But 1B seems to be planned to be split between Abreu and Vaughn, 3B is Moncada’s to lose, and DH would be either of Abreu’s, Vaughn’s, Jimenez’, or maybe Mercedes’ (if he gets going again) for years to come. I saw that they were trying him out at 2B, but a 6’3″ 230lb second baseman is a big reach to try and get his bat in the lineup, and what happens when Madrigal comes back? I think selling high on him to a team like the Dbacks who still seem to be convinced that they can return to competition with minor changes to the roster would be best.
