The front of our rotation will improve on its own. That's what young guys do.

The only front line guy I could see us getting is Samardzija

They just signed former Brave Kelly Johnson as a backup in case they don't get Cano back.

He might not improve as a player, but he can't play any worse than he did last season. There's no way the Braves eat the remaining 4 guaranteed years left on his contract. They have no choice but to hope he turns it around.

I can see Uggla being dealt, but I'm not sure how much better we are after. La Stella is promising, but if he doesn't produce well right way, we could be screwed.

We need a proven frontline starter and we have to hope Gattis can hit like a full-time catcher. Losing B-Mac is going to hurt us in the short-term.

For all the good moves wren has made that albatross is going to linger for 4 more years. Could be one of the worst moves in baseball history. I can't wait to watch him hit .167 making 17 M in 2017

White Sox said they would trade Sale for the right deal. It would take a ton to get him though.

We would probably have a better shot at getting Samardzja from the Cubs. I can't help but think that if we hadn't signed Upton, we could've used that money to sign a veteran frontline starter this season like Garza.
