White Sox Once Again Saying They're Out

26

The key this whole time should have been to make sure the Rays aren't bidding against themselves in my opinion. Rosenthal seems to believe that Rizzo won't budge and that Dunn will be staying put unless some mystery team swoops in. I still think Tampa is the best fit for both the Nats and the Rays. They have a legitimate need, a wealth of phenomenal prospects, and legitimate motivation to pull the trigger with Crawford and Pena set to hit free agency. Their core is strong enough so that they're definitely contenders next season again, but they'll never have a better chance at winning it all than they do this year. Dunn could well be the piece that pushes them over the top. Man am I disappointed I'll be at work all day tomorrow!
