I learned something that makes me want to throw up!!

SDS

I don’t know how on earth I was clueless about this but my White Sox traded away Tatis Jr for James F shields. Like you got to be kidding me. That’s it I’m watching volleyball now. Maybe they got an UT

SDS

You have the white sox logo as your avatar...you should be ashamed my friend lol. It was a terrible trade for your sox. I feel bad

SDS

To be fair, he was a 17 year old amateur free agent when they traded him.

17 year old that had just signed...

At least you got Eloy for Quintana...

Yeah like literally had never played a professional game.

SDS

The Cardinals were the only other team to scout him, but didn't want to pay the 200k more the White Sox were willing to

SDS

Christ. Imagine if the White Sox had him too! That's scary

Huh? If he was an amateur free agent than he wouldn’t have been traded. I think you mean he was traded before he ever played a professional game. He was signed by the White Sox as an international player from the players pool and was at that time a free agent.

SDS

Acuna was signed for 100,000 after multiple teams passed on him

SDS

I know the feeling brother. All too well. My current biggest frustration is Ketel Marte. I knew he was going to something special too.

SDS

That stinks but he was so young and you never know who’s gonna pan out.. I feel bad for the Pirates still lol That archer trade was so so bad.

SDS

Freaking nuts man. Yea I’m sure there tons of gut wrenching trades like that

SDS

Hindsight can hurt, for every team. Think about the Royals. Albert Pujols is living and playing in their city, but they passed on him 13 times because he was a little tubby.

SDS

Just like the cubs traded eloy Jimenez and gleybor Torres. That makes me sick to think about that.

SDS

Still early of Course, but it is looking like one of the all time worst trades. Up there with Babe for cash and the Chris Archer trade(more recent, but glasnow and Meadows are both young and well worth it for archer)

Any time my white sox friends bring that up i ask the how James Shields is doing lol, Eloy is solid but Tatis is a superstar

I didn't know I had to break it down so much. They signed him as a 17 year old international free agent. They traded him before he ever played a professional game.

Ok, he was actually signed when he was 16 In 2015

I mean the Cubs did get a world series from those trades but yes it hurt/hurts to give them up.

SDS

It was a bad trade, but I still think Pedro Martinez for Delino Deshields (Sr.) ranks ahead of it as one of the worst of all time.
