Let's figure this out once and for all.

This might seem like an impossible task, but don't you worry: with a little bit of effort, we can figure this out. This one neat trick will help you develop the perfect trade offer for one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Take whatever offer for Chris Sale you think would work for the White Sox, and then add more to it. No, more than that. Y'all are still not getting it. It's Chris Sale, okay? Chris. Sale. You know, the young ace with the stellar track record and arguably the best contract in the entire sport? Keep adding players. Players. Plural! No, this is not what we meant by an Allen Craig trade to the White Sox. Don't you dare even mention Bryce Brentz's name. Actual, promising ballplayers. Ones the White Sox would actively want.

You know what? It's not going to happen, so just forget it. He's not going anywhere and you aren't taking this seriously, anyway.
