Last Saturday afternoon, the Chicago White Sox fortified their pitching staff by acquiring James Shields from the San Diego Padres. Analysis of that trade can be found here, but to summarize, I really liked the deal for Chicago, as the cost was small from both a player and a financial perspective.
Unfortunately for the Chi-Sox, their roster still has some major holes to fill, most notably on offense. While many have assumed that the area to add to would be in Chicago’s outfield, I feel that their is another route that the team can take. That would be making a run at Jonathan Lucroy of the Milwaukee Brewers.
