    See link for tweets from MLB. I called it and hate that I was least I won't have to see his horrible arm on the White Sox next year. I weep over the lost potential of Nick Madrigal, to the Cubs no less. Filthy reliever...and that isn't meant as a compliment. IF relievers were good, they would start. Throwing 15 pitches twice or three times a week, a good pitcher that does not make.

    And Tweeter SouthSide Showdown, you don't know baseball. I'm embarrassed that you say that you like the White Sox. "The Chicago White Sox didn’t put Craig Kimbrel in a position to succeed. As a result, this era was short lived!" What the heck? What do you mean the Sox didn't put him in a position to succeed? He is a short inning reliever! If he only is willing to pitch in the ninth inning with a lead....what kind of pitcher does that make him? Weak!

    MLB World Reacts To The Craig Kimbrel News

    The Chicago White Sox acquired reliever Craig Kimbrel from the Chicago Cubs at the trade deadline anticipating he would help fortify their bullpen for a World Series run.

    Instead, Kimbrel was a disaster on the South Side. A closer with the Cubs and throughout his big league career, the White Sox tried to use Kimbrel as a setup man.

    The move backfired spectacularly. In 24 regular season games with the Pale Hose, he posted a 2-2 record with a 5.09 ERA. In three appearances in the ALDS against the Houston Astros, Kimbrel surrendered three runs in two innings.

    Earlier today, a report from USA TODAY indicated the White Sox are planning on exercising Kimbrel’s $16 million option for next season with the intention of trading him. That’s a far cry from what the team hoped for when it added the eight-time All-Star.

    In order to land Kimbrel, the White Sox surrendered highly-regarded second baseman Nick Madrigal and hard-throwing reliever Codi Heuer. Those are two solid pieces.

    It seems unlikely that Chicago will land anywhere close to that package in return if they deal Kimbrel this offseason, but apparently they are going to try and get what they can.
