07:13 AM ET 06.25 | Players can feel the clock ticking on the South Side. [White Sox] players have taken stock in who could be moved before the trade deadline. Slugger Adam Dunn believes few teammates should feel confident they would still play for the White Sox after the July 31st nonwaiver deadline. General manager Rick Hahn surmises he'd be a popular man if individual players off his underachieving roster were made available. Hahn hasn't yet made that declaration. ... "Chris Sale," Dunn said. "He's immune. Other than that, I'd imagine it's fair game. Chris ain't going nowhere. They would have to get a complete big league, I think, for him. A big league team. I mean like you'd trade him to the Rangers and get (Elvis) Andrus, (Adrian) Beltre, (Derek) Holland, (Matt) Harrison. Who else they got?"

My elbow hurts just from looking at that picture of Sale's arm in motion.

I think Adam Dunn is pretty safe. He is not going anywhere. for all the wrong reasons.

I was thinking the same. As poorly as these guys have performed this year, who would want to trade for them?

Rios, Ramirez, Konerko, De Aza, Crain, Lindstrom, Santiago, Reed, Thornton, Peavy, Quintana, Sale.....and even Dunn. All these guys have significant trade value to a contending team.

If you don't understand that, you don't understand baseball.

I think it is because there is always some team out there who thinks they can turn a guy around, and it is mans nature to grab the lowest hanging fruit on the tree.

Do you really want to trade Konerko?

Short answer: YES

June 25, 2013  02:07 PM ET

Peavy. Konerko. Dunn. Rios. Beckham. Ramirez. All expendable. Just don't be stupid and trade away young pitching, seeing that is the exact asset you would be looking to get back as a rebuilding team.

June 25, 2013  02:35 PM ET

Keep Reed, Sale, Quintana, Gillaspie. That's it.

To be fair to Dunn, he is on pace for 40HRs and around 100 RBI.

It is the ave. and the contract and that aawwfull year a little while back that would scare the heck out of any team.
