The White Sox wanted major-league-ready talent if they were going to trade some of their established, big-name players at this year's trade deadline.
Jesse Crain took the first step toward perhaps being traded next week when he threw off the mound on Tuesday.
Chris Sale wanted to face Miguel Cabrera on Monday night.
The White Sox coaching staff didn’t like the matchup and called for a free pass to Sale’s dismay.
Max Scherzer hasn’t needed much run support this season.
The middle of his order gave him plenty to start, and the White Sox defense kicked in a few more for good measure.
